Weight Loss Tips from Zone Diet Creator Dr Barry Sears From His New Book Toxic Fat

On today’s show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy had on Dr Barry Sears, creator of the Zone Diet. Dr Sears is the leading authority on the dietary control of hormonal response. His theory is that you have to keep your hormones in a zone that is not too high or too low. He believes that the food you eat has the biggest impact on your hormone levels and therefore your weight and your health. He says when your hormones are out of whack you become sicker, fatter and dumber. His solution is to get rid of all the vegetable oil in your pantry, eat less processed foods, eat less foods with Omega 6 fatty acids, eat more foods with Omega 3 fatty acids, eat smaller portions, eat more vegetables and have some cod liver oil everyday. He says your Grandmother was right – as you will notice that is the same advice she was giving you. He also gave a great tip on how to check out your fish oil supplement to make sure it is good. Here is Dr Barry Sear’s Fish Oil test – take a handful of fish oil supplements cut them open and dump the oil in a shot glass – then put the shot glass in the freezer. After a few hours check on the oil – if you can put a toothpick through the oil and it didn’t freeze then it is probably okay – if the oil is solid then it probably is not pure fish oil and you should look for another brand.   Dr Sears talked about the new Anti-Inflammatory Diet and what he calls silent inflammation. He also has a new book out titled Toxic Fat. Please go to his websites www.drsears.com and www.zonediet.com
