Summary:

Too many people equate healthy eating with restriction and boredom. Eating healthy foods doesn’t mean eating boring foods.There’s no such thing as a diet, only a lifestyle change. When you take on the P90X way of life you you learn that healthy food is delicious food.

Fats and refined carbs don’t actually have that much flavor—it’s how a meal is prepared with spices and sauces that renders it delicious. Think about it: salsa is low-fat and chocked full of antioxidants, but it has infinitely more flavor than a fast-food french fry.

You should be familiar with the macronutrients. Protein, carbs and fats are the three primary nutrients. You’re probably thinking, “There’s no way I should eat carbs and fats if I’m getting ripped with the P90X home workout!” Ah, but the trick is to eat the right carbs and fats—and in the right amounts.

 How To Follow P90X - Nutrition Plan:

Never, ever skip meals or starve yourself. This will only slow down your metabolism anyway. You are going to need plenty of energy for your P90X workouts! Never leave the table hungry, and never leave the table miserably stuffed. Eat until you are full, but not overloaded.

Viktor's top tips

1.Get plenty of lean protein with every meal. Lean sources include fish, poultry, beans and vegetarian alternatives. Protein should be the building block of every meal. It gives you the stamina you need to “bring it” to your P90X workout and make it to the next meal.
2.Eat five to eight fresh fruits and vegetables every day. The P90X philosophy is: Don’t ever hold yourself back from enjoying all the fresh fruits and veggies you want!
3.Enjoy whole-grain carbs. Ditch white breads, bagels, doughnuts, cookies and the like. Tear into a hunk of all-natural whole-grain bread instead with gusto! You don’t have to eat carbs at every meal, but you should have at least one serving of carbs every day. That’s because your brain relies solely on carbs for its energy source. Sure, you’ll be trim if you don’t eat any carbs, but you’ll come across as a ditz! Your protein serving should always be larger than your carb serving to prevent your blood sugar from spiking, then plummeting. The last thing you want is to feel weak and shaky during your P90X workout!
4.Enjoy good fats. Good fats are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated; some sources include avocados, olive oil, fish and nuts. The P90X fitness system recommends fish as the most lean source of protein and as the best source of omega 3 oils. Wild Alaskan salmon is best. Saturated and trans fats are bad; some sources include meat, dairy products and hydrogenated oils.
5.Drink at least six to ten 8oz glasses of water every day. Water flushes away excess fat. That’s a good thing, because you’re going to crave tons of water after your P90X Cardio X, Plyometrics and Kenpo X workouts!
6.Avoid these items at all costs: fast food burgers and fries; hydrogenated oils and high-fructose corn syrup. When you follow the P90X fitness mindset, you don’t even regard them as food. Think of them as poisonous artery-clogging and liver-taxing toxins.

About / History

P90X was released in 2004 and has continued to have great success since it's initial launch. As of this moment P90X has helped over 2 million people get into the absolute best shape they have ever been in, and continues to offer incredible fitness results to those who take on the challenge. How did P90X get started?

It all began with the Power 90, an immensely popular 90 day program that continues to have a huge following. The goal was to create a program for those who wanted more. It was about taking the Power 90 and turning up the flames to create a truly extreme workout program, the Power 90 Extreme, better known as the P90X! Heading it up is fitness extraordinaire Tony Horton of course! Nearly 2 years worth of hard work was poured into the research and development of P90X. With leading fitness experts designing and testing the routines, little by little the program began to take shape. The system focuses on the training science of Muscle Confusion. The technique of constantly changing up the routines you do, which prevents your body form adapting, and promotes continuous results. It's called a training science for a reason.
