In our final of the 5-part Nutrition series, we look at Zone. Zone is the official nutrition plan taught at the Level-1 seminars by CrossFit.
In a nutshell, Zone applies our rules of macros into a very codified system of weighing and measuring. It takes the guesswork out of understanding macros and, after a bit of practice, you can begin to eyeball an appropriately proportioned meal.
Here’s what we’re looking at for Zone “blocks”
- 1 Protein block = 7g
- 1 Carb block = 9g
- 1 Fat block = 1.5g
For some sample meals and foods, we recommend you check out this list.
