Shift Shop Week 1 Meal Plan & Menu

I am sooooo excited to have started my first round of Shift Shop, Beachbody’s newest program that’s meant to really reset your mind & ramp up your fitness in just three weeks! Each week, the workouts get progressively harder (yup, there are 3 different sets of workouts for this program, 8 total workouts included…plus bonus ones as well if you have the Beachbody on Demand All Access Membership!), and with this program, you hone in your nutrition more each week as well. That means that each week you are cutting down on the starches in your diet (potatoes, beans, etc) and adding in more protein & vegetables. So by the 3rd week, you’re eliminating starches and getting your carbs from fruit & veggies, and you’re eating much more protein so that your body can shred some serious fat & lean itself out in a shorter period of time! Sounds tough, right? But honestly, my philosophy is that it’s really only 3 weeks…and only one of those weeks completely cuts out starchy carbs..I can handle that! And in my case, I need a good food reset after the indulging I’ve been doing this summer, so this program could not have come at a better time.

Shift Shop is all about, you guessed it, MAKING A SHIFT. So I’m soooo ready to mentally & physically shift myself UPWARDS to reach my goals! And I figured that since the meal plan is different from what I’m normally used to with the 21 Day Fix, that I’d also help y’all out by sharing my meal plans here as well in case you need some inspiration for your own Shift Shop journey! And the awesome thing about Week 1 is that it’s still really similar to my 21 Day Fix meal plan. For Week One of Shift Shop, my container counts all remain the same as they are for 21 Day Fix, however, the difference is really in the yellow container department! With the 21 Day Fix, you get a lot of options for what to fill your yellow container with, including things like pasta, bread, rice, tortillas and other grains. With Shift Shop, your options are more limited as the premise is to eliminate grains from your diet for the full 3 weeks. So you’ll notice that I’ll be eating lots of sweet potatoes, regular potatoes & beans in order to get in my starchy carbs!

If you’ve checked out my meal plans that I’ve put up previously on my blog, you’ll notice that I tend to really keep things as simple as possible. I try to choose only 1 option for lunch all week and stick with the same couple of snacks as well! It just makes planning & prepping soooo much easier. But feel free to add some more variety if you’d like!
