The 21 Day Fix Eating Plan
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.
Simply fill them as directed in the Eating Plan based on your calorie target. Combine this Eating Plan with one 30-minute workout a day. That’s all. It’s that simple.
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.
The secret is the 7 Ultimate Portion Fix Containers. Each one is color-coded for a different kind of food and pre-measured for the precise portion. If it fits in the container, you can eat it.
There are tons of Fix-friendly recipes on the Beachbody Blog, in Autumn’s cooking show, FIXATE on Beachbody on Demand, and in Autumn’s FIXATE cookbooks. Spoiler alert: There’s a recipe for macaroni and cheese. Like we said, 21 Day Fix wants you to eat!
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.
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
Take the guesswork (and self-control) out of portion control by measuring out your veggies, fruits, protein, carbs, and fats in these containers.
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.
Then, track your daily container portions on the Tally Sheets provided in the Eating Plan guidebook or on the Beachbody Nutrition App.
