It All Makes Sense Now!,
This review is from: A Week in the Zone (Mass Market Paperback)
I have wanted to be in "The Zone" for a long time and already own Mastering the Zone (very confusing) and the Daoust's 40-30-30 book. I was still unsure and not 100% clear on how exactly it worked. This book makes it all so very simple! It has a shopping list, which is a huge help, and it's small enough to fit in your purse/bag. It also dispels the myths of high protein diets, and why they just aren't healthy for you. I would highly recommend it! This book ties up all the loose ends!

There are no 'myths' about high protein diets being unhealthy. They are. The problem is that your overtaxed kidneys don't show problems, such as stones, until much later. If you don't have a history of kidney disease in your family, it's probably no problem at all, even in higher doses but it would be naive to think that protein can be consumed at will, with no ill affects. I think that high anything (macro) is a potential problem. Now having said that, I don't think this book is the case. It seems well-balanced in nutrients to avoid problems. I plan to do it myself. I already have the Daoust book and it just seems sensible. Sears is a little too low carb for my workout ethic.
