Whole Foods

Vitamins? Yes, please! From food supplements? Not necessarily! A take-out hamburger with French fries washed down with a vitamin supplement tablet, doesn’t really work does it? It might ease your conscience but it’s not going to do much good in getting you healthier! For good health we need the best nutrients from real fruit and vegetables, fish, meat, eggs and whole grains. It’s real food sources that have the best chance for whole body results. Many large-scale research studies have shown that vitamin preparations and supplements added to processed food may not always improve health. Often they are ineffective and in the worst case may even damage your health. We advise simply reaching for fresh, seasonal, whole food. Always aim to have vibrant colorful food on your plate. Ideally stick to your Metabolic Balance nutrition plan to be sure that your body is provided with all the vital building blocks that it really needs. There are definitely some occasions where good quality supplements may be the right thing for you. But this always needs to be discussed with your health professional or Metabolic Balance coach. So remember food first is best!
