What made you try Metabolic Balance®?
I began Metabolic Balance® when I kept putting on weight. At the end of 2011, I had acid reflux after every meal. My family doctor explained that because my weight, the acid in my stomach was being forced upward. The doctor prescribed some medication. Right after the appointment, I had a hard time realizing that at 26, I needed to take medicine for a condition caused by being overweight. To this day, I have not used the prescription, having decided instead to change my life. I became aware of Metabolic Balance® through a colleague. I researched it on the Internet and searched for a coach. Next, I quickly made an appointment.
How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?
Psychologically, I felt terrible. I had become withdrawn and lost my positive attitude toward life. That negative energy spread all around me. As I was already suffering from the consequences of being overweight, I knew it was time to change. On top of it all, I now also had high blood pressure.
Why Metabolic Balance®?
The thing that convinced me was the supervised nutrition plan. I had been looking for years for a specific plan that would tell me how to eat properly and that would include a coach to support me through it. I was convinced that losing a lot of weight cannot be accomplished on your own. Or at least I myself couldn’t do it on my own. Although Metabolic Balance® seemed quite expensive at first, it is a lifetime investment that more than pays for itself. My conscience also helped me through. When I thought about how much I had spent, I knew I had to see it through.
What was your experience with the program?
Initially, it felt like like a detox. I was always freezing cold, and my skin was itching. I had to study the food list and figure out where to find all the foods on it. Thankfully, I quickly got used to the plan. Some people around me didn’t understand why I was doing it, but there were also many who offered positive words of support. I pushed through phases 1 and 2. In phase 3, I had a few setbacks, but now I just follow the basic principles of Metabolic Balance® and still eat the foods in my plan. I felt success immediately, and after 2 months, I had lost my first 22 lb. The rest of the weight just kept on dropping off.
What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?
The biggest change for me was not gaining the weight back again! Before, I used to watch the scale going up no matter what I ate. Even after a long vacation, I can still manage to maintain my weight. This is my biggest success. I also just want to move around more and try out different sports. When you eat like this, you acquire a yearning to be more active.
