Health reports in Australia have revealed two alarming facts: a rise in obesity among both adults and children, and a rise in malnutrition in (again) both adults and children. Statistics state that 34-45% of the population across all ages are malnourished. For a country where food is abundant this is a real concern; when it is not food scarcity that is the issue, it is more food quality and lack of knowledge on what is the best food to eat. Education is the key, and this is where Metabolic Balance® practitioners work with clients to educate them on food choices and preparation.
Metabolic Balance® works by identifying the foods that are required by the body to function properly. In order to function, the body requires the 3 macro nutrient building blocks; proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Given the right condition, the human body can repair itself incredibly well. The right conditions are dictated by lifestyle factors, and food is the main one; 80% of your health and fitness is dictated by your diet.
What is the Metabolic Balance® approach?
So you are what you eat, but since everyone is unique the exact balance and selection of foods you need to be optimally well won’t ever be the same as another person’s. But the BIG question is “how can we get it right?” How can we pinpoint with exact precision the foods that are made for you?
Metabolic Balance® is an integrated nutritional approach that is based on intensive support alongside an individual nutrition plan. A clear and simply constructed Metabolic Balance® plan will show:
Which foods should be eaten
In what quantities foods should be eaten
In which combination foods should be eaten
When and how those foods should be eaten
How the 4 phases of the plan will lead to a new way of life
Each plan is unique and exists only once. This is because of the way the plans are created by applying:
Personal blood values
Personal bodily measurements
Personal client details
With that information, Metabolic Balance® can provide a plan that it tailors to the individual needs of a client.
This offers a great opportunity not only to a growing number of people who are already following restricted diets but also to those who simply value their health. When your plan is generated it will be based on the foods that possess the essential, vital nutrients your body most needs. Based on an in-depth scientific and innovative understanding, Metabolic balance® develops your personalized nutrition plan to naturally balance your hormones, enzymes and your bio-chemistry. Just like a fingerprint this plan is unique to you only.
Why is Metabolic Balance® different to other diets?
Because we do not manipulate your body’s biochemistry with supplements such as: injections, shakes, pills or specialized foods.
Metabolic Balance® is the right way to “diet” because it is based on real food. In fact, it is not a diet at all - but rather a hormone-balancing program that helps you to achieve wellness and your ideal body weight; whether you need to lose a little or a lot, your body will find it’s balance. It is also a journey for you to discover the “real you”. You will learn for life what your body needs, imagine this: no more guessing, no more trial and error, no more frustrations.

The Phases of Metabolic Balance®
Phase 1 - This phase begins the process of detoxification and elimination and is key in preparing your metabolism for the next phase.
Phase 2 - For the first two weeks, you must eat only the foods specified in your personal nutrition plan. After that, oil will be reintroduced into your diet alongside the occasional treat meal, for which you can enjoy whatever you like.
Phase 3 - More foods will be added to your food list.
Phase 4 - On the basis of your knowledge of and experience with the previous three phases, you may now experiment for yourself and get to know which foods are right for you. Now you may begin to slowly ease yourself away from the plan while still following the nutrition advice you have learned during the program.

- 7 face-to-face consultations within a 3-month period
- 7 bio-impedance analysis’ within a 3-month period (for progress monitoring)
Note - Blood test and initial health consultation costs are not included in the Metabolic Balance® Plan cost
How much does it cost?
The Metabolic Balance® Plan costs $1,195 The blood test are extra as charged by QML , unless your G.P is “happy” to bulk bill and request those exact tests for you.
However an increasing number of general practitioners no longer offer bulk bill in which case the client ends paying for two consultations which equates to the same amount of money the actual tests costs- and this is why we offer to go directly to QML, get the tests done and simply pay for those. In addition this process is a lot faster as the tests results are emailed directly to my commercial practitioner account . All of this will be explained at the FREE info session.
A comprehensive health and symptom questionnaire is to be completed prior to your initial consultation.
Clients are required to sign my Terms of Service agreement before or at the start of their initial consultation.
Please remember that individual results may vary and expectations have to be realistic, this is why a FREE assessment/information session is available to all NEW clients to discuss further the individual circumstances.
