Congrats on you past Zone success! It sounds like you probably already have a pretty good idea about what to do. Be sure to inform your doctor that you're changing your diet, and work closely with him/her to determine your daily insulin needs. Consider taking Omega Rx and a Zone polyphenol supplement to enhance the inflammation lowering aspects of the Zone.
Whichever method you choose (Zone At-a-Glance, block method, 1-2-3, gram counting, etc.), if you follow the guidelines you will end up with meals and snacks containing basically the same proportions of protein, carbohydrate and fat, so go with the method that is easiest and most comfortable for you. The stricter your adherence to Zone principles, the better your results will be. Drink plenty of water. Remember to keep eating throughout the day, not going more than 5 hours without eating a Zone balanced meal or snack. It’s important to provide a steady supply of protein and other nutrients to your body. Keep it simple and regardless of the method you use, focus on choosing your specific carbohydrates from the vegetables and fruits in the Zone Food Block Guide found here: http://drsears.com/ArticlePreview/t...fault.aspx
There are tons of great suggestions in these forums and in Zone books. I'll be happy to help if you have questions.
