21 day fix reviewsWith all of the fad diet and exercise programs that hit the market each month, it’s hard to separate the good from the bad. No one has the money to waste on all of these programs which is why you need to read this 21 Day Fix review before even considering using this program by Autumn calabrese. It sounds tempting to believe that you can get a “beach ready body” in just three weeks which is why we had to take a closer look with this 21 Day Fix review.

At the end of this review, if you conclude that the 21 Day Fix is worth your time and money, we’ll provide you with a link to get some serious discounts and free items directly from the 21 Day Fix website. Ready? Let’s go!

The 21 Day Fix Workout Program

21 Day fix workouts

workout programThe 21 Day Fix exercise program consists of 2 DVDs that have 3 workouts out (6 in total). Each workout is crafted to deliver a “massive calorie burn” in just 30 minutes. Every workout is different and increases in difficulty from the previous workout and comes with a modifier so you scale the intensity level of the workout up or down to meet your personal comfort.
The first 15 days consists of doing 1 workout/day, then on the last week you can do the double : one workout in the morning and another in the evening. The workouts are:

  • Total Body Cardio Fix. Rises your heart rate, boost your metabolism into overdrive for long-lasting weight loss benefits.
  • Upper Fix. Specifically works the back, shoulders, arms, chest and abs for a great swimsuit body.
  • Lower Fix. Works the thighs, calves and butt for the rest of your beach-ready body.
  • Pilates Fix. Uses core strength moves to tone and elongate the torso and tighten up your thighs, butt and hips.
  • Cardio Fix. Insanity cardio workout that kicks the first workout into overdrive.
  • Yoga Fix. Boosts flexibility and relaxes your muscles to keep them in perfect tone.

From yoga to pilates to cardio, the workouts are well crafted, inspiring, simple and exciting!

The 21 Day Fix Eating Plan

containersTo be clear, there really is no “diet” here in the program. The eating program uses a color coded system of containers and a Shakeology Shaker Cup to give you perfect portion control every time with zero mistakes. NO MORE MEASURING and COUNTING! If it fits in the container, you can eat it, and you’ll lose weight.

  1. Green Container: For vegetables
  2. Purple Container: For fruits
  3. Red Container: For proteins
  4. Yellow Container: For carbohydrates
  5. Blue Container: For healthy fats and cheeses
  6. 2 Orange Containers: seeds and dressings
  7. Shakeology Cup: For mixing drinks

Diet plan Details:

  • First, the diet plan will show you how to calculate your caloric intake based on your current weight. Your caloric intake is the amount of calories you have to eat daily during the 21 Day Fix

calorie level

  • You can use the Calculator below to know your target calories, just input you current weight:

  • The caloric intake will lead you to know the exact number of each container and teaspoons (oils, nut butters or seed butters) a day. The eating plan comes with 4 caloric levels, as you can see in the picture :

daily intake

  • If your target is less than 1200 calories then round it up to 1200, when it’s over 2300, round it down to 2300.
  • What i love about this program is its simplicity: fill up the containers with the food that goes with each one’s color and enjoy! You don’t have to count calories. Just choose the foods from the list that comes with the program. It’s all about portions. Portion control is what makes this workout so special and revolutionary, it teaches you how to make healthy choices without restrictions or obsessions.
  • It is up to you how you spread the containers over the day, just know your daily allowance from the chart above and do it your own way. It is therefore recommended to spread your meals/containers across 3 main meals and 2 or 3 snacks each day, or you can do 6 small meals a day with 2 hours interval.
  • You are allowed to drink almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk, fruit juice and coconut water 3 times a week, however each time you do this you will need to forego a yellow container.
  • The program recommends drinking a lot of water and also allows coffee and tea.
  • Autumn also recommends taking an extra green container when you are hungry because it’s hard to overeat veggies.

