The 21 Day Fix is such an easy, simple way to track and control your food intake. But it does take some planning and organizing to have success. Here are my tips, tricks, cheat sheets and sample meal plans!
Food Container Cheat Sheet
Besides using the 21 Day Fix iPhone app, this little cheat sheet right here is my saving grace! I have it saved on my phone in my photos at all times! You never know when you are at the grocery store and need to know "what container would this fall under?!"
Grocery Shopping- PLAN PLAN PLAN
I have never been the kind of person who can go shopping once a week for the whole week. It just doesn't work for us and our lifestyle. So I often go grocery shopping on one of my days off and then again later in the week. But the one thing I ALWAYS do is have a list. When I can, I try to use these grocery shopping lists below but in a pinch I'll make a note in my iPhone or even text myself my grocery list!
Meal Plan- PLAN PLAN PLAN (catching onto the planning theme ;)
My first round of 21 Day Fix I was extremely successful and I loved my results and I strongly believe this is because I planned out my first week on an Excel spreadsheet. I am on Plan B so here is a sample 2 days:
