It stands to reason that if I'm a 16 block zoner who decides to fast two days per week at 24 hours, then I'd then have to become a 22/23 blocker to make sure I'm getting the same calories/nutrients. Right?
I don't speak zone....but try and not overcomplicate it....eat most of your calories in the post workout window on workout days (well depending on your workouts), and then on your recovery day just make it enjoyable eating....shouldn't have to be forcing the food down although I can eat plenty in one sitting.
