Hi. Im new to the Zone and wonder how you people eat/drink after a hard workout. I usually drink about 5dl of chocolate milk (wholemilk) as i need the carbs and proteins immediately after a workout. Do you count that from your daily blocks or does this come in addition? I crossfit and have followed Paleo for a while, so im used to the post-workout "meal" to not count as your daily diet since its strictly for recovery.
The second thing on my mind is how you count your fat blocks. The fat in my diet i usually get from nuts, seeds, oils, avacado etc. and i try to keep it as "clean" as possible by not eating the bad-fat. However i feel that i reach my "quota" of fat (4 blocks) simply from the oil i use in my fryingpan for the meat and veggies. So it leaves me with almost non of the other fat sources, do you add fat in addition to the oils you use for cooking or would that simply be enough for a 4block meal?
Looking forward to hearing from you guys :)
