UPDATE October 2012:
There have been so many requests for the full meal plan that I’ve gone out to find it and I’m happy to say that you can view the full document just below:
Insanity Nutrition Guide (Download via Scribd.com – you may need an account there to download this to your computer)
The Insanity workout is as much diet as it is sweating to Shaun T’s 60-day, 10-DVD workout marathon. Food is the natural fuel that your body needs. It provides your body with essential nutrients and energy. Having the right diet to maintain energy levels throughout the Insanity workout is crucial. That’s why there is an Insanity nutrition guide included when you buy Insanity from the official store (as we recommend here at honestworkoutreviews.net).
You may or may not already own your copy of Insanity. If you don’t, then you’ll be pleased to hear we have a preview version of the Elite Nutrition Guide to share with you. All you need to do is click the image to the left. The best option is to right click and ‘save as’ to your computer.
Of course, sometimes people lose their nutrition guides, or even worse, they buy a pirate copy of Insanity without realizing it and end up without any of the added bonuses. It’s not nice when we hear of this happening, so we do try to do all we can to help. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to sell the full copy of the Insanity workout nutrition guide, as Beachbody does not allow that. They don’t want to encourage the pirates or crack copies, which is fair.

My personal favorite recipe is the Berry Protein Smoothie. You can sample that recipe from this Insanity nutrition plan PDF.
In each recipe, it lets you know how many calories are involved, and exactly how much protein, carbohydrate, fat and fiber you’ll gain by eating it. There is also a great guide on how to plan out your diet and nutrition over the course of the 2 months you’ll be working out to Insanity.
It’ll teach you how to determine your daily caloric needs, which is very helpful. This makes use of the ‘Harris Benedict Equation’. Don’t worry – it’s not rocket science and won’t send you screaming back to high school when you were told you needed to learn calculus to survive in the real world (yeah, right). It’s just a simple formulation that will determine how much energy you need to maintain your weight.
It’s not necessary of course, but it’s great if you’re like me – I like to keep track of everything so I can know for sure where I stand. If you like, you can just incorporate the new meals into your diet, cut down on the fatty foods and take it from there. It also tells you why it’s important to eat meals every few hours (as opposed to the conventional 3 meals a day, spaced apart widely in time).
Make sure you work out roughly 1 hour after eating. If you work out too soon after eating, you may lack the energy required to get through the workout.
