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. Are you wondering how to start the 21 Day Fix? Calculate your calories based on your weight and see how many containers you get to eat, use the colored containers to track your macros, and begin! It's really that simple.
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 here.
The 21 Day 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 results you see after 21 days, and you'll probably want to do another round. And another. And another!
Shakeology sometimes comes 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!
The 21 Day Fix is meant to become a lifestyle change–you can drink coffee on the Fix, have dessert (they're called treat swaps), and eat delicious meals that your entire family will love! This is a weight loss program that works. Just calculate your calorie target, determine your container count, and stay on track with your weight loss for 21 days.
You don't have to workout while doing the Fix, but if want to know more about the workouts you can find that information here. The 21 Day Fix workouts are done in order every day of the week for 21 days. If you'd like to learn more about the workouts and how many calories you can burn by doing them, as well as download a free printable workout calendar you can visit this article.
Meal planning on the Fix can help you stay on track and finish your round! We have 21 Day Fix meal plans for every bracket, and you can download them for free.

Have you heard about the Ultimate Portion Fix? It's Beachbody's update to the Fix. They added two brackets and adjusted the existing brackets a bit. The information you find here reflects the Ultimate Portion Fix updates to the 21 Day Fix.
