My Insanity Meal Plan

my insanity meal planI have had a lot of people asking me what my diet looks like while I am doing Insanity, so I decided to post EXACTLY what my Insanity meal plan looks like.

My focus is on rapid fat loss, so one thing you will notice about my insanity meal plan is that in each phase I am at a calorie deficit. One of the mistakes that a crap ton of people make is thinking that what they calculate in the Insanity Nutrition Guide is set in stone. You can actually adjust that calculation to suit whatever results you want to get! Just be sure you follow the guidelines I lay out in my post on how to calculate your calorie deficit for weight loss.

 

My 3 Phases – Insanity Meal Plan

From my experience and success with nutrition I have developed a 3 phase plan that I know works for me! One of the things that a lot of people run into during P90X or any workout program for that matter, is a weight loss plateau. The plan below is specifically designed to maximize fat loss while avoiding any type of fat loss plateau by a concept I call “Diet Confusion”. Its like P90X’s Muscle Confusion, in that you are constantly changing things up so that your body never has a chance to plateau and get comfortable where its at.

calorie deficit to lose weightThis worked for me extremely well with P90X and P90X2! I started off both programs following My 1900 calorie diet and then I would bump up my calories to 2300 in phase-2, then switch to a Energy Booster plan (40/40/20 macronutrient ratio) at 2300 calories. This “Diet Confusion” kept the fat melting and I completely avoided plateaus!

I personally feel like I have a ton of energy @ 2000 calories per day in Phase-1 of my insanity meal plan. Others might need more calories in order to give 100% in their workouts and not feel depleted all day long. The key is to listen to your body and adjust as needed.

 

Here Is The 3-Phase Breakdown

Phase-1 (weeks 1-4): Energy Booster = 40/40/20 @ 2000 calories per day

Phase-2 (recovery week): Fat Shredder = 50/30/20 @ 1900 calories per day

Phase-3 (weeks 5-8): Increased Energy Booster = 40/40/20 @ 2300 calories per day

 

What Did I Eat?

I know people want to see EXACTLY what I eat so below are a few examples of my daily nutrition in each phase of my round of Insanity.

I hope this post on my own 3-phase Insanity Meal Plan has given you a few ideas on how to structure your own, or just follow mine exactly if you like! The point of this post was to point you in the right direction and show you how I get any kind of result I want from my nutrition! You can modify and adjust all you want so long as you are hitting your macros and getting your nutrients from wholesome sources!

Now its time to DIG DEEP and inspire others to do the same!

Hi Coach! Do you think 50/30/20 plan wouldn't be effective for Month1/2 as 40/40/20? I wonder which one to stick, since I have a lot of BF to shred.

Hey Todd, I'm using the my fitness plan app and I have a question.  How do you change the portion percentages?  Because I can't get out of the carb/fat/protein ratio of 55/30/15, I wanna have it at 40/20/40.
