Now you can win the weight loss battle once and for all! The 2B Mindset is designed to help you lose weight happily so you can keep it off for good-without ever depriving yourself, counting calories, or even having to exercise until you’re ready!  Created by Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Ilana Muhlstein, the 2B Mindset is a practical, simple weight loss solution that Ilana herself used to lose 100 pounds after years of obesity and yo-yo dieting. With Ilana’s advice and real-world experience on your side-including her meal and food prep ideas, even tips for conquering emotional eating-you’ll have all the tools you need to live your life, eat food you love…and still lose weight. Launching 2018!

Who is Ilana Muhlstein, R.D. Nutritionist?
Ilana Muhlstein is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist-the highest standard in the field of nutrition. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Maryland, sits on the prestigious Executive Leadership Team for the American Heart Association, and leads the Bruin Health Improvement Program at UCLA.

While most kids dream of becoming pop stars or famous athletes, Ilana’s early inspirations were the knowledgeable Registered Dietitians that she’d met every summer at fat camp. Once she finally had the chance to become one herself, she never hesitated. Using everything she learned, she was able to personally lose 100 pounds. She’s built a thriving private practice in Beverly Hills, and has helped hundreds of people lose weight happily-and keep it off. Now she’s revealing all of her tried and true weight-loss secrets with the launch of The 2B Mindset program.

What Ilana says about her innovative approach:
 
You see, I’ve always loved food and I love to eat large portions. What I needed was a diet that would let me eat and feel satisfied, while still helping me lose weight. There was no diet on the market like that…so I decided to create it myself. I not only invented a solution to solve my own weight problem, so I could lose 100 lbs, I made it my career as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist—so I could help anyone lose weight happily and learn how to keep it off for good—and still go on living my life and enjoying the foods I love.
My mission is to help millions of people just like you win the weight-loss battle—and better yet, end the war forever. The system I created is a healthy approach to eating that lets you feel full and satisfied, while arming you with proven strategies that will help you co-exist with food in real-world situations, satisfy cravings, and anticipate setbacks before they happen — so you can WIN the weight-loss struggle every single time.
That’s why I say it’s not a diet. It’s a mindset.
But make no mistake, the 2B Mindset can help you lose weight—happily—without feeling deprived or hungry, without counting calories or cutting out whole food groups. It addresses the #1 issue with weight loss and weight management —food. Exercise is critical for living a healthy, functional life —but as they say, abs are made in the kitchen — and that’s the problem I designed the 2B Mindset to solve.
Best of all, I’ll reveal the one daily habit — so simple and powerful — that it will put you in an INSTANT weight-loss mode, whenever you try it. (You’ll need to plug into the complete 2B Mindset program to get that one!)
With the 2B Mindset, you’ll live your life, you’ll eat food the way YOU like it, and you’ll go to every party, and go out to dinner with confidence, instead of feeling tension and anxiety that you’re about to derail your weight-loss progress. In fact, once you learn the 2B MIndset, those situations can actually CONTRIBUTE to your weight-loss progress. Because, with the 2B Mindset, you’ll finally be in total control of food and your body, and you’ll have all the tools you need to reach your weight-loss goals while living a full, rich, satisfying life.
I’ll teach you the purpose of the foods we eat and when and how to enjoy them for maximum weight loss. I’ll share dozens of my personal recipes for healthy meals that taste so good you won’t believe how much you can eat — even my husband and daughter love them! And I’ll lay out all the techniques I used to lose 100 pounds — and my private practice clients have used to lose the weight and help keep it off.
Most importantly, I’ll help you shift your mindset, because a positive mindset means positive/healthy weight loss, with no more emotional eating, no more mindless snacking, and no more punishing yourself for eating food you love.
With the 2B Mindset I have just one goal — to make losing weight simple, enjoyable, and sustainable. You really can lose weight and be happy for the rest of your life! Just imagine that! I’m helping more than 100 clients and Team Beachbody Coaches experience that joy and freedom right this minute… and now it’s your turn.
Once you master the 2B Mindset, it’s yours for life. Losing the weight and keeping it off will be second nature—it will be your new reality—and food will forever remain an enjoyable part of your life. Believe me, it’s easy to lose weight when you’re feeling full and satisfied every day.
2B Mindset is for people who:

