The Zone Diet recommends:

  • Carbohydrates should be twice the size of the protein portion. Fruits and vegetables are the preferred source of carbohydrates.
  • Proteins should be eaten with every meal and at every snack. These include chicken, fish, beef, turkey, egg whites, low-fat cheeses, tofu, veal or low-fat pork.
  • Monounsaturated fats such as olive oil, almonds or avocados are the ideal choice of fats.
  • Supplementation with high-dose omega-3 fish oil is also a very important component of the Zone Diet regime.

The Zone Diet does not actually prohibit any particular food group; however the following food should be consumed in moderation-

  • Food with high fat and carbohydrates such as brown rice, grains, starches, and pastas should be avoided.
  • Fruits like bananas, raisins, grapes and figs.
  • Vegetables like potatoes, peas, corn and carrot.
  • Avoid sugar in all forms.
  • Avoid alcohol.
  • Avoid beverages containing caffeine.
