Hello i am new to the zone. According to the block calculator i need 10 blocks per day. I am 5'3 196 lbs and 24 y/o female. My lean body mass is 118lbs. Now my question is, this morning i had some almond butter with my apple. The label says there are 16g of fat per 2 tablespoons. I had 1 Which is 8g so would i count that as 3g for 2 and a half blocks of fat or 1.5g which puts me at almost 6 blocks? This was my meal 4 egg whites, Half a cup of salsa (which i just read the label and it says theres 2g of carbs per 2 tbsp) and half a small apple and 1 tbsp of almond butter. I devided my blocks like this. 2 blocks for breakfast, 3 blocks for lunch and 2 blocks for dinner. Plus 3 1 block snacks. Please help me:)

That's little bit more fat than you needed, but it's not a big deal. If you're counting fat grams, you'd want about 6g fat in a 2 block meal.
