What made you try Metabolic Balance®?
I had tried many diets over the years, pretty sure there wasn’t a diet I had not tried. I work out pretty 5 days a week and yet still no real weight loss. I had heard that weight loss is really about 20% exercise and 80% food. So I knew it was the food. The turning point for me to make a change was the morning I got up to put the dog out in the morning. I struggled to get out of bed, and hobbled my way down the stairs to let him out. That was it I knew this was enough, I could no longer go on this way, I had to get my food under control, as clearly working out was not enough.
How did you feel before Metabolic Balance®?
I think you become lost in everyday life, and I needed that moment above to realize how I was really feeling. I was tired, I struggled every morning to get out of bed, and go down a flight of stairs. My health was over all ok, or so I thought. My thyroid was up, polyps on my gall bladder, overweight, kidney stones. I have a physical each year, and small flags to consider each time.
Why Metabolic Balance®?
When I had my awakening, as I like to refer to it, I knew I needed to do something that would be just for me. I knew it was food, and I knew myself there were foods that made my weight more of a struggle then others. So I knew no amount of working out was making that much of a difference. I did a lot of research and phoned a wellness centre for advice. It was suggested I meet with Sujata Kale-Banerjea who would be able to discuss with me this program Metabolic Balance. What was a 15-minute consultation to discuss the program went over an hour. Sujata was amazing and really explained the program and what to expect. I knew right then and there this was the program for me, and Sujata was the coach that would be there for me though the whole journey. And she was and still is.
How did you find the program?
I honestly went into the program with an open mind and a determination that I could do this. I knew this is something I needed to do for me. The hardest part for me was the first 16 days, as I could not work out. Working out was just part of my everyday life, so that was hard. As for the program, it was easy to follow, and if I had any questions or concerns I knew I could contact Sujata and she would guide me. I started the program May 10th 2016, almost a year ago now. I still stick to the rules and the foods for the most part. In that time, I have had a huge family reunion, two vacations and I am always able to get back on track. As my husband tells me every time, Sujata gave me the tools not just to loose the weight but to know what to do when you “slip” how to get back on track. I know how to get back on track and stay on track.
What is the biggest change since starting Metabolic Balance®?
I started this program weighing 174lbs my goal was to get to 145lbs. Today I am now 132lbs. In fact I have been around that weight since December 2016. So far, I have lost over 40lbs, and I am also maintaining the weight. In January 2017 I went for my physical, and the results were amazing, not just in weight, which they were stunned at the loss, but that I had lost the weight but had not lost any muscle mass in the process. My polyps are no longer a concern, my thyroid levels are down, and my over all health is an A+!
I feel good and now I jump out of bed and run down the stairs to put the dog out. Metabolic Balance® is about making life changes for life. Thank you Sujata! That day back in April changed my life, and gave me the tools to use for the rest of my life, for good health, good well being.
