About Dr. Barry Sears
Creator of The Zone, Dr. Barry Sears is a world-renowned, and widely published scientist and researcher who holds thirteen U.S. patents in drug delivery and hormonal control technology. He is the author of The Zone, Mastering the Zone, Zone-Perfect Meals in Minutes, Zone Food Blocks, A Week in the Zone, The Anti-Aging Zone, The Top 100 Zone Foods, The Soy Zone, and The OmegaRx Zone.
The Zone Diet is based on a Mediterranean diet which Dr. Sears rewrote to consist of 40% carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables, 30% low-fat protein, and 30% healthy monounsaturated fats at every meal. The Dr. Barry Sears Zone Diet™ is one of the most successful and widely accepted diet philosophies of modern times. Dedicated Zone Lifestyle followers include professional athletes, Hollywood’s elite, leaders of business and government, and even Pope John Paul II.
Dr. Sears’ extensive research convinced him of the miraculous health benefits derived from large doses of highly purified long-chain Omega-3 fatty acid fish oil and led to his transformation of the Zone concept into the OmegaZone™ Lifestyle that he believes "...is as close to a medical miracle as we will see in the 21st century."
