Last week, I was greeted with a new Tone It Up diet plan in my inbox from Katrina and Karena. The entire plan has been revamped and includes 50 new recipes and an extensive goal achieving program. I wrote a review and fell in love with the plan a few years ago when I used the 7 day slim down to lose a few pounds for one of my very first photo shoots in 2010. Full disclosure, you guys know that Katrina and I have been friends since 2006 but I only support the plan because it rocks and is something I personally use myself.
What I love about the new plan is that it is so user friendly to read, follow and implement. The pictures are absolutely amazing. The girls say they reflect a “sun kissed” feel and they really do. All the images seem to have that so-cal photo filter that makes you wanna move to Manhattan Beach to be their neighbor. It reads like a diet book. It’s quick to soak in so you can get started right away. There is a ton of variety and options for your favorite smoothies and pancakes.
On top of the plan, they include some great nutrition education so that you can use to make decisions on your own in the real world. They break down what nutrients their favorite foods are high in so if you have a deficiency you can adjust.
Since I have reviewed the plan before I’ll keep this review to what is new and good. The recipe section features a slew of new raw, vegan, gluten free and soy free options. With my Integrative Nutrition courses, I’ve modified my diet to eat more vegetarian and non GMO meals so this was a welcome addition to my growing needs.
They also expanded the 7 day slim down a bit, a program that is incredible if you do it before an event. Celebs do this for their big red carpet nights, why shouldn’t you for your wedding?
I also love the new section dedicated to achieving goals. I am planned to start my own inspiration board this week and will share it with you guys when I’m done.
My favorite part is that the recipes include a new graphic that helps you decide what meals are good for what meal. The TIU plan is based on 5 small meals. Many meals are perfect for more than one meal, but the guide is really helpful. They also divide the recipes into 3 categories so that people looking to lose, tone or maintain can get a little extra guidance in knowing which recipes are best for them. If you are thinking of buying the plan, check out their amazing testimonials. They are incredibly inspirational. Even I was moved to get started on a new health kick after reading the whole thing!
