I don’t actually follow the P90X nutrition guide. Simple sugars outside of the acceptable fruit list I provided in my response to Teresa are just going to contribute to insulin spikes which (this is a simplified answer) ends up causing your body to hoard fat. That’s not what you want. Now I’m not going to go into all the detail here, but right after a resistance workout if you really lift heavy, there is a window where you can use simple sugars to an advantage. However, that’s only going to work if you have emptied the glycogen our of your muscles so the sugar you do consume goes to replace it. If you are carrying significant ab fat, you don’t need to concern yourself about feeding your muscles in a narrow window after working out. You are insulin resistant (your body manufactures more than enough insulin and does it too frequently) which is what is causing the ab fat.
Short answer – stay with my guidelines if you have ab fat. If you don’t, you have more flexibility in your diet.
