I am so excited to get started with Beachbody’s newest fitness program, 80 Day Obsession.  Along with 80 unique workouts the program includes a timed-nutrition eating plan.  I love to meal plan but this is one I struggle with.  To help make creating your own 80 Day Obsession Meal Plan a lot easier I’ve come up with a simple meal planning system that includes meal ideas & a FREE meal plan template you can access in my resource library.

80 Day Obsession Meal Plan

What is 80 Day Obsession

80 Day Obsession is a step-by-step fitness and nutrition program designed to flatten and tone your abs while lifting and firming your butt. It includes 80 challenging workouts spread over 13 weeks, plus an Eating Plan that’s based on the advanced theory of Timed-Nutrition. Each of the 80 workouts is filmed live, so you get a different experience every day. 80 Day Obsession is only available through Beachbody On Demand.

You can learn about and read my full review of Beachbody on Demand here.   I’ve really enjoyed having access to a variety of workouts.  They’ve also started offering a number of on demand only workouts like Shaun T’s Shaun Week and Autumn’s A Little Obsessed.

80 Day Obsession Meal Plan

At first glance this meal program looks like it should be so easy.  It’s broken down into color coded portion control containers: red= protein, green=veggies, yellow=carbs, purple=fruit, blue=healthy fats, orange=seeds & dressings, tsp=oils & nut butters.  Simple right?

Only, my brain doesn’t work like that for some reason.  I like to meal plan by recipes.  Picking out single elements for each category makes my brain hurt and makes the menu very unappealing.  I know, strange.  It’s much more exciting to think about eating turkey taco lettuce wraps than it is to think about eating ground turkey, lettuce, bell pepper, onion, olive oil.

Timed Nutrition

One thing that makes the 80 Day Obsession meal plan a little easier for me is the timed nutrition part.  The color coded meal plan is very similar to 21 Day Fix.  You can find my 21 Day Fix review here. With 21 Day Fix you are given a certain amount of each colored container for the day.

What I really like about the timed nutrition meal plan is Autumn tells you exactly what containers to eat when.  Instead of eat 5 greens a day the program lists the containers for each meal.  For me it makes meal planning that much easier.  Each meal is scheduled around the time you plan to workout each day.

Meal Plan Template

First, you’ll need to use the program materials to figure out which Eating Plan you fall under.  I am eating plan B.

Next,  you’ll need to figure out what time you plan to work out.  I usually workout in the morning but since 80 Day Obsession is 60 minutes instead of my usual 30 minutes I’ve moved my workouts to lunch time.  In order to follow the meal plan and get my first meal in before I work out I would have to wake-up an hour earlier.  I am not a morning person and realize this is not a realistic expectation.

After you’ve planned your workout time you can plan your meal times. The program materials have meal time suggestions for morning, midday and evening workouts.

Use the 80 Day Obsession Meal Plan Template  to fill in your meal times and meal order. If you’re not a plan B you will need to change up the containers for each meal to fit your meal plan. You can access the Meal Plan Template in my free resource library. Get the password for the free library by subscribing at the bottom of this post.

80 Day Obsession Meal Ideas

Now that you’ve got your template it’s time to fill in what you’re actually going to eat for each meal.  To make it easy to fill in meals I’ve put together recipe ideas for each meal with the containers already figured out.  Then each week you can just pop in a recipe for each meal slot. The prep work I’ve done for you will make meal planning quick & easy.

I usually repeat the snack-type meals every other day.  So you just need to pick two for the week.  I also have leftovers for lunch everyday so I just take whatever the dinner meal is and copy it to the lunch spot as well.  The dinner spot usually has an orange container and the lunch doesn’t so I just omit the orange container for the lunch meal.

Meal ideas for each meal block can be found in my free resource library. Get the password for the free library by subscribing at the bottom of this post.  You can also find Plan A Meal 2 recipes here and Snack Recipes here.

