PiYo is a a pretty cool home fitness program from Beachbody. As you might guess from the name, it combines Pilates and Yoga and builds a ton of strength.
The PiYo program is a great choice for anyone who needs a low impact workout program that is coupled with an easy to follow nutrition program. I love that the nutritional aspects of the PiYo diet are similar to that of the 21 Day Fix!
What is PiYo?
PiYo is a low impact exercise program that includes high intensity moves! It makes great use of the Pilates world as well as some yoga and fat burning processes. The goal is to help you burn fat, carve out muscle, and gain a more healthy overall lifestyle.
It’s a common misconception that you can’t workout in an intense way if you have joint problems or pain. You don’t need to lift weights or do crazy jumps in order to make progress and get into the best shape of your life.
The creator of PiYo is Charlene Johnson and she’ll take you through the process in video workouts. There’s no crazy dancing to learn, there’s no wild equipment to purchase, and it’s an excellent way to gain flexibility and strength.
What is the PiYo diet that goes with the workouts?
The PiYo diet makes use of the container based nutrition program, not unlike the one used for other Beachbody programs like 21 Day Fix, 22 Minute Hard Corps, and more. It’s goal is of course to help you lose weight but also to get you in a range for your calorie target each day.
The diet breaks down into about 40% carbs, 35% protein, and 25% fat. That being said, you will have to use the provided program materials to calculate your bracket. There are four different brackets, based on a calculation that you walk through at the start of your PiYo journey, each bracket has certain calorie and container intake requirements on a daily basis.
There is an approved foods list that you use to select your foods for each container. Vegetables, protein, fruits, etc. You’ll never run out of choices, there are so many delicious PiYo recipes out there! Having a food plan will help with your weight loss!
How do I use this free printable PiYo food tracker?
Just fill in your calorie goal and how many servings of each food group you get, and add your meals either before or after you eat. I like to add it all the night before so I know exactly what I’m eating with every meal of the day.
