Follow these instructions if your ZOE kit contains 1 blood test. If your kit contains more than 1 blood test, follow these instructions instead.

Please note:

The order and timing of your tasks today is 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 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 final 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 in 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 in your ZOE booklet and make sure to wash your hands with hot water and soap.

7. Start testing your own meals and snacks

Use the app to log your meals and any drinks using these step-by-step instructions. Now’s the time to start enjoying all your favorite foods so you can get results for them and understand how they affect your body.

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. You don’t need to mail it immediately but the sooner we get your sample the sooner we can give you your results.

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 eight hours before you eat your muffins tomorrow morning, you shouldn’t eat or drink anything other than plain still water. For example, if you plan to eat your breakfast muffins at 8am, you should not eat anything after 12am.