The 21 Day Fix Review – Conclusion

The simplicity involved in the 21 day fix is ingenious: with Portion control, healthy eating and simple 30 minute workouts, you really don’t have to look elsewhere, this program will be a life-changer for you and had already been for so many people in the last few months (See below). It’s more of an enjoyable experience than a simple diet/workout.

Okay, so our final criteria here is whether you can try it for free or not. The answer to that is yes! There is a 100% day money back guarantee so if it doesn’t work, get a full refund, no questions asked.

So we’ve hit every point on the checklist and the bottom line is that the 21 Day Fix is worth a try.

    Hey guys. I’m on day 3 woohoo. I am 27 yeara old and I been a type 1 diabetic for 17 years. At first it’s a little hard tring to figure out how much insulin to give yourself because if it goes low you have to eat. So each meal make sure u give less insulin and try to find that balance. Any how thsee workouts are great and she makes them fun. the only thing I don’t use is shakology but I do use my protein….I’ll keep you guys updated in a week :) wish me luck

      Yes! Finding the balance between your insulin doses and your food intake is the tricky part for diabetics especially when adding the workouts to the equation. It is also primordial to avoid hypoglycemia after working out. You are doing a good job Gina, very happy for you and good luck! :)

      While breastfeeding you will need more calories every day, Autumn recommends to jump up to the next caloric level. Make sure you drink a lot of water to keep your milk supply up. Another thing to mention is that the 21 day fix meal plan gives you healthy eating that will benefit your baby too. It is also recommended to consult your doctor first.

        Hi. I just ordered 21 day fix!! In August I had surgery for endometrial cancer a complete hysterectomy. I lost 20 lbs and kept it off, however I need to lose more weight. I am not happy with myself at all, I have been a diabetic for 17 years on medication plus my family history is not good heart issues and in the last two months we have lost a cousin at age 34 and my uncle who was 73 for heart issues. I am scared and to be here as long as the good Lord allows me too!! I also want to look and feel good for me and my husband he loves me, yet I want him to look at me the way he did 34 years ago. So I am pumped getting this program. Thank you for reading. <3

    I’m on Day 3 of the 21 Day Fix and I also feel great. When I first saw the container sizes I imagined myself feeling hungry after each meal however, once you combine them together in according to your caloric intake, you feel satisfied. I’m also drinking Shakelogy- Chocolate with banana’s as a meal replacement for breakfast and I must say it’s delicious! It doesn’t taste diet at all, it’s satisfying, filling and has eliminated my cravings for morning coffee or breakfast in general. Yes, the sakes are pricey however, when you do the math, it coms out to about $4-5 a day which is what one normally might spend at Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks. I did the first work out yesterday and it was pretty intense but do-able. So long as you pace yourself, I woke up feeling sore and look forward to going home after work and doing the next work out (Upper Body Fix). I can’t wait to see what the weeks ahead of me will be like. Yes, I’m sore but that’s hen you have to push yourself the most. I would like to add that I am not a Beach Body coach nor am I getting any recognition for writing this review except to educate those who are considering taking on the 21 Day Fix challenge. Lots of luck to everyone and thanks for reading.

      Ginger- When you add a banana to your shakeology, do you count it as 2 fruit servings for the day?? I get so confused on how to count the food containers sometimes. I was just wondering because 1/2 banana alone counts as 1 Purple container, so I figure if you add a whole banana into shakeology, it would count as 2 purple container servings. Am I correct? Or am I reading more into this than I need???
      Thanks :) And continuous good luck to you

        Jul, you’ll definitely want to count a Shakeo + banana as one red and two purple containers. This is often how I get my fruit requirement in because there aren’t many fruits I enjoy eating alone.

      If you are a vegan or vegetarian you can still do the 21 day fix without problem. The eating plan includes a special guide that recommends using any variety of beans (cooked or drained), lentils, quinoa in red containers as protein, these are just examples, the guide includes many more options.

    I’m considering buying this. What I have trouble with is the foods I eat. I’m not sure it’s balanced. In this program is there some sort of menu of what to eat each day? Or do u just fill the containers with the stuff u want in the appropriate container?

