The 21 Day Fix, 3 Day Quick Fix

The 21 Day Fix has proven to be a downright amazing program with nothing short of incredible results.  I have personally completed the program a few times and just can not get enough of it or it's amazing results! Never before have I ever felt better and that even includes the almost 2 years that I have been transforming my health and my body.  Yes, I was exercising and eating clean but I was missing an important piece along the way! Once I introduced the fix into my life it was magical.  No more bloating, so much more energy, simple portion control and effective exercise in just 30 minutes!  You can call me one happy momma! 

So the last week of the program is all about pushing you a little more to get the best results possible and offers what I like to call a secret weapon, the last 3 days there is the option to do this 3 day quick fix!  It is basically a little extra oomph to end the fix. 

You can also do this 3 day plan anytime if you wanted to drop an extra couple of pounds before an upcoming wedding, event or vacation.  If you feel like you just need a reboot after a few bad nutritional habits this would work too! 

This is a plan that Autumn Calabrese (creator of the 21 day fix) uses to prep for her bikini competitions and her photo shoots.  It's not something you want to do for any longer than 3 days, but if done occasionally, its a great way to lose a little weight, fast.

It is truthfully a little challenging, so be ready for it!  I can say that I am a carb girl and only having carbs first thing in the morning is hard for me!  Also, I miss my fruit and I felt a little dizzy at night. But water intake is key plus making sure you do indeed get your meals in thru out the day.

Here are the details:

To do this cleanse you will need the 21 Day Fix Portion Control Containers. I recommend buying the entire program. The workouts are 30 minutes or less, and are good ones! 

  • Space your meals approximately two hours apart.  Set a time on your phone to remind you to eat if you have to.

    • Steamed veggie options recommended are broccoli, asparagus, green beans, zucchini, cucumbers or bell peppers.
    • Seasonings allowed are lemon and lime juice, vinegars, and spices.  No SALT
    • Oatmeal can be flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg, or one packet (1/2 teaspoon) of stevia.
    • Drink at least one gallon of water a day. Spread it out as much as possible starting with a glass when you first wake up.  It will help you feel full while it flushes toxins from your system.  
    • Drink the extra virgin coconut oil with meals.  To prepare it, place the desired amount in a microwave safe bowl and zap for 10 to 15 seconds.
    • Coffee or tea is fine to drink, but avoid creamers and sweeteners except stevia.  
    • No need to alter your workouts, the 3 day quick fix can be used anytime! It is also recommended during the last 3 days and only 3 days of the program for maximum results.

    The PLAN:

    Meal 1:  (YELLOW) Steel cut oatmeal (cooked) (RED) Egg whites and 1 spoon of E.V. coconut oil.
