The Balance Factor© Playbook navigates you through 8 simple steps to help you stay consistent with a healthy eating style that is ideal for you! Each step is personalized by using short questionnaires guiding you to choose identifiable components (bolded below) to create your own customized Balance Factor© Playbook. This unique playbook uses specialized features of The Balance Factor©App to help you focus on the individualized components that are the foundation behind keeping you and your body happy as you return to your ideal size.
Questionnaires for Steps 1 and 2 help you identify Roadblocks and adverse Mindsets to gain an understanding of why the body fails to respond to century-old dieting dogma. You will learn that there is an ideal environment necessary for the body to sustain a healthy eating style before permanent results can be achieved. A healthy eating style is one that keeps you AND your body happy and happens when the body consumes enough macronutrient-balanced calories to optimize metabolism; an approach that stabilizes blood sugar and optimizes ‘metabolic flexibility’ to use body fat as a fuel source.
Step 3’s questionnaire will guide you to choose an Identity. This helps focus your efforts on the healthy eating style that lets your body effortlessly burn body fat. Step 4’s questionnaire helps you choose Immediate Success Measures to ensure you are going in the right direction. You will then choose from the Outcome Indicators questionnaire in Step 5 to accurately measure your progress.
The final questionnaire in Step 6 of the Balance Factor© Program involves Troubleshooting. This step leads you through anticipating challenges that might increase your risk of returning to your former eating style. The troubleshooting option you choose will equip you with sustaining strategies to help you stay the course.
Each step of the program can be accomplished within a couple of days OR over a few weeks. The time it takes to achieve a sustainable and healthy eating style depends on how quickly you can track your meals and find your ideal ratio of carbohydrates to fats and proteins. Moving forward to the next step occurs once you can confidently use The Balance Factor© App features developed specifically for that component. Each feature builds onto itself as you focus on reaching your Caloric Goal and find the Balance Factor© that you and your body love until you reach your ideal size. There is no maintenance plan because your eating style is customized for you right from the start!
The Balance Factor© Playbook includes an introduction of the Balance Factor© Program, explanations and strategies for each component, visual instructions for using specific features in the Balance Factor© App to successfully navigate the program, and two checkpoints (Step 7 and 8) to keep you on track (at the pace you wish to go!). Checkpoints at approximately 8 and 12 weeks help you confirm progress using the “Fat Burning Check List” and the “Healthy Eating Strategy Check List”. These checkpoints use outcome indicators and (for members) the Balance Factor’s© Progress Program to record progress and graph your results.
