 30 Nov 2008 04:00 PM Hello all!! I am coming home to the zone starting tomorrow!! Gained too much weight. The biggest obstacle I find with recipies is converting the appropriate blocks. Most recipies are 4 blocks. How do you make the recipie for 3 blocks? There must be an easy way. I tend to stay away from the 4 block recipies (which are usually better) b/c I have no clue how to scale them down appropriately. Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks

 30 Nov 2008 04:30 PM Hi Kelly Converting is easy. To calculate for a 3 block meal - divide all the ingredients by 4 then multiply by 3. Or you could make the 4 block recipe - eat the the equivalent of 3 blocks (eyeball) and have the 1 block that is leftover as a snack. Or you could have 2x2 block meals. Margaret
