Heya guys..i have yet another question. I was wondering which is better for a very active athelete, the Zone diet or the Paleo diet. I've been on the zone awile and have'nt really seen any improvements, but then again i'm stupid so i was probubly doing something wrong. I was just wondering which diet you all thought worked better and which is best for an athelete.

Why not both? Most people do both. Eat paleo friendly foods in zone quantities and ratios.

Another vote for both. I try to eat within Zone perameters with Paleo foods as often as possible. When I can't quite eek out an entire Paleo meal, I know the Zone system is helping allay many of the negative consequences of foods like grains and dairy.

my head is spinning with all the information. I have looked into the zone diet and am trying to incorporate that into my day. Garrett has me hooked on raw deer meat and now Paleo. I have seen in mentioned before but where can I study more on it.

cheers,
sheila

Sheila:

Try www.thepaleodiet.com.

(And: you can also check www.paleodiet.com. I just did by accident. Seems like there's probably some good information there too, although I didn't take the time to try and read anything. There's a *ton* of info on there, it looks like.)

What's bad about dairy products? I assume that would include cottage cheese which I really like and is the only dairy I consume. Is there something in the occasional bowl of slow cooked oats that could be affecting my performance?

Thank you Joe and Greg!! Besides the very evolutionist perspective I enjoyed the read. Amazingly enough I do not eat most of the "don't eat" foods. Over the past few years I have been eliminating foods that make me feel sluggish. Potatoes, Kidney beans, peas,wheat and dairy were the hugest offenders.
I find wheat the hardest to avoid. Bread made with anything but wheat is nasty so I have been retraining myself out of toast for breakfast and a sandwich at lunch. I hardly think of it any more.
I have replaced salt with sea salt- is that allowed?
What about fermented dairy products like cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese? If these are eliminated how do you get enough variety?
Is brown sugar on the hit list as well? I will sweeten my chia with brown sugar-honey doesn't taste right.
Another burning question is, How do I keep growing kids FULL. My kids eat like there is no tomorrow and are thin as rails (my oldest boy is almost 16, 5'8" and 110lbs) We are very active and I am concerned about a balanced diet for them.

Sorry for the onslot of questions- the inquiring mind needs to know...

cheers
sheila
