I happen to think that the "Zone" diet is very good, and fully agree with Dr. Sears that its principles can best be applied to type O's versus A, B and AB.
The mechanism of insulin mimicking by lectins is well understood. Basically, many of the grain-derived lectins (especially wheat) attach to the insulin receptor on the fat cells and proceed to stimulate the fat cell to continually convert carbohydrate to stored fat. Because the lectins are not subject to the standard ways of being degraded (like insulin is, by feedback inhibition) they just continually stimulate the fat deposition non-stop.
