I don't speak zone.....if you are going for the glycogen load pwo then you want a majority of carb/protein and some (not a little fat). You will get enough fat in during all the other times and days. Shouldn't have to worry about counting calories pwo....that should just be a feeding frenzy (or real foods of course). You can spread out the calories over 3-4 hours if you want to. Also important is amount of protein on the non-feeding frenzy days, as it should be higher while your overall calorie intake is a bit lower.

Are you IF'n on workout or non-workout eating days? You don't need 6x a day...you can get plenty of calories in on 3x a day. You won't waste away or lose muscle like the BB magazines try and tell you esp if you are eating whole food proteins that may take 4 hours or more to digest. If you take protein shakes, that stuff is in and out quickly....hence why you would need that every 2 hours. Stick to more whole foods for protein sources, if you want to use protein powder it should be used WITH meals of whole food protein and just a quick way to bump up overall protein intake.

[quote=Mike ODonnell;38400]I don't speak zoneQUOTE]

Sorry the post on the other on single meal IF thread describes the meal better but basicaly a single meal eating window after a Long fast and heavy lift day. The meal I was thinking of would consist of about 160g Protein, 160g Fat and 160g Carbs of variouse types.

I don't know... It just was a thought and honestly sounded fun I just didn't know if I would be wasting the nutrition or if my body could possibly use it. I just use block talk from my pure zone days and it feels easier for some reason when actualy just putting the grams out there is way more direct.

I was wanting to hear if anybody used a 1 meal eating window and what there reasons or experiences were.

A different question.....

Does taking creatine mono count as breaking a fast?
