A quick question.
I just wonder what is best, fry in oil or butter and if I should add this butter/oil to total fatblocks for that meal?

If you’re doing zone blocks, yes it counts. As for butter or oil, th zone typically limits portions though I would chooses the better fats to cook with, with olive oil being near the top of the list.

There’s a reason they don’t call it “Fight Gone Good”.
Yes I do Zone blocks.
I just asked because many recipes say like “Sauté onions, mushrooms in olive oil” and in the recipe it is 1 cup onions and 3 cups mushrooms and 1/3 tsp (=1,6ml) olive oil, that amount of oil is barely enough to make the pan wet :D
I’m not sure how someone is supposed to suate the onions and mushrooms in only 1/3 tsp of olive oil, but that’s not germane.
The 1/3 tsp of olive oil is 1 block of fat. So although it is not much in volume it is 1 block of fat and if you’re Zoning then you need to count it.
I’d suggest an oil such as olive oil for cooking: it’s one of the healthiest for frying
