    The Zone Diet and steroids
    For those who are familiar with Dr. Sears' Zone Diet, have any of you used this eating plan during a cycle? I currently have seen great results eating this way since March. I have become much leaner and my strength has definitely improved as well as my physical performance in workouts like 10 minutes of kettlebell snatches or 2000 meter rows.

    That being said, I currently stick to 15 Blocks a day with about 2x or 3x the Fat Blocks depending on how I'm feeling. My question is if I plan on running a simple test E 500mg/wk cycle should I increase my blocks to say 20 a week? Of course, I know that when on a cycle the common belief is "eat everything in sight and try to keep it clean." But the results I have achieved in such a short time by following the Zone Diet with no supplements of any kind are too great to ignore.

    Again, I'll restate my main questions:

    Has anyone used the Zone Diet while on a cycle and how did you adjust your block intake?

    I will most likely begin by increasing my blocks to 18 a week and adjust from there but anyone's experience would be great to hear.

    Thank you!

    Nothing wrong with the Zone. Great diet if you can stick to it.

    Just like any other way of eating.. If you add a little sauce then just up the calories a little or in this case a block or two.

    Judge from there.

    The Zone Diet and steroids
    The principle of the Zone Diet is based on metabolism. It is based on the meat-based diet patterns that were followed by our ancestors nearly 100,000 years ago.

    Famous celebrities like Madonna, Jennifer Aniston, and Demi Moore have had promising results from following the principles of the Zone Diet, developed by Barry Sears. The Zone Diet is based on a proportion of 40% carbohydrates, 30% proteins, and 30% fats, and is commonly known as the 40-30-30 plan.

    The change in the food pattern

    Due to advancing technology in the food industry we tend to consume more carbohydrates in our every day diet. This affects the metabolism ability to burn fats.

    Higher consumption of grain and starch foods like rice, bread crumbs, pasta, potatoes, and fast foods leads to weight gain. The Zone Diet insists that the individual focus on the diet pattern of early man, which was balanced between meat, fruit, and vegetables.

    The ideal ratio

    The Zone Diet recommends the ratio of carbohydrates, proteins and fats to control the levels of insulin in the blood stream. Excess insulin may lead to the storage of fat in the body and can cause problems like obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. Maintaining proper ********* function is completely possible with the Zone Diet.

    The carbs

    Avoid carbs from grains, pastas, and starches. Instead consume carbs from fruits and vegetables. Monounsaturated fats can be obtained from olive oil, almonds, and avocados. The Zone Diet considers food to be essential to overall health, weight loss and the prevention of heart disease and diabetes.

    Pros and Cons of the Zone Diet

    One sector of experts argues for the principles of the Zone Diet while others believe that it consists of a flawless ratio.

    AHA indicates that the Zone Diet is not a long term weight loss program and restricts the consumption of essential vitamins and minerals. The higher than normal proportion of proteins will not balance the health of the body. While some have had remarkable results while practicing the Zone Diet, is has not been clinically proven.

    Hey there, Shaman1260,

    How are you doing? Still on the Zone?

    I'm really interested in the muscle building results of the Zone diet. Could you share your lbm and activity level according to the Zone, and your improvements over time. Preferably w/ and w/o your cycle(s).

    I've never taken steroids and I'm not planning to, but your Zone experience intrigues me.

    Thanks!
