NutriGenie Omega Rx Zone Diet Software for Windows
NutriGenie's latest zone diet software is the perfect companion
to Barry Sears' Omega Rx Zone, as well as Mastering the Zone,
Zone Food Blocks, and the Top 100 Zone Foods.
In fact, NutriGenie Omega Rx Zone Diet Software significantly
enhances the Omega Rx Zone diet as prescribed by Sears. Please
read on and you will see how. The basic plan of Sears' Omega Rx
Zone can be summarized in the following steps:
- Step 1: Every meal starts with an adequate serving of low-fat
- Step 2: Balance the meal with desirable carbohydrates, mainly
fruits and vegetables.
- Step 3: Add monounsaturated fat while avoiding saturated and
- And the most important part of Sears' updated dietary program
(Omega Rx Zone as opposed to Zone) is the increased intake of
omega-3 fatty acids for modulation of eicosanoids.
NutriGenie Omega Rx Zone Diet automatically calculates the Protein,
Carbohydrate and Fat blocks for every food item, whether it is in
the provided NutriGenie database or in user's own food database,
facilitating the task of balancing a zone meal. This takes care
of steps 1 and 2. In fact, balancing a zone meal is made even easier
by NutriGenie's graphic indicators which display the current zone
status of your meal:
NutriGenie Omega Rx Zone Diet also allows user to accurately monitor
the saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat contents
of every meal. This takes care of step 3.
For the final step, NutriGenie Omega Rx Zone Diet package includes
an Omega-3 Counter Windows program that lists approximately 250
common foods with highest concentration of Omega-3. Andrew Stoll,
M.D., Director of the Psychopharmacology Research Lab at Boston's
McLean Hospital and Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard
Medical School, long ago found that Omega-3 acids, already known
for their importance in preventing heart disease and cancer, play
a crucial role in mental health regulating and enhancing mood,
sharpening memory, and even aiding concentration and learning. This
substance, so essential to our health is often depleted by our Western
diet and lifestyle. In addition to these potential benefits, Omega-3
fatty acids have been shown, in several studies, to help fight atherosclerosis
and lower blood cholesterol levels. Instead of having to take artificial
supplements, you can use NutriGenie Omega-3 Counter to identify
and acquire the richest natural sources of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Furthermore, since Glycemic Index (GI) is a key factor in
evaluating high-quality carbohydrates for the zone diet, NutriGenie
Omega Rx Zone Diet software provides the GI ratings (low, medium
or high) for over 2,500 commonly used food items in its database.
This is the most comprehensive glycemic index rating compilation
available in any software product. We aggregate GI measurements
from the most authoritative sources and normalize the ratings into
3 categories: low, medium and high. Users can assign and modify
the ratings for any foods in the NutriGenie database or in their
own database. With a single command, the user can see all foods
in the appropriate GI category for selection. Menu planning using
desirable GI foods has never been easier. NutriGenie Omega Rx Zone
Diet software is the only software that can analyze your diet and
tell you precisely its calorie percentage from low, medium or high
GI foods. This is the most meaningful way to assess the glycemic
index of one's nutrition.
Finally, NutriGenie Omega Rx Zone Diet goes beyond what Sears
describes in his books. A healthy diet, zone or any other
kind, must be varied. One shouldn't subsist on Zone bars, day in
and day out, no matter how zone-balanced they are. A healthy diet,
zone or any other kind, must provide adequate vitamins and minerals
required for proper functioning and development of human body.
NutriGenie Omega Rx Zone Diet provides crystal clear quality assessments
of total fat, vitamin and mineral contents of user's diet.
NutriGenie Omega Rx Zone Diet also provides star ratings for evaluating
overall diet quality. Each diet is given a rating from 1 to 5, with
1 being the lowest in quality. Our ratings take into account the
latest guidelines issued in September 2002 by the Institute of Medicine,
the medical division of the National Academies.
The latest guidelines establish for the first time a range of recommended
amounts (Dietary Reference Intakes or DRIs) for macronutrients
proteins, fats and carbohydrates and also include advice
on how much dietary fiber and how little cholesterol or saturated
fat people should strive for to maintain good health. Previous reports
from the National Research Council over the last 60 years have dealt
only with recommended levels (RDAs) of vitamins and minerals. See
