Day 2 On the Zone.. I am stuffed!

Please double check my zone logic.

139 lbs lean body mass
28% BF (per zone calculator, and I think it's close, given how crummy I look right now)

5'7" - 189 (down from 193 two weeks ago)

I started out 2 weeks ago on a restricted calorie Atkins approach, no intent to o it long term, but just to jump start. Did pretty well, no hunger etc. But my WOD on Sunday bonked!

OK sez I, let's get real about the Zone. I need CARBS.

According to Dr, Sears, I am a 14 blocker.

Today's lunch: 4 blocks

4 oz combined of deli turkey and roast
3 cups romaine
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup white grapes
1/3 cup kidney beans
4 blocks olive oil

Does this look right for a 4 block meal? I -think- it's right.

It is a chore to get all this down! I am full. Not uncomfortably so, but quite full.

Really just looking for a sanity check on my meal prep.

I feel very good, and alert, and do not get hungry in 4 hours, but by 5 hours, I am a bit peckish. So e'thing "feels" right.

Thx

Welcome to the Zone.

Yes, vegetables are a ton! They need to be, because they have a ton of fiber.

I'd read through the Ten Pound Challenge post - you'll find a TON of Zone information in there. (http://board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=20229)
