I'm wondering if someone can tell me how I'm doing in my first week of the Zone.
A typical day for me:
Breakfast is either:
3/4 cups low fat cottage cheese
3 cups of strawberries
teaspoon of almond slivers
One regular ol' egg and two turkey sausage links with fruit - usually 1.5 cup grapes, 3 cups strawberries (rare!) or one whole apple.
mid morning snack:
1/2 green apple
1 stick of part skim string cheese
tsp. natural no sugar added peanut butter - I know this is more than recommended but will it hinder my weight loss or zone-ness?
1 low carb whole wheat tortilla with either 1/4 to 1/2 cup black beans, sprouts, tomatoes, lite sour cream (teaspoon) and a dribble of salsa
with a side of grapes (varies depending on how many black beans I put on the taco) 1/2 cup or strawberries 1 cup and usually a few sprinkles of nuts - less than a teaspoon.
1 low carb tortilla with sliced deli turkey, avacado 1-3 teaspoons/slices depending on what else I'm having, spinach, tomato and either strawberries, grapes or an apple on the side(same as above)
Dinner is usually chicken and a salad with oil and balsamic vinagarette and really varies too much to list but is in the zone.
I really like grapes with balsamic vinagarette and a little olive oil - sometimes I have this with cheese for a zone snack too.
Any information would be wonderful.
