Keep it Simple

Having a couple "fall back" meals that you put together without having to think about is very important. This is a really simple 1 block breakfast or mid morning snack. No measuring required and comprised of foods that most "Zoner's " will have on hand.
Egg Sandwich- 1 block
1/2 whole wheat English muffin toasted ( 1 block carb)
1 egg cooked to your liking ( 1 block protein)
3 almonds (1 block fat)

I am a muscular female of about 5'3". I have a lot of muscle but nothing is defined and I'm interesting in losing weight. How many blocks would you recommend for a 10-20# weightloss (overtime)? I don't want to lose energy and I want to be able to continue my performance. Thanks.

I am about the same height and have been at 12 blocks per day for awhile. I would start there and see if you are getting the results you are looking for. If you want to lean down more go to 11 blocks or alternate between 11 blocks one day and 12 the next. At 11 blocks I found I was hungry a lot and my performance suffered. At 12 blocks my energy level has been good and I feel really good. I would tell you to start and 12 due to your muscular build and adjust from there.
