Carb cycling is a great option if you’re trying to break a plateau or get to a leaner look. This week I’m doing two days of carb depletion (countdown to competition eating plan) and then 1 day of 21 Day Fix EXTREME eating plan and repeating this for the rest of the week.

Q: Where do you get the black containers?

A: Click here to buy the same containers from amazon.

Q: Do you get bored of eating the same thing every day?

A: No at all! I switch it up on a weekly basis and choose my healthy favorites that I don’t mind eating often. I also add different seasonings to keep things interesting (check out the 21 Day Fix & 21 Day Fix EXTREME eating plans for seasoning recipes).

Q: Do you pre-cook all your food at the beginning of the week or do you just cut it up and package it? Does the food stay fresh all week?

A: I personally like to pre-cook all my food! I keep it properly refrigerated and find that it stays fresh up to 5 days. If you prefer, you can totally freeze the last 2 days or cook 2-3 days at a time.

Q: Can you put any of these meals in the freezer?

A: I personally don’t but I know people who do but just remember to thaw it in time.

Q: So lost…use the colored containers and dump into the larger ones?

A: The colored containers are from 21 Day Fix/21 Day Fix EXTREME. I use it to help me measure out the proportions of all my food then put it into my black chefland containers for organization and mobility reasons.
