I just signed up for the program. They wanted me to buy all the supplements. I keep strict Glatt Kosher. Does anyone on the program know anything about the kosherus of the products. Does anyone have a list of ingredients? I emailed them and they said to go on the message board. thanks

food meal plan kosher nutrition nutritionist supliments
3/15/10 1:26 PM as a reply to ephraim770.
Hi guys. My name is Yoni and I am leafing through the P90X meal plan and well lets just say, this si NOT a kosher meal plan.

In regards to the supplements... Vitamins are like medicine in that medicine does not need to be labaled Kosher. The drink mix? I honestly do not know. Due to the fact that it is just raw ingridients and very little else I am gonna try it and not worry about it.

The food however is CLEARLY unkosher. you got meals mixing milk and meat, you got pig products, everything. this is CLEARLY not kosher.

I am actually a mashgiyach (designated Jew who is qualified to verify Kashrut and have worked many (over 3 dozen) parties to ensure said kashrut.

I would like to say to the nutritionists that read these boards that I will happily work with them to create a Kosher meal plan for P90X to add value and appeal to a wider audience.

A few key rules though gang. We do not mix dairy products with any meat (Beef, or poultry) We CAN mix milk and fish (Fish is not considred meat according to the laws of Kashrut. And I would bet dollars to donuts that the snack bars are not kosher, and again will gladly work with any nutritionist to come up with a solution to make things kosher AND nutritious.

Yoni.

I have the book Eating for Life from Bill Phillips from the Body for life program. It has many recipies that are kosher although it is not a kosher book. Not all of the recipies are kosher but many are. Check it out in the library and see if that will help you.

Good luck

I'm also shomer Torah u'mitzvos, and found Kosher Protein Powder at KosherVitamins.com. Just Google "Kosher Protein Powder" and a few options come up. I also got a box of protein bars, "Action Nutrition" brand, under the heart K.

I'd like to find a suitable substitute for the "Recovery Drink" if anyone has come up with one. Not sure if Gatorade does the trick.

RE keeping to the diet plan on Shabbos, one just has to heed the portion controls under the Diet Plan in the book. Ignore the recipes, since most of them are problematic with respect to basar v'chalav, triefos, other ma'acholos asuros. Instead of starchy, MSG laden gefilte fish, a 3 oz piece of salmon is fine. 3 oz. piece of chicken breast, appropriate portions of cooked and raw vegetables, and fruit instead of cake.

For the kiddush club after davening, I've got no eitzah. Just enjoy the single malt scotch and herring, and be somech on the idea that "Shabbos calories don't count." That should be the worst of our holy vices!

In regards to Shabbos food: like the Rambam says, everything in moderation. So for on Shabbos, I drink less than I used to (although it depends on the week) and don't really eat anything at kiddush, I also make sure that I am able to eat something before I go to shul in the AM... this means getting up exceptionally early

My focus on diet while doing Insanity is to ensure that I get the appropriate amount of calories in the suggested amounts of food types (protein, Carbs, fats) in as close to five meals a day. So far, I'm batting around 80% on the volume of calories and 30% on the number of meals.

Good luck and keep pushin'

The Torah says " Thou shall not mix the meat of the mother with the meat of the calf." Poultry cannot produce milk. This is only reserved for mammals. Technically we are allowed to have poultry and milk together. The reason we do not is because around 500 AD Ashkenazi rabbis decided that we need to consider poultry as meat because supposedly back then people got ground poultry mixed up with ground veal. Sephardim began keeping that Ashkenazi tradition much later on when the Shulchan Aruch was created. Until then it varied with Ashkenazi rabbis.

But yes I do agree Yoni that they should make a kosher offer for those that keep kosher, or hallal.

Shalom. Lior.

Most snack bars and nutrition bars do say if they are kosher or not.

But also keep in mind that just because it says kosher on it that doesn't mean it is kosher. Hebrew naitonal has the kosher sign on it but it is no longer kosher and has not been for sometime.

There are a lot of kosher foods out there with out the various kosher signs. Just look up the ingredients and research a bit online.

