I went on my first P90X grocery run this morning and bought food for the upcoming week along with a Polar FS3 Heart Rate Monitor Watch. For the first 30 days, I’ll be in the Fat Shredder phase of the P90X nutrition plan. Based on my resting metabolic rate and daily activity burn calculations, I’ll need 2,400 calories a day which puts me in the Level II class.

In Level II during the Fat Shredder phase, you are required to consume the following each day:

  • 7 servings of protein
  • 3 servings of dairy
  • 1 serving of fruit
  • 4 servings of vegetables
  • 1 serving of fat
  • 1 serving of carbs
  • 3 snacks

Food should be eaten every 2-3 hours and I’m opting for the portion approach, which is great for those who don’t like to cook meals.

I bought a lot of good food at the grocery store, including steaks, tuna, ground turkey, oranges, blueberries, raspberries, skim milk, fat free yogurt, fat free cottage cheese, cucumber, tomatoes, celery, whole wheat bagels, and egg whites.

I’m getting ready to take my pre-P90X measurements and before pictures. I’ll post the photos and stats in a little while…
