P90X Diet for Vegetarians
P90X Diet for Vegetarians
p90x diet
8/3/09 7:03 AM
Hi,
I started doing P90X this morning but I am much concern about following the same diet program P90X is providing. I am a vegetarian and I can't eat most of the meals. The most I can do is eggs. How do I follow the same meal plan but replace means with other protein sources?

Thanks in advance

If you're looking for advice from the staff, please post in the fitness or nutrition forum under "Information & Education." That's where we work.

However, to answer your question, your best bet is to switch to the portion plan. That'll give you much more control. If you REALLY want to follow the meal plan, tofu can be put in most meals. If there's one that just doesn't work, come to Nutrition and let me know.

Rob and I are also eat Veg and we've modified P90x and Insanity.

I mostly keep to Michi's ladder because there's some options there.
You can use tofu but legumes are also substitutions. I don't like to overload
on soy.. Jury is still out on that whole thing...

I also wish there was a schedule of meals that were vegetarian but
I guess doing the research myself isn't so bad.

I can't believe though, that the INSANITY nutrition guide recommends
a meal of Rotisserie chicken. Those things are pumped full of sodium/H20
to keep them moist. We mostly stay on the veg/organic/ raw options.

There are probably other Veg people on the boards. Do a search and see if anything
good comes up.

Good luck!

I dont follow the P90X diet as I am a vegan.
I just want a good challenging workout, and I doubt I will ever achieve the drastic
results due to my diet, but I am enjoying myself!
