Now that the New Year has begun and many of us have made a resolution to lose some weight, let me introduce the Dr Sears Zone 1-2-3 program. I have tried many diets and they just do not work. I have lost weight only to gain back what I lost and more. Thanks to the folks at the Zone diet, I got the opportunity to try the Zone Standard Program.
Weight loss has never been easier. You are eating the foods you like to eat and not feeling hungry between meals. That's the Zone promise. Each ZoneFast™ Weight-Loss Package contains a variety of popular breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack items along with our structured meal planner to help you get acquainted with preparing your Zone meals and put you on the fast track to losing weight. All of the foods contain 14gms of Zone protein that works in your digestive system to tell your brain that you are full. For more information on how the Zone diet works please visit the site.
When he package arrived, I was impressed with the look of the food. All of the baked goods had to be refrigerated to prevent spoilage. Each item was individually wrapped. The portions were large and I felt full after eating them. At first, I though that the food was going to taste horrible and bland but it was quite different. The breads, snacks, desserts and snack bars were soft, chewy and delicious. Look at all of the food you get with the standard program. Included was a guide and other useful information to start you in the right direction.
My favorite was the cinnamon buns. I heated them in the microwave and they melted in my mouth. I love pasta and rice and we ate it 2-3 times a week. The Fusilli and Orzo was a great alternative for dinner. I mixed them with some chicken, tomatoes and spices and had a fantastic dinner. I have learned portion control while on the program. I have lost 5 lbs since starting the program after Christmas and overall I feel better. I continue to exercise 3x week and I drink a large amount of water.

My kids tried the pizza crust in the white and multi-grain variety when I was at work. They liked the taste of the multi-grain one better. They even took a picture of the pizza before they ate it. I would have not added the pepperoni but they are growing kids and do not have a weight problem. I encourage them to eat healthy whenever possible. It happened to be turkey pepperoni so it was not as bad.
Overall I was impressed with the program, and I recommend that you give it a try. The site has a large recipe collection and educational material to get you started and on track. Every Zone customer is assigned a coach to help you succeed.
