P90X Nutrition Guide and Plan

4 posts in this topic

The P90x nutritional plan is the perfect match for the P90x workout program.

Tony Horton and the Beachbody nutritional crew did an awesome job putting together a diet plan that helps skyrocket your results, while working out. If you want to see astronomical results, the P90x nutritional plan must not be altered.

The guide contains lots of fish, lean chicken, turkey, lean beef, egg whites, and Shakeology. You can choose between a portion controlled diet vs. a well thought out daily menu. Both are very easy to follow! There are 3 approaches for each phase:

Portion Approach – Designed for people who don't have allot of time to prepare meals. If you only have time to prepare 1 or 2 step meals, then this approach is for you.

Meal Plan Approach – This approach is designed for people who like to to prepare nice, tasty meals. Specific meals are given, as well as recipes on how to prepare them.

Quick Option Approach – This approach is designed for people who can't find time to eat, let alone cook. If your someone that's always on the go and just don't cook, then this plan is for you.

The P90x nutritional guide comes in 3 phases:

Phase I: Fat Shredder – Days 1-28 (Can be extended longer if you need to lose more weight) -With this phase, your daily proportions of Protein/Carbohydrates/Fat should be 50% Protein, 30% Carbohydrates, 20% Fat.

Beachbody recommends that you extend this phase if you need to lose more fat. If you're like me and most P90x's, you will probably start out in phase 1, level 1. In phase 1, level 1, Beachbody has recommeded the following daily portions of food:

Level 1 proportions:

Proteins – 5 servings

Dairy – 2 servings

Fruits – 1 servings

Vegetables – 2 servings

Fats – 1 servings

Carbs – 1 servings

Condiments – 1 servings

Snacks – 1 Single servings

P90X Recovery Drink – 1 servings

P90X Protein Bar – 1 servings

If your someone that already fairly in shape and don't need to lose lots of fat, you may start out at level 2:

Level 2 proportions:

Proteins – 7 servings

Dairy – 3 servings

Fruit – 1 servings

Vegetables – 4 servings

Fats – 1 servings

Carbs – 1 servings

Condiments – 2 servings

Snacks – 1 Double

P90X Recovery Drink – 1 servings

P90X Protein Bar – 1 servings

Level 3 proportions:

Proteins – 9 servings

Dairy – 4 servings

Fruit – 2 servings

Vegetables – 4 servings

Fats – 1 servings

Carbs – 1 servings

Condiments – 2 servings

Snacks – 2 Doubles

P90X Recovery Drink – 1 servings

P90X Protein Bar – 1 servings

Phase II: Energy Booster – Days 29-56 -With this phase, your daily proportions should be 40% Protein, 40% Carbohydrates, 20% Fat.

During the energy booster phase, you are suppose to decrease your protein intake and increase your carbohydrates. The proportions look like:

Proteins – 4 servings (In phase 1, we had 5 servings of protein, but now it's 4)

Dairy – 2 servings

Fruit – 1 servings

Vegetables – 2 servings

Fats – 1 servings

Carbs – 2 servings(In phase 1, we had 1 serving of carbohydrates, but now it's 2)

Condiments – 1 servings

Snacks – 1 Single serving

Recovery Drink – 1 serving

Protein Bar – 1 servings

Phase III: Endurance Maximizer – Days 57-90 -With this phase, your daily proportions should be 20% Protein, 40% Carbohydrates, 20% Fat Many people opt out of phase 3 because they feel there bodies can't handle 3 carbohydrates per day.

Here are the proportions:

Proteins – 2 servings

Dairy – 1 servings

Fruit – 2 servings

Vegetables – 2 servings

Fats – 1 servings

Carbs – 3 servings

Condiments – 2 servings

Snacks – 2 Singles serving

Recovery Drink – 1 servings

I'm following the guide as close as possible. Within 30 days, I've already lost several inches off my waist.
