The P90X nutrition guide is not necessarily a diet, but rather a nutrition program designed around the P90X workouts. A diet is something you attempt that usually restricts your calories in order for you to lose a certain amount of weight in a certain amount of time. The P90X nutrition guide is specifically designed to get you through your workouts and provide you with enough energy to complete the program and achieve the results. Tony Horton provides not only menus but also grocery lists and recipes as well. There are 2 ways to follow the program. One is the portion plan where the amount or serving size of each meal is important. The other is the meal plan which uses menus to help you prepare you meals. Its set up in 3 stages that correspond with the stages of the P90X workout program so that while your body is transforming so is your metabolism.
Following the P90X nutrition plan is just as vital to your overall success as any of the extreme workouts in this program. Specifically designed to work in tandem with the P90X workout routines, this three-phase eating plan recommends the perfect combination of foods to satisfy your body's energy needs every step of the way. P90X is not about quick fixes or miracle diets. It's about selecting the healthy foods that you want to eat, and determining the portion amounts that will provide your body with the right amount of fuel to excel during exercise. The P90X nutrition plan offers three phases. Phase 1 is the Fat Shredder, a high-protein-based diet designed to help you strengthen your muscles while simultaneously and rapidly shedding fat from your body. Phase 2 is the Energy Booster, a balanced mix of carbohydrates and proteins with a lower amount of fat to achieve additional energy for performance. And Phase 3 is the Endurance Maximizer, an athletic diet of complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, and lower fat, with the emphasis on more carbohydrates. You'll need this combination of foods as fuel to get the most out of your final few weeks and truly be in the best shape of your life.

The P90X Nutrition Plan "Fat Shredder" phase got me to 17 percent body fatwithin the elite athlete range for women. And I'm 48 years old now. I'm never hungry and enjoy a flexible menu.
