New Weight Loss and Hormonal Balance Program
‘Metabolic Balance’ is a hormone and metabolism re-balancing program, designed to reset your body’s metabolic functions. In a nutshell, it helps you use energy and burn fat at your body’s optimum level.
The program was developed by German nutritional medicine expert Dr Wolf Funfack and food scientist Silvia Bürkle, and is the result of 25 years of scientific research. After a detailed blood test, your results are sent to Germany, where your inflammatory markers, blood glucose levels, TSH thyroid results, and many other factors are analysed. A diet is then designed for you to regulate your hormone levels, particularly your insulin, and optimise your health.
So each Metabolic Balance diet plan is completely unique. An individual nutrition plan is provided which specifies healthy and varied meals, and an android app is available for assistance.
The program consists of 4 phases over 4 months to reset your body. It is based on sound scientific research, and the program is suitable for the vast majority of people but not for everyone. It is most beneficial for those who have excess fat that refuses to budge even after doing all the right things, or those with stubborn hormone problems. However, it is also great for those who just want to optimise their health and wellbeing.
We believe that the Program may well be
- the most scientific
- the most advanced
- and the most individually tailored
health and weight loss system available.
The Four Phases of the Program
• Phase 1. This phase begins the process of detoxification and elimination and is key in preparing your metabolism for the next phase. (Phase 1 lasts for 2 days.)
• Phase 2. For the first two weeks, you must eat only the foods specified in your personal nutrition plan. After that, the occasional treat meal will be reintroduced into your diet, which you can enjoy whatever you like. During this phase, your metabolism will slowly start to adjust and become more efficient.
• Phase 3. This is the relaxed-adjustment phase. During this phase, you can begin to bring in additional foods to your daily meal plan. With your body’s new and heightened sense of awareness, you should instinctively know which foods are right for you. You can also now enjoy an occasional treat meal or even a glass of wine. More important, you will learn how to take a healthy approach to special occasions. Your Metabolic Balance therapist will continue to support you and monitor your progress during this phase.
• Phase 4. The maintenance phase is the final phase. On the basis of your knowledge of and experience with the previous three phases, you may now experiment for yourself and get to know which foods are right for you. You can begin to slowly ease yourself away from the plan, while still following the nutrition advice you have learnt during the program. (Even at this stage, you will be able to remain in contact with your Metabolic Balance therapist.)