      Hi
      Thanks for your question. 21 Day Fix works because it’s simple and healthy eating so you have just to choose your foods from the eating plan and fill the containers according to the colors. Simple as that :)

    I am on Day 6 and I feel great, great that I have been eating clean and the containers are self explanatory. im eating 3-2-4-2-1-1-2….and believe me its a lot of food! Ive missed pilates day, but I did zumba that day so I feel okay about that. The exercise and food programs are simple and genius! Ive tried so many many different eating/exercise plans and Im stoked that this one makes 100% sense to me! I hope this helps anyone contemplating this program. I’ll follow up in a week

      While it is possible to drink alcohol in the 21 day fix by subbing out one yellow container – 3 times a week – it is really recommended to avoid drinking soda or alcohol, it will alter your results. Honestly, it’s for only 21 days so why not give yourself the opportunity to get some rocking results in just 3 weeks. 21 Day fix will help you establish simple and healthy ways of eating in the long run and one of the ways is to really limit your alcohol intake.
      Hope that helps.

    Just curious because I’m interested in buying this program, can you drink smoothies made with the Nutribullet? I guess you could use the fruit so long as it fits in the containers? Does the program allow artificial sweetners? I need to lose about 50 pounds and I am tired of being unhappy with myself. Winter will be here soon and I refuse to gain weight this year. So I need to find a workout I can do inside because it will be harsh outside.

    • Samantha S. Meagher

      yes it is absolutely fine to use Nutribullet as long as the fruits fit in your container. Artificial sweeteners are non-nutritive and they have virtually no calories so yes you can use them. Good luck Misty :)

    I am currently a breast feeding mom, and I was told breast feeding burns @300 calories a day. Should I take this into consideration and consume those extra calories on top of my calorie target? My weight is 154 so my target is 1344 calories, so should I do 1644? I am hoping to lose 10lbs and tighten everything up.

      While breastfeeding you will need more calories every day, Autumn recommends to jump up to the next caloric level, in your case to 1500-1799 Level. Make sure you drink a lot of water to keep your milk supply up. Another thing to mention is that the 21 day fix meal plan gives you healthy eating that will benefit your baby too. It is also recommended to consult your doctor first.

    I’m going to order this. I couldn’t stop crying after seeing the infomercial. I am, like many others, severely overweight, 56 years old, and am tired of not being confident in the way I look. I’ve become a hermit and don’t like to go anywhere. I also have hypothyroidism. I can do anything for 21 days. I always kept looking at the “big picture” (I would have to lose 1/2 my body weight to be “normal”), and that seemed overwhelming. I will post after the 21 days!!!

      I am on my second round of the 21 day fix. I am 55 yrs. old and have hypothyroidism and over the last 5 years have gained 70 lbs! The workouts are tough, I had to do a lot of modifiers which is fine. Within the first two weeks I felt fantastic and people were already telling me how much thinner my legs looked. After the first round (21 days) everyone noticed I looked thinner all over. The kicker is I only lost 4 lbs but my clothes were so loose it was amazing, which means I lost a lot of inches. I foolishly didn’t take my measurements when I started. Don’t make that mistake. I am at the end of the second week of round 2 and have lost 8 lbs total and dropped 2 pants sizes. So all the hard work does pay off and you feel great. I started supplementing with a protein shake made with unsweetened almond milk and a banana everyday because you have to eat so much food I couldn’t get it all in. Don’t be afraid to do the modifiers, they are there’re for a reason. Build up at your own pace. I am doing less modifiers now but still have to do some. You get a free membership to beachbody; I suggest you use it to find a good free coach and join some of the support groups on Facebook. It is a great way to share your journey and get the support and accountability. Good luck and don’t get discouraged. This is the only eating and exercise plan out there that has worked for me in a long time!

