7 Responses to My 21 Day Fix Journey

  1. Just wanted to say thanks as my husband and I are about to start the fix and it is so refreshing to read advice 1) from a non-Beachboy coach, and 2) a list of 21 day approved family-friendly foods, as we have a 4 and 2 year old at home.
    I’d be curious how much you used shakeology in your journey too…it just seems so pricey, you know? But my friend- who happens to also be a coach – really advises it.

    • You are so welcome! I’m glad you find it helpful. I did use Shakeology…honestly I think part of my motivation to stick with the program was because of how expensive it was, I wanted to get my money’s worth! I did really enjoy the daily shakes and I felt like they really contributed to my results as well as my energy level. That said, I’m not entirely convinced that a protein shake wouldn’t have accomplished pretty much the same thing. In my opinion – take it or leave it! – I’d say go ahead and do the Shakeology for your first Fix so you are doing the complete program. Then, after your 21 days, see what you think of it and go from there. I just did one bag of Shakeology and didn’t reorder, but I am glad that I did it. Good luck with your first round!!

  2. Thank you so much for your opinion, experience and all the advice. I started two days ago and find it some what of motivation to read successful stories from an unbiased opinion. I can totally relate to you. Scavenging for tips , recipes and anything that will guide me through this. Thank you again this was helpful to read .

  3. I am very happy to hear that of an original review. I will begin my first round of the 21DF on 4/4/16. I did have a personal question. I noticed you started when your baby was 6 months old, were you nursing at the time? My son will be 5 months in April and I am still nursing and wanted any suggestions or tips if you were nursing. Thanks so much for the information and meals! :)

    • You are very welcome!! Yes, I was nursing (yay for burning extra calories, right??)…to account for the extra calories for BFing, I upped myself into the next highest bracket of container counts. I don’t think I ever “ran out” of containers in a day and was still hungry…but if you do, it’s always okay to add an extra green or red container. Good luck, and have fun!!

  4. Thanks so much on the genuine/honest review:))Really appreciate your time!
    I am also thinking about this program,the only thing I am skeptical about is my age Factor….I am 43 and was wondering if this will work for me?I am at 132 pounds right now and need to loose 15 pounds in two months for a reunion!I hear a lot about the difficulty of loosing weight after 40 years of age:(
    What do you think?

    • My mother did 21DF at age 59 with great success! I don’t know that she lost a significant amount of weight (though she really didn’t need to lose any to begin with as she was already at a healthy weight) but she did lose noticeable inches and looked a lot fitter. So, yes, I think this would definitely work for you!
