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. Do not exercise on this day until after completing your blood test.

Here’s what you need to do today...

1. Wake up and remain fasted; do not exercise

Remain fasted (only plain still water, black coffee or plain tea) until you eat your breakfast muffins. Do not exercise until after your blood test (2 hours after lunch).

2. Eat your breakfast muffins

You can have plain still water, 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 or drink for 4 hours after your breakfast muffins

Besides plain still water, black coffee or tea.

4. Eat your lunch muffins exactly 4 hours after your breakfast muffins

The 4 hour fast is over. Treat yourself with another batch of muffins. Again, you can have plain still water, black coffee or plain 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 until after completing your blood test

Besides plain still water, 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.

Please note:
Try to do your blood test on time. Otherwise we might not be able to give you accurate results.

7. You can eat or drink anything you want after the blood test. You are also free to exercise

8. Mail your blood sample to the lab

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