The Everyday Way to Health & Fitness
Hi Sarah, I am a vegetarian. Shakeology on the other hand…is simply not worth the money you pay for it. Gail on March 29, 1: My personal opinion may be different, though…. Hi Bethany I want to try tbe 21 day fix but im not sure its right for me.
How to Get Ready for 21 Day Fix
And, you are right, the marketing propaganda has made weight lose a much more complex situation than it should be. If I am pounds how many calories do I need to burn a day to lose weight? The above comment confused me. Hi Dianna, A calorie deficit a day through diet, ecerise, or diet and exercise to cause about a 1 pound loss of fat over the course of a week. You have to take into account your metabolism and activity level, not only your body weight to create a daily calorie estimate.
The program does include the simple equation you need an I will be writing a blog post shortly about it. I just ordered the program. Based on my weight I will be in the lowest calorie bracket but my husband will be in the highest calorie bracket. Suggestions on how to make food for both of us at the same time with such a big difference in portions for things? Hi Bethany, I have learned a lot from your blog!
Just one question though, would I be able to use a little Stevia or raw sugar maybe a teaspoon or so in my morning coffee? THanks for all the info. Im starting the program tomorrow. Wondering if is ok if i work out first thing in the morning then drink the shakeology shake? In other words is it ok to work out on an empty stomach?
I had gastric bypass 15 months ago…94 lbs gone. Can eat whatever I like now,….. BUT, protein for most important nutrition factor. Will this work for me? I hope this helps! Hi, loving your blog, really informative.
Just a couple of questions — when measuring the rice has it been cooked first? And is cows milk semi skimmed allowed and if so what category does it fit in and how many fl oz can you have? Rice is measured out after cooking. I want to try the 21 day fix my only problem is I have had restrictive weight loss surgery and I know I will not be able to eat as many of the containers I am supposed to do you think this program could still work for me?
That being said, Nicole how far out from surgery are you? If you are still within a year out I would suggest that you just stick with the meal plan that your surgeon has given you. You may do the exercises if you want to purchase this program and getting moving will help you tremendously. Hi, I am planning on starting the 21 day fix postpartum. For example, a recipe would say it is 1 red, 2 green etc. Once it is all mixed together, it would make the portions off, would it not?
I ask because I will not have time to be making separate meals for everyone with 2 under age 2! Hi Nat, most of the recipes will have serving sizes, so a recipe would use say three containers per serving. You would eat your serving size and mark down the containers. In your example, if a recipe used only 1 red and two greens, I would double, triple, etc the recipe so it makes enough to serve your family.
Hope that makes sense. You would count the mustard greens as green and turnip as yellow. I have tried Shakeology and live it and have noticed a difference in my energy and overall health. However , it can get costly so I have been trying Fitmiss Deliight … What are your thoughts? Shakeology also keeps your digestive system regular, which also helps heighten energy levels. I currently do PiYo and I have a shake every morning.
I do 8oz of unsweetened vanilla coconut almond milk and slightly less than one scoop of shakeology. I have the Arbonne shakes and do not want them to go to waste, how does it compare to the Shakeology? I am really interested in the 21 day fix plan. I am in the calorie range. But, I read a comment from you previously that said if you want to lose, eat less….. I am trying to lose weight so should I down to the next level of calorie range?
I do workout daily if that makes a difference. Hi Christina, I rephrased my previous comment, that was not my intent for it to be taken that way. You are good at the calorie range for weight loss. The diet plan goes into more depth about the cxlore ranges for different goals. While looking at the different information available online about calorie intake, I noticed that my target caloric intake is over calories higher than calories a day.
Am I going to feel starved out on this program? Is there anyway to adjust the calories a day? HI Aj, If you calorie target to maintain your current body weight is calories, calories would be a good starting place for weight loss. And, yes you can adjust the number of calories once you get a feel for the program. But, first it would best to use the program as it is designed before tweaking it to meet your needs. I understand that shakeo counts as a protein but should one use the protein grams on the back of the bag?
Or is shakeo already counted as a red? Hi Dee, a scoop counts as a red container. You are right a scoop would not fit in a red, but that is what it is counted as.
Just one of those things. So much great info! Hi Jennifer, that is tough. But you can make it work. Here are a few ideas. Try not to eat large meals on the nights you work, keep healthy snacks handy if possible, prepare what you are going to eat before your shifts start, go light on carbs and higher in protein and healthy fats. And, be sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water through out the night. Hi Sky, it is going to be hard to follow without the containers or workouts.
