One of the most exciting features of the 21 Day Fix EXTREME is the Countdown to Competition Eating Plan. Before a swimsuit competition, Autumn Calabrese will focus her nutrition in order to slim down and maximize her results. Her nutrition plan follows the concept of “carb depletion”, which temporarily removes carbs from your diet and instead focuses on lean proteins, vitamin-rich veggies, and healthy fats. By doing so, your body is able to burn through body fat while still fueling your body in a healthy way. The Countdown to Competition eating plan is comprised of a combination of both the carb depletion as well as the 21 Day Fix EXTREME eating plans. You follow a “two days on, one day off” schedule, alternating between the two plans.
This plan is intense, and it’s not for everyone. If this plan doesn’t interest you, that’s OK! Just by following the 21 Day Fix EXTREME Eating Plan, you’re going to get amazing results. It’s also only meant to be a temporary eating plan, in fact it’s not recommended for more than 21 days at a time. I’ve decided to commit to it now so that I can get the very best results possible in my first round of the 21 Day Fix EXTREME. I’ll be following this plan closely and posting my meals along the way, along with my thoughts on the workouts and the program as a whole.
I’ve created some worksheets to help plan my meals and track my containers. I’ve provided them here for you to download and use. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
