For years experts have been telling Americans what to eat and what not to eat. Fat, they told us, was the enemy. Then it was salt, then sugar, then cholesterol... and on it goes.

Americans listened and they lost -- but not their excess fat. What they lost was their health and waistlines. Americans are the fattest people on earth... and why? Mainly because of the food they eat.

In this scientific and revolutionary book, based on Nobel Prize-winning research, medical visionary and former Massachusetts Institute of Technology researcher Dr. Barry Sears makes peak physical and mental performance, as well as permanent fat loss, simple for you to understand and achieve.

With lists of good and bad carbohydrates, easy-to-follow food blocks and delicious recipes, The Zone provides all you need to begin your journey toward permanent fat loss, great health and all-round peak performance. In balance, your body will not only burn fat, but you'll fight heart disease, diabetes, PMS, chronic fatigue, depression and cancer, as well as alleviate the painful symptoms of diseases such as multiple sclerosis and HIV.

This Zone state of exceptional health is well-known to champion athletes. Your own journey toward it can begin with your next meal. You will no longer think of food as merely an item of pleasure or a means to appease hunger. Food is your medicine and your ticket to that state of ultimate body balance, strength and great health: the Zone.

Quotes & Awards

  • “People who have never heard of the book are adopting its principles and saying they feel quicker, trimmer, and generally better with fewer carbohydrates.”

    New York Times

  • “Sears’ advice flies in the face of conventional wisdom, but recent studies support his radical theories, and his credentials are solid.”


  • Enter the Zone will surely draw interest—and controversy—among elite and recreational athletes...Enter the Zone forces you to question basic beliefs you have about the foods you eat and their effects on health and performance.” 

    Muscle & Fitness

  • “I’ve never had the progress with my clients that I’ve had since they've started doing the Zone. They’re less hungry, less fatigued, and more productive. I’ve seen it work.”  

    Teresa Olson, celebrity trainer

  • “Based on Nobel Prize–winning research, the message is that being fit and feeling good are goals we can reach by eating the right combinations of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Though it’s hard to think that noodles and bread can make anyone sick or miserable, the author makes a good case that eating too many carbohydrates can mess up the healthy hormone patterns that affect virtually every major bodily function...He explains some pretty complex metabolic relationships in a way that sounds easy to apply to one’s life. An accessible program with powerful, lifesaving information.”

    " This is a good introductory primer to going on the Zone Diet. While I do not use most of the recipes in this publication, the basic information revolving around "Zone" principals are laid out very clearly and easily. It served as a good precursor to reading the more scientific Enter the Zone. "
