Hi Jennifer, We don't count blocks on the ZoneFast Program, it's based on calories- we tried to make it very simple. The grocery additions is what you utilize for direction along with... http://www.zonediet.com/TypicalZone...fault.aspx
So following that, depending on meal timing, a woman would have 1 Snack per day, and could have...
B: Multigrain Bagel with 1 1/2 Tbsp Light Cream Cheese (ok, Just switch Cream Cheese to 1 1/2Tbsp)
S: Whole Zone Brownie (ok)
L: White Sandwich Roll piled with Romaine Lettuce, 4 Slices of Roma Tomato, and about a 1tsp-1 1/2tsp of Mustard, 4 Olives (May want to add 1 oz Protein)
D: 1/2 Pizza Crust with Tomato Sauce, 1oz. Feta Cheese, 4 Olives and ~1/2 Cup Green Beans (could have whole pizza)
So to any of the foods(don't think blocks now) you can add according to the grocery additions(see for serving size)... (Up to 8 servings per day-non starchy veggies), (1 serving per day-legumes), (1 - 2 servings per day-fruit)
(1 servings per day, optional-dairy), (No more than 3 servings per day-condiments), Use less protein: You don’t have to add extra protein to a ZoneFast™ meal, as the Zone Foods will supply all your daily protein requirements. If you do, use only small amounts of extra protein, 1 oz. like a condiment. The ZoneFast Program takes into account that you would utilize 3- "2block" and 1-"4block" items for a woman. A man would add 1-"2block"item daily.
I understand your confusion because you are counting blocks, which you can do but then you would disregard the grocery list and utilize the "2 block food items" add to that another 1 block C/P/F, for a 3 block meal or build it to a 4 block meal (depending on how you break up your daily blocks). If you have 3 block meals, then this is where 1/2 a pizza would come into play because you start with a 4 block pizza crust, to that you would add 2 blocks C/P/F.
I hope that helps, bon appetit! Congrats on winning the contest
