Sunflower Seeds

The sunflower seed, as the name implies, is the seed of the beautiful, yellow sunflower. The actual seeds are encased by a thick black and white shell and are known for their nutty flavor. Sunflower seeds have many different uses, they can be eaten raw, roasted, made into seaaed butter, or used to make sunflower oil. In terms of nutritional benefits, sunflower seeds are great source of healthy fats containing both polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats and are a source of antioxidants. In the kitchen, this seed is extremely versatile! It can be used to top salads, used to make a mandelade, added to oatmeal, or to top avocado toast.

Power Couple

“Metabolic Balance has helped my husband and I regain a healthier lifestyle. With more energy and confidence within ourselves. Why wouldn’t you change something so simple and something we do every day!” – Samantha C

How powerful is that?
We often hear about couples getting different results on the same diet or training program… One person will get results, whereas the other doesn’t. That often in part due to the fact that these programs are the same for every person. However, here at Metabolic Balance we do thinks differently. Your nutrition is customized and completely unique to YOU… But it doesn’t mean you can’t do it at the same time as your partner. Couples getting well together, what’s better than that?!

Metabolic Balance Study

The Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism published a study that showed that the Metabolic Balance program is an extremely effective weight loss program.
The study was carried out in conjunction with the Department of Quality Management and Social Medicine of the Medical Centre of the Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg, Germany. The results of the study clearly show that with Metabolic Balance, overweight people can effectively reduce their weight and maintain the weight loss in the long term.

Metabolic Balance Program

One of the Metabolic Balance rules is to eat only three meals daily, which can be daunting for many of our clients at first.

But the truth is that Metabolic Balance clients do not feel hungry because, since the beginning of the program, we have been looking for hormonal regulation, even reducing the effect of having a lot of desire for sweets.

During the Metabolic Balance Program, the changes happen progressively – according to each phase of the program. And in addition, the support and check-ins with your coach helps you to overcome any challenge.

Stuffed Peppers

With the start of the New Year many of us are looking to improve our eating habits and this healthy recipe is perfect to incorporate into your weekly meal rotation. This recipe for stuffed peppers that we’re showcasing today is perfect for phases 3 &4 and comes from Dr Michaela Stein, CEO of Metabolic Balance Romania:

Ingredients:

2 medium green peppers

500g ground beef

1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce, divided

1/4 cup uncooked instant rice

3 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese, divided

1 tablespoon chopped onion

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 large egg, beaten

Steps:

1:  Cut tops off peppers and remove seeds. Blanch peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes, drain and rinse in cold water then set aside.

2: Combine the beef, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, rice, cheese, onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and egg, and mix well. Stuff the peppers and place in an ungreased baking dish. Pour the remaining tomato sauce over the peppers. Cover and bake at 350°F for 45-60 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and peppers are tender.

3: Sprinkle with remaining cheese; return to the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Enjoy!

Zinc

The trace element zinc is strongly involved in metabolism. It supports wound healing, promotes vision in combination with vitamin A, controls hormonal balance, promotes regeneration of skin and hair, supports the pancreas in the production of insulin and finally, zinc strengthens the immune system by performing important functions in the production of defense cells. Zinc deficiency can be prevented by including more often red meat, seafood, dairy products, wheat germ, oatmeal, Brazil nuts, mushrooms and lentils in the diet.

Inclusion Not Exclusion

We all know that the more food has been processed and laden with additives & preservatives, the more it negatively impacts your health & well-being. We at Metabolic Balance are dedicated to promoting a proper understanding of the true healing power of fresh, whole and natural foods, which contain all the essential nutrients to fully support physical and mental health if eaten in the right quantities and at the correct times. Metabolic Balance does not exclude any food group and instead creates a personalized nutrition program for each client. Have you ever been afraid to make a personalized meal plan because you didn’t know what you were going to eat or afraid of being too little food? Well you do not have to worry about that with Metabolic Balance. Check out website and connect with one of our coaches to learn more or get started!

Healthy Habits

Research shows us that, typically, most diets don’t work. Why? Because the main focus is on restricting what you eat.

Most weight loss approaches center on dieting – the idea of limiting when and what we eat. In practice, it hardly ever works. And when it does work, it usually only lasts for a short period before we put the weight back on as we return to old habits. 

A nutrition plan centered on restrictions may also deprive us of necessary nutrients, which may leave us feeling fatigued.

The truth is, creating long-term healthy eating habits is the most effective method to break this dieting cycle, and this is the major focus at Metabolic Balance. Book a discovery call with your nearest Metabolic Balance coach to learn more!