  • Want to lose weight, but don’t like to exercise
  • Do exercise but struggle with their nutrition and do not see the weight loss results they want
  • Cannot exercise due to injury/illness, but want to lose (or maintain) weight through better eating habits
  • Love food, love to eat big portions, and feel full
  • Are tired of yo-yo dieting, but want to maintain their lifestyle
  • Want an easy-to-follow way to lose weight without strict rules, like cutting food groups, counting calories, or eating small portions
  • Want to be free from obsessing about food and feeling overwhelmed by food choices

Team Retreat Forever FIT and the Dream Team United

I am catching up on life (remodeling a kitchen and office at once really puts you in a tizzy lol) and wanted to share our amazing weekend that our top leaders went on this past week!!!

As a fitness coach, my goal is to not only keep myself accountable for my own fitness journey, but also help others along the way!! As I have been able to help others, we have also found that growing a team of other like-minded go getters has really helped us with freedom for our families and financially… and since my team has made so many sacrifices and worked so hard to get to where they are today, this retreat was a way to congratulate them, but also allow them to enjoy a little vacation while spending some QT together!!

One thing that was extra special to me this trip was that my husband Brent was able to join me on this trip!! This was his very first Beachbody event that he attended… now it was not planned by corporate so he didn’t see the huge training and extras that go with those events, but this was a perfect first that he watched me host, so that made it so special!

Deidra Mangus, Dream Team United, Forever Fit, health and fitness coach, pregnancy fitness, healthy pregnancy, weight loss journey, stay at home mom, healthy mom goals, fitness motivation, online fitness coach PA, Elite Beachbody coach, successful Beachbody coach PA, Beachbody coach UK, pregnant fitness coach, healthy lifestyle  The only way he was able to go with me was if he was my assistant and helped with cooking all the meals for 25 women and helped keep the place clean! I would say him and our other male friend Jessie who came to do the same did an amazing job!!! I am so blessed that Brent was able to not worry about taking off work to be here with me!

I must say, I have to give him so much credit because there are not many husbands or guys out there who are willing to be in a houseful of 25 women to do what they did and not one time complained about ANYTHING!! Not even me being slightly needy and pregnant at the same time!!

This was also our very first big trip together and flying together! If you don’t know our story, we did things pretty quick.. Met, got engaged in 4 months, married in 6, pregnant in 7! And never had the opportunity to have a honeymoon because our schedules with work and kids just didn’t match!

So back to the trip!!! It felt so good to be able to grab a 30 person house to have us all stay together and get to know each other more and spend time together!! We came from all over the US: PA, WV, CA, MI, and

more!! We may not see each other as often as we want, but when we come together again, it feels like we have known each other forever and we pick up right where we left off!

Our theme for our retreat was “EMPOWER”- Our mission to to EMPOWER others to shoot for the stars, to overcome fear and do what makes them happy and what is important to them! So many people hold back because of fear, but we are all for taking leaps into the unknown, because as we did it ourselves, we found a beautiful world on the other side of fear and doubt!!

As I took this trip at 28 weeks pregnant, I did not know what I was going to get myself into with swelling and being in sunny Florida with 90 degree weather… yea, I have no clue how pregnant mommas do it lol!! I was SOOO swollen every day!!! But I didn’t let it get to me, I just kept on moving!! Yoga, MMA workouts, we did it all.. and rocked it!

Im proud to say this was my yoga buddy and I working out on our last day before we travel back home!! #committed #goals

I guess since we are fitness coaches, we can tap for a minute about nutrition! We had planned healthy meals for each breakfast, lunch, and dinner while in Florida:

Buffalo chicken Sweet Potatoes

Anndddd then came evening time.. I swear if my friends didn’t love cookies and didn’t suggest ice cream sundae parties, I would NOT have fallen off lol!! I can blame them right?? or blame it on the pregnancy??

