    How. Much. Doe’s. It cost. To. Do this. I. Don’t. Have. A. Lot. Of. Money. But. I. Would. Like to. Do. This .

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Linda, you’re in luck! Our 15 Day Challenge is a free program ๐Ÿ˜€

        1. Caitlin Peterson

          There is circuit training, weight training, and some cardio. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. weight loss reviews

    Hey! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group?

    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content.
    Please let me know. Cheers

  3. Denise

    Should I use the Idealshape for the 15 day challenge if I have more than 25 lbs to loose?

    1. Lindsey Mathews

      If you’re doing the 15 day challenge I want you to use the IdealLean Protein powder (even if you have more than 25lbs to lose) since that’s what I used to write the meal plans around. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Tiffany Henderson

        If you don’t have the funds to get a protein powder is there a replacement for Ideal Lean?

        1. Kirsten Jackson

          If you can’t do IdealLean Protein, aim for a protein powder with at least 20g of protein and is low in fat, carbs, and sugar. For more specifics on substitutions, I would check out the substitution list in the back of the 15 Day Challenge nutrition eBook.

  4. April

    I just signed up for the challenge. But it doesn’t start till the 25th right?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Yep, That’s right! You’ll receive emails before the start date to get you ready for day 1, so keep an eye out ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. LA

    Is this program appropriate or useful for me? I have gained approx. 10 lbs. due to low thyroid..want to get it off..reasonably fit/active person..also I have to stay gluten free since this condition is an auto-immune disorder..thanks!!

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      I would recommend that you talk to your doctor before starting any kind of diet/nutrition plan. But this program could be a good option if you only have 10 pounds to lose.

  6. Amber

    Will it make a difference if we follow you meal plan or a different one while doing the workout? I’m in a financial situation that I can’t buy groceries again.

    1. Lindsey Mathews

      Yes it will make a difference. A huge part of your results is following the meal plan exactly. You may still see results just doing the workouts but sticking to the meal plan is HUGE! One thing to keep in mind is that I don’t use any “fancy” ingredients or foods you can only buy at health food stores. All the foods are “normal” foods you can buy at any grocery store.

  7. Amie

    Starting the 15 day on the 25th but had two quick questions.
    1. Do we eat all the meals that are laid out in the plan? So potentially could eat 6 meals in a day. Is that correct?
    2. After 15 days are over do you start it all over? I

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Yes, you eat all 6 meals every day. Trust me, you won’t be hungry on this plan. You can definitely repeat this program once it’s over. There are challengers that have completed the Challenge 3 times!

  8. Vivian Hinojosa

    Hello. Can you post a link to the meal plans? Thank you.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      The Challenge is free and when you sign up you’ll receive the meal plans and workouts ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      This was designed specifically for women, but we’ve also seen men get incredible results doing this program.

  9. Kaylie

    I wanted to sign up and typed in my regular Gmail email address and it’s saying something is wrong with it but it’s the only email I have… can you think of any reason why it won’t work? I understand I’m late for this round but have to wait for my protein powder to come in the mail anyway and would like to start on the next round. Thank you!

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Sorry about that Kaylie! I went in and manually added you to the Challenge that starts on Feb. 8th. You should start getting emails about the Challenge. Let me know if you need anything else ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Hannah

        I signed up for the challenge, but I haven’t gotten any emails about it?

        1. Kirsten Jackson

          I double checked and you’re definitely on our list and you should have received your first email already. Did you check your spam?

  10. Karla

    How do you maintain your body weight/muscle after finishing the challenge? Is there a recommend meal/workout plan?

    1. Lindsey Mathews

      If you want to maintain your results you’ll need to maintain a similar lifestyle of eating right and working out. You CAN loosen up a little bit and still maintain though. We will be having more programs coming out that you can follow after the challenge!

  11. Marge Dojka

    Hi Lindsey,

    I want to make sure Im prepared for Feb 8th start . I went to link for workouts and when i click on workouts (any of them) they dont start. Will they not be available until Feb 8th?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      That’s awesome that you’re getting prepared for the Feb 8th Challenge! The videos should be available for you to view. Try refreshing the page and see if that fixes the problem. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  12. Kristin

    Wher can I find your meal plan? I just ordered and since you are in a bcak-order till the 16th, I don’t think I will have the products for a few weeks

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      When you sign up you’ll receive an email outlining everything you need to know, including where to find your meal plans and workouts.

