If you were wondering how he figured that out …there are four calories in 1 gram of protein, four calories in one gram of carbohydrates, and 9 calories in one gram of fat. One zone block consists of 7 grams of protein, 9 grams of carbohydrates, and 1.5 grams of fat. One zone block has about 77.5 calories in it. So if you were to eat 17 blocks (17 X 77.5= 1317.5) George is exactly right the volume of vegetables you would have to eat to get 17 blocks would be huge but calorie wise it is actually very low. So if you want to start the zone I would start with atleast 23 blocks like George said. 17 blocks is what I eat and I am just under 150 pounds.
