I confirm your maths is 100% correct
Your assumtion of 1gm per pound LBM is reasonable but as an alternitive you could use .9 giving you 25 blocks. it really depend what result you are seeking.
at 20% BF if this is dropping IMO stay on 27 blocks but if it is not dropping and you want to force it to drop, move to the 25 blocks.
As for meals you should eat more frequently. 3 * 5 blocks will not be enough. IMO you should go for something like 3,5,3.5,3,5,3
also 6 block meals are not out of the question with your LBM
I've been doing the zone and want to make sure that my math is right, I have lost weight but like I said I want to be certain I'm consuming the right number of blocks/day.
I'm 6' 2" weigh 240 #s, Lean Body mass of 191 #s
The question comes in calculating the protein requirement. I exercise doing Crossfit 5-6/week. Workouts are comprised of weights and other bodyweight functional strength type exercises as well as traditional cardio via rowing and running. The workouts are done with very little rest between exercises. So, I'm assuming that my protein requirement should be 1gm/# of lean body weight.
If my assumption is correct, I would need 27 blocks of protein a day to maintain the LBM, is that right? If so with all my meals at 5 blocks, I'd still be under for protein wouldn't I?
Like I said I have lost 7 pounds so far so I'm moving in the right direction I just want to be as precise about this as possible. Thanks in advance for any help.[/quote:7c8b1f6355]
