Have you gone here:
That gives you a starter list of foods and how they break down.
Certain things like almonds are both fat and protein, but are considered fats for Zone purposes. I know there’s a reason, but I can’t recall now. It’s somewhere here in this list of topics, but I can’t remember which one…
It gets hard when you try and zone with things like spaghetti-Os….
Yes, I’ve read that. I actually have it printed out for reference.
What about like a protein bar? Or a lara bar? Those contain some of all three.
Ah, the spaghetti-Os question….
There are some zone books which deal in prepackaged foods.
Otherwise it’s like counting calories: you pull out grams of protien, grams of net carbs, and grams of fat. Then you figure out the blocks there in. Some of the zone bars claim a 30/30/40 ratio so you’ll have that already but it doesn’t tell you how many blocks.
It’s much easier to just make things from the list where you know the values than it is to figure out how many blocks in each prepackaged bit of food.