Yes, my ice cream sundae was eaten in my two piece at 28 weeks pregnant and my belly was my table! LOL

During our retreat, we did have some training to continue empowering our leaders! Even leaders and successful coaches are hungry for more knowledge and growth!! And then after 2 days of training, we did finish off with a day in Epcot for the 25th year anniversary and wine and food festival… hold the wine please.. I’ll just take a sample of all the food!!  Deidra Mangus, Dream Team United, Forever Fit, health and fitness coach, pregnancy fitness, healthy pregnancy, weight loss journey, stay at home mom, healthy mom goals, fitness motivation, online fitness coach PA, Elite Beachbody coach, successful Beachbody coach PA, Beachbody coach UK, pregnant fitness coach, healthy lifestyle

I loved taking my pregnancy lifestyle pictures because this truly is ME!!! I love having the ability to be me, work from home, in yoga pants or comfy cotton dress with my belly hanging out, and helping others around the US/Canada, and soon to be UK!! Thanks to social media, it allows me to reach and help so many more people than just those in my community!!

It is so crazy to know this is our lives!! We pick the hours we want to work, we travel just a couple times a year (if we want) to meet up, have fun, get more training, and create memories, but we are women of all sizes and ages working on ourselves and our own fitness journeys, and hoping to help others who can relate to us along the way!

I am so thankful God has placed this opportunity in my hands almost 5 years ago when I was working full time swing shifts as a nurse with a newborn and 1 year old, and just wanting a way to have more freedom and time with my boys!!

This opportunity has allowed me more than I ever imagined: New friendships that I can call my other family, more freedom and time with my boys, financial freedom to provide for my family, more confidence as a person and mother, and a healthy pregnancy that I never had before this journey started!!

I am looking for 20 new women who are wanting to change their life!! Who are driven and hungry for success and freedom!! You must be fun to work with, willing to share your fitness journey, and willing to sacrifice some time to help others along their own journey— No education needed… my training will be good enough to help you grow a successful business of your own from home!!

Please fill out the application below to be accepted into a part of the #1 team in the organization!! Please only fill out if you are not currently working with another Beachbody coach!

What’s Working and What is NOT with My Pregnancy Fitness Journey

I am just about 26 weeks pregnant, and my body is changing BIG time!! I want to do this blog post NOT just for pregnant mommas, but also want to help those who struggle with their weight/fitness journey all together!

Deidra Mangus, healthy pregnancy, healthy mom, home fitness workouts, elite beachbody coach, successful beachbody coach PA, beachbody coach UK, mommy and son fitness, drinking Shakeology while pregnant, healthy new mom, new mom weight loss, pregnancy fitness motivation, clean eating tips,  third trimester pregnancy

Being a mom, pregnant, and getting older are all reasons we can use when we fall off track with our fitness journey.. Can I get an AMEN?!?! I mean really, there are sooooo many things that get in the way of our goals and results.. we get too tired, busy, annoyed by results not coming fast enough, and the fact that others around you may look better, fitter, and prettier, DESPITE how hard you are working… we compare, get frustrated, and shut down.

It’s time to put those blinders on and focus on YOU, what you are capable of doing, and YOUR current situation! I use to try and be that mom who had it all together, and then when I see others rocking the gym with their babies, looking like they never had a baby even 6 weeks after baby comes…. ya know.. eating nothing but clean foods.. Sorry ladies and moms who got it together like that.. but that is JUST NOT ME!!!

I talk about my fitness journey on social media.. my followers KNOW I am a sucker for nachos, cheeseburgers, stuffed crust pizza, peanut butter, and cheese!!! I can’t hide and I won’t! I do love working out, but my home fitness workouts are my jam! The gym use to be, but for my lifestyle, but I love letting my boys sleep and get my workout done early, or even let them workout with me and watch what I do instead of gym babysitters.. not saying there is ANYTHING wrong with the other option.. this is simply MY choice and better option for ME and MY FAMILY!!! 🙂 So yea, my boys love jumping up in the mornings with me and get down before school and rock out some push ups!! I call it “teaching them early” and watching mommy be healthy so they can have a positive role model to hopefully take after and live a healthy lifestyle themselves and continue the tradition!

But let’s talk about what is NOT working with me on my fitness journey:

  1. Too many cheat meals… it’s so easy to let those temptations get in the way. We crave a burger, and then you take the fries too. Then you want to eat out and the appetizers sound so good. Before you know it, your 1 cheat meal per week turns into 3 and 4.  So yea, the 80/20 rule with nutrition is KEY!
  2. Lack of water intake…. did you our bodies are made up of 60% water? Our bodies NEED water to stay hydrated, use water as a cleanse to get rid of toxins in our body, and more! I hate to admit that I have not had my daily allowance that my body needs every day. I am getting better, but some days, I am lacking!

