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

Keeping Up With ProZone – February 2021

Carol’s Corner Welcome to 2021! I hope that you have had a good break and you are feeling rested and fired-up ready to get into this year. Here’s hoping that 2021 is an easier year for everyone than 2020 was, even though things are not the same as they were pre-2020, and probably never will be, so we must adjust accordingly, and learn to live well in our new ‘normal’. The threat of COVID-19 still looms heavily, especially with recent new cases coming from MIQ (Managed Isolation and Quarantine), the place where COVID is supposed to be contained. The best

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

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

LSA – linseed, sesame, almonds

I often get asked about LSA.  What about LSA?   LSA is made from almonds which are healthy monounsaturated fat,  linseed  which are omega-3 polyunsaturated fat but 90% less effective than omega-3 in marine oils so have no benefit, and sesame which Dr Sears uses to potentiate his omega-3 fish oil. It’s a pity about the vegetable omega-3 in linseed, plus it is all ground up so it is much more readily oxidized.  This creates harmful fats. It is much better to use good natural fats in whole (raw) almonds, pistachios, peanuts, olive oil and avocado to name a few. We
