Well I calculated my caloric maintenance level and it gave me around 3kcals. Of course I know it's not accurate, I'm guessing it's a good base level... If I go like I have to do according to the zone diet, and eat 1g of proteins per lean body weight, I would only eat around 160g of proteins and that would give me 2100 calories a day. I highly doubt that can be enough to maintain...
