You are ready to get started and see that daunting list in the beginning of the book. If you have chosen the Portion Approach you probably meal and snack solutions that are quick and flexible. This approach does just that and simply gives you foods to choose from with a daily allowance of portions.
Taking the list of approved foods and translating it into a manageable grocery list can seem daunting. There are so many foods you may feel overwhelmed. Try not to be.
Choose the foods you like, several from every group, and buy those this week. If you don’t eat all of them or wish you had something different, adjust next week’s grocery list to fit your needs. Below you will find a sample grocery list for Phase 1 (the Fat Shredder Phase) of the Portion Approach
Boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts
Fat-Free Ham Slices
Whole Wheat Bread
Whole Grain Cereal
Whole Wheat English Muffins
Low-fat Refried Beans
Cottage Cheese, 1%
Fat-Free Salad Dressing
Remember this grocery list does not have to be yours. It’s just to give you an idea of a good variety for one week on the Fat Shredder Phase of the Portion Approach. You have a much more extensive list of available foods in the P90X Nutrition Guide.
