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 as our backyard and the Botanical Gardens as our front yard so we have places to walk. The gardens are especially beautiful as the magnolias, camellias and rhododendrons come in to bloom and you can see the tulips growing inches every day. It’s good for the soul.

I have only had to shop at the supermarket twice apart from quick shops mainly for milk. I cook meals that last for a couple of nights and we have been eating very good Zone balanced meals. Eating in the Zone helps control your hormones, so together with walking and some weight bearing exercise (you don’t need weights) and maybe meditation, it is possible to cope with the stress and control your weight.

The other thing we can all do to keep healthy is to have the vaccine. It may not stop you from getting COVID-19 but it should stop you getting very ill if you do get it. Look after each other and keep smiling.

If you want some more information about the Zone and how getting in the Zone could be of benefit to you, you can contact me via my Contact Form.


PureFit Bars

*Important Announcement*


The manufacturer of PureFit bars has gone out of business so PureFit have gone to another manufacturer. They have changed the formula of the new bars to higher protein and lower sugar which is a good thing on the one hand but, unfortunately, they are no longer a balanced 30-40-40 bar which has always been our point of difference and made it easy to stay in the Zone.

There are already several high protein, low sugar bars on the market here, mostly locally made and cheaper so we have reluctantly made the difficult decision to stop importing the PureFit bars.

With the difficulties around COVID-19 and the huge increase in freight costs and compliance costs it is no longer viable for me to import the bars. This is a devastating decision after being the New Zealand distributor for about the last 15 years, and especially seeing as we were just starting to get them into the supermarkets.

There are several high protein bars out there but most of them are not very nice and not balanced. I am looking for an alternative and will keep you posted. In the meantime, if you have a bar that you like and would like to know how to make it a balanced bar please send me a clear picture of the label and I will work out how to balance it.

When we started ProZone we taught good nutrition and how to achieve this by using “real” food from the supermarket. The bars became a side-line for us along with our protein powder, fish oil and protein crisps, all of which I will keep selling. I have very limited bars left and I will no longer fill bulk orders, but I still have the other products available.

Remember, that there is plenty of good food out there and it is about being organised. There are lots of ideas in our book including 30 ideas for one-block snacks. If you need help, please contact me.

You can purchase our ProZone Recipe and Zone Guidebook, here. Not only does it have great ideas for one-block snacks, it also includes over 100 recipes using New Zealand-based ingredients.

Fish Oil

I have fish oil in both capsule and liquid form in stock. The liquid fish oil is now in glass bottles, but is the same excellent product. It has a slight citrus flavour and one 5ml teaspoon a day is all you need. 

Keep all fish oil in the fridge once you have opened it.

Please note: Krill is no longer being manufactured and I no longer have any stock left.
