EVENTS in March:
– The city of Pleasant Hill has put our issue on hold for now (click here for details)
– March 14 is Diablo CrossFit’s next Royal Rumble! 11:00am, teams of 4. It is Free, but you must pre-register at firstname.lastname@example.org! This includes Diablo CrossFitters. So we know how many people are coming (more details on our events page). We also need volunteers to help run the event (‘helpers’ will be paid in food and beer), please email if you are interested.
– We have not had many people sign up for the California Climb event on March 28th. If you can’t make it, please donate to one of our esteemed members who has decided to climb 52 stories of the ‘Bank of America Building’ to raise money for lung cancer research! Click here for the team page
Don’t forget that people who make it to the top of the building get to enjoy free massages, food and drinks at the Carnelian Room Restaurant. So if you are interested please sign up right away!
Event details (like start times, how to get guest passes to the Carnelian Room, age group categories, and how to win team trophies) can be found here. I think we have a shot at ‘fastest team’ if we get enough people to go!
“. . .Although both plans were equal in calories, half the group followed a moderate-protein diet (40% carbohydrates, 30% protein, 30% fat) while the other followed a diet based on USDA’s food-guide pyramid (55% carbohydrates, 15% protein, 15% fat). . .
. . .Although the amount of weight lost in both groups was similar, at 4 months participants in the protein group had lost 22 percent more body fat than members of the food-pyramid group. At 12 months, the moderate-protein dieters had lost 38 percent more body fat.
“The additional protein helped dieters preserve muscle. That’s important for long-term weight loss because muscle burns caloriesâ€”if you lose muscle, and you used to be able to consume 2,000 calories without gaining weight, you’ll find that now you can only eat, say, 1,800 calories without weight gain,” he said. . .
. . .The protein diet was easier to follow and maintain long-term, with 64 percent of the moderate-protein dieters completing the study compared to 45 percent of dieters using the high-carbohydrate diet, Layman said.
“Subjects on the moderate-protein diet reported that they weren’t as interested in snacks or desserts, and they didn’t have food cravings. When you eat protein, you feel full longer,” he said. . .”
Do you eat a diet of more than 40% protein? (i.e. the “Zone”) Post thoughts to comments.
