So you’ve just decided to invest in a new workout program and are wondering what exactly you need to get started. Luckily for you, we have compiled a list of the most important things you’ll need while following this program.  First of all, you’ll need the workouts themselves designed by Autumn Cabrese to work the entire body and get you in the best shape of your life.  The workouts focus not only on cardio as do many workout programs, but combine weights and resistance strength training to make sure you are toning your body in addition to doing cardio to burn fat and inches away.

The workouts include everything you need to get started but you must have some weights or dumbbells ranging from as low as 3 pounds to as high as 15 pounds.  In addition, you’ll need some tracking worksheets for the 21 day fix program to make sure you are eating enough calories each day and not over doing it. The 21 day fix tally sheets will show you exactly what amounts of portion control containers you should be eating and this helps you stay within your budget. It’s equally important to make sure that you are not under eating because if your body goes into starvation mode, you won’t be able to lose weight as quickly as you want.

What can I drink on this program?

Avoid all drinks that are high in carbs, calories and sugar. This means absolutely no soft drinks. Even avoid diet ones because that will just enhance your sugar cravings.  Stick to drinking cold water and maybe with a splash of lemon or lime juice. You can add stevia to make it like a lemonade.

How do the tally logging sheets work?

You will work out how many calories you should be consuming in order to lose weight, after doing this you will select the appropriate calorie bracket so you can lose between 1-2 pounds a week. These brackets are designed to work alongside color portion containers that you’ll use. You’ll have a certain number a day and making sure not to go over your designated amount. This will ensure that you lose weight.

Most women who need to lose weight will fall between the 1200-1499 calorie bracket and will use the appropriate worksheets for this.  If you are particularly tall or over weight, you might go up a bracket and use between 1500-1799. You can eat nearly as many vegetables as you like but you’ll eat smaller controlled quantities of carbohydrates and fruits.
