A 21 Day Fix? Can't be that good right... Maybe it can be.

A 21 Day Fix? Can't be that good right... Maybe it can be.

So there's the old rule that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit.  It may be true for some people but for most of us it can take up to 66 days, just over 2 months to start a habit. So what's the deal with a 21 day nutrition fix? It helps people jump start a new nutrition program, they get some quick results (some people can lose up to 15 pounds), and it helps you figure out what to do in the long term with nutrition programs (what works and what doesn't work for each person). 

So let's work out a few of the tips for the essentials of a 21-day fix program. 

#1) Eat right!

And if you want to lose weight (or gain weight), stay off that treadmill and don’t touch those weights until you’ve first taken a long, hard look at what you eat.

The trick to good nutrition (and therefore faster results) is to feed your body a combination of protein and carbohydrates every few hours. This ensures proper recovery from workouts AND optimal energy levels throughout your day. Balanced nutrition is the key. And believe it or not, for best results, you should eat 5–6 (small) meals each day instead of the “3 square meals” you’re probably used to, or worse just one big meal a day.

Here’s a quick ingredients checklist you want to stick to when creating your own meals from now on. The better you stick to this, the better your body will be when the 21 days are up…

-Protein – Choose a portion of lean protein, such as chicken breast, ground turkey, fish or steak. Protein is essential for toning and building muscle. Three–five ounces should be about the right size.

-Carbohydrates – Choose a portion of complex carbohydrates, such as a small baked potato, sweet potato, 1/2 cup of brown rice or a slice of whole-wheat bread.

-Vegetables – Add a portion of vegetables with at least two meals each day.
Essential Fats – Consume one tablespoon of unsaturated oil daily (olive oil is best) or three portions of salmon per week. Not all fats make you fat.

-Water – Drink at least half your body weight in ounces each day. If you weigh 150 pounds, drink at least 75 ounces – more when you’re exercising.

#2) The other tricks.

- Your rumbling belly is lying to you, you're not hungry, your're probably dehydrated.

- Learn what catabolic means. Basically eat your protein so your body doesn't eat itself.

- SNACKS!

- Supplement your plan with supplements, especially whole-food, natural, and organic supplements.

- Plan your meals!

- Track your intake. You'll be surprised at how much you actually put in your face!
