I just finished my third week of P90X and I weigh about 1.5 pounds more than when I started. I needed to increase my calories because I wasn't able to make it through the workouts so I added about 100 calories per day to my range and started eating a few more complex carbs. Last weekend we went camping and I was not within my calorie range, but wasn't too much over either. So I wasn't surprised when I was up last week but quickly lost the water weight during the week, only to gain a little back by today. This week I've been very close to my range but have found myself REALLY hungry at the end of the day. The P90X nutrition guide says I need 2400 calories per day! I'm at just under 1900. I'm wondering if I'm up just because I'm gaining muscle, over my range, or under what I'm supposed to eat for my workout schedule. It's a little frustrating but I'm thinking that this is an experiment for the 90 days and I want to do it and see what happens. We'll see. Wish me luck!
