As a Coach, I am constantly asked what the difference is between the 21 Day Fix and the 21 Day Fix Extreme are, and since they are 2 of my favorite programs and on special this month I decided I would break it down for you!
What’s the difference between the two?
21 Day Fit EXTREME is basically a step up in intensity from 21 Day Fix.
Workouts: While the workouts have modifiers, it is still no walk in the park and is great for people looking for something a little bit more challenging!
Nutrition: You still use the same containers but choose from two options when creating your meal plan. No treats, wine or chocolate on the Extreme plan.
The 21 Day Fix nutrition plan is one of the easiest on the market. Since you eat everything in moderation – nothing is off-limits!
Ingredients for your meals are easy to buy, a breeze to prepare and a joy to eat. Best of all, you can have Shakeology, since it counts as a protein.
The 21 Day Fix portioned containers are measured out for the correct portions, so you don’t have to count calories. Simply put the food in the containers, that are easy to carry around when you’re on-the-go. For your convenience, they are dishwasher and microwave safe!
Breast feeding? Vegetarian? Vegan? You can modify your meals to suit your needs, using the directions provided in the materials.
Enjoy a treat a couple of times a week – as long as you don’t gorge yourself!
Since it is hard to visualize what would go into a meal plan for the 21 Day Fix, I put together some examples of what would go in the recommended 1,200 to 1,399 daily diet, consisting of:
3 GREEN vegetable containers
2 PURPLE fruit containers
4 RED protein containers
2 YELLOW carb container
1 BLUE nuts / dairy container
1 ORANGE seeds / fats container
2 servings of oil
Every day, you would have 5 meals, and a typical menu for the week would look as follows –
Meal 1 Monday – Friday: Shakeology with frozen berries.
Meal 1 on weekends could be scrambled eggs, oatmeal and banana, or fried eggs, whole wheat pancakes and an apple.
Meal 2: Greek Yogurt
Meal 3: Mixed green salad with cucumbers, peppers and either grilled chicken or sliced top round steak, or pork tenderloin. On weekends, have a turkey breast, avocado and whole wheat wrap with your salad.
Meal 4: Choose any one of banana, pineapple, apple, orange, pear or cherries with mixed nuts.
Meal 5: For your main meal, enjoy one of the following –
- veg stir fry with sliced top round steak and brown or wild rice
- sauteed kale with pork tenderloin and corn on the cob
- steamed veg with a turkey breast and sweet potato
- asparagus, lean burger on whole wheat bread and cheddar cheese
- steamed veggies with grilled salmon
