What is Balanced Coaching? Why Does it Work?
The Balanced Coaching nutrition program uses a system backed by science and cutting-edge technology instead of the reliance on diet fads, wishful thinking, and lists of “good” and “bad” foods to push you toward your desired results. Our weight loss program has been built to teach the value in making changes focused on healthy dietary habits instead of a short-term, quick fix. Our goal is to show you that you can create long lasting results without depleting your body and mind of what it needs to sustain an optimal, healthy, and manageable state.
Have confidence throughout your program under the insightful eye of our Balanced Coaching expert nutrition coach, Sarah. After personally meeting and setting short & long term goals together, you will receive your custom and lifestyle specific calorie goal with full program booklet. Your Certified Nutrition Coach will be guiding you in training your metabolism, so as your body changes, so will your calorie goal. Through consistent progression, your body’s needs will begin evolving and what may have been optimal numbers when you first started will no longer fit your current nutritional needs. Have 100% certainty in your program and the results you are working so hard for knowing that the Balanced Coaching’ system adapts and adjusts as your body changes.
Over the duration of your program, you will experience a shift in your body and mind. The connection between habit changes and sustained results happens here, in a heightened sense of self-trust, confidence, and excitement about the choices you are making.

My name is John Prisaznuk and I began the Balanced Coaching program because I needed to get control over my food intake. At my heaviest, my weight had ballooned to 353 pounds, on a 5´6´ frame. Not a pretty picture. I tried everything, lots of fads, fasting, starving myself, the grapefruit diet, the Scarsdale diet and others. When I was about 18 I even tried eating ONLY on the weekend, and fasting Monday through Friday! How ridiculous was that!
I chose Balanced Body Foods and the Balanced Coaching nutrition program because it seemed manageable, the macros were counted out the food was prepped and fresh and I do not enjoy cooking! I know how to cook simple foods, but find it very time consuming and I have a job that keeps me very busy. I have learned that nutrition is part science and that food should be seen as fuel. I cannot just eat whatever I want, but I CAN have foods that I love.
For years I ate for emotional reasons, some I have discovered, some I probably have yet to discover. I am still a work in progress. I have learned that not to compare my body to anyone else, to put my blinders on. I have also learned that life happens. That I have to keep going and not get stuck in ¨poor me¨. I have learned that my body is MY body and I am responsible for what I put into it. I have also learned that my body needs balance. Balance with food, exercise, and rest. I need to know that I can have healthy, nutritious meals and use them for fuel.
What I love most about Balanced Body meals is the fact that macros and calories are calculated for me. I love the variety of foods, and that if I need a sweet now and then, Balanced Body has dessert choices, too. I love that I don’t have to cook, meal prep and clean up. So far what I have achieved is losing about 17 pounds. More importantly, what I have taken away from the program is the realization that food is fuel, and that there is always room for improvement. I have learned that sometimes emotions that are tied to food have to be addressed through other venues, like professional counseling. Something else I have taken away from the program is that I need to always be aware of what I put into my body, (Food is Fuel), but also strive to live my best life and enjoy it. (Life Happens).
I feel passionate about this program and coaching because as someone who has struggled with food intake for the more than 40 years, I felt like it was time to face the facts about food, and find that balance. But I needed someone to help me. I am a work in progress. I need to eat for the rest of my life. I will continue to learn how important it is to be aware of calories and macros, but not obsess about it, and enjoy my best life. The coaching aspect is critical to this program. I cannot do this on my own. My coach has been with me every single step of the way. She celebrates with me, encourages me, teaches me, and sometimes tells me things that are hard for me to hear, and I know its out of love and concern for me and my well being.
I know with one hundred percent certainty that my Nutrition Coach wants me to be happy, to succeed and to find the balance with my food intake and exercise.The program is sound, flexible and has changed the way that I look at food. The coaching piece is essential. I need the human connection. Balance is the key. Balanced Coaching continues to help me reach my goals for living my best life.
