I'm pushing 1500 calories a day.
Remember something though....if you go too low on calories essentially your body will go instarvation mode and your metabolism will be shot. Ethiopian belly style and your body will start losing muscle. On a normal basis you have 2 diff goals. One would be to lose weight and the other is to gain mass. The whole "thing" about p90x is that through the stages you are trying to achieve different goals. Your 3rd phase is going to be your cutting. P90x claims phase 1 as your "fat shredder", phase 2 your energy booster, and phase 3 as your edurance maximizer on your diet so basically you need to look at diff goals for different phases.

Phase 1 is NOT where you want to bare bones cut calories! Your body is not used to the workout and it will starve and die. Not literally obviously but you need to fuel your body. Your body can lose 1-2 lbs a week safely on a normal basis. That doesn't apply now imho. You are trying to build up muscle. Muscle weights more than fat and sometimes you can even gain weight through the first phase or 2. THIS IS NORMAL! Don't get fixated on weight.....look at performance. If you are able to do more reps/weight you are building muscle. Eat a normal HEALTHY (talking to you kyle) diet and load up on protein! Cutting calories is crap during this phase. Eat your 5 small meals a day and keep it balanced. You want that power to kill the workouts!

PHASE 3 is where you want to go leaner on your proteins, calories, etc and try to burn that 1-2lbs a week.

Again this all opinion but I warn you.......I did stay at a holiday inn express last night

You do know insanity is completly different then P90X correct? Either way you still need to eat to keep your body from going into starvation mode....

I thought taylor was doing p90x. Insanity is a diff beast agreed but wasn't referring to that. The only insanity I've done is mixing some of the tapes in with p90x to sub cardio/yoga because I didn't get into the p90x version so I have zero quality input on insanity other than I hate it haha.

I thought most were doing insanity. I could be wrong. I am on my 4th week of it. I agree it sucks....but the results dont.

Power to anyone who can do it! My knee is jacked up so I am stuck on elliptical and rowing until I see how it does riding but I couldn't have done that day in/out before.

Yes almost everyone is doing Insanity with the exception of a couple who had injuries or who were already doing it and wanted to follow along with us for the accountability.

I'm still in the saddle everyone but now have a different question.

We are finishing week 2 now and I'm feeling better as far as energy goes.


My question is this.

Week before insanity started I weighed on 186 and then got sick. Dropped to 171 in a week and it freaked me out. By Monday start day I had put back on to 180. Stayed within 1-2# all week. Have a food melt down Monday and Tuesday and jump to 187 and Friday today I weigh in at 178.

This is how my body does normally. Is it normal to see 10+lb swings in a matter of a couple of days.

The only time I felt full this week was when I ate at BWW. Shakeology doesn't come close to satisfying any hunger. I drink it and my stomach is instantly pissed off and telling me I'm still on E keep feeding me.

That's why I passed on joining this group. 6 days a week is a tough commitment for anyone at any time. With building my house there was no way I could commit.

Get back at it when as soon as you can and forget the lapse.
