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 :)

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!
