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.
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.
One of the things I’ve been doing recently is making comics. Every once in a while, I’ll make a recording and convert it into a timelapse, as I’ve done here, enjoy! You can view the full comic here, and you can get new comics on Instagram, if that’s your 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.
