One of the great things of the 21 Day Fix is that it is always evolving. Also, one of the most confusing parts of the Fix is that it’s always evolving! With so many resources, I needed a way to keep it all straight. I collected all of the sources and combined updates into a single updated 21 Day Fix food list and am sharing it with you.
This food list has been updated last in October 2019.
JUST TAKE ME TO THE 21 DAY FIX FOOD LIST ALREADY!
I have readers from all levels of comfort and experience with the Fix on my site, and I receive a lot of questions about it.
To better serve all of my readers here at My Crazy Good Life, I’ve made a commitment to put a ton of helpful information in all of my posts.
If you’d like to skip over the information about the Fix please simply scroll to the bottom of the page, where you will find the subscription box to access this food list. There is also a video on this page about how to do this.

What’s the difference between the 21 Day Fix and Ultimate Portion Fix?
The Portion Fix is the new and updated version of the Fix. There are a few updates with the Ultimate Portion Fix–but nothing huge. Here are some of the highlights:
- Pickles have been added as a green container
- Coldcuts are now required to be nitrate free but not low sodium (maybe because low sodium is so difficult to find for some people?)
- Plan A gets an extra green container as well as an extra teaspoon
With regard to the eating plans themselves, there have been two additional plans added–E and F. You can read all about them and find examples meal plans here.
Is this an official Beachbody Food List?
There is nothing official about this list, but I do give you links to the official resources that I used to create it. This 2019 21 Day Food List is my frequently updated list of unpublished updates to the Fix.
Unpublished means that Beachbody hasn’t printed these updates in one place yet–I update it when Autumn gives a container count for something on Instagram or Facebook, when a BB employee confirms something in their forums, or when there is an update from Beachbody that hasn’t made it to print yet.
Why should I consider following this food list? It’s not written by Beachbody.
Again, this is not an official Beachbody food list. This is what I have compiled from several sources on the web.
The items that I have added (from sources referenced in this post) are in gray, so you can see clearly what has been added. Anything black was in the original food list from Beachbody–the one that came in your package.
Is the Food List in a certain order?
Yup! I know a lot of people are frustrated that the list isn’t in alphabetical order, but the items are listed in order from most healthy at the top to least healthy at the bottom. You should know that all of the items are healthy–whole foods, nutritious foods, and the best foods you can choose.
If you’re looking to buckle down past a plateau and continue losing weight, for example, I’d choose sweet potatoes over brown rice, or chicken breast over beef.
How do I begin the 21 Day Fix?
Getting started on the Fix isn’t hard. Click the link to read my overview of the program to help get you started. Basically, calculate your bracket, read the food list, and off you go!
The Fix has an exercise program as well. Many people have seen weight loss just by following the nutrition program or nutrition plan, but I recommend incorporating an exercise program as part of a well-balanced plan. Even if you don’t follow the fix exercise program, you can always incorporate other programs–even walking. Do what you can, but don’t overwhelm yourself to keep it sustainable.
Here is a huge list of recipes for you–all separated into categories for easy selection.
Do I have to meal prep on the Fix?
Nope! While meal planning on the Fix is encouraged, don’t stress and think that you have to meal prep to be successful–you don’t.
How do I know if something is Fix approved?
The focus isn’t on fat/calories–it’s on the quality of the food that you’re eating. For more details, check out this article on how to tell if something is approved–it’s super helpful when you’re starting out!
How do I calculate containers for recipes on the 21 Day Fix?
I made a video for you about how to count containers for a recipe on the Fix. I hope it’s helpful!
In short, you calculate the containers for the entire recipe first–then divide those counts by how many servings your recipe makes.
What other Beachbody programs are out there?
In addition to the Fix, you might love the Extreme version–it’s a more…hard core version of the Fix. You’re allowed less carbs, no treat swaps, and the workout program is a bit more targeted. If you’re a member of Beachbody on Demand, you can choose from a TON of different workout programs for one yearly price.
In addition to exercise programs, Autumn Calabrese has a cooking show and the Fixate cookbook. Here’s my unofficial review of Fixate: I’m not huge fan of either the cookbook or show because there are inconsistencies with the tenets of the program.
While Fixate has a lot of recipes, many of them require a ton of ingredients that are either expensive and seldomly used, or both. They also include foods that are not Fix approved, and many have incorrect container counts.
