I am a P90X graduate, just finishing up round two! When I was just a couple of weeks into P90X, I was very hungry all the time. I did not need to lose weight. I did P90X to get lean, toned muscles. My energy was draining too so I decided to add more calories to my diet. Not just any calories ind you! I needed good protein to get delivered to the muscles I was trying to tone.
I am a big fan of protein bars. They are convenient, don’t need to be cooked, and can go anywhere with you (except maybe a hot yoga class).
Each P90X Performance bar provides 18 grams of protein and 260 calories. I am a small person so it was a bit much! I divided the bar in 2 and ate half instead of the whole thing. For me the half bar was just what I needed before a P90X workout to help boost my energy and my hunger. If you are a male of average size, you will probably eat the whole bar.
The P90X Peak Performance Protein bars contain natural ingredients, which is very important to me. They also have added fiber and no trans fat – a real plus. Now for the best part – the P90X Peak Performance bars taste good! I used the Wildberry P90X bar and was happy with the taste. The bars are also available in Chocolate Peanut Butter and Café Mocha (will try that next!) Some other facts: 260 calories, 6g fat, 37g carbohydrates, and 18g protein. The Chocolate Peanut Butter has 20g protein!
You get 12 P90X Performance bars in a package for $23.95. That is $1.99 per bar. I was buying other bars at the market for the same price or more so the cost is very comparable but the ingredients gave me the extra boost I needed while doing those grueling P90X workouts and helped my muscles recover.
Click here to buy P90X bars at Team Beachbody. You will pay less at Team Beachbody and for shipping too (then if you buy from Beachbody.com). The shipping was $4.75 whether I purchased 1 package of bars or 4 so I got a few boxes and split the bunch with friends.
