Let’s Talk 2B Mindset: No Diet, Zero Exercise Weight Loss

April 18, 2018

Already got the program details?
Read my honest review of 2B Mindset here.

I have to admit something…
When I first heard about 2B Mindset, I was skeptical.

Here’s why. After just completing 80 Day Obsession, I didn’t know if I’d be able to embrace a new Beachbody program that solely focuses on nutrition — ZERO exercise required. I love my daily workouts, I need them!

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

2B Mindset Ilana Weight Loss

Meet Ilana, 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!

Everything I know about nutrition, and the only thing that has really worked for me, has been using the Portion Fix containers. They’ve taught me so much. But I’m excited to step outside of my comfort zone with 2B Mindset and utilize all the expertise that Ilana has put into this!

How do I know if it’s right for me?

Honestly, without even trying this program, I can say that 2B Mindset is for EVERYONE.

  • 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.

Let’s Talk

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?

    Hey, great blog Kristina!

    I’m wondering do you know any other good dietsI can buy online to help lose my baby weight?

    I was thinking of the 2B mindset but have found some bad reviews like this one http://pushpedalcrank.com/2b-mindset-review/
    I’ve been searching google for some good advice. I don’t want to waste money on a diet I won’t be able to stick with, I’ve made that mistake too many times.

    Kind regards

      Thanks, Emma! There’s always going to be positive and negative reviews on every nutrition plan out there. 2B Mindset has worked for many of my customers, and it’s definitely something that’s easy to stick with in the long-term! But a huge aspect of it has been our accountability and support group — having others to help and motivate you can go a long way! And if you’re worried about wasting money, 2B Mindset is backed by Beachbody’s 30-Day Money Back Guarantee (which is 100% legit and easy to do, btw). If you aren’t working with another Beachbody Coach already, feel free to send me an email, kristina@kristinadelgado.com, and I can help you with any of your concerns and chat about other meal plans as well!
