Twenty-five years and counting. This is notable for a diet that, since it was born, has had a significant following on both sides of the ocean. We are talking about the Zone, the dietary strategy developed by Barry Sears, which still has a lot to say today. Its purpose, which is also its strong point, is to properly balance what we put on our plate every day, from breakfast to dinner, including snacks.


Zone Diet: the 40-30-30 formula

Food becomes a true ally in the Zone Diet, thanks to a precise combination of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Its formula is simple: 40-30-30. For the three main meals and at least two snacks, 40% of calories must come from carbohydrates, 30% from proteins, and the remaining 30% from fats.

Zone Diet: the importance of omega-3

Food and omega-3 fatty acids. According to Barry Sears, an adequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids is a fundamental part of a balanced dietary strategy. However, it’s indispensable that, should they be taken through supplementation, omega-3 fatty acids have these fundamental characteristics:

  • are obtained by molecular distillation, a process that allows purification from pollutants
  • have a total concentration of omega-3 equal to at least 75%
  • contain at least 60% EPA + DHA
  • contain EPA and DHA in a 2:1 ratio
  • are certified by qualified laboratories (IFOS)

Green light to omega-3

So, yes to omega-3. This applies whether you rely on fish or, in case of an increased need, on a supplement. In this instance, it’s essential that the omega-3 from fish oil in supplement form is purified and concentrated.
