Keeping Up With ProZone – February 2019

Carol’s Corner  Happy New Year everyone.  It’s scary to think that it’s already halfway through February, but we’ve been enjoying such a lovely summer the time has just gone.   We spent almost 6 weeks at our beach place, apart from the odd trip home to pack parcels and sort a few things, during which we’ve enjoyed lovely walks on the beach for an hour early every morning.  I take bags and pick up rubbish on the beach which is mostly relatively clean. Apart from bits of plastic, rope, dirty nappies, and lolly papers, we also found several pairs of perfectly

Featured Article – Three Hormones That Could Be Affecting Your Weight

Featured Article Three Hormones That Could Be Affecting Your Weight From Dr Sears Lab Many of the problems that prevent us from reaching our weight loss goals are due to hormonal imbalance. If you are careful about your food choices, exercise regularly and still aren’t seeing the scale budge, your hormones may be to blame. When trying to reach the Zone, you’ll often hear us talk about the importance of hormonal control.

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

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

Testimonial

Dear Carol Thanks so much for your help, after being diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes at week 28 of my pregnancy I was told that I might need to be prescribed  insulin to control my sugar levels for the last 12 weeks of my pregnancy and more than likely need inducing early under the care of the hospital doctors and not my lovely midwife that I trusted and built up a rapport with from the beginning. As I have always been healthy, slim and fit I do not fit the standard Gestational Diabetes mold this was a complete shock! Thanks to following your advice, I

The Right amount of Protein is Important

Zone nutrition is usually mislabeled as a “high protein” diet. It is in fact “protein adequate” in that we work out how much protein you need to eat each day to maintain your muscle mass.  Once you reach 30 you start to lose muscle and eating in the Zone protects your muscle mass so while you may lose weight you do not lose muscle. We had one client who went from a size 16 to a 10 but only lost one kilo on the scales.  Her body shape changed completely but she lost fat but not muscle. The other important factor

Diabetes

Last weekend (12 May) there was an interesting Insight programme on Chris Laidlaw’s show on National Radio about diabetes.  The terrifying truth is that the rate of increase in diabetes in this country is threatening to overwhelm our health system in the not too distant future.  Barry Sears has made the same observation in America where he says that diabetes is going to ultimately bankrupt the country. Listening to the Insight programme there is so much positive work going on to try and educate people but there was an interview with a 52 year old woman who has Type 2
