There was a new product released this year called the “21 Day Fix”. It was released in February, which meant it had horrible timing for my life: while the rest of my friends were giving it a try, I was holed up in my bedroom, recovering from jaw surgery. BOO!
And I’ll admit, I was incredibly skeptical- the program, which combined an eating plan and 30-minute workouts, had us eating out of these containers. It looked ridiculous.
However, I decided to give it a try. I was blown away. Boy, was I wrong about this program!
The containers create portion control (which I like to call “balance control”) between fruits, vegetables, protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats. The portions are MUCH larger than those deceptive containers look: Each green container (representing the vegetables) provides a cup of leafy greens, which is a gratuitous portion when considering that I now eat 3-4 of those containers per day.
The program has you decide which amount of containers to eat, depending upon your height and weight. It’s also realistic, allowing chocolate and wine into the program, just to name a few. While essentially becoming more conscious of what you’re putting in your body, a variety of 30-minute workouts come with the program too, ranging from pilates and yoga to cardio and weight lifting.
This program is a game-changer for me, even as an already-healthy eater. It’s like a master class for your daily routine: I eat every 2-3 hours on the program and have food/snacks already planned for my incredibly hectic day. I’ve been loving it so much that I have a group of ladies who have all committed to doing the same thing with me!

I challenge each one of you to consider making one subtle, healthier change to your eating habits. Whether it’s omitting your late-night snack, watching your alcohol intake or limiting the number of times you grab food on-the-go, I challenge you to make these changes for yourself. For your future. Because in the end, that’s why we all are doing this. We want to have the highest quality of life possible.
Stay healthy and gluten free, my friends!
