Metabolic Balance - a client's story
I received this wonderful story from a client about her experience with Metabolic Balance®. I have a lot of respect for people willing to do the work and commit to making big powerful changes. Well done Vicki!
I will be forever grateful to a dear client of mine who told me about her fabulous daughter - a Metabolic Balance® Therapist, was moving to Arnside.
Metabolic Balance® was something I had heard about, read up on, loved the idea but never found a local contact. Then walagh - one was arriving on my door step - it was a sign. We met, we talked and I said sign me up - I will start tomorrow!
Del Johnson, is a warm, caring, honest therapist who explains the programme and process in great detail. She is available for text, email or phone calls in between regular meetings to explain particular reactions you may be experiencing, ie. headaches, being emotional etc. The face to face meetings with Del gives you a chance to iron out any issues, it gives you encouragement and confidence to continue.
So obviously, starting tomorrow was not feasible, blood test required. The one thing I realised in the first meeting - a consultation only, no pressure to sign up then and there, was that you have to be organised and plan well, plus be open to trying new foods. For phase 1 and 2, you need to put your normal routine on a very different path. A path I would highly recommend you start.
I do not feel like I am on a diet.
I eat more now than I did before, fresh unprocessed food. Who knew I would love buffalo mozzarella cheese and shiitake mushrooms!
I understand how my body uses the food I eat and how to maximise this process.
I have always struggled with my weight, been on many varied diets - lost and gained, but never felt - even at my thinnest - well and energised or even happy and content!
So although weight loss was one reason to start this programme, more importantly I wanted to feel well. Plus other health issues were developing and I am not one to take a pill, unless I really need to - so this programme would help in my desire to heal myself more naturally.
Yes I am still at the beginning of my - ‘can I use the ‘J’ word’ - journey, only 7 weeks in, I know this programme is something that I will do for the rest of my life. The phases are clear, precise and I love the fact that you are specifically told what to eat, when to eat and drink, as the initial blood test results lists everything you can eat, down to the variety of lettuce! No chance of any confusion. Once into phase 3, you can add favourite foods back into your diet, with a treat meal per week. So you don’t feel like you are depriving yourself. I was very surprised how quickly I felt improvement in how I was feeling, had more energy and started sleeping better.
I would highly recommend Del as your MB therapist and think the whole concept of this programme is the best way to self heal, feel better, give your body what it needs to function at its best and get the most out of your life.
I will be forever grateful to Del Johnson, thank you.