      After you finish the program you will be very good at picking the right type and quantity of each food, you will develop a good sense of healthy eating. You should also continue exercising 3-4 times a week. 21 day fix is just a start to a new healthy living. The program comes with a “Post-FIX maintenance guide” you can also follow.

I am now 125 lbs and have lost the weight only by breastfeeding. But i would like to tone my body specially my stomach, i just want to make sure that this program doesnt impact my milk supply since im still breastfeeding and need to intake 500 extra calories.

      Hi
      Good question, you are breastfeeding so generally you need more calories every day, so if you are planning to do the 21 Day Fix which is a good decision Autumn recommends to jump up to the next caloric level, you also have to drink a lot of water to keep your milk supply up. Another thing to mention is that the 21 day fix meal plan gives you healthy eating that will benefit your baby too. It is also recommended to consult your doctor first.
      Regards.

      It means the number of oil/nut butter teaspoons you are allowed per day. They are very useful when craving kicks in after dinner for example.

      Hi Nina
      Fruit juices are allowed but only 3 times a week and you should also sub out a yellow container each time.
      Hope that helps :)

    I just watched the television program early this morning about 5am. I was impressed on what I’ve seen and I would like to get started on the diet/program. I’m a muscular male who used to body build when I was in my early 30-40 years. I’m now 62 years old, and I weight about 297 pounds. I don’t look fat but I do have a a medium size belly. That’s where all of my weight is located at. I’m still muscular but like I said, I have a belly. Oh, by the way, I’m a county police officer and I really need to get back into sharp. I forgot to mention one thing. I love to eat. I don’t normally eat three meals a day. When I do eat, it’s a big meal. HELP!!! I need it.

    I purchased this program last night!!! While waiting for the package to come in, i’ve come across this website. I did my calculations to see my daily intake so i can start the food planning process. I weigh around 255lbs and based on the math this puts me in the 2100-2300 calorie range. This means I will be eating more than I currently do. I’ve been on a 1500 calorie count per day in past weight loss experiments without any luck. I guess I really need to start eating more to be successful. This is excellent news, because I love to eat!

      It’s absolutely fine! You can finish by getting the same results with or without it. It’s pricey that’s for the cons but it really tastes good, will keep you full for hours and will give you a good energy boost. It’s up to you really.

        I find the Shakeology pretty gross- but u can doctor it up to make it drinkable. There’s a sickly sweet aftertaste- blech! But I drink it because I do find it helps curb my cravings. Haven’t seen any spike in my energy yet but I’ve only been on it 4 days.

      It is not recommended, the caloric level you will calculate will be already deficient so you can lose weight especially considering the amount of exercises you will have to do. You will need to keep your energy level up!

    I have been on the fix for 14 days and have lost 10 pounds. I have not cheated at all I do have at least 60 lbs to loose. Can I drink a beverage called Sparking Ice ? it has no calories, carbs or fat. It does however contain the sugar sub found in splenda. Ok or not ?

    I’m a little disappointed, I’ve been doing the workouts for 2 weeks and have not exceeded my usual 2300 calorie intake and have not lost any weight. I lost 3 pounds the first week and have since put it back on while still exercising.

    Hello, I just saw your show on Montell Williams ,I’m not sure when it was taped or aired. I feel this would be the best plan for my daughter who has been struggling with weight since the age of 7. At the age of 11,She’s under went hip surgery, now at 13 she was hospitalization for two weeks because of pancreatitis and insulin resistance. As her mother I’m proud of her journey thus far she was admitted weighing 206 now she’s 193 with eating portions and walking. I’m definitely going to buy it for both of us. I think it will help her as well too with binge eating… Wish us LUCK AND SUCCESS…

      I have to disagree with you – It is my experience that when people get somethng for free they often take advantage of it – discard it when they get bored with it, etc. If you have to pay for something, it often motivates you to use it – thus the results might be better. Just my opinion.

