What is Zone Blocks?

Zone diet emphasizes on zone blocks while talking about preparing meals. The amount of carbohydrates, protein, and fat in each diet block has been standardized. Your required daily diet blocks depends on your individual weight, height, and waist and hip circumferences. On an average, a man and a woman should have 14 and 11 zone food blocks per day respectively.


The Zone block method is a precise way of choosing the right portion of food. Each Zone block consists of one mini block of carbohydrates, protein and fat each . Each mini block has a precise weight, but they don't weigh the same. For protein, a mini block (1P) is 7g while for carbohydrates (1C) it is 9g. For fat, each mini block (1F) only weigh 1.5g. Together they form 1 zone block in a 40:30:30 ratio.

In summary, we get this:

1P = 7 g of protein

1C = 9 g of carbohydrates

1F = 1.5 g of fat

1 Zone block = 1C+ 1P+ 1F

This example demonstrates how Zone blocks look like:

1 oz of skinless chicken breast (1P),  3 apricots (1C), 3 olives (1F)

If you need to take 4 Zone blocks for a particular meal, that means you have to take 4P (4oz of skinless chicken breast), 4C (12 apricots) and 4F(12 olives).
