Autumn Calabrese’s 21 Day Fix is one of the most popular Beachbody workouts and weight loss systems on the planet, and their nutritional drink, Shakeology is a huge part of the program. You don’t have to be on the 21 Day Fix, though, to enjoy Shakeology – anyone can take advantage of the shake’s benefits, but you can accelerate your results when it’s paired with a proven system like The Fix.
Below, we’ll briefly explain what the 21 Day Fix is and detail how Shakeology plays a role in this world-class system for weight loss.
What is the 21 Day Fix?
You can read all about the 21 Day Fix in our full review of the program. Because we’ve already detailed it extensively, we’ll keep our description here brief:
It really doesn’t get any easier or better than that. That’s the 21 Day Fix motto, and those three sentences really sum up the entire program, no matter how brief they may seem. The best thing about the Fix, though, is that it isn’t just another fad diet or weight loss system. It’s teaching you lifelong healthy eating and workout skills that you can implement for the rest of your life.
When you’re following the 21 Day Fix, you actually get to EAT. This may sound like a foreign concept in the world of diet and weight loss, but this isn’t the case with Calabrese’s program. The secret is that you’re eating the right portions, so even though you aren’t starving yourself, you should still see the weight fall off.
They make the portion control super easy with a set of colorful food containers that are included with your order. You’ve probably seen them before, but each container represents a different food group. Basically, you fill the containers, and then that’s all of the food and ingredients that you will need to eat great for an entire day. Again, we have a full rundown of the 21 Day Fix containers in another post, so we won’t get overly detailed here.
Just know that they take all of the guesswork out of deciding when and what to eat.
What is Shakeology?
Shakeology is a nutritional drink from Beachbody (I drink it almost every day), that can help you lose weight, give you a healthy energy boost, supports digestion and regularity, and can even reduce your cravings for junk food.
It is made with superfoods from around the world and includes a healthy dose of the following:
- Essential Vitamins & Minerals
- Adaptogen Herps
- Digestive Enzymes
Shakeology can be used as a nutritional or meal replacement shake, and when used correctly it can also be used as a weight loss or maintenance drink. I drink a shake almost every day right after my workout, and it pretty much serves as my lunch.
It comes in a variety of flavors and ordering options, which you can read all about in our full review.
How Does Shakeology Fit into the 21 Day Fix?
When you sign up for the 21 Day Fix (It’s currently less than $60 for the full program) you get the food containers we mentioned above, and also a shaker that is there specifically designed for your Shakeology.
When you’re on the 21 Day Fix eating plan, Shakeology will be used to help you improve your eating habits, control your hunger, and provide you with the energy you need to get the most of your 30-minute workouts. By following the Eating Plan, you will know exactly when to drink the shakes and how often you should be drinking them.
I can tell you, though, once you start drinking Shakeology, you will look forward to it during the day, especially when you’re on the 21 Day Fix. It really does taste great, has an excellent texture, and helps tide me over until dinner time. I order the Strawberry/Vanilla/Chocolate combo pack, but they have a bunch of different flavors and even a vegan option.
The 21 Day Fix is an amazing fitness and nutrition plan, and it wouldn’t be the same without Beachbody’s Shakeology. The shakes help provide your body with the energy and nutrients needed to power through your workouts, and to have great energy throughout the day. I always looked forward to my Shakeology drinks while doing the 21 Day Fix, and I still drink one every day, even after graduating from The Fix.
If you’re interested in trying the 21 Day Fix, Beachbody currently has a great deal on the full program – you can get everything for less than $60.
Shakeology can be purchased separately as well, so if you’re just interested in trying Shakeology, you can learn more about it here:
