We are all different. Our bodies are unique. Some lucky people can eat anything they like and stay skinny. Many others can’t. If you are in the second group, just like I was personally, you may find it difficult to lose weight and maintain the weight loss. Metabolic Balance was the first weight loss programme I ever felt happy to offer to my clients. Because unlike so many other diets, it is personalised to fit your unique metabolic make up. It is also nutritionally sound, so you are not sacrificing other areas of your health for weight management.
What is Metabolic Balance?
Metabolic Balance is all about learning to eat in a healthy way, for the rest of your life. It is NOT a calorie counting diet where you will constantly feel hungry. You will be eating normal natural foods in a way that will not only help you control your weight, but also give you more energy and improve many other aspects of your health too.
Metabolic Balance is a nutritional programme for healthy weight management. It has been developed in Germany by doctors and nutrition scientists. Based on detailed health information and blood tests you will discover the ideal food combinations and quantities from all major food groups that will help re-boot your metabolism and help you lose weight.
Is it scientifically proven?
In 2010, a year long scientific study was concluded on the Metabolic Balance programme and was published in the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism. The study revealed that participation in the nutrition programme led to significant long-term improvements in health status and HRQOL (Health Related Quality of Life).
How does it work in practice?
Although the detailed contents of your plan will be unique to you, every Metabolic Balance plan is structured according to 4 core stages.
You will be working together with me, your nutritionist and coach, throughout these stages:
Phase 1: Gentle 2 day cleansing that will prepare your body for the plan
Phase 2: The exciting part of the programme where you will already start seeing results in terms of weight loss and improved health. You will follow your personalised eating plan whilst your metabolism is trained and optimised for peak performance. This phase lasts 14 days.
Phase 3: New foods are added to your plan to broaden your choices. A weekly “cheat” meal will also give you added flexibility. You will stay on Phase 3 until you reach your target weight, so the length of this phase varies from person to person.
Phase 4: Once you are happy with your weight loss goals as well as your health goals, you will enter the final phase of the plan - the rest of your life! By now you will have a much better understanding and ability to make food choices that help you maintain your weight and help you feel healthier and more energised. I will work with you to take the diet to the next level – a healthy way of life.
"I decided to try Metabolic Balance diet with Sanna. She has been a great help though all of this, Sanna is extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and it really helps that she has been through the programme herself. She was great during the initial wobbles, and was really supportive throughout."
36 blood values provide precise information on your health, your metabolism and any deficiencies in key elements associated with metabolic dysfunction.
Your blood test results combined with your personal data forms the basis of your Metabolic Balance nutrition plan. It lists foods that match your nutritional requirements, giving your body the best possible metabolic balance.
We kick off with an initial one hour session once your plan is ready, and make sure you have everything you need to get going. We will also check in with your general health and see if there are other areas that need support. I am, after all, a Nutritional Therapist!
You will have six further 30 minute sessions with me over the following three months. We'll use these sessions to keep you motivated, trouble shoot any issues that may arise, and celebrate all the positive changes you'll start seeing.

I will get your own Tanita scales so that you can monitor your muscle mass and other key body measurements. Metabolic Balance is about overall body health, and that is not measured just in kilos or pounds lost. I want to make sure we focus more than that!
