WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM METABOLIC BALANCE®?
Are you a serial dieter? Do you eventually find yourself regaining the weight and some more? Do you find it hard to resist carbohydrates such as bread, cakes, chocolate, crisps and pasta? Do most of your excess pounds sit around your middle? Do you have high blood pressure, high blood sugar, type II diabetes or PCOS? Is your energy level lower than you’d like?
If you answered YES to some or all of these questions, this may be caused by your metabolism, and Metabolic Balance® could be the answer you are looking for. Put an end to yo-yo dieting, stop being driven to eat the food you like and instead learn to choose the food you need.
Metabolic Balance® can help reset your metabolism, thereby regulating your weight healthily and naturally.
WHAT IS METABOLIC BALANCE®?
The programme uses a blood analysis to generate an eating plan tailored made for you – it’s not to be confused with the “blood type diet”, it’s not based on your blood type but on an analysis of your own blood. This is done at the beginning of the programme after which you will receive a personal food list and dietary plan that fit with your individual profile.
The science behind Metabolic Balance® is backed by over 20 years of research by German doctors and nutritionists. It’s tried and tested, with over 400,000 plans produced for clients based all around the world (some famous!).
It’s not a fad diet; it’s nutritionally sound and uses real food without any gimmicky or expensive meal replacements. You eat three nutritious meals every day and choose the foods from your personal food list. With the help of the right foods and a few simple rules you establish a new regime that enables you to achieve and maintain your perfect weight.
It works by promoting hormone balancing and primarily by regulating the amount of insulin your body produces. Fat burning and weight loss occur almost as a side effect of restored hormone balance. Although Metabolic Balance® cannot make any guarantees, the average weight loss on the programme is 3-5 lbs. each week for women and 4-7 lbs. each week for men over the first 2 weeks. Most participants experience a significant increase in their energy levels and improved sleep patterns.
WHAT BENEFITS CAN I EXPECT FROM METABOLIC BALANCE®?
In addition to weight loss and increased energy levels the Metabolic Balance® programme may also have a positive effect on the following:
- High cholesterol
- Type 2 diabetes
- Rheumatic/arthritic conditions
- Poor digestion
- Poor performance and lack of drive
- PMS/PCOS/menopausal symptoms
- Allergies/skin problems
WHY IS METABOLIC BALANCE® DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DIETS?
- It’s tailored-made to you.
- Only body fat is lost not lean tissue, often with complete transformation of body composition.
- It facilitates permanent weight loss through a change in your diet that is accomplished without hunger or fasting.
- There are no meal replacements, no calorie counting or fat-free products.
- It’s a 100% all natural programme, using every day foods found in your local supermarket.
- No yo-yo rebound effect: once your metabolism has been reset, your weight should be easily maintained by following some basic rules.
METABOLIC BALANCE® THE PROCESS:
There are 4 phases to the programme and this is usually spread over 3 months and 7 consultations.
After receiving your blood analysis results and personal data, you will receive your individually tailored Metabolic Balance® nutrition plan.
Phase 1 consist of a mild 2 day detox, to cleanse and prime your body for the nutritional regime.
Phase 2 consists of a 14 day structured strict phase, during which you will start losing weight as well as begin to feel energised. Detox and withdrawal symptoms as well as hunger can also be experienced for the first few days. Exercise is not encouraged during this phase as it is a period of re-adjustment for the body and we are trying to train it to use fat as its form of fuel instead of carbohydrates.
Phase 3 is a more relaxed phase, during which you will be able to include more food into your plan as well as have a cheat meal including alcohol and “off list” foods. Despite this you should carry on losing weight, feeling more energised and you may also notice a huge change in the foods you enjoy, no longer craving foods you previously depended on. Moderate exercise is encouraged at this stage based on your level of fitness.
Usually by week 12, you will be ready to embrace the final phase – the maintenance phase. You will be feeling and seeing the benefits that the Metabolic Balance® programme has brought on and you will be confident with your eating habits to continue to enjoy this new lifestyle.
Note that if you have a considerable amount of weight to lose, you might need to carry on phase 3 for longer, however long it takes you to reach your goal. Remember, the weight took a while to come on so you need to allow some time for it to come off.
Please be aware that Metabolic Balance® is not suitable during pregnancy/breastfeeding, for people with renal disease or for those on a vegan diet.
METABOLIC BALANCE® – THE COST:
For patients not able to get to Southernhay Clinic, consultations can be carried out by phone or Skype, however, the very initial consultation must be face-face.
Blood tests can be taken at your local GP/hospital at a minimal cost. The blood sample will need to be sent to the testing lab in London by special delivery. Once blood results are received the turn-around time for an individual Metabolic Balance program is approximately 1 week.
