When I was on the Zone diet in 2007 I developed pretty bad sinus problems that caused me to leave the diet and change to a Zero Carb Atkins type of Diet which caused the problem to go away. Since starting the Zone again this March, I've noticed that the sinus issue is coming back.
I was searching the internet and found this site that said sinus problems can be caused by an allergy to any food - http://www.foodallergysolutions.com...s0309.html
Since the symptoms went away when I was eating no plant food of any kind, I'm probably allergic to some fruit or vegetable (I'm thinking it's got to be a fruit because after the Zero Carb Diet I was on a Vegan Diet where the only fruit allowed was grapefruit and I had no sinus issues).
I should probably go to an allergist for testing. Before doing that, I thought I'd ask if anyone knows of another relationship between Zone eating and sinus problems. ???
Or, perhaps, if I give it enough time on the Zone, my immune system will improve and the allergy will go away. I was on the Zone diet for over a year before and it didn't. Has the Zone Diet cleared up allergies for anyone?
