21 Day Fix

Postby JaneneF » Sat Aug 23, 2014 10:31 am

Hey, I'm starting beachbody's 21 day fix program (mostly to correct my terrible eating habits and learn portion control... I eat like a horse!)

I'm pretty excited although concerned it won't be enough food as I am in the lowest category in the program.

For those who don't know... It comes with coloured containers that represents a food group... Green = veggies, purple = fruit, red = protein, yellow = carbs, blue = fats (cheese, nuts, avocado etc) orange = seeds and salad dressings and teaspoon for cooking oils like olive or coconut.

Basically you fill your containers the allowable amount of times for your plan, in my case I get 3 greens, 2 purples, 4 reds, 2 yellows, 1 blue, 1 orange and 2 teaspoons.

Seems like a lot and you can do this without shelling out the dough as the green and purple containers = 1 cup, red = half cup, yellow = 1/3 cup, blue = 1/4 cup and the orange = 2 tbsp.

I think this will be an easy structured way to transition to a clean eating regimen as I tend to follow structured plans better than just winging it.

Plus it comes with workout DVDs that I will try as I already own p90x and insanity and have enjoyed those, and might incorporate them into the Fix workouts :)

Hey Cool!
My wife and I ordered a triple pack deal where we got 21 Day Fix pretty much for free (!!!) because we also ordered P90X 3 and Focus T25. ( I'm doing Insanity Max 30 right now and she's doing P90 X2).

Keep us updated , I am really curious about this program. I like that the workouts are 30 mins.

Im not trying to sound negative, but what happens after 21 days? does this program give you the knowledge to properly maintain a healthy eating regime afer the 21 days?

It is what you make of it. If after 21 days, you go back to eating horribly and not controlling your portions, obviously your results won't stay. I loosely follow the guidelines as I don't really believe in limiting super low calorie foods like vegetables to 3 cups/day.

I would really recommend learning to eat clean, you will feel better and have better results while maintaining a sustainable lifestyle.

I am thinking about ordering the program, but I don’t like fish or vegetables. Can I get by without eating any vegetables? I will eat lettuce and tomatoes, but that’s it.

If there's one thing that these highly advertised fitness "fix" programs don't tell you, it's:
Being healthy is a lifestyle choice that takes years of commitment.
Eat right. Exercise right. Sleep right. Repeat for your whole life.
It takes hard work, strict self control, and strong motivation.

You shouldn't temporarily eat vegetables or do push-ups because some person on a DVD tells you to...
but because it's good for you and you want to live a healthy life! :)

Good luck!

From a psychological standpoint, I believe (but could be wrong) 21 days is the time it takes your body to learn a new task.
