In 2014, Beachbody and I created a breakthrough in helping people manage their nutrition for the 21 Day Fix program with my color-coded portion-control food containers.

So far, we have helped millions of people change their lives, while still enjoying the foods they love. Simple, right? Job done.

Hold up. I’ve learned some things that make it 10 times more effective.

I’ve personally run more than 15 Challenge Groups with 300,000 people in the last five years. I’ve continued my own nutrition research and worked one-on-one with clients to learn what works best in every situation.

I answer questions on social media every single day to help people overcome their personal nutrition obstacles so they can get results, keep their families healthy, and fine-tune their nutrition for high performance.

I’ve learned so much, and we’ve fine-tuned how to get the most from these containers with so many recipes, strategies, and healthy hacks that the container system is now easier to follow, more effective than ever, and so simple to personalize that they can be customized to any fitness program and any goal.

If you want to lose weight and enhance your health at the same time, this is the program for you.

I’ve investigated. I’ve learned. I’ve even become a certified holistic coach from one of the top schools teaching nutrition theory, and now I’m sharing everything I learned to make the Portion Fix system better for you for less than a tenth of what I spent to make what I believe is the last nutrition plan you will ever need!

This is the Ultimate Portion Fix — a premium nutrition program available exclusively through TeamBeachbody.com.

Portion control is just the beginning.

It’s no mystery that if you want to lose weight, portion control is key. But with this expanded instruction, I’m going to make it more than a strategy to help you lose a few pounds.

I’m going to make it so compelling that you will achieve a whole new way of eating and thinking about food.

I’ve included in the Ultimate Portion Fix Program the strategies that helped me win trophies in competition, heal my own health issues, end sugar addiction for thousands of my clients, and serve hundreds of thousands of customers in losing weight and achieving their healthiest selves.

I know these are the answers you’ve been looking for!

How did this even start?

Overeating healthy foods is still overeating. That was the “a-ha moment” I had when I watched one of my clients eat a salad for lunch that could have fed a family.

Healthy food, but the wrong portion size. The portion-control system was born!

But I’ve also seen many people are also UNDER-eating.

I’ll show you how to use the containers to perfectly portion every single meal, every time so that instead of playing a guessing game with portion size, you’re getting well-fed and well-fueled. (And enjoying food more because of it!)

In addition to portion control, I’m also going to show you how to achieve a healthy macronutrient balance of roughly 40 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent protein, and 30 percent fat BECAUSE THIS IS THE FUEL YOUR BODY NEEDS!

The Ultimate Portion Fix is about giving your body exactly what it needs to operate at its best! No starving. No random points that disregard food source. No fasting. No trendy fad. This is how you enjoy food, and get the most out of it because it feeds your body what it needs in the right ratio!

And finally, the biggie: My program is going to help you stop poisoning yourself with so much heavily processed food.

I’ll admit, this is a tough one because much of the food industry thrives by processing food to make it taste better — to the point it becomes addictive! But you don’t have to be a victim of the processed-food trap anymore!

I’ll show you how to make healthy, delicious meals with whole-food ingredients.

 OK, maybe you’re still wondering, why should I follow the Ultimate Portion Fix?

You’ve looked into every diet fad, seen social media influencers proclaiming they’ve made the big discovery, and you may have even tried them all — and I’m willing to bet you’re still frustrated nothing’s working for the long term. That stops now.

The Ultimate Portion Fix program will show you how to make losing weight simpler and — best of all — sustainable.

The tools I’m going to share in the new program will help you:

  • Break your sugar addiction: I’ll teach you WHY you’re addicted to sugar (because knowledge is power) and how you can break the addiction. I’m even arming you with grocery lists, meal plans, and easy-to-make recipes that emphasize whole-food ingredients, so you can finally cut down on processed foods without cutting out the joy of eating. I’ll even coach you through discarding the hidden sugars that are so destructive to reaching your goals!
  • Get the whole family healthy: Those days of prepping one meal for the kids and one for the adults are over. With Ultimate Portion Fix, I’ll cover everything from what and how much your kids should be eating, to getting them to eat enough fruits and veggies, and even how to end the “I’m only eating chicken nuggets for dinner” battle once and for all.
  • Feed yourself for performance: I’ll show you how you can customize your eating plan to your goal, whether it’s to lose those stubborn last 10 pounds or build muscle. My proven nutrition strategies are designed to maximize your nutrition so you can maximize your results — whether you’re paleo, vegan, or gluten-free.

