In Response To: Carbohydrates, Exercise and Type O's (Adam Gilbert)
You might want to get cassette copies of the two interviews I did recently on the "Laura Lee Show" (you can the LINK button from the main page.) I did go into specifics there that I cannot really delve into in a short post.
Having said that, I think with regard to O's it is not necessarily the amount of carbohydrate that is important (ie "blocks" and "ratios") but rather WHICH carbohydrates to use and which to avoid. Doing a cross comparision between the O diet and the Zone diet, one can see great similarities, but I would think that the type O diet would be perhaps even more protein centered, (perhaps like the Atkins diet) than the 40:30:30 of the Zone.
There are no particularly "beneficial" grains for type O, although buckwheat, millet, spelt, amaranth and rye can be used in low overall percentages.
Performance-wise, I would expect similar results to what you've experienced doing the Zone diet, with perhaps a bit of refinement.
