At first glance, many may think that the 21 Day Fix Extreme meal plan is VERY similar to the original 21 Day Fix meal plan. That is true. They are very similar but the minor differences pack a powerful punch in terms of additional results. Basically, Autumn removed all the “questionable” unclean, high fat, or high sodium items such as:
- crackers or cereal
- waffles or bagels
- english muffins
- deli meats
- turkey bacon
- and more…
What you need to realize though is making those slight changes really fine tune your nutrition and take your results up a notch! I, selfishly was excited because I could reuse a lot of my original recipes to compile a list of 21 Day Fix Extreme Recipes that are approved per the guidelines to help all of you!
21 Day Fix Extreme Nutrition Plan: Recipes
One thing that we really liked with this guide was that they included A LOT of recipes, and not just the basic grilled chicken or fish recipes, like really good recipes! They include the container equivalents and many options to choose from per meal so it was very convenient to reference and add in when I was falling short on ideas.
The Cashew Hotcakes were a HIT!
I added warmed blueberries on top… O.M.G. DELICIOUS!!!

21 Day Fix Extreme Nutrition Plan: Countdown to Competition
Another major component of the 21 Day Fix Extreme nutrition plan is the addition of Autumn’s competition plan. This is where things got VERY different for us. This plan is the one she follows to get SHREDDED prior to going out on stage to compete. This is the plan that Tommie and I decided to follow as part of the test group. We were already eating fairly clean so for us, we really wanted a serious challenge and the countdown to competition plan was the way to go! I will be the first to say that this plan isn’t going to be for everyone. It is very strict and is designed to get you super cut and shredded by increasing your protein and depleting your carbohydrates. You will have 2 days of “Competition” and then a regular “Extreme” day which if you are familiar with the 21 Day Fix, it is very similar to what you can have with that plan. To give you an idea of what the Countdown to Competition plan looks like, see my 21 Day Fix Extreme meal plan for Week 1 below:
Pretty SIMPLE, right? As you can see, there isn’t much variety on those Competition days. What we found was if we just stuck to keeping it very SIMPLE it was easier to prep and easier to execute. Need tips for prepping while doing this program? Check out my “How to Prep for the 21 Day Fix Extreme” post. It will help! I didn’t even have it all that bad, Tommie had to eat 11 reds a day! Talk about protein packed meals!!!
The first week was by far the hardest. It was a big adjustment for us. Getting that much protein in actually made me very nauseous the first 2 days but once I got on a strict schedule and adjusted the food arrangement spacing my proteins a bit more, I started to actually crave my competition days on my Extreme days. It’s amazing what 21 solid days of dedication can do for you and your body.
21 Day Fix Extreme Nutrition Plan: Results
I believe our results speak for themselves! Haven’t seen our results yet?!?
So, as you can see, Autumn really kicks it up a notch with the 21 Day Fix Extreme Nutrition Plan with this program but I honestly believe that you have to shake things up pretty drastically to get the fine tuned results that you want in the end. I really LOVED this program!!!