With Ultimate Portion Fix, I’m giving you more than just the tools for quick, healthy weight loss.

I’m giving you all the knowledge I’ve learned and shared with customers to be in control of your eating habits for a healthy life!

What will you get?

I always adore anything about

One of the reasons breastfed infants may have better cognitive and visual development is because human milk contains long-chain, polyunsaturated fatty acids like the omega-3 DHA, while most available infant formulas do not, based on data I discuss in my video Should Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women Take DHA?. Infants given control formula without DHA didn’t do as well as those given DHA-fortified formula, and neither group did as well as the breastfed infants, who serve as the “gold standard.” This was enough to convince formula manufacturers to start adding DHA to their infant formula starting back in 2002.

The question then became how much to add? Easy, right? Just add the amount that is naturally found in breast milk. However, the DHA level in breast milk is extremely variable depending on what the mom is eating. There are a number of healthy populations who don’t eat any seafood, for example, and they have much lower levels in their milk yet seem fine. So this makes it difficult to determine the optimal amount to add to formula or, for that matter, what to recommend for pregnant and breastfeeding women. “Consensus guidelines recommend that women should aim to consume an average of 200 mg” of DHA daily during pregnancy. “Simply encouraging pregnant women to eat more fish is not so simple, because most fish are to some extent contaminated” with toxic pollutants, such as mercury. (See my video Mercury vs. Omega-3s for Brain Development for more on this.) For most fish, such as tuna, the brain damage caused by the mercury would exceed the benefit from the DHA.

Additionally, some pollutants, like PCBs, can get stuck in our bodies for decades, so it’s not enough to just eat clean during pregnancy.

What about purified fish oil? The methods supplement manufacturers use, like distillation, leave considerable amounts of PCBs and other pollutants in the products, so much so that when taken as directed, salmon, herring, and tuna oils would exceed the tolerable daily intake of toxicity.

Thankfully, one can get the benefits without the risks by getting DHA from algae instead, which is where the fish eventually get it from themselves. So, pregnant and breastfeeding moms can cut out the middle-fish and get DHA directly from the source—at the bottom of the food chain where we don’t have to worry about toxic pollutants.

Until recently, we thought everyone should take these long-chain omega-3s for their heart. However, the balance of evidence is now such that doctors “should not recommend fish oil intake or fish consumption solely for the primary or secondary prevention of CHD,” coronary heart disease. But what about for expectant and breastfeeding mothers? What does the latest science show? Putting all the studies together, it turns out adding DHA to formula does not appear to help infant cognition after all, similar to other recent compilations of evidence that show “no significant benefit.” In fact, at least four meta-analyses, or systematic reviews, have reached a similar conclusion. These were based mostly on the standard series of measurements known as the Bayley Scales for Infant Development. If other tests were used, would there be different results? So far, no. Giving women DHA supplements during pregnancy did not appear to help with other outcomes, like attention span or working memory, either.

Although there may be no significant benefit to infant cognition, what about other things like vision? Six trials have been done to date supplementing pregnant women. Four showed no effect, and the two trials that showed benefit had some problems. So, while we really don’t know at this point, if all the studies so far show either nothing or benefit, why not just take them to err on the side of caution?

There may not be any demonstrable “clear and consistent” benefits, but there are new studies on this coming out all the time. If it’s harmless, maybe women should just take it to be on the safe side? The problem is that it may not be harmless in large doses. In a study in which women were given a whopping 800mg of DHA a day during pregnancy, infant “girls exposed to higher-dose DHA in utero [in the womb] had lower language scores and were more likely to have delayed language development than girls from the control group.”

So, the “absence of clear positive effects and the possible presence of negative effects in the children raise the question whether DHA supplementation is justifiable…” But it was a really large dose, suggesting that there may be “an optimum DHA level below and above which DHA might be detrimental to the developing brain.”


So, maybe too much is detrimental, but what about too little? I discuss that in Should Vegan Women Supplement with DHA During Pregnancy.
