Publisher's Summary

As you spend your first few days at your cross-training gym, you may be very excited to find out more about the various exercises that are involved, weekly training plans, clothing, and equipment. A well-balanced diet plan can be overlooked at times, but it's a crucial component to providing you with the fuel to get the fitness, performance, and the physique of your dreams.
I've worked with hundreds of clients over the last couple of years who misinterpret the meaning of training hard as many of them used to think that bodybuilding or fitness is done only at the gym. But that is not true. There is a popular saying across the fitness industry that states 30 percent of the fitness you gain is from the gym and 70 percent from the kitchen. The exact percentage is likely to fluctuate based on the individual and their goals for training, but the premise is accurate. Most of your gains (approx. 2/3 to 3/4) will be made from nutrition alone. Yes, you heard it right!
While your personal trainer may have talked to you about Paleo diet, which is a very popular nutrition strategy, they may have omitted another useful dietary routine going by the name of the Zone diet. What is the Zone diet? This is a diet form that primarily consists of consuming foods with high protein and low carbohydrates on five equally balanced meals that span throughout the day.
This book will introduce you to the Zone diet, its benefits, and how to implement it into your life with 75 recipes and a two-week meal plan.
Here's a preview of what's inside:

Origins of zone diet
Basics of the zone diet and how it works
Benefits of the zone diet
What advantages does the Zone diet have over the Paleo diet?
The Zone diet "Do's & Don'ts"
How to apply the Zone Diet to your training plan
Zone foods
75 Zone recipes - breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and desserts
2-week meal plan
And so much more

Okay Book

Any additional comments?

This book is about average on what to expect in a diet book. The information presented in this book is pretty much basic knowledge. It does contain some great recipes that are easy to prepare. This would be a good book for people who are very strict when on a diet and who are interested in a high protein, low carb diet.

This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Great Start for Healthier Eating

I thought this book did a really good job providing a starting point for those looking to change their diets to something healthier. In the beginning, it gives a little background about where this and other diets originated and the main differences between them. The rest of the book gives ideas for meals and how to balance the right amounts of foods.
For some reason, I found this audiobook much more useful than a hardcopy cookbook. I think this is because I am only just starting to eat healthier and the list of recipes and meal ideas really got my brain moving about healthy eating. I started coming up with a lot more combinations and ideas for things to eat after listening.

Narrator was also very good. Had a very good tone and pace.

I would recommend this book for anyone interested in nutrition or eating healthier.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Not suitable as an audiobook.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The performer was clear and easy to listen to.

Any additional comments?

This is 90% list format. It does not make for good listening. I would be interested in getting a hard copy but it was a waste of an audible credit.
