Searching the board tells me these things have been identified as indicators of needing to add fat blocks to a Zone diet: general fatigue, poor workout peformance, and perpetual, gnawing hunger.

What about being devastated post-workout? My energy during the day is good, my workout performance is in line with what it has been, and I am not hungry during the day. But metabolically demanding WODs have been DESTROYING me as of late. Tabata Something Else this morning had me fighting back Pukie for 40 minutes before I could even get up to take a shower. I couldn't eat until nearly 2 hours after the workout. Now, 5 and half hours later, I am still jittery.

I am hypothesizing that I need to up the fat. So I'm increasing my fat multiplier by 1x and will see if I start to recover any better. But maybe this is the standard "Mess You Up" of Crossfit, though I tend to doubt it because I have been doing this for awhile and this is new.

Does anyone have any other indicators of needing to up fat intake? Or thoughts on my situation?

Maybe you're overtraining. When was the last time you took a little bit of time off?

New Years since I've had time off.

Usually when I feel overtrained I have a hard time getting motivated for workouts. No problem there. Pre-workout I am really pumped for the workout. It is post-workout when I bonk.

I feel like the higher fat intake during the day today helped out as the day went by. Will keep this thread posted as to my results of how I feel after my next metabolically intense WOD.

Chris, definitely keep me updated. I feel like I do a lot better with higher fat diets. I'm pretty liberal with the olive oil and can still remain at a constant weight.
