80 Day Obsession Nutrition Plan FAQ

Because 80 Day Obsession is designed to help you reach your ultimate fitness goals, the nutrition plan may be a bit more structured and complex than other programs you’ve followed — you may still have a few questions about how the plan works and whether it’s right for you.

Here are answers to some of the questions we hear most often:

Is 80 Day Obsession beginner-friendly?

80 Day Obsession is an intermediate to advanced program for those who are already in good shape, but want to get seriously sculpted.

(If you’ve already completed 21 Day Fix or 21 Day Fix Extreme with Autumn, that’s even better!)

Not sure if you’re ready for this level of commitment? Try A Little Obsessed, a five-day introduction with 30-minute workouts and a sample nutrition plan.

Can I do 80 Day Obsession without Beachbody Performance supplements?

Yes. You’ll be provided with charts that explain how to adapt the plan if you decide not to use Beachbody Performance supplements.

For example, if you’re vegan, you may choose to replace the post-workout Recover supplement with Shakeology.

Or you may skip the supplements altogether and shift your meal times accordingly.

Can I use Portion Fix with the 80 Day Obsession workout plan?

You can — but without the 80 Day Obsession nutrition plan, you’re not going to see the same results. “You’re still doing a great workout plan, but it’s not the same thing,” Benté says.

Is it okay to swap meals if I’m craving something different?

Because this is a timed nutrition program, there’s not a lot of wiggle room if you want to get the results you’re looking for.

During your workout block, it’s important to follow the plan exactly. Outside your workout block, the three meals can be eaten in any order — as long as you don’t mess with the combinations of containers within each meal.

Can I do Deplete Days every week for faster results?

Nope. “Deplete days are only an option in the last week of the program, if you want to really shred out,” Benté says.

“It’s not something we recommend doing any other time, and it’s not something we recommend sticking to long-term.”

What should I do if I’m always hungry?

“If you get two or three weeks into this program, and you’re actually showing signs of true hunger — you’re tired, you’re dizzy, you have a headache, you’re having trouble sleeping, you can’t make it through a workout — you might need to bump up to the next plan,” Benté says.

The Bottom Line

And remember, it’s called 80 Day Obsession for a reason. If your goal is to shrink your core and chisel your booty, you need to be ready for 80 days of intense focus and rigid rules. It won’t be easy — but it’ll be worth it.
