The Nutritional Concept

Metabolic Balance® is an integrated nutritional approach that is based on intensive support alongside an individual nutrition plan.
The clear and simply constructed plan will show:

  • which foods should be eaten and which should be avoided
  • in what quantities foods should be eaten
  • in which combination foods should be eaten
  • when and how these foods should be eaten
  • how the 4 phases will become a new way of life

Each plan is unique and exists only once. This is because of the way the plans are created using:

  • blood values,
  • personal measurements
  • personal details of the client.

With this information, Metabolic Balance® can provide a plan that is tailored to the exact needs of the client and can even include information regarding:

  • allergies,
  • illnesses, and
  • individual preferences or dislikes.

This offers a great opportunity to the growing number of people, who are already following a restricted diet – but also, for those who simply value their health.

Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder caused by an excessive amount of blood sugar over a prolonged period of time either due to Insulin resistance or Insulin Insufficiency.

How Metabolic Balance can help

Diet has a crucial role to play in managing diabetes and associated conditions. A balanced three-meal pattern along with a comprehensive understanding of the Metabolic Balance program rules can help Diabetics manage their blood sugar levels and weight in a sustainable way. Metabolic Balance can aid in optimizing insulin levels in the system and also decrease hunger levels and symptoms of hypoglycemia in Diabetics. The complex grains such as rye along with protein and fats at each meal ensure that the glycemic load of the food is low and will not cause sugar spikes or dips. The Metabolic Balance program has helped diabetics to reduce their medication and balance nutrient deficiencies by carefully selecting foods that are optimally matched to their needs. This also helps to avoid complications related to diabetes.

The correct choices of protein that match your body system combined with the right proportions of proteins, complex carbohydrates, and fats help to balance the blood sugar levels and manage insulin production in the body. Gradually, a person with the three balanced meals of the Metabolic Balance program and regular physical activity is able to manage the fasting blood sugar and reverse the signs of pre-diabetes.

Insulin Resistance

Insulin is a hormone produced by the Pancreas which is critical for the body’s use of glucose as energy. Insulin resistance (IR) is a condition in which the body’s cells become resistant to the effects of insulin. That is, the normal response to a given amount of insulin is reduced. Individuals with Metabolic Syndrome often have Insulin resistance. It can also lead to other metabolic conditions like Abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, PCOS in women, and Type 2 Diabetes. The physiological symptoms of Insulin resistance include the appearance of velvety dark patches and thickening of the skin and raised skin tags around the neck, armpits, and groin area. If you notice any of these signs, make sure to correct your diet and meet your doctor.

How MB can help

Chronic inflammation and excess weight can lead to insulin resistance which can be the starting point of Type 2 Diabetes. Metabolic Balance diet can help fix the early signs and symptoms of Diabetes and insulin resistance. With an 8-10% reduction in body weight and waist circumference, one can keep the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes at bay. The increase in insulin sensitivity also helps to restore the basic complexion in the darkened skin areas such as the back of the neck, armpits, etc. It even helps resolve skin pigmentation which happened due to the insulin fluctuations in the body.

Bone health (Osteoporosis, Osteopenia)

Osteoporosis is defined as a systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, with a consequent increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fracture. Osteopenia is a condition in which the bone mineral density is lower than normal. Osteopenia can progress to Osteoporosis if preventive steps are not taken.
