Yes Claire, it should be raw. The amounts shown in the Zone food block list are for raw meat, fish and pountry, except the obvious cooked items such as deli-style meats. You'll be eating more protein than you need (as well as throwing off meal balance) if you apply the Zone food block list amounts to cooked meat. The moisture lost in cooking reduces the weight needed to yield 1 protein block.
Lost 100 lbs 15 yrs ago, off BP meds, thanks to the Zone diet and Zone fish oil. ZoneFast 1-2-3 is the best!
