I am 6'3", about 170lbs (last weigh-in 2 months ago). I eat 20 blocks a day, and double the fat, though I have sometimes gone with 3x the fat. ...Said someone on this board once upon a time.

For what purpose would one increase the fat so much? I know you need fat to lose fat. Catchy but vague. Just a little more info to clarify would help.

I got this from a search, and searching for fat and the zone is a little overwhelming.

Fat is a caloric ballast that is hormonally neutral.
You can add fat to meet your activity need without spiking insulin or going over your protien requirements.
