The Metabolic Balance program is a personalised nutrition system that devises a food list from an individual’s blood results, current medication, body measurements and food preferences.

Devising personalised meal plans and food lists is a genuinely complex and time-consuming task for practitioners. By introducing Metabolic Balance to your practice you have access to a scientifically validated method trusted by doctors and practitioners around the world to help resolve and improve the well-being of your clients. You are able to easily and quickly provide your clients with an individualised and effective food only program so they get excellent results.

Metabolic Balance was devised by Dr. Wolf Funfack and Sylvia Bürkle following over 20 years of research in Germany. The Metabolic Balance software program is based on the German national food database which is then tailored to each individual country.

The principles of Metabolic Balance were developed based on the findings of medical research studies, personal research, and Dr Funfack’s clinical experience. This complex program gets continually refined and adjusted to reflect current developments in nutritional science.

Today Metabolic Balance is widespread. It is available in over 30 countries around the world. That individuality covers the nutrition plans, the personal supervision, and the joy the participants experience when the success of Metabolic Balance begins to work for them.

There are numerous books (in English and German) outlining the program and a 2010 research paper.

Metabolic Balance is a strictly practitioner only program in Canada

All practitioners must have a minimum of an advanced diploma or preferably a degree in Naturopathy, Nutritional Medicine or Medicine. Other medical and natural therapy qualifications may be considered as appropriate and would be assessed on an individual basis.

All practitioners must have appropriate association membership and indemnity insurance.

As a Metabolic Balance practitioner, you have access to the online portal to generate the personalised menu plan and food list for your clients.

There is no software needed to be installed, managed or backed-up on your laptop. You simply need access to the internet.

Metabolic Balance is exclusively available from a certified practitioner. It includes the personalised food plan and 5 coaching consultations as a minimum - depending on the weight goal of the client. This support period can be extended as needed.

Metabolic Balance has a worldwide reputation that means clients regularly seek out and contact their nearest Coach to access the program.

It is a completely whole food program with no processed foods or supplements included. Clients receive a detailed list of their ideal protein sources, vegetables, and fruit. If a food is listed on their plan they can eat it, if it is not listed they can’t.

It is very easy for a client to follow given the right motivation and support. Clients must be willing to eat whole foods only (fresh vegetables, fruit, good sources of protein, healthy fats and starches) with no gimmicks or meal replacement products.

It requires commitment but once on the program, clients report that it's easy to follow. The quick results also ensure ongoing commitment.

There are no products/supplements associated with Metabolic Balance at all. It’s simply a highly personalised food list and menu plan.

Results for clients are dependent on adherence to the program and effective coaching and guidance from their personal Metabolic Balance Coach. Naturally there are no guarantees however individuals typically experience changes in their vitality, weight and well-being within the first week of commencing the program.

The program simply allows the body to get into balance and release weight naturally for long term results.

There is no expensive equipment or set up costs beyond a good set of scales, a stadiometer (height measure), a tape measure, access to the internet and a printer to print off your client’s plans.

Metabolic Balance may be offered to clients in personalised one-on-one sessions, online or in a group setting by a certified Coach.

As a Metabolic Balance practitioner in Canada, you have ongoing support to ensure you are completely confident in offering Metabolic Balance in your practice.

Further support is provided by access to ready-to-use marketing material including pull-up banners, posters, client leaflets and powerpoint presentations to educate and attract new clients.
