The metabolic balance® program is a sophisticated nutrition system based on the client’s blood values and unique health profile. It was founded by Dr. Wolf Funfack and originated in 2002 in Germany. Today, metabolic balance® has become a global company which is present in more than 35 countries. More than half a million people practice the program worldwide.

Metabolic Balance, Inc. was established in 2010 to bring the program to the U.S., and is headquartered in San Francisco.

As a leading holistic weight management program in much of Europe today, metabolic balance® is backed by over 25 years of scientific study and is managed by dedicated physicians and nutritional scientists.

The reason we’re highlighting metabolic balance today is that it’s primary strategic focus is combating insulin resistance which is a leading cause of Metabolic Syndrome. American Heart Association says Metabolic Syndrome impacts 47 million people and many experts feel will soon overtake smoking as the leading risk factor for heart disease.

  • The underlying causes for Metabolic Syndrome and how it puts people at risk of heart disease.
  • How Metabolic Syndrome impacts peoples’ quality of life.
  • Why quick fix medications and fad diets lead to yo-yo dieting and make the conditions of Metabolic Syndrome worse.
  • What you can do to reclaim their health naturally.
  • How the metabolic balance® program improves and often reverses Metabolic Syndrome conditions.
  • How metabolic balance® uses a client’s blood values, personal data, medical history, food preferences and biology to create an individualized program.
  • Why coaching provides the needed emotional and personal support to help clients succeed.
  • Why metabolic balance® doesn’t sell prepackaged foods and supplements to help clients get results.
