Compare Pros and Cons
80 Day Obsession Pros
Cassandra Maxwell says she loves the programs but hopes they will be available as a DVD system as well.
80 Day Obsession Cons
Myra Gonzalez says- “So far, the second week of the workouts is the same as the first. It is definitely not the unique and different workouts as being marketed”.
Shawna Bell says- “I am really interested in this program. However my streaming capability does not allow me to participate. I’m really shocked that there is no DVD option”.
21 Day Fix Pros
Anne Mathis says- “I started this program (the extreme version) but never finished. I did it for about a week & a half. I lost 10 lbs. in that time frame & I was only 150 lbs. at the time. I wanted to lose 20 lbs. so had I kept going & by what I lost the first half of the program I would have lost all 20 lbs. so I guess it must have to do with body types & metabolisms too or the work out for the extreme version burns way more.”
Sherry Powell writes- “Yep, it works, exercise and eating right always does the trick but the Fix makes it simple for people to follow understand that is what makes this program successful for so many people.. 5 lbs. lost for me is a lot since I hover around my ideal weight and really did not have much to lose”.
21 Day Fix Cons
Sonia Frank writes that it bothers her that you only do the upper once a week and the lower once a week. She has seen workout plans where upper is two times a week (like Mon and Thurs) and lower is two times a week ( like Tues and Fri).
Pamela Porter says that the Calabrise Salad is listed as one purple container and a spoon but it looks like the cheese isn’t being counted.
Whether or not you will really shed considerable amount of weight with the 21 Day Fix in just three weeks will depend on many factors. Following the included 3 Day Quick Fix will help you lose a lot of weight to lose a lot of weight.

It should also be noted they had more than 30 lbs. to lose.