But, do your best, stick to a whole food diet and you will be headed in the right direction. I have purchased the 21 day fix with shakeology. I work 12 hour shifts,making a fully balanced meal plan a bit difficult. Are there any suggestions to bes divide up the 5 meals throughout my day? Hi Cyndi, You use the containers tp portion your meals or snacks.
Protein is red, berries are purple. Hi Joann, It will work, you just need to stick with it and if you have to make adjustments until it does work. Hi Sarah, your results will be different.
But, I mean if you eat a piece of cake everyday durring the program your results would be different too. I have a question about family meals. I stay home with my 2 young boys and want them eating healthier, but I have no idea where to start as far as caloric intake, portions with them, etc. Is there a resource you know of that has reliable information for how to calculate their daily needs? Do you think I need to be as strict with them as far as portion sizes?
Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated! Hi Meghan, You should not have to restrict the portions. Hi I just ordered 21 day fix. Unfortunately Shakeology is very expensive but I do have a nutribullet and make my own kale shakes will that work for the moment?
If not what can I use? You will have to break down the ingredients in the kale shake down to what they would count as in the containers. Going to try the 21 Day Fx Challenge Pack glad to here the pack contains Shakeology too, looking forward to posting back here on my results.
Particularly referring to ingredients and the expense. Just a suggestion I have really. Why not point out that when u order the challenge pack it includes the Shakeology? I mean a bag of Shakeology costs almost the same. I only say this because I balked at the price too, til my coach made the above suggestion. Even my joints feel better!! Hi Danielle, Glad to hear Shakeology is working so well for you, I got my botfriend to start drinking it too and he said the same thing as you, that his joints felt better and were not cracking as much.
With the different colour containers and foods for each container, do you decide on what to eat for each meal? Basically you create you own recipe? Hi Danielle, Yes the 21 Say Fix is flexible in that it wants you to be able to eat what you enjoy. So you get to be creative, and it does come with a fex basic recipes to get you going. Hi Kathy, black coffee is best. Splenda is artificial sweetener and is not recommended. A tsp of organic coconut oil is what I recommend to people.
I would just need some clarification on the serving for this program…. Great website— thank you. Hi Rose, yes it is a cooked cup, so half a yellow dry, will come out to a full yellow when cooked. I start the program on Monday October 13 and I purchased shakeology but the individual bags does that count as one scoop like if I would have the container??
Hi Gaby, yes the individual bag servings are a red container. To get a little more bang for your buck you could order a day bag and seperate out servings into your own plastic bags. Hello- looking at your shopping list. Hi Kimberly, whole grain cereals only.
You can usually find these in the health food section at your grocery store. Hi Tania, after doing some research on Optifast, I would strongly advise against drinking it. It not only has two different sugars listed in the top three ingredients, it also has a lot of chemicals you should not be putting into your body…especially every day for breakfast.
If you do want want to purchase Shakeology, just buy a pure whey protein powder and add in some fruit to your daily shake. Im thinking of trying the 21 day fix. I have been doing some research.
Also, im thinking about doing different cardio classes throughout the week instead of doing her workouts. What do you think Bethany. Hi Pam, Shakeology and idealShape are different in ingredients.
You do not have to followe her workouts to follow the portion control eating plan. One being I hate Greek yogurt, so what do you do about the foods suggested that I hate?
How about exercise, does the exercise I do on my own power walking three miles a day count as exercise? Or does it have to be her exercises only. Does my calorie intake go up if I exercise more or less? Can I eat what I make for my family or do I have to eat differently?
Also, I hate artificially sweetners refuse to put into my body, what to do about that. Thanks for your time in advance.
Hi Victoria, you do not have to eat greek yogurt, that is just a sample of what I would normally eat. I would suggest not eating the foods you hate and opt for a foods in that category that you enjoy. Power walking is exercise. You might not have the same results if you only did the walking as the 21 Day Fix is cardio and strength training.
Calorie intake depends on your goals, if you want to lose weight you eat what the 21 Day Fix program recommends for containers, maintain or gain eat more, the guide book that comes with the program contains all of this information. The whole family should be able to eat foods from the 21 Day Fix eating plan. What exactly is shakeology?
Is their protein in it? I want to try the 21 day fix, however I would complete my workout first thing in the am, so should I have a protein right after? Hi Michelle, if you search Shakeology on my sidebar, you will get a few blog posts all about it. But, yes it contains protein. I use it as a meal replacement for breakfast during the week. And, I do think everyone should get in some protein post workout, especially after workouts that are strength based.
