21 Day Fix // 3 Day Quick Fix

This 21 Day Fix is simply genius! I am loving every minute of it! The 30-minute workouts totally fit into my life, and the best part is they are giving me *results*! The portion controlled containers have really taught me correct sizing on the healthy foods I eat. I have truly never felt this good!

I am on the last week of round two. During this week there is an option to do a 3 day quick fix. Basically, it's just something to end your 21 days with a bang, making those "after" pictures even more of a WOW!

If you want to drop a few pounds for an upcoming wedding or other event, maybe you want to get beach ready, or you may just need a reboot to stop a few bad nutritional habits, then this is where the 3 Day Quick Fix comes in.

This is what Autumn Calabrese, the trainer for the 21 Day Fix, uses to prep for her bikini competitions and photo shoots. It is not something you want to do for any longer than three days, but if done occasionally, it's a great way to lose a little weight, fast. 

After already completing the 3 Day Quick Fix during my round 1, I have to share that this is not easy! The key to making the 3 days successful is to stay on track with your meals and drinking *plenty* of water! And by the end, let me tell you, I had never craved something other than chicken and fish as much as I had then! ;)

Here is what to expect:
  • Space your meals about two hours apart. This is *key*! If you need to, set a reminder on your phone to alert you.
  • Steamed veggie options recommended are broccoli, asparagus, green beans, zucchini, cucumbers, or bell peppers.
  • Seasonings approved: 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'll 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 it for 10 to 15 seconds.
  • Coffee or tea is okay to drink, but avoid creamers and sweeteners, with the exception of stevia. 
  • Keep with your regular workout schedule, no need to alter those. The 3 Day Quick Fix can be used anytime. It is also recommended during the last three days, and only three days, of the program for maximum results. 

Here is the plan
  • Meal 1 - 1 Yellow: steel-cut cooked oatmeal, 1 Red: egg whites, 1 Spoon: extra virgin coconut oil (e.v.c.o.)
  • Meal 2 - 1 Red: grilled chicken and 1 Yellow: steamed yams
  • Meal 3 - 1 Red: steamed fish and 1 Green: steamed veggies
  • Meal 4 - 1 Red: grilled chicken, 1 Green: steamed veggies and 1 Spoon: e.v.c.o.
  • Meal 5 - 1 Red: steamed fish, 1 Green: steamed veggies and 1 Spoon: e.v.c.o.
  • Meal 6 - 1 Red: ground extra-lean turkey, 1 Green: steamed veggies and 1 Spoon: e.v.c.o.
You repeat this plan for three days, making sure you drink a lot of water and have NO SALT!
