What made you try Metabolic Balance®?
Until the age of 25, I was able to eat and drink everything I wanted. I kept my weight relatively constant, between 85-90 kg. Then my job situation changed. I spent a lot of time in the car traveling, ate irregular meals and didn't have any time for sport. I started to gain between 5 and 7 kg a year. All attempts to lose weight in the long term failed.
How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?
My health was extremely worrying. I had severe hypertension, high sugar blood levels, depression, extreme bowel problems and insomnia. I looked like a Sumo-wrestler, just without the athletic ability.
Why Metabolic Balance®?
I had tried all kinds of diets from A–Z. Through an acquaintance, I met my coach Linda M. from Rüsselsheim in 2009. The blood test results, carried out in June 2009, showed catastrophic results: 90% out of all my blood values were out of range. 90 percent!
How did you find the programme?
I started with the Metabolic Balance® programme on 1. July 2009 with a weight of 157 kg. After just 5 months I weighed an incredible 102 kg. This was unbelievable! Despite my professional workload, I kept on losing weight and all of my blood values were soon back on track.
What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?
Nearly two years after starting with Metabolic Balance® programme, I was able to take part in a half marathon. I have also participated in several triathlons and I have run countless kilometers in preparation.
Today I weigh around 93 kg and have sensational blood values. I am still able to maintain my weight without difficulty, even though I am not keeping 100% to my plan. I just try to stick to most of the 8 principles.