I have type 1 diabetes and this is the only balanced program out there that helps me to be very aware of the portions as I try to lose weight.
I gained a lot of weight after major surgeries on my feet and because I couldnt move, I gained. I use an insulin pump and this program is very carb couner friendly because of the portion sizes you can easily figure out the carbs to take a dose of insulin. I did a lot of research on this diet before I purchased it— definitely a great diet for people with BOTh types of diabetes. Do you know how greek yogurt with fruit counts? Hi Amy, Greek yogurt with added fruit is not allowed. I just wanted to say Thank You for all the good info on the 21 Day Fix.
I am awaiting shipment of my 21 day fix. Hello, A friend and I are going to start the 21 day fix and could not be more excited. However neither of us can afford to order the shakeology. I looked into alternatives and one of them was Garden of Life Raw organic protein.
Will this have the same affect of shakeology? Hi Ashley, the ingredients are not the same. Also, nutritionally Shakeology looks to be way ahead of the Garden of Life, probably why you see the differance in price.
This seems to be more of a protein shake then a total meal replacement. Whole foods are always going to be best. I like to describe Shakeology as the missing link that fills in nutrtional gaps, but it is never going to make up for a poor diet. In the end, Shakeology like the Garden of Life are supplements to your diet, not necessities.
Hi Bethany — is it ok to move down a calorie level while on the plan? Hi Beverly, no absolutely do not move down levels. If you drop calories to low your body may go into starvation mode and instead of dropping weight your body will actually store body fat as a survival mechanism.
Plus, in the long term the best way to lose and keep weight off is slow and steady. I just started the day fix and I really like it so far. I ordered the chocolate Shakeology but it seems to be really not agreeing with my stomach. Can I exchange it for the vegan? HI Patricia, the return policy is days. All information is on the receopt that canme with your order. My caloric intake is off the chart so I round down to Along with portions, my real problem is what and when I eat.
What is the problem with not eating all the food? According to the calculations my calorie intake should only be Do I need to limit the amount of containers that I eat being that the grid starts on a calorie intake?
Hi Julie, no you need to round up to calories. Consuming less calories for an extended amount of time can cause damage to internal organs.
I understand that other protein powder does not have the same nutritional value and does not come close. However can it be used as a red? I am just wondering because I can not afford shakeology right now but need a quick and easy meal for breakfast.
Hi Kathryn, yes a protein shake is red. Having a shake for breakfast to replace a meal, you want to look for a shake that contains protein sources from a couple different sources and be sure to mix or have something else to eat too, as a single protein shake will not keep you full for very long. It sounds gross but its really good.. Precut your fruit and you can grab ad go. Its a fast one. GNC makes a pre-bottled protein shake called Lean Shake You need to be careful with these ready made drinks as they are often high in sugars and use lower quality protein sources.
When I get a scoop of shakeology the scoop itself counts as one red, correct? Then anything I add in such as milk, berries, etc would just correspond to the colors they fit with right?
I also want to know can shakeology just be made with water as a snack, and if so is it still a whole scoop or half? Hi Andi, Shakeology by itself is a red container.
I would consider it a snack if you made it with just plain water, it would be a whole scoop of Shakeology that you would use. If you did mix in other foods you would count the corresponding food containers. Hope that helps, Bethany. Straight out of the 21 day fix book is a recipe that states the recipe of the Almond Paradise Shakeology drink as 4 fluid oz of unsweetened almond milk, 4 fluid oz of water, 1 tsp all natural almond butter, 1 scoop of strawberry or tropical strawberry vegan shakeology, and ice 8 oz glass of ice.
Blended together is one red, one yellow and one teaspoon. So you can be creative but you just have to account for what you intake. If she is doing 8 oz she does count it as a yellow.
I love Shakeology but today a friend is taking me to a new Herbalife Shake shop. Would I count the shake as a red container? Hi Tonya, looking at the harbalife shake nutrtion profile, it looks like you would need to drink two shakes and even then you are not getting the same amount of nutrtition.
It looks like these shake also contain fructose and dextrose, two fast acting carb sources. It would be best drink something like this immediatley aftrer your workout. Most people get their recommended iodine from iodized table salt. How would a person compensate for that? The diet is pretty restrictive on iodine rich foods such as dairy products.
Seafood, dairy foods that are not processed can get you the daily amount of iodine the body needs. If you are overly concerned, you might want to take a look at a mulitivitamin that contains iodine.
