This is why I don't like the zone...people get too obsessed with numbers and blocks.

Protein+ComplexCarbs - post workout 1-2 hours (only on glycolitic training days, not ME)
Protein+Fruit - AM or preworkout if you feel bonked
Protein+Fat+Veggies - All other meals

Add in a carb up day if you feel you need it once a week. Go by how you feel, perform, and body composition....throw out all the other formulas. Spend that free time smelling some roses or taking a nice walk outside...that relaxation alone will lead to more muscle because your zone obsession is probably overstressing your system and cortisol levels.
