Keeping Up With ProZone – September 2021

Carol’s Corner   It’s been a pretty stressful last few weeks with the arrival of the Delta variant of COVID-19 in New Zealand and subsequently being placed back under alert levels 3 and 4. This lockdown seems to have been more difficult for many people, possibly because we’ve had a very large outbreak affecting mainly younger people. Last year we did our lockdown at our home at Himatangi Beach. Unfortunately, with the sudden and short notice of this lockdown we got stuck in our apartment in Wellington. Fortunately, we are in the middle of town so we have the waterfront

Keeping Up With ProZone – June 2021

Carol’s Corner The Zone vs. Alternative Diets   There is a lot of interest in alternative diets such as paleo & keto (which used to be called the Atkins diet). The other one that many people are intrigued by is intermittent fasting, either the 5/2 diet or variations on that such as the one below that Kevin tried. Kevin and I first started eating in the Zone about 24 years ago. The science behind eating this way, as developed by Dr. Barry Sears, made a lot of sense to us and we both ended up with very positive benefits. Kevin

Carol’s Corner Time’s Flying – Regain Control Where You Can   Here we are 12-months’ since COVID-19 came at the beginning of Autumn, and what a roller coaster those 12-months’ have been with the ever changing Level changes, research revealing more about the virus, and the very fast (in terms of scientific discoveries) vaccine development and distribution. In the past year we have also had earthquakes across New Zealand, as well as tsunami warnings, so life is definitely still strange for all of us. It all contributes to making people feel stressed, uneasy, and not in control. But, one thing

Keeping Up With ProZone – Christmas 2019

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! This year has been incredibly busy, both professionally and personally, and I am sorry to have not kept in touch more regularly. Hopefully, I can manage to do so more in the New Year. Christmas is a time where nutrition plans, diets, whatever you like to call them, tend to go out the window, because it’s just “easier” to eat whatever is on your plate, and not upset the hosts by refusing! But, it is important

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

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 – November 2018

Carol’s Corner  Firstly, my apologies for being out of touch for so long.  My sister, Marion, died from an aggressive brain tumour after only 4 months.  I spent a considerable amount of that time with her in Australia where she had lived for 40 years.  She was my only sibling and we had worked together at Wellington hospital in the 1970’s, so it has been a very difficult time.  I was with her at the end which was relatively quick and peaceful, and she never suffered any pain.   Happy Anniversary to ProZone It is 20 years this month that

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

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.

ProZone Protein Powder & Alternatives

Protein Powder There are all sorts of protein powders available out there.  At ProZone we pride ourselves on only selling top quality products. ProZone Protein powder now sports our lovely new branding thanks to the talented team at Creative Mouse Design.  ProZone Protein powder is purely casein based, lightly vanilla flavoured and slightly sweetened with stevia.  Calcium caseinate is digested more slowly than whey protein which makes it perfect for the Zone. It is ideal for use in smoothies, shakes and porridge and I add a scoop to the mixture when I make my yogurt which gives it a nice vanilla flavour.  $75

Handy Hint: Water Drops

Water Drops I always start my day off every morning with a lemon squeezed in hot water. We recommend that our clients drink plenty of water but some people don’t like drinking plain water. If you want to add a bit of flavour to your water and don’t have any lemons available, you can buy water drops in various flavours including lemon lime and strawberry.  These are slightly sweetened with stevia and you only need a few drops in a glass to make it taste good.  You could also put it in hot water instead of tea for a change. They

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

“Healthy” Snack Bars

Consumer has tested and commented on 35 snack bars sold in New Zealand.  it quite rightly says that most are high in sugar and saturated fats and are unhealthy. Consumer used the new health star rating system which has been introduced by the government.  It is a label on the front of the pack which gives consumers an “at a glance” guide to the nutrition value of food with five stars being the healthiest and one star being the most unhealthy.  Nine of the 35 bars received 3 stars or more with only four bars gaining four stars or more.

Holiday Travel Tips

Zone bars are very handy to have on hand when travelling by car, bus, boat, plane or train. For bush walking or on other walks they are small and light to carry, provide good nutrition and help keep up energy levels, the only extra you need carry is water. Several years ago we easily did the Tongariro Crossing in 5 hours on just 1½ bars each for breakfast before setting out and 1 bar each for lunch on the walk. I also find it handy to keep one in my handbag for when I get peckish or everyone else is

“Healthy Drinks”

There was an article in the DomPost on Saturday about so-called healthy drinks.  It opens with “Fruit juices and smoothies represent a new risk to our health because of the amount of sugar the apparently healthy drinks contain”. While there is very little dispute over the amount of sugar and dangers in soft drinks it is enlightening that so called “healthy drinks” are finally being recognized for what they are.  A glass of freshly squeezed orange juice may contain up to 6 oranges or 12 blocks of carbohydrate.  I have had people come to see me who say “I have
