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!

Energy Rollercoaster

Do you ever feel like you’re on a rollercoaster with energy highs and lows? Periods where you have all the energy in the world but then crash where it feels like you don’t want to get off the couch. This is a common complaint amongst people with metabolic issues. It’s caused by changes in your blood sugar levels.

An Apple A Day

We have often heard the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Apples are nutrient-rich, known to lower uric acid as well as cholesterol. Especially older varieties of apples are rich in polyphenols, which counteract free radicals. Meaning, the naturally occurring flavonoids (phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables) carry out antioxidant action. Therefore, Metabolic Balance applies these impressive health benefits – we eat one apple a day – that’s one of our strategies of success. At Metabolic Balance we help people re-balance their metabolism and health. If you do not have a plan yet, get in contact with us – or one of our certified coaches. We are looking forward hearing from you!
