>When I was reccently diagnosed bipolar I went to a nutritionist to help me out. I am a personal trainer who until this illness hit was always active and thought I new everything there was to know about eating. Anyway Believe it or not higher carbohydrates and protien are essential but so is a little extra added fatt Omega 3 fatty acids. Ex; Fish Oils. Salmon. Stay away from any artifical sweetners and have as little artifical preservatives as possible. Other things to avoid are refined sugars and caffein. . Keep your foods as whole as possible. Whole grains fruits, veggies. Even low fat cheese's in moderation. I reccomend buying the Ameican Dietietics Book on Nutrition. It comes in Paper Back. ALso you might want to find yourself a good nutritionist. The zone is okay but you don't need that kind of pressure now to be on a so called "diet". Eat healty. I really do reccomend seeing a nutrionist, it helped me alot or you can e-mail me @ Good luck! Ellen
