Metabolic Balance® re-sets your metabolism and hormone levels, particularly insulin, in order to enable your body to reach its natural weight or “Set Point”. It is a program that gives you your personal guide for Life. No more Dieting !
The Metabolic Balance® program was developed by Dr Wolf Funfack M.D. in Germany in 2001, who is a physician that specialises in nutritional medicine. He provided 25 years of clinical research, his scientific studies and the special analysis techniques used in the generation of a personal nutrition plan. He worked with his wife, Birgit Funfack (a qualified Naturopath) and Birgit’s sister, Silvia Birkle (Food Technologist), to develop this very successful way of eating fresh food to improve the health of the world ! Food is definitely a medicine that can change the composition and workings of your body so you can get your Life back and feel young again !
The program creates stable insulin levels through a healthy diet, allowing you to feel satisfied after meals, while balancing your body’s metabolism and reducing inflammation.
Before you start the Metabolic Balance® program, a blood test is required, which shows the specific foods that are best suited to your personal biochemistry and this determines your eating plan.
There are 8 very Important rules that must be followed, which allows the body to prepare and enable the processes of hormonal change so that you can release the fat cells and some toxins. These rules will be discussed at your first Metabolic Balance® appointment. Tea and Coffee are allowed with your meals but must be taken black (no milk). Alcohol is definitely off the table for the first three weeks and then only once a week with a “Cheat Meal” and better to keep it to only one glass.
There are 4 Phases (Stages) to the Metabolic Balance® program. Each stage is carefully designed to move your body through the processes of change, to allow effective fat burning to happen during your sleep. No exercise is required - in fact we ask that you do not do any exercise at all during the first 16 days.
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 only eat the foods specified on your personal nutrition plan.
After this, in Phase 3, healthy oil will be re-introduced to your diet alongside the occasional ‘treat’ meal, where you can enjoy whatever you like.
Phase 3. Additional foods will be added to your food list.
Phase 4. On the basis of your knowledge, and experience with the previous three phases, you can now experiment for yourself and get to know which foods are right for you. Now you can begin to slowly ease yourself away from the Phase 2 strict plan, whilst still following the nutrition advice you have learned during the programme. It is crucial to listen and follow the advice of your Metabolic Balance® Coach and ask them questions to help you navigate through the program.
To understand more about the program and have your questions answered please book an appointment via the “Book In” button at the top of this page. Remember that I am a Mobile Clinic - meaning I come to you and sit down together in your home, so the Initial consult is $160 (AU) and will take 1 and a 1/2 hours, during which time I will take your health history, lifestyle and diet. We can address your main reason for wanting to join the Metabolic Balance® program to make sure it is the right “fit” for you. We may find that some issues should be addressed prior to joining the Metabolic Balance® Program.

There are two further payments of $300.00 both of which are due at the following third and fifth consultations.
Your first Metabolic Balance® appointment (approx. 60 minutes). I take your measurements, height, weight, photos, paperwork, discuss your goals and talk you through your personal Metabolic Balance plan and give you the first part of the plan (Phase 1 and 2), along with how to implement the plan with lots of hints and tips to help your manage. I will support you the whole way through by providing a further 6 consultations regularly at your home (as I am a mobile clinic) over the next three months.
Your Second Metabolic Balance® appointment (30 minutes) is 7 to 10 days after you have commenced your plan, where I check how you are going and answer your most pressing questions. I take your measurements again and weight. Reminders and tips.
Your Third Metabolic Balance® appointment (30 minutes) usually 10 to 12 days after second appointment. I take your measurements again and weight. Phase 3 of the plan is given if you have reached (or are close) to your goal.
All other appointments are scheduled within the three month window. This is so that you will achieve the results you want in a safe and easily reachable time frame. I would advise keeping to this schedule if you want to feel better, as those who stretch out the time usually do not find the same motivation and hence the same results.
Please note Time Limit: if all 7 consultations have not been used within a year (unable to attend due to emergency or sickness), then remaining consults become invalid after one year.
