The OmegaZone™ Dietary Program is based upon consistent insulin control coupled with the supplementation of high-dose fish oil in order to modulate the synthesis of arachidonic acid (3).


Insulin control is achieved by balancing protein and carbohydrate at each meal (1-3, 9). The insulin-control component of the OmegaZone™ Dietary Program can be described as a moderate-carbohydrate, moderate-protein, and moderate-fat dietary program. The maximum amount of low-fat protein at any one meal should be no bigger than the size and thickness of the palm of the hand (this is approximately 3 oz. for females and 4 oz. for males). The majority of carbohydrates should come from vegetables and fruits, with starches (such as bread, potatoes, rice, and pasta) used sparingly as condiments. Finally, most of the fat should consist of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. Unlike high-protein diets (that induce ketosis) or high-carbohydrate diets (that elevate insulin levels), the insulin control component of the OmegaZone™ Dietary Program is based on balance and moderation at each meal.


The other component of the OmegaZone™ Dietary Program is supplementation with high-dose fish oil. This is only possible with the advent of pharmaceutical-grade fish oil that for the first time allows the use of high-dose without severe gastric distress.
