Honestly, I was not on board with this program when it first came out. I was skeptical that it would be effective, and honestly, it felt too basic.
Turns out, I was wrong.
After working out for years on an almost daily basis, I was pretty convinced that it was critical to losing weight. When I heard that this program didn’t require movement at all, I was like – “Seriously? What kind of message does that send to our audience?”
But after meeting the creator of the program (a Registered Dietitian who has lost 100lbs), I got it. It’s not that exercise isn’t important – it’s that it’s secondary to nutrition. If you don’t have your diet in check, no amount of reps, sets, and sweats are going to give you results.
Meet Ilana, Program Creator + Registered Dietician
I love that Ilana brings not only credentials to this program, but also her own personal story of struggle. She knows first hand how it feels to take a long journey towards understands the struggle of emotional eating. She also knows what it takes to overcome it. To lose the weight, and build a new type of relationship with food. She struggled with emotional eating since she was a child. And she lost 100 lbs (and kept it off) by completely transforming her mindset! You’ve got to hear her story…
So, What is 2B Mindset Nutrition Coaching All About?
2B Mindset is Beachbody’s first nutrition-based program. It’s not a diet – because diets are for suckers. It’s about changing your relationship with food and changing your mindset. If you’ve been here for a while, you know how critical I believe that to be!
Here’s the thing – you can still…
- Eat lots of food…
- Eat whatever you want…
- Eat at restaurants…
- Eat at celebratory events…
- And still, lose the weight.
It’s a matter of changing your mindset, prioritizing food differently and knowing your body and your triggers.
How do I know if 2B Mindset Nutrition Coaching is right for me?
- If you eat emotionally and struggle to control food intake
- If you always seem to be craving sugar or processed carbs
- If you have a bad relationship with food or don’t trust yourself
- If you have a desire to lose weight without dedicating time for exercise (although I still think you should)
- If you’ve tried and failed at dieting, restriction, following special protocols etc.
- If you’ve tried everything and still can’t lose weight… then I think this program will transform your body and the way you eat for good.
What does 2B Mindset come with?
You’ll get a few things mailed to you – a workbook, journal to track food and a water bottle (my husband swiped mine the minute I got it). More importantly, you’ll get everything you need to complete the program, track your progress and change your behavior and mindset on an interactive app for your phone or tablet. This thing is the bomb!
You also get personal coaching from me – to ensure you commit, show up every day and succeed!
More importantly, here’s the non-tangible benefits that will change the way you eat for good.
- Strategies for real situations (restaurants, parties, etc.)
- Advice to overcome common weight loss challenges
- Nutrition basics and how to prioritize the right foods
- Tons of recipes
- Simple grocery shopping lists
- Time-saving tips for meal prepping
- Group support and coaching
Does 2B Mindset Nutrition Coaching Require Workouts?
No, it doesn’t – but I still think you should (if you can). If you’re suffering from an injury or have a physical reason why you can’t work out, then this program is going to be even more important for you, but I do believe that movement is critical. Even if it’s just walking.
How long is 2B Mindset?
Unlike many of the programs I work with, there’s no time limit on 2B Mindset. It’s a learn-as-you-go because it’s all on-demand videos that you’ll have access to for life! That said, I work with you for the first 3.5 weeks to ensure you get started on the right foot and stick with it!
How is 2B Mindset Nutrition Coaching different from other diets?
As I’ve said before, diets are for suckers. If you’re doing something just for a few weeks, hoping to lose weight and plan to go right back to your old behaviors once you hit your goal weight, you’re wasting your time. This program teaches you how to eat for life. You won’t do anything on day 1 that you can’t maintain on year 10. Does that make sense?
- There’s never a need to starve or restrict
- You won’t count calories (although you will track food)
- There are no cheats because no food is off limits
- You’ll find a new relationship to food that won’t make you feel bad about yourself or your choices.
- You’ll finally have food freedom
It’s not at all like the portion fix container program.
Some people love the clear guidelines of the portion fix containers. It’s great if you have total control over your day, your time and your food. But the reality is that we’re always on the move and life gets in the way. This program is completely different because there are no containers, no color coding, and no restrictions. It’s all about flexible eating and choosing food and portions that are right for you, and that drive results!
Fix Portion vs. 2B Mindset Meal Plan
- No containers, just mindset training, and informed decision-making
- No restrictive meal plans, just flexible eating
- No measuring or portioning – just eye-balling and plate-visualization
Sounds Awesome, But How Much?
