Building a meal plan is very simple.
First work out how much you should eat by reading the Zone Meals & Blocks Article from CrossFit.com. Use the table to determine what size human you are to find out how many blocks you should be eating a day.
Let’s use the example of a Large Adult Male who based on the table, should be eating 19 blocks. We can break this into 3 large 5 block meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and two small 2 block snacks (afternoon tea and post-training).
Then it is just a matter of picking what you want to eat for the day based on the meals we have provided. For example, a healthy (and delicious) meal plan for the day may look like …
Afternoon Snack – 2 Block Yogurt, Berries & Nut Snack
Post-Training – 2 Block Banana and Strawberry Smoothie
Dinner – 5 Block Salmon & Vegetables
The way you plan out the meals and what you choose is totally up to you as long as you don’t exceed 5 blocks in any one meal, and have at least 2-3 hours between meals.
