Recipe Inspiration

At Metabolic Balance we like to integrate a serving of fruit into hearty dishes. One of our favorite ways to do this is by incorporating fruit into mixed salads. Today’s recipe inspiration is lettuce with boiled lentils, pickled beetroot and some pears. You can vary this salad with the ingredients that fit your plan. One variation would be to use mango instead of pear and avocado instead of beetroot. As we approach the summer months even consider adding seasonal fruits such as peaches or berries!

What to Eat?

Sometimes the world of health and nutrition can feel like an information overload. It can be hard to figure out what you should be eating and what person or program you should trust your health with. For many people it feels like a hopeless search especially when they are trying to lose weight, improve their health, or relieve symptoms from chronic conditions.

At Metabolic Balance we are here to help ease that overwhelming feeling! We know that each person has a unique body and understand that “one size DOES NOT fit all”. The personalized nutrition program and one-on-one coaching from our program will teach you to eat the foods optimal for your body and metabolism.

The Gut Microbiome

In the past decade the role of the gut microbiome in our health and well-being has been explored in thousands of studies. One link that has been discovered is that what you eat can impact your gut microbiome, which in turn can impact your overall health and metabolism. This highlights the importance of eating foods on a meal plan (like that from Metabolic Balance) customized specifically to your body to ensure that your gut gets the proper nutrients it needs to keep your body healthy.

Let’s Talk Legumes

Here are few tips for when you are buying dried legumes or beans.

When buying dried legumes, choose a transparent packaging with a printed expiration date. This allows you to check the quality of what you are buying. Getting your legumes from a bulk store is also a great idea because the turnover rate in these stores is usually high, meaning that you get fresh product. When inspecting the legumes, look for uniform size as well as clean, smooth, shiny surfaces. If they smell fresh and spicy when you unpack them, they are most likely fine. However, circular holes, dark spots, or even a “floury” powder at the bottom of the packaging, may indicate insect or worm infestation.

No Longer A Balancing Act

Do you feel like you are doing a balancing act with your health?

Things can feel stable for a weeks or months but then something can happen to upset the precarious balance you have. You may be starting to feel overwhelmed by the exercise program you are trying to follow or see that weight creeping up on the scale again. Or you may just feel no matter what program or diet you try, nothing feels stable, comfortable, and trustworthy.
Well that is where Metabolic Balance comes in. Rather than being a program designed as a one-size-fits-all, our program is tailored specifically to you!

Our focus is on resetting and balancing your metabolism. Metabolism is in simple terms all the essential processes that happen every second in your body in terms of using essential nutrients to power your cells. Some of the basic processes that are dependent on a properly functioning metabolism include all growth and repair processes; supplying oxygen to your organs; your detoxification processes that are performed by the liver; maintaining body temperature and hormone balance.

When you have a balanced metabolism, your weight is naturally stable and stays within a healthy range, your energy is just what you need it to be, your sleep is refreshing and energizing; your muscles are healthy and strong; your mind is clear and focused; your hormones are balanced; your blood sugar is stable and supports you throughout the day.

An imbalanced metabolism is intimately entwined with what you eat, how you eat, when you eat, your stress levels and the right exercise for you. The right changes to each of these areas makes real differences to your health.

You can reset your body and metabolism by making healthy changes to your lifestyle and that’s what we love helping people with.

To learn your foods and how to eat them, you simply need to find your metabolic balance practitioner. You can do this by checking our website: http://metabolic-balance.us/

Food is Medicine

“Food is Nature’s Medicine”
~ Dr Wolf Funfack, founder of Metabolic Balance.

Metabolic Balance was developed from the knowledge that what we eat has an enormous influence on the functioning of our body systems and processes and therefore on our overall well-being and health.

Food and eating habits that have become “normal” today are actually not what is good for most of us. Food low in nutritional value or simply the wrong food choices can disrupt your body’s natural self-regulation and result in ill health.

Metabolic Balance focuses solely on metabolic health – when you address the cause and restore balance to the body, natural healing and health can happen.

Metabolic Balance is a comprehensive nutrition concept based on individual support alongside the creation of an personalized nutrition plan.

Our plans show which foods you should eat to provide the right nutrients you need; in what quantities these foods should be eaten; what combination of foods are best for you; when and how to consume these foods and how to maintain your new eating habits for long term sustainable success.

Let us help you be your best self and reach a place of optimal health and wellness!
