The Three Phase Nutrition Plan
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.
Identifying what, when, and how much to eat so you can lose fat and still get into incredible shape is the goal of this nutrition plan.
Phase 1: Fat Shredder
A high-protein-based diet designed to help you strengthen muscle while simultaneously and rapidly shedding fat from your body.
Phase 2: Energy Booster
A balanced mix of carbohydrates and protein with a lower amount of fat to achieve additional energy for performance.
Phase 3: 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 Fit Test
The P90X Fit Test takes approximately 40 minutes to complete. Be sure to consecutively perform all the exercises in the order they appear. Keep up with the timing, and make a note if you do anything differently. Pay attention, and be honest with yourself.
