Where does alcohol fit into the Zone? Many people like to enjoy a meal with a glass of wine, or have a beer when they come home at night. Just make sure you are counting that in your daily total of blocks, and that you are balancing that out with protein and fat.
Wine- 4 oz of wine= 1 block carb
Beer- 8oz of beer= 1 block carb
Post thoughts to comments and bottoms up!

My will for waiting til I'm legal age to try wine is tiring.

Sorry to intrude but I was just wanderng around and landed on you lovely blogger. (It made me hungry) Must look for something delightful to eat now.

I might have to come back if you don't mind to see what else you type about.

I am pretty sure that 1 shot is 1 block...but don't quote me on that one!

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one blocking for beers! The only problem I could see with booze as a carb block is that it impedes protein synthesis. Someone please tell me that it takes more than 3 blocks of alcohol for this to occur. Pretty please.