Your Right Yoni, that's where eating clean all natural and making your own bars comes in handy. Spend one day making your healthy cookies, bars, cakes, chips, and anything else you like to eat but healthy. Plan out your meals for the week make your grocery list do your shopping or have someone shop for you. Get it done and get it done clean that's how you eat Kosher food on a diet. We are all struggling with it but if you are organized and make things in advance you can get it done. I'm also struggling but that's life with three kids a husband who needs to work all the time and my stuff needs to get done plus I was working as well. YOU GET IT DONE!

Be well,
Rachel

I agree with what you wrote there are other options, also keep in mind that you can substitute a meat product with a fish or vegan product in your diet plan. It's hard but can be done Tony Horton himself is a vegetarian. But then again he has a nutritionist and cook preparing and portioning his food for him. To be successful at this you would need to get a good nutritionist who can help you make a vegan diet menu following the P90X numbers. Then on one of your free days like a Sunday unless you are living in Israel. You will do your shopping and your meal prep for the whole week. putting everything in it's proper containers and bags for the week. So you can grab and go a meal. This is how it works.
As for the Shabbas Calories Cholent can be made healthy I've done it. Just keep in mind how much you are eating my Shabbas cakes or cookies are healthy ones. Just don't do what my inlaws do they say calories on Shabbat and holidays don't count, well they do if you are exaggerating it. My husband says I need to eat at the Kiddish meal because it's a blessing for the person hosting it. I agree BUT don't take a large plate and fill it up knowing you will be going home to eat again with your family and guest. Eat a little bit of one or two things try to include vegetables and fruit in it.

Good luck I know it can be done!

If you're a moshgiach, how about we try to get a hechsher on the supplements. I'm kinda with you on the whole vitamin, suppliment thing, but this could be just us trying to rationalize. It's better if there's a hechsher on it. It doesn't cost Beach Body a lot to provide a hechsher on the label does it?? Please please please how do we get them to do that?

Obviously if it has a reliable hechsher then it's kosher. But I thought snack bars are loaded with carbs and sugar. That's why I would stay away from them. The supplements and shakes are what I'm interested in!! I wish they could get a hechsher on them!

Adding my two cents: They have repeatedly said that all the ingredients on the supplements are kosher. Yet they refuse to get a hashgacha. It seems to me that, if anything, this would imply that their supplements are not kosher. All I can suggest is eat healthy and come up with some sort of simple carb right after working out, followed by more proteins later. There are lots of good green powders out there that have a good hechsher (Amazing Grass). That would be a good way to get some of those other nutrients...

You are confused on some facts. This is not the place to go through halacha or your confusion of history. Regardless, the facts are that observant jews separate dairy and meat (including poultry) and we Sephardim additionally avoid fish and dairy.

Orthodox guy here.

On shabbat I don't do anything. I might stretch a little. sometimes on motzei shabbat I'll do a little bit. The plan allows for a day of rest so enjoy.


Regarding the food plan. I'm not a big fan of junk you have to buy. Even if they were kosher, I wouldn't buy the bars, drinks, or powder. Ask yourself, do I want a fad or do I want a change I can make for the rest of my life. You're not going to be buying bars, and drinks, and powder for the rest of your life, so don't start now.

What you should be eating is healthy basic foods. Your plate at every meal for the rest of your life should be 70% veggies and 30% protein (chicken, beef, fish, eggs, cottege cheese, etc). Have a little fruit, after you work out. A typical meal might be an omlette with huge amounts of veggies -- spinach, mushrooms, etc.; salad with tuna; grilled veggies and chicken.

I said 70% veggies and 30% protein. That means drop almost all starches (including whole wheat which is a scam) -- get rid of bread, rice, potatoes, mezonot. The only bread I eat is challah on shabbat, or an occassional Ezekiel bread. Starches break down into sugar immediately and spike your blood sugar, causing insulin releases, which create stress, cholesterol, and ultimately fat. You want foods that give you energy for many, many hours -- protein and veggies.

That's it.

Oh, and I've gone from 27% fat to 16% fat in the last 3 months, on P90X and focusing on eating veggies and protein. I'm always full and I make good natural food, from the basics that HaShem made, not Kellogs or Kraft.
