In a recent effort to define the nation’s level of balance, researchers* found that 98% of Americans believe achieving and maintaining balance in their life is important, however, only 14% report that they always feel balanced. To help bridge this gap, Balance Bar Company, makers of Balance Bar® uniquely balanced energy nutrition bars, has launched The Balance Project, a multi-year, multi-platform program to open a dialogue that will aid in improving America’s levels of balance.
And I’m participating because, like everyone else, I am always in search of better life balance!
You know who else is participating? Gabi Reese – seriously, how cool is that? She is going to be providing advice, tips and her personal insights for addressing and achieving balance in these areas.
“One the biggest reasons I see people fail at achieving their health and wellness goals is because they don’t go into a program with a balanced approach,” explains Reece. “I’m thrilled to share my perspective on balancing busy lives, families and work with healthy diet and exercise habits that anyone can incorporate into their lives.” – Gabi Reese
I also L.O.V.E. balance bars. They taste great and they are based on the 40/30/30 nutrition model – a proven formula developed by scientists to help maintain blood sugar levels already within a normal range and that represents the caloric ratio the body needs to enjoy lasting balanced energy and help satisfy hunger for longer; 40% of total calories from carbohydrates, 30% from protein and 30% from dietary fat.
