David Zadick, 55, was at an Oscars after-party with some friends in Hollywood when he noticed people crowding around a sponsorship booth for VitaStik, a Beverly Hills company that sells vitamin and essential oil diffuser sticks. A self-described wellness buff who works in solar energy, Zadick was intrigued.

One way or another, you’ve probably heard of the Zone Diet.Maybe it was through one of its celebrity followers; Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, and Demi Moore have all been rumored to be fans. Maybe you overheard people talking about it at your local CrossFit box; the CrossFit Journal once wrote that the Zone Diet “closely models optimal nutrition."Either way, the Zone Diet was created by Barry Sears, Ph.D, formerly a research scientist at the Boston University School of Medicine and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, to help people lose weight and lower their risk of chronic disease by reducing diet-induced inflammation.According to Sears, “the zone” is a physiological state in which your body is primed to control inflammation.
