It's a very healthy diet. Are you diabetic or borderline? For me, it was too restrictive.

I got a bit confused by the "blocks," at first. I don't follow the Zone, but I used a lot of the Zone principles in the exchange plan I do follow (I've read several of the Zone books, and they influenced the plan I did create for myself. I also learned alot from the South Beach diet and the Volumetrics book, and right now I'm reading The end of overeating - which is a really interesting read).

If you log your food into online food journals like the one at Spark People, or The Daily Plate, it gives nutritional percentages and I think would make following the Zone even easier.

It is a good healthy diet. It was just confusing, time consuming and planning since you have to follow a 40% carbs/30% protein/30% fat nutrition ratio for each meal. I still generally try to have a protein, carb and fat with each meal just not always those exact %s. I also feel fuller longer eating that way.

Default thanks

thanks for the feedback. I am not a diabetic nor do I have any other health issues. I'm trying to stay on the zone but it is a little hard making sure I get everything I need. I actually made and printed a list of 5 options for each meal. So that when I go to eat I already have a few options to pick from preplanned meals. It goes a little smoother that way so I'm not standing in the kitchen scratching my heard trying to figure out what to eat.
I'm really awful at logging my food in a journal. I've tried and after a few days I give up. Its frustrating. My life is so hectic sometimes and it just gets in the way of the really important things, which I'm sure a lot of people understand.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it.
