Insanity Nutrition Plan
From the people that brought you The P90X Nutrition Plan Made Easy, we proudly present our breakdown of the Insanity Nutrition Guide. We are following the meal plan approach and trying to stick with the plan as best we can. The nutrition plan is fairly straight forward. The Insanity diet plan includes five power meals per day with relatively equal caloric value. You’ll need to determine your own caloric needs using the mathematical formula in the Elite Nutrition Guide.
Step 1 – Get the Insanity Calorie Calculator Spreadsheet and Calculate your Calories
The Insanity Elite Nutrition Guide presents an incredibly powerful way to light your metabolic fire and keep it going all day long. The basic premise of the Elite Nutrition Guide is to eat 5 meals per day and have each of those meals be of nearly equivalant value. The first step in the nutrition guide is to calculate your calories. The calculations in the Elite Nutrition Guide are somewhat complicated. To simplify things we have created a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet walks you through the threes step process to determine your required caloric intake. Note that: (1) there are separate calculations for men and women; and (2) the process requires you to be honest about your activity levels and goals.
Once you have the spreadsheet, you’ll want to watch the following videos that explain how to use them and give some ideas on how to lay out your daily food intake with the Insanity Elite Nutrition Guide.
