Keeping Up With ProZone – Christmas 2018

        From all of us here at ProZone, we’d like to wish you, your family and your friends a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! It’s hard to believe that it’s “that” time of the year again. It’s been a year full of ups and downs for me, so I’m looking forward to a break,and a fresh start in the New Year. I never worry about my nutrition, even over the holidays, as I always eat in the Zone. However, I understand Christmas can make it difficult for some to stay in the Zone, so I’ve included some tips

Keeping Up With ProZone – August 2018

Carol’s Corner  Seeing this is ProZone’s 20 year anniversary, we are putting in some of our articles from past newsletters. As Rachel Hunter said in the infamous advertisement for hair products, “it won’t happen overnight, but it will happen”,  the same can be said for weight loss.  A lot of people are hung up on weight loss and weigh themselves religiously every morning, getting upset if they put on a few hundred grams and probably rewarding themselves by eating a bit more, as if they had lost a few hundred grams. We had a client who went from a size 16

Keeping Up With ProZone – July 2018

  Carol’s Corner  Tree Planting Recently our Rotary club joined with Wellington City Council and some locals to plant 320 trees on Mt Victoria. We were lucky with the weather on a lovely Sunday morning. Rotary has a project to plant trees all around the world – at least one for every member of Rotary (over 1.3 million members). It was a very rewarding exercise, and afterwards we had a lovely shared barbecue cooked by the local neighbours. It was very easy to “Zone” the lunch, with lovely beef steak and magnificent salads – I just avoided the bread and potatoes.

Keeping Up With ProZone – June 2018

Sorry it has been a while since you heard from me. It’s been a busy time since the end of April, starting off with our wedding, followed two days later by the terrible news that my sister is ill with a brain tumour. I had a visit to Australia to visit her which was lovely. She’s quite well at the moment, but the outlook is grim and she has just started 6-weeks’ of rigorous treatment. It just shows how vulnerable we all are and how we should look after ourselves, look after each other, don’t take life for granted, and enjoy

The Benefits of Water

The Benefits of Water Most of us think we have a healthy lifestyle. We eat well and exercise regularly. However, many of us aren’t drinking enough water to supplement this healthy life, and in fact aren’t even aware how much water we should have every day! Our bodies need water to achieve optimum health, as it makes up about 60% of your body weight. For a 60kg person, that’s 36kg! So, how much water does the average person need? The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake for men is roughly about 13 cups (3 liters) a day, and for women

Christmas can make it hard to stay in the Zone, so we’ve included some tips below to help you survive the holidays.

Sugar Tax

Could a Tax on Sugar Save Lives? Last month the UK introduced a sugar tax on soft drinks to come into effect in 2018. Our government has stood by its stance not to introduce the tax, despite a compelling open letter signed by 74 professors from universities around NZ urging NZ to follow the UK’s lead. There is suggestions the government should listen to the experts and start treating sugar-related diseases like smoking-related cancers. Osborne, a UK politician said: “I’m not prepared to look back at my time here in this Parliament doing this job and say to my children’s generation, ‘I’m

Obesity Epidemic

There was an excellent article in the DomPost on Monday (April 6) outlining how obesity is now a bigger problem than hunger in the world.  This is a terrifying scenario and has serious consequences for the global economy. According to the Global Burden of Disease Study published in the Lancet nearly 30 percent of the world’s population is overweight or obese.  That is nearly two and a half times more than the number of people who are undernourished.  It is estimated that if the current trend continues, that almost half of the world’s population will be overweight by 2030. The burden on the

Fish Oil debate

Following the release last week of a study carried out by the University of Auckland Liggins Institute that found many fish oils on the market contain a third less omega-3 fatty acids than claimed on the label, I want to reassure my customers that the See Yourself Well (SYW) Omega-3 sold by ProZone is certified to the highest standards for fish oil quality in the world, the International Fish Oil Standard (IFOS) 5 star rating.  This is the highest quality IFOS rating whose certification guarantees the safety of SYW fish oil and assures you that you cannot get a higher

BlockBuilder

I recently heard from a client who doesn’t live in Wellington and I hadn’t spoken to for several years.  She is a diabetic and has struggled to control it.  She finally decided to buy a BlockBuilder and this is her response: “Hello Carol, parcel arrived this morning…have had a good look at the Block Builder..,…and it seems to be completely idiot proof!!! I kick started myself Zoning 100% this Monday…yes, only on Day 3 as I write….blood sugars in normal range ALL day. Insulin doses lessened remarkably, losing 1kg a day so far, that can slow down, as I don’t

Easter Hours

I am taking advantage of the few days between Easter & Anzac weekends to have a break. I will be away from Friday 18th and back on Monday 28 April. Please order any supplies you need as soon as possible to make sure they don’t get held up over the break. Enjoy the holiday and when you’ve eaten too many Easter eggs, remember “you are only one meal away from the Zone”.  On the other hand you can always flag the Easter eggs and have a good Zone balanced snack instead.

Carbohydrate Addiction

The latest North & South (September 2013) has an excellent article about carbohydrates titled “Carbohydrate Addiction is Real – and it’s killing us”.  It states that “the number of obese people in the world is now greater than the number who are starving” which is something I wrote about in an earlier blog.  Along with the obesity is the huge increase in people suffering diabetes.  In China there are 90 million people with the disease and in India 908,000 people died from related causes in 2011. In New Zealand the statistics are just as frightening with the ever growing costs of
