Have you seen the cute little boxes that come with the 21 Day Fix? I think they are like Mary Poppins’ bag- they look like a normal size, maybe even a little small (especially that yellow carb container) BUT it’s amazing how much food actually fits inside!
We are in the last few days of the 21 Day Fix challenge pack sale and with the announcement of the 21 Day Fix Extreme coming in February 2015, I’ve been inundated with questions about this program and what I think about it. So here is my no fluff review:
What I liked:
The food lists of the most nutritionally dense foods to eat for each container
No calorie counting just measure out your food in the container before putting it on your plate
Seeing what portion control really looks like
Eating, being full, and still seeing results
Meal planing to make sure I got all my containers in
What I didn’t care for:
After Tony’s silliness, I found Autumn’s workouts a little bland in presentation- definitely challenging but the moves are straightforward and uncomplicated. For a lot of people this will be a plus, but I like the complex, mind tripping, coordination from other programs.
My biggest challenge:
Eating only one blue container a day. My name is Diann and I’m addicted to healthy fats.
My ah-ha moment:
I only did this program for two weeks before jumping into P90x3 but I saw great results. I lost 5 lbs and 1 1/2 inches from my waist in 14 days. What I took away from this program was how to create more balanced meals and snacks. Before the program I relied way too much on healthy fats like nuts, cheese, and hummus to keep me full and wasn’t eating nearly enough veggies. The simplicity of the container system really does work, where nothing really clicked for me before. I still use the containers and meal planning pieces with other fitness programs because it’s the only food accountability system that works for me.
