An essential tool in a Metabolic Balance kitchen is a kitchen scale to weigh out your ingredients when you first start the program. One ingredient that is helpful to weigh are eggs! Often recipes call for a “large” or “medium” egg but what does that truly mean? Well we have you covered with this infographic below that gives a weight for each of the different egg sizes!
One of the greatest aspects of Metabolic Balance is the results it can bring. Check out this great testimonial from Sandra who describes how Metabolic Balance has changed her life.
“In the beginning it was a big change because everything was so new. However, after a short time, I was on the right track to my goal. I felt very uncomfortable in my body. I had no self-esteem. In addition to the great weight loss, my mental state is the biggest change. I have regained much more joy in life and I radiate it, too. ” – Sandra G. , 28 years old

Intermittent fasting has been a trend for a few years now. Dr. Ethan Weiss, a cardiologist at the University of California, San Francisco, started researching this topic in 2013, and even started practicing it himself. Weiss started a clinical trial in order to learn more about the potential benefits of intermittent fasting. The goal of the trial was to compare the health of patients who were fasting between 8pm and 12pm and a control group that ate at 3 regular mealtimes. Interestingly scientists found no significant differences in weight loss, fat mass, cholesterol, or blood sugar control between the two groups. Furthermore, fasting patients actually had more lean mass than fat mass loss compared to the group with 3 regular meal times. This study provides further evidence that a lifestyle such as that of Metabolic Balance that is based on 3 regular meals is the way to optimal health!
Yesterday we highlighted the benefits of apples so today we have delicious recipe using apples for you!
1 serving of feta (from sheep’s milk)
1 slice of crisp rye bread
1 serving of salad
1 Tbsp marjoram/oregano
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 125-150°F. Use a food processer to blend the rye bread into flour. Cut the feta into slices, place in an oven-safe dish, and heat in the oven. Grate the apple and mix with the rye flour. Heat a pan and toast the apple/rye flour mixture in it and season with salt, pepper and marjoram. Then take the feta and roll it in the toasted mixture. Wash the salad, arrange it on a plate, and then add the “breaded” feta slices on top. Enjoy!

Metabolic Balance is a nutrition concept that balances the metabolism and the whole body. You get a quality of life that you cannot only feel, but also see. One benefit that many of our clients see is how this program and way of living can also be a rejuvenating cure for the skin. A balanced proportion of macro- and micronutrients and the right amount of water will provide the optimal conditions for healthy skin.
Many foods that are regularly on the menu with Metabolic Balance, such as high-quality oils, berries, herbs or carrots, also contain natural beauty elixirs, which enhance the positive effect of the nutrition on the skin.
Although face creams and skin products can help with skin maintenance, the key to clear and healthy skin comes from within! What you eat and drink has a direct influence on your skin health. Providing your body with the correct balance of nutrients ( helps to “feed” your skin. Many skin problems such as acne, psoriasis and eczema can be caused by poor eating habits because your skin isn’t getting the proper nutrients it needs.
Skin diseases often result from internal illnesses and nutritional metabolic disorders. For instance, research has found that acne occurs in primitive tribes only when they gave up their traditional diet. Before that the tribe members had no skin problems.
Evidence also suggests that acne can be aggravated by dairy due to the growth hormones found in dairy products like milk. Milk in particular is a real hormone cocktail and contains precursor molecules of testosterone – a male sex hormone significantly involved in the development of acne. Milk also contains insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), which is similar to insulin and also stimulates testosterone production.
When it comes to your diet and the Metabolic Balance program, be patient and consistent. Whether the change is due to an illness or cosmetic concern, your skin won’t improve overnight. That being said, if you stick with it, it will be worth the investment. Many of our clients notice a clearing up of their skin or having healthier skin after following their plan!
