In the P90X nutrition guide, a plan is provided with three customizable phases. The goal of the plan is to allow the body to build muscles and burn fat.
The first phase of the P90X nutrition plan, called the Fat Shredder phase, focuses on high-protein foods to help the body burn fat. In the Energy Booster phase, users eat more carbohydrates and fewer fats, while continuing to ingest protein. The idea of this phase is to provide additional energy for the P90X exercise program.
The final phase of the P90X nutrition plan is the Endurance Maximizer. It combines protein, carbohydrates and reduced levels of fat to provide extra fuel for exercising.
