Is there a specific Zone Diet book that CF follows? I've notice Dr. Sears has written different versions, and I would really like to read the book to clean up my diet. Thanks

Reed, pick up either "Mastering the Zone" or issue 21 of the Crossfit Journal. Dr Sears has definitely created a huge list of work, though it varies little, if at all from one to the next. These two resources are a must-have for the committed Crossfitter, though.

Chris, if you check out the search function at the top of the page, you will find extensive resources on the Zone diet right here in the Crossfit forums. Outside of that, you can check out issue #21 of the Crossfit Journal, as well as reading up on http://www.drsears.com

The short answer? The Zone is a nutritional plan that enhances body composition, performance and logevity via hormonal optimization. It accomplishes this through the manipulation of macronutrient ratios in every meal. Many of Crossfit's best performers are on the Zone.

Besides that, everything you need can be found with a little work. Good luck.

I just picked up Sears' Mastering the Zone for $0.95 on Amazon.com...so, this question may in fact get answered, but impatience is my flaw.

When I design a 4-block meal, I may have a 4-ounce chicken breast to cover my protein blocks... however, most of the stuff I've read (CFJ # 21, DrSears.com) would have me eating 4 blocks of carbs (or 36 grams, I believe) - but chicken doesn't get counted as a combo block. Is the amount of protein in chicken negligable or...?

Do you mean the amount of carbohydrates in chicken? If that's your point, then yes, the carbohydrates in meat are definitely negligible. That is one of the strengths of the Zone and the block system, it takes a lot of the intricate calculation out of the process of keeping track of macronutrients.
