Focus T25 Nutrition Plan

focus t25 nutrition planIt’s a common phrase that 20% of your results are due to your workouts and 80% will be due to your nutrition.  I’ve seen this to be true myself.  If you workout hard, but then feed your body junk, you’re not going to see the results you want.  I made this mistake during my first month of Insanity.  I didn’t follow the nutrition guide at all, and didn’t lose a single pound.  Then starting in month 2, I followed the meal plan and logged everything I ate and guess what?  I lost 17 lbs that month!  I think that speaks volumes to how important your nutrition really is.  With that being said, I’ve had a few questions about the Focus T25 Nutrition Plan, so I wanted to give you my take on it.

Focus T25 Nutrition Plan – 2 Options

Part of the design of Focus T25 is to be accessible to lots of people and to make getting healthy simple.  Workouts are only 25 minutes long, so that’s fairly easy to follow.  The Focus T25 Nutrition Plan is designed to be simple and easy to understand as well.  You don’t need to do a ton of math to figure out how many calories you should be eating or worry too much about your macros.  You take this 4 step quiz:

As you can see the Focus T25 Nutrition Plan  really only gives you two options.  You’re either going to fall in the 1200 calorie group or the 1600 calorie group.  There are no other options.  When I plug my answers in, I fall in the 1600 calorie group.  Then, after you have your calorie goal, you basically eat 5 meals a day from the nutrition guide and you’re set.  All the meals take under 30 minutes to prep, so they’re very quick and easy.  During the day, for the 1600 calorie meal plan, the Focus T25 Nutrition Plan advises to break down your meals as follows:

Meal 1: 450 calories
Meal 2: 150 calories
Meal 3: 450 calories
Meal 4: 150 calories
Meal 5: 450 calories

So you can see the Focus T25 Nutrition Plan breaks it up into breakfast, lunch and dinner with a snack in between each meal.

Should You Follow the Focus T25 Nutrition Plan?

Now the natural question is, “Should I follow the Focus T25 Nutrition Plan?”  In my opinion, that really depends where you’re at.  If you’re just starting your fitness journey and you get overwhelmed by other formulas and complicated ways of figuring out your nutrition plan, this could be a great option.  It’s very simple.  I think anyone could follow the plan and be confident that it will help them see good results.

On the other hand, if you’ve been working out for a while this may not be the right plan for you.  I’ve trained my metabolism to the point where I can take in about 2500 calories and maintain my weight.  So for me, dropping down to 1600 calories wouldn’t be a good idea.  If our metabolism is faster like mine, then I wouldn’t suggest dropping calories so low.

I also wouldn’t suggest dropping your calories that low if you’re over 185 lbs.  I personally just think the calorie count is a bit low for people who are heavier.  A person who’s 185 lbs or 250 lbs would each be eating 1600 calories, and to me that just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

Do I think you can see good results with the Focus T25 Nutrition Plan?  Absolutely!  If you’re just getting started and you’re a little lighter to begin with, then go for it.  The great part about it is that it’s simple.  I really like that!  But if you’re more of a seasoned veteran, then the calorie count is just a little low in my opinion and you would be better off bumping up your calories to keep your metabolism strong.
