Studies suggest that a diet rich in fiber can help reduce the transit time of foods in the digestive system, so less dietary fat and cholesterol are available to the system. Chitosan is not digestible and therefore has no caloric value. Taken before meals, this fast-acting Chitosan is a helpful addition to your weight management program.

Natural Balance Diet Plan
Try incorporating these simple, proven methods into your lifestyle for healthy weight loss and maintenance. This dietary supplement, when used in conjunction with the Natural Balance Diet Plan, is intended to support a healthy weight maintenance program.
1. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables with every meal and snack.
This helps ensure healthier sources of long lasting daily energy, fiber and nutrients with less fat and sugar. Eating fruits and vegetables as snacks also helps decrease hunger cravings!
2. Choose unprocessed and fresh, whole foods as often as possible.
Some examples are: brown rice instead of pasta, oatmeal instead of toast, fresh whole fruit with skin instead of canned. Reduce starchy foods to whatever extent possible. This approach helps to maximize the consumption of healthy fibers and foods that typically have a low glycemic index, resulting in improved appetite control.
3. Move every chance you get!
A regular exercise program is the best option to reach desired goals. For example, a brisk, daily walking routine of 30-45 minutes will utilize calories and stimulate fat metabolism and fat loss.
4. Practice moderation.
Watch meal portions. Whenever possible, additional servings at meals should include only fruits and vegetables. Avoid eating late at night.
5. Avoid constantly checking the bathroom scale!
Since the scale measures only total body weight, it cannot measure body changes or fat to lean muscle ratio. The mirror and how your clothes fit are the best indicators of firmer, leaner muscles!
6. Practice reality!
There is no magic pill or food for successful long-term weight loss. Consistent healthy choices over time enhanced with Natural Balance dietary supplements will help you meet your goals!
Use only as directed. Take four capsules before lunch and four capsules before dinner. As with any form of fiber, drink at least eight glasses of water per day.
Cellulose, gelatin capsule, magnesium stearate.
Do not use if safety seal is broken or missing. Keep out of reach of children. Keep you licensed health care practitioner informed when using this product. Store in a cool, dry place.
Does everyone need supplements? Not everyone needs supplements. However, just about everyone can benefit from supplements. You may have a specific issue you want to address, like fatigue or trouble focusing for more than a few minutes at a time. Or you may feel great, in which case supplements are like oiling the parts of a well-running machine so that it keeps performing at its best.
Why can’t I get all the vitamins and minerals I need from my food? That would be great, wouldn’t it? Unfortunately, most of the soil in which our food crops are grown has been depleted through extensive use. Hundreds of years ago, farmers could let fields “rest” for a season while the soil renewed itself with the help of rain, earthworms and microbial activity. Now with a more populated planet and higher food demands, fields are kept in production and the soil becomes depleted.
How do I know which supplements to take? If you have no specific health issues, start with a basic multivitamin or even with just vitamin C, proven to help prevent and shorten the duration of colds and flu-related illnesses.
If I take supplements, can I worry less about my diet? Supplements are never a substitute for a good, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. However, eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water, exercising, getting enough sleep AND fine-tuning your health with supplements can be a powerful combination.
Are supplements safe to take? Although supplements are generally safe, it’s always best to check with your doctor before starting on a program of supplements. Some supplements may not be appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, for example. And the most important thing is to observe how you feel while taking a particular supplement. Listen to the feedback your body will give you!
What if I’m pregnant? If you’re pregnant, ask your doctor or midwife about a good prenatal supplement. You may need extra iron or folic acid during your pregnancy, and prenatal vitamins are formulated with both you and the baby in mind.
Can supplements make me look better? Many people swear by treating their skin from the inside out. Popular beauty-boosting supplements are hyaluronic acid, collagen peptides, vitamin C, omega-3s and antioxidants. When combined with exercise, a healthy diet, enough sleep and use of sunscreen, these supplements can be a powerful weapon in your beauty arsenal.
Can supplements keep me from getting COVID-19? While no supplement has proven effective in preventing or curing COVID-19, a healthy body is more resistant to illnesses. Get enough sleep and exercise, drink plenty of water, eat the healthiest diet you can and find the right supplements for your body! Many people love immune-boosting supplements such as turmeric, ginger and of course, vitamin C.
Can supplements help me with stress? Many people swear by plant-based calming supplements such as chamomile, rhodiola rosea or ashwagandha. Melatonin is also popular for enhancing sleep. We believe that a healthy body is naturally more resistant to the stresses of everyday life, but you may need extra help from a supplement during a particularly stressful period.
How can I find the right supplement for me? Read, take advantage of the information we offer here, ask your friends and family what has worked for them, and ask your doctor! Then finally, choose a supplement according to your needs and observe how you feel while taking it. And lastly, congratulate yourself for taking an important step towards a healthier you!
