  1. Hey there! I will be starting this challenge soon and will be documenting my experiences on my blog!!!! I am soooo excited to get back into shape. THANK YOU so much for your blog and videos, they are very inspirational! I linked your blog to the challenge so everyone can see how much fun your site is!!! http://hannahrose1221.wordpress.com/2012/12/27/lets-get-this-party-started/

  2. can you make an adjusted version for people who go to school? im a highschool student and i really want to try it but its too hard with my schedule

  3. Angel De La Torre says:

    I am 10 years old and am 5’3 and I am 135 pounds. Can I get any tips? I want to lose 3 inches off my stomach, and lose thigh fat. Also lose a half inch off my arms. How to do this?
    I also want to gain a lot of muscle no abs cause theres a bunch under my fat, but arm muscle and leg muscle.
    How do I get rid of ashy legs?

    • I had the same problem that you do im 14 I started to do these work outs on YouTube and she is really fun and help make it fun I have got a start of abs these really work do them you will see the result within the first two days:) good luck!!

  4. Hello cassey I am eating clean and going crazy with the 90 day workouts and I just don’t los weight What can do??? :(

    • Don’t worry about it! I had the same problem when I began doing these,volleyball and dance. I cried because I didn’t understand why it wasn’t working I was eating right and working out daily. But when j talked to my nutritionist she explained, muscle weighs more than fat. Don’t pay too much attention to the number because its going to be somewhat high if you’re working hard. Depending on your body type,weight and height it may take you longer to see results. Other people are going to see it faster than you will. Keep going, you got this!

      • Muscle doesn’t weigh more than fat. 1lb of fat = 1 lb of lean muscle. Muscle has less volume, it takes up less space.

  5. Cassey,
    I’m a freshmen in college, and right now I’m on Christmas break, but I will be going back to college quickly. I can easily follow the 90 day challenge, but not the meal plan. My college provides some healthy foods, but not a lot. What could I do, because I don’t want to starve and I cannot afford going and buying my own food.

    • Just eat less food. It’s preferable you eat healthy, but when it’s not available you will have to substitute quality for quantity if you want to lose weight

    • I’m in this same exact situation! The healthy foods my dining hall provides are only in the salad bar…everything else is like pizza, cake, and other super processed unhealthy food. I’m also a science major on the premed track so I don’t have the time to cook for myself. Any suggestions for the meal plan?

      • In the morning, have oatmeal and bananas with some egg whites

        At lunch, have a salad

        For dinner, have another salad

        They have all of these things at my dining hall, but having salad each day isn’t enough for me, so I usually buy eggs and tuna and slivered almonds at the grocery store, and sneak them into the dining hall with me, so I can put what I want on my salads.
        My brother is in premed, and he didn’t think he had time to cook either, but he gained the freshmen 15 (and some) by eating at the dining hall, so he makes his own food, and it really doesn’t take up that much time either! There is ALWAYS time to be healthy. I’m not using the dining hall for the second semester because it’s unhealthy, and it’s SO expensive compared to buying your own groceries. Ditch the dining hall!

  6. Hey Cassey,
    I just saw this challenge and i would love to do it. The problem is, I am a freshman in college and that freshman 15 myth is gaining on me. Since I live in a dorm it is difficult for me to do this challenge full force. What do you suggest?

  7. I do half an hours workout of your videos everyday, including the fat melting cardio, what makes you bootyful, inner thigh challenge, as long as you love me love handles & abs all night challenge. In the first few weeks I really noticed a difference, I felt skinnier. But now it’s been about 4-5 weeks and I feel fatter! It doesn’t seem to be working anymore? What can I do? :c

    • Your body is getting used to the workout, you need to change it up. Try following the workout calender Cassey posts every month. Xxx

  8. hey cassey,
    I’m from Egypt and not all the food on the 90 day challenge is here so i don’t know what to do and I really need to start the challenge with ur workouts…..I really luvv ur videos and need to start losing weight….so what should I do ?!

  9. hey, in the first week i noticed a big difference but it has gone four weeks and i’m the same, sometimes i think i’m even fatter! do anyone have some idea of what’s the problem? or is it just me?

  10. Hey Cassey! I have a quick question, i remember reading somewhere on your website that you can subscribe the the calender thing on google/gmail thing for the meal plan.. (not the workout plan) unless you use the same meal plan for the next 3 month challenge? Thanks for reading this!

