A few years ago, when I was going through a bit of a rough patch, I remember wishing for some positive role models; people that would inspire me, not make me dread each new birthday.

Running a retirement home and my dad’s long, drawn-out illness were taking a toll. I knew I needed to change the lens through which I viewed aging.

Clients like the one you’re about to meet are my wish come true.

Meet Anne;

Anne was referred to me by her family doctor. At age 75, her blood sugar, blood pressure and weight had all been gradually creeping up. This was especially worrisome since she has a family history of coronary artery disease and went through a quintuple bypass at the age of 55.

Saddled with new diabetes diagnosis, increasing cravings and dwindling energy, she decided it was time to give her diet a serious overhaul.

She started her Metabolic Balance plan in May.

By early June, she was down 17 lbs. Her blood pressure and blood sugar responded quickly to her new diet and she only needed to take her sleeping meds occasionally.

By mid June she was reporting significant improvements in her energy levels. More movement and longer walks came about organically as she began to feel better.

We worked hard on digestion and she was able to reduce her need for antacid medication.

Acid reflux is a sign of weak digestion that is often made worse by sugar, processed food and stress. Antacids and other acid-blocking medications come with a slew of dangerous side-effects if used long term . When you block natural stomach acid that is REQUIRED to digest food, you are only putting a band-aid on symptoms as well as setting yourself up for a whole list of other problems down the road.

By August, most of Anne’s lab values had improved, (including blood sugar and blood pressure) and she was able to reduce her cholesterol medication. Her doctor was impressed with her new results.

She lost a total of 30 lbs. on the program. She has since regained a few pounds because she feels better at her current weight. Tuning in, listening to her body and adjusting is something Anne does very well.

She’s currently maintaining her new weight and is conscious of not falling back into old habits. She is also playing around with finding her balance between eating well, feeling good and enjoying life.

Anne is authentic, brave and funny…she kept me in stitches the whole time we worked together.

I admire her determination to take responsibility for her health and her refusal to sit in the victim seat. She symbolizes what living on purpose looks like.

I hope she inspires you as much as she’s inspired me ❤

Here are a few words from Anne:

”Metabolic Balance. These are the words that caught my attention in a local newspaper when I was at a desperate low. By early 2021, I was extremely fatigued and depressed and unable to stay awake for more than 3 or 4 hours.

With a recent diagnosis of type 2 diabetes on top of many other health issues I felt ready to die. I could not seem to stop gaining weight and started having angina for the first time in 20 years since my coronary artery bypass surgery.

I did not just need a weight-loss plan, I needed someone to walk the journey with me. I thank God for Kim. She made this awesome recovery possible through her daily coaching and and continuous support.

It is now December 2021 and I honestly feel healthier than I have in 30 years. I have energy and I can walk without stopping to catch my breath. I no longer have cravings for sugar and carbs and even though I have gained back a little weight I feel very balanced.

My body is working in wonderful ways that I did not think possible. With my doctor’s permission and encouragement I have decreased my statin drugs for cholesterol and halved my proton pump inhibitor for acid reflux. I have been on these medicines for years.

Thank you Kim!!”

Reach out if you feel ready to take the first steps on your health journey.

I love my work and I’m always inspired by my clients.

Here is a client journey I’d like to share with you.

Meet Phil;

An avid world traveler and active retired business man, at 71 Philip manages his hobby farm and has many interests and hobbies.

Phil is a no nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is kind of guy. During our first meeting, he put his cards on the table and warned me about his low tolerance for what he referred to as ‘’cutsy sh*t’’.

He decided to join Metabolic Balance to address weigh issues and joint pain. With the support of his wife, they prepared for strict phase 1 and 2.

2 weeks in, he was down 20 lbs. Although he didn’t enjoy the strict phase he stuck to it.

9 weeks in he was down 39 lbs., the swelling in his legs went down, he was feeling better and had more energy overall. His pharmacist gave him the green light to cut one of his blood pressure medications in half.

Interesting fact; during the process, a long-standing and (in his words) extreme toenail fungus problem completely cleared up. Toenail fungus can be a sign that there is dysbiosis (an imbalance of the gut bacteria).

