My 2 cents, is that the Zone recommendations don't work well for nursing or pregnant mothers. They are too low, especially during the first trimester while the placenta is being built (I've heard that effort equated to rock climbing an extremely difficult mountain).

My wife didn't do CF while pregnant, but our research and all the midwives we talked to recommend the Brewer Diet while pregnant

Link to a slide show detailing The Brewer Diet, work and family friendly.
