Considering how much I love Trainer Lindsey’s 6 Week Fit Body Challenge, it’s surprising (even to myself) that I don’t love the free 15 day challenge quite as much. There are some great qualities to it, essentially the same qualities that I love about the 6 week challenge. It keeps you full and you lose weight pretty quickly. You are eating a macro balanced diet with more protein and less carbs.Disclaimer: Please note that some of the links in this post are affiliate links and I will earn a commission if you purchase through those links.

The reason I don’t love the free 15 day challenge is simply that those particular meal plans include several foods that I’m not crazy about. If you hate egg whites and salad with chicken, balsamic vinegar, and oil, you probably won’t love the free 15 day challenge. Additionally, if you aren’t crazy about protein powder you may also not love the plan.
However, it is a completely free plan that’s pretty easy to follow. You will lose weight and you shouldn’t feel hungry on this diet.
After purchasing the full 6 Week Fit Body Challenge I just think it’s so much better than the free 15 day version, and honestly so worth the cost! It’s really a steal since it comes with two tubs of Ideal Fit protein powder, a shaker bottle, a tee-shirt, workouts, and a full meal plan.
The other thing about the 15 day challenge as compared to the full 6 week challenge is that you’ll need two tubs of protein powder for it anyways, so the difference in cost between buying the two tubs of protein powder and the full 6 week challenge bundle is very minimal (certainly less than the cost of just the tee-shirt, let alone the shaker bottle and the extra meal plans and workouts).
The meal plans on the 6 week challenge are much tastier. You have a lot more options to choose from as far as which meal plans you want to do depending on the foods you like and dislike. The full plan also comes with a substitution list so you can customize the meals if there’s something in there you don’t like.
- It’s free
- You will have a set meal plan to follow, which works really well for some people (myself included). It makes it easy!
- It includes workouts
- The meal plan is definitely healthy, it includes a lot of lean proteins, healthy carbs, veggies, and healthy fats
- You should not be hungry on this diet, with all of the protein you are eating it keeps most people nice and full
- In my experience the weight comes off pretty quickly with this plan
- You will need two tubs of protein powder for the plan. You don’t have to purchase the Ideal Lean protein power, you could just find one that has a similar protein/carb/calorie ratio, although it is actually very tasty and reasonably priced. It is my favorite protein powder and it’s usually on sale too so it’s a better deal than anything you’ll find at GNC
- If you don’t like a lot lean proteins (egg whites, chicken breast, protein powder, etc.) you may have a hard time enjoying this plan. Once again I would recommending the 6 week plan in this case as the meal plans offer a lot more variety and a full substitution list to sub out anything you don’t like.
- Unless you have a couple tubs of protein powder lying around and therefore don’t need to purchase any, you may as well buy the 6 Week Challenge Bundle which comes with two tubs and a bunch of other goodies and benefits.
- On both this plan, as well as the 6 week plan, there is a lot of cooking and food prep involved. However, you can cut down on this by making the recipes in larger batches and eating them throughout the week.
