When compared to the Insanity Nutrition Plan, the Focus T25 Nutrition guide is very simple and easy to follow. That is not surprising because the entire T25 Workout Program is designed to attract people with busy lives who want to stay in shape, look great, eat right – without having to spend too much time doing it. That is why the workout program is 25 minutes a day, 5 days a week. That same simplicity is carried over into the design of the diet plan, which can be summarized as this the rule of 5. The meals are to be prepared within 5 minutes, with 5 ingredients and you are going to be eating 5 small meals each day. We have really detailed everything you need to know below, but to get you started, here is a quick and dirty video that does an excellent job of explaining what the Focused T25 Nutrition Plan is about.
T25 Nutrition Guide (Get it Done Nutrition Guide)
When you buy the T25 Workout program, there is a nutrition calendar and guide that comes with it. You can find them in the DVD case in the product box. Here is what the Focus T25 Nutrition guide looks like:
How it Works
The first step of the T25 Diet plan requires you to take a 4 Step Calorie Quiz. This helps to determine (based on the answers you provide) whether you should be on one of the two calorie intake requirements. You are either going to be on 1,200 calories or 1,600 calories per day, depending on the outcome of the quiz. You should therefore answer the questions as best as you can. It is important for your own health and energy level to consume the appropriate calorie level per day while you go through the program in order to get the best results. Here is what the quiz looks like:
Once you get your score and determine whether you are going to be on the 1,200 calorie diet or the 1,600 – you go to step 2. This involves breaking down your total calorie intake per day into 5 small meals. Here is what that looks like:
It’s pretty much eating a breakfast, lunch and dinner with two small meals in between (snack). As you can see, this is really easy to follow and should be a no brainer when it comes to figuring out how much to eat at what time of the day.
T25 Meal Plan
Some may say that the daily calorie intake is too low. But that’s where the meal plan comes in. You will be surprised how full you can get, even from less food – if you choose the right kind of food.
Now that you know how much calories you can eat each day and and the breakdown of your 5 small meals a day, it’s time to look at the meal recommendations in the Nutrition Guide? The Focus T25 Nutrition guide has meal suggestions for you. And the best part? They are designed to be prepared in 5 minutes or less. Again, as you can see, everything about this program is designed to be short but effective. Everybody has 5 minutes to prepare a meal.
Make time and prepare the recommended meals. Eating right during the program will help keep you energized during the workout and after, which is very important because if your energy level goes down, then your performance will suffer – which will affect the results you get.
Focus T25 Recipes
The nutrition guide includes 25 recipes, each with 5 ingredients or less and designed to be prepared within 5 minutes. Keep in mind that once you get a basic understanding of how the meals are designed, you will be able to come up with your own recipes that keep the core principles in mind but provide you further variety in your meals. We will do future posts providing details about these individual recipes and feedback from those that have tried them.
5 Day Fast Track Guide
Another great feature of the T25 Diet guide is the 5 Day Fast Track guide that is included. This is to get you started on your first 5 days of the program. It is a complete plan that includes exercise for the day and what you are supposed to eat and when. It is to jump start you on the program and bring it all together.
We will now end this review of the Focus T25 Nutrition plan with this video that we think does a GREAT job of explaining the T25 Nutrition guide, the meal types, including the 25 Keep it real foods you need to be eating. It’s worth watching and you will benefit from the knowledge.
