Can I stay on the P90X Fat Shredder diet for longer than the first phase?

Yes! If you want to lose body fat and weight quicker, stick with the P90X Fat Shredder Phase as long as you want and as long as you don’t have any kidney problem. I followed the Fat Shredder diet for pretty much my entire first rounds of P90X and Insanity workout. However, if you hit a plateau while on the Fat Shredder diet, then move to the next phase.

The 3 P90X Nutritional Phases do not have to coincide the 3 workout months. The “phases” simply mean the phases of one’s physical need based on their goal.

Per the p90x nutrition guide:

This plan is designed to change right along with your 3-phase workout demands, providing the right combination of foods to satisfy your body’s energy needs every step of the way.

While P90X is designed as a 90-day program, you might choose to alter your choice or timing of one or more of the plans. You can follow any phase at any time based on your nutritional level. These are general guidelines recommended here.

The selection of the different phases depending on your GOALS and one can switch to the different phases at ANY time.

If your goal is to:

“Strengthen muscle and shed excess body fat” – 50/30/20

“Maintain Phase 1 changes with additional energy for midstream performance” – 40/40/20

“Support peak physical performance and satisfaction over the long term” – 20/60/20
