What made you try Metabolic Balance®?
I began Metabolic Balance® when I kept putting on weight. At the end of 2011, I had acid reflux after each meal. My family doctor explained that, due to my weight, the acid in my stomach was being forced upwards and prescribed me medication against it. Straight after the appointment, I still couldn't believe, that at 26, I needed to take medicine for a condition caused by being overweight. To this day, I have not used the prescription and decided instead to to change my life. I became aware of Metabolic Balance® through my colleague. I then researched it on the internet and searched for a coach. Next, I quickly made an appointment.
How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?
Psychologically, I felt terrible. I became withdrawn and had lost my positive attitude towards life. This negative energy spread all around me. As I was already suffering from the consequences of being overweight, as described above, I knew it was time to change. On top of it all, I now also had high blood pressure.
Why Metabolic Balance®?
The thing that convinced me was the supervised nutrition plan. I had been looking for a specific plan to tell me how to eat properly for years, as well as a coach to support me through it. I was convinced that if you want to lose a lot of weight, you cannot do it alone. Or at least I couldn't do it on my own. Although Metabolic Balance® seemed quite expensive at first, it is a lifetime investment that more than pays for itself. My conscience also helped me through. When I thought about how much I had spent, I knew that I had to see it through.
How did you find the programme?
Initially it felt like like a detox. I was freezing cold and my skin was itching. I had to study the food list and work out where to find all the foods. Thankfully I got used to it quickly. Some people around me didn't understand why I was doing it, but there were also many who offered positive words of support. I pushed through Phase 1 and 2. In Phase 3, I had a few set-backs, but now I just follow the basic principles of Metabolic Balance® and still eat the foods from my plan. I felt the success immediately, and after 2 months I had already lost my first 10 kg. The rest of the weight just carried on dropping off.
What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?
The biggest change for me was not gaining the weight back again! Before, I just used to watch the scales going up, no matter what I ate. Even after a long vacation, I can till manage to maintain my weight. This is my biggest success. I also just want to move around more and try out different sports. When you eat like this you have a yearning to be more active.
