I'v e never heard of that but is sounds fascinating. Hello and welcome.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I have genetically inherited anxiety since I was a young teenager. I've been on several medications for it since the 1980s.

Since restarting a strict Zone programme of eating which balances your hormone levels Feb 5, 2013,for the first time in over a decade I find I am happy, alert, no moodiness, not hungry, don't crave inappropriate foods, eat far less than I've ever done and more productive. I need to drop 50 lbs. as soon as I can. I eat in the Zone rather than count calories but it adds up to 1100-1200 cal/day and I feel great and not deprived at all.
All my carbs are coming from vegetables and fruit: no grains or root vegetables. You don't have to be this strict but it works for me. I find that I couldn't eat more calories/day if I wanted to.
All this I am finding utterly amazing. I started eating this way to ward off onset diabetes and this is it's AWESOME SIDE EFFECT: IT HAS SUBSTANTIALLY DIMINISHED MY ANXIETY!!
Would be happy to encourage anyone to try this.

I'm interested in hearing from others how the Zone is changing their life. It's been huge for me, on every level.
