Metabolic Balance® is a German diet program that is based on over 25 years of research. What attracted me to learn more about Metabolic Balance® was primarily that it worked on the concept that our body is capable of producing (on its own) the hormones and enzymes required to function efficiently. It identifies the root cause of how and why a person stores and releases energy and fat. Unlike other programs that require excessive supplementation and the use of shakes, Metabolic Balance® works on the principle of eating wholefoods and by analysing your blood chemistry, a personalized all-natural nutrition plan is worked out to balance your personal “body chemistry” with the right “food chemistry”.
Your plan concentrates on the exact foods that possess the essential, vital nutrients your body most needs. Based on an in-depth scientific and innovative understanding, Metabolic Balance® develops your personalized nutrition plan to naturally balance your hormones, enzymes and your biochemistry.
A welcome side-effect of Metabolic Balance® has been help with hormonal migraines and menopausal symptoms. It can also help in inflammatory conditions such as diabetes and gout. One of my favourite side-effects of Metabolic Balance® is it is naturally anti-ageing! By helping to recalibrate your hormones it helps your body reset and naturally increases your body’s production of anti-ageing hormones such as melatonin and DHEA!
So what is involved and how do you know it’s for you?
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
- First, we assess exactly where your health is at in an initial consultation. We look at any issues such as hormonal imbalances, toxicity, stress, thyroid issues etc to see whether any of these may be part of why you can’t lose the weight. I also like to ask questions about your relationship with food as this I find is a big factor in losing weight and ultimately keeping it off. Commitment to change is also another big question here. The program works and works extremely well, but you need to be willing to do the food prep and try new foods. If not, then I would suggest Metabolic Balance® is not the program for you and we work out an alternate solution. If you decide Metabolic Balance® is right for you, then we will take your body measurements and look at your food likes and dislikes and you will be given a form to get fasting blood tests done.
- Fasting Blood Test – This test assesses 36 different blood parameters, including inflammatory markers, thyroid levels, cardiac markers, iron studies, cholesterol breakdown, pancreatic enzymes, liver studies and blood glucose levels. Together with your measurements, your tests results will be used to formulate your unique nutritional plan.
- Congratulations you now have a Metabolic Balance® Plan! – Your plan is usually ready for you a week from having your blood tests done and is specific to you and your unique nutritional needs. It is beautifully set out into 4 phases equipped with shopping lists and meal plans.
Your Metabolic Balance® Investment – $1395. This includes a personalised food plan, recipe generation and inspiration with 7 coaching sessions spread over a 12 week period – (There is an additional cost for the blood test to generate your MB plan payable to QML pathology which is approximately $135)
If you would like to know more about Metabolic Balance® call email me to organise a complementary chat.
Remember, Metabolic Balance® is more about finding the right foods to complement your body. It is not just a weight loss diet but more-so weight “release” which is a welcome side-effect of following the plan 🙂
Here’s my own experience with MB helping my Endometriosis, Endo & Me
A client’s experience
With the onset of menopause (….and COVID) my weight just ballooned. Nothing seemed to shift it – I just kept getting heavier and heavier. Juanita suggested Metabolic Balance and, at first, I wasn’t sure. Then, after struggling with other methods I finally decided to commit…and I’m so glad I did.
After a blood test and consultation I received my individual eating plan. Juanita coached me through some rules, helped me make meals exciting, and most importantly kept me motivated. Soon people were commenting on how much healthier I looked. They said my skin “glowed”. Then the weight really started to shift. After three months I hit my goal weight and was back in my healthy weight range. I had more energy, felt comfortable in my body and suddenly the heat no longer bothered me!
Thank you Juanita for making such a difference to my life. – Sam
