Hey all! I'm new to the performance menu forum. I'm so glad I found it. This is great stuff and reading everyones experiences is very helpful.
However, in starting the zone I have become frustrated
and could really use some advice.
I'm hungry all the time. I do not feel satisfied for any meal for more than 2 hours.
Here's some background info
31 yo M 6'2"
200 lbs at 10% BF (estimated with wrist/waist measurements)
suppose to be on 21 blocks
follow the WOD on the mainsite and will sometimes throw in an extra workout later in the day (yoga, another wod, specific skills or lifting, firefighter training)
I've stuck to strick WAM. I've kept a food journal for my entire experience.
I DL'ed 42 ways to skin the zone and tried decreasing one C block per meal and upping the F block x3. This seems to be helping my mental focus a bit but I'm still hungry all the time.
I've tried upping my fat to x2 daily requirements and this doesn't seem to help satisfy at all.
Has anyone fought this battle and do you have any suggestions? I feel good about what I'm eating. I have dropped 2%BF since starting. My performance does not seem to be overall affected neg or pos. I want to continue but I also want to feel satisfied by my meals.
Thank you very much!
