Today's post is a resource for understanding the "block" system of measuring food.The quantity of macro nutrients that we eat directly effects our hormones. The zone is a way of balancing your proteins, carbohydrate, and fats and in turn your hormones.
FIND YOUR BLOCK PRESCRIPTION HERE People who are using CrossFit as their sole fitness regimin get to enter a 0-3 for activity level because of the short durattion of our workouts. If you do other activities or sports you may go as high as 5. None of us are 7's (think "tour de farance").
Each member of the gym will have different block prescription, just like each of you have different modifications for the workout. It takes precision in the measurements to get a correct prescription.
"All you have to do is keep the balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fats in a 1:1:1 balance eat every meal and snack. You have an infinite number of choices, all based on foods you like to eat and, therefore, will eat....For starters, just remember this little rhyme which says: Protein moves around, and carbohydrate grow in the ground" - Barry Sears
