    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article? What can I do to improve? Thanks!
    Here is my article: A Definitive Guide to The Zone Diet

      Hi Ben,

      It's not really a 'definitive guide'. It's quite short. And this is the kind of page you are competing with: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/zone-diet#section5

      I've never understood what 'macros' are in terms of food. So perhaps you could explain what that means?

      Never use i instead of I. It's really unprofessional. 'Zone Diet' should be capitalised as it is a proper noun. As should 'Google'.

      Change 'Introduction' and 'Conclusion' to proper subtitles. All subtitles should be seen as opportunities to include useful key phrases.

      One problem is that you are writing on one of those dodgy topics that get a bit of a bad rap. That means the editors are looking for deeply referenced and useful information. Diet articles must be of the highest standard. So do your best to lift yours out of the 'run-of-the-mill' groove and make it 'definitive'.

      Hope that helps.

        That helps a lot, thank you!  I have written articles on a few other diets in a similar format, with introduction starting and conclusion to finish, all of them got featured.  I am definitely going to follow everything you have said though and i really appreciate your advice, thank you.

      May an approach like "My Experience on the Zone Diet" would attract more readers.

    One suggestion from me.Use APA format in titles and subtitles.

      The article does use APA titles.