The fact that this long-standing issue cleared up is a sign that he was doing important work to heal his gut and rebalance his gut microflora. Gut health has huge repercussions on the immune system and overall health.

The real test was during a month-long trip to Germany to reunite with family where he knew he would be wining and dining in top-rated restaurants and lunching in decadent European bakeries.

He got back on his plan upon arrival and was quickly able to get back to his pre-holiday weight. He is now 4 months into his program (including his month in Europe) and is settling in to maintain for awhile until he decides on his next steps.

I would like to thank Phil for allowing me to share his process up until now.

Here are a few words from Phil;

Q. Talk a little about your experience so far.
A. The strict phase was grueling and challenging for 2 weeks, however, I never felt hungry. The food quantities were sufficient. As time went on the program became easier to cook, administer and eat.

Q. What surprised you the most about the Metabolic Balance program?
A. I think the ”Balance” is key and the water is crucial. I feel as if something in my body has reset. My wife, as the cook also lost weight and feels as if she has had a reset.

Q. Can you share a few words about working with Kim?
A. Kim is a great coach, listening to concerns and always suggesting alternatives.

I’m always honored to stroll, jog or sprint alongside clients on their health journey. Phil made me sprint!

I’m especially inspired when folks are courageous enough to step up and take responsibility for their health.

I was having dinner with a colleague the other evening and we were discussing how lucky we were to be doing work that was so satisfying and, well, fun.

He previously worked in a high pressure job in the corporate world dealing with deadlines and giant amounts of stress. A near burnout was his red flag to make the scary career change and listen to his heart and what his body was telling him. My experience working with seniors and a very sick dad is what prompted me to empower myself and take control of my health and happiness.

We both agreed that the reason our new careers are so uplifting and motivating is because we get to share with every single one of our client’s amazing transformations and journeys. Hearing from clients on a daily basis, how their diet and lifestyle changes have improved their health and wellbeing is motivating.

Being immersed in the holistic nutrition field and having principles and facts re-affirmed constantly, through research and reading, is another factor that inspires me and has led me to embrace the changes that I’ve implemented in my life. Looking back, these changes have happened gradually and gently but have amounted to a pretty major shift in the healthy direction.

I often wish that I was a better writer to be able to share some of these amazing testimonials, tips and tidbits of information with you to inspire you the same way that I am inspired. When I do sit down to write or try to put something together, I become paralyzed, constantly tweaking and reworking blog posts that end up never getting shared.

How long should the text be? How do I tie everything together so it flows? What if people think it’s dumb? What if people get tired of hearing from me? I have at least half a dozen texts sitting around that I haven’t been brave enough to share.  I never thought of myself as a perfectionist but apparently I was wrong.

A mentor recently shared this statement that resonated: ‘’Go with good enough. When you’re waiting for perfect, the world will never get your help’’

So I’m going for it! I’m committing to 6 blog posts/newsletters (I’m still not sure what the difference is) over the next 6 months. They may not be coherent, they may be too long or too short, and there may even be an occasional typo, gaawwd.

I would also like to invite you to a workshop that I’ve put together that was also designed to inspire you: Foods that heal, foods that harm. In this workshop I will share my top health tips; practical tips and tools that you will be able to start implementing in your life right away. We’ll also demystify some common misconceptions and provide you with tools to make better choices at the grocery store. I hope you can join us.

As thank you for tuning in today, I’m sharing a delicious no cook brownie recipe that was shared with me by a client. I recently pulled it out and thought I’d whip up a batch for the holidays.

I’m not much of a baker because I don’t do well following recipes but this recipe is Kimmy proof.

I suggest soaking the nuts overnight to improve their digestibility. The nuts and the chia seeds provide beautiful healthy fats and great fiber. I decided to make my brownies into little balls that I then rolled into more cocoa powder. I keep mine in the freezer for when that chocolate craving hits. When clients confess to chocolate cravings, my mind always goes to a possible lack of magnesium in the diet. This is quite common since we burn through magnesium like crazy with stress; cocoa is a great source of magnesium.

If you’d like to learn more, Kim will be sharing her tops tips for better health in a workshop. Learn simple things you can do to begin shifting your health today.
