My wife has jumped on the Atkins bandwagon, and after one week, seems *very* happy about it. She's cooking our meals along those guidelines, and for the most part, I'm not starving!
I plan to follow her on one of these low-carb adventures... but I'm doing a bit more research before following suit. From the library, we've both gotten the Atkins book, and the Hellers' "Carbohydrate Addicts Lifestyle Plan." I put a hold on the Eades' "Protein Power" book.
At the suggestion of someone in the Low-Carb area of the 3FC message boards, I'm here to find info on the zone. Read through the "Zone #28" thread, but I'd like a little more info, please.
The one thing that concerns me about the Sears plan is the timing. I've read a couple of magazine articles about "The Zone," and in both cases, I recall it saying that you had to be absolutely *meticulous* about *when* you eat. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are eaten at the same time, *every* day, *regardless* of what your schedule is like.
Is that true? Any other comparisons/contrasts that can be drawn between "The Zone" and some of the other low-carb plans out there?
Thanks a lot!
