Sorry about the late post. I've been real busy at work...
Anyways, yesterday was my plyometrics workout. I coasted a little through this one mainly because in the back of my mind I feel like I am losing too much weight. I was down to 161 pounds yesterday morning. A full 20 pound loss since I start P90X! Unfortunately for me, weight loss is not my goal this round -- muscle gain is!
So, I am going to change up the diet some. My current intake is about 2600 calories a day with a breakdown of 40% Protein, 40% Carbs, and 20% Fat. I've decided to jump into the Phase 3 of the P90X nutrition guide which is 60% Carbs, 20% Protein, and 20% Fat. Hopefully, by doing this my body will burn all the excess carbs instead of the fat and I will stop losing weight.
Another thing I am going to do is add some weight gaining supplements. The first product I am going to use is Cell Mass. Cell Mass is a Creatine based product that is to be used as a post-workout/recovery drink. It is also advertised as helping with muscles mass while you sleep .. we shall see! The second product is Nitrix>. Nirix is supposed to help blood flow to your muscles, which in-turn will decrease fatigue, which will allow for more reps, which will tear your muscles more each workout, which will over time create greater muscle growth (yes, I just took a deep breathe after reading that!).
The bottom line is that by following both the P90X nutrition guide and workouts I have turned my body into a lean, mean fat burning machine. And I do not know what else to do to make it stop!! I am sure eating pizza, fried chicken everyday, and a six-pack of beer Would fatten me right up but that lifestyle is no longer an option. It needs to be done eating clean with the aide of some supplements.
Alright -- now it is time to go workout!
