Re: Starting on the Zone : Where to start ?


I have been doing some googleing and have a few quesitons....
Forgive my ignorance as I haven't got the book yet...its ordered though

Anyay, CFJ 21 says
Oatmeal 1/3 cup is 1 Block.

So I looked at my Flahavans Organic Porridge Oats this morning and got the following...
100g (386kcal : 11.1g Protein, 77g Carb, 5.5g Fat).

Now how can 1 Cup of Porridge be 3P when its mainly Carbs ?
How can any food be just F, P or C ? Are almost all not a combination ?

Really confused here

Trying to come up with a breakfast schedule for next week to ease my way in *hope to add lunch after that etc...) but finding it difficult to put blocks to amounts of food.

Help appreciated
