2B Mindset Review: My Opinion On The Diet Guide
Hi there! My name is Barbara, and I’m a single mother of 2 little boys.
Life has been hectic ever since the day their father decided to leave us so he could chase after a younger, thinner version of me.
I don’t want to go too far into details, but let’s just say the experience left me more than a little shaken. I was downright depressed, and turned to binge-eating as a way to cope with the break up.
More over, I had this sort of idea that I was getting back at him in a way, by saying I didn’t care about my appearance, that I was fine with myself either way. Ultimately, that was a lie to myself, and more harmful to me than anyone else.
Beyond gaining weight, I started to have an impact on my mental health. I was negative all the time. I had no energy after about 2 PM. I was dragging my feet through life.
Eventually, I realized enough was enough! I wasn’t going to just sit around moping and dragging myself down because of my ex-huband’s actions. I needed to get back to who I used to be. I wanted to fit into a Bikini again.
So I started searching for a good meal plan or diet to follow, which is how I eventually discovered the 2B Mindset, a newer program created by Beachbody.
UPDATE: I found a much better alternative, and included my results since swapping to the new diet. If you’re interested, keep reading. It’s included at the bottom of this post.
My 2B Mindset Review
I came across the 2B Mindset while through Beachbody’s various selections. They’ve created a lot of the most popular workouts and meal plans, including the 21 Day Fix, so I expected it to be pretty high quality.
In fact, I was so confident in their brand that I decided to purchase the program without doing further research. Big mistake! I would come to regret this not too much later, but let’s start with one of the main things I didn’t like about the program.
This is an incredibly pricey diet to follow. I paid $119 for the BASIC package – the cheapest version. I even had to pay for shipping and handling!
To some of you, this may not be that much, but when you’re living week-to-week on a budget, it is. At that price, I expect a meal plan to come with a personal chef…
Then, when you get into the actual content of the guide, you’re going to find yourself disappointed. Like, maybe if the eBook was groundbreaking it would be worth it in the end, but ultimately I was really let down by what I got.
The advice is OK but it just generally comes out to telling you to eat a lot of veggies and drink lots of water. There’s not even a workout that comes with it.
It really just felt like information that could easily have been googled. I wanted something more personal and informative, but what I got was nothing new.
My Incomplete 2B Mindset Results
I tried to stick with it, but after a week I had enough of the 2B mindset. Maybe other women were really seeing better results, but for me it was just boring and bland and filled with a lot of fluff.
Plus at that price I was really expecting something indepth, if you ask me just telling women to drink lots of water and eat a lot of vegetables isn’t something you charge $100+ for.
The main appeal seems to be the way she has you do this by dividing up your plate, but even after you do that you get a sense that the whole meal plan was created around this one twist.
I’m really not a fan, and overall my 2B Mindset results are obviously nothing to brag about since I stopped it so soon.
I was really upset afterwards, so I went on the internet to complain and see if anyone else shared my sentiments. To my surprise, plenty of other women had felt ripped off by the diet… if only I had done my research sooner.
But ultimately, it worked out in the end. While I was venting on one of those dieting boards, one of the women recommended an alternative diet that I’ve since swapped to.
The 2B Mindset Alternative that is CHEAPER and BETTER…
The diet that was suggested to me, that I looked up reviews for and found to be pretty solid, was the 2 Week Diet by Brian Flatt.
I wish I had found the 2 week diet way earlier in my weight loss journey…first of all, Brian Flatt’s guide is WAY cheaper than the 2B Mindset. Then, it also comes with an activity handbook, as well as a motivation PDF, which is way more than what I was getting with the 2B Mindset.
And to top it all off, the 2 Week diet was only a fraction of the price of the 2B Mindset, costing only $37.00. Visit Brian’s website at www.2weekdiet.com for more information.
2B Mindset vs 2 Week Diet
Let me show you the difference in the pricing.
It’s plain to see how much more you get from the 2 Week diet.
I’ve been on Brian’s diet for a full 2 week diet and for the first time in a long time, I’m having fun. The program is really easy to follow along and Brian keeps your motivation high!
I’m actually enjoying the food I’m eating, which is more than I can say I got out of the 2B Mindset. With this, the foods are actually delicious.
I have a feeling my results with the 2B Mindset are going to be great!
UPDATE: My Results So Far
I’m back with an update on how far I’ve come following Brian Flatt’s diet plan!
A NEW ME!
This program has been absolutely life changing for me. I’m slimmer and no longer embarrassed about showing off my body here and there. I’m confident and more positive overall.
I even wake up with energy now! I don’t get tired throughout the day!
I know this 2B Mindset review didn’t turn out how you might have expected it, but I didn’t intend to just be super negative about the 2B Mindset diet the whole time. It just really wasn’t for me. Maybe it will work better for other women.
Ultimately, the main lesson I learned was the importance of finding the proper diet plan for you. For me, Brian Flatt’s 2 week diet met everything I needed and exceeded it, which is the only way I was able to achieve these results. Without it, I don’t even know where I would be.
There you have it! I hope this blog has helped someone out there. And Brian Flatts, if you ever find this post, THANK YOU!
