One of our Beachbody slogans is Fitness – Nutrition – Support. The fitness is provided on DVDs from some of the very best celebrity trainers such as Shaun T, Tony Horton, Chalene Johnson and Autumn Calabrese. Support is provided by Team Beachbody coaches who help to motivate and guide people with the programs. Nutrition is provided by the well thought out nutrition guides. However, I find that the nutrition guide is often never read or lost. I did the very same thing when I started my journey with P90x over three years ago. The nutrition guide seemed overwhelming. I didn’t want to change my eating style. Now that I have multiple food sensitivities, most nutrition guides are not that useful to me, until I met the 21 Day Fix nutrition guide. Now I could eat what I am able to eat, but learn proper portions. My portion sizes were actually pretty spot on. The difference for me was increasing my protein and eating more frequently during the day. Even though I am very close to my ideal body weight, I lost 2.5lbs with the 21 Day Fix!! This included getting that curve in my waist line again! AWESOME!
What gets me so excited to share information about 21 Day Fix to all my friends? First, it’s 21 Days!!! Most people can commit to something for 21 days. It’s less than a month! 90 days, even 60 days can seem out of reach for most people.
Second, while Beachbody has come out with some awesome new programs such as P90X2, P90X3, Focus T25, Body Beast, these are quite intimidating for newbies. Yes, T25 is labeled as a beginner program and there is a modifier but Shaun T does move fast and I still found doing only the modifications quite challenging! So I was very happy that Beachbody gave us 21 Day Fix!!! While many of the moves can be found in some of our other programs, the 20sec break between moves allows you recovery time. Autumn does a wonderful job of explaining proper form. And even though I am fit, I just love watching Kat, the modifier. She always has such a positive, happy look on her face and she brings it! With the broad range of cardio, resistance training, pilates, yoga, plyo – something new every day – there is something here for everyone to love.
Third, did I mention the workouts are just 30min? Continuing with the phenomenal success of 25 min a day with Focus T25 and 30min a day with P90X3, 21 Day Fix is also 30min. It seems people are willing to work harder for 30min and therefore get same or better results than if they had worked out for an hour! Now you can workout at home in the time it would take most to get to the gym and back!
And last, while you still have to curtail purely junk food, learn how to eat the proper portion sizes for weight loss, and then once you reach your goal, learn how to adjust it maintain your weight and fitness levels with the simple nutrition guide. I also have other tools available to help you track your portions using the 21 day Fix system!!!
Quotes from my 21 Day Fix online support group:
“I lost about 12 lbs in the 1st round. I feel lighter. I’m never hungry. I was never hungry in the past before I started the program. I just did not know how to eat right. I would just grab something that was easy to prepare to satisfy my hunger. That something was usually unhealthy. Now I know how to plan a healthy meal with the appropriate portion. I was looking at Dr. Oz the other day and he had meals planned similar to the 21 day fix but he did not go into portion size. It has made a difference to me to know how much I need to eat and what to need to eat.”
“Ok, based on my journal I just finished my First Round. I spent most of the first with a sinus infection and struggling to get into a routine. This week I am down 4 pounds and 4 inches for a total of 8 pounds and 9 inches this round. I am looking forward to starting a new round this week and feel much more comfortable with where workouts and food prep fits into my schedule. Off to pack my containers! Have a great day everyone.”
“Well, I’ve been up and down for a few weeks, then leveled off for a bit and finally broke that cycle with a nice loss. Down 3.5 pounds, 3 inches this week for a total loss of 13 pounds, 8 inches so far. I still have a lot of work ahead of me but getting past being ‘stuck’ feels pretty good. My water intake has been the biggest change, increasing to at least 75 oz daily (I try for 120). It’s so much harder to do as we get older…but I’m all in.”
“I was drinking too much almond & coconut milk, and not drinking enough of water. I was eating too many nuts & sweets (Snickers Almond Bar) cookie bars, tortilla chips, and bottled salsa. I was eating bad. With this system I eat healthier and I’m not even hungry. I don’t even think about what I’m going to eat because my hunger is satisfied 24/7. I see why they call junk food empty calories, u always looking for something else to eat. With this program u r not craving for food. Your body is satisfied.” – See more at: https://sybilcooper.com/fitness/results-21-day-fix/#sthash.DWTDM4W5.dpuf
