A daily 15 Block days in the Zone for me:

5 Block Breakfast (Rarely Ever changes)

8-10 OZ Black Coffee, 1 Multivitamin, 16 OZ Water

1/2 Dry Oatmeal used to make; 1 Serving 3 Blocks C
1 Cup Frozen Strawberries 1 Block C
1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries 1 Block C
2 Egg Yolks and 2 Egg white Omelet 3 block P
2 1/2 TBSP Protein Powder 2 Block P
1 TBSP All Natural Peanut Butter 5 blocks Fat

I mix the Protein Powder, Peanut Butter, and Frozen Fruit all together. The Omelet I have with just a small amount of salsa and pepper.

4 Block Lunch
1 slice Multigrain bread 2 blocks C
2 Blocks C, worth of Fruit (Usually 1 apple, orange, or 1 cup grapes)
6 0z Of lean Deli Meat (Ham, Turkey or Chicken) or 4.5 oz of meat and 1 oz 2% milk Poly-o string cheese / 4 blocks P
12 Almonds /4 blocks F

4 Block Dinners
4 Oz of grilled Chicken breast, lean meat or fish (usually salmon) /4 blocks P
2 1/2 Cups Frozen Broccoli, which I steam /1 block C
3 Blocks C worth of fruit
1 TSP Olive Oil Drizzled on Chicken and Broccli/3 blocks F
2/3 Tsp Sunflower seeds/ 2 blocks F
(I add an extra fat Block Because I figure I’m not getting all the Olive Oil unless I drink it from the Measuring Spoon).

2 Block Snack

1/2 Cottage Cheese Lactaid Fat-Free

4 Blocks worth of Fat blocks from nuts (because no fat in Cottage Cheese)

2 blocks C worth of fruit.

There are two blocks of fat in each egg. So your breakfast is technically outside of Zone parameters.

2 blocks of fat in each egg??? Yes, there is fat in each whole egg, but the fat does not count toward your fat blocks (at least according to Dr. Sears book, the CFJ #21 and many other posters here). Check here:

I am by no means an expert in the zone (only been on it strictly for a month) so I am hesitant to correct someone. Where are you getting that you count the fat as blocks in each egg?

Dunno, there was a discussion before about it. I count them. I honestly doubt it matters that much as most people eat less then say 5 whole eggs a day. I do not have issue 21 of the CFJ. I would take that as a much more reliable source of information then me.

Nick, I appreciate the advice, but I disagree. I didn't intend this thread to be a discussion on the “ controversy “ of the amount of fat blocks in a whole egg .I just want to know if I’m zoning right.