  11. Hey Cassey,
    Is it possible to spread the workouts throughout the day?
    Or is it than less affactive?

  12. Hi Cassy I ‘m Noura you workout are OMG OMG amazing I really found a great difference now with my legs, thighs ,abs every thing but plz tell me how to have a flat stomach ;). Cassy. Rocks you are amazing thanx

  13. I can’t find the meal plans for the 90 day challenge

  14. I’m new to pilates and have been stagnant on my weight loss journey for a few weeks, but a friend showed me one of your videos on youtube and when I found the 90-day challenge, I figured it would be just the change I needed. It’s soooo much yummy food and I’ve already dropped a TON of water weight (it’s only been three days!!!!!) and I’m not hungry AT ALL. I can’t do a full hour workout yet, but I get my cardio and push myself as far as I can go… then stretch it just a little more. Thanks for kicking my butt, Cassey! ;-)

  15. Hey, just recently started the 90 day challenge and its been four days, it is difficult but amazing, also i was wondering instead of following the meal plan can we adjust it to suit your own preferences?

  16. Hey cassey can you send me the calendar thank u I love pilates

  17. So I have been following this meal plan now for 1 week straight, and i haven’t noticed any results yet…other than feeling super full all day long. How long are the rest of you on it before you start seeing changes in your body??

    • Try again in a month. One week is not a very long time, your body is still adjusting. Changes begin internally before they reflect externally. Keep up the diet, keep up the hour long workouts, but most of all keep up your head.

  18. Finally I got my December Calendar !! Thanks so much Cassey ! Love ya! You help me a lot ! :D

  19. Where is the Dec calendar? I signed up for the newsletter and checked my email even spam and the password isn’t in there.

  20. hey! i’m 15 years old and i’m a little fat, so i’ve been doing exercises to lose weight but all i’ve got now is muscle. and i want to know if with this diet i will gain muscle or lose weight, because i don’t want to have big toned legs :(
    please, i really need an answer!!

    • Hi ananymous! This meal plan will help you lose weight, not build more muscle. There are also several fat burning/weight loss routines you can add to your workout… you can just search “blogilates fat burning”
      I hope this helps!! :)

  21. Hi! I just started this meal plan today! I eat really well and workout 5-6x already and just needed some structure to help me hit my goal and stay focused during the holidays. One question I have…is it ok to swap the order of some of the meals? I usually workout after work and have my post-workout shake as my dinner…so i would be swapping meal 4 & 5 and then having meal 6 last about an hour before bed.

  22. Heya this may sound life a daft question, but I’m gonna ask it anyway simply because I want to try this!

    Does anyone know what a cup or 1/2 a cup is when converted into metric please? Or is there another way of converting cups for those that don’t have them/use the measurement?

    I’m British and we don’t use cups as a general rule!

    Cheers in advance <3

  23. hi! I have a nut allergy, does anyone have a good replacement or the ten almonds in several of the snack in the meal plan? I was thinking possibly raw, roasted, unsalted sunflower seeds or another type of seed?

  24. I really want to know if it’s ok to have a half subway sandwich for lunch. Without souce and cheese.
    Thank you for your help.
    Greetings from Hong Kong
    Alyssa

    • for “fast food” i’d say subway is probably the healthiest choice! just put lost of vegetables on your sandwich and it makes a fast, delicious and healthy lunch option

  25. hi Cassey, thank you so much for all your FREE recipes and workouts, I LOVE THEM. I would like to know, how can I make my upper body smaller, meaning my torso-breast, shoulder area? Please HELP!!!!!! and Thank you!!!

  26. fuck

  27. hello(: i just wanna ask, for us to get a flatter stomach and smaller thighs, how long do we have to do the workout before seeing the result?

  28. If you don’t have time to make the omelettes in the morning, can you have a protein shake for breakfast instead of later on? x x

    • You can have shake in the morning, it’s great and fast to do :) But, it’s really important that you eat protein shake after workout, too, because that’s what your body needs after your muscles have been damaged during training :)

  29. Hey,
    I am a college student and my time for actually sitting down( or standing up) and actually making breakfast is limited; are there any meal plans for those on the go?
    Thanks

    • I totally understand your busy schedule. As a recent grad with a full-time job and an even fuller schedule, finding the time to do “meal prep” can be difficult. However, if you can dedicate some time on the weekend or on a day you don’t have as much going on (I typically pick Sunday) to prep some meals it makes this plan a lot easier and cuts down on meal time prep. I make the mini egg omelets from Cassey’s recipe section that are made in a muffin pan or the protein pancakes for the whole week and just reheat them each morning. This can be done for pretty much all of the meals!

