Food Log- Example

I was hoping to get this image bigger, however, it is an example of how simple a food log can be. Create a page to track your protein, carbs, fat and total blocks per meal. That's it! I can not stress enough how much this will help you to keep focused and accountable for your blocks! (if you click on the picture it will enlarge so you can print it out)

Always love the "EAT THIS" posts... so what should a days totals look like? I'm at 16 blocks, would that be 48 total blocks (16P, 16C, 16F)? Not that I adhere to that kind of balance (more like 16-18P, 10-15C, 30-40F)

Murray- If you are at 16 blocks that would be your total for the day. So you chart would look like: 3 blocks breakfast/ 2 block snack/ 3 block lunch/ 2 block snack/ 4 block dinner/ 2 block snack.
Does that make sense?

Michele, I was just confused by the chart. A 3 block meal is 3 blocks of each of the macronutrients. I have been "Skinning the Zone" as Robb Wolf puts it, so my blocks aren't 3 of each (P,C,F) for a 3 block meal. So while my total blocks should be between 16-19, the breakdown is different. I may have 16 blocks of protein, but 12C and 30F. I guess my question is is it still accurate to say I'm at 16 blocks?
