Inside scoop: Here’s exactly how the Metabolic Balance® Diet will get you long-term results.
Just think about it.
What’s the first thing that you do when you think that something is wrong with your body?
You most likely go to the doctor.
And when you do go, they usually recommend bloodwork to make sure your blood markers are within normal ranges.
Fatigue, lack of motivation or concentration, weight loss, weight gain, dizziness, aches and pains… the symptoms can be vast, so the first response to unexplained symptoms by most medical professionals is bloodwork.
Now, imagine instead of the doctor just prescribing NSAIDs or Beta blockers in response to your bloodwork, they decided to dive a little deeper.
For example, they took a lifestyle and dietary intake form, a complete medical history and mapped out changes that you could make within your lifestyle, as well as mapped out the foods that suit your specific biological needs.
Imagine you received a personalized health plan that could help to orchestrate the biochemical changes needed to help you lose weight and feel amazing, and that this plan knew exactly what you needed because it knew you from the inside out.
Well, that’s exactly what Metabolic Balance® diet is, and why it gets results every time.
WHAT IS THE METABOLIC BALANCE® DIET & IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
The Metabolic Balance® diet is a personalized nutrition plan tailored to your own individual needs based on your bloodwork, and biomarkers from thirty-four different analyses. The results are combined with your entire health profile including height, weight, measurements, diseases, food allergies, medications and food likes/dislikes and tailored specifically to who you are and what you need.
The plan is completely doctor mediated and scientifically personalized.
People following the Metabolic Balance® diet have seen improvements in:
- Extreme fatigue
- High blood pressure
- Insulin resistance
- Hormonal issues (PCOS, Endometriosis, pre & post-menopausal symptoms)
- Struggle with sleep
- Struggle with inflammation, aches and pains
- Digestive issues like bloating, constipation or diarrhea
- Struggle with infertility
- Extreme food cravings or binge eating
- Allergies and skin disorders
- Liver and gallbladder issues
The Metabolic Balance® diet tackles these issues by examining you blood work markers, health history, food preferences and your weight and measurements.
Every single plan has been developed by a doctor and nutritional therapists to be unique, and every person’s requirements have been tailored to their individual markers.
Making it completely scientifically personalized.
For example, here’s what the Metabolic Balance® diet science is saying:
In a 2010, observational study funded by Metabolic Balance® with follow up after 1, 3, 6, and 12 months found that the Metabolic Balance® diet program resulted in long-term improvements in health status and most importantly health-related quality of life (HRQOL). It also ranked highly in adherence, because people liked the individually designed nutrition plans and found them easy to stick to.
HERE’S WHAT TO EXPECT WITH THE METABOLIC BALANCE® DIET
The Metabolic Balance® diet is a complete nutrition program that is backed by research and managed by physicians and nutritional scientists.
Food is not selected according to calorie content, or by percentage of fats, carbs and protein. The selection of foods and meals are based directly upon the effects of certain foods on hormones and nutrients that are missing in the body.
Through the program, a naturally balanced insulin production is promoted, which is the ‘internal key’ to the body’s weight management system. Not only is a healthy regulation of insulin a great way to lose weight and reduce cravings, but it also has a substantial effect on other hormonal and enzyme functions and production.
There is no calorie counting, point management, or percentage of fats, proteins and carbs.
The plan is based on the effects of certain foods on various hormones as well missing nutrients in the body. It is designed to help manage those insulin levels and regulate your own metabolism in order to lose weight in a more natural and sustainable way.
It’s an individualistic approach that helps your body ‘reset’ its own natural metabolism by teaching the body what foods make it feel the best, and what diet and lifestyle habits are leading to undesirable symptoms.
Once your body’s hormones are reset and balanced, your body will have a much easier time keeping weight off, managing stress, keeping your blood sugars balanced, managing cravings, managing blood pressure, increasing your energy and reducing your inflammatory markers.
You also get to design your own meal plans based on your dietary preferences.
THE METABOLIC BALANCE® 4 PHASE APPROACH INCLUDES:
Phase 1: Preparation Phase.
2-day gentle cleansing phase that prepares the body for a strict adjustment phase.
Phase 2: Strict Conversion Phase.
The 14-day (or more) strict conversion phase is managed by your individualized food list and the balance of whole foods, like protein, vegetables, starches and fruits.
This phase is not meant to be deprivation, but rather a diet in its traditional sense with wholesome foods that help to balance your hormones and enzymes.
Phase 3: Relaxed Conversion Phase.
This phase remains with the individual until they reach their key or healthy weight and their biomarkers return to normal levels. It involves the re-introduction of non-limiting foods.
Phase 4: Maintenance Phase.
This phase is just as important as phase 2 as it helps the client transition from the diet mentality to their new lifestyle. This involves food experimentation and moderation of foods as well as 8 general guidelines to make this healthy lifestyle stick for life.
“It is very rewarding to see many of our participants eliminate or reduce the need for medications such as cholesterol, blood pressure, depression and diabetes. We also have seen improved liver function in many of our participants. For this reason, we encourage all participants to maintain contact with their physician throughout the course of their program as meds may need to be adjusted. Participants also realize significant increases in their energy levels, feeling of well-being and sleep much better”. – Metabolic Balance®

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH THE METABOLIC BALANCE® DIET
Many of you know that both of us have recently come into health complications over the past couple years, Mirna with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Jenni’s postpartum anxiety and digestive symptoms peaking after having her kiddo.
The Metabolic Balance® diet may be directed to those looking to lose weight, but due to the individually catered results that are based on what our blood is saying, we decided to dive in and see what they are saying for us.
Make sure to stay tuned for the results and Jenni’s experience in Part 2.
