What is 80 Day Obsession?
80 Day Obsession is the upcoming workout program set for release in January 2018. Created by Autumn Calabrese, the supertrainer that brought you 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, The Master’s Hammer and Chisel and Country Heat. It’s definitely not a beginner program. Designed for intermediate to advanced levels who want a total-body workout that will provide awesome booty and core definition. What’s truly innovative about 80 Day Obsession is that it is filmed in REAL TIME and features 80 separate workouts. Because of the huge scope of the program, it will not be available on DVD. It is a Beachbody on Demand exclusive.
Along with the workouts, there will be a comprehensive nutrition program and resources available to stream and download. There will even be a mini behind-the-scenes reality show talking about what Autumn and the cast experienced that week – what they struggled with food-wise or workout-wise. You’ll watch the cast’s body types actually change throughout the 13 weeks of the program as well.
What is the 80 Day Obsession Nutrition Plan Like?
80 Day Obsession follows a TIMED NUTRITION format to optimize muscle performance and recovery with the portion fix container system. Timed Nutrition helps fuel your muscles exactly WHEN you need it with the right amount of macronutrients (fats, carbohydrates, and protein). The meal plan is based on a 600-calorie burn per workout.
You’ll get small, frequent meals. You never go longer than 3 hours without eating. You have a 6-hour workout block. The pre workout meal is one hour before you work out. You’ll take your Energize 15-20 minutes before your workout. Then, you’ll have your post-workout Recover within an hour of your workout. Your post-workout meal will be consumed within 2 hours of your workout, then again every 2 1/2 to 3 hours after that.
It will be helpful for you to prep meals to bring along with you on the go (make sure you have a small cooler!). You can only get the best results with this program if you actually follow the plan.
How does the 80 Day Obsession Nutrition Plan Differ from 21 Day Fix?
Like the 21 Day Fix, you will calculate your calculate your calorie bracket (A, B, C or D) based on your current weight, your weight loss goals. It uses the very same color-coded portion fix containers that the 21 Day Fix does. However, the 80 Day Obsession Meal Plan takes things a step further by telling you which macronutrients to eat when (Timed Nutrition)
Many of you will actually be consuming more food than you typically do. You will need to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs. Cutting calories too drastically can put you into deprivation mode, where you lack energy, and you experience cravings that are hard to control. Because the 80 Day Obsession Workout Plan is so challenging, you will need to make sure you have enough fuel to get you through it.
With 80 Day Obsession, you’ll also get a “Refeed Day” where you get to indulge in extra carbs to build up glycogen stores. This happens around week six, and every few weeks after that. During your “Refeed Day” you get to carb-up on foods like white rice, corn flakes, pasta, and white bread. This will boost your glycogen stores and give you fuel for the upcoming week.

When Will the 80 Day Obsession Program and Meal Plan be Released?
Prior to the release of 80 Day Obsession, A Little Obsessed will be released. A Little Obsessed consists of shorter, 30-minute workouts featuring moves from 80 Day Obsession. It was created to be a fully functional standalone program on its own – but will also be a great step-up to get you ready for 80 Day Obsession. It will be launched on December 20th. A portion of the 80 Day Timed Nutrition Program will be released along with it.
There is an important part of the 80 Day Obsession nutrition plan called “The Workout Block”. It’s your pre-workout nutrition and post-workout snacks and meals. They are super-important, perhaps the most important part of the plan. Your pre-workout nutrition will help fuel your workout, just as your post-workout nutrition will help your muscles recover. THIS PART will be released along with “A Little Obsessed”on December 20, 2017. During the workout block, you’ll have a pre-workout meal. You’ll drink your Energize 15-30 minutes before your workout, then you’ll be fueled up and ready to go. After your workout, you’ll have RECOVER and some fruit, for example. Then, about an hour after that you’ll have your post-workout meal. This is all designed to fuel your body for maximum energy and performance, as well as give your muscles what they need at the exact right time to build and repair them.
There is a LOT of information that will be released with the 80 Day Obsession Nutrition plan. In fact, each bracket will get its own section of information within the customer downloads with hyperlinks to more information. There is even a guide specifically for vegan participants.
What Supplements will I need on 80 Day Obsession?
To boost your workout performance, Autumn recommends using Beachbody Performance Energize 15-30 minutes before your workout. Because your muscles will be sore, it’s recommended that you use Beachbody Performance Recover after your workout as well as Beachbody Performance Recharge at night 30 minutes before you go to bed to speed muscle recovery. If you want to try them, they come in a Beachbody Performance Sampler pack
Equipment Needed for 80 Day Obsession
For 80 Day Obsession, you’ll need weights, resistance loops and sliders. Most of you have free weights already. If you did PiYo, you will have the sliders (available here: Sliders with Booties). The resistance loops will be available on TeamBeachbody.com in December 14th so you can get them before the program launches.
We will also be hosting a COUNTDOWN TO OBSESSION group for those who would like to prepare to be obsessed…
