The Secret Diet
Meg Ryan has very openly owned up that she’s not the kind who can stay without eating; she loves eating and she eats five times a day. So what is the mystery behind her glamour, her youthfulness, even at this age? Ryan follows the ‘zone diet’ devised by Barry Sears and has been on it for years. The zone diet is a high calorie low carbohydrate diet that recommends eating five times a day and distributes the consumption of calories instead of carbohydrates and proteins, in a specified ratio. The main motive of the zone diet is to bring satiety, by eating five times a day in a proportioned manner, so that it discourages over eating. The diet approves eating three meals and two snacks in a day and prefers proteins and carbohydrates with low glycemic index, along with 30%-40% of fat. The diet also recommends daily exercise, which is a must for Meg. The Zone diet also promises a number health benefits like: a reduction in chronic disease risk, increased longevity, enhanced immunity and obviously, permanent weight loss.
