My Fit Father Project FF30X Honest Review From A 40+ Busy Father Of 2

Here's the facts on the Fit Father Project FF30X and my journey to lose weight, gain energy to keep up with my kids, and get rid of my Dad Bod.

Take it from someone who did the whole 30 days with the results below to prove it, just scroll down.

First off, I'm a busy father of 2 in my 40's.

I work full time and also have my family life so I needed something that could fit into my schedule.

I didn't want to do any crazy diets or restrictive diets that we're fads and would do damage to my body.

I had never done anything like this before so I was trying to find a weight loss routine for beginners.

I researched on the internet and found the Fit Father Project FF30X developed by Dr. Anthony Balduzzi which was designed specifically for busy dads over 40.

He'd helped over 50,000 busy dads in the last 10 years lose weight and get rid of their Dad Bods.

He created a fitness program and nutrition plan that catered to men over 40.

Muscle building exercises for men over 40 are different than those for men in their 20's.

His fat burning cardio workouts consists of 5 exercises that target the body with pin point accuracy to get the best results for guys over 40.

There's no wasting time on time consuming workouts but exercises that get the best results to get rid of fat, boost your metabolism, and build lean muscle.

You can do a gym workout but I did mine in my garage with 2 dumbbells.

The nutrition plan consists of healthy meals and was definitely not a rabbit food diet. 

The reason it's effective and an excellent diet plan is because it's realistic and sustainable. 

Dr. Anthony knows the diet plan needs to be simple to follow and effective at the same time. 

He created the Fit Father "No Think" Meal Plan that covers everything step by step. 

It includes the best foods to eat, grocery lists, quick-cook meal recipes, and a schedule for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 

It also has healthy diet choices for eating out and vegetarian options if needed.


Dr. Anthony knows that nutrition is responsible for 80% of your weight loss results. 

He understands that you can't out exercise a bad diet. 

In fact you can lose weight with just the diet plan alone but you won't build up your muscle mass without the muscle building exercises.

In addition to the fitness and nutrition programs, there's also the Fit Father Accountability System. 

From day #1 I received accountability emails from the Fit Father Coaches to keep me on track and motivated to make sure I got results on my fitness journey. 

They're also there for any questions or roadblocks you might encounter.

There's also a helpful facebook group with like minded individuals. 

The facebook group is full of busy dads who are also doing the Fit Father Project. 

It's a great resource to discuss the weight lifting routine, meal plan,  your goals and accomplishments, and any other questions you might have.

This was the first time I've ever been on a diet.

I don't mean to be so positive about the Fit Father Project FF30X workout and meal plan, but it worked.

My Fit Father Project FF30X Review Of The Meal Plan

Every breakfast I had a shake.

I started with shake #1 which was good.

But after changing to shake #2, I was in heaven.

Shake #2 was great.

It was a fat burner shake but I loved the taste.

For lunch, I would do one of the two types of Manwiches.

They were pretty good but I got a little bored with the same thing for lunch, plus I'm lazy making my food the night before.

That's why I would do the Meals On The Go choices.

It was easy and it gave me different lunches to try.

I really did get On The Go Meals from Subway, Chipotle, McDonalds, and Taco Bell.

My day to day Fit Father Project FF30X Review inputs are 100% accurate.

My afternoon snack only changed a little.

I started with cashews and turkey jerky.

I ended with turkey jerky and organic Fuji apples.

I bought and tried the Quest double chocolate bar one day for my snack.

It's recommended in the meal plan.

It was horrible.

I ate 1 1/2 bars and that was it.

I read reviews on Amazon.

I think they changed their recipe and use sucralose  because they are just awful.

I recommend trying a sample of different flavors first, maybe only the double chocolate tasted bad.

I only tried the double chocolate flavor.

My water drinking.

I drank water throughout the day.

I mixed it with a teaspoon of organic apple cider vinegar and some squeezed lemon juice.

You don't have to do organic apple cider vinegar and lemon juice but that's how I like it.

I put it in the refrigerator the night before.

The water wasn't a big deal to me.

I drank it before starting the Fit Father Project FF30X.

The water kept me flushed and I totally got off Starbuck's coffee every morning.

My dinners were pretty similar each night.

I ate mainly chicken, salmon, and tuna.

I ate brown rice.

I also would eat the frozen vegetables from Trader Joe's.

I'm sure fresh vegetables would be better, but I'm lazy and the frozen ones are easy to prepare.

I ate the organic mixed medley, the green medley, and the asparagus.

The asparagus was my favorite.

I kept it easy during the week and would eat something different on the weekends.

I should mention the meal plan has lots of easy to make recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I didn't make any of them besides the shakes and the Manwiches.

I kind of wish I had because the recipes looked delicious.

I bought all of my food at Trader Joe's, Target, and Costco.


My Fit Father Project FF30X Review Of The Workouts

The workouts were intense but I really enjoyed them.