  30. could i make these for breakfast one day for the 90 challenge? or should i just stick with the breakfast given?

  31. This 90 day challenge is incredible !
    My girlfriend and I, do it since 2 months and already have amazing results … it’s so much good, that we are in the TOP100 finalist on the biggest Facebook Web Reality Health Show of the North America ! LOOK OUR TRANSFORMATION HERE :

    Thanks for your help and thanks to every body that love this challenge !

  32. You should do this again this year! The 24th is tomorrow :)

    I would love to partake in the challenge

  33. Hi Cassey!! :)
    College student here enjoying your workouts in the comfort of my apartment on campus:). I have been doing really well on following your workout plan on your October Calender, but sadly my meals have not been coinciding with my workouts. I have done better with the food i eat, but it is still difficult to follow one of your plans because I am a vegetarian; no meat, fish, or eggs. I also am on a college student budget. Do you have any ideas for me to keep on my healthy plan, and possibly lose my freshman 15 :p. Love your videos and spirit!! Your such an enthusiast!! :D
    -Cyndi:)

  34. Hey Cassey! about the 90 days meal plan, could I substitute the first meal (banana, eggs and oatmeal) for banana+yogurt+granola? thank you! x

  35. I think I’ll just be able to do the workouts and an “inspired” version of the meal plan. I’m in college and I have a meal plan, so I can’t afford to try and cook for myself since I don’t have these sorts of options. :)

  36. I really would like to do this challenge but im finding a lot of the foods really gross like egg whites, edamame, almonds, cottage cheese, greek yogurt and to eat the foods without butter, salt or ranch. I want to redo the meal plan but still keep it clean and healthy. And id like to be able to drink something besides just water, something with no sugar.

    • For drinking something without calories, I drink green tea all the time. From what I’ve read, most plain tea doesn’t have calories, and green tea helps your metabolism!
      And as for not liking some of the foods, maybe try sprinkling some herbs (thyme oregano, or rosemary) on the egg whites, adds a little oomf. For cottage cheese and greek yogurt, try adding some cinnamon, but NO sugar; it doesn’t get rid of a funky texture, but it doesn’t taste bland.
      Hope this helps!

    • Hey, there! For the greek yogurt situation, try adding a dash of vanilla powder and cinnamon. :) Besides water, herbal teas like green tea and chamomile tea is great!! Bake raw almonds, they’ll taste better. Oh, anyone knows how to keep motivated? I keep going off track and it gets so bad sometimes I don’t even want to leave the house because I feel disgusting and yet, all I want to seem to do is PIG out :’(

      • I totally understand how you feel! Its like you know you’re eating the food that’s bad, yet you do it anyway? The key is to remember your goal- remember why you’re doing this. Whether it be training for a comp, looking good for your boyf, or just to feel good about yourself- think how good you’re gonna feel when you reach that goal and how you’re gonna love your body. Put in the work, restrain yourself- even if its just that one item of food- it all adds up, and you will achieve the results you want (: Hope this helps x

  37. Hi Cassey ..PLease Help! I feel like crying :-( Am I the only one incapable of not only printing but viewing the Meal Plans? I love you Blog, I Love your YT Channel..by I feel clueless! How do I do this??? I want to follow along with the plan and challenges and everytime I try to load the meal plan it does not work. I am only seeing a small message from you in upper left on the chart…basically saying commit and let’s do this.

    tiffany…you say its a spreadsheet. if you click on the tabs it will show you the two meal plans to follow…but what tabs are you talking about nothing is labeled where to click. Someone PLEASE help! Thank you in advance!

