Welcome to Zone
About Zone Nutrition:
in teaching the principles of the Zone and Paleo diets; balanced, healthy,
low glycemic (blood sugar) load eating plans developed by looking at our
past, to the diets and lifestyles that best suit out genetic heritage. The
results of eating this way are often extraordinary, many diseases we see as a
normal part of today’s world reverse, including high blood pressure, obesity,
auto-immune disease, gut issues like IBS, bloating and GERD.
feed a lion grains, nor would you feed a rabbit meat
Have you ever
wondered if we as humans are eating the food today that we are best suited to
genetically? Put it this way – if you were a zoo keeper and had a bunch of
wild humans – what is food they would thrive on? I mean thrive – not just
Today we humans
eat foods that were foreign to us 10,000 years ago (and in many cases just
200 years ago) in a balance that is incorrect for our metabolism.
Consequently our health is suffering; we lack energy, we can't lose weight,
we suffer from numerous health problems. We are poor specimens compared to
our hunter / gatherer ancestors.
When you really
think about it – How well are you?
Do you take
regular pain relief for headaches, joint or other aches and pains?
overweight, and find it difficult to keep weight off?
Do you take
ant-acids for indigestion, or suffer bloating, IBS or constipation?
Do you have
sugar or other cravings, and find it hard to judge your appetite?
Are you on
medications for cholesterol and high blood pressure?
Women - do you
have hormonal issues like PCOS, menstrual pain or PMS?
diabetic or pre-diabetic?
The Zone diet
is eating real food - protein, carbohydrates and fat in a balance and quality
that gives us back our health, energy and helps us burn fat. Paleo nutrition
focuses of food quality - eating those foods that best suit us genetically.
I am stunned by
the fast improvement in many people's niggling health problems, when they
switch to this way of eating.
Here is a
selection of health benefits that are typically reported by our clients:
Increased energy - especially during the
afternoon, feel more alert
Fat loss without hunger or cravings (no
more sugar cravings!)
Control of reactive hypoglycemia (low
An increase in mental focus, no more
Quicker recovery after exercise, improved
Decrease in pain and inflammation e.g.
with arthritis, headaches
Decrease or elimination of Premenstrual
Syndrome and Menstrual Pain
A decrease in symptoms of depression and
Reduced and improved cholesterol
Improved digestion - reduction in IBS,
constipation, indigestion and other gut issues
Improved blood sugar in diabetes
Skin problems like eczema and psoriasis
The Paleo diet in particular is very
successful in reducing auto-immune conditions
We have found
that many people, after switching from a conventional diet to the Zone and /
or Paleo Diet experience an improvement of many of these problems in just a

Research Supporting the Zone diet :
Zone Diet Wins
in Varsity Study.
carried out a year long study comparing
three diets; Atkins, Zone and the Conventional high carbohydrate diet. After
12 months those following the Zone Diet had maintained a greater weight loss
than those on the other two diets. The study also concluded that the Zone
diet “may be the best overall approach to reducing the risk of cardiovascular
disease and Type 2 diabetes”. Those on the Zone diet also seemed to enjoy it
It’s great to
see local research again confirming the effectiveness of the Zone diet.

Results people achieve when
they change their diet to Zone / Paleo
“My hubby has lost a whopping 7kgs in a
month! The Paleo way of eating totally agreed with him…
I don’t get any more issues with
bloating or wind in my stomach. I have dropped weight and lost centimetres
all over. I don’t have as many headaches.
For the first time in years I did not
have period pain or tender breasts at that time of the month.
Mental focus is a lot better, Not so
much brain fog. My sleeping pattern has improved. I used to wake and not get
back to sleep, which is not happening now.”
Tracy, Auckland, NZ
“I have found my recovery rate after
exercise much faster. My recovery from a cold was far quicker than usual. My
mental focus is much clearer and I am able to do paperwork in the evening. I
have lost weight easily.”
Ariana, Auckland, NZ
“…my psoriasis cleared up, and
I find I don’t crave bread, biscuits
and other processed food, I’m happy to eat a meat, veggie and fruit diet.”
“I have an Auto-immune disease not
specifically diagnosed, however I’m HLA-B27 positive and I get iritis in
alternative eyes when I’m stressed, my back constantly gave me pain causing
me to chew through pain killers….I started on a starch free Paleo diet …
wow would you know it……… my pain reduced within 3 days.”
“This has been a life changing event…
weight has dropped from 83 to 77kg in 6 weeks. I got on the scales this
morning and could hardly believe it. I had been adjusting my belts in but had
no idea it was so much. I have continued to experience more energy and
overall improvement in health. My hip has improved a lot so long as I stay
off wheat products. Digestion wise, everything is running like clockwork now.”
Peter, Hamilton, NZ
