What is Metabolic Balance?

Metabolic Balance is a personalised nutrition programme based on blood test results and an in depth analysis of your lifestyle and medical history.   In other words, we all have a unique footprint when it comes to the way we eat and assimilate food. A “one-size-fits-all” approach simply doesn't work as we all have different needs.   Here at WeightMatters we offer Metabolic Balance with Sue camp our Nutritional Therapist, and Helen West our Dietician.   Metabolic Balance is a unique method to match your body chemistry to food chemistry. Your body will produce hormones and enzymes to break down the food and turn it into energy. Why does some food get transformed into fat? Which foods can you eat to feel more energised? These questions and more will be explained with coaching you get with the programme.   The Metabolic Balance programme only uses natural foods to provide you with all the necessary nutrients to help you either obtain or keep a healthy weight.   The plan ensures that your food cravings are reduced so that you don't feel deprived like in a normal diet. All the food suggestions are based on your own personal preferences and they are combined with lifestyle advice to allow you to stay healthy.   Metabolic Balance is based on eating three main meals a day (no supplements or meal replacements but only natural foods that you can buy in any supermarket) and it helps you avoid the traps of yo-yo dieting or crash diets.   The programme normally lasts three months. We can accommodate allergies, likes, dislikes, beliefs and health specific dietary requirements.   To book an appointment contact help@weightmatters.co.uk, or call 020 7622 7727.       Sources: http://www.metabolic-balance.com/us/home.aspx http://www.nutriberry.co.uk/Comersus/store/comersus_index.asp
