I will start by saying 5☆ isn't enough....Ivana deserves 100☆!!

I have struggled all my life to get a handle on weight issues. Following the Metabolic Balance Program with Ivana's expert help and guidance, has been my solution. She has helped me to understand how each individual body is different, how our bodies process foods, and the adverse affect some foods can have. Although we think we lead healthy lives and are eating right, it isn't always just that simple. Understanding these elements makes it easier when grocery shopping, preparing meals and eating out.

In 7 months, I lost 12kg, during that time went on overseas holidays and was still able to easily follow my new life meal plan and continue to lose weight.

It is all thanks to Ivana, her willingness and eagerness to help people with a plan specifically designed for their individuality, her patience in answering questions no matter how small, and her positive attitude.

Natasha L. - Took control of her health with the added bonus of losing 12 lbs.

When I think back through my 20’s and early 30’s, I can’t ever remember feeling good. At 22, I was diagnosed with a depression and anxiety disorder. Then, at 33, after going through a period of high stress and big life changes, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I needed a pill to wake up, a pill to keep me calm, a pill to maintain my heart and a pill to go to sleep. Coffee became a food group and I was a raging sugar addict. My stomach hurt, I was bloated after every meal and I knew there was something off with how I was digesting my food. I felt awful every single day.

I had put on about 30 pounds from all the medication and unhealthy food choices I was making. My body was heavy and my joints hurt. I was sleeping no more than 3-4 hours consecutively a night. Tired had become an automatic response to how I was doing.

It still took me until I was 36 to get serious about my health. However, my blood pressure remained high despite medication, eliminating birth control, adding exercise and trying to make better food choices. At 38, I started slipping back into old habits and that familiar tired, moody, depressed, anxious feeling had come back.

It was around the same time that I came across Ivana’s social media posts and discovered that she was certified in Holistic Nutrition. I became more curious about her services and about how she can help me. When we got together to discuss my health concerns, I decided to commit to the Metabolic Balance® nutrition program.

Today, I’m beyond excited about all the changes and improvements I’ve gone through. To date, my sleep has improved significantly; I no longer need blood pressure medication and my anxiety has decreased to a place where it almost no longer exists. I’m not sure that I was ever depressed; I just wasn’t fuelling my body with the right food choices. My focus and concentration has improved and my stomach pain, bloating and digestive issues have disappeared.

The added bonus of this new lifestyle plan was that I lost 12 pounds.

My favourite part about the Metabolic Balance® program is that it is simple, sustainable and supported. It’s a detailed and personalized plan that has helped me form better lifestyle and eating habits that I will utilize for the rest of my life. Working with Ivana was one of the best investments I’ve made for myself. She has been available and thorough every step of the way. It was a positive experience and I feel great!

What made you try Metabolic Balance®?

I became aware of the program through my colleagues at work. I had tried several weight-loss programs before, but without any long-term success. Metabolic Balance® is the first approach where I was able to maintain my weight for a longer period of time. The individuality of the concept convinced me. The blood analysis and the individually tailored food list were the reasons I trusted the program from the start.

How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?

Not good. I had joint problems, a racing heartbeat and I was on the verge to diabetes. Furthermore, I was also plagued with allergies.

How did you find the program?

At the beginning, I had cravings for sweet things that I would never usually eat. This only lasted for a few days. Otherwise I had no problems at all. It was great to see how big the portions actually were and you do not actually feel hungry, despite the fact you are losing weight. 

What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?

My allergies improved a lot. They are not completely gone yet, but I don't need antihistamines any more. Also, I can finally maintain my weight. That is the greatest achievement. After countless unsuccessful diets, this is really a gift.


Jennifer R., age 25 - Lost around 77 lbs in 9 months

What made you try Metabolic Balance®?

I looked at some Christmas photos of myself and I was totally shocked how overweight I had become. At that time, I weighed around 240 lbs and I was generally dissatisfied.

How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?

I had tried everything to lose weight. Literally everything! But in the end the yo-yo effect always kicked in and I was really frustrated.

How did you find the program?

I was often asked how I was able to lose weight, while my boyfriend was still eating 'normally'. People thought this would distract me. But it didn't at all! I honestly find everything on the plan so delicious that it really doesn't bother me if someone next to me eats a pizza or a burger.  Due to the structure and the supervision. Suddenly everything became easy. I lost 77 lbs really quickly and from that moment on, I became more confident. First, I looked for a better job and then I moved in with my boyfriend.

What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?

I feel happy and have never felt so well. When I look at my before and after pictures, I find it incredible to think that used to be me.

Myriam W., age 29 - Lost around 77 lbs

What made you try Metabolic Balance®?

