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.

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.Common Misspellings
