The Three Phases
Any X’er will tell you, the P90X Nutrition Program is key to maximizing your results. Just as P90X isn’t a quick fix or miracle fad the nutrition plan is about choosing the foods you WANT to eat and determining the portions that’ll properly fuel you before, during and after each of your workouts.
Phase 1: Fat Shredder

EB is a healthy mix of protein and carbohydrates with a reduced amount of protein to maximize endurance and provide additional energy for performance (eg, during Plyometrics workouts!). [view recipes]
