Those are hard questions to answer! Why? Because they’re BOTH great nutrition programs — honestly. The program that’s best for you simply depends on your personal wants and needs! I’ve had customers who have had great success with both. I’ve had success with both and have no hesitations about recommending either! 

So, let’s see which is best for Y.O.U.

Here's a super quick comparison, but check out the questions below to really find out which program is the right fit for your needs!

Should You Try 2B Mindset or Portion Fix?

To help you figure out which program is right for you, I have a couple of sets of questions that can help get pointed in the right direction… 

Question Set #1:

  • Do you feel like you have a negative relationship with food?
  • Do you ever find yourself under-eating or over-eating?
  • Have you ever “ate your feelings” after a bad day?
  • Do you ever feel guilty after treating yourself to something not-so-healthy?
  • Have you ever found yourself trying to justify your food decisions?
  • Or exercising simply to give yourself permission to eat something?
  • Do you find it hard to follow diets that are too structured?
  • Would you prefer a diet that’s mindset-based vs. rule-based?

If you answered “YES” to many of the questions above, then 2B Mindset might be right for you!

You can take a peek at the rest of the questions below, or skip down to the 2B Mindset video below to learn more from Ilana Muhlstein, the program creator & dietitian who lost 100lbs herself!

Alright, maybe you answered “NO” to most of those questions, then let’s move onto our 2nd set of questions…

Question Set #2:

  • Do you want to eat better, but just aren't sure how to do that for your body?
  • Or have no idea how much you should be eating?
  • Maybe you feel like you’ve been eating healthy, but just aren’t seeing results?
  • Do you find yourself craving sugary treats often?
  • Would you like to get your whole family involved in eating better?
  • Have you tried counting calories or macros, but hated tracking everything?
  • Do you prefer to have structure and clear guidelines to follow?
  • Does a meal plan that tells you what to eat and WHEN to eat sound appealing?

How did you do? Did you answer “YES” to many of the questions above? Then Portion Fix might be your nutrition program! Check out the video below to learn more.

2B Mindset vs. Portion Fix: My Personal Opinion

My personal preference is the Portion Fix. 

Why? I’m the type of person that loves everything laid out for me.

I love the structure. I love knowing exactly how many servings and how big of a serving of each food group I need per day!

I love that there are different paths. You can choose the way you balance your macros or you follow the timed-nutrition where it tells you EXACTLY what to eat for each meal or snack! As a triathlete & runner, I love that I can use timed nutrition to increase my performance!

Saying that, though, I also use many of the tools I learn from 2B Mindset — such as water first, veggies most. My husband teases me about the number of vegetables I can eat. LOL! 

And I’ve done both of these programs at various points in my life…

In fact, I used Portion Fix throughout my pregnancies and most of my postpartum journeys as it has calculations for pregnancy and breastfeeding!

Now, however, I am to the point where I know how many servings I need per day, I know portion sizes, and continue to eat BALANCED. So, I’ve been incorporating more of the concepts from the 2B Mindset nutrition program. Of course, I enjoy treats and a beer or glass of wine on occasion! Anyone that knows me well knows I am obsessed with kettle corn, love a good IPA, and love homemade hot cocoa!

What do I love about 2B Mindset?

For some people, too much structure can feel overwhelming and limiting. They want a little more freedom and love the idea of using the scale daily as a tool. (I personally don’t like to weigh daily, but everyone is different!)

This program definitely does more of a deep dive into the psychological and emotional factors when it comes to food and our relationship with food.

I love that you can do EITHER program based on where you’re at in your life, what your current struggles are when it comes to nutrition, and what your goals are for your health and fitness!

And I help my clients and new coaches choose the program that is best for them!

Either can be paired with your fitness program and both were actually created to be stand-alone meal plans (with fitness optional!). So, if you can’t workout, have an injury or limitation, or want to first start with a nutrition focus, you can!

There is no “right” program…

  • Both will help you see amazing results.
  • Both will help you feel energized and full.
  • You’ll never have to calorie-count.
  • You’ll never feel deprived.

And, when you join an accountability group with me, you’ll be provided with ongoing support, weekly meal plans, recipe ideas, and more! So, what are you waiting for? Let’s do this!