  13. Cynthia

    What is the difference between the IDeal Lean in the 15 DAy Challenge and the Ideal Shake in the 12 Week Challenge?

  14. Stella

    If I decide on doing the next 15 Day Challenge, will the meal plans be the same or hopefully new ones? It really covers 5 days, then it repeats again, so in 15 days you are consuming same meals 3 times. I’d love to redo if there is a different meal plan. Thank you for your help. This is Day 6 for me.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      The 15 Day Challenge does not change from one round to the next. But, keep an eye out for our 6 week challenge ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      The 15 Day challenge does not change from one round to the next.

  15. Amy

    When a recipe says use 3/4 c egg whites is that measured before or after cooking?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      It’s before cooking, much easier to measure that way ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Trudy Barnes

    I’m getting toward the end of my first 15-day challenge and have seen only minimal results, so I want to continue there program to see if I can lose much more weight and inches. Do you suggest signing up for the next one or waiting for awhile?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      There are challengers that have done multiple Challenges back-to-back and have seen great results! There’s no reason that you “have” to wait to start another Challenge after this one.

  17. Cindy

    I signed up for the challenge & can’t afford IdealLean. Should I just wait to do it until I can afford it, or would I be able to do it without it?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      If you can’t afford IdealLean Protein, try to find a protein supplement that has low to no fat/carbs/sugar.

  18. Shalini

    I want to start the challenge tomorrow but idealprotein doe snot have expidited shipping. I called the 800 number and it said not available so i left a VM. is it possible to receive the ideal lean protein in overnight shipping?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Hi Shalini,
      the fastest we can ship protein is 2 day shipping. Someone from our customer service team will contact you to help you figure everything out ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      If you wanted you could eat the ingredients separately. Make the protein into a shake using water and eat your scoop of peanut butter on the side.

  19. Jennifer

    I want to do this challenge but am currently doing your 12 week challenge and am right in the middle of it. Can I do this challenge as well or would it be better to finish the 12 week challenge first.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      I would recommend finishing the 12 week challenge first. There’s not really a way to do both at the same time because the nutrition is completely different. The nutrition plan is a major part of what makes the 15 Day Challenge so effective.

  20. Lisa Langer

    I would love to try your challenge, but the biggest issue I have is living in the country where watching the workouts is very choppy and pixel-ated even with my mobile hotspot. Do you have DVDs with your workouts or is there some other way to get them?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      We don’t have DVDs but I’ll definitely pass that suggestion on! You could always do them on your own without the video. In the back of the nutrition book Lindsey listed out all the workouts and circuits so you don’t need to follow along if you can’t/don’t want to.

      1. Lisa Langer

        Thanks – I actually woke up this morning thinking I could go thru the video and write down the exercises, so I can get the workouts in.

  21. Erika

    Is this a crash diet?
    I am scared to try this challenge if it is a crash diet. I have read rhey are not healthy. But i also dont know how to start my fitness journey.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      This is definitely NOT a crash diet. We do not recommend crash diets because they can be dangerous and bad for your health, plus they will not give you any lasting results. The 15 Day Fit Body Challenge was designed by Trainer Lindsey Mathews who is also a certified nutritionist. It’s a great way to jumpstart a fitness journey and begin learning good, long term habits for diet and nutrition.

  22. Susan

    On the jump start/flush days do we use one whole egg AND one cup egg whites scrambled together? Or just egg whites?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      The amount of each depends on your weight group, but yes it’s both the egg and the egg whites.

  23. elizabeth

    My weight hasn’t budged at all. I am on day 5…I am weighing all of my food and drinking the required water. Are their people who do not loose at all on this 15 day jumpstart?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Not everyone loses weight the same way. Be patient with your body and most of all, like Lindsey always says, trust the process! If you’re wondering about what others are experiencing on this challenge, hop on your private community Facebook page.

  24. Jessica

    I received an email saying the challenge only starts on the 2nd of May. Any way to start sooner ? I wanted to look nice for my bday,on the 28th of April ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Hey Jessica! Good news, your challenge actually starts on the 18th. There was a typo in that email, sorry about that. You’re going to look AMAZING on your birthday ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. Gemma

    Hey, I don’t seem to see the meal plan. Could you email it to me?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Hey Gemma, you should have received an email with a link to the 15 Day Challenge membership page. That page has your workouts on it along with your check ins and it has your meal plan for you to download. There should be a button that says “Nutrition eBook,” click that to download your meal plan.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Sorry about that, Lisa! I just signed you up and you should start getting the emails. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  26. Lezlie Shirley

    I currently have Thrive shake mix. Is it allowed? It has 2g Fat and 2g sugar? 15g protein

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Since it doesn’t have the same nutrition as IdealLean Protein (which has zero fat/carbs/sugar and 20g of protein) I can’t promise that you’ll have the same results, but you could always give it a try ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Stephanie

    How often do we eat the meals? Should they be consumed every 2-3hrs?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Yep! There’s more info in the book about scheduling your meals around your workouts too.

