It's a moderate carb diet if I'm not mistaken. It's the big "hollywood" thing because there are places that deliver Zone based meals to your door. I believe it's more of a balance rather than restricted carbs.
Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I just read the book and looked thru the website. I think the Zone Diet says almost exactly what alot of nutrition gurus on here say. My wife is interested in learning more about carb restricted diets and she's read the BFL book but didn't get a darn thing out of it. I told her to stay away from the Atkins book.
It seems to me that the Zone Diet isn't a weight loss diet but a way of eating for life. Even though it may not work well for bodybuilders, it should work for the average person. I'd like to know what the board's "experts" think.
