Ready to Make a Change?
The Metabolic Balance® program is an innovative, all-natural nutrition and wellness program which balances hormones and optimizes health, leading to an invigorating lifestyle with the added bonus of long-term weight management. It does not involve pills, expensive meal replacements, injections or pre-packaged foods. The essential foundation of the program is natural nutrition.
Dr. Wolf Funfack (✝2013), German MD, Internist and Nutritionist, developed the personalized Metabolic Balance® nutrition concept together with his wife, Birgit Funfack, a Naturopath, and with her sister, Silvia Buerkle, an Ecotrophologist.
The program is based on more than 20 years of clinical research and practical experience.
How does it work?
Your metabolism is unique to you and is directly affected by what you consume. The type of foods, amounts eaten, and even when eaten either sustains and improves your health; or, leads to imbalanced hormones, weight gain, and potential serious metabolic issues. To achieve and maintain a balanced metabolism, your body needs a unique combination of nutrients. This can vary greatly from person to person. One approach does not fit everyone.
Your age, health issues, diseases, food aversions/attractions, unique bio-metrics and blood chemistry can differ immensely from another person's. All these differences are taken into consideration with a Metabolic Balance® science-based and personalized nutrition program.
Using an in-depth analysis of your unique blood values, medical history and personal dietary preferences, a customized nutrition plan is designed specifically for YOU! This nutrition plan acts as a “road map”, indicating exactly which natural foods should be consumed in order to orchestrate the biochemical changes you need to reach your desired weight and health.
The goal is for you to supply your body with all the vital and healthy nutrients it needs. There is no calorie counting and all of the three main food groups – fat, protein and carbohydrate – are included. Once completed, the nutritional plan framework and program can be followed independently for life.
Metabolic Balance® is 100% natural!
Only wholesome, natural foods are used.
There are no prescribed injections, pills, shakes, or pre-packaged foods.
Nor, as with some diets, are you required to keep “points” or count calories.

Micheal W., age 32 - Lost around 147 lbs.
What made you try Metabolic Balance®?
I was far too big! I weighed more than 350 lbs. I knew it could not go on like this. My goal was to weigh less than 220 lbs within half a year. What can I say? I did it!
How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?
To be honest, I stuck my head in the sand in terms of my weight-related problems, and hadn't really noticed how bad I felt. I only really became aware when I started losing weight and began noticing how much easier life was becoming. There was a huge difference with even the simplest of tasks, such as walking up stairs. I get far less out of breath now than I used to and feel much better in myself.
How did you find the program?
After the initial detoxification, where I felt exhausted, I started to feel great. Although working as an estate agent is quite time-consuming, I never had any big issues following the plan. You can always pick something up at lunchtime, or even order something ahead, simply by using the foods from your plan.
What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?
The way I feel now is definitely due to my weight-loss. I have a lot more energy now and I feel great. At the same time I have became someone who is pleased with what he sees in the mirror. I love the new me and feel really happy.
Do You Want to Learn How to Eat for Your Healthiest Body Ever?
Even though the success stories are impressive, Metabolic Balance® should not be viewed as just another diet program. Many health issues and weight gain are often signs of an unbalanced metabolism. When the metabolism is brought back into balance, blood values and weight are likely to normalize. It is a customized nutrition plan that establishes the correct parameters needed for proper metabolic and hormonal function.
The Metabolic Balance® system works with your body by encouraging the release of insulin and balancing your hormones the way nature intended it. It will adapt and regulate your diet in order to stimulate your metabolism, boost your body’s production of the right hormones and help you lose or gain weight quickly, safely and without starving yourself.
The program aims to reduce inflammation in the body which is the number one cause of diabetes, heart disease, blood lipid disorders and even high blood pressure.
How do I get started?
- Our sessions together will start with an initial consultation to learn more about the program and discuss your food preferences, allergies, medications, supplements, your current lifestyle and health history.
- You will then get a requisition form for full blood work. The results of the blood test will form the foundation to your personal nutrition plan. The different key metrics will be used to identify the right food required to train and optimize the performance of your individual metabolism.
- Once we have all of these elements, a personalized nutrition plan is developed tailored to your unique body chemistry.
- Once you receive your individual nutrition plan and before you get started, we will set up a consultation for a 1-on-1 orientation of your plan to discuss the initial phases of the program in detail and to make sure you feel comfortable moving forward. You will learn the 8 rules of the plan and be given a road map of the variety of foods you can enjoy at every meal.
- From the very start of the program, I will be on hand providing you with guidance and support. There will be a series of follow-up consultations that will be spaced between one week and a month, depending on your progress. At every appointment, your improvement will be monitored in terms of key body metrics.
