With Christmas nearly upon us and the silly season so very nearly at its end, the global Metabolic Balance team is sending our most sincere festive wishes out and hoping everyone has a joyful celebration with family and friends. Here’s to a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year!
The Metabolic Balance Team wishes you a wonderful and peaceful Christmas! Enjoy the feast of love and have much joy within your families.
Metabolic Balance and Christmas
Can the Metabolic Balance guidelines also be taken in consideration at Christmas? Can you stick to principles like “only one type of protein per meal” even within an entire menu? Of course. How about the following 3-course menu, for example:
For the appetizer, we avoid protein and recommend a delicious avocado and apple salad. In the main course we feast duck breast with red cabbage and, as dessert ,roasted apple with sesame and vanilla pulp tastes simply wonderful. With this in mind, we wish you a delicious and happy Christmas!
Christmas markets and holiday parties are starting take place again this year for many of us.
Enjoy a safe and healthy Christmas and holiday season and get through it with our tips without gaining weight:
-Eat only 3 meals a day and take a 5 hour break between meals.
-Always start your meals with the protein portion of the dish. This way you activate the satiety hormone glucagon right at the beginning.
-Use bitter substances after the consumption of sweets.
-Christmas punch or mulled wine are also allowed during the Christmas season. But remember to drink plenty of water and unsweetened teas between meals!
From all of us at Metabolic Balance,
we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Start This Holiday Week Off Right!
After this strange and often unreal year 2020, we are thinking more than ever about what is important: friendship, solidarity, love – and of course health and well-being. We from Metabolic Balance are happy to contribute to the last two points with our personalized nutrition plans. In this sense, we wish you all the best for the Christmas week – enjoy it and stay healthy!
Happy 4th Advent!
We wish everyone a beautiful 4th Advent!
Now all the candles are burning and soon it will be Christmas Eve. Admittedly, this pandemic means that Christmas and all holidays will be vert different this year. Nevertheless, we hope that you have a relaxing and happy last Advent Sunday! No matter what you do today – we wish you wonderful hours with your loved ones whether in person or virtual!
Happy 2nd Advent!
Today marks the second week of Advent with two candles shining brightly on the Advent wreath.
We are in the middle of the Christmas season and here’s an important question for those following their Metabolic Balance plan … How are you doing? Are you being tempted by Christmas treats and drinks around you? Can you resist? Or is it hard for you to stick to your plan? We at Metabolic Balance recommend that you should not be too strict with yourself in the run-up to Christmas. Stick to the Metabolic Balance rules, stay as close to the plan as possible, but also enjoy the Christmas season with one or two cheats. It is important to do this in moderation and to deviate from the plan a little bit only once a week.
Enjoy the Christmas Season
Unfortunately, Christmas markets and parties will be cancelled this year but that doesn’t mean celebrations will not be in full swing. The Christmas season will bring temptations that you don’t have to resist completely. Simply follow these tips and you can enjoy the season without gaining those extra pounds.
-Stick to eating only 3 meals a day and take a 5 hour break between the meals. This prevents you from eating more than your stomach can handle. Take your time for dinner, too.
-If you can’t resist the sweet treats, bitter substances are very helpful after enjoying sweets. Christmas punch or mulled wine may also be enjoyed during Christmas season. However, drink it at mealtime and drink enough water between the meals.
-Finally make sure that you have healthy options around as an alternative!
That’s how you can get through the Christmas season without any worries.
The Start of Advent
Welcome to Advent!
Today is the start of Advent and the countdown to Christmas begins. Per tradition, on each Sunday leading up to Christmas one candle is lit, for a total of four lit candles by Christmas. Each candle represents one of four virtues: hope, love, joy and peace.
We wish you a wonderful start to the Christmas season! Enjoy the magic of these special days and have a good time!
