The 21 Day Fix is a fantastic program that I recommend to 95% of my customers. Why? Because it WORKS! This easy to follow program focuses on portion control and clean eating. It also incorporates 30 minute daily workouts.
The Meal Plan
I like to call the "diet" portion a meal plan because it is a total lifestyle change, not a diet or a quick fix. It will teach you how to eat proper portions and not give up the foods you love.
The main focus of this program is portion control; something that our super-sized world has warped our views on. With the program you would get color coordinated, portion controlled containers that correspond to each of the food groups. The containers are already the correct portion for each food group, so you don't have to worry about measuring.
You are allotted a certain number of each container each day. You can eat pretty much anything you want, as long as it fits in your container. You can still have wine and chocolate too...they are worked in to the program. (we need this some days!)
The program comes with a guidebook that lays out what foods go in which containers, that way you never have to guess which foods go where. The guide book also comes with an eating out section that has our favorite eat out food and their container equivalents.
Your container allotment is the perfect balance between a calorie deficit to help you lose weight and still fuel your body so that you're not hungry. My favorite part about this is that once you reach your goal weight, you can adjust your number of containers to maintain your weight too.
The meal plan can be easily applied to any type of workout routine and applied to any type of lifestyle.
Since 80% of your results come from your diet, this is a perfect program for those that want to lose 10 pounds as well as those who want to lose 50 or more pounds.
The workouts are all 30 minutes long. (perfect for busy schedules!) They are repeated moves that last for 60 seconds, with breaks in between. There is a wide variety of workouts, a different one each day. There are cardio days, pilates, yoga, and strength training. They are designed to hit trouble areas. For women, that is usually our butt, thighs, hips, and stomach.
There would be some equipment required, but not much. You would need some free weights (I haven't used anything over 10 pounds) or resistance bands. You can also use a yoga mat, but it isn't essential.
I love the workouts because they are short, intense, and you really feel like you worked.
