The BEST Timed Nutrition Plan
If you’re trying to lose weight and/or build muscle, it’s not only important to pay attention to what you eat but when you eat it. I’m going to introduce you to the BEST timed nutrition plan that will help you do this.
First, let me fill you in on exactly what a Timed Nutrition Plan is…
What is a Timed Nutrition Plan?
A Timed Nutrition Plan is an eating plan that is structured in a way that you eat small meals consisting of certain types of food at 2-3 hour intervals throughout the day. By eating the right healthy energy producing foods at specific times before and after your workouts, your body will be adequately fueled to workout and will benefit from optimal calorie placement. No need for those workouts to be any harder than then need to be, right???
Now, you can spend HOURS researching how to create your own Timed Nutrition Plan or you can do it the easy way. Keeping things SIMPLE is at the heart of my coaching philosophy, so I’ll here to teach you about the best timed nutrition plan that has already been created for you!
The Best Timed Nutrition Plan
I absolutely LOVE the 80 Day Obsession’s eating plan and wholeheartedly trust the knowledge and skill of Autumn Calabrese, which is why I think it’s the best Timed Nutrition Plan available. It has made a BIG difference in my results.
The 80 Day Obsession is actually a complete fitness and nutrition program by Beachbody that combines effective core and glute exercises with a Timed Nutrition Plan.
If you follow the program faithfully, you WILL finish with a firm and rounded butt and toned core.
The 80 Day Obsession’s Timed Nutrition Plan uses the Portion Fix/21 Day Fix containers and a specifically timed container allotment plans to help you achieve maximum results. The meals, containers, and nutritional supplements are all laid out for you and you can use the blank Menu Planner to stay on track.
Not only do you know when you’re eating, but you’ll know exactly what (and how many) containers to use for each meal and the optimal time to use nutritional supplements to make you feel better.
You might be wondering how this works if Autumn doesn’t know whether you workout in the morning, midday or evening. Of course, she’s thought of that—the Program Guide, which is included in the Program Materials on Beachbody on Demand, has Timed Nutrition Plans for each of these workout times.
There are also three types of days in the 80 day program—a Regular day, a Refeed day (gives you more Purple/Fruit, Yellow/Healthy Carbs and Green/Veggie containers), and a Deplete day (removes the Purple/Fruit and a Yellow/Healthy Carbs container). These plans are designed to really dial in to what your body needs for best performance, to aid in muscle repair and recovery, and maximize your results.
The structure of the 80 Day Obsession Time Nutrition Plan takes the guesswork (and WORK work) out of your nutrition while still giving you the freedom to choose what goes into the containers based on your personal favorite foods from the food list.
True to it’s name, this program will have you obsessed with paying attention to details that you may not have had to pay attention to in the past. The result is that you LEARN a lot.
Nutrition Supplements & Timed Nutrition
Shakeology provides dense nutrition for your overall health and Beachbody Performance provides specifically targeted supplementation to give your body what it needs when it needs it. The Timed Nutrition Plan explains exactly how and when to use each supplement for maximum benefits.
I started using nutritional supplements when I was training for half and full marathons. I did this because I didn’t question the advice I was getting from those who had more experience and knowledge than me. Instead, I trusted the process. Today, they are my power tools that make such a positive difference in my healthy lifestyle journey.

Buffet Style Meal Prep & Timed Nutrition
Buffet style meal prep is absolutely CRITICAL when you’re using a Timed Nutrition Plan.
When I first did the 80 Day Obsession, I wasn’t able to come up with super creative meals because I was pairing containers I normally wouldn’t pair together. It was SO much easier to be able to grab individual ingredients and put together the meals using the containers as a guide.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about when I say “buffet style meal prep,” I can help you! As I mentioned, SIMPLICITY is at the heart of my coaching philosophy, so it’s my top priority to teach my customers how to do it.
To make it easier to learn (I used to be an elementary school teacher lol), I created a Buffet Style Meal Prep School. I really want you to do this because it will absolutely change your life. Click here to check it out:
