The actual time of day you eat is not a problem, as long as you spread your 11-12 blocks throughout the entire day in the form of Zone balanced meals and snacks, and you don't go longer than 5-6 hours without eating a Zone balanced meal or snack. Eight days is not very long, so give it some time. You might not lose weight because your measurements show you're already at an ideal weight, but you should soon begin to feel an increased sense of well-being and increased energy. Reading a Zone book is always helpful. Here are some links that can help:
Zone calculator, to check if your block amounts are correct: http://www.zonediet.com/Tools/Calcu...fault.aspx
Zone rules, Food Block lists, and a sample day's menu: http://www.zonediet.com/Tools/Quick...fault.aspx

If you'd like to post your meals and snacks for a day, including timing, specific foods and amounts, I'll be happy to take a looks to see what might help. If you do any exercise, you can note that on you sample day's menu too.
My sources show 1 block of yogurt to be about 125 ml., and 1 block of milk to be about 250 ml.
Some more tips, milk does not work well for some people because the carbohydrate is liquid and does not always give the best blood sugar control. Try switching to the milk to other lean protein sources and favorable carbohydrates and fats, and cutting back the amount of milk you drink to 1 glass a day or less. Also remember to take Omega Rx every day. The daily dose for a person beginning a diet is 5 g (8 capsules or 2 teaspoons liquid). Also drink plenty of water.
Please keep us updated. Good luck! :-)
