Up to 65% of the adult population in industrialized countries suffers from obesity and health disorders caused by improper nutrition.
metabolic balance offers you a solution to eat healthily, improve your metabolism and gently adjust your weight.
What is Metabolic Balance®?
Metabolic Balance® is an innovative all-natural nutrition program for weight management and well-being. It brings balance to your hormones, optimizes your health and leads to a new invigorating lifestyle resulting in successful long term weight management. It is backed by over 25 years of scientific study and is managed by dedicated physicians and nutritional scientists.
The foundation is a personal nutrition plan developed on the basis of an in-depth analysis of your unique blood values, medical history and personal likes and dislikes. It acts as your ‘road-map’, indicating exactly which natural foods you should eat in order to orchestrate the biochemical changes needed for reaching your desirable weight and health goals. It is tailored for you!
It is a 4-stage program that has all the elements you need to succeed in resolving your personal weight issues permanently as well as integrating optimum health and well-being into your life.
Why Metabolic Balance® works
Your individual nutrition plan balances your personal "body chemistry" with "food chemistry". You will not only eat all the essential and vital nutrients found in fresh wholesome foods, your plan will also concentrate particularly on the nutrients, vitamins and minerals your body needs to re-balance your metabolism.
Metabolic Balance® is 100% natural. There are no prescribed injections, pills, shakes or proprietary foods. Nor, as with some diets, are you required to keep ‘points’ or count calories.
Promoting healthy metabolism
With your individual nutrition plan you supply your body with all the vital and healthy nutrients it needs. Food is not selected according to calorie content or percentage of fat, protein and carbohydrates. The only selection criteria are the effect of the specific foods on your hormonal system.
Therefore, you promote healthy metabolism and natural insulin secretion. With the help of new and simple rules for preparing food and establishing a new dietary regime you achieve long term and on-going weight management and hormonal balance.
You will achieve the transformation and rejuvenation of your body to a healthy and balanced state, particularly in combination with appropriate exercise, which will assist in preventing common ailments in the long-term.
By restoring nutritional balance you recreate your body's natural equilibrium. Simultaneously, you promote a fitter, more energetic you, that has regained control and able to manage the negative effects of the stresses of modern day life. You will find that you sleep better and your physical and psychological well-being will improve. You will feel healthier, happier and more vital it is visible to all! You shed body fat, yet your muscles and connective tissues are protected, which means your skin remains taut and smooth.
By balancing your nutrition, you cause a natural restoration in your body to occur. By restoring nutritional balance you recreate your body’s natural equilibrium.

Metabolic Program Procedure
With your initial consultation your physical measurements are assessed and taken, a detailed questionnaire on your current state of health is filled out and problems you might be experiencing are discussed.
Blood samples are taken and analysed*.
The questionnaire and test results are sent to Germany to be analysed and your own individual Metabolic nutritional plan is established.
At this point you will be contacted to make a second appointment.
During the 2nd appointment you will receive your personalized Metabolic Balance Program. This will be your future ‘road map’ of nutrition.
A final 4 week follow-up appointment will enable you to post any questions and help you on your way to become a healthy individual.
* Please Note: These blood tests are covered by Medical Aid.
4 Easy Steps:
Phase 1: Preparation Phase
Duration: 2 Days
The Preparation Phase could also be named Detox Phase as it enables your body to do just that. Your body is gently prepared for the dietary changes with light foods and colon cleansing.
Strict Adjustment Phase
Duration: minimum of 14 days (Metabolic adjustment and regulation)
Depending on the initial outset status of your body, this phase is minimally 2 weeks long. It specifically targets your body’s deficiencies and re-balances your body.
Your metabolism adjusts in response to your new nutritional regime and you are also likely to experience a more positive mental outlook. You will begin to feel the benefits and health improvements.
It is necessary to set aside a specific time to enjoy this period and avoid any social challenges. No heavy/ cardiovascular exercise during these 14 days. Instead, enjoy walking in fresh air, deep breathing and gentle movements to aid lymphatic drainage and detoxification.
Duration: Until your goal has been reached
The duration depends on your personal circumstances and your weight from the start of the Programme. Parameters such as your target weight or the amount of weight you wish to lose are taken into consideration during this time.
You continue with the given plan but are allowed to experiment. More freedom can now be enjoyed!
Phase 4: Maintenance Phase
Duration: The rest of your new, healthy life
At this point you have succeeded in optimising your nutrition and metabolism and as a result you have achieved your desired weight and improved health!
This phase is more or less the rest of your life, your healthy future. The ground rules have been set; the foundation for your sustained weight is laid. Integrating the Metabolic Balance® way of life into everyday life such as eating out or cooking for the family comes natural by now.
Your weight can be adjusted gently, solely by changing your nutrition without fasting, hunger, food supplements, pills or powders.
Lasting long term weight goal
Many other diets produce, after rapid weight loss, a renewed rapid weight gain. This well-known yo-yo effect has not been observed with the metabolic balance program. Once the nutrition has been re-balanced, the achieved weight goal can be maintained by the observance of some basic rules.
Vigor, Energy and Productivity
The nutritional change increases the general well-being of body and mind. It leads to a healthier appearance, increase in physical and psychological productivity, enhanced ability to focus and improved emotional balance.
The improved overall well-being can be experienced within several days of starting the programme. Fatigue and lack of energy after meals, as a result of improper nutrition, gives way to increased energy and vigor. Adequate exercise will further support the metabolic changes and results.
With metabolic balance, fat deposits are primarily reduced rather than muscle or connective tissue. Therefore undesirable wrinkles on the face and other body areas are of no concern, especially for women. The skin stays trim and beautiful.
