Barry Sears wrote:
"The dietary technology required to reach the Zone is as precise
as any computer technology" (The Zone, p. 3) and
"What is a Zone-favorable diet? It's a diet in which the balance
of macronutrients--protein, carbohydrate, and fat--is tightly controlled:
every meal, every snack, every day." (The Zone, p. 38)
So you can employ the hit-or-miss approach to the Zone, or you can
stay consistently on target with the help of NutriGenie software.
