RE: P90X as a vegan?

Believe it or not, athletes who work out at high intensity levels require only slightly more protein - a level most Americans already surpass in a typical diet (vegan or not). So don't feel any pressure to spend extra money for extra protein. You should get it naturally by increasing your calories, which usually follows increasing activity level.
