Prep Week DAY 2

Here’s why #mbf is so unique. Megan has set her workouts to the beat of music, which gives her the ability to increase and decrease the intensity and help you burn TONS of calories. For some moves, you’ll use two dumbbells, and for others you’ll use just one to put your body off-balance. This combo of symmetrical and asymmetrical training will challenge your core and engage more muscles throughout your body. Most workouts utilize the BOD Rope, the Cordless Indoor Jump Rope with weighted handles to help you focus on speed and effort, while reducing the chance of tripping. Trust me—this is not some old-school jump rope that you’ll use once and leave in the closet. You are DEFINITELY going to use this rope, and you are going to LOVE it.

About that music. Beyond being awesome, it’s meant to drive your pace and rhythm—Megan wants you working to the beat. So turn it up, have fun, and get ready to burn some fat.

Nutrition Daily Check-In:
As I mentioned yesterday, nutrition is KEY to your success. So many people struggle with what to eat, and sifting through the information that’s out there can be overwhelming. Some think cardio and crash-dieting is the magic formula for getting results. The truth is, you can’t starve your way to a better body. What you eat MATTERS. Beachbody offers some really amazing tools to help you get on-track with your eating:

  • The Beachbody Guide to Nutrition is a great resource for recipes and meal ideas, with an overview of Beachbody products to help you reach your goals.
  • The Introduction to Nutrition video talks about nutrition, 2B Mindset, and Ultimate Portion Fix. Both nutrition programs are designed to help you get the best results with #mbf—and beyond.
  • 2B Mindset is a flexible approach to weight loss that follows the “Plate It” method, which shows you how much of specific macronutrients to put on your plate, with no tracking calories or weighing food. This flexible approach allows you to satisfy your appetite while still staying on-track. 2B Mindset was created by Ilana Muhlstein, RDN and author, and is based on the strategies she discovered to help herself lose 100 lbs. and keep it off—even after having 2 kids.
  • Ultimate Portion Fix gives you control over food by teaching you how to portion out macronutrients with color-coded containers. You’ll learn how to create delicious, perfectly portioned meals aligned to your goals while still enjoying the foods you love. Creator Autumn Calabrese is an author, and a fitness and nutrition expert. Her programs have helped millions of people reach their goals.

Everyone is different, so it’s important for you to check out both programs and pick the one you want to use with #mbf. BOTH will teach you how to track what you’re eating to help you reach your goals.

GREAT NEWS! If you purchased a Challenge Pack, you get streaming access to BOTH nutrition programs. You’ll get Ilana’s tracking journal for 2B Mindset and Autumn’s portion-control containers for Ultimate Portion Fix. Send me a message once your package arrives and I can help you get started with the nutrition plan that best suits you and your goals.
