Successful Weight Loss

We are often asked: Should I take my body measurements or is weighing better? 

Successful weight loss is so often better shown by the monitoring of body measurements than by regular weighing! This is due to the relatively high protein content in our nutrition plans which helps rebuild connective tissue and muscles in the body. Muscle weighs more than fat, but also has less volume, i. e. it takes up less space than fat. So if 20 lbs of fat was lost and 13 lbs muscle gained, only 7 lbs difference may be seen on the scale. But if we look at body measurements, we often see reductions of 4-6 inches which is 1-2 dress sizes!

Weighing Your Food

With Metabolic Balance program, in the initial phases foods are weighed so that every client eats exactly the amount that is optimal for his or her respective metabolism. In this way, the body receives the right concentration of nutrients it needs to get back into balance. Over the course of the program, clients slowly stop weighing their food, and instead rely on their intuition and hunger cues to portion out the right amount. This allows clients to learn to trust themselves and their body all while working to reset their metabolism.
