Comment posted on If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Coach Nancy
1800 calories is too much! Read my article at http://www.pressplayfitness.com/06/my-p90x-diet/ to calculate what you should be eating. Also you didn’t indicate if you are doing Classic but that’s what you should do and lift as heavy as you can in the 8 – 10 rep range. I have no idea why Tony suggests women could lift lighter and do more reps. We women have a hard time putting on any muscle so we need to stimulate it as much or more than men to get lean muscle.
Also you should be getting as close to 8 hours sleep as you can. 7 hours is really the minimum you’ll need for recovery. Short change your sleep and you’ll elevate your cortisol levels and that could keep you from losing any weight. Don’t do doubles your first round of P90X. That’s too much exercise and that also will increase your cortisol levels.
Finally drink a gallon of water a day. Water raises your metabolism and it helps your body rid itself of toxins.
