Zone Diet created by Dr. Barry Sears is about meal ratio. The formula is 40% carbs, 30% protein, and 30% fats (sometimes called 40:30:30) and the formula must be followed at every meal.

This diet mat to complex and hard to follow. For more information, you can read book called The Zone : Revolutionary Life Plan to Put Your Body in Total Balance for Permanent Weight Loss by Barry Sears or search the internet. Some websites offer a significant amount of support for the Zone Diet (some even deliver meals and there are also a number of web sites with programs that have substantially simplified the Zone.

It’s a good program and would be a great improvement for anyone who currently has a typical western diet.