I did look into the multivitamin option. Unfortunately, only a little less than half of the multivitamins out there actually contain the recommended dose of iodine. This is important to me because I suffer from hypothyroidism. Just one half of a teaspoon of iodized table salt meets the recommended daily amount. Is that out of the question for the 21 day fix? Hi Tiawana, no not at all. Like I said the 21 df wants you to cut out the processed foods that have salt added to them.
You should always listen to your doctor. I know this post was a while ago but I feel I need to respond to this. Most foods we eat contain iodine in them. I have no thyroid due to thyroid cancer and had to go on a low iodine diet before having a radioactive iodine treatment. This was an extremely restricted diet.
Same thing with tofu products. Breads were off limits unless i made my own because most of them contain ingredients that have iodine in them. Obviously any seafood and also some fruits and vegetables. And this is just a small sampling of the entire list.
If hypothyroidism is a concern then you should probably be taking a thyroid replacement such as synthroid. I thought you could only have milk 3x a week? Hi Heather, This is just a companion post to the meal plan to give people ideas. My wife is allergic to ALL fresh fruit and gluten. My question is, what should we substitute for her fruit portions, and can she eat gluten free pasta, bread, crackers, tortillas, etc in liu of regular whole grain products?
Also, are we not allowed any sugar or salt? Hi Tiffany — eating gluten-free versions of foods should be fine — or you can opt for naturally GF grains like quinoa, oats, amaranth, millet, rice, etc.
Just try to opt for things without refined sugars in them or unhealthy chemicals. As for fruits, if she has OAS, she could eat cooked fruits or canned versions if she is able to tolerate it — it all depends on the severity of her allergy. There are ways to incorporate the health benefits of fruits, you just will have to do some research and be a little creative.
And no, sugar and salt are not allowed — remember this diet plan is to get you eating healthier for life, not just for three weeks. I hope this helps. On the 21 day fix infomercial it claims you can have dessert and wine as long as you eat in moderation of your colored containers…is that not correct?
Hi Marie, There is 21 Day Fix approved desserts, they are treats not everyday finds though. I notice in your schedule that you only have one yellow on the days you drink Shakeology. Is hat because you make it with milk.
I was thinking of making it with unsweetened almond milk which would be a red and a yellow—is that right? Hi Tori, I doubled the yellow container at dinner on Monday through Friday. And, yes you are right, you can count Shakeology with almond milk as a red and yellow.
I am not sure why you would only be allowed one yellow a day. Even in the lowest caloric intake level of calories, you get 2 a day. Stick with Autumn original plan and check out pinterest for 21 day fix and you will get some really good info! Shakeology is a red not a yellow. Like the article says, I did two yellow containers at dinner. If you blend it with almond milk yellow you do need to account for it. I drink it like that everyday. I use 1 red, 1 yellow and 3 purpels. This works great for me.
I will be starting this program on Monday the 1st and just doing as much research as I can before hand. I was wondering why you would use 3 purples for the shake? I would recommend only to mix in one purple fruit container at a time with the shakes.
Thank you for your blog! I have recently purchased the 21 day fix and I am having a hard time getting started with the meal plan and containers. I love your demo up top with options of how to lay out the plan. My question is can you tell me your time line for when you start breakfast and what time your last meal is?
Also do you have a suggestion for me because I work nights on Friday Saturday and Sunday. Just curious if you have any suggestions on how to approach the meal plan for that schedule. Hi Carolyn, great questions. I have breakfast aorund 7 in the morning, I try to sneak in a snack around 11, lunch at 2, another snack on the ride home and then dinner around 7 as my last meal.
I just ordered the program but did not get the shakeology. What are some breakfasts that would work instead of the shakeology? I usually just make my own fruit smoothie in the morning, will that work just as well?
Hi Martina, the portions are pretty generous honestly. But, the real take away from the program is, it teaches how to eat a well balanced diet. I had the same question. You advertise its about the portions but I need to know what each color container equals.
Hi Theresa, I guess you could add water to each container and measure them out that way, probably would not be exact, but give you a good estimate.
I am lactose intollerant…I am guessing the shakes have milk products in them. Do you get the same results without the shakes? Also will using lactose free products yogurt sadly there is not a lactose free greek yogurt. I know there is a coconut greek style and it is NOT good at all and milk make a difference? Hi Stephanie, Chocolate Vegan, or Tropical Strawberry Vegan Shakeology are made with plant protein instead of dairy, so those two might be okay for you.
If you can get the same results, is a hard question to answer. And, it is really not something to worry about, just do your best and your results will be great!
