Posting my P90X2 pics has generated a lot of interest and questions about my diet. This blog post will help answer some of those questions and give you a sample day. Click here to get my full Ripped in 3 Months Meal Plan.
First, everyone should install MyFitnessPal onto your smart phone. This app makes tracking your food intake so easy, you have no excuse not to track. It has just about every food you can think of already in their database. It’s great if your using the P90x nutrition guide and following the protein/carb/fat ratios. MyFitnessPal will display a nice pie graph displaying your current ratios for the day and count down remaining calories, protein, carbs, and fats.
My diet is fairly similar day to day. The only significant changes are the protein sources for each meal or adding more carbs due to running. My snacks change based on what I’m in the mood for, but are generally high in protein.
NOTES: I change up the snacks…I don’t have the same snack for all 3 snack times. Also, one of the snack times is actually my post workout protein shake. E & E Formula is always before a workout.
I usually have a fruit or some source of carbs after workouts and runs as well.
DRINK WATER!!!! TONS OF IT!!!!!
This plan has me around 1800-1900 clories when cutting and 3100-3400 calories, when bulking. This is a lot of food and keeps me full all day. Keep in mind my activity level (very active day job, P90X, Body Beast, running, etc…). If I don’t run or do any cardio that day, I remove some carbs (fruit). This is my diet to maintain low body fat and build muscle. Depending on your current weight and bodyfat levels…if you are less active, you may need less calories; if your bulking you might need more. To figure out your caloric needs go HERE or message me. I can help you figure your goals depending on your current weight, body fat, and activity level.
