21 Day Fix Bracket Calculation:

Here’s how you adjust the 21 day fix program if you are currently breastfeeding: Do the calculation that comes with your kit then add 500. It may bump you up to the next bracket or you may stay in the same depending on the number. Either way is perfect to follow depending where you fall.

● Replacing one meal a day with Shakeology

Here’s my favorite while I was breastfeeding:

1 Scoop of Vanilla or Chocolate Shakeology
1 to 2 tsp Peanut butter
1/2 a banana (frozen for a thicker shake)
1 cup of Milk or plain unsweetened almond milk, or personally I love using just plain water.
10-12 ice cubes
Blended until smooth.

Always check with your doctor before starting any exercise or nutrition program
