Suggest you pick up some of his other Zone books if you are getting into the recipes as ther organization might be what you are looking for :
Here's a link to a copy of "A Week In The Zone" used for a buck : http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/Sea...prevpage=1
A Week in the Zone: What the Zone is How to eat in the Zone How to shop in the Zone A week's worth of healthy, satisfying recipes including quick and easy Zone breakfasts, lunches, and dinners The Zone for vegetarians How to order in and dine out in the Zone How to achieve maximum success in the Zone.
Here's something about meals from our leader you might find useful - at the end is the link to the interview where the quote came from.
I'll do one better, I'll give a typical day on the Zone Diet for an average female. This average female would start the day off with a six egg white omelets to which she would add two tsp. of olive oil. She'd add 2/3 of a cup of slow cooked oatmeal. Because the more processed the oatmeal is, the faster it will enter your bloodstream and the greater effect it will have on your insulin response. Now finish the breakfast off with a cup of strawberries. Now for lunch, a tuna salad consisting of one head of lettuce, two cucumbers, three bell peppers, a 1/4 cup of chick peas, 4 oz. of tuna fish with a little mayo and a piece of fruit for dessert. Now, at 5pm, we'll have a hormonal snack consisting of 1 oz. of sliced turkey and a 1/2 piece of fruit. For dinner, she'd have 5 oz. of salmon, 4 cups of steamed veggies, and a cup of mixed berries for dessert. And, before bed, a glass of wine and a piece of cheese.
Dr. Sears, how many calories is this a day?
Dr. Sears: That would be about 1200 calories a day, though most females would have a difficult time eating all the food. The average for males would be about 1500 a day, but he too would have a difficult time eating it all because once you switch to eating lower density carbs it becomes difficult to eat all of the food you have to. http://www.lowcarb.ca/articlesa/article220.html
This would be another good choice - maybe the better of the two :
