I am pretty much where I want to be in terms of weight and bf% (F 112lbs 14-16%)
so I don't want to lose any weight/muscle/bf.

I have done my reading at it seems the recommended amount of calories on the zone isn't going to be enough to support my current activity level/job (1200-1300 as oppossed to the 1500 I feel I need)

I guess the question is, do I just increase all of my 'blocks' keeping the same 40/30/30 ratio or should I favour one macronutrient over the other to keep my calorie intake up?

Thoughts on this would be appreciated.

You would increase your fat blocks to maintain weight and bf%.

Thanks Michael, every philosophy has a different theory so I just wanted to make sure I was on the right track with this one.

Sorry if this question has been posted before, I did a quick search but could not find an answer.

no worries. I think if you look at Nicole Carroll's post on Zone you will get the best information. Also Robb Wolf is the other one to check out. Here is a link to a good zone study done by Josh one of our own and Nicole talks about fat intake. http://www.crossfit.com/cgi-bin/disc...1244#POST31244

Kristi, Michael is correct but...there are some hidden calories in the Zone, so you may be getting your 1500 cals. For example, we look at a piece of meat and say this is 3oz of protein (3 blocks). What we don't include is the fact that that 3oz of meat will have some fat in it. The Zone as written works well. Go on your block RX and see how weight is after a week (you may lose some water weight). If you are feeling weak or lose too much weight, add fat blocks until you normalize.
