Now Available: Zone Diet - Blocks Lookup Tool (initial release)

Announcing the immediate availability of a new Zone Diet - Blocks lookup tool.

I’ve been eating with the Zone Diet” for about a year and a half now. I really enjoy it and it works for me. I’m going to assume for the rest of this post that you know about the Zone Diet”, if not - you can read more about it here.

ZDP Version 1.0

I’ve created a simple web application utilizing React and Bootstrap to make a quick and easy to use, mobile-friendly lookup table for Zone Blocks. Every row is the amount that makes up one block of each category (fat, carb, protein).

Most foods are available as a weight in grams as well as an eyeball” amount (either cups, ounces, or count).

Consider this a first version and I’ll add to it to make it easier to use as I use it more.

Check it out here.

New Gamejam Game: Hey You! Let’s Sword Fight!

This past weekend, I participated in 1 Class Jam.

Rather than a themed jam, this jam was a coding challenge. The objective: To create a game in a single class / structure, no subobjects. You can see my code on github.

The game I created was a simple turn-based card fighting game. I like the idea, although the execution (with the time limits of the jam) could use a little more balance and polish. I may continue on with this idea in the future.
