Changing your mindset for weightloss

2B mindset, clean eating, keto, paleo, tosca reno, ilana muhlstein, binge eating, portion fix, autumn calabrese, vanessa mclaughlin, vanessadotfit, vanessadotfitness,,,

Finally, finally, finally.

A program that focuses on emotional eating.
A program that focuses first on the “Why” not the how.
A program that focuses on those triggers.
It’s like health and mindset collided in a HUGE beautiful way.

For me and my fellow recovering yo-yo dieters, and binge eaters there is a solution. No counting. No containers. No awkward weigh ins.

I have to admit something…

When I first heard about 2B Mindset, I was skeptical. Here’s why. I believe in exercise. I need my daily workouts, because I love the results. I didn’t know if I’d be able to embrace a new Beachbody program that solely focuses on nutrition — ZERO exercise required.

But then I heard what the creator of the program had to say. Her story.

Meet Ilana, Registered Dietitian & Creator of 2B Mindset

Ilana is the REAL DEAL. She understands the struggle of emotional eating, she knows what it takes to overcome it. To lose the weight. To build a new type of relationship with food. That’s because she went through it.

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 need to see her story.

Seriously, WATCH IT!

So, What is 2B Mindset All About?

2B Mindset is Beachbody’s first nutrition-based program. But it’s not a “diet.” It’s about changing your relationship with food and changing your mindset. If you check out Ilana’s Instagram, you’ll get a pretty good feel for what I mean!

You can still have BIG portions of food.

You’ll still be able to eat everything you love.

There’s nothing you “can’t” have.

And you’ll still lose weight!

It sounds too good to be true, but she started and researched this program at UCLA, and still runs it there!

In my experience, the only thing that has really worked for me, has been using the Portion Fix containers. They’ve taught me so much. But, I still have days when I want ALL THE FOODS!! Without portions!! Ilana describes herself as a volume eater....yep. That's me!! So, I'm excited for this program.

How do I know if it’s right for me?

  • If you want a healthy relationship with food. 
  • If you struggle with cravings.If you’re an emotional eater. If you want to lose weight. 
  • If you can’t exercise. 
  • If you’ve tried dieting and failed. 
  • If you’re working out and still not losing weight. 
If you can relate to ANY of the above (and, come on, we can ALL relate to the first one), then 2B Mindset is right for you.

Let’s get down to some great questions about the program…

What will I get with 2B Mindset?

Let’s talk about the intangibles. Sure, you'll get some getting starting booklets, progress tracker, water bottle, and a few other things when you sign up.

But let’s talk about the BENEFITS, the things that “diets” can’t provide.
  • Strategies for real situations (restaurants, parties, etc.) 
  • Advice to overcome common weight loss challenges 
  • You’ll learn nutrition basics from a REAL dietitian 
  • Discover plenty of new, delicious recipes 
  • You’ll get simple grocery shopping lists 
  • There will be time-saving tips for meal prepping 
  • Along with so much more!
Are there any 2B Mindset workouts?

Nope! There is absolutely no working out required.

That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t or can’t work out, it just means that working out is a bonus! If you DO want to work out while using 2B Mindset, talk to me and we can figure out the best fitness program for you.

How many days does 2B Mindset last?

It’s time to get things straight — there’s NO time-limit for this program.

Unlike 21 Day Fix or 80 Day Obsession, there’s no end date. That’s because it’s a lifestyle change, not a diet or a fitness program.

There may come a time when you feel like you don’t need the videos from Ilana for advice, or you can stop using the tracker sheet provided, but that mindset doesn’t end. It’s something that you will continue on with in your day-to-day life, not because you HAVE to — because you WANT to!

So how is it so different from dieting?

The main focus of the program IS NOT on the food itself, it’s on your mind. Most diets aren’t sustainable. They deprive you, they make you say “no” which makes you crave those foods even more!
  • You’ll never feel like you’re starving 
  • You won’t be counting calories 
  • There’s no such thing as “cheating” 
  • You’re encouraged to say YES to food 
Now we’re talking my language — yes to food!

What’s the difference between this and the Portion Fix containers?

Well, first, there are no containers.

I know. Ever since 21 Day Fix launched, the majority of our programs have been based around the Portion Fix containers. And they work great, but I’m sure most of us don’t want to live the rest of our lives with these containers laying around the kitchen! Right?!

21 Day Fix vs. 2B Mindset Meal Plan

  • 21DF: External controls (containers) 
  • 2BM: Internal controls (mindset) 
  • 21DF: Highly structured meal plan 
  • 2BM: Flexible eating 
  • 21DF: Portion-control eating rules 
  • 2BM: Plate-visualization 
  • 21DF: Calorie/macro based 
  • 2BM: Nutritional & behavioral guidelines

What results can I expect to see?

Easy Ground Beef Stir-Fry

Ground beef, dinner, stir fry, 21 Day Fix, Clean eating, whole 30, paleo, Autumn Calabrese, Tosca Reno,, vanessadotfitness, vanessa mclaughlin
Quick and easy. That's my motto during the week. Even when I plan and prep on Sundays, I still want fast weeknight meals. Kids activities, busy schedules, and a commitment to go to bed early, don't give me time to make complicated meals with lots of ingredients! I love this recipe not only because it's easy, but because my family thinks it's delicious!

2 tablespoons ghee (or butter)
1 pound ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 yellow or white onion, sliced (I cook this separately because my husband doesn't like onions)
2-3 celery stalks, sliced
2 carrots, peeled and sliced (or 10 baby carrots cut in half)
1 small head broccoli, chopped (I buy pre chopped broccoli florets)
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger (use fresh or we love The Ginger People Brand)
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce (use cononut aminos for Whole30 option)
juice of 1 lime
kosher salt, to taste
ground pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)

  1. Melt butter/ghee in large skillet or wok over medium heat. When hot, add garlic and onion. Cook for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add broccoli, carrots and celery. Stir.
  3. Add ground beef and a little salt. Brown the beef, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, until cooked through. About 10 minutes.
  4. Drain your stir fry to get any excess liquid from beef.
  5. Return stir fry to skillet over medium heat. Add your minced ginger, soy sauce (or coconut aminos), juice of lime and crushed red pepper. Stir to mix all ingredients together. Cook until most of your liquid has soaked up, about 5-10 minutes.
I love to serve mine over a bed of jasmine rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice!
