I know Coach favors the Zone approach to eating and I've been following it for some time. I really like it seems like a healthy approach. My only reservation is that I find it hard to maintain my weight (not to mention impossible to gain) when I eat my recommended number of Zone blocks. I know the recommendation in this case is to add some fat blocks, but I thought it might be helpful to hear from others who follow the program to see what you're eating. So, here's what I want to hear:

Height, Weight, Calorie intake per day, rough macronutrient breakdown, current training schedule (including any sports training).

Thanks for your help!

Don.

hi Don-
Im 5'9" 167 5% bf. I do the WOD and 2-4 capoeira sessions/week. Perhaps twice/week 1hr of kickboxing or grappling. I follow the natural Hormonal Enhancement eating scheme (low carb 3 days and then two carb load meals). I get 160-225g protein, 250-300g fat and the carbs really vary depending upon whether it is low or higher carb. Total energy intake is 3200-4000. The Coach and Lauren recomended trying a bit lower calorie intake so I am giving that a try. If you follow the zone guidelines and increase fat such that performance iss good but bodyfat does not increase.
Hope this helps!
Robb
