Hammer and Chisel is one of the newest Beachbody workout programs that you can try out. Unlike most, Hammer and Chisel keeps women in mind when not only dieting but toning muscle.
What kind of workouts are there on Hammer and Chisel?
There are workouts that focus on growth and tone and there is even a complete nutrition guide to help you get the best results. Similar to the 21 Day Fix container workout plan, Hammer and Chisel’s nutrition plan uses portion control to ensure you get what your body needs to handle those workouts while losing weight.
All you need to do is find the right meal plan for you and keep in mind that the 21 Day Fix plan is compatible with Hammer and Chisel.
Why do I need a meal plan for Hammer and Chisel?
Not everyone has to have a meal plan that follows the Hammer and Chisel nutrition guide. Some people can just wing it and have things turn out alright.
If you are looking to build muscle, maintain weight or lose weight, if you are a Beachbody coach, or just part of team Beachbody looking to make the most out of your new Hammer and Chisel program…you should at least TRY a meal plan.
I’ve found that having a plan in place makes shopping easier, I spend less money. Meal plans also make progress easier. I don’t eat without thinking when I have a meal plan in place! With container based programs it’s nice to have a meal plan set up so you know that you are getting your recommended containers in each and every day.
The fast answer is that you don’t have to use a meal plan but if you give it a try you might find that you prefer it, and you might even seen better results!
