from what i have read the zone diet says that black beans (cooked), kidney beans (cooked), and garbonzo beans aka chickpeas are favorable. lima beans, pinto beans, and baked beans are unfavorable.

the paleo diet does recommend to stay away from all beans. i think if i remember correctly it is due to high levels of anti-nutirents (a kind of biological safety mechanism).
