Myriam W., 29 y.o, lost 35 kilos


Why did you start the Metabolic Balance program?

I started doing the Metabolic Balance program because I kept getting fat. At the end of 2011, I suffered from reflux after each meal. My family doctor explained to me that this was due to my overweight: my stomach was indeed compressed upwards. He then prescribed medicine for me. Right after my visit to the doctor, I thought to myself that it was inconceivable that I would already get sick at 26, due to being overweight. Until today, I never had to use the drug prescription, I preferred to change my life. In fact, a colleague brought Metabolic Balance to my attention. I then did some research on the Internet.

How did you feel before following the Metabolic Balance program?

Psychologically, it was pretty bad. I was withdrawing more and more into myself and had even lost my positive outlook on life. I then transferred this negative energy to my environment.  I needed to change something. I suffered a lot from my overweight. And then I started to have high blood pressure.

Why did you choose Metabolic Balance?

The personalized nutrition program and the follow-up by a healthcare professional convinced me. For years, I had been looking for a method that showed me the right foods. I think if you really have a lot of weight to lose, you can't do it on your own. At least as far as I'm concerned. Even though the price of the Metabolic Balance Nutrition Plan may seem high to begin with, it's a lifelong investment that is well worth it. And precisely, knowing that I had spent that amount on a nutrition plan was an additional motivation, so I had to go all the way.

How did it go with the nutrition plan?

At first, I felt like I was in rehab. I was often cold, itchy. In addition, I had to start by studying all the foods and finding where I could get them. But I quickly adapted. Many around me didn't understand why I was doing this. But I also experienced positive reactions, and many people supported me. I followed phases 1 and 2 to the letter. During phase 3, I allowed myself a few deviations. Today, I still follow the basic Metabolic Balance guidelines and still choose my foods according to my plan. I quickly noticed the first positive results. After the first three months, I had already lost 10 kilos. The rest followed little by little.

What has been the biggest change for you since you started on the Metabolic Balance program?

The biggest achievement for me is that for the first time, I did not gain weight after losing weight. I was so dreading the yoyo effect as I had experienced in the past. And after having a long vacation without gaining a single kilogram, I knew I was on the right track. I even feel the urge to get moving and try new sports. This healthy way of eating makes us want to be more active.
