I was aware of the nitrogen sparing effect of a high fat diet. I was just pointing out that the Zone is a good example of a calorically restrictive diet being detrimental to muscle maintenance/gain and in turn performance unless the fat is bumped up.
I'm intrigued by the 800 calorie/day subjects. I wouldn't want to do that and that much protein with little else may not be the best idea for any serious length of time... but still, I'm intrigued.
And if you don't think kettleball squat cleans are difficult, I say, step up to the med-ball
