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.)
Many clients have a hard time realizing they have gained weight or, that they have strayed too far from their metabolic balance plan. If you are a metabolic balancer and,
-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.
- Let your coach know that you are rebalancing and discuss with your coach the challenges you faced or are facing with eating the metabolic balance way.
- If it has been several years since you received your initial plan, ask your coach for an updated plan based on a new blood test to gauge your current health and nutritional status. (There is a charge for a new plan based on a new blood test.)
- Prepare your kitchen/home for phase 1 and 2. Eliminate any foods from your house which will derail you during those first few weeks.
- Lighten your schedule and try to keep the stress down while you are making this healthy change to your body and your lifestyle.
