How to do the 21 Day Fix If You’re A Vegan/Vegetarian

21 Day Fix Vegan Style!!

The 21 Day Fix is taking the health world by storm. It’s an amazing way to lose weight, get healthy, learn portion control, and revamp your diet. 

One complaint I’ve heard over and over again is that it’s just not set up well for those who choose the vegan/vegetarian life style. And it’s true. With the original plan, the only protein options that are compatible with a vegetarian life are: 
– eggs
– egg whites 
– yogurt 
– greek yogurt 
– Shakeology 
– tempeh 
– tofu
– veggie burger
– cottage cheese
-protein powder

Cut out the options that don’t work for a vegan life style and you’re not left with many options. Many people have modified the plan to fit the vegan lifestyle by using beans and quinoa in the place of reds, but that can really mess up your carbs if you’re not careful. 

Thankfully, Beachbody has come out with a new plan, strictly for vegans & vegetarians. 

You can see the full plan here.


The biggest changes are in the protein and yellow containers. You now have two categories of yellows (A and B) instead of one. The yellows in category A are better than the ones in B, so you’ll be eating more of those than from A. 

As far as the protein goes, beans, lentils, edamame, peas, refried beans, and seitan have been added to the red list. Vegetarians can add yogurt, greek yogurt, eggs, egg white, and cottage cheese to the list as well. 

These changes are a little complicated on the surface, but once you get started, it gets easier. 

I personally am not a vegan, but I will be doing a round of the 21 Day Fix as close to vegan as possible to see how my body does without animal products. 

Are you vegan/vegetarian? I’d love to hear about why you chose that lifestyle and how it’s helped you.

    I have a question for you, I see on the vegan plan, you can do 1 1/2 scoops of vegan protein powder as a RED, however, do you have to mix this with water? It doesn't really say and yet, you wouldn't just gum down the powder by itself. I see where you can have 16oz of unsweetened almond milk 3 times a week to replace your yellow B. Would it be ok to have 8oz daily instead?

      There are different schools of thought about this.

      Autumn has said that 8 oz of unsweetened almond milk a day counts as nothing. It's so little calories that there is no need to count it. However, if you are going by the book, you don't get to drink it more than 3 times a week, so you would mix it with water. Personally? I think a little almond milk isn't going to hurt anything!
