Metabolic Balance Phases:
Phase 1 – Preparation Phase: Mild two days cleanse. This is to prime your body and gut for your new healthy regime
Phase 2 - Adjustment Phase: 2 weeks of structured nutritional input, replenishing the missing nutrients and restoring vitality. Your metabolism is trained for peak performance and hormonal balance. Depending on your fitness level, exercise is not promoted during this stage, instead gentle walking and stretching is recommended.
Phase 3 – Relaxed Phase: This lasts until you have reached your personal goal. It allows for additional foods, healthy fats and oils to be introduced and ‘treat’ meals on a weekly basis. This is the time where you find your rhythm and acquire new knowledge about your individual needs, cravings gradually disappear and you will have gained more control over the foods you choose to eat. Exercise is encouraged and reintroduced depending on the level of fitness, and your goals.
Phase 4 – Maintenance Phase: It starts once you have reached your goal and are happy with your health and wellbeing. Congratulations! You now have all the tools and knowledge to live your ideal lifestyle.
