Comment posted on If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Coach Nancy
For the first time out, do the Classic routine. Don’t add in any extra cardio – you don’t need it. If you workout hard by lifting as heavy as you can while still maintaining form and continuously push yourself to do a little bit more at each workout, your body will start to respond. The body needs recovery time and adding in more cardio can interfere with that. The weight will come off if you eat right while you workout hard.
And as for diet, you’ll need at last 200 grams of protein a day – 250 would be better. The problem with that is you can’t get that much protein each day without eating a small mountain of chicken and another mountain of egg whites. Other protein sources will have too much fat in them to be significant contributors to your protein totals (you can eat other proteins – you just need to be aware of the fats in them and keep the fats under control). So for ease of consumption, protein shakes are recommended. Two scoops of a high quality whey protein will get you anythere from 45 – 50 grams of protein with nearly no added fat or carb. I keep a list of all the protein powders I’ve used and recommend over at http://www.pressplayfitness.com/members/forum/topic/Breakfast-Ideas.htm#topic/Protein-Powders.htm.