    • Danielle van der Steen says:

      Hi Tee, I hope I can help you.. Click the “HERE” button to download the meal plan, it will open in a new window. It looks like an excel sheet. When opened, you see a welcome message from Cassey in yellow. This is the front sheet from the menu. There is no need to scroll down, but look all the way down, NO SCROLLING!, there are 4 tabs; welcome, m/w/f/su, t/th/sat and protein pancakes. Click on one of them and it will open the menu from the days you picked. Now you can print all the tabs and enjoy the meal plan :)

      • OMGeee you are so cute..to take the time to talk me through! Thank you so much Danielle! Again, I want to cry… but this time it’s with a smile on my face! I am SO not techie! Thank you again!

        Thank you Casey for every thing awesome here, including your too cute gym bag with a bow! :-)

        Tee

  38. Hey, what could I eat in place of eggs I really do not like them!

  39. Help! I wake up at 8 everyday and I end up eating meal 6 like at 9 or ten sometimes. Is that bad? Can we cut out dinner or do we have to eat ALL meals.? I find it weird to eat late,

    • I would do 8:00, 10:30, 1:00, 3:30, 6:00, 8:30.. You have to eat every 2/2.5 hours so that will work out just fine :)

      • Thank you so much! Also regarding the tilapia meals, can we cook it in extra virgin oil on a pan, or does it have to be steamed/baked?

        • I cook it in a pan with a little extra virgin olive oil.. Try to not stress about these little details, a little oil won’t hurt at all! It will make a complete difference for your body if you eat healthy food every 2-2.5 hours instead of junk :)

    • You can definitely cancel out dinner . Just don’t ever skip breakfast or you’ll be hungry at late hours and will pig out.

  40. For some reason I can’t get the calendar to come up so I can print it and I’ve used the password. Please help!

  41. For some reason the meal plan isn’t showing up in Excel. Any way I can access the meal plan another way? I’d love to give it a try!

  42. I feel like this is way to repetitive. I’m on day 3 and am already seriously bored of the food options. Any ideas to change it up a bit so I stick with it?

    Also, I work full-time (8 am-5 pm) and find Meal 1 to be very difficult to bring to work with me (no time to eat before I get to work due to not being hungry and commute time). Does anyone have any suggestions that are easier for on-the-go breakfasts with the same calorie amount and meal plan guidelines in mind?

    • Hi Tracy! From my experience with other diets, you can sub out many of these things for items of similar nutritional value. For example, you can sub out Tilapia with another fish that you prefer, or chicken can be subbed with another lean poultry. Cassey does note this for some of the items. There are many sites out there that you can check nutritional information for food, to ensure that you are making a practical and nutritionally accurate swap. Hope that helps!

      • Hey, I have a question too! I have to go to school and somehow, taking fish to school doesn’t seem like a brilliant idea. What do I do! :’(

    • Mrs Dash has great seasoning that don’t increase the amount of your intake. I love it when my food is bland or for a little variety!

  43. Please be careful when doing this challenge. The diet plan has an excessive amount of protein (50 some odd % of calories) to be eaten on a daily basis. Protein should be about 15%-20% of your calories with a MAXIMUM of 30-35% of calories otherwise you risk damaging your kidneys with the protein overload. This includes strength athletes. Please consult with a doctor/registered dietitian before you do this because this is NOT a safe diet.

  44. I don’t get the mealplan.. can anyone please help? So for example on monday wednesday,thursday and sunday it has 6 meals. are all them meals in a day? or for all days? o.o

    • Yes, you eat 6meals a day (every 2 hours), and the 4 days you eat the same meal. But the other 3 days you eat the other meal.

  45. The meal calendar does not show , can anybody help ? :(

  46. Is there anything I can substitute for the cottage cheese mixture? I really don’t like it :-/

    • You could probably have one serving of non-fat Greek Yogurt! Key Lime and Black Cherry Oikos are my all time favorite, but yogurt has live cultures to help with your digestion:)

  47. I’m so excited to do this!! I started today and am actually finding out eating every 2-3 hours isn’t as hard as I thought.

    The only question I have is, for anyone who’s done this, how much weight and/or inches did you lose the first month?

  48. I have a few questions; I have muscular kind of bulky legs and a small, skinny top half, and I wanted to slim down my legs to even out my whole body. Which workout videos would you suggest for slimming?

    • Hey, Cassey always says that you can’t spot reduce :) So I think you should up your cardio, and for toning, look up Cassey’s specialised leg workouts on Youtube! Hope this helps :)

  49. Just saying… I absolutely love your blog! and this calendar is so amazing! I hope you are always going to do them!

  50. When does the new challeneg start?
