Dr. Barry Sears Dr. Sears Comments:

Any dietary program that you start and lose weight on must be continued for life to maintain the weight loss. From that perspective, any calorie-restricted diet will work. However, the health benefits come from the reduction of inflammation. In that regard, you need to follow an anti-inflammatory diet for a lifetime. The Zone Diet has been shown to be the most effective diet in reducing inflammation. Unfortunately, this article forgot to look at that parameter.
