 07 Sep 2003 07:28 PM I'm looking into the diet to see how it works. I've read articles that mention "blocks". I was just curious as to what these are, how they are counted, and how many a person can have per day.

Please check the body fat calculator on the main site. White Light

 24 Mar 2008 01:00 PM So for me, my body fat calculator tells me Body Fat %: 23.13 Body Fat Weight (lbs): 32.38 Lean Body Mass (lbs): 107.62 Daily Protein Requirement (g): 77.00 or # of Blocks of Protein: 11 # of Blocks of Carbohydrate: 11 # of Blocks of Fat: 11 I can eat 1100 calories per day. carb = 9g*11 = 99g carb protein = 7g*11 = 77g protein (consistent with what it says above) fat = 3g*11 = 33 g fat Does anyone know the nutritional info for the 7 day meal planner on the main Eating page? How many blocks does that target? Do people use this block business as a means of counting similar to WW's points? My breakfast was 3 blocks, I have 8 more blocks on the day?

 24 Mar 2008 06:11 PM Hi Stephanie, The 7 day meal planner for women is based on 11 blocks. Remember that you'd add two 1 block snacks to your day, one of them at bedtime. The meals shown in the women's planner each contain 3 blocks. For those with a dessert, the dessert is included in the 3 blocks. I'm not familiar with how Weight Watcher's works. If you require 11 blocks a day and you ate a 3 block breakfast, then yes, you would have 8 blocks left for the day. Your remaining blocks should be spread throughout the day being sure to follow the Zone rules.
