Re: Domain Name

I would choose your hosting solution first, a lot of those will include a free domain registration.

This is quality. I was trying to think of one for FGB but I couldn't put my finger on it.

Re: Chuck Norris and Crossfit

Last week Chuck Norris scored an infinity on Cindy, just 3 short of his PR.

- No matter how intensely Chuck Norris works out, Pukie is afraid to meet him.

Re: Has anyone ever tried Quinoa?

I had it once and I enjoyed it. It's flavor is really nothing special, by itself it is kinda bland like rice, but I prefer the texture over rice. It is high in protein and contains all the...

Re: How economical can a zone diet be?

I believe Coach Rip replied to this suggestion once: "But you would be *****ing primarily cheese. Are you ready for this?"

Re: Zone This!

The zone books don't count the fat in bacon and eggs, I don't count the fat in bacon and eggs :evilsmile

Re: Is 'paleo' really Paleolithic?

I don't eat paleo, but I thought I'd take a shot at a this one:



Paleo doesn't proscribe all roots, only those that are toxic when eaten raw.

The paleo period began ~2.5 million years ago, and...

Re: Engineering Help: PU Bar w/ this ceiling?

I second the idea of working off the steel beam. I would be concerned that all that kipping might start to pull the bottom 2x4s away from the I-beams.

Re: zone block chart? which one?

Might be some variation in how it is measured. It would be 20 cups with the leafs just tossed into a measuring cup vs. 4 cups with them packed in to reduce air volume. That's just a guess. You...

Re: Activity Factor - Not making sense

The whole point of the zone is to give you lasting energy while still being able to maintain your target body fat percentage. Eating high carb meals is what gives you a short burst followed by a...

Re: Feel really full on the Zone diet...something is wrong

I missed where anyone denigrated carbohydrates as a whole. A lot of the time people posting their diets here get told rightly so that they don't have enough carbs.

Also, the Zone diet has mountains...

I don't know about your earlier posts, but your first post on this thread was condescending and sarcastic, and that was the first post I've ever read by you so it was a bad first impression.

Re: Certs-Cash Cow and Over Hyped.

If I'm not mistaken, you have to buy the affiliation to be allowed to use "CrossFit" on your marketing materials (including business cards).

Re: Activity Factor - Not making sense

Zygmunt, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and respond to some of your assertions.

The Zone is not based on weight but on lean body mass. It is aimed at giving you enough nutrition to maintain...

Re: Feel really full on the Zone diet...something is wrong

Go by the chart and if something isn't on the chart, only count its major macronutrient for blocks. Counting carbs, protein, and fat in everything you eat will drive you insane and leave you with a...

Re: Daily Nutrition Needs

In terms of proportions, your breakfast has 6 protein blocks (too high), ~2 carb blocks (too low), and no fat blocks (fish oil supplements don't count).

The bread (and bananas too) are...

Re: Activity Factor - Not making sense

+1. The program is designed so you will get extra calories here and there that aren't counted in the blocks. Consider a 20 block diet:

F: 20 blocks * 3 g/block * 9 cal/g = 540 cal
P: 20 blocks * 7...

Re: Activity Factor - Not making sense

When I first started zoning my meals seemed big. Now what you listed looks about normal (and I'm only 145 lb). The good food isn't as dense in calories as bread and pasta, so it is probably a...
