My first 21 day fix absolutely changed my life. Prior to starting the program, I thought I was doing a great job at eating healthy. I ate fruit and vegetables daily. I ate a lot of fresh, unprocessed foods. Tried to stick to brown rice and whole wheat bread and pastas and I was pretty limiting of my sugar intake. Sounds ok right? But I was still doing a lot of things WRONG!
I wasn’t eating NEAR enough veggies in my diet, way too many fats (like a whole avocado for example oooops!!) and carbs, skipping meals all the time (mom life), and snacking on the wrong foods late at night! The fix uses this amazing color coded container system that teaches you how to measure your portions properly and get exactly the right amounts of each of the food groups in your diet. I couldn’t believe how simple and doable it was for my busy schedule, yet it helped me to make such drastic changes to my diet and kick those bad habits to the curb!
I hate diets. I hate feeling restricted and deprived. I had tried so many things in the past to get healthy and just got discouraged and quit. But to be honest (other than my starbucks withdrawal when I cut it out that first month :P) I never once felt hungry or deprived when doing this program. I actually eat MORE in a day than I was before I started the fix, just the right foods.
The changes and healthy eating habits I’ve adapted, have stuck with me as I go into month 5 of this new lifestyle. It actually excites me to fuel my body with so many healthy foods because I know what it’s done for me so far (see my results here) and I know how amazing I feel at the end of the day.
So here’s what a day on the fix might look like (the options are totally endless and you can be as creative with your meal planning as you want to be!):
- Breakfast: greek yogurt + kiwi, banana, blueberries
- Snack: shakeology with berries
- Lunch: Ryvita with chicken and snap peas
- Snack: Celery, tomatoes and humus
- Dinner: Sweet potato, chicken strips and cauliflower!
Not so bad right?! It pays off to give your body what it needs.
