Week One of the 21 Day Fix diet is DONE! And you know what? It wasn’t awful – if anything it was very manageable. Since I kept hearing amazing things about this program, as a non-beachbody coach I really wanted to try this program out and give an unbiased review.
If you just want my 21 Day Fix Meal Plan – skip to the bottom of this post. Promise I’m not offended!
So many of the reviews I read were from coaches, which is great, but I never knew if they were telling the “whole truth” just to sell the program. (Coaches – please – don’t take offense to this. I know there are great amazing beachbody coaches out there. You all rock. I think it’s great you are inspiring others to be healthy.)
And you know what? I truly feel like people were being very honest when they said anyone could do this plan. Really, the food was the hardest part, but with planning even that wasn’t hard.
I fell into the 1800-2099 calorie food plan on the 21 day fix diet and honestly I had a really REALLY hard time eating as much as it called for. Most days I ended up a meal short or at least a carb short, and I certainly was not hungry in the least bit. I kept my week one meal plan really simple, and meal prepping made it easy to grab an alternative meal if I wasn’t feeling into what I had scheduled/planned to eat.

I was bad about taking pictures of every meal every day, but here is a pretty good idea of what my meals looked like and how big they were. Like I said – I was NEVER hungry.
For Meal Prep I did the following:
- Boiled Quinoa
- Roasted Veggies
- Cooked Chicken Breasts
- Cooked Ground Beef
- Sliced/Diced my raw veggies
- Put berries/fruit at eye site in fridge
Another thing I did was set an alarm on my phone to remind me to eat. Yes, I seriously need a reminder. Part of my weight gain is that I would be busy all day, and then once I finally realized it I was so hungry I’d make poor choices.
So yeah – Meal Planning and Meal Prep are probably the two biggest things you can set yourself up for success with this program.
Plus I’m down 3 lbs this week!! #Winning!
I will talk more about the workouts in my week 2 recap. Here is my 21 Day Fix Meal Plan for week 2. I kept it simple again. I adjusted what didn’t work last week, and made sure I had no heavy meals after my workout.
