P90X2 Phase 1 Results And Needed Diet Changes
Yesterday I finished my first phase of P90X2. I have to be honest here: I am a bit disappointed in my results. I lost weight, lost inches, but body fat did not move much. My big focus is body fat, so it barely moving is a bit frustrating.
My last 2-3 weeks I did a mainly Paleo style diet. While I absolutely love eating a Paleo style diet, I think I have to make a move mainly away from it in order to get the results I want.
So I am returning to more of how the X2 guideline is. When I did that for the first 2 weeks I felt I was losing at a solid pace. Going back to a higher fat version of Paleo seemed to slow my results to a halt.
I feel I have learned a lot about my body eating primal. The biggest thing I have learned is the I do not need wheat products. As I move forward I may allow some grains but a majority of my carbs will come from fruits and vegetables. Of all the things I know I have learned it is that I can always eat more fruits and veggies and be okay.
And like my previous post, I still plan to have a fiber focus it avoiding grains a majority of the time to meet this goal. I will also go back to focusing more on lean meat, limiting red meats, and cutting fats back to around 25-30% of my intake, with a majority being monounsaturated fats.
So, what about to my results?
I lose 4 pounds, but this fluctuated quite a. It.
I lost an inch of waistline.
I lost 1.25″ off my chest.
I actually gained size in one bicep.
So that’s that. Time to get serious and get down to business!
