“Do not wait for extraordinary circumstances to do good action; try to use ordinary situations.”
-Jean Paul Richter
A few days ago, I posted information about the “Zone Diet”. The “diet” or nutritional plan that moderates your insulin production by moderating your carbohydrate intakes, which in turn has showed measurable, repeatable, observable health and fitness gains for a wide range of the population. Here’s a summary of the Zone Rules:
“Balance the hormonal response to food.”
-Eat within 1 hour of waking up!
-When you eat, eat all 3 groups (Carbohydrates, proteins, and fat) at the same time.
-Never exceed 5 blocks in 1 meal.
-DO NOT go 5 hours without eating/food! (Your body goes into starvation mode and your metabolism slows down.)
-5 or 6 meals a day (3 main meals and 2 or 3 snacks) seems to be the most convenient to follow!
After the first 2-3 weeks of REAL CROSSFITTING ZONING, which includes WAM-ing (weighing and measuring) as well as NO CHEATING, you have a choice to continue the NO CHEATING regiment or you can do one of 2 continuing plans: Strict Zoning or Real World Zoning. Strict Zoning is still considered 100% zoning, however you are allowed either a 24 hour cheat period once a week or 3 cheat meals throughout the week. Yes, you can cheat… you can eat whatever you want, drink whatever you want for that day or meal! Whatever you want! The other plan, Real World Zoning, is considered 80% zoning and allows you to have 2 cheat days (i.e. zoning everyday of the week, except for the weekends), or 6 cheat meals (i.e. zone on every meal throughout the week except for dinner). Again, during the cheat periods, you can eat/drink whatever you want! See, its not so bad! Just get through that first couple of weeks, without cheating and then you can do Strict or Real World Zoning! You can do it! Go ZONE!
Get your CrossFit on!
