Why am I not losing weight on 21 Day Fix?

This is one of the most common questions that circulates the challenges and the 21 Day Fix related Facebook groups, some people find that they are not losing weight the first week and some are not losing their first round. There are also those have even reported they have been up a pound or two. My coach said it to me and I will say it to you - STEP AWAY from the scale! These changes especially in the wrong direction are so discouraging. The reason you started this is to get fit and feel great about yourself and your body! 21 Day Fix will help you acheive these goals. 21 Day fix will also help you shed the pounds, just stick to it. It took more than 21 Days to put those extra pounds on, it may take a few rounds to take it off!

It is important to remember that when you are new to exercise or you have just changed your fitness routine, your muscles may be storing water to protect themselves, they often hold onto water to repair themselves. . Once you get used to the workouts, some of the water will shed and you’ll drop weight. TRUST THE PROCESS, the results will come!

Keeping all that in mind, have you checked your inches lately? My scale as of today is up 3 pounds, but down 2 inches in my waist. This is a perfect example that the scale doesn’t always reflect progress. Also keep in mind it may be a good time to reevaluate and mix it up a bit, if it doesn't challenge you - it won;t change you!

Here are some tips that can help:

  • Eat fruits that are lower in sugar. Choose berries, pears, plums, oranges plums rather than bananas or dried fruit.

  • Eat from the top 1/3 of the lists. The top of the list is where the best options are, for best results stick with the items located at the top.

  • Make sure you’re eating all of the tsp.(healthy fat) that you’re allowed. They are there for a reason, they will help with weightloss not hurt it!

  • Increase your water! I always suggest that my challengers increase their water even if it is only by a few glasses a day!

  • DOUBLES! BURN MORE CALORIES - sometimes you need to PUSH HARDER!

I think overall you should MIX IT UP - workouts, water, food choices - add a little variety and give your body the jolt it needs!

You should also make sure you truly are doing the program as outlined - deciding to not eat all your containers or subbing one for the other is not the way it was

outlined and ultimately not the way it should be done! Listen to Autumn herself:
