Sears explains the biochemistry of food and its effect on our bodies in an understandable way, and makes the reader re-think what we assume to be healthy eating habits. This book has changed the way I think about what I eat, and I feel better after incorporating some of his ideas into my diet. Following the Zone Diet to a T seems a little complicated, but Sears gets the reader to understand why it is important to follow, and the overall idea is very easy to put into practice.
I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to diets in general because it's such a huge industry. That being said I enjoyed the Zone, and when I followed it I was the leanest I'd ever been while preserving muscle, and I felt great. I made a few of my own slight modifications though. I had a cheat day once a week (thank you for the idea Tim Ferris and Bill Phillips) and I increased my daily protein intake, as I was trying to increase muscle mass.
For the negatives, I think it's going overboard trying to
Книгата е написана много добре и всичко е обяснено лесно и изпълнимо. Голям брой мои познати ми препоръчаха тази диета, която всъщност не е диета, а начин на живот, като безкрайно ефективна. И всички научни данни предполагат това наистина да е така. Макар да се оказа, че това не е моят режим на хранене, се възползвах от някои доста приложими и приятни съвети и рецепти. Препоръчвам да прочетете, заедно с „Ние и зоната“, където пък има чудни рецепти.
Big for crossfitters, I read to learn more about the hype. It's a good alternative to Paleo. Probably closer to what would actually work for me. The author makes a good attempt to simplify what is a very complex set of recommendations, but I still left the book thinking that following the plan outlined would be too much work.

Recommends it for: anyone wanting to improve health
As far as diet books go - this seemed pretty good. Balancing out proteins, fats, & carbs.. it gave me a few new ideas for my trips to the grocery store. (like sticking to the perimeter!)
Very informative and logical approach to diet. My only complaint is all of the blocking can seem complicated and overwhelming at first
Started reading because its recommended from the crossfit community as is the Paleo Diet which I have already read.
I actually liked teh recipes, and it gave me a lot of energy. I felt healthy, but I can't say I lost any weight.

I think this is probably the way to live.
