P90X - Does it Work?

Ok;. So Im getting to the point where Im seeing the gestation of moobs. Ive had the love handles for a few years.
In 2006, I remember seeing the scale and it reading 215. I remember telling my wife, holy crap. I weight 215!

Well, shit. Now Im probably 240. Im about 61 and carry the weight pretty well, in that Im not all floppy/flabby.

Ive done the Couch to 5K twice, and had success. Im thinking about doing it yet again, and at the conclusion of the program, looking at P90X.
Id like to do as much as I can from home. If the P90X program produces results, I may invest in a gym membership at that point.

Has anyone used this, and if so, how did you like it. Did you see results?

This, over and over and over. Unless you get a handle on what you eat and the ammount of calories you put into your body you will be fighting a losing battle. I speak from experience on this as well.

I used to be 275 - 285 lbs. (at 6' 2") 5 years ago. Started walking everyday and then started tracking what I ate via MyFitnessPal.com. Long story short I am now 225 lbs. and running almost everyday.

That's a good point I forgot. There's lots of good apps now that help you control what you eat. It keeps you disciplined.

I've always sat there on the couch and thought "I should start working out"...but never do and forget about it/disregard it.

for some reason the last week-ish, I've really kept thinking about it over and over. I didn't 'think' was all that fat etc, but after seeing pictures, I can definitely see myself as being a bit too big and needing to lose the weight. Especially when I read about what my weight should rougly be for my height etc.

They all work if you put in the effort. You still have to eat right though.

I always get a laugh out of commercials for stuff like Bowflex. They show a dude getting massively ripped and cut just from working out with the Bowflex. Right.

yeah; that much of a rip is basically 90% diet. those dudes probalby have like 2% body fat or something ridiculously low.

if I can lose about 50-60lbs this year, I'll be stoked. at that point, I might try to gains some muscle mass

Something you might want to try is the 30 day no sugar diet. My wife and I did this and it really helped kick our weight loss into high gear.

Link; http://olsonnd.com/30-sugar-free-days/

Don't get me wrong; it's tough to kick sugar. I went through withdrawls like any other drug but it's worth it.

don't underestimate 'just' walking either for losing weight and general health...if you sit at a desk all day (raises hand), regular walking is great

this may not be your thing, but this site allows you to record all your work outs and gives you points video game style to level up

https://www.fitocracy.com/home/

i've found it helps motivate, and also keeps records of everything you do so you can track progress

good luck

yeah; that's my problem. I have zero clue on what is right in terms of an overall diet.

I tried to seach /research some, but holy shit......there are probably 5000 websites that all say something different.

that myfitnesspal.com thing looks pretty cool. when I start, I'll probabl use that as a tracker/tool.

I'd also like to get a heavy bag; I had one back in the day and loved it. But, I'm so out of shape, I doubt I would get one until after a P90 (or similar) program.

are there any recommendations of a diet (not a starvation diet, but just a better diet in genearl), and or any supplements? I have zero clue about anything that is sold in a GNC lol.
P90X comes with a nutrition plan. Like Loochy said, if you work out and eat better you'll see results with any program. I did P90X a few years ago and I saw some pretty solid results. (I lost 30 lbs and gained some muscle) It's a great starting point if you need a jump start to get back into shape.

As far as diet goes, I really hate "dieting" because it seems so temporary. I've been doing paleo (well, close to paleo because I still eat beans) for over a year now. That has simply become the way we eat at my house and it works for us. We are "good" about 80% of the time or more and that made it a pretty easy lifestyle change.

Whatever you pick, good luck!

Make smoothies with a tablespoon of flaxseed oil and olive oil pre and post workouts. It helps with soreness and overall recuperation of the muscles.

You won't be as sore as you would otherwise.

Try The Rack:

http://www.rackworkout.com/?gclid=CL...FSWoPAodXC0A5A

I got it because I like having an apparatus to work with. But it's just like anything else, follow the exercise plan, follow the eating plan (which is really just a lifestyle change) and you WILL see results. Myself I am 200 lbs. I started the Rack in July and slowly built up to doing the 12 week plan. Since then I can do a ton of dips and pullups etc. which I was never able to do before. But, I have not lost one stinkin pound. Which means I'm putting on some muscle weight, but I really haven't changed my diet that much...so I'm sort of looking better but still carrying the gut.

If I really wanted to change my lifestyle, I'd really probably be pretty ripped. As it is, I look fine. but I'm 42 and I don't care to look like I did when I was 21 either...

If you're that big, I'm guessing you don't carry the weight a well a you think you do. Have your wife take a dozen or so candid pictures of you throughout the day and then take a good long look at them. The mirror can lie and make you think you're just "a bit too big". Fifty pounds is two cases of beer plus a twelve pack (including the weight of the cans and packaging). Try lugging that around for a few minutes to get an idea of how much better you will feel just from dropping twenty pounds, and you should be motivated to get up off the couch.

Go for a brisk walk of a mile to start...just do something. That will burn calories and keep you from eating out of boredom (major problem for me).
