Please note:

The order and timing of your tasks today are very important. You'll need to do each task at the designated times, otherwise we might not be able to give you accurate results. Don’t worry, the ZOE Test app will give you helpful reminders to keep you on track.

Here’s what you need to do today...

1. Wake up and remain fasted; do not exercise

Remain fasted (only plain still water) until you eat your breakfast muffins. Do not exercise this day until after your blood test (2 hours after lunch).

2. Eat your breakfast muffins

You can have plain still water, plain black coffee or tea with them if you want but nothing else. Follow the instructions on the muffin packaging and log them with the app.

Please note

You have to eat the whole muffins, otherwise we might not be able to give you accurate results.

3. Don’t eat, drink or exercise for 4 hours after your breakfast muffins

Besides plain still water, plain black coffee or plain tea. This will help us properly measure how your body responds to the muffins.

4. Eat your lunch muffins exactly 4 hours after breakfast

The fast is over. Treat yourself with another batch of muffins. Again, you can have plain still water, plain black coffee or tea with them. Follow instructions on the muffin packaging and log them with the app.

Please note

You have to eat the whole muffins, otherwise we might not be able to give you accurate results.

5. Don’t eat, drink or exercise for 2 more hours

Besides plain still water, plain black coffee or tea.

6. Do your blood test exactly 2 hours after your lunch muffins

Follow the step-by-step instructions and see some helpful tips in the app first and then the printed blood test booklet. Make sure to wash your hands with hot water and soap before you start; do not use hand sanitizer as this will affect your results.

7. You can eat anything you want after the blood test

8. Mail your blood sample to the lab

Just pop the sample in its prepaid envelope. Make sure the blood test card goes in its blood sample return bag. Please try to mail your sample the same day you've completed it.

9. Take Day 4 muffins out of the freezer this evening

So they're ready for you tomorrow. Just leave them in the refrigerator overnight to defrost.

10. No eating and drinking overnight

For at least eight hours before you eat your muffins tomorrow morning, you shouldn’t eat or drink anything other than plain still water. So if you plan to have your muffins at 8am for example, you should finish eating/drinking no later than midnight.