The first Apex workout was the hardest, but it got easier as I went.

Weeks 2, 3, and 4 were awesome.

I'd get pumped doing the Apex workouts and was full of energy after.

The free days were nice and the High Impact workouts worked great also.

My Fit Father Project FF30X Review Final Thoughts

All I can say is that they all worked together.

The diet plus the workouts all worked to help me lose weight.

I have more energy.

I'm lighter and not carrying around a spare tire.

I can tell the difference when I jog and play basketball.

I haven't felt bloated like a beached whale all month.

It feels good.

I lost weight around my waist, stomach, and neck.

I got rid of my man boobs and my chest is more defined.

I can actually flex my stomach muscles now too.

Plus my triceps got bigger.

I've even stopped snoring.

My wife used to wake me up to stop snoring in the middle of the night but not anymore.

Dr. Anthony knew what he was doing when he set up the Fit Father Project FF30X because it works.

I lost 20 pounds and I'm keeping it off.

I now know how to eat sensibly and how to exercise to stay healthy.

It pretty much taught me a healthy lifestyle.

I can keep up with my kids and stay active.

There are also a lot of other features in the Fit Father Project FF30X that I didn't cover.

I did mention the helpful emails once you start on the program, plus the easy workout plan and meal plan that you can load onto your smartphone, and the helpful videos for eating and working out, but that's not all.

There's quite a bit more but I don't think it's fair to Dr. Anthony to divulge everything.

All I can say is that Dr. Anthony did a great job putting together the Fit Father Project FF30X and I'm happy as I can be that I did it.

If you're sick of being fat or chunky, or tired of feeling bloated and tired, the Fit Father Project FF30X can help change that.

If you're tired of feeling old then the Fit Father Project FF30X can help you feel young again.

Because I sure do.

Fit Father Project FF30X Review

    Here is what bothers me. I am 62, been working out my entire life. I am looking to loose weight. In that effort I am trying to get independent reviews of different programs yet all of FFP reviews have links to purchase. Is this a review or is it an infomercial?

    • FastThor2019 on February 11, 2021 at 10:40 am

      Hi Jimmy,

      I set up my site as a full on review. I cover every day for 31 days. Have a look at the different posts for each day. Keep scrolling down to “My Fit Father Program FF30X Daily Entries And Results” to find the posts. I cover what I ate, my workouts, and how I felt.

      I promote the Fit Father Project FF30X because I believe in it. I did it and it works. I lost 20 pounds in 31 days and I continued to lose weight after. I learned how to eat to keep the weight off. The meal plan is realistic and sustainable. The workout plan is definitely a workout but you feel great and get results.

  3. TH on February 22, 2021 at 7:38 pm

    I’m 43, 260# and a father of 3. I eat out breakfast and lunch which are usually terrible choices, however eat a sensible dinner. I sometimes eat when I’m not even hungry. I don’t exercise and drink too much after a rough 2020. I need a change as I want to be there for my kids and need out of this rut. I’ve tried Leto and others, but seem to revert back to old habits and gain what I lost. I need to break that cycle. Is this the right program for me, if so how and why?

    • FastThor2019 on February 26, 2021 at 12:27 pm

      Yes, I think this is the right program for you.

      And it will work for you if you’re willing to make the change and stick to it.

      Eating is really the hardest part. You’re going to need to eat less than what you’re eating now.

      That’s why I prefer the shake #2 for breakfast to start my day. It gets me going, I like it, and it’s not full of calories.

      For lunch I do Subway, Taco Bell, and Chipotle. I know it sounds weird but they do have some healthy, low calorie options. It’s all in the meal plan with recipes also.

      You’re also going to be drinking water throughout the day.

      The meal plan also has tasty dinner options.

      Check out my day by day posts on this website for my meals, scroll down to the bottom of the page for the posts.

      It’s really a realistic way to eat throughout the day without the unnecessary calories without feeling starved.

      The Fit Father Project FF30X was designed for busy Dads to fit into their lifestyle.

      The workout plan is intense at first, but by the 3rd and 4th week it feels great. Just start slow and work your way up.

      There’s also support at The Fit Father Project to help you along the way and a Facebook group where you can talk to other guys doing the FF30X to ask questions, share results and keep motivated.

    But you are the seller, we won’t reviews from a consumer.

    • FastThor2019 on April 9, 2021 at 2:08 pm

      Hi Tyrone,

      My name is Steve. I am the consumer. This is my website about me and contains all of my day by day reviews of the meal and workout plan.

      The Fit Father Project FF30X works. I lost 20 pounds and have kept it off because of what I learned about eating and exercising through the Fit Father Project FF30X.

      The meal plan is realistic and sustainable. The workout plan takes work but you get results. There’s also email customer support and a facebook group with other Dads who are going through the same thing you are for moral support.

      I now play sports with my kids and just feel better. I don’t miss the days when I was bloated and tired.
