P90X3 Nutrition, Diet, and Meal Plan
P90x truly understands the correlation between a balanced diet and exercise. This is why the program is so successful and people see results. Tony Horton (creator of P90x) doesn’t shy away or hide the fact that the majority of your success with P90x, P90x2, and P90x3 starts in the kitchen.
The P90X Nutrition Guide will be similar to the P90X and P90X2 nutrition guide. Low Carb, Low Fat, High Protein and vegatables.
They are focusing more on Vegan diets for those folks who are Vegan. They are really expanding who they reach.
If you haven’t read my P90X3 Review I recommend you check it out to see what all the new program has to offer.
The original P90X workout program came with an extensive highly detailed and helpful diet guide with 3 phases to go through.
Phase 1 – Fat Shredder
The first phase starts with higher protein which helps to shed fat quickly and strengthening your body muscles.
Phase 2 – Energy Booster
This phase is designed with a nice mix of carbs, protein, and low amounts of fat. You will definitely need this combination for the extra energy boost to take you workouts to the next level.
Phase 3 – Endurance Maximizer
Get ready to get your athlete on. In this phase P90x’s Diet plan is focused around complex carbs and lean protein.
There is A LOT of information in the nutrition guide so don’t get overwhelmed. Just take it little by little. It’s important that you understand what you’re going to be eating and how it affects your body.
In all phases eating often small meals and consuming lots of water are highly emphasized. Participants are given two options for each phase: follow the meal plan or the portion plan. Now Tony Horton has mentioned that P90X3 will not really focus on the portion side of things. So we will see what they have up their sleeves.
Prior to starting the meal plan you are asked to calculate your recommended calorie intake. This is based on your activity level and resting metabolic rate.
Lean meat, eggs, low fat milk and cheese, fresh fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, flax seeds, wholegrain bread and pasta, dried fruit, soy nuts, protein bars, mustard, salsa, and fat free salad dressing.
