Hiya - Just two quick questions about zone blocks

1) How do you figure zone blocks on things like meat and vegetable stews or animal protein based sauces... for example a thick sauce with ground beef, tomatoes, olives, peppers, and olive oil...

2) How do you work in zone blocks to tasting in a farmer's market?... We go almost weekly and taste almost everything before we buy it, and end up eating probably the equivalent of two large pieces of fruit... should I tote along some string cheese or are shopping trips a good thing to do on your free days?

Thank you in advance for your answers

Cassi-

1- Its really hard. I love soups and this has been one of my conundrums regardign the Zone and why I tend towards cyclic low carb. You can add up the total blocks for the whole pot and then divide it "equally" but unless it is a puree it will be a guess at best.
2-if you think you get in 2 pieces of fruit try deleting an equivilent amount from a later meal. Not perfect but close.

Would you consider this a "health" diet or "performance" diet?

Both for sure. Lots of met-con is tough on a CLC but its fantastic for a strength phase.

Cassi, sorry didn't mean to steal your thread. All I know is everytime I listen to Robs advice I lose more fat.

Cassi-
I dont recomend the weekend long free-for-all. One day with a little higher carb level...perhaps some of the foods you do not normaly eat (more fruit, potatoes etc). This seems to work best for general health, fat loss and maintainance.
