What is metabolic balance®?
Metabolic balance® is an innovative all-natural, food-based nutrition program that brings balance to your hormones, optimizes your health, and leads to a new invigorating lifestyle resulting in successful long term weight management. It is backed by over 25 years of scientific study and is managed by dedicated physicians and nutritional scientists.
The foundation of the program is metabolic balance's unique capability to develop a truly personalized nutrition plan based upon an in-depth analysis of your unique blood values, medical history and personal likes and dislikes. Your personalized nutrition plan acts as your “road-map”, indicating exactly which natural foods you should eat in order to orchestrate the biochemical changes needed for reaching your desirable weight and health goals.
I personally like Metabolic Balance because there are no prescribed injections, pills, shakes, or proprietary foods. Nor, as with some diets, are you required to keep “points” or count calories. Your local grocery store and farmers market can easily provide all the wholesome nutrient rich foods listed on your personalized nutrition plan. Also, I feel the plan is very sustainable. It really teaches you your individual "sweet spot", how and what to eat when you are feeling your best.
You are accompanied through the four phases of your program by a certified metabolic balance® coach (me). I guide you toward reaching your ideal weight, avoiding yo-yo dieting and helping you to embrace the amazing realization of a new healthy lifestyle and a true awareness of well-being.
The metabolic balance® creed comes from ancient wisdom:
“Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food” - Hippocrates (460-377 BC)
Why metabolic balance® works
Your personalized all-natural nutrition plan balances your personal "body chemistry" with the right "food chemistry". The research, over 25 years worth, goes to the root cause of how and why a person stores and releases energy and fat. It's base assumption is that your body is capable of producing (on it own) the hormones and enzymes that are needed to function. In order to function, a body requires "building material" in the form of proteins, carbohydrates and nutrients that are obtained from the foods you eat. Your plan concentrates on the exact foods that posses the essential, vital nutrients your body most needs. Based on this in-depth scientific and innovative understanding, metabolic balance® develops your personalized nutrition plan to naturally balance your hormones, enzymes and your bio-chemistry. There is no artificial manipulation of your biochemistry by the usage of injections, shakes, pills or specialized foods. Metabolic balance® is the right way to “diet”. In fact, it is not a diet at all - but rather a hormone balancing program that helps you to naturally lose weight and keep it off!
Why metabolic balance® is successful
While there are several reasons, here are four reasons why it works so well.
1. Your program is 100% personalized and actively supports your unique bio-chemistry and nutritional needs. Just as no two people are exactly alike, no two nutrition plans are exactly alike. Don't settle for a one diet fits all approach. You are unique and a personalized nutrition program must reflect this fact and be designed just for you!
2. The prescribed foods on your nutrition plan are uniquely designed to affect positive healthy changes while naturally diminishing your food cravings and hunger spells. Hence, you do not suffer from hungry as you do with diets, and food cravings become a thing of the past. You re-establish your natural and healthy sense of hunger.
3. Success breeds success! You start losing fat and weight rather quickly. Average weight lose experienced is 3 to 6 pounds per week. Achieving favorable results fuels and inspires your sense of "well being", your energy, commitment and your inner, "I can do it attitude!” New healthy habits are learned and appreciated, while old harmful habits are left behind and with time, forgotten. A new lifestyle emerges that feels great, and allows you to maintain your ideal weight with no yo-yo dieting.
4. You are not alone! You are accompanied by a qualified nutritional therapist and/or other expert practitioners referred to as, metabolic balance® personal Coaches. Your personal coach is there to support, teach, guide, encourage, and motivate you along the road to reaching your goal. Personal coaching is a substantial part of your success, and the coach team is an integral part of every metabolic balance® program. With your coach's instruction you begin to understand how different foods work to balance you metabolism and which foods hinder your progress. This knowledge is invaluable for reaching and maintaining a healthy, slim and vitalized lifestyle for the rest of you life!
How does metabolic balance® help you to achieve your ideal weight?
With your personalized nutrition plan you supply your body with all the vital and healthy nutrients it needs. Food is not selected according to calorie content or by percentage of fat, protein or carbohydrates. The criteria for food selection is the effect a specific foods has on your hormonal system, determined by the results of your blood panel.
Through this method a healthy and naturally balanced insulin production is promoted. Insulin is the “internal key” to your body's weight management system, and has a substantial effect on other hormonal and enzyme production. Your personalized nutrition plan allows your blood sugar and insulin to increase at a much slower rate (rather then surging);thereby, allowing you to avoid hunger and food cravings for a longer period of time. Subsequently, more fat can be burned during the space between your three daily meals and specially while you sleep! By following your nutrition plan and a set simple rules, you begin to strengthen and balance your entire hormonal system and to naturally manage your weight. You can experience rapid weight reduction, generally losing from 3 to 6 pounds of fat per week. By participating in your own personalized metabolic balance nutrition program, you are making a choice for increased health, vitality and quality of life - all at the same time.
The metabolic balance® program does not replace your usual consultations with your medical practitioner. Especially in relation to any symptoms or illnesses requiring medical supervision.
