The Metabolic Balance Nutrition Concept
Have you ever wished someone could just tell you what you should eat, and when, to get you feeling your best and take all the guesswork and trial-and-error out of all the confusing health & nutrition advice out there? That’s exactly what Metabolic Balance does!
Metabolic Balance is a personalised nutrition program, based on a comprehensive, customised food-based treatment plan.
This clear and simple plan shows:
- which foods you need to provide the right nutrients to bring your body and brain’s biochemistry back into balance
- the perfect portion sizes for you
- the correct timing of your meals
- how to maintain your new eating habits for long term success
“I was surprised at how quickly Metabolic Balance shifted my long-standing hormonal imbalance. Within two cycles I was finding my 10-14 days of PMDD had become 1-2 days of mild irritability, the insomnia drastically improved and my period even became lighter and less painful. My cycle is no longer ruling my life” – Tessa, Victoria
What is “Metabolism”
While we often think of metabolism as how quickly or slowly your body burns energy, it is really much more than that. Metabolism refers to the countless chemical processes going on continuously inside the body that allow life and normal functioning. Your metabolism never stops, even when your body is at rest. It constantly provides energy for basic body functions, such as:
- Circulating blood.
- Digesting food.
- Growing and repairing cells.
- Managing hormone levels.
- Regulating body temperature.
Focus on Wellbeing
While Metabolic Balance is well known as a weight management program, it’s really an overall wellbeing program, focussed on achieving your optimal health. Most participants also notice brighter moods, improved energy, better sleep, clearer thinking and better concentration, as well as reduction or even resolution of inflammatory heath conditions.
The reason I decided to qualify as a Metabolic Balance coach is that I noticed an immediate improvement in my mental health and hormonal moods within the first month of being on my plan. I want that for my clients too! It just makes life easier to have a trustworthy source tell you exactly what to eat, and when.
Each plan is unique, because it is created using:
- your blood values (encompassing 36 different parameters)
- your physical measurements
- your personal health goals
Metabolic Balance further adjusts your program to accommodate your needs and personal preferences, for example;
- food allergies or intolerance
- diagnosed health conditions
- prescription medications
- individual food likes and dislikes
Metabolic Balance is perfect for anyone who values their health and wants to learn the right foods they should eat.

A study published in the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism confirmed the effectiveness of Metabolic Balance as an overall wellbeing program. Participants in the study showed marked improvements in mental well-being and mental health already in the first month. Twelve months later, they still had strong feelings of positive change. During this period they also experienced improvements in physical well-being and levels of pain. Whereas about one third of the participants were satisfied with their general quality of life at the start of the programme, more than twice as many felt this way one year later.
“Healthy nutrition has a considerable influence on our moods. Certain nutrients are able to affect hormone metabolism when it becomes unbalanced in times of emotional distress. For example, increasing the body’s intake of the amino acid tryptophan can help to raise the serotonin level, which is often too low when a person is depressed.” (Dr Wolf Funfack, nutritional medicine specialist and founder of Metabolic Balance)
