P90X plan seems like A LOT of food!!??
Hi Guys,

I've been struggling with the serving sizes for the p90x nutrition plan. I'm in my first week and having a hard time eating the full meals (ex: 8 oz of turkey, 2 cups squash soup, 1 cup green beans). Anyone have suggestions? Will it get better as I start working harder and needing all this food???

Help!

Jenna

I am also a little uncertain about this. I found the meal plan included with p990x to be a bit confusing, so I opted to become a member and use the food calculator on the site, but I am having a tough time hitting the reccamended 2700 calories. I'm 5'11" 165 lbs. I have a bit of a pooch on my belly and some love handles, but other than that I don't have any problematic fat areas to get rid of.

It gets easier, just like getting used to eating less, your stomach has to adjust to eating larger amounts of food.

For me it wasnt so much the size but the frequency of the meals.

The best feeling is when you are absolutely exhausted from your workout, take a shower, and eat a big meal and just lay there afterwards and relax.

If we are using the recovery formula after our workout, how long are we supposed to wait before eating again?

After you cool down go ahead and eat.

No. Correct answer is to wait 45-60 mins after drinking your recovery drink before eating anything.
