Zone Diet Calculators
"The Zone" a dietary program developed to
maintain insulin in a relatively tight zone - not too high, not
too low. This is achieved by controlling the ratio of protein to
carbohydrate at every meal by the use of food blocks. By maintaining
insulin levels, blood sugar levels are controlled, glycosylated
hemoglobin is reduced, triglyceride levels decrease, and HDL cholesterol
levels increase. You can enter your daily caloric needs below and
the specific Zone breakdown will display.
Note: This calculator is geared towards a high protein diet,
which may not be appropriate for those with liver or kidney problems.
Many traditional diets increase carbohydrates to 55% and lower protein