Let’s talk about what IS working on my fitness journey:

  1. Exercising! Even if I am not running every day or lifting weights every day, I am still doing SOMETHING: Stretching, lots of yoga, still jogging, and lifting also!  No matter what exercise I am doing, it is helping me get stronger in different ways! Deidra Mangus, healthy pregnancy, healthy mom, home fitness workouts, elite beachbody coach, successful beachbody coach PA, beachbody coach UK, mommy and son fitness, drinking Shakeology while pregnant, healthy new mom, new mom weight loss, pregnancy fitness motivation, clean eating tips,  third trimester pregnancy
  2. Nutrition… when I AM on track, I feel such a HUGE difference! I do drink my Shakeology daily,ecause it is one meal that gives me that great nutrition and superfoods! It’s easy, convenient, and yea, I will take it if it tastes like a milkshake! So, it definitely pays off to eat healthy!
  3. Giving myself positive affirmations. It may sound silly, but there are times when I feel like throwing in the towel and giving up. Being on your fitness journey is not easy! If it was, everyone would be walking around with an 8 pack! But when I do struggle and feel like quitting, I talk to myself, give myself positive words of encouragement and push myself! It is amazing what you can accomplish when you change your attitude from “I can’t” to “I can” and “I will”.

This journey of eating healthy and working out is NOT easy, but it is totally worth the results!! My goal is to not allow myself to be on a “diet” because diets are only temporary and do not last forever.. once you get off that diet, then what happens?? Majority of the time, you end up gaining it back, plus more! So I am turning this into a lifestyle! If I fall off, have too many cheats, lack exercise a couple days, I do not give up.. I simply get back on track and pick up where I left off!

I am opening up 10 spots to my next fitness support group for those who have health and fitness goals and are ready to commit to a lifestyle change! I will help you create healthy habits, learn how to eat healthy, along with meal planning, and find a workout program that fits your needs and level of fitness!

Please fill out the application below to reserve your spot! Spaces are limited!

*Spaces are only for those who are currently not working with a Beachbody coach and new customers!

Shift Shop Week 2

Deidra Penrose Mangus, Shift Shop meal plan, top beachbody coach PA, elite beachbody coach, beachbody coach UK, healthy pregnancy, stay fit during pregnancy, pregnancy beachbody workouts, home fitness workout shift shop, online fitness coach UK, healthy meal plan, clean eating tips

So if you have been following my journey, the Shift Shop journey is in FULL force!! We are in week 2… my hubby and I and are following our challengers in our big exclusive test group! Being 20 weeks pregnant, I wanted to pick a program to follow from home that still challenged me, gave me cardio, weights, and an easy meal plan to follow, yet allowed modification for when necessary!! I know my body and definitely do not want to over do it and hurt myself or the baby!! So, this is what we choose!!

Being half way through week 2, we are kicking butt with these workouts!! They are a challenge for sure, but I think my past workout programs I did really got me in great shape to still be able to do this program without modification yet!! As my belly gets bigger, there will be some moves I may have to modify!!  But overall, my husband and I both LOVE the program and what it gives us!

 

We have been waking up every morning at 6 am and getting in our workout and it feels so good and have that 25-35 minute workout out of the way and really gives us energy to get our day going!

Let’s talk nutrition for a minute… nutrition is NOT easy for me!! It is what I struggle with the most! I use to struggle with eating at night… I craved sweets. Now that I drink Shakeology, it has SIGNIFICANTLY helped those cravings and I am good! Where I struggle with is snacking during the day and if I am out… which we have been traveling a TON lately!

But, I want to keep this pregnancy healthy and stay as in shape as possible and not gain those 60 lbs I gained with my other 2, so this Shift Shop program really allows us to focus on simplified nutrition and easy prepping with our food!

Here is our meal plan for Week 2! I am using Plan B 1500-1700 calories! And I may add an extra spoonful of natural peanut butter here and there lol… hey, I am just being honest!!!

Dinner tilapia with our fresh veggies from our garden turned into stir-fry! I used Bragg liquid aminos in the stir-fry cooked with EVOO! This is a must try!!

With our veggie stir-fry, we are mixing it up with whatever veggies we have from our garden!! So basically TONS of zucchini, tomatoes, and adding mushrooms, kale, and broccoli or green beans from the garden!
