2B Mindset Stir Fry Recipes, easy recipes, quick recipe, keto

A few weeks ago I decided not to eat any more quarantine snacks and start taking care of myself. It’s tough to do in times like these. Being unsure of things to come can cause so much stress.

It’s easy to mindlessly eat while watching tv to feel better. I made that change by joining Beachbody to get into shape and 2B Mindset to adjust my eating habits.

I have tried so many diets in the last 6 or so years trying to lose weight. My hormones, however, with the onset of pre-menopause made that task nearly impossible.

I finally found the answer… lifting weights with Lift4 on Beachbody along with the 2B Mindset Diet. The two of these programs are changing my body in ways I didn’t think possible.

I am now 4 weeks in and I am losing the stubborn belly fat!! I was always a thin even framed person. In the last 6 years, my body turned into an apple shape. I had a swollen bloated belly that would not budge no matter what diet I tried.

The Lift4 Weight workouts have made my core stronger and the belly is on its way out. I am so excited to say I am down 2 inches or 1 dress size so far. My belly is deflating!

What is 2B Mindset?

The 2B Mindset diet is very similar to Atkins or Keto except you can have FFC’s or fiber-filled carbs for energy. The concept is water first, veggies most, and protein and FFC’s minimal.

It is so easy because I love veggies and you can have as many of those as you want. No counting calories or carbs. Just making the right choices for each meal.

The diet was designed by Llana Muhlstein for Beachbody. The great part is you do not need to join Beachbody to get on the 2B Mindset program. You can buy her book You can Drop It to get more details on how the diet works, recipes to get you started, and tips on how to manage your food intake. Ilana also has a great Youtube channel called Living With Ilana with lots of information and recipes.

FIY! If you choose to join Beachbody I have the best coach! She is the most amazing motivator and her body rocks! You can contact Vicki on her Beachbody Profile and when you sign up just add her as your coach. She really is amazing at guiding you on how to get back in shape.

After joining, and when you decide to try the 2B Mindset for weight loss. You will be able to view videos on how the diet works, along with special recipes and tips form Ilana herself every month. There is a private Facebook group you can join for comradery and support. You will get a kit with a 2B Mindset water bottle to track your water intake, a meal tracking journal, and a recipe book.

Quick 2B Mindset Stir Fry Recipes

Today I am sharing a round-up of my fav 2B Mindset stir fry recipes that I have made so far. With diets I tried before, all I ate was salads. Well, I ended up putting way too much dressing on it to make it taste good. With stir fry, you only have toasted sesame oil and low sodium soy sauce. So I am able to get a great taste with little ingredients.

Toasted sesame oil is considered a Fat in this diet so only use a teaspoon or less if you can. Low sodium soy sauce is considered a Freebie in this diet but you must still watch how much you use so you do not overdo it with salt intake. I usually use a teaspoon to a tablespoon pouring it over the meat in the stir fry for taste. Less is more for both.

Here are some of my fav stir fry recipes. Feel free to change out the veggies I used. As I make more I will add them to this post so make sure you pin it for future reference. Enjoy!
