Hello and welcome. My name is Sylvia and I am the head coach and owner of metabolic balance of Central Indiana. In this blog I will provide you with news and updates about the world of metabolic balance.


Why metabolic balance?

By Sylvia Egel - Posted on 09 June 2009

Even though I have been working-out quite some years, I have been stuck on my plateau. I saw people in the Sports Center, who could eat whatever they wanted and still lose weight ... I just couldn't! Even just looking at a chocolate bar, I started putting on the weight – or had to take an extra speed walk around the house to keep it off.

When I learned about metabolic balance from childhood friends while visiting with them in Germany, I saw an opportunity for myself.  Soon after starting on my personalized metabolic balance plan, I realized metabolic balance had a much bigger impact on me then I had anticipated. Not only did I lose weight easier than I ever had – it changed my understanding of health and initiated the return of my enjoying to cook and eat again.

Seeing healthy changes in my family and friends as a result of their metabolic balance participation, I realized, that I would like to share this experience with others. Suddenly I saw the puzzle pieces of my life come together …! 

… it is exciting to see people changing due to a new found parameter in their lives. I love to see those changes and love to listen to those stories! I live for good changes! I would love to be on your side, when you make the change in your lifestyle! 

Have a sunny day – with rainbows, if it rains,

       Sylvia.

Gregor Praecht on the Andy Bumatai Show

By Sylvia Egel - Posted on 12 June 2009

Gregor Prächt – a metabolic balance spokesperson was also on the Andy Bumatai Show.

I love his songs and Gregor's VOICE! He is an amazing tenor and a wonderful person. We met when he was a speaker at a metabolic balance seminar and then again at the metabolic balance congress in Germany. His motto is Breathe right – Eat right. His presentation topic naturally had a lot to do with music and breathing. In addition, his “musical number patterns” are eye-opening and were very moving to me.

As Gregor Prächt told Andy during the show, metabolic balance changed his life. And Gregor changed my views on music which has impacted my life greatly. I'm very much looking forward to his new CD - I will keep you updated, when it will be on the market.

Enjoy Gregor's conversation with Andy in the attached video below ...

WHFoods - Food of the Week: Carrots

Every week The World's Healthiest Foods web page (WHFoods.Org) selects one of 129 foods that can serve as the basis of your Healthiest Way of Eating. This week's pick is ...

Carrots

Easy to pack and perfect as crudités for that favorite dip, the crunchy texture and sweet taste of carrots is popular among both adults and children. Although they are shipped around the country from California throughout the year, locally grown carrots are in season in the summer and fall when they are the freshest and most flavorful.

The carrot has a thick, fleshy, deeply colored root, which grows underground, and feathery green leaves that emerge above ground. It is known scientifically as Daucus carota, a name that can be traced back to ancient Roman writings of the 3rd century. Carrots belong to the Umbelliferae family along with parsnips, fennel caraway, cumin and dill which all have the umbrella-like flower clusters that characterize this family of plants.

Bell Peppers

A wonderful combination of tangy taste and crunchy texture, bell peppers are the Christmas ornaments of the vegetable world with their beautifully shaped glossy exterior that comes in a wide array of vivid colors ranging from green, red, yellow, orange, purple, brown to black. Although peppers are available throughout the year, they are most abundant and tasty during the months of August and September.

Sweet peppers are plump, bell-shaped vegetables featuring either three or four lobes. They usually range in size from 2 to 5 inches in diameter, and 2 to 6 inches in length. Inside the thick flesh is an inner cavity with edible bitter seeds and a white spongy core. Bell peppers are not 'hot'. They contain a recessive gene that eliminates capsaicin, the compound responsible for the 'hotness' found in other peppers.

WHFoods - Food of the Week: Olives

By Sylvia Egel - Posted on 03 August 2009

Every week The World's Healthiest Foods web page (WHFoods.Org) selects one of 129 foods that can serve as the basis of your Healthiest Way of Eating. This week's pick is ...

Olives

Olives are harvested in September but available year round to make a zesty addition to salads, meat and poultry dishes and, of course, pizza.

Olives cannot be eaten right off of the tree; they require special processing to reduce their intrinsic bitterness. These processing methods vary with the olive variety, region where they are cultivated and the desired taste, texture and color. Some olives are picked green and unripe, while others are allowed to fully ripen on the tree to a black color. Yet, not all of the black olives available begin with a black color. Some processing methods expose unripe greens olives to the air, and the subsequent oxidation turns them a dark color. In addition to the original color of the olive, the color is affected by fermentation and/or curing in oil, water, brine or salt.
