The Mediterranean Zone diet
Although the creator of the Zone diet, Barry Sears , reiterated that it was certain types of refined carbohydrates and sweets (therefore bread and pasta, white rice and sugar) that made us gain weight and develop the worst diseases, a zone diet that exploited abundance of carbohydrates, vegetables, healthy vegetable oils and fish typical of the Italian diet had already been developed by Dr. Gigliola Braga , and was called the Italian Zone Diet.
Now Barry Sears himself kills two birds with one stone, that is, he combines the goodness of the Mediterranean diet with the concepts of the Zone diet, and is now publishing a new book, the Mediterranean Zone diet , published at the end of last year in America and now in Italy.
– vegetables: you need to eat many more, they are the key to the Mediterranean Zone diet.
– omega3 fatty acids : these too must be taken more frequently, especially thanks to fish.
– Omega 6 fatty acids: too many are eaten through nuts, peanuts, vegetable oils of seeds present in industrial preparations.
– carbohydrates with a high glycemic index: they must be abolished and replaced with raw cereals, whole grains, rice and wholemeal pasta.
All this always according to the canons of the zone diet: that is, balanced meals, with precise blocks of carbohydrates, proteins and fats to avoid the glycemic and insulin spike.
