Don’t wait until the new year. If you have been on the metabolic balance plan for a year and have more weight to lose or have stopped following the plan and want to start your journey again, now is the time to start rebalancing.
What does it mean to rebalance? Rebalancing means going back to phase 1 & 2 of the plan so that you can reset your body and get back on track. (If you have been off the program for awhile, we suggest you get a new plan from your metabolic balance coach.)

-Your clothes or rings getting tighter;
-You have less energy;
-There a reduction in your well-being;
-You reached your alarm weight*;
A rebalancing should be done with the assistance of your coach. Because the focus of the metabolic balance plan is to help you have a healthy lifestyle, a rebalancing should be done no more than once a year. If you find that you need to do a rebalancing several times in a short period of time, you may have diet issues that need to be addressed by your coach.
*Alarm weight. Sylvia Egel uses an alarm weight with her clients as a warning that something is wrong. If a client reaches their alarm weight, they need to do a rebalancing to get things back on track.
