If you’re looking for an updated and organized 21 Day Fix Food List to print and hang on the fridge, I’ve got one for you! In addition to the free printable, you will find tons of helpful tips and resources to be successful in your next round.
With so much changing information in various places, I needed a way to keep it all straight. So, I researched all of the resources and combined the updates into a single sheet. Then I separated the pages into two for those of you who requested a larger font.
I’m not a Beachbody coach, I’m just like you – someone on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.
This Ultimate Portion Fix food list is up to date as of January 2022. I’ve recently added a two-page printing option because there’s just too much information for you to easily see on one sheet. If you prefer to have the entire sheet on one page, I have that as well. While this list is unofficial, I check for changes monthly and give you the links to where I found the official updates.
Becca’s Tip: Download and print two copies of the list. If you’re printing the two-sheet option, place pages back to back in a clear page protector. Hang one on the side of your refrigerator and take one with you to the grocery store so you have an easily accessible shopping list to make refer to while you shop.
What’s the difference between the 21 Day Fix and Ultimate Portion Fix?
The Ultimate 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
- Plan A gets an extra green container and an extra teaspoon
- Mayo has been added to the list as a teaspoon
- Butter has been added as a teaspoon
- Unsweetened applesauce has been added
- Beef and chicken broth have been updated
- There are two new brackets: E and F. You can find 21 Day Fix meal plan PDFs for those brackets 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 21 Day Food List is my frequently updated list of updates.
Typically, I update this list 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.
Is the 21 Day Fix Food List in a certain order?
Yes! I know a lot of people are frustrated that the list isn’t in alphabetical order, but there is a reason for this. The items are listed in order from most healthy at the top of the list to least healthy at the bottom.
While all of these foods are healthy, the most nutritious ones are at the top. 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.

Which meal prep isn’t necessary on the 21 Day Fix, meal planning is–think of it like a budget that you have to follow, but with food instead of money.
What are the 21 Day Fix containers?
Each of the 21 Day Fix containers has a purpose. Together, they ensure portion control and color coded macronutrient categories.
Be careful when buying the containers, as I’ve seen many brands on Amazon that have the incorrect colors or sizes. Check out my Amazon store for the ones I’ve verified to be the correct sizes and colors.
The links here lead to my collections of recipes that contain at least one full container of that color for each serving, which is helpful for filling out your meal planner:
- Green Container: 1 cup, vegetables
- Blue Container: 1/3 cup, healthy fats
- Orange Container: 2 tablespoons, seeds and dressings
- Purple Container: 1 cup, fruits
- Red Container: 3/4 cup, protein
- Yellow Container: 1/2 cup, carbs
How do I calculate containers for recipes on the 21 Day Fix?
After you get used to it, it’s easy. I made a video for you about how to count containers for a recipe on the Fix. In short, you calculate the containers for the entire recipe first–then divide those counts by how many servings your recipe makes.
