Why do we recommend the “Zone”and "Paleo" for a long term approach to your Diet?

It's what your Grandmother taught You!


 Dr. Christian is the ONLY  Physician in San Antonio who has beeb Certified by Dr. Sears to teach the Anti-Inflammatory Zone Nutrition Program and its principles.  For some of our Strength Training clients we have increased the Protein to a higher level to allow for gaining of muscle. See an example of our Modified Zone/Paleo Prescription for one of our High Intensity Low Velocity Strength Training and Nutrition Program clients. This prescription is based on Body Fat and Body Lean measurements made by our DXA Body Composition Scan.  Dr. Christian is also a member of the American Society of Nutrition (Only M.D. Physician in San Antonio, Most ASN members are Phd type research Doctors) and the International Society of Sports Nutrition.


It is a very reasonable starting point to make decisions about Macronutrition, meaning Protein, Carbohydrates and Fat sources in your diet. Similar in many ways to the Mediterranean Diet.   We have modified our Nutrition Prescriptions for many clients to include more Protein in the Zone diet for strength training and to preserve lean mass while losing fat.

It treats food as though it were a drug. It is a “Hormonally Correct Way to Approach Food.”

It manages the balance of important hormones for Glucose control and lowers elevated Insulin levels. This is  critical for Type II diabetics.

It is a perfect program for patients with Diabetes, Coronary Artery Disease and the Metabolic Syndrome.

It emphasizes the critical need for Omega 3 Fats (Fish Oil) to balance the good and bad Eicosanoids, important hormones which control many bodily functions. When these are out of balance you are at risk for many chronic diseases and accelerated aging.  Omega 3 fats are converted to Pro-Resolving Lipid Mediators which help to resolve inflammation.  Most of our chronic Diseases are related to unresolved Chronic Low Grade Inflammation.  See my Webinar on "Inflammation and Chronic Pain" 






It is somewhat calorie restricted which may slow the aging process.

It creates a hormonal environment for efficient fat burning which is critical for weight loss!!


It avoids the swings of appetite and mood associated with hypoglycemia.  It is the diet that we are genetically

designed to eat. Similar to the  “Hunter-Gatherer Diet.”


It is easy to teach and understand.


It is a great long term approach to Macronutrition.  You will be eating more and exercising less when

combined with our High Intensity Low Velocity Strength Training Program!!


It's what your Grandmother taught You!!