  28. Ann

    I signed up for the next challenge starting May 2 but have not received an email back.
    Wanted to look at meal plan and prepare.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      When did you sign up? I checked our system and we have you starting the challenge on May 9th.

  29. Tiffany

    Just had a couple of questions. First, if the program is free why don’t you just post your meal plans somewhere online? Not trying to be rude, just curious. Also I do weights and/or cardio daily but haven’t jumped on the protein powder bandwagon. Do your recipes require this? Will I see results if I follow the plan but omit the protein powder?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      There’s a lot more to the challenge than just the meal plans, we send emails with support and tips plus when you sign up you get access to the private social community to keep you motivated. Because we want you to see the best results we don’t want to just give out the meal plans without you getting the support to go with it. The protein is a big part of Lindsey’s meal plans because protein helps you burn more fat and build lean muscle which is exactly what you want if you want to get that lean, toned look. If you omit the protein you won’t be getting enough protein or calories. You’ll probably still lose weight but you might be losing muscle instead of just fat, which you definitely don’t want.

  30. Becky Stephenson

    Is there a way to download the workout videos. I am in a rural area and do not have very fast Internet. I could not do last night’s video because of the constant timeouts.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      There’s no way to download the workouts, but the eBook that has all your meal plans also has the workouts all written out so you can just go off of that.

  31. Tara

    My friend and I signed up and just ordered the protein powder but are unable to start this Monday. We can’t start until after the 13th of May. When does the next challenge begin?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      We start a new round of the 15 Day FBC every Monday. So there will be a new challenge starting on the 16th that you can be a part of ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. T

    Hi, the meal plan that works best for my diet has me eating a whole wheat tortilla for one of my meals but I am gluten-free. What can I substitute for this? Thank you!

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      A good substitution would be 65g of brown rice or 60g of quinoa.

      1. Karen

        This is fantastic. I’m on plan right now and I was going to substitute a corn tortilla but the brown rice sounds like a terrific option.

  33. Chrissy

    I started the 15 day challenge and am embarrassed to just now be asking this – but should we be doing any warm up prior to starting the videos? I know some programs recommend it and others say you get warm as you start to work out. Thank you!

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Some challenges do a warm up and cool down, but not this one. You could do that if you wanted, but it’s definitely not required.

  34. Karla

    Hello, I am lactose intolerant and have IBS. Would any of these products have milk in them? I am worried about the IBS as this could upset my stomach. So worried I will buy a product that won’t work for me with these conditions…

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      IdealLean Protein has 20g of pure whey protein which comes from milk, but because it’s “pure” it doesn’t contain lactose.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      There is one that starts on the 16th and one that starts on the 23rd. When you sign up you’ll get an email that tells you what your start date is.

      1. Courtney

        I’ve signed up for this twice and never received any emails?

        1. Kirsten Jackson

          I checked our system, and I see you in there so you should be receiving emails. Have you checked your spam and your promotions folder? Sometimes the challenge emails end up in weird places for some reason.

  35. Naomi

    Hi. I signed up for the 15 day challenge and want to prep my meals today but havent gotten the meal plan and workouts in email. Can you please send them so I can shop today. My crazy hospital shift starts tomorrow so I need it today or have to wait another week. Help!!

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Hi Naomi,
      I checked our system and it looks like you’re on the May 23rd challenge track. If you want to start this week you totally can, you just won’t start getting emails until the end of this week. I’ll send you the links you need to get started today.

  36. Kim

    I want to start on the 23rd. How do I sign up? Also, can I get the meal plan now so I can get groceries and prep food to start on May 23?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      If you sign up now you’ll be signing up for the challenge that starts on the 30th. If you really want to start on the 23rd sign up and then let me know once you have and I can send you everything you need. You won’t get all the emails but you’ll have the essential material.

