I just started P90X on January 6 and have lost 4lbs already since the first Phase is all Fat Shredding (protein and veggies, not a lot of carbs)

I'm totally stoaked about this especially since I've seen results already! I know the weight loss will slow down after a little while, but hey, nothing like weight loss to keep you motivated!

Anyone else doing the P90X thing?? I'd really love to hear any tips, comments or results you've had.

I'm also looking to add people to my buddy list that are following the same kind of regime I am so I can build a support base to make it to the end..

Thanks all! Very Happy

Funnily enough, there's infomercials for P90X on tv usually late at night.

Basically, it's a 90 day regime of fitness and nutrition plans that you follow. You're given 12 different videos that showcase a different workout in each; including kenpo, yoga, weight lifting, cardio etc... it's amazing!! It also works on something called muscle confusion, so that you never peak like you do when working out on the same routine. Usually you reach a plateau, but because the regime is always changing your body is always doing something new!

As for the nutrition guide, it has a set meal plan for every day or you can just follow the guide and make your own meals. I'm coming up to the end of month 1 and the diet was mainly protein and veggies. I will get to eat more carbs in month 2 and 3, but the firt month is the Fat Shredding phase to get your body ready for muscle toning/building in month 2/3.

So far I've lost 9pds and it's only the beginning of week 3. So I'm doing very well!!
