Most people start on the Zone to try to loose weight. After they get to a weight they like, they increase the fat intake by 2-5x in order to get enough calories per day. That's the main modification that has to be made, though depending on your performance in your workouts, you may need to tweak the protein and carbs a bit too. Eventually, you'll find your "zone" where you perform well, and the block-counting method will make it easy to stay in that "zone."

Find the old crossfit journals dealing with the zone. Can't recall offhand which ones they are. Should be listed in the FAQ.

CFJ #21, various zone diet websites and doing a search of the nutrition have all the info you need. I have two of the books. I rarely refer to either and they will probably go on the charity pile. The diet works but possibly not for the reasons Sears states.
