More Zone questions

I have several questions.

First of all, I'm getting back on the zone, or I'm gonna attempt to get better at it. The problem I had in the past was getting all the meals into my day. I'm a 13 blocker and I never was able to get the last snack in at the end of the day, I was usually wiped so I just went to bed. My first question is this, can I change the number of meals to 4 (something like 3 4 block meals, and 1 1 block snack) and will that benefit me better, or will I be out of that "Zone" hormonal balance?

My second question is how do I know if I'm very carb sensitive or not? I know that I get headaches when I don't eat enough carbs when I've zoned in the past, which ultimatley led to my deviation.

Thanks
Juan

Re: More Zone questions

More information needed - height/weight would help.

4 meals would be fine, you'd just have to eat more at the 4.
