I just have a quick question regarding calorie intake. Currently, I am doing the p90x3 doubles schedule and in week 1 of block 2. My weight is 180 pounds height is 5'10. My calorie intake right now is 1900 calories with a 20/45/35 ratio of fats, protein, carbs. I was just wondering is 1900 to low for a doubles routine. I have a desk job so I dont burn to many calories there. Also, any tips on getting rid of this lower belly fat

Hey coach! Great site!! Just wondering though why there's a discrepancy between the DAILY ACTIVITY BURN percentage in the P90x nutrition plan (book), and your formula. The book uses a DAB of 20%, but you use 10%. Since I'm trying to fine-tune my caloric intake as much as possible, I was wondering if there was a reason for that difference, or if it's simply a typo. There may be others out there that are confused as well by this. Thanks!!!

Hey Sean, I was wondering how many calories you would recommend for me. I am 154-158 pounds and my height is 5'11. I am currently at like 14% body fat. So how many calories would i need to get under 10% body fat? Thanks!!

thanks for the response and i have one more question for ya: (i am about 6'1" and weigh about 163) file:///Users/jesseconrad/Desktop/DOWNLOADED/IMAG0008.jpg that is where i am at now as of a few days ago after my first p90x workout. basically my goal is to stay in the upper 160's for weight and not get above 173-5, all in all i am trying to get more lean and cut. my diet is BREAKFAST: 4 egg white omelet with chicken breast or turkey mixed in, with whole wheat pita bread(containg around 140 cal) and a serving of fruit. i then take my leucine-xt pills and caffeine powder for a pre supplement, then i workout following my workout i have a 100% gold standard protein shake LUNCH: a big salad (balsamic vinegar) with turkey or chicken breast and a small bowl of brown rice, fruit as well SNACK: i have a pure protein bar (20 grams protein and 2 grams sugar) 200 calories and about 40 from fat DINNER: i have some type of meat (either whole chicken breast skinless, turkey, salmon grilled all healthy), 1 cup of brown rice, a side of salad (balsamic vinegar with belpeppers, onions, tomatos, avocado) then a big serving of vegetables. what do you think about my diet...do i need any adjustments? as for my body type, i can lose weight and gain weight both very rapidly if that helps at all.

hey man, should i be doing my workouts in the morning to boost my metabolism throughout the rest of the day and will that also promote more fat loss? and should i eat breakfast or a snack before the workout? maybe a protein shake?

Hey. I am in the process of making a meal plan as a hard gainer. I am approximately 6" tall and weight 145 lbs. Ive been through 1 round of p90x where I had to stop 60 days through, and another this year where I had to stop 70 days through. Ive noticed fairly good results so far but would like to see more of an increase in size and weight now. While thinking of how I would break it down, I noticed it would be hard to get 3000+ calories and enough carbs without a supplement, so I believe im going to use allmax quickmass. (Not my first option, but it makes life a lot easier) Heres how it looks so far: Breakfast: - 1 cup oatmeal - 1/4 cup raisins - cinnamon - 15 grams natrual unflavored whey Snack: - 191 grams of allmax quickmass mixed with water. May throw a banana in once in a while (250g twice daily is what they suggest, too much though I think, so i went from 4 scoops twice daily to 3 twice daily) Lunch: - 4oz bonless chicken breast (will alternate with tuna) - 2 whole wheat pieces of bread - mustard ect, no mayo Post workout: - 30 grams natural protein - 1/2 cup orange juice Snack 2: - 191 grams allmax quickmass mixed with water. (may mix with 1 cup of milk every so often) Dinner: - 5oz chicken breast - 1 cup brown rice - 1 cup mixed vegies/brocolli or sweet potato. Bed Time Snack: - Still havent figured out what I want to add in for the last meal. Was thinking 1 cup cottage cheese, but it messes with the balance, and so does a peanut butter jelly sandwitch. Total: - 2,943 calories - 73.3 fat - 395.9 carbs - 211.8 protein The ratio is 51/28/21 (p/c/f) without the last snack. I was aiming for 50/30/20/ and hopefully around 3200 calories. Let me know if I am aiming in the right direction. Is this enough calories to gain muscle mass? Also, on this plan, if followed 100%, how much weight would someone expect to gain in a month?

Sean I just wanna say you are a big inspiration! What I want to ask you is that I'm on week 3 of the p90x program, and I'm confused about the whole 8-10 reps for size and 12-15 for lean. I'm following the diet, protein shakes, multivitamins and recovery drink, but I don't want to look like some puffed up bodybuilder, I wanted to know did you do the reps for muscle mass or lean muscles? I'm kinda shooting for your results! Any response would be great! -owen

Hey Sean! I just finished 30 days of P90X and was really interested in making you my coach! I have been seeing results but feel they could be better with your coaching. I'm new to the coaching. I was just wondering how it worked because I definitely have questions regarding food and would greatly appreciate feedback!

@Brad: It depends on your current goals but If you are doing P90X, I would go for 2000-2200 if you are looking to get down to 10%. Are you doing P90X?

@Jesse: There are different schools of thought when it comes to workout timing...traditionally they say best time to do cardio is in the morning on an empty stomach and to you resistance days in the late afternoon. My philosophy is workout when you're the most motivated to. I have done both and see the same results. I prefer to have a little something on my stomach when I workout in the morning, so on cardio days I will do water + whey protein. On resistance days I will do a protein shake with some complex carbs.

@Cody M: It depends on your goals. I am a P90X guy myself :) (obviously since I am in P90X2 I am a little bias). So I think that for a person who wants to get stronger, get more muscle, lose body fat, and improve their total fitness then I think P90X is the way to go. Insanity is for those who love cardio and want to improve their endurance and cardio performance. You also get great body fat lose. But there are now resistance workouts in Insanity.

@Jessie: Your ratios are close enough but I think you may have typed them wrong. They should be around 50/30/20 of (C/P/F) the way you have it. Not 50% from protein. Regardless that looks like a good mass gaining meal plan. As you progress you may even need to add more calories. It all depends on how your body responds. Give it 2 weeks as see how you are doing. If you aren't gaining then add 200 calories to it each week till you do. Also, it will be very important for you to use the proper resistance. Keep your weight high and your reps low.

@Owen: My advice would be to shoot for 8-10 reps on all the exercises that call for it. Some of them call for higher reps (16) or so. Go ahead and follow what Tony does on the videos. You won't look like a "puffed up bodybuilding", I promise :). I did 8-10 reps all the way through and also went to failure for all body weight exercises. Let me know how else I can help!
