I found it helpful to focus on the protein. With a good weight lifting program, lots of protein is vital if you want to see results. I do think though that eating clean is just as important. Without knowing anything about your current eating regimen, I would say that if you're new to clean eating, I would make that your primary focus. Really concentrate on cleaning up your diet. Get rid of the refined sugars, processed foods, white flours etc. Make sure you're getting in lots of water. If you've been clean eating for awhile then I would take aim at your macronutrients (your protein/carbs/fats) and focus on them. The P90X program has you start out extremely high with protein. (50%) That wasy WAY too high for me. I usually kept mine to 40/40/20 and think that is an easier plan of action for me. 50% protein is VERY high. As far as places to get your protein, focus on your lean meats (lean beef, chicken etc), I swear by eggs in the morning you can do 2 whole eggs and 2 egg whites (lots of protein there), cottage cheese (low fat), raw almonds, tuna. Lots and lots of veggies. That is what worked best for me.
