The 21 Day Fix Meal Plan and Food List – Any Updates for 2017?

the meals of the 21 day fix

The 21 Day Fix is a Beachbody workout and diet plan from world-renowned fitness expert, Autumn Calabrese. While the 6 different workouts are a huge part of the program and will go a long ways to helping you get in shape and lose weight, the diet plan plays a vital role as well. If you’ve seen the ads or are familiar with the program at all, then you know that the colorful food containers play a big part of the program, and are designed to make it easier than ever to eat the right portions and food for accelerated weight loss.

That said, what the heck do you actually put in those containers and does the food really taste good? A lot of the advertising claims that you can eat the meals you want without having to worry about portion size, but is that true? Let’s find out…

The Meals

Your 21 Day Fix meals are going to be healthy, taste great, and should provide you with enough food to keep you from having the dreaded “crash” at some point during your day. They make it super easy to organize your food for the day with their 6 colorful containers, so as long as you use them as your guide, you should be all set. Plus, when you sign up for the Fix, they have a meal planning guide that will tell you exactly what foods to buy, the meals you should prepare for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and any snack you will want to eat over the course of your day.

Here’s what you’ll be putting in your food containers, and what will form the base of your meals for the day:

  • Green Container: Veggies
  • Purple Container: Fruit
  • Red Container: Proteins
  • Yellow: Carbs
  • Blue: Healthy Fats
  • Orange: Seeds & Dressings

All of these ingredients will used to prepare the meals that you will be eating for the day and will be a guide for your meal planning efforts. Let’s take a look at what kinds of foods that will make up each category, though, so you will have a better idea of what you’ll be buying when heading to the grocery store.

It’s important to keep in mind that the program provides you with everything that you’re going to need for your meal planning, including a food list. I like to take the list with me when I go grocery shopping, just so I am making smart choices when heading out on my own.
