METABOLIC BALANCE®

METABOLIC BALANCE®

METABOLIC BALANCE®

On Monday the 2nd of September, a story aired on channel 7 news that I featured in. It discussed the German medical program, Metabolic Balance® program as an approach to truly personalised nutrition. You can find your closest practitioner trained in Metabolic Balance here.

Metabolic Balance® is a sustainable, food based, nutritional solution completely personalised to your blood results and your body.

There was a time when I was a frustrated practitioner, sifting through research to offer the best food based solutions to some of my more complex clients; including those with thyroid conditions, debilitating digestive complaints, hormonal problems and stubborn weight. Then I found Metabolic Balance®, completed my training in this program and am rewarded everyday because this program truly helps so many people gain back their health and happiness.

This program is food based. Spending hundreds of dollars on supplements each week is not sustainable.

This program is:

-personalised nutrition, based on comprehensive blood test results, your own health history and symptoms, your age, gender, medications and size.

-a solution to long term health; from start to end we work with you with the goal that you will never feel overwhelmed by what to eat again. You will know how to fuel your body for your absolute best health.

Metabolic Balance® is a German program, designed over 20 years ago. It was designed by and is still supported by a German medical team and nutritional scientists. each plan is completely unique. We, as Metabolic Balance® practitioners, work with head office in German to ensure each program is exactly right for you as an individual.  Here’s how the program works:

  • You attend a pathology lab for comprehensive blood tests, the results of which are used to formulate a nutritional plan precisely suited to your own body chemistry. This is completely unique to each individual – partners embarking on this journey together will receive distinctly different plans.
  • Using this food plan as a foundation, 4 specific phases are followed under the guidance of us.
  • You eat in harmony to your own body with the goal to completely rebalance your hormones, minimize inflammation and reset the metabolism.

For anyone who feels that they have tried every diet under the sun to attain health and find a healthy weight, Metabolic Balance® is for you. We also see remarkable improvements in autoimmune conditions, asthma and menopause management because it lowers inflammation so significantly.

  • The program takes 3-6 months in total and over this time hormones are balanced, chronic disease markers are improved, inflammation is lowered and weight is released. Its about health and weight management and long term change; yet another reason why we have so much belief in this program. Interested in a quick fix? This one is not for you. 

Many women with hormonal imbalances (e.g. PCOS / post menopause) struggle with their weight and their health. Metabolic Balance® is designed to balance these hormones therefore restoring health and releasing weight for life.

  • The program is a true partnership between practitioner and client. A minimum of 7 consultations are involved and its this support that enables long lasting success.
  • The program is a food only plan. There are no shakes and no meal replacement bars. It’s about true nutrigenomics – the ability of real, wholesome nutrition to have a positive influence on every cell in the body. This is true personalised nutrition.

Metabolic Balance® is not a quick fix. It does involve food preparation and learning how to eat for your own body. It is not based on any particular diet – it is truly just for you. It is sustainable and it may take time to reach your healthy weight but you will feel amazing on the journey because you are eating what is right… for you! It does involve embracing change, experiencing new tastes and gaining a new lease on life. It is about partnering with a coach and feeling supported. Its about creating a lifestyle and enjoying a new physically and mentally healthy version of you.

Again, whilst we use this program to help many lose weight and learn how to keep it off for life, it is equally effective for addressing debilitating symptoms including:

-Debilitating fatigue, stubborn skin issues, joint and muscle pain; these are commonly seen in conditions that are autoimmune in nature and medication may only help to an extent.

-Highly reactive guts that seem to inflame with almost every meal crushing one’s quality of life.

Consider that if you can get exactly the right food into your body everything may improve from the top of your head to the tips of your toes.

The latest research tells us that how we respond to foods is completely individual. Even identical twins may respond differently to the same foods.

I’ve known Katie for a number of years now with my husband initially consulting her for help with diabetes management for cycling. She made a huge difference to his health. I did Metabolic Balance® last year with Katie and lost 15 kg ( now a size 10). I did it for health reasons not just for weight loss and I feel wonderful. I have reduced medication I was on and have more energy and a calm stomach for the first time in many years. Katie is a wonderful support person and has so much knowledge that sometimes it’s hard to keep up!! I have referred a number of people to her and she has helped them all. She is a superstar in my eyes. Janis D Feb 2019

“Within the first month of MB I noticed changes, I had started to lose weight, but more importantly I began to feel good about myself again. Doing the MB program has taught me so much, I no longer deprive my body of food to lose weight, or view exercise as something I ‘have’ to do. I now have a healthy relationship with food where I view it as something that fuels and nourishes my body. And I have learnt to appreciate exercise and working out, I am so lucky that I am able to work out! My only regret is that I didn’t contact Katie sooner and start my Metabolic Balance® journey earlier!” Katherine (thanks for sharing your story)

Our Thoughts on Weight Loss PLUS All About ‘Metabolic Balance®’

February 13, 2018

Katie King and Jessica Cheney

What’s a bet that when you think of a nutritionist you think weight loss? It’s a major part of the work we do but guess what? It’s not something we EVER focus on, why? Because it’s often a symptom of underlying health issues not the cause.
In Episode 4 of The Nourished Wrap Podcast we discuss the many facets of weight loss, our thoughts around how it is portrayed in pop culture, what you can start doing today to make lasting changes and as a bonus, Katie takes us through Metabolic Balance® (MB). Metabolic Balance® is a food only, hormone balancing, weight release program backed by 25 years of research, designed originally by a German Doctor. As a qualified MB practitioner, Katie gives some incredible insight into weight loss for life. Research quoted in this episode can be viewed at these links:
-‘Program Adherence and Effectiveness of a Commercial Nutrition Program: The Metabolic Balance® Study’ available from: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3010672/

We don’t normally dive straight into a Metabolic Balance® program, there may be some work we do on your diet, mindful eating and lifestyle first. Start by booking an initial consultation here.
