Get In The Zone
There are two main eating systems that permeate the Crossfit community, The Zone Diet and The Paleo Diet. Whether it’s because of a commitment to crossfit, New Years’ Resolution, or whatever, the urge to diet healthily is something that never goes out of style. In that sense, that desire to diet can be very comforting, even cathartic when properly managed. That consistent desire to cleanse and better yourself—body, mind and soul—fits right in with the crossfit philosophy and also says something about you as a person.
What is the Zone Diet?
For the kind of diet to help you, your mind, as well as your body, ensuring that you get and and stay in the zone, look no further than the Zone Diet program. This program is scientifically-formulated to help individuals take care of themselves mentally and physically. It takes its inspiration from various diets developed by Harvard Medical School which are used to help patients deal with inflammation. In addition to the prestige that comes from being inspired by work at Harvard Medical School, “the Zone” can help with everything from mental acuity to the effects of aging. In addition, unlike flash in the pan fad diets, this approach is built on the idea on real, long-term effort and effects experienced over time.
So, how can you get and stay in the zone with this particular diet? “Balance” is a big part of feeling in the zone in any endeavor you might wish to undertake, and it’s precisely that sense of balance which the Zone Diet emphasizes and attempts to emulate. Rather than taking drastic dieting steps which, as stated, may be more trending that substantial, the Zone Diet works by preaching “balance” and encouraging you to eat balanced meals, complete with healthy proportions. The Zone Diet emphasizes the role of fruits and veggies while downplaying products made of starch which might prove potentially problematic. While this seem like a small change, it is born from the anti-inflammatory roots of this diet, and thus can have a real impact on your overall health.
How is the Zone Different?
Further separating the Zone Diet from the morass of fad diets is the fact that it’s had enough staying power to last for the past few decades, having been developed by Dr. Barry Sears 30 years ago. What’s more, additional anti-inflammatory treatments can potentially help with the beneficial, anti-inflammation elements of the Zone Diet. As always, check with your doctor before beginning any long-term diet or taking any pills or medicines which might affect your health. Omega 3 supplements are particularly potent and popular in this regard, with some of the best options for this diet being OmegaRx® and MaquiRx®, which contains maqui.
Is the Zone the Onle Way to Eat Healthy?
Healthy eating and dieting is as much dependent upon your state of mind as the status of your diet program. Whether you choose to stay in balance, “go Green,” “get in the Zone” or embrace any other kind of dieting philosophy, your outlook and attitude can have a profound impact not just on the results, but your overall experience. Remember, dieting done right should leave you feeling refreshed and reinvigorated, and always leave you in a better place than where you were before.
As such, “getting in the Zone” with the Zone Diet means a year-round promise to yourself to grow healthier mentally and physically by the day, an ongoing catharsis that has a true and profound impact on your overall well-being.
