For the past 2 weeks, I have decided to cut out ALL cardio and focus solely on resistance training. I started taking Creatine Ethyl Ester last week, which is a newer form of creatine that is said to have the same effects as creatine monohydrate, but without all the water retention and bloating. I have been doing all the P90X resistance exercises, but still making sure that I give each muscle group proper rest before working again. I’m still using Shakeology every day for lunch, and taking the P90X Recovery Formula and whey protein as well.
Below is my current P90X diet. I’m sticking with about 2,200 cals per day because I’m not looking to get huge, but want to stay cut and build some muscle. Since using a P90X diet similar to this for the past 2 weeks and from using creatine, I have noticed some increase in strength and size, but still am ripped. I haven’t weighed myself, but I’m guessing that I’ve gained about 3-5lbs and probably somewhere between 163-167lbs.
Understand that the diet below IS NOT an actual diet plan from the P90X Nutrition Guide, and is one that I have created for my specific goals. If you’re going through P90X, you need to follow the Nutrition Guide, but you can get some ideas from my diet below.
Now you all know what my current P90X diet looks like. If you would like to have custom meal plans created for you, I recommend getting the Club Membership, which does that for you.