      Every person and body respond differently to exercise and diet plans, just like every person has a different metabolism. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t see results as quickly as others—the bottom line is that this is a 21 day program, not a 3 to 7 day program. If you see results in that short amount of time, great! If not, don’t worry—you will see them in the end.

    I’ve read a lot about the workouts in 21 Day Fix being too easy, but let me tell you, they were perfect for me. They strike the perfect balance of getting my body moving and sweating while not making me want to plop on the couch out of sheer boredom and pain. While I’m not really following the eating plan too well, I gotta say, my butt looks amazing. I think it’s time to really follow the diet now!

      Absolutely. A meal plan lays out a proper nutritional chart for you, allowing you to lose more weight than you ever thought possible, even if you’d dropped a ton already and have hit a wall in your weight loss.

    This is the best way I’ve found to get the right portions and amounts of food into my body to help keep me healthy while losing weight. The workouts are challenging for me, but I can feel myself getting stronger every day. I feel like I’m finally at the point where I can stick to a complete lifestyle change after I reach my weight loss goal, something I’ve never felt before.

    Do you have to eat all of the recommended food servings in the 21 Day Fix?

    Reply

    • Samantha S. Meagher

      |

      For the best results, it’s strongly recommended that you eat all the servings in the 21 Day Fix diet as they are laid out. If you’re having a problem with the protein because you prefer carbs, fruits and vegetables, remember that this diet plan is only for 21 days, so power through it. Doing so will get you to your ideal weight, even those last difficult 10 to 15 pounds!

        what is the caloric intake? I just went to a nutrition class and was told about carbs, all types of carbohydrates such as fruits, startchy vegetables, breads/ grains, juices, some meats, and of course candy. basically in my understanding is that everything that contains sugar also contains carbohydrates. so I don’t understand how eating basically carbs at every meal will help you lose weight. so I think it’s the exercise that you actually benefit from. also how would this work out/ diet plan benefit someone who weighs 300 pounds?

          Brooke, As a diabetic who has to count carbs all day everyday, this is a simple explanation. Carbohydrates (which sugars break down into when in the body) are needed as a main source of nutrient along with fat and protein. your body needs these things within reason (as in portions) multiple times a day to ensure your body can handle them correctly. the problem these days is that everything is served in multiple portions instead of the correct portions. Also known as “portion distortion” So you need them within reason throughout the day.

      The concept behind the 21 Day Fix is based on creating a caloric deficiency in your body so that it burns fat quickly. The 21 Day Fix is not a permanent diet plan, it is a short-term, high-result, rapid weight loss program that is both safe and effective as long as you follow it as written.

    Hands down, one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. All of the pressure and guessing is off because Autumn shows you exactly how to eat the right way! With perfect portions each and every time plus the simple 30 minutes workouts, 21 Day Fix is simple but really works.

    21 Day Fix works as advertised, but only if you really follow it. When I stop the program, I still struggle a little with binge eating and have some bad habits. Thankfully, I just start it up again to get the weight back off and now I’m starting to realize just how important breaking bad habits and creating a lifestyle change is. Weight control is a constant battle, one that 21 Day Fix is helping me win.

    Some of the workouts were a bit under what I was used to in terms of effort, but I can see where a beginner or person who is really struggling to start their weight loss would find 21 Day Fix helpful. Myself, I dropped only about 5 pounds over the month that I followed the exercise program, though I might not have seen the full effect because I made my own diet.

      I ordered it and started it on Saturday. I’m in the 1200 calorie group and the meal plan offers plenty of choices and, as long as I eat something every few hours, I’m not hungry. With the exception of a 1/2 tsp of sugar and cream in my morning coffee, I’ve stuck to the meal plan 100%. I’m not doing shakology. The DVDs are a challenge, but I’m doing it! I sometimes have to do the “modified” workout, but it’s way more than I’ve done for the past few years. So, too early to claim any results, but I’m sore and motivated. Goals is to lose 20 lbs and tone this middle-aged body.
