T25 5 Day Fast Track Plan

T25 Fast Track Plan
T25 Fast Track Plan

When you order your T25 fitness program it comes with a great little 5 day fast track.  It's meant to get you started on the right track FAST!!!  I like it!

We all want to see results and honestly if you are like me you have no idea what to do!  I literally need someone to tell me step by step to eat this when and workout here!  If you give me that step by step guidance I can do it!  I really think thats why I love Beachbody so much because every single one of their workouts are like that! They lay it all out there for me, basically IDIOT proof as I would say!  No more going to the gym wondering if what I'm doing is actually going to get me the results I'm after.
Focus T25 Fast Track

So what is the 5 day fast track?  It is a 1,100 calorie a day plan that contains a healthy balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fats.  You may be a little hungry for the next 5 days. That is totally normal.  Remember, just because your body wants food doesn't always mean you need food.  However, if you are feeling low on energy, lagging in your workouts, or having problems concentrating, you might benefit from a few more calories.  You can do this by doubling up on one or both of your daily snacks

What to drink?  WATER IS BEST!  Caffeine free herbal tea is also a good option.  Coffee is ok with breakfast, but skip the milk, creamer and sugar.  Avoid alcohol, sports drinks, juices and sodas, even diet sodas.

Once you have completed the 5 day fast track, move on to the Focus T25 nutrition guide.  You can continue to use these recipes but make sure that you are eating enough calories!!
