Balance Diet

Professional, online support to manage your weight loss.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

As of February 2011, BalanceD as reviewed below is no longer available. However, there is another diet called "The Balance Diet" that is still available.

BalanceD is an online diet program that stands for Balance Diet, a nutrition and exercise tracker that keeps you motivated whether you want to lose weight or simply eat healthier.

By becoming a member of BalanceD you receive access to their online tools such as diet and exercise logs, meal planners, health logs and progress reports. BalanceD requires that you come into the program with your own diet and exercise plan to follow. Any diet or exercise plan can fit into the BalanceD program. As a member, you will also receive support for any questions you may have on your diet from the BalanceD panel of nutritionists and health experts.

PRO
  • Online journaling encourages diet accountability and motivation
  • Flexible tools can be used with any diet or exercise plan
  • Keeping a food diary is an effective strategy for keeping health goals
CON
  • Membership fee does not include price of Elements Diet and Fitness health club access
DIET and NUTRITION

As a BalanceD member, you track what you eat and how much you eat via the online food log. You can use the food log as a calorie-counter or as complete nutrition analysis tool or both. Each day, you enter in the foods you consumed and the BalanceD food log will do the calculations for you.

In addition, once your data is loaded in your personal profile, you will receive sample meal plans that contain the caloric range that BalanceD has assessed for you based upon the information you have completed. The program also included recipes, snack ideas and answers from nutritionists on your diet questions.

You can also access the BalanceD program through participating wellness and fitness facilities in your area.

EXERCISE

The BalanceD exercise tools allow you to track the activities and exercises you do and see the calories you burned from each activity on the BalanceD Exercise Log. Your fitness progress will be tracked so that you will be able to see how far you have come and where you stand in reaching your fitness goals.

The BalanceD Health Logs allow you to enter in your health information like blood pressure, heart rate, cholesterol levels, blood glucose levels. The program then keeps track of your record and charts your health improvements via these important health markers.

You can also access the BalanceD program through participating wellness and fitness facilities in your area.

CONCLUSION

BalanceD is an online and offline diet and exercise tracking program that also gives you access to a panel of nutritionists and health experts for a one-time membership fee. Health research shows that keeping track of your health behaviors through a food diary and exercise log are two surefire ways to stick to your diet and maintain it over the longterm. But BalanceD does not customize a diet or exercise plan for you so you must come in to the online service with such a program already determined.

I like the program but lately I have not been able to log on, now for several weeks. If any one get this message please see if they will contact me, so I can get into my site.

Thanks

I've been on a few diets that never lasted for me. Thanks to BalanceD's system of support and accountability. I've lost the weight and plan on keeping it off for good. I found it to be very customizable.

This is the first diet site I've joined that that doesn't have any other advertising on it. It's just me and my plan. I have also been able to train for my first Tri using the exercise plans. My favorite part is the shopping lists that I am able to print out. This way I am not totally lost in the grocery store, trying to remember what my plan has me eating for the week. 99 bucks for a lifetime, you can't beat it.

Well designed platform with cool graphics and a good overall philosophy. I found Balance-diet at my health club, and I liked the fact that it emphasized diet and also activity, in other words how to lose weight and keep it off. I used to use it everyday, now I refer back to it every week or so - it was a great value and the supplements really worked for me.

What I like about Balancediet is that they combine a fitness regimen with a eating routine. It was cool to create a custom meal plan and shopping list.

The diet is good after you get over the shock that you may not get your money back. But it is truly a good site, and one fee for life time of $99. Now I use it daily.

This is a scam. They will not give you a refund. The only reason I still use is because, I paid them $99, and don't want to waste my money. The program is kinda okay, but I was cancelling because they say they give advice, and have an active communitity, but don't do or have either. No one ever replys to anything.

Don't have much of a community, no one seems to use the forums. They never reply to any of your messages, I have been trying to get my refund back now for more than a week. ( the one that they say you get within 10 days, if don't like)
