Metabolic Balance

Metabolic Balance diet can help you lose weight and keep it off with delicious natural foods!

Metabolic Balance became famous in 2013, when Boy George attributed his dramatic weight loss to the programme.

The Nutritional Therapy Clinic has helped a huge number of people to lose weight using the Metabolic Balance diet, which first became available in the UK in 2009.  Hundreds of our clients have been on the programme and this diet has enabled many of them to lose between 5kg to 45kg of excess weight, whilst also experiencing significant improvements in their health and how they feel, at the same time.*

Metabolic Balance is not just about losing weight,  although weight loss and weight management are the  main reasons most people go on the diet. Both men and women can benefit from this weight loss programme and  it also offers many surprising health benefits such as the following:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Hormone regulation, which helps men and women with hypothyroidism and women with Polycystic ovarian syndrome and menopause
  • Improved skin condition
  • Improved mood and lifting of depression
  • Better sleep quality

Frequently Asked Questions

Metabolic Balance® is a scientifically based healthy eating programme or diet, backed up by 20 years of research by German physicians and nutritionists. It is a four stage weight loss plan for now and the rest of your life. You get to eat three meals a day, made from natural healthy foods that are easily found in local shops and supermarkets. Each person receives an individual weight loss plan devised by one of our expert nutritionists, based on his/her exact nutritional requirements, and these are determined by blood tests taken at the start of the diet process.

As many as 65% of the adult population suffers from obesity and weight related health disorders, which are often caused by poor diets high in refined carbohydrates.  Refined carbohydrates such as sugar, pastries, cakes and baked goods made from white flour, are low in protein and lacking in the necessary vitamins and minerals the body needs, so diets high in these sort of foods result in poor nutrition, which in turn disrupts hormone levels and your metabolism, leading to weight gain and other health issues. It’s a bit of a vicious circle as well because hormonal imbalance then makes it harder for you to lose weight, so you end up in that situation where you seem to be on a permanent diet but your body resists all your attempts to shake the excess weight off and you never seem to lose weight.

Phase 1

You will gently detoxify your body for two days.

Phase 2

This phase of the diet will last for a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of four. Your body will begin to adjust to the new, healthy nutrition. Clients often see improvements in energy as well as weight loss during this early phase of the diet.

Phase 3

Food items so far excluded from your diet plan can now be introduced, during this phase clients report further improvements in well-being, increased energy and weight loss.


Phase 4

This phase is indefinite and commences at the point that you’ve decided you are happy with how much weight you’ve lost and with your health and well-being. You will continue to follow the basic rules of the diet to maintain a healthy functioning metabolism and be able to maintain your weight.

Anyone, male or female, who wants to lose weight, or manage their weight, plus it can be very beneficial for the following conditions and illnesses:

  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Rheumatism
  • Migraines
  • High blood pressure
  • Fatigue
  • High cholesterol
  • Osteoporosis
  • Menopause and related symptoms
  • Allergies
  • PCOS
  • Hypodthyroidism

Metabolic Balance® works by adjusting your individual body chemistry to re-balance hormone levels, thus promoting fat burning, decrease fat storage, help to promote “anti-ageing and generally making you feel healthier”.

Metabolic Balance® re-balances hormone levels, which in turn helps burn fat more effectively, decrease fat storage and consequently results in weight loss.  The following factors make Metabolic balance different from other diets.

1. Your  diet plan is unique to you and taken from your personal data and blood values, so no two plans are the same. It is your metabolic “fingerprint”.
2. There is no yo-yo effect as can be experienced on many other diets.  Once your metabolism has been reprogrammed, long term weight loss can be maintained by following some basic rules.
3. Only body fat is lost, not lean tissue and muscle and often this can result in a complete transformation of body composition, in other words a change of shape.
4. The Science behind Metabolic Balance® is backed by over 20 years of research by German Physicians and Nutritionists.
5. It is tried and tested, with over 250,000 plans produced for clients based all around the world.
6. Metabolic Balance is a 100% all natural programme, using delicious, healthy everyday foods found in your local supermarket!
