Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - BookSmack!
I lied—my one New Year's resolution is to try to enter The Zone and eat fewer but higher-quality calories in reasonable portions. I find that I feel, for lack of a better term, "clean" when I eat "lots of vegetables and fruit, plus a moderate amount of low-fat protein and a dash of monounsaturated fat," which is what this dietary approach entails. The I'm-hotter-than-Cloris-Leachman Lynn Sears takes over for husband Barry and in folksy, convincing writing provides plenty of simple meal ideas that don't all involve cottage cheese and grilled chicken. There's a Tuna Waldorf Salad with Yogurt, Blue Cheese, and Chive Dressing, Mex-Chicken Chili, Turkey Burgers, and Ostrich Meatloaf (ostrich—it's what's for dinner!). Recipes, all designed to keep insulin within the "not too high and not too low" Zone, seem great, though I won't be trying the Pork Sauerbraten with Sauerkraut and Roasted Brussels Sprouts. There's even a "Kid's Zone," which is important to me since I frequently seem to send my kids into hypoglycemic shock with huge portions of mac 'n' cheese and ice cream, tantamount to a kind of murder but lots of fun to observe. I want better for them, so I'll do it. Plus, I want to kill off any trace of man-killer visceral belly fat. Dudes, let's choose life, health, fitness, and freedom from pills and medicine with this. — Douglas Lord, "Books for Dudes," Booksmack! 1/6/11

For the above person who posted....definitely the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. True that they have achieved fame, and well deserved for the time they took studying the Zone and providing us with it. With that comes fame and money, yes but they also have changed many lives for the better and that satifaction, I am sure, is better than money. I hope I am not speaking for the Spears.

I am sure you are posting this because you feel isecure about the way you look and have no will to change. FAT BUT PROUD! Right??
