Re: Am I in "The Zone" Korny I know!

Just to add

Protein is required is that is calculated in the formula when you divide by 7, that is the required protein to support your LBM.

As for carbs some people work better with less, other work better with more. According to Robb Wolf, most people he has seen work better with half the carbs the zone recommends.

So if you are using 20 blocks, it would be 20 blocks P, 10 carbs,

You add 3 blocks of fat for everyone one block of carbs you remove, so you would add 30 blocks of fat. Ontop of your already 20 blocks of fat.

So it would look like

20Pro,10 carbs, 50 fat.

Adding in the 3 blocks of fat to replace 1 block of carbs keeps the calorie intake about the same.
