Weight management

As we enter menopause, we enter a state of inflammation, increasing insulin resistance and oxidative stress. Weight can suddenly become much harder to shift and this can lead to health problems. This is why it is so important to reduce insulin resistance and inflammation as soon as weight gain starts to become a problem.

We offer a programme called Metabolic Balance because, quite simply, it WORKS.  Metabolic Balance is a 3 month nutritional programme that re-sets hormones in order to reach a natural weight.

The “Study for evaluation of the metabolic balance®-programme”  looked at 851 patients and found that:

  • 90% of participants lost weight
  • The average weight loss was 7.2 kg at 1 year on
  • Metabolic markers (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL triglycerides and gamma GT) all improved during the programme
  • Significant improvements were reported by patients in the dimensions "mental condition”, “everyday life efficiency” and “pain”

The programme:

  1. You have a comprehensive blood test and body measurements are taken
  2. From your results, the correct parameters for proper metabolic and hormonal function are established
  3. You receive a personalised nutritional plan re-establishes your natural night time fat burning process (lipolysis) and kick starts your metabolism again.
  4. Over the next three months, you have 6 follow up appointments. Your body composition will be monitored. Assessing body fat percentage versus lean mass allows realistic weight loss goals to be set that focus on fat loss, not muscle loss.
  5. At the end of the programme, you have another blood test to reassess some of the parameters.
  6. Real food with no calorie counting the method gives sustained weight loss that lasts in time to a far greater degree than other popular regimes
  7. As a result of the improved metabolism, high blood pressure, cholesterol and inflammation often improve along with many other issues like insomnia, aching joints and anxiety
