~ CLOSED ~ The ZoneFast Weight Loss Program - Review and Giveaway


Like many people I have been trying to lose a few pounds and keep it off.  My plan has been trying to eat healthier and going for daily 30 - 45 minute walks.  I find walking to be not only great exercise but also very relaxing.
I recently had the opportunity to review 2 weeks’ worth of  ZoneFast foods .  To be completely honest, I was a bit worried and not quite sure what to expect.  However, being a carboholic and knowing I had nothing to lose (except, hopefully, a few pounds) I agreed to review a two-week Zone Fast Program from Dr. Sears.


I was very surprised by all the great products in both of the one week shipments. The shipment also contained a recipe booklet, convenient one pack per day nutrients that amplify Zone Foods’ anti-inflammatory effects and a two week menu plan.  You augment the foods you received with fresh fruits, vegetables and proteins.  You have to refrigerate all the bread and brownies upon delivery to maintain freshness or freeze those items within the first three days.  That’s because the food is fresh, made with a patented baking technology, and will spoil if not eaten.

Cellular inflammation is what makes us gain weight, accelerate the development of chronic disease, and decrease our physical performance. Although this type of inflammation is below the perception of pain, you can measure it and according to Dr. Sears, more than 90% of us have high levels of it.  If the levels of cellular inflammation remain elevated, it can become a silent killer.
Apparently, there is no drug that can reverse cellular inflammation. It is caused by the diet and can only be effectively reversed by an anti-inflammatory diet.
The Zone Diet is clinically proven to reverse cellular inflammation by maintaining the inflammatory hormones generated by the food we eat within a Zone that is not high, but not too low.
Essentially, Zone eating consists of balancing protein, fat and carbohydrates in every meal to control insulin production and help the body burn excess fat more efficiently. The diet also recommends limiting processed carbohydrates like grain products, starchy vegetables like potatoes and corn, and sugar. and drinking plenty of water.
During the two weeks that I followed the Zone 1-2-3 program, (I have to come clean, I did cheat a couple times) I would estimate that I lost 4 or 5 pounds. I'm not entirely sure as I threw my scale out about three years ago and vowed to never again own one. But, my clothes seemed to fit better and didn't feel as tight.  I also felt increased energy and the motivation to keep going with a healthy diet and exercise regime.
BUY IT -
Purchase the Zone Fast Weight Loss Program on line and it will include 2 weeks’ worth of food, a personal zone coach to work with you every step of the way, daily essentials (Convenient 1 pack per day nutrients that amplify Zone Foods’ anti-inflammatory effects), Healthy Recipe Guide, and a Zone living easy 1-2-3 booklet.  All for $179.00 
WIN IT -
Zone Diet has been generous enough to offer three Older Mommy Still Yummy readers a ZoneFast two weeks Weight Loss Program of their own. That’s 3 prizes worth $179.00 each!

I learned that cellular inflammation is the underlying cause of not only weight gain and the acceleration of chronic disease, but also the reason behind decreasing physical, emotional, and mental performance.

Losing weight is a main challenge that mainly people go through these days. Not only it takes a lot of time and effort but it surely additionally takes a lot of sacrifices. Losing weight is relatively easy when you've got the best weight loss programs in hand. However, a correct commitment and motivation is probably the most important essential aspect in choosing and sticking to the weight loss program to receive preferable output.

I absolutely need something that works to kick me onto the right path during the holidays.

I learned that "14 grams of Zone Protein supplies the same amount of protein as in a four egg whites" and I really like that the website offers a "what to expect" section. Really helpful!

I like the Dining Out Tips because whenever I do eat out I never know what to order that won't mess up my diet.

I learned that on their program you're supposed to eat within one hour of waking. I always forget to eat breakfast so that would be a big improvement for me.
I also liked the downloadable journal they have to keep track of your weight loss journey. Journaling is so helpful!

I learned that the Zone Protein increases the lifetime of protein in the digestive system so it can help release the hormones that tell the brain to stop eating.
