If you’ve ever been on one of our Zone Cruises you have likely encountered Theodora and John D.  This month marks their 20th year of being in the Zone. See what started them on their journey to the Zone and why they’ve never looked back!

When Did You Start the Zone? 

October 1998

How Did You Hear About the Zone? 

I saw Dr. Barry Sears on a TV Program. At that time both John and I were gaining weight. Diabetes runs high in my family and my grandmother and mother died of it and my brother has been living with it the past 15 years and not doing well. I didn’t want to get it and the Zone looked to be the answer. After the show, I went and bought the book The Zone and never looked back. We have been following the Zone for 20 years and continue to keep learning on every Zone Cruise.


What benefits have you seen being in the Zone?

Within the first 2 weeks we both noticed we had way more energy and weren’t tired. We also lost some weight. Overall, being in the Zone I lost 30 lbs and John lost 50 lbs and we both have never gain it back.

Was it hard to get started on the Zone or have there been hurdles to overcome since using it?

No, it was not hard at all. We use the hand, eye method and then we count the time to see how long we stay full and it is very easy and it works for us.

What products are you using currently and for how long? Have you noticed any differences?

We use the Fish oil, Sea health plus, MaquiRx, ZoneRx Bars and Zone Pasta. We have used the fish oil and Sea Health since they first came and added the MaquiRx, ZoneRx Bar and Pasta once they came to market. We would never go without them as they really make us feel well.

Are you on any medications? Have you been able to change the amount or frequency with which you take them following the Zone?

No, we are both in our 70’s and no medications and our AA/EPA ratios are perfect.

Is there anything else you want to share?

We just want to thank Barry for all he has done and for how caring of a person he is who always has time for us. We also want to say thank you to all the staff of the Zone whom you can always reach and makes time for you.
