The Buffer Zone Diet by Fred Cuellar – Review



When you¹re drowning, the last thing you do before you go unconscious is take a breath. The carbon dioxide rises so much in your blood it overpowers the last few molecules of oxygen in your body. You reach your breaking point, then you inhale.

Author Fred Cuellar inhaled food his whole life until he reached his breaking point in his battle with weight loss. Right at the moment he was ready to give up, he had a few last thoughts:

  • What if there were things he believed that weren¹t true?
  • What if calories in and calories out had exceptions?
  • What if we don¹t all metabolize food the same?
  • Why can¹t we successfully lose weight and keep it off?

Cuellar made it his mission to answer these questions ­ his life depended on it. In his quest to break the weight loss code, he discovered the Buffer Zone ­ that space between meals that is as important as the meals themselves. This is where he found his truth. In The Buffer Zone Diet readers will discover:

  • The Top Ten Lies we¹ve been told about our diet
  • Tips for distinguishing between emotional hunger and physical hunger
  • How to create nutrient-dense meals to keep physical hunger at bay
  • Science between weight loss and weight gain
  • Five distinct blueprints for designing the new and healthiest you
  • Strategies for breaking through weight loss plateaus
  • The Four Laws of Weight Management
  • And most importantly, the formula that regulates weight for the human body!

My Review – 

The premise of the book is, “It is not what you eat, it’s when you eat it” and allows for maximum health in the easiest possible way. I have almost finished reading this book and Mr. Cuellar’s theory makes sense – plain and simple. I am anxious to try out the method of eating that is outlined in the book and I’ve been holding off on my review until then. Then, I thought, why not post the book so others could try the methods out at the same time. I look forward to coming back and writing more as time goes on. The book is very informative and just made sense to me; like missing pieces to a puzzle. It is a lifestyle and nothing like all of the fad diets and crazy cleanses that are currently being marketed.

The author describes when to eat and how the size of the meals affects our body. One of the methods is 2 small meals a day and one large, with the large meal optimally being the lunch time meal. I have been reading sections of the book to my husband as we are both going to try eating this way. I am not a big eater and rarely eat more than two meals a day so it will be a little bit of an adjustment. What will make it easier is having the book explain to me why it is necessary to eat three meals and the two smaller with one larger meal fits into my lifestyle easily.

I hope you’ll pick up the book and begin your own journey.
