Was reading through the p90x nutrition guideline book and they recommend a 50-30-20 diet plan for fat loss. However, isn't that way too much protein? I'm 5'8" about 146lbs and my maintenance is around 2400 calories.
If my diet was 50% protein, that would be roughly 300 grams correct? isn't that way too much?

Please disregard the P90X diet plan.
Low carb + Low fat = fail.The above statement/post does not represent the opinions of anyone in real life. This is the internet. Not real life. Anyone who cannot grasp the difference between the two lacks the basic intelligence necessary for survival and should not be allowed to form opinions.

dont go off ratios. P90x isnt really a fountain of nutrition knowledge. Read the stickies.

In my opinion and as a p90x graduate I can honestly say you need to follow a better diet plan. Their diet is very basic and needs changes.

construct your diet using stickies in the nutrition forum.
100x better than what you get from p90x diet plans..
even though I've never tried p90x myself, my friend did it last summer following a typical p90x diet and he ended up losing hair + no sex driveIIFYM - Try to get most of your macros from whole foods. They are high in micronutrients and are needed to maintain overall health
