About Metabolic Balance
We offer a programme called Metabolic Balance® because quite simply, it WORKS.
Metabolic Balance® is a three-month nutritional programme that considers hormones, circadian rhythms, inflammatory markers and works to reset the body’s metabolic rate. It improves metabolic markers, it improves quality of life scores and the key point is that people do not rebound, but rather gain a much greater sense of body awareness that means that metabolic balance becomes a way of life.
Why Metabolic Balance?
The true test of a good weight loss programme is not where you are at the end of it, but rather whether the weight loss has been sustained 2 years after finishing the programme.
As we enter menopause, we enter a state of inflammation, increasing insulin resistance and oxidative stress. Weight can suddenly become much harder to shift and this can lead to health problems. This is why it is so important to reduce insulin resistance and inflammation as soon as weight gain starts to become a problem.
The “Study for evaluation of the metabolic balance®-programme” looked at 851 patients and found that:
90% of participants lost weight
The average weight loss was 7.2 kg 1 YEAR LATER
Metabolic markers (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL triglycerides and gamma GT) all improved during the programme
Significant improvements were reported by patients in the dimensions “mental condition”, “everyday life efficiency” and “pain”
The key feature of this Metabolic Balance weight loss programme is real food with no calorie counting. As a result the method gives sustained weight loss that lasts in time to a far greater degree than other popular regimes.
Additionally, as a direct result of the improved metabolism, high blood pressure, cholesterol and inflammation often improve along with many other issues like insomnia, aching joints and anxiety.
You take key measurements and complete a questionnaire.
You have a comprehensive fasting blood test done.
From your measurements, medical history and blood test results, a personalised food plan, specific to your needs, is created.
You have your first online consultation with our Registered Nutritional Therapist during which she will take you through the plan and you will set a start date.
Over the three months, you will have a total of eight online appointments with our Registered Nutritional Therapist to review your progress and make any adjustments as necessary.
At the end of the programme you have another blood test to reassess the key makers of metabolic syndrome.
