Introducing the Balance Factor…
The Balance Factor (BF) is the simple approach to eating that will change your life forever.
The Balance Factor is the formula you use to keep your eating consistent, 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 macronutrients (Carbs, Fats, Proteins) at every meal while you make endless combinations of the foods you love to eat.
Balanced Café is a daily tracking app that simultaneously graphs your Balance Factor and your calories to show you how balanced you are with eating. (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 higher in fats and proteins than carbs. A BF = 0 means a good balance of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
- Step 3: Use the ‘meal builder’ in Balanced Café and work at building meals that come close to 0.
- Step 4: The objective is to keep your BF consistent on a meal to meal basis and to reach your caloric goal. The graphs will help you reach both of these goals.
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.