Many of the recipes I’ve included are from the Fixate cookbook.  You can access the Fixate cookbook and recipes through Beachbody On Demand.  You can also purchase a hard copy of the Fixate cookbook through Beachbody. I’ve also included recipes from Beachbody programs like T25 and Body Beast.

Hints

Putting together this meal plan I discovered a few things:

Supplements

I’m going all in on 80 Day Obsession and plan on doing all of the suggested supplements.

Beachbody Performance

I’ve been a Shakeology fan for years (see why I love Shakeology here).  I’ve also used the Beachbody Recover formula.  I really like the orange flavor.  For 80 Day Obsession I’ve also ordered Energize, Hydrate and Recharge.  I’ll let you know what I think.

If you’ve got 80 Day Obsession meal plan ideas please share them! I’d love to feature them in my Weekly Menu and add them to my meal options.

  1. Thank you for posting some ideas for 💚💜💙! I felt like my brain couldn’t come up with anything except veggie/fruit/hummus. And I’d rather use my blue container a little differently.

    1. You’re welcome Jenny! It was hard to come up with a food combination that you would want to eat together for that container set. How is the program going for you?

  2. Hi Leslie,
    First how do you like the 80 Day obsession so far? I plan on starting in another week. I’ll be finishing up my 3rd round of 21 day fix. So question maybe you’ll have some insight. I workout early in the morning, I get up right before 5 and leave myself an hour to complete my workout. Before I start getting ready for work. I’m gone until about 6-630 in the evening and at that time I’m preparing dinner for my preschool aged son. So here’s the tough question I’ve been trying to rack my brain about… I REALLY don’t want to get up at 330-4 just to eat a snack prior to working out. Do you think that pre-workout meal is a must that early in the a.m.? And then it’s got to sit for an hour before working out. Then the pre-workout… then the workout blah blah blah. Do you see where I’m going? At night I just can’t fit the workout into my schedule it has to be in the morning. I’d really love for you to share your thoughts on this. I can’t be the only one out there with this dilemma. I look forward to hearing your thoughts… and thank you so much for the meal ideas. That’s awesome.

    1. Hi Bridget! Congrats on finishing your 3rd round of 21 Day Fix!
      I am loving 80 Day Obsession! I love that the timed nutrition gives me more structure to plan meals and the workouts, even though they are longer, are actually really fun and don’t seem to drag – playing music helps. I’m seeing some great results so far. I used to workout in the morning but since I’m not a morning person I moved my workouts to my lunch hour. I work from home so it was an easy option for me. I understand that is not an option for everyone.
      You are certainly not alone. This has come up a lot in the 80 Day Obsession Coach Test Group Facebook Page. Autumn says just to do the best you can. She says it’s ideal to eat before you work-out even if it’s 15-20 minutes before. You can also switch your Shakeology (red, purple) with your Pre-workout meal (red, yellow, green). But if you can’t it’s not the end of the world.
      If I were you I would get up at 5, have your Shakeology, if you feel like you need some extra energy drink Energize a few minutes before your workout (it will kick in during the middle of your workout and help you make it through). You can use Hydrate during or after to replenish electrolytes. Then have your Pre-workout meal (red, yellow, green) when you would normally have Meal 1 (red, purple). Does that make sense? Let me know if you need help with the meal plan template.

  3. I’m on B plan as well and still am having a hard time coming up with creative purple, green, blue combos that I can eat in a hurry at work. I work for a surgeon and I can’t heat or take very long to get it in. I’ve been doing a banana or apple, carrots and pb or guac and occasionally cheese. I have made the spinach salad and use 1/2 blue of feta and 1/2 amount of my walnuts chopped. This just takes longer to eat. I’m trying muffins this week for purple and blue but will still have to do a veggie.

    1. Kathryn, Those purple, green, blues are tough to come up with. I really like Autumn’s Banana Apple Muffins from the Fixate cookbook. They are delicious and easy to eat on the go. I usually eat some mini carrots with them. I’ll have to try the spinach salad with feta & walnuts. That sounds good. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thank you so much for the meal plans….and doing the hard work. 😉 I was confused at first but this has been a great tool to further meal plan.
