There’s so much going on at Beachbody these days, but one of the most exciting updates is the Beachbody Nutrition+ program. Why? Because it’s becoming a monthly membership, with access to both programs, and, it's going live and Interactive!
What is Beachbody's Nutrition+ Program?
Over the years, Beachbody has refined their nutrition philosophy and distilled it down to two different options. For the hardcore fitness types who want to lose weight and manage their nutrition down to the macro, there’s the Portion Fix program.
The Portion Fix program is volume-based. That means your meal plans are broken down into macros (proteins, fats and carbs) and everything is measured to ensure you’re getting the right number of calories. It’s best for rule followers who like to follow a very specific roadmap.
Here's a quick overview video of the Portion Fix Program
2B Mindset is a lifestyle nutrition program designed for people who want flexibility more than a rigid set of rules. No foods are off limits, although there is a specific approach to food choice prioritization that makes eating a little less overwhelming.
Here's a little intro to the 2B Mindset Membership program.....

So How is the Nutrition+ Plan different?
Neither of the nutrition programs are new to Beachbody, but the way they are being structured has changed dramatically.
Up until now, you could order either one of these nutrition programs separately (and you still can). This includes Beachbody’s signature superfood smoothies, all the materials you need to get started, and if you want, you can get access to Beachbody on Demand as well.
Obviously working out while following either one of these plans is going to get you results faster, but a lot of people chose not to do the workouts for a number of reasons.
Beachbody's Nutrition+ is Totally Different
Both of the programs I mentioned above are standalone products. That means you purchase it once and you’re done. You get all your materials mailed to you, and off you go.
With Beachbody’s Nutrition+ program, it’s a recurring monthly membership of $19.95 per month. With this membership, you get access to BOTH nutrition programs, along with new coaching materials, recipes, live workshops and more, posted every month. This is a membership that you can cancel at any time and you won’t get materials sent to you. That’s what keeps the cost low.
What does the Nutrition+ Program include?
Every month, you'll dive deep into a new topic area, led by the program creators (Ilana Mulstein and Autumn Calabrese. You'll also get:
- New monthly recipes
- Cooking demos
- Food tracking templates
- Meal plans
- A live, ongoing supportive online community to keep you accountable
- Office hours and a chance to win a 1-1 coaching session with Ilana (valued at $400 per hour).
More Good News
Last week, I mentioned that Beachbody is going to start doing live, interactive classes - workouts, cooking shows, meal planning tutorials and more. You simply look up the time of the class you want to attend, and log in at that time. You’ll get to interact with our super trainers and join hundreds of other viewers who tune in at the same time.
Pretty cool, eh?
This feature is going into BETA for testing in August 2021 exclusively for Nutrition+ members. That means, if you’re subscribed as a member, you’ll get access to all the live classes (including the workout classes) at no charge and before everyone else.
Personally, I am STOKED for this. I do love the recorded workout programs and nutrition videos, but there’s something about a live class that just elevates the experience even more.
Is the Nutrition+ Program Included for Existing Beachbody on Demand Customers?
If you purchased the The Portion Fix or 2B Mindset, you should have access to the existing materials for your respective programs. Most challenge packs that you purchase now have access to a free month trial of the Nutrition+ program. If you want to keep it, just continue with the membership, or cancel anytime.
Is the Nutrition+ Program Worth it?
I think so! When you consider the cost of most “diet programs”, this is not only more affordable, but it’s also based on eating whole nutritious foods. You’ll have guided instruction from experts in the area of nutrition and more than enough resources and support to keep you moving forward.
In my opinion, this is the best deal going for online nutrition support.
Does it work?
I always get this question from readers, so I thought I’d include some before and afters. Look, when it comes to losing weight - nutrition is 75% of your results. Working out is amazing for sculpting your body and a host of other mental and physical benefits, but without the right diet, you’re simply not going to see results like these.
How to Sign up for the Nutrition+ Program
As I mentioned before, you get the first month free when you purchase a challenge pack. This option gives you the best chance for success as fitness combined with a solid nutrition plan is always the fastest roadmap to results.
However, you can also sign up for just the Nutrition+ program right here.
