(whoops, clearly that should say "too much")

Hey,

Just curious. If/when you realize you ate an unbalanced amount of a macronutrient are you more likely to:
a.) balance it out by eating an appropriate amount of the other macros (even though it exceeds your block allotment for that meal)
b.) forget about it and continue on with your day
c.) do a chipper right away until Pukie visits you so you can start all over

Came to mind after realizing I ate 6 blocks of tuna instead of 4 and I'm feeling kind of sluggish because of it.

Brendan

If you're doing the Zone it is usually recommended that you move on and simply make sure your next meal is Zone friendly.

One thing I've always wondered about the Zone is the time window to eat all of a "meal" and/or to correct deficiencies in block calculations.

Is this covered in any of the books?

I'm with Kevin, followed by a few "zone" beers.

The Zone definitely recommends just moving on to the next meal. The extra food will already cause an insulin boost to deal with it and more food will only prolong and/or heighten the insulin peak.

Dan,

You are on a roll man!

Salmon fish and chip - chips + salad + 4 beers and a tablespoon of almonds. Best 4 block meal I have had in a long time.

Dr. Sears you are a genius!

Garrett, from what I've seen, none of the books deal with exact time-frames for hormonal response. I always try to stay within what I would consider a "reasonable" meal window, which is 5-10 minutes between macros, if I have to split them up as such. Usually I try to consume them interleaved, you might say, to avoid the issue altogether.

I was wondering about that too. Also, is it important that I eat my "late afternoon snack" before supper? It's understandably disconcerting to my wife when she's cooking supper and I start preparing a snack.

Here's another: how long before bed do you eat your late night snack? I've read many opinions that say it is important not to eat anything 2-3 hours before bed. Lately I've felt that the late night snacking seems to disrupt my sleep. What works for you?

Brendan,
I personally don't eat a late-night snack. That being said, I'm typically eating a big dinner (7-8 blocks or more) anywhere between 7-10 pm.

If I was trying to gain muscle, I'd add a late night snack.

As for the snack, if it is balanced, I don't see why you or your wife would be concerned unless you weren't able to complete your dinner.
