Autumn Calabrese’s 80 Day Obsession recommends following a strict Timed Nutrition meal plan, pre- and post- workout supplements, and Shakeology. But how do these things play into your results? Find out what to expect and if it’s worth doing 80 Day Obsession without any of the three aspects of the program.
Can You Do 80 day obsession Without The Meal Plan?
If you’ve looked over the Timed Nutrition meal plan and it’s not for you, you could technically follow another nutrition plan.
With that said, 80 Day Obsession without the meal plan is kind of like doing a strength program with just light weights. It’s better than nothing – but you’re not going to get the best results you could.
If it’s just too much for you though, you could always follow another diet and see how it works for you. We’d recommend counting macros or the 2B Mindset. Both allow for a little more freedom and less prep.
Is Doing the 80 Day Obsession Meal Plan Without Supplements Worth it?
Will the supplements help your results and energy? Absolutely.
Should you just junk the whole meal plan if you can’t afford Energize and Recover?? No way!
The recommended supplements play a role in helping your energy and results, but if you follow the 80 Day Obsession meal plan without supplements you’ll still see results.
You’re working out and eating right. That is the equation for a healthier, leaner body!
So What Do the Supplements Do Then?
Energize and Recover are both recommended for this program. Each one plays a specific role, and its very unlikely to find a food combination that could do the same thing they do.
Energize is designed to improve your exercise performance and increase your energy and endurance. You take it 15-25 minutes before you workout.
Recover speeds muscle recovery, promotes lean muscle growth and helps with muscle soreness and recovery. It’s taken right after your workout.
Which one is better?
If you’re debating between either one – honestly, it’s going to come down to which one you want more. Do you want to power through your workouts? Get Energize. Tired of sore muscles and want to build lean muscle? Recover.
The best solution is really to use them together.
Can You Do 80 Day Obsession Without Shakeology?
Just like the supplements, Shakeology is going to be beneficial to your results. With that said, it shouldn’t be Shakeology or nothing.
Shakeology is designed to help you:
- lose or maintain your weight
- reduce cravings
- have energy
- with digestion.
All of these can be beneficial. The other great thing about Shakeology is that it’s easy to grab on the go.
It also packs enough of your vitamins and super foods you may be able to quit taking a vitamin! Of course, talk to your doctor first, but we were able to count Shakeology as our multi-vitamin!
There are also so many flavors – you’re bound to fall in love with a few!
