So, now that you have your plan option chosen, and a great template to start writing our your week’s worth of food, now its time to choose your meals. The best advice we can give is to keep it SIMPLE. The first week is by far the hardest week you will have while doing this program because of the adjustments you will be making not only with your food choices but with your eating schedule. So making it simple to follow is KEY! That means keeping your choices minimal and prepping in bulk. Don’t over think or over plan your food. Think of your food as fuel not comfort. One of the biggest tips I’ve learned in the fitness world is that those that are fit just find what works and repeats it. So, if you eat the same 3 breakfasts in a row, go for it. If you eat the same salad all 5 days, even better! If you can prep and cook chicken, brown turkey meat, shrimp, and boiled eggs as your protein source for the week, DO IT! All of those are great tips for keeping it simple and manageable. Here is what a few days of prepping looks like in our house!
Notice the repetitive nature of some of the ingredients? See similar proteins? Veggies? and Carbs? THAT is how you execute the 21 Day Fix Extreme meals to get the results you want!
Finally, if you rocked the socks off of your first week, REPEAT it for Week 2 and 3! Once you familiarize yourself with the plan options and you start hitting a groove with prepping and executing your plans, then you can start to add more variety and introduce new meals into your line-up. BUT, until then, keep things SIMPLE!
