Progenex integration into a Zone diet

Hey guys, I've been Crossfitting for a year and a bit and I'm on a Zoneish diet. When I say Zoneish, I mean that I follow the Zone diet but I eyeball everything (I was strict Zone for six months and crashed really hard so I had to bump up my calories). I just started to integrated Progenex (dropping one fat/protein/carb block snack in place for an after WOD Recovery shake) into my diet and I've started to gain weight like crazy. Has anyone else integrated Progenex into a Zone diet, if so how did you do it? And what were your results?

Trevor, what kind of weight gain? Good or bad? How has it affected your performance?

Re: Progenex integration into a Zone diet

I follow the paleo diet myself as much as possible while watching my portions. When I started on progenex I did not notice any weight gain. I may have lost a pound or two.
Not sure if this helps or not just adding my 2 cents in.

Re: Progenex integration into a Zone diet

About 10lbs, I've noticed my lifts have spiked up. I've been PR'ing everything that I put my hands on, but I feel very slow. I find myself gasping for air when I would of been able to motor through a month ago...

Re: Progenex integration into a Zone diet

Lol, protein powder, ANY protein powder, is not going to cause any normally nourished, healthy individual to gain weight like crazy. Come on....

If you are telling the truth and not just here to shill the product, then there is something else you have done to gain the weight. If you have gained 10 lbs and now have stamina issues you should probably see your doctor as you may be holding water due to a health issue.

Re: Progenex integration into a Zone diet

You gained 10 pounds over what time frame?

Suddenly gaining weight and getting stronger suggests that you were in a severe calorie (or protein) deficit before, and are only just now giving your body adequate resources.

Being slower at metcons is a normal side effect of weight gain. On the other hand, it's also a side effect of overtraining.

Re: Progenex integration into a Zone diet

Only the truth here frendo, I weighed 165lbs in August and now I'm walking around at 175lbs. I did start to increase my fat intake just a little and started having progenex (37gm with water) after a WOD. That was the only thing that I changed. I just want to know wtf is up and if my block count is out of whack?

Re: Progenex integration into a Zone diet

How tall are you and what are some of your lift and metcon numbers?

You're not suddenly going to lose your conditioning by "walking around" at 175lbs.
