Success Story

I was hit by a stroke

What made you try Metabolic Balance®?

At the end of November 2010, I had a stroke in my right arm—more specifically, an arterial occlusion. I was terrified and needed an emergency operation! At the time, I weighed 176 lb and at 5 feet 6 inches, was wearing a dress size of 12/14. I was also a smoker.

How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?

I had neurodermatitis and until my stroke had not been able to sleep properly. That part was almost unbearable. I would take sick days 4 or 5 times a year, so my life wasn’t really enjoyable. Also, I had never really been slim.

Why Metabolic Balance®?

My friend told me about it, so I looked it up on the Internet and found a certified coach in my area. I liked the concept of individual supervision and the blood test.

What was your experience with the program?

After a week, I was 7.5 lb lighter and able to sleep through the night.

My goal was an admittedly incredible 26 lb. But it turned out to be 51 lb! I reached my new weight in October 2011 and have maintained a dress size of 6 to this day. I look completely different now, and many of my customers don’t even recognize me anymore—very funny!

What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?

I ride my mountain bike regularly with my boyfriend and am no longer the lame duck who is always trying to catch up. Just recently, I had an age analysis at my gym, and my biological age was 24!!!

Of course I still have neurodermatitis, but I can handle it much better than before because I now know which foods are right for me.
