The Zone Diet aims at eating foods, which control the body’s insulin production.This means that that the dieter can lose weight without having to skip any meal or snack. Instead the dieters have to keep a close watch on the calorie consumption while eating - a meal should not exceed 500 calories and a snack should not exceed 100 calories.

The Zone Diet encourages eating foods such as fresh vegetables, fruits, leafy green vegetables, sufficient proteins, monounsaturated fats and eight glasses of water daily.
