Metabolic Balance® personalized nutrition food plan
Reset your Metabolism
The Metabolic Balance® program is an advanced nutrition system founded by Dr. Wolf Funfack, M.D. It originates from Germany and was launched in 2002. Today, Metabolic Balance® has become a global company which is present in more than 35 countries.
The strength of Metabolic Balance® program is with the personalized nutrition recommendations that are based on the individuals’ blood test, health profile and eating preferences.
Blood results tells us exactly which foods are good and those that are not when we prepare the individual nutrition plans.
This increases the likelihood of specific nutritional needs being met, which may not occur when following a standard diet plan.
The Metabolic Balance® individualized food plan is a balance of carbohydrates, fats, proteins and water. Its a sustainable lifestyle; based on eating clean, conscious, whole nutritious foods that can be found at your local grocery store.
The goal of Metabolic Balance® nutrition program is to supply the body with all the vital nutrients it needs so it can produce the hormones and enzymes that are necessary for a healthy metabolism, so that you feel energized and don’t feel hungry between meals. The program involves a holistic approach that balances your metabolism so that you can achieve and maintain your ideal body weight and feel healthier overall.
The Metabolic Balance® individualized food plan helps to restore healthy insulin metabolism.
Carbohydrates breakdown into glucose, which is a type of sugar, before it
enters the bloodstream. Glucose is also known as blood glucose or blood
sugar and is the main source of fuel for the human body.
The pancreas releases insulin from the beta cells into the bloodstream to
move glucose from the blood into the cells, where it can be used for storage
and as energy. Insulin stimulates the liver to store glucose in the form of
Insulin resistance develops when the cells in the muscles, liver and fat resist glucose from entering the insulin receptor sites. This resistance causes cell starvation, as glucose backs up outside of the cells gate and spills into the blood, putting a demand on the body to produce more and more insulin and this vicious cycle continues. Insulin resistance is found in type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, PCOS and infertility.
The Metabolic Balance® individualized food plan aims at lowering insulin levels, which results in stabilized blood sugar levels, balanced hormones and fat loss.
