Default Any P90X Users?

I've been on the goal to losing weight lately and after that adding on a little bit a muscle through P90X. So far it's been going great. I got on the scale two Fridays ago the weight said 241.2. I thought to myself "Damn, I've left my Billy Mays ass go really bad." So that Friday I took out all my bad snacks I have during the day, replaced with with low-calories/low-carbohydrate snacks. And I had decent portions for breakfast/lunch/dinner. To my estimates I probably cut out 2500-3000 calories in my ugly diet because of the snacks I was having. Also I decided to run on a treadmill for 30 minutes each day.

One week later I weighed myself in the morning the next Friday and the scale said 235.6. So I've already dropped 5.6 pounds in a week. The only time I ever dropped more week was when I was sick for 4 days. I went from 239 pounds down to 226.

Anyway my first big goal is to get down to about maybe 215-ish and possibly starting P90X. The reason I want to start P90X later is for one, it's really intimidating. And two, the whole program is mainly based around strength training. Over half of it in fact. So you actually don't see a big weight lost because as your burning the fat off, you're gaining muscle. My goal is to lose the fat first.

So has anyone used it for an extended period of time? Did you go through the whole 13-week process of it? What are you opinions of it? Were you satisfied?

Thank you.

I have never tried P90X, but I know people who have done it, and if you keep up with it, it will work.

Well, the first bunch of weight is always easiest when you're that heavy to begin with (no offense intended of course).

As I'm sure you know, P90x is very time intensive and it is pretty hard to be disciplined about it for a long period of time. But, it definitely does work but diet is also a big part of it. I burned fat and got more cut, but I didn't really like the slimming down effect it had on me so I got off. However, since slimming down and cutting seems to your main goal, I'd say its definitely a worthwhile investment.

I have done a solid month of p90x before, great program if a little too intense to begin with and you really do need a chin up bar and a set of weights to get the most out of it.

Diet is 80% of losing fat and keeping it off, we don't always have time to exercise but we do always have to eat. Clean eating is a must!

ohh and meticode building muscle burns fat, if you were 230+ of muscle your body would be burning more calories just maintaining itself then being 230+ of fat. Building muscle will help you in burning body fat.

best of luck mate.

Let's just say you know a pack of Oreo's? I would eat that in one sitting. Or a pack of cookies that are 260 calories each and there is 12 of them. I could eat all those in one sitting. I was pigging big time.

Once you start eating healthier, you'll feel a lot better, and you'll actually enjoy it and the taste of the food you're eating. It'll also be a lot easier saying no to the junk food.

Not quite that high. Right now I've reduced my calorie intact to 1750-2000. I was doing about 4500-5000 a day.

There were days I would each a Wendy's meal with a Bacon Deluxe Triple large, fries and drink. that meal alone by itself is like 2500+ calories.

Default Re: Any P90X Users?

Here's a better idea, find a personal trainer, (and start training of course) take the supplement that he suggests, keep eating the same amount of calories, but replace the oreos/junk food with vegtables, meat, sandwhiches, and other healthy foods (again, ask your personal trainer). You'll be a lean, mean, muscle machince in no time.

Default Re: Any P90X Users?

While we're on the topic of P90x and all those, are they good for adding mass or just for bigger guys to tone up/trim down?

My only problem is gaining mass. I'm already pretty toned and a decent size (5'9, 186) but I wanna get bigger. It's hard because I'm on a pretty tight budget and can only eat about one big meal a day with small meals/snacks built up around that.