  37. Isabel

    Hi, I do a 30-45 minutes walk everyday should I stop it while in the 15 days challenge? And also my challenge starts today but never got the email with my workouts and meal plans. Check es everywhere in my email boxes and nothing. Lidsey send me some info so I can start on time but wondering if it is the same information that I should have for the whole 15 days challenge

  38. Isabel

    Besides the daily workouts, can I add a 20-30 minutes on a elleptical?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Yeah, 20-30 minutes of elliptical is fine on top of your 15 day workouts. Just don’t go overboard and start going longer than that. The 15 Day Challenge workouts are definitely meant to challenge you so make sure you’re giving every workout your all and then see how much energy you have left.

  39. Melissa

    Hi, is this plan ideal for someone looking to lose 50 + pounds?

  40. Judy Fagan

    Hi Lindsey,
    I did the 15-day challenge and lost some inches as well as a few pounds (I really only need to lose about 5 more pounds. I would like to do the 15-day again, but I’m a runner and need more carbs as I am preparing for a 10-K on July 4 and will be doing a half-marathon in October. Should I do the 15-day again or one of your other programs (6-weeks / 12-weeks)?

    1. Lindsey Mathews

      Hi Judy! I would stick with either the 15 day or 6 week as the 12 week challenge is a beginner challenge and you’re already past that if you’ve done the 15 day. ๐Ÿ™‚ The 6 week will give you all new workouts that are a bit more challenging and more meal plan options. You get 11 meal plans instead of just 3. I would recommend doing the 15 day or 6 week but jumping up a meal plan to get more calories. If you still feel like you need more, which is very possible being a runner, you can jump up to the very highest one and see how you feel. If you love the program and want to do it more long term I would suggest the 6 week challenge because of the variety and options. There is also a very extensive substitution program so you can literally sub in almost anything you’re craving! It’s so amazing! I think you’d love it!


  41. Marcy

    I signed up a few days ago and haven’t received any emails. I was really hoping to get in on the 6/6 challenge…is that even possible?? Also, I am used to working out 1-2 hours a day (both cardio and strength training). I’m a little uneasy about only doing 20 minutes a day. Is it ok to add in my own workouts on top of the challenge workouts or best to keep it as is??

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      I’ll email you the stuff you need. And yes, you can continue doing your own workouts and add these on as a bonus at the end!

  42. Beth McBride

    I signed up today and was hoping to start on Monday (June 6th), but the next challenge doesn’t start until the 13th. I’m worried I’ll lose motivation! Can I start on my own once I receive the diet and exercise materials? Also, I workout 3 days a week doing weightlifting and other cardio/strength training. It’s a class at my gym that I intend to continue. If I add your workout on those days will it be too much based on the level of calories in the meal plan? Thanks!

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      You should be fine but give it a try and see how you feel! If you need an extra 100 calories or so you can add that in the form of 1/2 scoop protein and 1 rice cake or small piece of fruit. ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. Tammy

    Website won’t let me sign up for the free 15 day challenge

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Sorry about that Tammy! I just signed you up myself so you should be good to go ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Frances

    I do not eat eggs… For the first two days I know I can sub 99% ff turkey for egg whites. What can I sub for the whole eggs? Thank you!

  45. Gina

    Is it to latest to sign up for the 15 challenge the website won’t take my email address. Please advise. Thank you

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      You’re not too late Gina! I’m sorry you were having trouble signing up. I just signed you up myself and you should start getting emails ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. Ricki

    Hi! I’m still waiting to be added to the Facebook group, so in the meantime, I thought I’d ask my questions here (I am just finishing day 2 of the 15 day challenge):

    – what can I substitute for almond milk in the smoothies? almond milk upsets my stomach, although I am fine with nuts and nut butter. I used water yesterday and today

    – I was absolutely starving today and I’m sure its because of my high intensity hour-long workouts (I take a cross-fit like class at the gym). Should I add more calories to the meals?


    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Hey Ricki, sorry you haven’t been added to the group yet. I’ll see if I can get that figured out for you. As for you questions…

      – You can use half the amount of regular milk and supplement with water. So if the recipe calls for 1 cup of almond milk use 1/2 cup of low-fat milk and 1/2 cup of water.

      – If you’re feeling week doing other workouts you can eat 100 extra calories in approved foods.

