Comment posted If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Coach Nancy.
I’m glad you are enjoying the program. As for weight loss, the P90X diet calculates way too many calories for women. The problem with their approach which tries to add in calculations based on metabolism is that there is no adjustment for whether the person is male or female. The fact is that a man and a woman who each weigh 160lbs each have a very different body mass composition with the man having far more lean mass than the women. Moreover, the 20% add for general activity is just too much for our very sedintary society. And finally, adding in 600 calories for the P90X routines means you are adding calories so the exercise component won’t take weight off.
I highly recommend you follow the guidelines I have posted over at http://www.pressplayfitness.com/?p=2105. This is far fewer calories but it is quite adequate for what your body needs to support itself and will enable you to lose weight at a reasonable pace. At the end of the day, getting to your right weight is both a process of eating good foods and the right amount of them. You need to lose the ‘chow hound’ mentality unless it’s your one cheat day a week.
