The simple Shift Shop Nutrition Plan features a moderate calorie deficit and keeps things super clean. You will progressively eliminate grains, legumes (beans), and some of the more decadent carbs. This way by Week 3, you’re working hard on a protein-leaning, minimalist diet designed to keep you fueled and fit.
Most of us tend to “live to eat.” With the Simple Shift nutrition plan, you “eat to live.”
Don’t worry. It’s not all that bad. You’ll still get everything required to fuel your workouts and build muscle — including Shakeology to support your nutrition goals and help ward off any hankerings for foods not on the plan.
How Does Shift Shop Nutrition Plan Work?
The Shift Shop nutrition plan is straightforward and simple to figure out: You take a quick quiz to find your calorie level, then find the corresponding plan that tells you how much to eat from a series of color-coded food lists.
If you don’t, we strongly recommend getting them — they’ll make this easy-to-understand plan even easier.
What to Expect from the Shift Shop nutrition plan
- WEEK 1: The first week features a fairly standard balance of macro-nutrients with a moderate amount of starches and legumes (beans and peas).
- WEEK 2: The second week cuts back the starches and increases the protein.
- WEEK 3: Now it’s time to get serious.You’re eating starch- and legume-free so that all your carbs come from veggies and fruit.
It’s NOT a Low-Carb Diet
Keep in mind that the SHIFT SHOP nutrition plan is not a low-carb diet. At the start of the program, carbohydrates make up 40 percent of your daily diet, dipping down to 30 percent by Week 3.
It’s also not a ketosis diet, where carbs dip down to 10 percent of your diet. Ketosis diets also feature reduced protein, so as to force your body to utilize fat stores.
Given protein is important in helping with muscle growth and recovery, the SHIFT SHOP doesn’t take that route.
The Simple Shift is more similar with Paleo eating, thanks to the progressive elimination of grains and legumes.
The exception is the inclusion of dairy. However thanks to the large list of choices in the protein food list, you don’t have to eat dairy.
The nutrition in Simple Shift is rock-solid, created to give you results while maximizing performance, but what it’s really about is motivation.
It’s a hard plan — intended to inspire to push yourself further than you have in the past. So are you ready to make a shift?
