The Zone is excellent for running. Most of my family runs and we're Zoners. My husband and 2 adult daughters have run marathons, and one of my daughters also does the Hood to Coast, all without carb loading, and they don't use high carbohydrate gels, drinks or snacks for trainging or at events.
is a Zone forum member frn Belgium who runs marathons. She has excellent times, which have improved with the Zone (3:17 in the NYC Marathon last year, if I remember right) and has posted here about it. Here's one of her threads: http://www.zonediet.com/Community/F...fault.aspx
You can find more by searching for her posts with the username ADELA00 (those are zeros at the end, not o's).
