2B Mindset or Ultimate Portion Plan?


Are you confused about the 2B Mindset or Ultimate Portion Fix programs?  I can help you out as I am a Master Coach in BOTH!

They both encourage healthy eating and weight loss, but they’re quite different from each other. I love both of them for different reasons. Read on for more information about figuring out 2B Mindset or Ultimate Portion Fix – which one is best for you?


Are you ready to learn about proper eating and lose weight at the same time? If so, you’re ready for the 2B Mindset program!

Ilana Muhlstein designed the program. She’s well equipped since she’s a Registered Dietician Nutritionist (RDN). But, that’s not all—she’s the leader of the Bruin Health Improvement Program at UCLA. And she works on the Executive Leadership Team for the American Heart Association.

The 2B Mindset Program is all about nutrition and does not include an exercise program (exercise is extra credit if you want to add it in. You’ll use your plate to eyeball portions and vegetables will become y0ur best friend.

The 2B Mindset focuses on four main points:

  • Water
  • Veggies
  • Food tracking
  • Daily weight check

Water First: Never let food pass your lips without drinking water first. A sip of water doesn’t count—you’ll drink 16-ounce glasses of water throughout the day. This ensures you’re hungry before you eat. People often think they’re hungry, but in reality they’re thirsty. Most people don’t drink enough water on a daily basis. This program ensures hydration, fills you up, and flushes toxins from the body.

Veggies Next: Veggies should be the dominant food item for every meal. The program includes lots of delicious recipes. If you’re not a vegetable fan, this program will teach you how to be!

Food tracking: Write down everything you eat in a day. This helps you with the last step…

Daily weight check: Every morning, the first thing you’ll do is weigh yourself. Most people don’t like this part, but it’s important to program success.

If you’ve lost weight, look at yesterday’s food tracking and see what worked. If you’ve gained, DON’T STRESS ABOUT IT —but, DO look back and see what might have caused the problem.

Did you indulge in dessert? Did you fail to cut yourself off after the first glass of wine? Remember, what seems like a small thing, like an extra glass of wine, translates into a lot of extra calories if consumed on a regular basis.

Tracking your daily intake in conjunction with daily weigh-ins is a powerful combination. A KEY player is NOT overthinking and simply following the plan!  You also get the bonus of ME – I would love to connect with you regularly to go over your Daily Tracker to see how you are doing and help you make changes if needed.

You should exercise regularly for your health regardless of what program you’re on. The 2B Mindset program is ideal for people who already have an exercise regime and are just looking for a nutrition plan. It is also ideal for people who are just getting started on their health journey and may not be ready for regular exercise yet. Once you lose some weight, gain more energy and feel stronger… you may be excited about adding some fitness in!

The Ultimate Portion Fix is the EXPANSION of one of the most successful weight loss programs Beachbody has produced, 21 Day Fix. Ultimate Portion Fix is a 30-day video based program from creator Autumn Calabrese that will teach you how to use color-coded, portion-control containers to take the guesswork out of eating delicious, perfectly sized meals, every time. Ultimate Portion Fix isn’t a diet— you can still eat the foods you love, including snacks and desserts. It includes over 300 recipes, comprehensive food lists, and ways the whole family can get involved in making healthier decisions.


Do you dread working out? Do you spend long periods of time on the cardio machines at the gym, but feel like you’re getting nowhere?

The 21 Day Fix workouts are easy and short, lasting only 30 minutes a day. Two workout days each week are active recovery days offering less difficult exercises.

Best of all, they are available with the affordable Beachbody on Demand membership, enabling you to live stream them from any mobile device, computer or Smart TV as long as you have internet!


This is where the 21 Day Fix program nails it. Eating is the toughest part of any diet for most people.

The 21 Day Fix includes a set of portion control food containers that are color-coded and come in different sizes. The colors represent different food groups and the sizes represent the portions of each food you’re allowed to eat in each serving.

Based on your calorie range, you’re allotted a certain number of each container every day and you’ll measure out your food using the containers. After you’ve eaten everything in the containers, you’re done for the day!

You’ll use a food list to choose the foods that work best for YOU. You’re allowed caffeine, sugar, and alcohol in limited amounts.

There are a few general considerations:

2B Mindset takes a less prescriptive approach. With simple, effective nutrition strategies, knowledge of behavior patterns, plate-visualization methods, and acquired self-awareness tools (“internal control”), the 2B Mindset teaches you how to change your mindset toward food so you can achieve your goal weight.

Ultimate Portion Fix focuses on providing specific portion-control containers to measure out food (“external control”) backed up by an entire ecosystem of videos, tools, and written self-reflection exercises. It teaches you WHAT and HOW MUCH to eat to achieve a healthy, balanced diet in order to effectively lose and maintain your weight. The GOAL is to get you to rethink how and what they eat, and to finally take control of your nutrition.


Which is best between 2B Mindset or the Ultimate Portion Fix programs? The one that YOU will stick with! This totally depends on your personal preferences, personality and goals.

Do you need structure? Are you good with measuring your food and exercising for 30 minutes daily? Is weight loss your main goal? Then, I recommend you give the Ultimate Portion Fix a try. The combination of calorie/portion control with exercise stimulates weight loss.

Do you prefer healthy eating and less structure? Are you looking to get more veggies into your diet? Do you prefer not to have a strict exercise program? Then, you definitely should try the 2B Mindset.

Whichever program you use, do your best to stick to it—but, don’t beat yourself up on days when you just don’t show up. Just acknowledge the misstep and get right back to your program.
