Zone PastaRx is…
Zone Pasta is part of a newly patented food technology that changes the dynamics of the body’s protein absorption. It has been shown in clinical trials to satisfy hunger for hours and help control blood sugar.
PastaRx is a Better Choice Because…
Zone Pasta is not only a totally sustainable source of protein for use in Zone meals, but it also allows better control of the hormones in the gut, brain, and the blood. In addition, Zone Pasta has been shown clinically to reduce insulin resistance, while simultaneously increasing muscle mass formation.
Why Zone PastaRx?
Zone PastaRx provides the key to not only weight loss, but also for long-term weight control. Consider our patented Zone PastaRx to be the foundation of a Zone meal that shuts down hunger and fatigue for 5 hours. If you are never hungry and never tired, then losing excess body fat and keeping it off is simple. In fact, the more meals you eat using Zone PastaRx (see www.zonediet.com/zonepastarecipes ), the more excess body fat you lose. And the more excess body fat you lose, the healthier you become. It’s as simple as that.
Unlike traditional pasta that is often high in carbohydrates and low in protein, Zone PastaRx contains only 28grams of carbohydrates while providing 20grams of protein per serving.
Why is it worth the value to spend more on PastaRx than traditional pasta?
When you purchase PastaRx, you are paying for protein and greatly improved appetite suppression, not carbohydrates. If you compare the price of PastaRx to any food product with an equivalent amount of protein, you will find PastaRx to be your least expensive choice. Relative to its impact on appetite suppression, there is nothing comparable. That’s why it is patented.
How does the taste of PastaRx differ from traditional pasta?
PastaRx was developed with aid of top chefs in Italy. In their opinion, they cannot tell the difference between PastaRx and traditional Italian pasta other than the far greater appetite suppression found with PastaRx.
How do the ingredients of PastaRx differ from traditional pasta?
Zone Pasta is rich in sustainable protein sources that permit greater crosslinking upon cooking to change the absorption rate of the protein thus providing greater appetite suppression.
Why does Zone PastaRx take longer to cook than traditional pasta?
Zone Pasta simply looks and tastes like regular pasta, yet provides a completely different hormonal response including greater appetite suppression. The longer the Zone Pasta is cooked, the greater the crosslinking within the pasta that increases appetite suppression.
Why has PastaRx cooking time increased?
The increased cooking time for PastaRx from 8 minutes to 16 minutes for Orzo increases the crosslinking within the PastaRx that provides for greater appetite suppression and improved hormonal responses.
Why has PastaRx serving size decreased?
You don’t need very much PastaRx to reduce appetite. That’s why our recommended serving size has shifted from ½ cup to ¼ cup for Orzo. The new serving size supplies your maximum appetite suppression with the least amount of PastaRx.
What does crosslinking mean?
Certain amino acids contain sulfhydryl groups that can crosslink to each other to giving proteins their three-dimensional structure. The higher content of these sulfhydryl-rich proteins in PastaRx makes their crosslinking much more effective and greatly improves the formation of molecular cages around the carbohydrate. You experience the result by not being hungry after consuming a meal containing PastaRx.
Why is PastaRx is patented?
PastaRx uses a novel technology to crosslink the proteins to form molecular cages that can encapsulate the carbohydrates. This encapsulation not only reduces the rate of secretion of insulin upon eating PastaRx, but also increases the release of other hormones in the gut that go directly to the brain to tell you to stop eating. This is technology is so novel that it has been patented.

This is very good tasting and versatile. Quick question. I used the orzo in a casserole. Can leftovers in a dish like this be frozen for later eating?
Dr. Sears Zone –
Cathy, Thank you for your comment and question. Glad to hear you enjoyed the PastaRx Orzo. Yes, the PastaRx can be used in a casserole and frozen for meals and eaten at a later time. That is a great way to prepare ahead and to simplify your meals for the upcoming week. Thank You, Dr. Sears Zone.

Zone Orzo is delicious and satisfying! Just ordered more. The breakfast rice bowl and the lemon pepper shrimp scampi are two of my favorite recipes. Thanks Dr. Sears:)
I’m confused… The description is ‘perfectly Zone balanced’ yet the nutrition numbers for this are: Fat = 3g; Protein=15g; Net Carbs=19. Thus, the ratio is: Fat=16%; Protein=37%; Carbs=47%. That is NOT the 30/30/40 ratio I understood was ‘perfect’ for the zone diet. Am I missing something?
Dr. Sears Zone –
Stephen, Thank you for your question. The 40/30/30 balance is a general guideline for the intake of carbohydrates/proteins/fats based on caloric intake in the Zone. This is why Dr. Sears suggests that each Zone meal be approximately 350 calories with 12g fat (108 calories), 35g net carbohydrates (140 calories), and 25g protein (100 calories). With that said, what’s most important with the Zone Diet is the balance of carbohydrates-to-protein to minimize inflammation and help stabilize blood sugar levels keeping you feeling full for up to 5 hours. The fat component, especially if its anti-inflammatory fat like olive oil, is not as important to this balance so even though the PastaRx is a bit lower in total fat it has the ideal Zone balance of carbs-to-protein making it a perfect Zone Food. Dr. Sears also wanted to allow for individuals to personalize their PastaRx with a little olive oil, high protein vegetables, and maybe a small amount of protein (~1 oz) if desired, all while staying in the Zone. In addition, we do offer a number of recipes available at https://zonediet.com/recipes/pasta/ to add some variety to your PastaRx meals. We hope this helps you out Stephen. Thank You, Dr. Sears’ Zone

I have been staying away from the orzo and pasta because of the contents of these products.But I discovered that they are very satisfying and pleasant to eat. My hunger is gone about 5 or more hours and my satisfaction is much higher than I expected. I enjoy both and intend to continue using them.
Love this pasta. It’s almost like eating rice. Has great taste and texture.
We love the orzo, and use it to help polish of leftovers! It’s fun to experiment with.
Delia DeBuc –
I love this product. I am not a fan of rice or pasta at all but the orzo pasta is the perfect choice. I simply prepare it with olive oil and olives, so far so good!
Only had it once and loved it. Can not wait to use it again with many vegetable.
My whole family loves Zone orzo. We eat if for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks, the possibilities are endless. It’s easy, tastes great and prevents hunger for hours. Excellent product!

Dont be fooled by the price. Each cup of uncooked pasta is ~3 blocks. I add some frozen broccoli right at the end of cooking and 4-5 ml of extra virgin olive oil to make it a perfect zone meal or snack. Thanks for your research Dr. Sears!
This is the guilt free pasta because of the balanced nutritional content and zero arachidonic acid (toxic fat). The number of receipes are endless to suit all tastes. Satiation is complete for the next 3-5 hours.
Best food on the market. I use it in many different dishes plu as a base of a meal . Thank you!
We loved this Orzo! We are still finding wonderful ways to use this satisfying pasta.
My wife and I really love this product. Keeps us full for hours and tastes great.
