It is time to get that body in shape – 21 Day Fix is both workout program and nutrition plan that will give you amazing results within short period of time.
If you want to get fit, working out is important. But exercises will only get you so far, and without necessary adjustments regarding your diet, it is safe to say that you will continue to see your dream body only in magazines.
Now, in all fairness, regular working out routine isn’t easy to maintain and most of us have problems balancing going to the gym with already packed schedules. Taking good care about nutrition can be challenging as well, for numerous reasons.
Again, lack of time can be a troubling factor, but not only one; with too much information out there and not enough expertise it can be difficult to balance your diet correctly.

What is 21 Day Fix Containers Eating Plan?
Beach Body created special color coded container system to help you organize your diet. There is a set of containers with different sizes and colors. Size determines the amount and color the type of food – simple as that.
No more headaches about precise measuring your food or annoying calories counting. You only need to pick your favorite food and put it in the right container and if the amount fits in, you get to eat it all.
First thing you need to do is to determine the calorie bracket you’re in, which depends on your weight and targeted weight loss.
Formula for determining how much calories you need
This is the formula for determining how much calories you need daily:
- Take your current weight in lbs. x 11 = Calorie Baseline
- Calorie Baseline + 400 (Calories Burned during the Fix Program) = How many calories you need
- Caloric Needs – 750 (Caloric deficit to lose weight) = Calorie Target for the Day
Color Coded Containers explained:
- 1 Green – vegetables
- 1 Purple – fruits
- 1 Red – proteins
- 1 Yellow – carbs
- 1 Blue – healthy fats and cheeses
- 2 Orange – seeds and dressings
Apart from the workout program and colored containers, in 21 Day Fix kit you will also get the Eating Plan book, which will help you through the meal organizing process. After filling up the containers, you choose the eating order.
Beach Body recommends you plan for 3 main meals and 2 snacks in between. There are many delicious 21 Day Fix approved recipes available online, so it is rather easy to plan meals and snacks for the entire week. For better organizing you can use Excel sheet to create your own weekly eating plan and put it on your fridge, so you know what is planned for the day the moment you get up in the morning.