  47. Donna Keebler-Bylsma

    I have signed up to join the 15 day challenge but I still haven’t gotten an email… is there anything else I need to do? I also joined the group but haven’t been accepted yet.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      You should start getting more emails this week. I double checked with your private Facebook group and you should be accepted now. Let me know if you have any other questions ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. Kathy Whittle

    I signed up for the challenge, but haven’t received any information in my e-mail. I would really like to do this challenge. Please look for my application and send me the workouts and menus to get started. Thank you.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Hi Kathy, I checked and you’re signed up for the July 18th challenge. It looks like you should have already received at least one email, I would check your spam folder if you can’t find it. I can send you the links to everything you need and you can start on the 11th if you would like, you just won’t start getting your emails until later.

  49. Tina Barr

    Besides water…what else are you allowed to drink? Tea/Coffee with Stevia?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Yep, those are good options! Except for on flush days where Lindsey recommends avoiding adding sweeteners. It’s also nice to create fruit infused waters or add lemon slices to your water.

  50. Jo

    I have an injured knee, and am going to physical therapy. Are there any modified exercises that I would be able to do that are low impact?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Lindsey will tell you in the workout videos how to modify each exercise ๐Ÿ™‚

  51. ess

    can i start the challenge on my own? i dont understand what happens when i start on the date specified by the email? do i get daily emails or tips ? how does it differ ? thank u

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hey, so you could start the challenge on your own. But when you start on your specified start date you will also be able to get access to the private Facebook page where other challengers will also be able to post. This actually helps a lot of people to find more motivation and accountability during the challenge. You will also be getting daily emails with fit tips and other helpful reminders for your challenge.

  52. Tasha

    I signed up last night for the 15 day challenge, however I have not yet received an email with the information. I’m assuming I need to order the protein powder, however I’m not sure how much, etc.

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hi Tasha, let me try to add you again, just in case it didn’t go through. And for the challenge you would just need one tub of protein as it is only 15 days. ๐Ÿ™‚

  53. Casandra dent

    Hi! I never got my info either after I signed up! I just ordered my protein yesterday but I signed up atleast 3 weeks ago and even checked my spam and didn’t get any challenge info

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Sorry about that Casandra! I signed you up again, so you should start getting emails soon. Let me know if you experience any other problems.

  54. Jaanvi Saxena

    Hi! I have started the challenge finally and I LOVE IT!! A big THANK YOU for putting it together along with the meal plan!
    I have few questions
    1. I was not able to complete all the reps in a circuit (I was only able to do 15 mountain climber each leg) should I start with day 2 the next day or stick to day 1 till I get it right?
    2. I have half a container left of Orgain Protein supplement which is 21 g of protein per serving. Can I finish it and then go for Ideallean?
    3. Is there a specific time or rule to do this challenge (early mornings or empty stomach etc.)?
    4. If I am doing this challenge first thing in the morning, what would be the ideal time to have the protein drink before or after the workout?


    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hi Jaanvi! I have your answers!
      1. No, just go on to day 2, just work super hard and do all that you can!
      2. Yeah you can finish yours, but ours is great because it is formulated for women and has 0 carbs, sugar, and fat, so it will help you reach your goals faster! Plus, it tastes great!
      3. No there isn’t a specific time you need to complete the workouts. We understand that everyone has different schedules and can’t do it at the same time, just make sure to get your workout in sometime during the day. And we don’t recommend working out on an empty stomach. You should get a good pre-workout meal in beforehand (we love IdealLean protein for that)!
      4. Before your workout, eat (or drink) your pre-workout meal an hour to half an hour before you workout to give it time for you to digest. And you can eat your post-workout meal right after exercising.

      Hopefully this answered all of your questions!

  55. Sarah

    Are there any vegetarian substitutions we can use in place of meats? If so how much per gram? Thank you!

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Yes there are! So there will be substitutions listed in the Nutrition plan for the challenge. And the grams you will consume will differ depending on the meal. You will just need to look at the meal, and choose options that will fit onto the macro range for that meal. ๐Ÿ™‚

  56. Grace

    I want to lose about 40 lbs how long will that take with this workout plan?

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hey Grace, so everyone is different and loses weight at different rates, plus it depends on how closely you stick to plan. Most people lose anywhere between 4 and 8 pounds during the 15 days, then many continue on and lose more. Also once you have completed this challenge you could move on to Trainer Lindsey’s 6 Week Fit Body Challenge which provides more options and meal plans and many have found A LOT of success there as well! https://www.trainerlindsey.com/

  57. Kristen

    Do you recommend adding in the bcaas with this challenge also even though it is not mentioned in the meal plan?

