Prevention Starts in the Supermarket

Metabolic Balance has known for many years: If you want to eat healthy and to reduce your sugar consumption to a healthy level, you must first change your shopping habits and then your eating habits. This is the only way to successfully counteract nutrition-related diseases such as diabetes. This is very easy with a Metabolic Balance nutrition plan, because it tells you exactly what you are allowed to eat and in what amounts, thus keeping your insulin level constant.

Sugar and Cholesterol

Did you know that sugar can raise cholesterol?
We often think of saturated fat as the main reasons for elevated cholesterol but actually sugar can also play a crucial role.

When we eat sugar (including fruit, ‘natural’ sugars such as honey and maple syrup, and refined carbohydrates) any excess is stored in the liver. Here, it is converted into fat molecules including VLDL cholesterol. This VLDL is then carried around the body, where it can cause plaques in arteries. This in contrast to HDL which absorbs cholesterol and carries it from the tissues back to the liver.

Metabolic Balance® is a personalized nutrition plan which limits sugars of all types. Using results from your blood test and health history, we provide you with a customized food list for your body. Find out more about how Metabolic Balance can help achieve your health goals !

Diabetes

With World Diabetes Day approaching we wanted to share a little bit of information about common metabolic disorders such as diabetes.

Around 1 in 11 adults suffer from diabetes globally and this number continues to rise. There are three main types of diabetes: Type 1 (insulin dependent), Type 2 (insulin resistant), and gestational diabetes. Around the world, Type 2 is most common form and results from the body becoming resistant to insulin or not being able to produce enough insulin.

Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas which allows cells in the body to take up glucose. If the body is lacking insulin, cells are unable to take up glucose and levels remain high in the body. Uncontrolled glucose levels can have dangerous health effects.

One of the best ways to control your blood sugar and glucose levels is via a healthy diet and exercise!

Metabolic Balance Nutrition

In order to create a custom and personalized meal plan for you, we need your blood results. You might be wondering why that is!

Well, your blood test results together with your personal information, such as body measurements and food preferences, is the vital information that we need to create a Metabolic Balance nutrition plan that is custom for YOU! Rather than a cookie cutter meal plan that is the same for everyone, we tailor what you eat to your body and lifestyle!

It is only when we know all this information that we can select the right foods which will match your nutritional and metabolic needs. In this way, your food can optimally support and balance your metabolism and you can reach your health goals!

Cheese and Metabolic Balance

Did you know that cheese is found on many personalized Metabolic Balance nutrition plans? Cheese can be an excellent source of protein and has been shown to support weight loss as it helps regulate our weight and fat levels1. This is in part because it helps us feel ‘full’ and satiated so that we don’t reach for more food. Research has also shown that the balance of fat and calcium can help reduce the amount of saturated fat absorbed by the gut2. At Metabolic Balance® we understand the scientific power of real food, and use science to create custom and personalized meal plans for all of our customers. So, enjoy the cheeses on your plan, knowing they are providing a balanced range of nutrients to help reset you body, and help you feel your best!
