Start A New Lifestyle

Start a New Lifestyle, Not a Diet!
As we near the end of 2022, many people are reflecting on their past year and for some of us that means making decisions about our lifestyle and diet. If you eat a healthy diet then you don’t need more of those countless diets. Those extra pounds disappear along the way, and your body becomes more toned and defined. Dietary frustration and the dreaded yo-yo effect are things of the past. The nagging thoughts of how to lose weight can finally be put at ease. The Metabolic Balance plan will help you with all of this! Rather than a diet, this plan is a lifestyle that can help you lose weight and maintain that weight loss! Start the new year with a new mindset and lifestyle by giving one of our Metabolic Balance coaches a call.

Cholesterol

Our diets affect our cholesterol levels and can help lower our risk of developing diseases. It’s important to point out that cholesterol is not always the bad guy though. We all need cholesterol to be healthy as it is the vital building block for our metabolism, cells and hormones. But of course it needs to be balanced. Balance is everything when you are talking about cholesterol!

The Heart Foundation advises following a heart-healthy eating pattern, which involves consuming a mix of fresh, minimally processed meals while reducing highly processed items like takeout meals, baked goods, chocolate, chips, and sugary drinks. Not only can you maintain an interesting and healthy diet, but following that advice will also give your body the nutrients it needs.

A heart-healthy eating pattern includes:

➡️ Plenty of vegetables, fruit, and whole grains

➡️ A variety of healthy protein-rich foods (especially fish and seafood), legumes (such as beans and lentils), nuts and seeds 

➡️ Unsweetened milk, yoghurt, and cheese in the healthy amounts. 

➡️ Healthy fats and oils. Choose nuts, seeds, avocados, olives, and their oils for cooking

➡️ Herbs and spices to flavour foods, rather than adding salt

Pay attention to how much you are eating as well! Portion sizes have grown over the last 50 years, and nowadays many of us eat more than we need – which raises cholesterol and increases the risk of heart disease.

Talk to your local Metabolic Balance coach about how changing your lifestyle can balance your cholesterol.

Personalized Nutrition

“Personalized nutrition” has definitely become a buzz phrase, but not necessarily one that is completely understood. The science might be complicated, but the concept in relation to what we do here at Metabolic Balance is very straightforward: we use your blood test results and your medical history to determine precisely which nutrients are required to restore your body’s healthy balance.  At Metabolic Balance, we turn the most recent findings in nutritional research into an easy-to-follow action plan. You will receive a customized food list, specific serving sizes, and meal suggestions, along with ongoing coaching support to guide you through the process. Even though each food list is unique, the foods are based on commonly found items – you won’t be left searching for a rare powder, odd drink, or pricey supplement! Get in touch to learn more about how a Metabolic Balance® plan with personalized nutrition can help you reach your health goals.

Nutrition and Mental Health

Keeping a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and keeping an eye on your alcohol and caffeine intake is very important for everyone. The importance of this is even greater for people with mental health challenges because:

– It is possible that eating and drinking healthily can improve some symptoms of disorders like anxiety and depression.
– A poor diet and unhealthy drinking habits may exacerbate poor mental health.
– Medications used to treat certain disorders may interact with foods, caffeine, and alcohol.
-Diet may have a negative effect on mental health for a variety of reasons, including changes in blood glucose levels (sugar), inflammation, or effects on microbes living in the gut (called the microbiome).
– Additionally, eating well prevents some chronic diseases like diabetes, which also affect mental health.
A person’s weight can impact their mental health. Some medicines for mental illness also cause weight gain, which adds to the problem. It is possible to improve mental health by releasing weight through be
er nutrition and exercise.
These are just some examples of the role nutrition plays on mental health, but eating right comes down to each individual’s needs. Metabolic Balance® plans are completely personalized to help you target many aspects of your health – including your mental health. If you feel like you’re struggling, then your nutrition could be a great place to start…

Long Covid

Struggling with long Covid? Long Covid is essentially a post-infection condition that can linger for a long period of time after someone has tested negative – even years! While eating the right foods is not a cure for long Covid, diet and nutrition could play a key role in coping with it. Experts say there is still a lot to learn about long Covid, but nutrition plays a vital role: “Heart disease, certain cancers, stroke and type two diabetes … you can fight all of those diseases with a knife and a fork. That is empowering because you have control of what’s on your plate and what you eat.” – Dr Joan Salge Blake, Clinical Professor at Boston University. Here are some tips that could help reduce the effects of long Covid:

-Meals rich in veggies, fruits, nuts and whole grains
-Be aware of vitamin deficiencies
-Stay hydrated
-Steer clear of foods that worsen inflammation
