I have been working with Cheri for well over 10+ years and she has done wonders for me in a variety of areas! To start… I have struggled with food allergies and sinus issues for the majority of my adult life, gone through multiple sinus surgeries and endless types of antibiotics to combat my chronic sinus infection and nothing worked. Doctors basically gave up on me and told me I’d have to live on steroids for the rest of my life. Cheri didn’t accept that, and got to work on figuring out what the underlying issue was. We did food allergy testing and food elimination diets to find out that I had a food allergy to dairy. When I removed dairy from my diet, ALL my issues went away, which was astounding! That was the first of many amazing things Cheri helped me with and she has been my “go-to” for health advice ever sense. More recently was my weight gain post having 2 kids compounded by the impact of COVID. Like many, the long work hours, lack of exercise, and stresses related to COVID caught up to me and I found myself weighting the MOST I have every weighed in my entire life. I know how to be healthy, because Cheri taught me, but I needed something structured to get me back on track. I was ready to make a change and reached out to Cheri for help. We started a new program and within just a few days, I was already starting to see the weight loss, but more importantly feeling better, getting improved sleep, and feeling more alert. I followed the program in full, and was so happy with the results I chose to extend my program. I lost ~20 pounds in the first 6 weeks! I started feeling more like me again, but wanted to keep going to get to my goal weight and optimal health again. I kept working with Cheri and continued eating healthy and exercising, and lost another 10 pounds. It took me 6 months overall, and here are the before and after pictures of losing 30 pounds! I’m now in my 40s but feel like I am in my 20s again with so much energy (both physically and mentally). I’m a better mom, wife, employee, and advocate for myself as a result of getting my health back in check. Not only do I highly recommend this program, I highly recommend Cheri! She is well educated in this this space, has a plethora of experience, and takes the time to get to know you and put together a customized program that will work for you and your body. You only get one body, invest in yourself and take the first step by reaching out to Cheri! You won’t regret it!
January 2019 I took a good hard look at myself in the mirror and I didn’t like what I saw. It’s not as if I had some dramatic event that caused what I was seeing it was just a slow build up over time. I stepped on the scale and weighed a whopping 265 lbs. I thought there had to be a mistake, the scale must not be functioning properly, so I checked the tags on my clothes and sure enough I was wearing XXL shirts and size 44 pants. I knew that in my mid 30s making subtle changes weren’t going to cut it I needed to really get serious if I wanted to get healthy and I needed someone that could teach me what I didn’t know. I found Cheri at Well Balanced Nutrition & More. She taught me about what I was actually putting in my body versus what me body actually needed to perform at it’s peak. Out went the drive thru bags and in came the greens, the veggies, the fruits, and the wholesome home cooked meals. Out went the soda and in came water and natural alternatives. The journey wasn’t easy, but she supported me, guided me, and taught me. She even found ways to incorporate the foods I loved like pizza and pasta into a healthy diet by elevating the ingredients. It took a year and a lot of hard work but It paid off. I walk around now 80 lbs lighter wearing medium shirts and a size 32 pant. I now legitimately look forward to eating a salad, I only shop organic produce, and I look for new ideas to add into my cooking repertoire. I finally figured out how to eat healthy and still look forward to meals full of flavor! Thank you Cheri for guiding me on my journey!
With Cheri’s guidance, I learned how to live a healthy lifestyle. Cheri taught me proper nutrition, which has become a permanent life-changing way of life. I have been working with Cheri for over 10 years and am grateful for all that she has done for me.
My name is Oran Searles. I made a decision to take control of my health back in 2010 at 45yrs old, realizing I was too heavy and at least 50 lbs overweight. Like everyone, I wanted to lose weight through diet and exercise but did not know or understand the science behind the diet piece of it. Cheri introduced me to her 6 week program, which was very detailed and easy to follow. I did her program and as a result I lost over 25 pounds and became in the best physical shape of my life. I continued to apply what I learned in her program after it’s completion and lost an additional 30 pounds for a total loss of 55 pounds in 90 days!! 12 years later I have kept the weight off, and continue to work out. I have continued to do her 30 program every January for the last 12 years. Her program was and has been life changing for both my physical and mental health. HIghly recommend it!!
I had already decided I wanted a healthier lifestyle when I met Cheri, I had joined a gym and was doing cardio and watching what I ate. I had been fit in my past and wanted to once again have the energy to play with my kids at the park and keep up with them hiking. I also wanted to learn once and for all what I needed to put in my body for lasting health. I stared with Cheri and committed myself to a 30-day detox and strength training. I followed exactly what she said, and I had amazing results with body fat reduction and increased energy. I continued to work with Cheri for another year and years later continue to live a much healthier and balanced lifestyle.
