lynn, you got the foods; excellent!
"can you please help me out here to understand the logic in this planner ?"
The foods contain all the necessary P, C and F. The dinner selection packages (pastas and pizza crusts) contain twice as much P, C and F as the other food packages. If you want, you can add up to an ounce of lean protein to any meal, but it’s not necessary (limit of 1 dairy selection daily). Try to clear your mind of the original Zone plan for now and just follow this plan as presented. It’ll be fine. As I mentioned, basically the Zone foods contain all the protein you need. Think of the additions as condiments to make the meals fun, appetizing and full of variety. Your Zone foods will be the basis of all meals and snacks and you are free to add items similar to those suggested in the Zone 1-2-3 info. It’s really easy. You’ll see once you’ve put a few meals together. :-)
"Where do i eat the veggies and fruit it says to have on the grocery list?"
Eat them with meals or snacks.
"Am i on the right track here or not?"
Yes, looks good; might be a little bit long of a time frame you have between breakfast and lunch though.
"i am missing 1 snack"
You're not missing food because the fusilli package contains twice as much P, C and F as the other packages. When following the sample plan a suggested, it will be fine not to eat a late night snack. (note, it's a sample, not carved in stone)
" and my fruit i only see one portion here , so do i take the other portion and have it as a snack in between everything else,"
Take a look at the Grocery Additions page in the Weight Loss tab above, and you'll see it's 1 or 2 servings of fruit a day. It would even be fine not to eat fruit.
"in the booklet it says to have 8 potions veggies per day,fruits 2 per day"
When you look at the Grocery Additions page here, you'll see that's "up to 8" veggies, and 1 or 2 fruits, etc. Those additions are not requirements, more like guidelines on amounts not to exceed.
"Also when i do complete my two weeks can i then incorperate these new foods into the normal zone foods as i was eating befor,"
Yes, that would be fine.
You haven't mentioned Omega Rx and Sea Health Plus. They're two very important parts of the Zone 1-2-3 plan (1 = the new Zone foods, 2 = Zone fish oil and 3 = Zone polyphenols).
Last of all, drink a lot of water. It's been recommended to drink 2 cups (16 fl. oz.) before each meal. Your minimum daily water intake should be the number of fl. oz. equal to half your weight (if you weight 160 pounds, that's a minimum of 80 fl. oz. water daily). And dont' forget, you're supposed to drink one cup of water for each cup of tea or coffee you drink, due to their diuretic effect.
You can take a look at my Zone food journal here to get a better idea (Note I eat 1 more package of Zone food a day than you, because I have a higher LBM and activity level than the averge woman;it's very important to eat an appropriate amount to maintain your LBM.): http://www.zonediet.com/Community/F...fault.aspx
