#21DayFix Review

So last week I completed my 21 Day Fix and I have to say that I was more than happy with the results!

Basically the 21 DF is a three week program that zones in on clean eating and portion control using these easy to use color coded tupperware.  It also has 30 minute exercise programs to help rev up your metabolism and burn calories.

The Workouts

Day 1: Total Body Cardio (cardio with weights)
Day 2: Upper (sculpts and tones those arms)
Day 3: Lower (also incorporates weights for maximum calorie burn)
Day 4: Pilates (really focuses on your core)
Day 5: Cardio (burns fat)
Day 6:  Dirty 30 (my favorite!  Total body sculpting)
Day 7: Yoga (stretch out those tired muscles)

Plus: 10 minute fix for abs for days you're really running short
Bonus:  Plyo Fix (get jumping)

The workout all came with a modifier and I loved that not all the people in the videos had cookie cutter bodies, all body types were represented.

The Containers

Green: Veggies
Purple: Fruits
Red: Protein
Yellow: Starches and Carbs
Blue: cheese/healthy fats/nuts
Orange: dressings

How It Works

You use some magical formula in the user guide to figure out how many calories you're allotted for the day and then that gives you the number of each container.  I had 3 greens, 2 purples, 4 reds, 2 yellows, one blue, two oranges, and 2 tsp.  I thought I would be starving, but it was a lot of food!

You're able to swap out a yellow for a treat (wine, chocolate, etc) three times a week...I might have cheated just a drop in the wine department!  I also had my coffee every day.

My Thoughts

I love this program.  It taught me a lot about my eating habits.  For example, I had a really hard time eating enough protein.  I struggled with that a lot.  I was also eating way too many sweets.  I didn't realize how often I was nibbling on sweets until they were severely restricted from my diet.

Biggest Challenge

The hardest thing for me was the planning.  I'm a meal planner, always have been, but it took me a week to get used to trying to tick off each food group in my meal planning.

Biggest Reward

I hit my goal weight in the second week and seriously toned up.

My Results

I lost 5.5 lbs and 5 inches.
