I have been on the Metabolic Balance Plan since June 7th and I have lost 17 pounds and a total of 10 inches from the belly, hips and thighs. Believe me it works but you have to commit to it. It is not a "diet" but a meal plan made just for you. It is easy to do because for the first two weeks you follow the menu the plan provides for you. It is an adjustment, I won't lie, but once you get into it, it is fairly easy. You eat real food, fresh food that most people have at home. You don't need to buy special foods or take any supplements. Yet you will feel very good and energized. Your body adjusts and you will not crave sweets or junk foods as much after a while.
My coach is Karine Vaillancourt. She is very knowledgeable and very available for any questions you may have. She was able to give me alternatives to some foods that I did not particularly like. She is very passionate about the plan and it shows. She has your best interest at heart and will encourage you if you get a bit discouraged.
Right now I am allowed to have a "treat meal" every week and I really enjoy it! I gradually add new foods, one at a time, in my plan and I can almost eat anything now keeping in mind the 8 important rules. You also get used to eat smaller portions because your body tells you that you are full and you should not continue eating. Surprisingly, it is not that difficult to see people eat chips, desserts, etc. because you body will not crave it. I can even have a glass of wine once in a while. With a regular exercise routine, I will maintain my weight and feel even better.
All in all this plan works and if you commit, you will not do the yoyo like some "diets" out there. This plan concentrates on your own metabolism.
Currently, I’m in the fourth week of “my” Metabolic Balance plan, and I feel pretty great. I had been struggling with issues relating to bloating, lack of energy, and difficulty sleeping. I often suspected that my diet was the culprit; however, despite my efforts, I wasn’t able to resolve these issues – perhaps because my idea of a balanced diet was eating a salad before a chocolate bar J. I chose Metabolic Balance because it incorporates real food without eliminating important nutrients. Furthermore, my plan was tailored specifically for me. When deciding on a coach, Karine was the best option: not only is she well-versed in nutrition, but she also practices a very healthy lifestyle. The first two weeks of the plan were challenging, and I struggled with the changes, but Karine was/is always supportive and encouraging. My results thus far include improved digestion, energy, and quality of sleep. Additionally, I lost 10 pounds and 4.5 inches, and my skin has never looked better. I’m very happy I decided to reach out to Karine and start the Metabolic Balance plan because now I actually feel HEALTHY.
