Barry Sears got a lot of attention--and royalties--with his diet books The Zone and Mastering the Zone. Sears believes that the food you eat is one of the most powerful drugs you will ever encounter, and a lot of people get fat and sick using food in misguided ways. Sears believes that using it the right way can lead to increased physical stamina, sharpened mental focus, and a reduced likelihood of developing chronic diseases--and you'll probably shed unwanted pounds along the way. Sears calls for a diet based on "hormonal thinking," not the usual calorie counting and fat measuring. Some of the rules of the diet are eating small meals throughout the day, having some protein at every meal, always eating the necessary amount of fruits and vegetables, and taking cod-liver oil. To make all of this as painless as possible, Sears has created 150 "Zone"-perfect meals that are easy to prepare and require little planning.

There are enough recipes in this book that I could always find something that worked for me. I tended towards the simpler "snack" recipes, partly because some of the other ones did take more time to prepare.
I've also got a large family (at the time I had 4 children) so the recipes had to be increased a good bit for my family. Which wasn't a huge problem, but some of the meals were just too expensive to make for so many.
There are some great egg recipes in there, and very easy to fix snacks, and it's all thought out and balanced, which, of course, is a definite plus for staying in the Zone.
The recipes were very easy to follow and understand, even for a novice cook such as myself. I would recommend this book for anyone following this diet, and even for those who aren't, simply because it IS a sensible way to eat, and the recipes are easy and varied.
Update: I attached a photo of my typical breakfast. I am 75 now. Totally drug free, supplements free. My food is my medicine. Thanks to Dr. Sears. He is the true scientist. Your doctors are quacks.
As for the actual eating plan, the increase in energy is unbelieveable. I have no more late night cravings for sugary junk food which were extremely strong. I felt like a heroin addict searching for a fix except I was headed for Braums Ice cream store instead of downtown Plano. Those are gone and I can't believe it. I do thank the doc for that, but quit throwing recipe books together and sticking a new name on them unless the money goes to a really worthy cause.
