Hey Everyone!

I posted a few months ago asking a million and one questions about starting to zone and I just wondering if anyone would check out my current meal plan and give me pointers.

I stopped training about 5 weeks ago due to injury and the need for rest and I haven't picked up my pace again but I am working off 11 blocks.

Breakfast - 2 whole eggs
1 piece of shortcut bacon
6 prunes

Lunch - 90gm grilled chicken breast
2 tablespoons semi dried tomato's(in oil)
1 whole pear or orange

Snack - 1 curried egg (mayo)
3 dried apricots

Dinner - 90gms chicken or beef
hokkein noodles or 6 tspns of rice
1 cup of broccoli/caulflower
1.5 teaspoons peanut butter

Snack - 1 curried egg
3 dried apricots

I have also cut coffee down to 2 cups a day.

Does this look Ok, I had been eating bread (zone qty) but it makes me feel so bloated, I can't stomach it anymore after zoning.

Welcome back Sam, get some nuts and seeds in the meals for you fat blocks...peanut are technically legumes, not nuts.

Thanks Larry, when you say seeds, what kind would you say are better, I've never really eaten seeds so I'm not sure or would I be better off sticking with some almonds?

hmm, perhaps if you are eating that many eggs every day you may consider at times substituting 2 egg whites for 1 whole egg as to control consumption of cholesterol a little bit (If you are not doing that already).

For the seeds/nuts: sesame seeds, almonds, almond butter and tahini are great sources of fat. You could also try avocado or olive oil as a great source of fat too!

kashews and peanuts although yummy are not as good sources of fat for you as the others are although in moderation are healthy enough (as per zone reccomendations for good food choices)

But overall, if you feel great, then you are doing great!!

Sam, macadamia nuts are a tasty source of monounsaturated fat. 1 nut = 1.5g fat = 1 fat block. Sunflower seeds are a great source of vitamin e (90% ADA DV) and also are high in protein to carb (1:1)ratio and have quite a bit of fat.
Vitamin e is one of the only vitamins that the zone falls short on, making sunflower seeds a very attractive addition to the day.

I have made a terrible error.
