Nutrition Plan: Phase 1

The official P90X Nutrition Plan requires me to cut out almost all carbs from my diet during the first month. This is the so-called "Fat Shredder" phase -- a "high-protein-based diet designed to help you strengthen muscle while rapidly shedding fat from your body."

This sounds awful. I love eating bowls of cereal at all hours, and my go-to snack is Triscuits with cream cheese. I'm also a pizza fiend, and I have no qualms about eating half a bag of chips in front of the TV, either. Plus, I'm of Asian descent, and RICE IS THE FUCKING CORE OF MY PEOPLE'S DIET.

On the other hand, I'm fairly certain I had an undiagnosed eating disorder about 10-12 years ago (I'm no shrink, but eating nothing but frozen dinners and Triscuits for several years must be symptoms of some sort of mental illness), so if P90X requires total commitment to an extreme form of dieting, I'm confident I can "BRING IT."
