The 21 Day Fix Eating Plan

Forget about counting, cups, and calories. When it comes to losing weight, simplicity equals success. The 21 Day Fix’s seven color-coded containers and Shakeology® shaker cup deliver exactly the right portions every time, so you never eat too much or (too little).

Fill them up as directed in the Eating Plan based on your calorie target and and you will lose the weight. Choose from the regular or vegan Eating Plans based on your dietary needs.

The 21 Day Fix Container Guide

It’s not another diet. In fact, it’s exactly the opposite. 21 Day Fix encourages you to eat – only in just the right portions, so you don’t feel miserable and deprived—but you can finally start losing weight.

What’s the secret? Our 7 Portion Fix Containers. Each one is color-coded for a different kind of food, and pre-measured for the precise portion. You’ll never have to “eyeball” your measurements again—if it fits in the container, you can eat it. Combine this eating plan with one 30-minute workout a day. That’s all. It’s that simple.

3 Steps for Successful 21 Day Fix Meal Planning |

Meal Planning

Meal planning is key for weight loss. Committing to clean, portion controlled food every day will help you stay on track so you can get the best results. The 21 Day Fix Tool Kit includes a Meal Planner to help you visually map out your meals for the day, but we recommend using any system that helps you stick to the program.

Meal Prep

First comes planning, then comes prepping. We’re all about meal prepping here at Beachbody. Taking the time to prepare nutritious, homemade meals for the week sets you up for success. Having the right food at the ready will help you stop junk-food cravings, hungry episodes and all those setbacks we’ve had from time to time. Like Autumn says – fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

How To Use The Containers

The Ultimate 21 Day Fix Container Guide

If it fits in the container, you can eat it!

Take the guesswork (and self control) out of portion control by measuring out your veggies, fruits, protein, carbs and fats in these containers. To better understand the containers, check out this container guide.

Then, review your 21 Day Fix Container Plan, which is determined by calculating your daily calorie target. Your specific Container Plan will tell you how many of each container you can have per day. For example, if there’s a “3” by the green container (veggies) then you will fill the green container with veggies three times a day.

Next, look at the Container Food Groups. Fill your containers with your favorite healthy foods from the Food Group lists in the Eating Plan guidebook (pg. 16).

Then, track your daily container portions on the Tally Sheets provided in the Eating Plan guidebook (pg. 8) or on the Tracker App.

Check out this 21 Day Fix container rundown:

  • Green Container: Veggies like broccoli, spinach and even pico de gallo.
  • Purple Container: Fruits like blueberries, strawberries, mango and banana.
  • Red Container: Proteins like chicken breast, salmon, eggs and tempeh.
  • Yellow Container: Carbohydrates like sweet potato, brown rice, tortillas, whole-wheat bread and wine (yes, wine).
  • Blue Container: Healthy fats like avocado, cheddar cheese and cashews.
  • 2 Orange Containers: Seeds and dressings like pine nuts, cashews, cheddar and mozzarella.
  • Teaspoons: Oils and butters like peanut butter, olive oil and mayonnaise.
  • Lastly, the containers come with lids, so feel free to use them as storage, or simply as a tool for portion control.
