Guidelines

Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day

 Water helps keep the metabolism going which in turn burns body fat. Water detoxifies and helps rid the body of waste. Water aids in the digestion.  

Be sure to eat breakfast within one hour of waking up.

Eating within one hour of waking up is like putting wood into a fire. It ignites the metabolism and starts to burn stored body fat. 

Be sure never to go beyond 4 or 5 hours without eating a meal or snack.

This will help keep your blood sugars stabilized which will give you increased energy levels, better sleeping patterns and controlled carbohydrate cravings.  

Be sure to eat one snack 1 hour before going to sleep.

 Even while you’re sleeping your body isn’t, your body is actually in repair mode so you will still burn up stored body fat. You can consider it as a hormonal touch up.  

What is 5Meals Diet?

5Meals diet is based on the principals of the Zone 40/30/30 diet that was designed to reduce so-called dietary inflammation. The development of many conditions and diseases involves inflammation. 


   Why is it called the Zone diet?

Keeping insulin levels within the therapeutic zone means staying in "The Zone."  Diet foods need to be taken in the right proportions to help to control insulin production. 

 


Limit or delete diet soda, regular soda, fruit juices or coffee.

 Caffeine and sugars will raise your insulin levels which will send your blood sugar levels crashing, the immediate affects of this is carbohydrate cravings. (Your actually faking your body out) Caffeine also dehydrates the body. Limit coffee or diet soda to one a day if you must.  Consider drinking seltzer instead of soda.
