Balance Factor

Introducing the Balance Factor

The Balance Factor (BF) is the missing piece in EVERY healthy plan on the planet.

The Balance Factor is not a diet itself but rather the formula you use to keep your eating sustainable, healthy, and goal oriented.  It’s the tool that helps you maintain your size or keep you in a fat burning state while you get enough calories to improve metabolism, stop cravings and lean down.

How does it work? The Balance Factor simply balances your carbohydrates while letting your body manage your fats and proteins as needed.

Balanced Café is a daily tracking app that simultaneously graphs your Balance Factor to show you how balanced your eating is.  (Dare we compare it to learning how to read and then enjoying a lifetime of literature!)

  • Step 1:  Download the Balanced Café app using any apple device.  It’s free!  (So is 4tlof’s Food Lover app!)
  • Step 2:  Choose a food you wish to eat and look at its Balance Factor (BF).  A +ve BF means the food is higher in carbs than fats and proteins.  A -ve BF means the food is is higher in fats and proteins than carbs.  A BF = 0 means a good balance of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
  • Step 3:  Add the BF‘s of each food together to calculate the BF for the meal or let the Balanced Café app do it for you.
  • Step 4:  Aim at keeping your BF consistent on a daily basis.

Regardless of your eating style, the Balance Factor keeps you in a steady state that gives your body a physical, metabolic and mental advantage.  You are no longer forcing caloric restriction or guessing at what foods will work to maintain or achieve your ideal body size.  Once you get comfortable using the Balance Factor, your BF graph will level out and you will be on your way to a maintaining a healthy state or a steady state of fat burning.
