9 Week Control Freak Meal Plan

This is just as important as any other section in this review since nutrition if focused on is 80% or more of the battle to being healthy. That is why Autumn likes to keep it very simple and it is no different with 9 week control freak. So what they do mainly for this program is stick with what has worked for so many with her portion control system. Then there is the 2B mindset which if you have not read Ilana Muhlstein's book you are missing out.

Ultimate Portion Fix 

Basically Ultimate Portion Fix is an expansion of what Autumn Calabrese brought to the table with her program 21 Day Fix. It is not considered a diet it is just a way to get you eating healthy foods because of healthy habits. You can of course still indulge in some things like cookies and wine when you want to.

You follow 3 basic guidelines that include: portion control, macro-nutrient balance, and the elimination of process foods from your diet. There is color codes containers that you simply fill foods up in them to get your portions right. It comes with a lot of material to help you on your way like easy shopping lists, workbooks, step by step videos, etc.

I can tell you that you won’t go hungry on this diet because most people can’t even eat all the food. Portion control can be taken out of context if you are eating the right kinds of foods you get filled up easier.

Another option is of course to follow what works for you even if you just want to start by counting calories or doing intermittent fasting. There a lot of people that have done either one and had great results. It is hard if you are just starting out so just take baby steps. Your initial goal should be to just get healthier and finish the 9 Week Control Freak Workout Program. If you even cut back a couple hundred calories a day you will see results.

2B Mindset

2B Mindset nutritional plan is designed to give you 4 fundamental rules to follow to help you on your weight loss journey. You aren’t going to be counting calories or skipping this food and that food.

You are basically provided a list of foods that you go off of but no specific food is completely off limits since that is why most diets fail. You basically use a plate diagram to get your portions down within a couple weeks you most likely won’t need the diagram no more. This makes it easier to make this a lifestyle change instead of just a short term diet.

It teaches you good habits when it comes to eating, indulging, shopping and going out to restaurants while traveling. Whatever it may be that comes up in your day to day life this program has you covered. It is very flexible and simple overall. 21 Day fix is more of a short term fix so you may want to try that first to jump start your system since it uses containers and you really can’t mess it up. Then move to 2B to get your life long journey on track and stay there.

Is There A Modifier For 9 Week Control Freak?

There are always modifier with Autumns workout programs so I don't expect Control Freak to be any different. Even Country Heat had modifiers.


I think this will be a great program for those that like Autumn Calabrese and 21 Day fix. I think you will see a different side of Autumn you have never seen before. Now if you don't like Autumn then you probably still aren't going to like her in 9 Week Control Freak and that is okay.