With the lactose free products, you really just want to watch out for added sugar and you should be okay. Have you actually tried Greek yogurt? Yes, it has lactose any real yogurt will but it has less than other styles. Hi what is the white box? Hi Marion, I am not to familiar with the herbalife shakes, I took a quick look at the nutritional values of the vanilla flavor and it looks like you would need to drink at least two to four herbalife shakes to equal the nutrtional values of shakeology.
Thanks for all the great info! Can I have any of the shakeology shakes? I love the Maple Pecan one. Hi Lori, yes Shakelogy is a staple of the 21 df program. Maple Pecan Shakeology sounds so good right now! Can you substitute Shakeology with just normal protein powder? I dont have enough money for both the fix and Shakeology….
Hi Kelly, protein powder is not a replacement for Shakeology. With that said, you can do the 21 day fix without Shakeolgy. Shakeology is recomemended because it has the ability to fill in any nutritional gaps and is very convenient when you are short on time. Eating this mangy fruits and veggies and whole foods it seems very unlikely one would be missing anything. Telling people that Shakology is the very best option seems very irresponsible to me.
Hi Brandy, I am assuming you are reffering to a comment that I replied to. I never say anywhere that the shake is the best option, I said whole foods are the best investment. I was talking personally about my nutrition in relation to a gap. I would not spend money on a shake that contained these ingredients no matter the price or would I recommend others to.
Can we do a fruit smoothie in the mornings with frozen berries? Thank you so much for this reply!! I have struggled for a year doing Atkins and only loosing 20 pounds. Yes I do workout! I am going to do this eating whole foods! I am making my list right now! Hi Alison, Usually water, sometimes unsweetened almond milk depending upon what else I am mixing in. Actually I believe Shakeology is the best out there and nothing else can compare to it.
Its always an option to do your workout with it, but in my opinion it makes a huge difference in your reulsts. Hi Bethany, I started the 21 day fix about a week ago. What is your sujestion so can get support? I get n this depress mood I want to just give up. Hi Joann, The scale is not the best for actually measuring results. I prefer pictures and measurements. If you think it is working, it is! Just take it one day at a time, and you will get there. Hi Lena, unfortunately, there is currently no GF diet plan version of the Fix, but you could easily create your own GF diet plan by using items on the very generous food category lists that conform with your dietary restrictions.
I hope that helps! Hope this helps, and good luck whether you decide on the Fix or on another plan. I am finding it really easy doing this gluten free. Partially because going gluten free did mean cutting out a lot of carbs. That being said I am exploring even more foods since starting this. Quinoa, amaranth making homemade polenta makes great pizza crust lots of optuons for sure.
I am 71 years and soon to be 72, i am quite heavy and have a lot of medical problems with heart,kidneys,and lungs , i cannot do the exceriseing like other people, what can i do to get in that portion of the 21 day fix, i have just started this 2 days ago and so far i am impressed with the fullness that i feel but would like to have some recipes to help guide me in the proper way to prepare them , would like very much if y9ou could help me, also i dont drive so there is a problem with me getting to the store, coouldi use the canned fruit that is in its own juice or no sugar added , that type of thing.
Hi Carol, Unfortunately, you really need fresh or frozen fruit. Canned fruit has nearly no nurtitional value as the canning process destroys most of the nutrients. Here is the link to my profile if you like to follow me https: Carol, I just wanted to add that anything you do is better than doing nothing. If all you can get is canned fruit than it is better than snacking on chocolate chip cookies or potato chips!
I understand where Bethany is coming from but you have to do the best you can do with what you have. While fresh fruits and vegetables will always be best for you, as long as you watch what you eat and keep moving, you should be able to take off some of that weight.
Try calling your local city or community help center. They might also have organic farmers that do the same. Hi Bethany I want to try tbe 21 day fix but im not sure its right for me. Hi, Results will vary by individual. The people I see that get the best results are those who follow the diet as is and push themselves in the workouts.
Im soon to be starting 21 day fix. Also, ordered the shakeology box with the individual packets. I am a little confused, so if I make a full packet am I supposed to fill a red cup? Or am I suppose drink the whole smoothie? If I drink the whole smoothie does it have to be substituted for any other cups besides the red? Hi Rena, Yes, one packet counts a red container, no need to measure it out.
You would also count any other foods that you add with their corresponding colored containers. If you have not started yet contact a Beachbody coach and ask about the deal!
Thanks for pointing that out Alexis. Here is the order link to the deal, seems to happen every months. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. You may also like.