I began Metabolic Balance® when I kept putting on weight. I had acid reflux after each meal. My family doctor explained that due to my weight, the acid in my stomach was being forced upwards and prescribed me medication against it. Straight after the appointment, I still couldn't believe, that at 26, I needed to take medicine for a condition caused by being overweight. To this day, I have not used the prescription and decided instead to to change my life. I became aware of Metabolic Balance® through my colleague. I then researched it on the internet. Next, I quickly made an appointment.

How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?

Psychologically, I felt terrible. I became withdrawn and had lost my positive attitude towards life. This negative energy spread all around me. As I was already suffering from the consequences of being overweight, as described above, I knew it was time to change. On top of it all, I now also had high blood pressure.

Why Metabolic Balance®?

The thing that convinced me was the supervised nutrition plan. I had been looking for a specific plan to tell me how to eat properly for years, as well as a coach to support me through it. I was convinced that if you want to lose a lot of weight, you cannot do it alone. Or at least I couldn't do it on my own. Although Metabolic Balance® seemed quite expensive at first, it is a lifetime investment that more than pays for itself. You have a framework eating plan for the rest of your life.

How did you find the program?

Initially it felt like like a detox. I was freezing cold and my skin was itching. I had to study the food list and work out where to find all the foods. Thankfully I got used to it quickly. Some people around me didn't understand why I was doing it, but there were also many who offered positive words of support. I pushed through Phase 1 and 2. In Phase 3, I had a few set-backs, but now I just follow the basic principles of Metabolic Balance® and still eat the foods from my plan. I felt the success immediately, and after 2 months I had already lost my first 22 lbs. The rest of the weight just carried on dropping off.

What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?

The biggest change for me was not gaining the weight back again! Before, I just used to watch the scales going up, no matter what I ate. Even after a long vacation, I can still manage to maintain my weight. This is my biggest success. I also just want to move around more and try out different sports. When you eat like this you have a yearning to be more active.


Peter K, age 35 - Lost 110 lbs

What made you try Metabolic Balance®?

My girlfriend took me to a talk by Dr. Funfack, who estimated my weight to be around 330 lbs. At that time I weighed 318 lbs and I suddenly thought: 'That sounds like a lot'. I had my blood tested almost immediately and that was that.

How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?

I had not taken the size of my waist or the fact that I was overweight seriously. I didn't have any problems and I felt really fit in terms of my health. I had always dismissed any criticism about my weight, but the day eventually came when I saw things for how they were.

How did you find the program?

I have even been actively taking part in Taekwondo since January. The cooking was a problem at the beginning, but I soon got used to it. 

What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?

I have become more active and will carry on like this until I have reached my target of 180 lbs. My final goal is 160 lbs, but that would really just be a bonus!

Marilu K, age 55 - Change from dress size 14/16 to 8/10

I had been wearing a dress size 14/16 for years, whilst always trying to lose weight. Despite trying, I was never able to keep the weight off for any length of time.

When I tried Metabolic Balance®, I realized, just how easy it was to be true to yourself. The first few weeks of rapid weight loss combined with improved wellbeing impressed me so much that I felt like a spark had been ignited inside me. I felt much more aware of myself and the need to look after myself. I occupied myself with the idea of nourishing my body with healthy food, three times a day. I prepared the foods that I really wanted to eat, and that made me feel satisfied with true dedication.

After four and a half months, I amazed myself when I put on a pair of trousers in a size 8! This was beyond my wildest dreams, especially as I was going through menopause at the time. I found, that after changing my diet with Metabolic Balance®, I suddenly had a lot more freedom and new found energy. I also realized that being true to yourself means taking responsibility for yourself.

Metabolic Balance® has helped me to find peace with myself.

Kerstin P. - Lost 145 lbs

What made you try Metabolic Balance®?

I used to be a good handball player and trained almost every day. However, I was never slender. Following yet another knee injury, my doctor advised me to stop playing handball. I continued eating the same amount, but I wasn't doing the physical activity anymore to offset it, so the pointer on the scales just kept moving upwards.

How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?

In the neurological clinic, where I was working, we had just got some new wheelchair scales. One day I just stood on and got the 'shock of my life'. 

How did you find the program? 

I started with a dress size of 22. Now I wear a size 10 and I have lost an incredible 145 lbs. Without Metabolic Balance®, I would have missed out on my new vitality.

What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?

Sport came back into my life. I go jogging three times a week and I play handball again in my sports club (successfully and without pain). I feel great! I am able to sleep through the night and my blood pressure, as well as my blood values are normal again. I am now more confident and appear more positive to others. I can stroll around the shops with my girlfriends without people looking at me, and now I don't have to worry about knocking things down with my backside!

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.
