The Metabolic Balance Program

How to rediscover that slimmer, calmer more energetic version of you!

Metabolic Balance is a personalised nutrition plan centred around whole foods. It’s designed to work harmoniously with your metabolism, hormones, and enzymes, offering you the benefits of long-term weight loss, reduced inflammation (which means fewer or no aches and pains), increased energy levels, and improved moods.

This program focuses on the power of real food; there are no shakes or pre-packaged meals involved. It’s not about following a one-size-fits-all diet or embarking on a grueling exercise routine.

Using Metabolic Balance, an evidence-based nutrition program, I’ll create a tailor-made plan exclusively for you. During your one-on-one consultations, I’ll guide you on what to eat, how much to eat, and when to eat it. The foods included in your plan will provide your body with precisely the nutrients it needs to reach your desired weight and health goals.

It’ll be simple and easy to follow and you’ll love the increased energy, better sleep and seeing the numbers on the scales drop!

Metabolic Balance delivers results that extend beyond just weight loss. Clients have also experienced remarkable improvements in symptoms related to autoimmune diseases, menopause, PCOS, thyroid imbalances, skin conditions, anxiety, joint discomfort, diabetes, and hypertension.

The Metabolic Balance Program is different because

It’s not just about how much you eat and relying on your willpower and motivation to exercise.

Your own individual eating plan provides the perfect nutrients for you and regular sessions with me – a qualified nutritionist –  will help you stay accountable and navigate the journey to bring your body back into balance.

You have someone tracking your progress, celebrating with you when the results are good and getting you back on track when they aren’t so great.

  • Learn to understand the hidden triggers you have around food, so you know the difference between being hungry and your brain tricking you to get the next sugar hit.
  • Lose weight by eating simple food that’s easy to prepare, with ingredients that you recognise and all the family can eat.
  • Know the types of food that agree with your body  and make YOU feel better, which means no more bloating, constipation, or aches and pains – so you can achieve optimal health and be more present at home and at work.
  • Go to a restaurant and order the meal that is healthiest for you not because you have to, but because it is the meal that you want to eat.

About me

I’m a qualified Nutritionist and am passionate about everything to do with food and the difference it can make to your health and well-being.  I love helping people find balance in their lives, with natural healthy solutions backed by an evidence based approach.

I saw a nutritionist when pregnant with my son and was impressed by the difference small changes to diet made to my skin, energy and hormonal health.  Eager to learn more about how to provide my family with food that would truly nourish them I enrolled to study nutrition.  Fast forward about 10 years and now I love sharing my knowledge and I want to help as many people as I can thrive through their food choices.

Being a nutritionist I was a fairly healthy eater, however when I did my own Metabolic Balance program I found a resolution to constantly feeling tired, lacking motivation and stabilising my weight.  It’s truly personalised and has helped me identify what food my body runs best on!  I love guiding clients through their own personalised Metabolic Balance program and helping them achieve their personal health goals.

Got questions?

Here are some questions people have asked before saying “yes!” to Metabolic Balance

Do I have to stay on the Metabolic Balance Plan forever?
The program works through 4 phases allowing more flexibility as you progress.   The program is not just a diet, it will set you up for life.  It becomes a lifestyle change as you learn what foods are best for YOUR body. You’ll always have the list of foods that are best for you which you can return to, if the need arises.
After dieting I always put the weight back on again, will this happen with Metabolic Balance?
Metabolic Balance is not so much a diet, but a lifestyle change. Many popular diets often leave you short of energy which can result in food cravings and the so-called yo-yo effect. Metabolic Balance is created for you using your unique blood values, your metabolism and your current nutritional status and is designed to provide you with sufficient energy, proteins, fats and carbohydrates. You’ll learn instinctively which foods are right for you and which foods make you feel good. This means that your success is then in your hands as each individual nutrition plan offers you the blueprint for long-lasting success.
Do I have to give up alcohol?
During the initial reset phase there is no alcohol, soft drink or fruit juice allowed.  Once treat meals are introduced you can include alcohol with your treat meal.
Do I have to exercise?
You don’t have to be great at exercising or be a gym junkie to have fantastic results with the Metabolic Balance program.  The program achieves metabolic health primarily through your food. In fact during the first two weeks, you need to keep your exercise to a minimum. After that, you can do more exercise – but you don’t have to. Of course it’s important to be active and move regularly on a regular basis so we do encourage this when the time is right.
How long will it take me to get to my goal weight?
Everyone is different and releases weight at a rate appropriate to them.  Some people reach their desired weight within 12 weeks, others who have more weight to release require a longer timeframe, and further consultations can be booked to help achieve this.

Metabolic Balance Client Testimonials

"I joined the Metabolic Balance nutrition programme and I haven't looked back. Kim is supportive, full of knowledge and no question is too trivial.

The programme has completely transformed my attitude towards eating and food. I have discovered what foods are good for my body and what foods cause inflammation in my body.

My sleep, mood and overall feeling of well being have improved beyond belief.

The consultations included on the MB programme are well spaced over a good length of time which has meant that the programme has become a way of life and I feel confident that I have the knowledge to continue on my own after my last consultation in April.
I would highly recommend Kim from Stepping Stones Nutrition if you are ready to take control of your eating and reap the benefits of nourishing your body with wonderfully tasty nourishing food.

Kim's Metabolic Balance program has really worked for me, my energy levels have changed completely, I am no longer tired all the time and my periods are regular and pain free."

"When I first came to Kim , I didn't have much control over my diet. Kim is patient and helps look for alternatives, is accepting of frustrations - I never feel judged or criticised.  Kim always focuses on the solution and suggests alternatives. Now I have more control over my health, I don't have heartburn or indigestion, the food agrees with me"

Metabolic Balance Client Testimonials

"I didn't think it would be possible to look this good so fast!

Before starting the Metabolic Balance program, I struggling with mid 40s hormonal changes, yo-yo weight gain & loss, uncomfortable digestion and changes in my body shape that were making me feel that age was now in control. I was giving away some of my favorite clothes saying - I'll just never fit that again 'at my age'.

Kim began working from our clinic space a number of months ago and treating a colleague. At 52 & my colleague's body changes were incredible, and so - instead of succumbing to the slippery slope of menopause, I saved up, got my blood tests and started Metabolic Balance!

I won't sugar-coat the eating plan - it's a challenge and I had to make some big changes to my eating habits but I persevered and the results are worth it!

I wasn't overweight, I'm a thin person - but I'd built a bit of padding. Enough that I felt uncomfortable in a swimsuit and a bit squished in my old skinny jeans. On the program - all my excess weight (4kg) was gone in 2-3 weeks. I'm now 6 weeks in and 6kg down. I haven't looked this good since I was in my 20s. My inner thighs are slim, my tummy is flat, my muffin-top is gone! Even my side-thigh cellulite is disappearing!

Kim has been absolutely wonderful, a lovely kind lady who is infinitely patient and very supportive. I can't recommend her or the Metabolic Balance plan highly enough. Thank-you so much Kim."
