Creating personal nutrition plans for clients is time-consuming and most of all extremely challenging. We help busy practitioners provide highly personalized nutrition plans for their clients at the click of a mouse.
What does this mean for you? It not only makes things simpler and saves you valuable time, but it also helps you get better and measurable results with your clients.
As Europe’s leading holistic weight management program, Metabolic Balance® brings the ancient wisdom proclaimed by Hippocrates (460 to 377 B.C.), “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”, into your modern practice.
In the development of the nutrition plan, Metabolic Balance® considers your client’s lab values, medical history, current health problems, medications and overall lifestyle, including their food aversions and allergies.

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.
“Since using Metabolic Balance for almost 6 years, I have found a greater compliance and success rate than previous programs and meal plans I implemented. Clients actually come to appointments feeling excited and empowered. It is very simplified and structured just enough for clients to feel well-guided, but not overly structured to be too restrictive that they can’t use it long term for lifestyle. It has also freed up a lot of my time as I do not need to make the meal plans myself. I believe that clients feel more value and trust in the program because it is based on their individual needs.”
~ Melanie Hesketh, R.H.N. - Windsor, ON Solera Holistic Health
“With Metabolic Balance I see faster results, not only on weight loss but well-being. I think that's what makes the clients motivated to follow through with the plan. For me as a nutritionist, it makes my work much easier, I see more results, work less hours and make more money.”
~ Melissa Pancini, RNCP, CNP - Toronto, ON Melissa Pancini
“Food is the foundation to our health and MB really takes the guess work out of the equation. It is the best personalized nutritional program that money can buy. My clients love it, I love it, and as a Nutritionist and business owner, it makes my life so much easier. Every time I deliver a program, I am confident that I am recommending the best possible health recovery program to my client.“
~ Robert Martin, R.H.N. - Gatineau, QC Clinique Poids Sante
“Honest truth - I don't market it. The results of the program speak for themselves. Many of my clients come in by referral. I do have a social media presence through Facebook, Instagram, and our website. Metabolic Balance also has me listed on their website as a coach where some patients have connected with me through there.”
~ Dr. Mary Choi, ND - Toronto, ON Soma and Soul
“Metabolic Balance is a revolutionary program that allows me to participate in leading edge nutritional science and has opened incredible opportunities for me to work along side medical doctors in several countries around the world. Being a Metabolic Balance Coach is the most gratifying thing as a nutritionist I have ever done as it truly has transformed the lives of my clients.“
~ Jane Durst-Pulkys, BSc., CNP., NNCP - Toronto, ON Creative Health
“Metabolic Balance has launched my career as a R.H.N. My clients are experiencing weight loss, less inflammation, better sleep, the need for less medication, better digestion and more energy and vitality. I love the holistic, food first approach that Metabolic Balance offers. With the help of this program, I am able to inspire my clients to take an active role in their health and highlight the power of real food.“
~ Kim L'Ecuyer, R.H.N. - Huntingdon, QC Nutrition Lecuyer
“Metabolic Balance has not only changed my own health, but also my entire nutrition business. As a Holistic Nutritionist, I still wasn't getting the results for myself that I needed to showcase to my own clients. When Metabolic Balance came across my news, I decided to study it and live the lifestyle. And voila, I finally released 40lbs, after trying for 10 years to lose weight, and was able to gain massive energy and even lose all the symptoms of IBS/Crohn's Disease. Because of such a personal success, my clients saw the change and signed up for this magnificent program. And it works for them too! I can't say enough about how personalized this fantastic program is and that is why it works.“
