Zone Challenge

So I propose that in April we have ourselves a little cleanest diet contest. Like on that Seinfeld episode, we will be bound within the confines of the honour system.  I will create a page where we can post our meals. As an example.

Mike – March 20 th  Breakfast 5 block meal:

Protein: 3 oz canadian bacon,1 glass of milk, half cup plain yogurt.

Carb: 1 glass of milk, half cup plain yogurt, 1 cup strawberries, half cup blueberries, tsp sugar

Fat: Macamedamias, almonds

Lunch  5 block meal:

Protein: 4 oz ckn, 1 glass milk.

Carbs:  36 spear asparagus ( 3 blocks) 1 tbs raisins, 1 glass of milk.

Fat: Handful of assorted nuts. macamedamias,almonds,pecans.

I cooked the ckn in a curry  paste, and the asparagus was sauteed in a little garlic butter both of which I did not account for in the blocks. So a little extra carb this meal.

  1. Ok here we go Day 1
    I’ve decided to go with the Hard Gainer model with is 21 blocks.
    pre-work out
    2 cups 1% milk, 2 mac nuts-2 blocks
    8 egg whites
    1 ounce skim milk mozzarella
    1 ounce back bacon
    1 apple
    1 orange
    1 piece rye bread
    1 1/2 teaspoons peanut butter
    4 table spoons olive oil
    6 blocks total

    9 ounces crab meat
    1 small spinach salad (as per mastering the zone=1block)
    1 orange
    1/2 whole wheat pita

    3 tablespoons mayo (fat free)
    2 tablespoons olive oil and vinegar (for salad)
    6 blocks total

    1 ounce deli meat turkey
    1/2 apple
    4 mac nuts

    1 block total

    6 ounces Chicken

    2.5 ounces Back bacon
