Black Box, can't search box is three letters : (

I tried to search, but unfortunatley box is a three letter word so it doesn't get counted.

What is this black box everyone reffers to

also, side note, can someone link me an explanation of zone dieting, i am so lost with this block concept.

Re: Black Box, can't search box is three letters : (

Someone will provide a more detailed, explanation, I'm sure. 'Black box' in CF means to experiment on yourself. If I wanted to find out how my body reacts to nightshades, I might 'put it in the black box' i.e. stop eating nightshades for awhile, then reintroduce them and see what happens. Black box doesn't answer 'why' or 'how' but it does answer 'what happens when I do this?'

Input ----> Black Box ----> Output

You can't see what happens inside the black box (the 'why or how') but you can see the end result. If you stand outside a factory and see steel go in one side and cars come out the other, but you never see inside the factory, the factory is a black box.

Sounds like a very ontological problem. Thanks for the explanation.

For here it is basically our way of saying try it and see what happens. Some people have good results with programs and nutrition that others can not replicate.

Here is the link to the journal article. It gives enough detail to start doing the zone, even if you don't get all the rational behind it. But in the spirit of the original question, you don't need to understand it - just black box it! :stir:

Are there any kick start plans? Like a more rigid laid out month meal plan, designed to jump start this whole thing, or is switching over to paleo a big enough detoxifier.
