Default - P90x -

So after a few months of looking at this infomercial I decided to buy it. Anyone else out there that has used it who can comment on it? The workouts seem like they will be ok, but I dont know how willing I am to give up beer for 90 days.. and have grass and water for 3 meals a day.

You do not need to do that. P90x has a pretty decent nutrition program. It is all about 4-6 small means a day. You will need to be to read the list of ingredients on everything you buy at first. You need to get out of the habit of eating food that have partially hydrogenated anything, bleached flour...etc. I suggest getting the e book "burn the fat feed the muscle" It is really great and explains fitness from top to bottom and can really accentuate the P 90 X

p90x is tough. But make sure you eat well and use the dvds in the right orders.

What are you looking to do? Lose weight or get more fit?

Doesn't matter what you want to do, lose weight or get fit. You'll definately do both with P90X. I didn't even follow the eating plan but still got nice and lean. The workouts are INTENSE IMO! The first two weeks, I didn't think I was going to even keep going. Just remember to keep pushing yourself all the way through the workouts. They're hard, but your body will be too in a few weeks.

Well it does. There is a certain order to watch the vids that makes a ton of difference.

I checked the tracking.. it should be in monday or tuesday.. i plan to follow the instructions to the letter, but i want to look at some of the vids and do some grocery shopping first.. Im 6'4" 250lbs, when I got back from my Iraq deployment i was 215 and fairly lean. I even managed to keep it off untill my now SWMBO moved in.. thats when I got fat.

Im hoping after I get back in shape ill have some energy again. I work a full time job as a design engineer, im going back to school full time to take advantage of the new post 9-11 GI bill, and im working on opening a brewery with a friend as a weekend job. (we are getting close.. we got our building we just need to do some work to it and move our stuff in), so im extremely busy and tired all the time.

I can try to post before and after pictures.. i may have to blot out my fat man boobs though.. or post them in the************!

I am starting week 2 today and I have to tell you.. those DVD's kicked my A$$. I was sore all weekend. The foods not as bad as I thought. The breakfast scrambles arent really my favorite though.. too many egg whites.

You just need to be on a good meal plan and make sure you dont drink too much. Doing p90x hungover is the work of satan
