21 Day Fix Meal Plan – Budget Friendly Meal Plan

21 day fix meal plan (PLAN A): Complete eating plan between 1200 and 1330 calories and under $65 for 2 people and 6 days.

Do you still think healthy eating is expensive and losing weight is hard?

Let me show you how to make your life easier right now!

Today I have a complete meal plan for a daily calorie intake of 1300. This weight loss meal plan works with counting calories and with the 21 day fix. It is high in protein and low in carbs.

When I did this 21 day fix meal plan I lost 3 lbs. in 1 weak (and 4 lbs. in 10 days)! And I was cheating 3 times (there was a pizza, taco bell, and sweet frog…haha) So I think you can easily lose 4 lbs a weak with actually sticking to it.

I have to say, that I worked out frequently. Now you might think this is too hard..

but wait…

You don’t have to sign up at the gym, or spend hours sweating. I did 3x 20-40 minute workout at home and 2x just 15 minutes on an elliptical. The weekend is for rest.

Losing weight without working out is possible too. You usually burn around 2000 calories a day. If you eat according to this meal plan you have a difference of 700 calories each day which would lead to a 1.5 lbs weight loss per week.

If you are interested in working out and keeping it simple, I can highly suggest to check out BeachBody on Demand. This is like the Netflix of workouts! You will have unlimited access to so many workouts from yoga, cardio, dance workouts, to weight, HIIT, 21 day fix, body beast, insanity and so so many more (even maternity workouts!) that you can simply do in your living room. There is a workout for every level and interest plus meal plans and cooking shows.

TIP: If you have a hard time cutting back on the food, try this 1500-1800 calorie meal plan!

21 Day Fix Meal Plan: Breakfast

The yogurt bowl is mixed with oats and 1 cup of fruits. Make sure to add the full amount of all ingredients listed, as this will give you energy for the day.

I like to cut up all fruits to store in a large bowl in the refrigerator for easy access. This way I can simply scoop out 1 cup in the morning for my cereal bowl and 1 cup for snack #2.

The breakfast equals 550 calories and for the container count: 1 1/2 protein, 1 carbs, 1 fruit.

Snack #1

I like to boil a big pot of eggs for about 11 minutes. Rinse them off with cold water and store them in the fridge. Now I can take 2 eggs out every day without any additional work, or simply pack them for on the go.

The nuts are a simple snack for in between too. Make sure you only eat 12 a day!

Calories: 240 Container: 1 protein, 1 healthy fats


The lunch equals 2 containers vegetables (2 cups) per person with 2T of dressing. I usually chop 1/2 cucumber and 1/2 cup carrots or bell pepper and add one cup of spinach. I like this balsamic vinaigrette for a dressing and it only contains 90 calories for 2T.


Snack #2

For this snack I cut up all my fruits and store them in a bowl for easy access. You can eat 1 cup of fruits or blend them with some water into a smoothie.

Dinner #3

1 Cauliflower mashed makes about 3-4 cups. This dinner serves 1 container veggies and 1 1/2 container protein (no carbs here, you can add the carbs or just leave them out for a skinny dinner recipe)

Use 4 small chicken breasts and season with balsamic vinegar, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Slice a tomato and add it on top. You can top this with mozzarella cheese. Put in the oven at 400F for 30 minutes (until the pink is gone).

For the mashed cauliflower, cut off the leaves and dice the vegetable. Cook until soft (about 15 minutes) and drain the water. Season just like you would season mashed potaotes. I like to use nutmeg, or old bay, salt and pepper.
