Metabolic Balance, developed by Dr. Wolf Funfack (Metabolic Balance Germany), is a program to boost your health and wellbeing, increase your energy, restore your metabolism that enables you to efficiently and permanently lose weight.
The key is an individual Metabolic Balance nutrition plan. This is based on your own blood levels and further personal details and is therefore optimally tailored to your body.
The central idea is to provide the body with (missing) nutrients so that the metabolism (mainly the production of energy from food) can work perfectly again. This is the key to efficiently losing weight but also effectively combating tiredness or lack of energy.
By following the program, your metabolism is put optimally back on track and by transitioning to a healthy and balanced diet, a sustainable weight reduction is achieved.
Metabolic Balance Nutrition Plan
Your personal Metabolic Balance nutrition plan consists essentially of these elements:
There are 3 meal suggestions for each meal time (breakfast, lunch and dinner). The suggestions can be freely combined (providing certain rules are adhered to). The suggestions will then be “filled’’ with foods from the personalized food list.
Personal Food List
Your personal food list contains the foods which are best suited for getting your metabolism working perfectly again. Furthermore, all possible health problems and your food preferences (e.g. no fish, pork, vegetarian, etc.) are taken into account.
The 4 Phases
|To prepare the body for its nutritional adjustment. Detox.
|STRICT CONVERSION PHASE
|Not less than 14 days
|Weight loss. Regulation of metabolism. Learning new habits.
|RELAXED CONVERSION PHASE
|Dependent on situation
|Guidelines are slowly relaxed in a controlled manner. Stabilisation of metabolism. Avoidance of yo-yo effect. Target weight reached.
|Coping in everyday life. Permanently maintaining the target weight or achieved level of well-being. All foods are permitted again. It is more a question of the amount or how often you eat certain things. You should now know what is good for you and what is not.
The 8 Rules
During the program, you should abide by 8 rules, specifically designed to optimize fat burning (regulation of insulin levels).
- Eat exactly three meals a day.
- Between meals you should leave a break of at least five hours.
- Each meal should not last longer then one hour.
- You should have finished your last meal before 09:00 p.m.
- Always begin each meal with one or two bites of protein to have a long-lasting effect on your insulin levels.
- Eat only one type of protein per meal. For each of your three meals choose a protein from a different protein group so that you are eating three different protein groups every day.
- Drink the amount of water calculated for you (in general: a minimum of 35 ml of water per kilogram of body weight).
- There is an old English proverb which says: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” In addition to being both cholesterol- and uric acid lowering, no other fruit displays the same amounts of vitamins and minerals as the apple.
What Am I Still Allowed To Eat?
Your new “personal" diet is completely balanced and contains lots of protein (poultry, meat, fish, pulses, etc.), lots of vegetables and fruit, a smaller amount but the right sort of carbohydrates (e.g. ryebread).
Aversions to certain foods (e.g. no fish) are of course taken into consideration. It is also not a problem to follow the program as a vegetarian who eats dairy products and/or eggs - we simply create your nutrition plan accordingly. (The program is not suitable for vegans.)
Having achieved your target weight, foods, which were "forbidden" during the program are slowly reintroduced. Why should you have to permanently go without a piece of chocolate? After all, this can also effect quality of life. It is more a question of amounts and how often you eat certain foods which may cause you to gain weight.
The aim of this nutritional program is to prepare you for exactly this moment. You should learn to realise when it is enough for your body. Certain rules and strategies, that you will become familiar with in this program, will continue to be instrumental in helping you maintain your weight for the long-term.
Does Metabolic Balance Also Tell Me What Isn't Good For Me?
Metabolic Balance is formulated positively and tells you which foods, at the moment, are the most beneficial to make your metabolism run optimally again.
It is not a food intolerance or allergy test so intolerances or what you may even be allergic to, will not be investigated. For this there are highly specific tests, which we also offer. These are independent from Metabolic Balance.
How Does It Improve My Health?
The program does not just bring your weight into balance but your whole body. By permanently transitioning to a healthy and balanced diet and exercising sufficiently, you prevent known lifestyle diseases. The diet is exactly matched to your body and your particular needs. It promotes your performance and concentration levels, promotes better sleep and, last but not least, strengthens your mind: you feed yourself happy and healthy so to speak.
Frequently, after a period of time, our clients are able to reduce or completely stop taking medication (e.g. cholesterol lowering drugs).
You do not necessarily need to want to lose weight. People who suffer from chronic tiredness or lack of energy can also benefit greatly from this program.
Metabolic Balance is also ideal for weight loss during menopause (German).
