My Ideal 21 Day Fix Container Allotment

When I first started the 21 Day Fix, I struggled a bit. On many days, I felt like I was starving. But, rather than give up, I paid close attention to those times when I didn’t feel famished. And, I took what I learned and created my ideal 21 Day Fix container allotment for the 1,200-1,500 calorie bracket.

Each of us has a unique physiology that reacts differently to different types of foods. For example, some of us can eat a carb-heavy breakfast and feel totally fine until it’s time for our next meal or snack, while others need protein to survive past an hour or two. I won’t delve into the science here—I’ll just say that there are legitimate scientific reasons for this.

Remember, what works for me isn’t necessarily going to work for you—this is just to share the concept and get you started. It’s super important for YOU to get totally in tune with YOUR body so you know how to structure your very own ideal 21 Day Fix container allotment.

I intentionally didn’t list specific foods here. I am just focusing on the container colors, because I want you to eat the foods YOU like from the 21 Day Fix food list.

Give my ideal 21 Day Fix container allotment a try and see how you feel. Tweak it as needed so that you feel good. While you’re learning about your body, keep a food journal—using either a pencil and paper or an app—so you can remember exactly how you felt after eating each meal. Trust me, you will miss out on key details if you don’t keep a record. This is not forever—just while you’re figuring out your allotment.

Here’s my ideal allotment for the 1,200-1,500 calorie bracket:

Meal 1—I eat my first meal after my morning workout.

  • (1) RedShakeology
  • (2) Purple—I usually use a banana in my Shakeology

Meal 2

Meal 3—My third meal is my most creative!

  • (2) Teaspoon
  • (1) Red
  • (2) Yellow
  • (1) Green
  • (1) Blue

Meal 4—My fourth meal is almost always a salad with protein and dressing.

  • (1) Red
  • (1) Green
  • (1) Orange

One of the most awesome things about the 21 Day Fix for me has been the process of intimately getting to know my body. The Fix is NOT meant to be a diet—it is an invaluable tool to change your lifestyle. And, remember—changing one’s lifestyle is a process, not an event! Take the time to learn as much as you can and commit to making the change and your body WILL respond. And, that, my friends, is a beautiful thing!
