Re: JC's Crossfit & Zone Log
 
We'll being winter time I was thinking of switching to hybrid and worrying about my weight a few months down the road. If you dont mind helping me out, that would be awesome. If it would be easier I have aim and msn if you would rather do it on there.

aim: compora13
msn: [email]james19_13@hotmail.com[/email]

If not right here or a PM is just fine. Thanks

After sitting down and trying to find out what to do about always being hungry on the zone i discovered i was only having around 1200 calories a day, which is way way way low for someone my size, im stepping up to 19 blocks a day to get close to 1500. Hopefully this will help with my binging and hunger levels through the day

Damn dude! 1500 is still low as **** if you ask me. I guess it depends on your goals... :shrug:

19 Blocks is a decent amount of food. 1500 justs seems low to me.

I did Zone for a minute. But I think it was too many carbs for me. I don't consider the Zone a "low carb" diet, I actually think it airs on the high side.

I still follow Zone parameters as in eating some protein, fat, and carbs at every meal and snack. But now I eat a high protein, high fat, lower carb diet and that seems to be working.

So I eat more protein and fat than the zone calls for and less carbs. I don't avoid carbs like the plague or anything (except grains, pastas, etc...) but I just don't eat a lot. If I were to eat a 5 Block meal it would be more like 5-7 blocks of protein, 10-20 blocks fat, and maybe 2-4 blocks carbs.

Basically I didn't like having to force carbs down. I do pretty strict paleo so getting all your carbs is kinda hard. You know how many ****ing vegetables you have to eat to meet your zone requirements???

Just sayin'...

God i know what you're saying, thats another main reason why i hate the zone so much, every meal i have to have what seems like a unglody amount of carbs, where i would rather be eating a **** load of chicken lol

Re: JC's Crossfit & Zone Log
 
Ok i was actually way off on those numbers, for some reason it didnt hit me that there are hidden calories in each block lol, i guess i was eating ~2000 or so calories. Still not sure if i want to follow the zone according to all the carbs it wants me to eat

2000 sounds more like it...

Just experiment with it. Try strict zoning, it might work wonders for you. Or it might just suck, never know.

See how you feel and then play around with the ratios. I generally suggest higher fat, especially if you're active and kicking ***. You might be carb sensitive and need to lower the carbs a bit, or you might be a carb machine and can handle a ****load of them. I'd recommend sticking to mainly Paleo if you can handle it.

Play around with that and your hybrid. You'll come up with something very nice. :stir:

Going to try strict zone for about a month around 18 or 19 blocks a day, if i dont like it im going to modify the diet to fit my needs a bit better. Today was a 12 hour day of class so it was my off day.
