Monday – P90X Chest & Back and AB Ripper X

Dave’s approx. calories  2600  Anne’s approx. calories 2100

Numbers in (parenthesis) are for Anne.  Our boys, ages 11, 13, and 17 eat what we eat and because this is a low carb plan, I throw in extra fruits, snacks, complex carbs..yes, cookies, crackers,pancakes…for them! I’ve indicated the portion sizes for each individual, but will simply cook enough for a family and then portion out the meal. If I need an extra snack, I have 1/2 cup of 0% Fage yogurt usually…because I love it.

If you are eating vegetarian or vegan meals only, then you might benefit from using the portions approach in the P90X book. Or, simply take note of where the protein sources are in the meal planner and substitute your favorite lean protein. Remember for the first fat shredder phase, beans are also high in carbs. Just keep that in mind.

Sunday – Stretch X or Rest

After church we frequently eat out or have lunch at Grandma’s. The rest of the meals and snacks are whatever is leftover from the previous week or simply sandwiches, bean burritos..something simple and fast. I don’t cook much on Sunday unless someone has a special request.  I also usually shop for our next week’s groceries on the way home from church on Sunday.
