My Grocery List!

As most of you know, I used the P90X program and Nutrition Guide to get into excellent shape. However, the Nutrition Guide contained some foods that I don’t really care for, so I decided to purchase substitutes that contained the same nutritional value.

I decided to post my grocery list so that next time you go to the store, you can shop like me! I usually shop at Wal-Mart, which seems to be the cheapest, and get the Great Value (GV) brand (Wal-Mart generic) for most products. This is for 1 month of supplies for 2 people!

  1. 2 packages of Strawberries
  2. GV Fat-free whipped cream

  26. 2 packages Pork Chops
  27. 5 packages GV Frozen Chicken Breasts
  28. 5 lbs of 93/7 Ground Beef
  29. 2 lbs Butterball Oven Roasted Turkey Breast
  30. 5 cans of GV Tuna
  31. 2 GV 400 packets Sweeteners
  32. 2 packages Dole Romaine Lettuce

    Hey, I was just wondering something. I’ve decided to start my diet and eat healthier foods, so what I did was cut out as much unnecessary fats and sweets out of anything that I eat. However, I read something on your forum earlier thats said I need a certain percantage of fats carbs and proteins in my diet accordingly to P90X, but I don’t know how I could calculate that being as I’m only 15 years old. So is it okay if I have minimal fats, and then mostly carbs and protein? If not what could I do?

  2. You have to log what you eat into

  3. Rudy /

    Hey Josh I got my free account for fitday but I’m quite confused on how to use it can you help me please

  4. Josh /

    @Rudy. You just log what you eat into it man. You can use, which is a little easier.

  5. do you only go food shopping one a month? do you freeze most of the food to keep it from going bad?

  6. @Dom. We go shopping a couple times per month, and yeah, we will freeze some foods so that they don’t go back, like bagels.

  7. Sandy /

    I was reading over these postings and would love to have you as my team beachbody coach. When I signed up they gave me a coach automatically. Could you tell me how to switch coaches so I can have you instead? Thanks!

  8. @Sandy. Here is how to make the coach switch..

    If you would like to make a coach switch, you simply have to send a one line email to telling them that you want JOSH SPENCER (Coach ID 47458) at to be your coach. Make sure to include your FULL NAME and email address and to copy me on the email so I can follow up.

    ? my husband and I just started the P90X program and my husband went shopping with your shopping list and was wondering if there is somewhere I can get where you use everything. I got Jello but when and where is it incorperate in the diet. I need help with dinner recipes that are satisfing to him.(needs some kind of meat) This is hard for me when I really dont know where to begin.

  10. Josh /

    @Lyndsey. You’re going to want to follow the Nutrition Guide that comes along with the program!

  11. Michelle /

    Thank you for this list — this gives me something to start with.

  12. mary /

    Could I use this for the insanity workout?

  13. Josh /

    @Mary. It’s important that you try to follow the diet that’s specific to the program. However, most of the foods are very similar.

  14. mary /

    Ok, thanks Josh 😉

  15. Jake /

    This is awesome, I did a 30 day round of p90x and stopped because I got lazy, now that I have a start with foods I should consume I’m more confident in what I’m going to be doing. This is very inspirational. I came across your video on YouTube… Only 10 minutes ago and this is where I’ll start my journey! Thank you!

  16. Desiree' Davenport /

    I just wanted to say thank you for simplifying this! I’m not even on the P90X plan: my friend/boss is which probably contributes to my loss at where to start! If I can figure this out before he wants to start on Monday (01/07/13), I will be the most amazing person in the world! I’m actually tempted to try this after I get the hang of it for him!
    This may seem like a basic question, but what is a recovery shake? Another: is there a vegetarian (not vegan) version of this meal plan somewhere? Please let me know!
    By the way, he is Level 3 if it matters (also, he is a supposed to consume over 3000 calories [3300], how will this affect the plan)?

  17. @Desiree. Hey! First of all, am I your coach? Or his coach?
