Meal plans for a 21-day program include the My Fit Foods menu, the Primal Blueprint 21-Day Challenge and the Beachbody 21 Day Fix. Such programs are intended for quick, minor weight loss, focusing on portion control and healthy foods.
My Fit Foods manufactures pre-packaged meals. Customers can choose to eat these meals occasionally, or as part of the My Fit Foods 21 Day Challenge. Participants in this 21-day challenge consult with a nutrition coach to work out a personalized meal plan. The meals in this program focus on lean proteins, healthy fats and reduced sugar.
The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Challenge does not offer specific meals or recipes. This challenge includes a detailed outline of foods that dieters should eat and avoid while on the plan. The Primal Blueprint challenge also outlines how much and what type of physical activity to do during the 21 days. This meal plan focuses on reducing overall intake of carbohydrates and fully eliminating refined sugars, grains, processed oils and legumes.
The Beachbody 21 Day Fix is centered on portion control. Participants in the Fix receive a set of color-coded plastic containers of different serving sizes. Portions of different food types are measured into these containers before being used to make a meal. This ensures that every meal contains the correct proportions of nutrient groups, such as proteins, fats, vegetables and carbohydrates.
