The P90X Three Phases

Any P90X’er will tell you that the best bodies are built in the kitchen. Diet and exercise work together to improve fitness and physical performance. The P90X 3-Phase Nutrition Plan was designed by experts to give you the right amount of calories and nutrients so you can burn stored fat while building lean muscles. You can customize the P90X 3-Phase Nutrition Plan is key to maximizing your results.  Just as P90X isn’t a quick fix or miracle fad the nutrition plan is about choosing the foods you WANT to eat and determining the portions that’ll properly fuel you before, during and after each of your workouts. So let’s break it up for you newbies ha ha ha 

Phase 1:  Fat Shredder

Kicking off your P90X workout and diet program, the high-protein-based foods in this phase are designed to strip fat while strengthening your muscles.

Fat Shredder meals should proportionally be: 50% protein, 30% carbohydrates and 20% fat.

Phase 2:  Energy Booster

EB is a healthy mix of protein and carbohydrates with a reduced amount of protein to maximize endurance and provide more energy for performance (e.g., during Plyometric workouts!).

Meals in this phase are 40% protein, 40% carbohydrates and 20% fat.

Phase 3:  Endurance Maximizer

This phase (optionally) kicks in near the tail end of the program and consists of complex carbs, lean proteins and reduced fat. Its focus is in maximizing the fuel available during the last few weeks of the system, helping your avoid plateaus and get chiselled and toned.

It’s heavier on the carbs but if you’re willing to push your body to the limit, your endurance (& results) WILL improve: 20% protein, 60% carbohydrates and 20% fat.

  1. naturally like your web site but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to inform the truth nevertheless I’ll surely come again again.

  2. You better once, run 30 min. beacuse the first 20 minutes you lose your carbohydrates and after 20 minutes, your body will burn body fat. Rest is also very important for your body. So try to run 3 or 4 times a week. But you also have to have a good healthy diet. a good diet is more important than jogging. If you eat everthing that je want than you wil grow. haha. Eat lots of protein, especially after training and get the daily carbohydrate from fruit, potatoes or rice. than you will lose weight
