Hi, all;
I'm going on "The Zone" starting tomorrow, and I'm looking for tips on healthy and easy snacks. If anyone can recommend one of the many "Zone" books out there - or websites - that would be super.
I use www.fitday.com to help track my caloric quantity and quality, and I work out CrossFit style 3-4 times a week, plus olympic weightlifting 2-3 times a week. Looking to lose fat!
Any tips/advice, I'm all ears.

Cheers!:happy:}}

Hi, Teri!

I started by reading "Entering the Zone" it was very helpful, I've also heard about "Mastering the zone" but have not read that yet. I use fitday too, incase you didn't notice a lot of their food listings are WAY off. If you really want to be accurate I suggest entering the foods you eat regularly into the custom section. I used to just choose closest thing I could find in fitday and after two months realized I was not eating a 40/30/30 diet and was actually far off!

This CrossFit article summarizes it.

Nadia, thanks for the tip about fitday, I have noticed that their food portions tend to start large rather than small!

I should say that I have the "Enter the Zone" book, but so far have found their snack and meal suggestions limited.

Patrick, thanks for the links, that CrossFit article is awesome! I've read some of your other posts, and I'm paying attention to my dairy intake as a result.

Cheers,

Ter[/face]

"Mastering the Zone" is more of a recipe book. It offers plenty of good suggestions for snacks and meals.

I was just at the bookstore the other day and I saw at least 4 recipe/block plan books specifically for The Zone, so there are plenty of resources out there.

Good Luck

Patrick,

Is Coach Glassman comfortable with you lifting that article from the CFJ and making it public?

Most of the zone books can be found on Amazon.com and they are usually $.01 plus shipping.
