Everything you need to know about the 21 Day Fix
The 21 Day Fix eating plan is a simple and effective way to keep track of portion sizes. The 21 Day Fix is a weight loss program fromPersonal Trainer Autumn Calabrese and Beachbody, a multi-level marketing company that sells fitness products, online workouts, and weight loss supplements (like their popular Shakeology) to consumers.
Are you wondering how to get started on the 21 Day Fix? Before starting 21 Day Fix, use that link to calculate your calorie target, determine your portion-control container count based on your weight and see how many containers you get to eat, and then use the colored containers to track your macros. It's really a simple eating plan.
The Fix is all about portion control. For 21 Days, you'll be following the eating plan and doing the workouts–even walking is considered a workout! You'll be impressed by the fast results you see after 21 days, and you'll probably want to do another round. And another. And another!
Have you heard about the Ultimate Portion Fix? It's Beachbody's update to the 21 Day Fix. They added two calorie brackets (E & F) and adjusted the existing brackets a bit. The information you'll find here on My Crazy Good Life reflects the Ultimate Portion Fix updates to the 21 Day Fix.
The Ultimate Portion Fix explains more in depth (in a series of videos) what the Fix is, what foods to eat, what foods to avoid, and why. If you're looking to study the program and understand more about how it works, you might be interested in purchasing the Ultimate Portion Fix.
Wondering what you eat on the 21 Day Fix? I've got the most up to date approved food list that you can download for free, as well as hundreds of 21 Day Fix recipes with container counts already done for you. I know it can be confusing to calculate your containers for each recipe, so I've done it for you.
Shakeology is a popular meal replacement product that is mentioned throughout the program materials. You can purchase it with the 21 Day Fix, and often Beachbody coaches will suggest that you use Shakeology. While Shakeology is a great meal replacement shake, it's very expensive and not necessary for results on the Fix. I've researched other meal replacement shakes that are free from artificial sweeteners and extra oils and are comparable to Shakeology–but cheaper!
