Today is World Obesity Day!

2020-03-04 World Obesity Day (1)Today is World Obesity Day – around the world there are events and initiatives taking place to highlight World Obesity Day by bringing awareness of the seriousness of obesity and to offer solutions, education and encouragement. We’d like to do a little bit of all three below.

Our Founders established Metabolic Balance® as a natural solution to combat the obesity epidemic and to prevent or reverse chronic disease such as the metabolic syndrome, CVD and diabetes. Today over 1 million individual nutrition plans have been developed and millions of pounds have been lost. Each participant is unique, so to optimize results a personalized nutrition plan is developed; and to increase adherence, each participant is guided by a personal Certified Metabolic Balance Coach, just as Inga shares in her story below.

“The Metabolic Balance program has been a success for me beyond anything I have experienced with diets I have tried before, and way beyond anything I expected. I’m 50 years old and I have been a yo-yo dieter since I was a teenager. I’ve always been overweight, but during the last 6 years my weight had risen to over 255 pounds. At this time, I have lost over 107 pounds, and am now near my target weight. I feel so much better about myself!   I have been very impressed with the help and support I have received from my Metabolic Balance Coach, whether my questions were directly related to my personal nutrition plan or to nutrition in general. I enjoy eating the foods prescribed on my personal plan and my cravings have virtually vanished. I am seldom hungry and enjoy eating real food again!”Inga W.

Our principles, such as the use of blood laboratory values, 3 meals a day, balanced micro-nutrients and intermittent eating have been taken into consideration and confirmed by reputable nutritional experts and well over 20 years of clinical and practical experience. The Metabolic Balance Team of nutrition and medical professionals have systems in place that considers each participant’s unique bio-individuality and nutritional needs; thus, ensuring that nutrient requirements are met and harmony is again restored naturally to the body by using real food. No shakes, supplements, or pills are used. Real food for real people as nature intended! Read what David has to say below.

“If you want to stop trying the one size fits all diets that don’t work or you gain all your weight back after you stop, then you need to look at Metabolic Balance. This is a lifestyle more than just a diet. I know exactly what I should eat and what I shouldn’t. No guessing. I have lost and kept off 60lbs for 4 years. I’m 3 weeks into losing another 40 lbs and so far, have lost 16 lbs. Additionally, I’m off the Diabetes meds which is huge! If you’re looking for long term value, good health, and permanent weight loss, you must look at this program. It’s a defined road map to good health backed by solid science.”   – David W.

How to Use Lentil- or Bean-Pasta?

We are often asked why we recommend lentil or bean pasta only in Phase 3, even if legumes are on the plan for Phase 2. 

We want to explain the reason: in order to make pasta from any legume, lentils or beans, the legumes have to be highly processed (soaked, boiled, dried and processed into flour). The lentil or bean pasta is cooked again when we prepare our meals. Because of this long and relatively complex process, a large part of the vitamins and minerals contained in the “alternative” pasta is naturally going to be lost. This is not ideal for Phase 2 (Strict Conversion). For the metabolic change and reaching health goals it is important – especially in the beginning – to eat and combine foods with optimal nutrients. Starting Phase 3 though, when the metabolism is stable and nicely balanced, we can have more leeway. With the Relaxed Conversion (Phase 3) lentil or bean pasta may be enjoyed.

Holiday Season – in Full Swing?

Today starts the second week of advent with two candles shining brightly on the Advent wreath. We’re now properly into the Christmas season and here’s an important question for those following their Metabolic Balance plan … How are you doing? Are you tempted by Holiday Parties, treats and drinks everywhere? Can you resist? Or is it hard for you to stick to your plan?

MB 12-08 - 2. Advent

At Metabolic Balance we recommend not be too strict during the Holiday Season. Yes, that’s right! We’re saying it’s okay to indulge a little every now and then! Just to be clear, though, we say stick to the Metabolic Balance rules and stay as close to the plan as possible – but also relax and enjoy the Holidays too. When you choose to have a sweet treat, it’s important to enjoy it in moderation of course and only once a week, if possible.

Remember, as soon as you can – go back to the Strategies of Success with Metabolic Balance – to reach your health goals and maintain your healthy life-style.

Have a happy and balanced Holiday Season! 

Strategies of Success!

People often ask us: am I allowed to eat less than is specified in my nutrition plan?

The answer is No!

MB 12-03 - Teller

The amounts of protein and carbohydrates specified in your plan is carefully calculated to create the right conditions to boost your metabolism aka “fire” in the body. This “fire” is essential – and only if the right amount is consumed the excess fat can be burnt. If a meal is skipped completely or not enough eaten, in simple terms there is no or only a small “fire” and so only a little or no fat can be “burnt”. It’s also important to note, when we metabolize proteins, amino acids are produced. These must be balanced by the right proportion of carbohydrates to make sure that they are properly cleared from the body and do not have any negative effects. Thus, as Rule 1 says: don’t eat more, don’t eat less and don’t eat anything that’s not listed on your personal food list.

Our 8 Rules are our Strategies of Success!

Meal Preparation & Clean Eating!

Meal prep and clean eating are easy with your Metabolic Balance plan. Simply pack your daily power lunch box with vegetables from your plan and one portion of protein. Plus an apple of course! Ready – Steady – Go!
