3 Day Quick Fix Review

So, this is way later than it should be. Like… way late. I did the 3 day quick fix over a month ago. Oops.

Overall, I like the 3 day quick fix. It’s a painless way to reset eating habits. If you aren’t familiar with the 3 Day Quick Fix, basically, it’s a 3 day eating plan that is made up of protein, veggies, and 2 servings of starchy carbs. I don’t find it “fun” and I don’t LOVE it, but it’s a whole lot better than the 3 day refresh (which is basically all shakes.)

So day one, I followed my plan. I felt really good. No brain fog, energetic. Until about 7 pm, when I felt like I had crashed. My heart started palpitating, I had a headache and I felt nauseas. I tested my blood sugar and I was having a hypoglycemic episode. I had a piece of candy to boost me back up. When I felt better, and my blood sugar was back to normal, I ate my last meal, but added a piece of fruit. Day 2 and 3, I also added a piece of fruit to lunch and dinner. No more hypoglycemic episodes. If you have trouble controlling your blood sugar, make sure to talk to your doctor before trying the 3 Day Quick Fix!

Many people lose several pounds during the 3 days. I lost 1 pound (yay!), but I wasn’t looking for weight loss, I wanted to break some bad habits I had let creep back in.

So what did I eat?

Breakfast- oatmeal and eggs. I added pepper to the eggs and cinnamon to the oatmeal.

Snack- sweet potato and extra lean ground turkey. I seasoned the turkey with sausage inspired spices- sage, onion, garlic, ground mustard, and pepper.

Lunch- Fish and Asparagus. I layered the asparagus and cod in a foil packet, drizzled coconut oil, lemon juice and dill and other seasonings. Then baked it about 20 minutes. Day 2 and 3, I also had an orange.

Snack- Chicken and Zucchini. Sautéed the zucchini in coconut oil and used a seasoning mix on both.

Dinner- Fish and Green beans. This ended up being kind of tricky because we had sporting events all three days of this. So  I ended up taking mine on the go. This had EVOO added to it, so I counted that for my oil instead of coconut oil for this meal. This is also where I added an apple.

Snack- chicken and broccoli. Husband grilled it for me, using the southwest seasoning from the 21 Day Fix plan. I drizzled coconut oil over the broccoli and added lots of pepper.

The food was great. I seasoned it like crazy because I like lots of flavor. I also had lots and lots and lots of water.

Also this program is only for 3 days and not more then once every 21 days. They recommend doing it at the end of a round of 21 day fix. I like t do mine at the beginning so kick things off.
