10/10 Recommend to family, friends, & clients 

Sound advice, presented in an easy to understand, approachable way. As a woman, mom, wife, daughter, friend, and Registered Dietitian - I recommend this podcast to everyone including my clients. I'm a huge fan of Balance365.  Keep it up ladies! Your friend, @dietitianchels :)


Outlook shifted 

Since listening to this podcast (and being part of the Facebook group(s) of B365), my whole outlook on myself, my body, my wellness, my worth has changed for the better. I thank these ladies for showing me another way to be in this world. I no longer obsess over my weight or food. I very much look forward to each podcast released!


My Morning Coffee Date 

Especially in 2020, having a little positivity is so important. Every time I listen to this podcast, not only do I have a smile on my face, I discover something about myself. And I consider myself to have a whole hell of a lot of self-awareness to begin with! It's almost cliche to say this now but it truly feels like you're having coffee with girlfriends!
