Doctors often tell their patients to follow a strict medical diet to help treat existing conditions. Two well-known diets are the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) and the Joslin Diabetes Foundation diet.

Here we compare both of these medically validated dietary programs to The Zone Diet®.

Zone Diet vs. DASH vs. Joslin

Both The Zone Diet and the Joslin dietary recommendations have approximately the same levels of daily protein and fat intake as the DASH diet, but nearly 50% fewer carbohydrates.

The difference between The Zone Diet and the other dietary recommendations is the additional supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and polyphenols extracts to further reduce diet-induced inflammation and enhance mitochondrial biogenesis respectively.
