Zone - 2 weeks is up!

So 2 weeks in.

I have been on 4 blocks but have reduced Carbs to half/three quarters as the amount of food was killing me. I've been flirting with 2x fat but this hasn't been a consistent thing.

I have lost about 4lbs taking me to 154lbs - I was pretty lean before but I frequently feel very thin now.

WOD times haven't changed but I am feeling more tired. I think the fat blocks need to be increased - not sure by how much - is it a case of 3x for a week, see how it goes, then up it again if it's needed.

Do others find the increase in fat blocks mean an increase in body mass/increase in body fat?

Thanks for any comments

Re: Zone - 2 weeks is up!

how tall are you

if you reduced the carbs you are supposed to add in extra fat blocks to make up the calories.

go 2x fat for a week, then 3x etc. until you start getting too soft.

I'm 5' 8 and of a small medium build.

The comment about cutting carbs but adding fat blocks - I wasn't sure whether that was in addition to the increased fat blocks for athletes.

Re: Zone - 2 weeks is up!

no well, cutting a carb block and replacing with fat does not change the calories at all, just the macronutrient split. So if you do this, you will still probably continue to lose weight.

going 2-3x fat gives you a few hundred extra calories per day, so you can stop losing weight and (hopefully) start increasing strength.
