    Either with weight loss or energy. I just got the platinum because I can't stand the weight anymore and trying to follow "The Zone" way of eating. I'm just curious if these products work and if they interfere with fibro.Seems that fibro slows down our metabolisms (it has mine) Thanks

    I think most of us find that we need to go more high protein and less carbs than the Zone allows. I hope it works for you, but if not , you might consider Atkins or Sommers diets,as there are several people here on them. I personally prefer The Metabolic Typing Diet, which is individualized based on your genetics. You will need the book of the same name to find out what your diet would be.
    I'm sorry, I don't know anything about Advocare.
    I do believe this illness slows metabolism, and most of the drugs we take for it also slow it.
    Good luck,

    I may have to modify the diet a bit. I don't think I could do Atkins, maybe Somers. I'll let you all know how the Advocare works for me, take care,
