I told you all in a preview of Beach Body LIIFT 4 – Join My Journey that I decided to purchase the Beachbody On Demand LIIFT4 program and it would begin on Monday, July 16, 2018 and that it is an eight week program. I invited you to join me on this journey to peace with my physical appearance, so of course I’m going to bring you along as I progress through the program.
I started this program at 169.4 pounds. My measurements were 36.75″ waist; 37″ chest 37″; right arm 11″; left arm 11″; upper waist 32″; right thigh 21.5″; left thigh 23″.
So, what is the program?
Because of my weight falling within the range of 168.5-195lbs (irrespective of gender), I am supposed to eat between 1500-1799 calories. It follows the container eating style that is key to the 21 Day Fix beachbody program. It allows for me to have 4 servings of veggies, 3 servings of fruit, 4 servings of protein, 3 servings of carbs, 1 healthy fat, 1 serving of seeds & dressing, and 4 servings of oils and nut butters. However, once I got below 168 pounds, which happened in the first week, those numbers changed and I was now in Plan A which went to servings sizes of 3 veggies, 2 fruits, 4 protein, 2 carbs, 1 healthy fat, 1 seeds & dressing, 2 oils 7 nut butters. The plan allows for one cheat day but suggests it should either be on the Wednesday or Sunday so the extra carbs can fuel the next day’s workout. The servings sizes are as follows 1 cup for veggies and fruit, 3/4c (6oz) protein, 1/2c carbs, 1oz oil & nut butter/seeds.
