NutriGenie Zone Nutrition Professional for Windows

NutriGenie Zone Nutrition Professional is the ultimate companion to The Zone, A Dietary Road Map and Mastering the Zone by Barry Sears. The software analyzes your diet using macronutrient blocks as well as convenient household units. Every meal has a graphic Zone sign which obviates the need for tedious calculation to achieve desirable protein - carbohydrate ratio. A glance at the sign will tell you whether your meal is Zone-favorable.

In addition, the program provides a unique glycemic index (GI) indicator for over 500 common foods as well as Zone-favorable, co-factor and antioxidant food filters that let you quickly select appropriate foods. One single mouse click will show you all high, medium, or low GI foods in the database. You can assign or re-assign GI values to any foods including your own. No other nutrition software provides this functionality.

NutriGenie zone diet software is for the informed and sophisticated users. It calculates your macronutrient requirements based on the zone diet but also provides the U.S. Recommended Dietary Allowances for comparison. Users can set their own nutrient intake preferences and the program's superb graphic interface makes identifying an optimal diet a breeze.

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.
