Diet as a Noun not a Verb

Share on :
By Scott Shimberg

We have usually eaten fairly healthy. We have in no way been fanatical, but we've been practical - no Cheetos or Oreos, always veggies with lunch and dinner, refrain from takeaway food etc. So based on our decent eating along with semi-regular exercise, our weight and physical shape has remained somewhat continuous. But now that we have attained the "other side of the hill," what was once continuous, is no more.

The Ah-Ha moment

We were on a vacation cruise and also been to a seminar (believe it or not, cruises have a lot more to give than endless buffets and gambling) on how to enhance your metabolism. We learned about the importance of the colon as well as your entire digestive system and also how many things we put into our bodies that harm us; it had been overwhelming! Our Ah-Ha moment arrived when they simply asked what does a baby do? They eat, and then they poop. We have clogged up our systems with what we have ingested, that foods are sticking in our bodies when they shouldn't rather than removing through efficiently.

We Don't Diet

Most people perceive the word diet as a verb. According to the definition is: (v.) To eat and drink according to a regulated system, especially so as to lose weight. The problem with this is that it is temporary. Once you complete the goal of losing weight, the diet ceases - and we all know what happens next: the weight comes back on. We prefer to see the word diet as a noun, again (n.) The usual food and drink of a person or animal.The seminar provided a great new way to eat that was easy to follow and could be our diet for the rest of our lives.

Who is Dr. Sears

Dr. Sears has become the expert on cellular inflammation, he thoroughly describes it in his book, "Enter the Zone: A Dietary Road Map." He writes, in great detail the harms of cellular inflammation and provides solutions on how to reverse it. To sum it up, cellular inflammation is what makes us gain weight, speed up the development of chronic ailment, and decrease our physical capabilities. If the levels of cellular irritation remain elevated, it could become a silent killer. There is no drug that may reverse cellular inflammation. If you want to retake control over life, your first step needs to be the decrease of cellular inflammation.

Why We Gain Weight

Increased cellular inflammation may change your fat cells into a "fat trap" particularly if you can be genetically predisposed. As soon as this happens, the dietary calories get trapped in your fat cells and can't be discharged to make the energy you need to survive and move around. As a result you are continuously hungry. Once you begin to reverse cellular inflammation, the "fat trap" is relaxed, and you prevent the hunger. If you are never hungry, then cutting back on calories is simple.

The Solution: Zone Eating

The Zone Diet is clinically proven to reverse cellular inflammation. The dietary program is conceptually simple. Simply divide your plate at every meal into three equal sections.

[]One-third of the plate will consist of a low-fat protein which is no larger than the palm of your hand. Then fill the other two-thirds of the plate with colorful carbohydrates (vegetables and fruits). Finally add a dash (that's a small amount) of fat which is low in omega-6 and saturated fats, for example olive oil. Simple in idea, but frequently difficult because you will have to prevent many of the "starchy carbs" that people love to eat (bread, pizza, pasta, potatoes, and rice). In addition, you need to sustain the suitable balance of protein, carbohydrate and fat at every meal to sustain the hormonal balance to reduce cellular inflammation.


We have been eating this way faithfully, for just about a year, combined with a work out. It took around 60 days to notice the difference, although we felt the improvement within a week. Our "other side of the hill" bodies have vanished and we get better due to it. Not quite functioning like a baby, yet much more regular and healthy.

Until next time
