30 Satisfying High Protein, Low Carb Recipes #P90X – Marvelous Mommy (2024)

Recipes, Top Page, Weightloss

I started P90X one week ago today! I’m exactly 8 days in. I’m following the P90X workout schedule and meal plan guide.

I started doing P90X in 2009 after Nataliewas born and I lost 60 lbs. And then again in 2011 after I had Haley.

However, I’m doing the LEAN workout plan this time. (I’ve done the Classic in the past.)

I consider myself skinny, but not fit, and honestly not very healthy. I have been drinking Mountain Dew on a daily basis for years… and years, and years. See, told you, not that healthy.

I’m trying to change that though.I quit smoking January 1st (again) and signed up for a Warrior Dash 5K, coming up this April.

We are going to St George Island for vacation in 54 days, and I’d like to be in better shape than I am now for the beach.

I’m trying to focus on the first 30 days for now. That’s a short-term goal I feel I can hit.

Starting Weight: 145.0

Current Weight: 140.8


Workout everyday for 1 hour

At least an hour 6 days a week, some of the workouts are longer. P90X works for me. I like having a video to follow. And one that will push me to the limit.

Drink more water, less co*ke

And by co*ke, I mean Mountain Dew. I also cut out all alcoholic beverages.

Eat high-protein, low-carb meals

You need protein to build muscle and you need carbs for energy.

I need my food. I like food. I get “hangry” if I don’t get enough food in me.

I am aLEVEL 2, based on my weight and body fat. Each square represents 1 serving.

  1. just exactly what I need..Thanks Amy for sharing it…I really need the exercise and the low carb yet satisfying menu as well. That chicken fajita soup looks so tempting..as well as chicken skewers.


  2. I have been looking for ways to eat better and these recipes look amazing! I can’t wait to try them all out!


  3. I think any little changed and help and sometimes making small changes and fully adapting to those first instead of doing a complete overhaul help people to stick to it more. I used to drink soda almost none stop, would never think about drinking water. Getting pregnant made me think of my body in a completely different way, my body was the source of my child’s nutrition and that’s the day I gave up that crappy stuff and only ever drink soda on occasions. Maybe once or twice a month. Small changes can be less intimidating.


  4. All of these recipes look amazing! I try to drink more water too, its my downfall for weigh management.
