Dr. Barry Sears - Intro


Matt Chan - Relation to Crossfit Athletes



Here are some keys to the Zone Diet. Remember, this diet is a baseline and variations of this come with time and experiment. Each body is different, and require different percentages of protien, carbs and fats.
1 Block = 7g Protien, 9g Carbs, 1.5g Fat
Caculate your level:
    » Current Weight: BW
    » Find your current Body Fat%: BF
    » Find Lean Muscle Mass: (BW X BF)/100 = Lean Mass = LM
    » Define your activity level: AL
         1 Workout/Day = .7
         2 Workouts/Day = .8
         3 Workouts/Day = .9
         4+ Workouts/Day = 1
    » Plug in the formula: ( LM X AL)/7 = # Blocks/Day
Workout Recovery:
    » Protien: .2g - .4g/kg of BW (approx 3 Blocks)
    » Carb: .4g - .8g/kg of BW (approx 4 Blocks)
        Best to take within 30 min post Workout in liquid form
Reccommended Supplements:
    » Fish Oil: 10g/Day of EPA/DHA
    » Vitiman C: 1000mg - 2000mg/Day
    » Vitiman D: 5000IU/Day (unless 40% body exposure for 20 min/Day)
    » Creatine: 2.5g Pre/Post (read Label) with 1 month Cycles to increase strength
Other Notes:
    » Eat meals 1-2 hours before workout to level insulin
