REGULAR SHIFT MEAL vs “1 A DAY”

1-A-Day items are allowed no more than once per day while on plan. These items are listed in orange on your preplanned menu, located in their own space in our retail area, and have a “1-A-Day” orange circle on the box. These items are higher in carbohydrates and therefore limited to once per day. You are not required to consume one every day, but you must consume all three of your Shift meals daily. They can all be regular Shift meals if you like, but try mixing in 1-A-Days occasionally for more variety.

Remember to use your journal daily! We will be able to catch an accidental double 1-A-Day meal in case you have forgotten which items are which! This also helps your coach spot items like taco seasonings, gums, or medications like liquid Nyquil or cough drops that can slow weight loss.

Tip: Set up your cupboard or pantry area at home for your ShiftSetGo items. Dollar store bins are great for organizing your items! Set the 1-A-Day items in a specific area so you don’t mix them up. Keep your shakers, water bottles and supplements here also so all of your tools are together!