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hey Kristen, yes we definitely recommend drinking the BCAAs with the challenge! I believe that it is mentioned that BCAAs are a drink to choose from in the eBook. ๐Ÿ™‚

  58. Jenny

    With my job I find it hard eating 6 meals, can I make the meal plan into 3 meals. Breakfast, lunch and dinner?

      When you take the 15 Day Challenges we recommend eating all of the food on the plan. Some of the meals are very simple to make and just consist of a protein shake etc. I totally get that it can be hard to eat that often, but if you prep before hand it will make it a lot easier. But as long as you eat all of the food on the plan you could try to turn it into three meals if that works best for you.

    I’m supposed to start challenge next week, but I am doing the 12-week challenge also, on the 4th week. I need an extra boost that’s why I signed up for this challenge also. Is that ok that I’m doing both?

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Yeah you can definitely do both! The 15 Day Challenge is a great start to build up your strength and stamina! That is a great idea Michelle.

    I just had a baby but have compounded the weight from my previous pregnancy 2 yrs ago, I kept 10 to 15 pounds and now I have 15 more to lose from this pregnancy. I’ve never quite been like this, I’ve usually somehow gotten it off between. I’m 39. I feel confident I can do it I just feel lost with how to do this with my 2 little ones. I’m hoping I can jump in and really dedicate myself. I’m worried that with breastfeeding I might need to alter the diet or even wait?

      This is SO common with mothers. You would be a great candidate for Mommy Trainer’s free 15 Challenge. It’s designed to do at home, and has a meal plan that takes into account nursing. I would definitely speak with your doctor before making any changes to your diet, but this would be a great start for you! You can sign up here and get more information to speak with your doctor about ๐Ÿ™‚ https://www.idealraw.com/challenges/mommy-trainer.list

    I am 61 and saw my daughter in law doing this. I think I could manage the food portion, but I have bilateral knee replacements preventing me from kneeling and a partially torn rotator cuff right shoulder. Are there modifications for the exercises? (I am an ICU nurse…. nursing has been hard on my body)
    Is it OK to just do the diet plan?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. McKenzie Pinckney

      Hi Cheryl! You’re absolutely fine to just follow the meal plan. You’ll still see results with changing your diet; however, it’s still important to perform some form of exercise daily. Because your injuries prohibit you from certain movements, I would look into something low-impact, like water aerobics or yoga. That way you could be with an instructor who could show you modifications so as to avoid any further injury, thereby strengthening your knee and shoulder. Hope this helped ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Lindsey (and team)! I am very interested in this program, especially seeing that Lindsey is also a cerified nutritionist. I was an athlete through college (actually about to graduate) and have struggled with weight swings as well as simply maintaining a “fit” shape; regardless of how fast I am on the lacrosse field or how much I can run or weight lift, I have struggled every since elementary school (I actually used to see a nutritionist as a 5th grader). One of my biggest challenges is my diet-I have a lot of random food allergies and a lot of times feel like I am allergic to the healthy foods that are supposed to help me stay fit, help prevent weight shifts, and generally help maintain a healthy lifestyle. Often times programs advertised require diets that I cannot participate in with zero alternatives. I also have a little wear and tear on my body from varsity level sports over the years. I would love to have a discussion offline and see if there is a program that I can participate in with the same end goals, that will not kill me from meal plans to work out plans. So, if Idealfit would be a place for me and my circumstances, I am interested. Thanks in advance for any help/feedback!

      Hi Natalie! So with every challenge we have a list of food substitutions, so if you don’t like certain foods/are allergic to them, you can just sub out the item for another item in the same list: ie.e protein for protein, carb for carb etc. And as far as workouts go, you can modify them as you see fit! You can always sign up, and if you have any questions or comments you can contact customer service, or reach out to us here. And it is free!

    2. McKenzie Pinckney

      Natalie, yours is a unique situation. I’d love for you to email me personally and we can chat about some alternatives. Perhaps you could give me information on which foods aren’t good for you. Email me at mckenzie.pinckney@thehutgroup.com. I’d love to talk to you more about this and hopefully find a solution.

    I am not a big “sweet” eater at all, nor do I like chocolate. Can I switch my meal 6 for just a strawberry ideal lean drink with cup of berries?

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      There is a list of approved substitutions that you can look at. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am currently on the 3rd day of Lindsey’s 15 day challenge. I’m hitting my water targets but was wondering if I am able to drink anything besides water and coffee?
