I have started the zone diet as of today. I've finally mucked about with meals and stuff I will eat, and I want to catalog what happens. My motivation for doing this is simply to push my crossfitting further. If I can recover sooner, and have more energy, then so much the better.
am weigh-in: 179lbs
Breakfast 5 blocks:
2 eggs, 2 oz cheese, 1 oz ham,
two corn tortillas, an apple, half cup grapes.
This was really pretty good. I think I may sub out a cup of tomatoes for the grapes, or figure out a salsa sub, but really very good.
Lunch 5 blocks:
Smoothie: 2 cups milk, 3 tbls protein powder, 2 cups frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, and scoop of cashews.
Snack: 1/2 cup grapes, 3 cashews, and a moo stick (string cheese).
Dinner same as breakfast, but with a cup of tomatoes as one block and one apple as the roundout carbs.
Snack 4 oz wine, moo stick, 3 cashews.
And the wine was goooooood. It was a present from the sister who has an in with the winery. If you like a good red wine, it's the Lolonis, 2005 Orpheus Petit Syrah,. I spilled some getting my awesome 4oz and in the dim light of the kitchen it looked dark as blood on the counter.
