21 Day Fix...on a Budget!

*I received this item free for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own*

I'm sure by now you've heard of, or maybe even tried, the popular diet method called the 21 Day Fix. Now the official 21 Day Fix is pretty expensive, like $80+ typically. That's a whole lot of money for some color coded plastic containers. Luckily there are more affordable options out there, like Prefer Green's wonderful set that's only $12.89 (with free Prime shipping).

The set comes with 7 different colored containers in various sizes. Each color represents a different category, like fruits, veggies, fats, ect.

The purple (fruit) and green (veggies) are the biggest container, and hold about a cup each. The main focus of the 21 Day Fix is portion control control, which is why you only get so many container fulls a day. The amount of containers you get depends on your current weight, but basically you get several hundred less calories than you actually need per day. And you get more protein, fruits, and veggies than anything else, so you should in theory be eating much healthier than usual.

I'm going to be honest and say there is a lot of up front work involved in this diet. I had to figure out my number of containers per day and then design my 21 day menu based on those numbers. If you hate meal prep this isn't the diet plan for you. I found it easiest to have my meals repeat, and that way I could make a batch and portion it all out so I'd just grab and go throughout the week. Today was day 1 and so far I'm pretty happy with the amount of food I get to eat. I'm not feeling starved at all and I picked really tasty food that is still super healthy.

If you are interested in doing the 21 Day Fix I really recommend getting this set for a fraction of the price (and I found the 21 Day Fix book online for free). Why pay $80+ when you can pay just under $13? And if you are interested in my menu and whatnot let me know down below in the comments and I'll stick them in the Downloads tab.
