The Founders of the metabolic balance® nutritional programme
The internal medicine and nutrition expert, Dr. Wolf Funfack, developed the metabolic balance® nutrition programme in collaboration with food technology scientist, Silvia Bürkle. Based on his many years of experience in the area of nutrition, obesity and related metabolic illnesses, the foundation of metabolic balance GmbH & Co. KG corporation Nr. Munich, Germany, was formed in 2002. metabolic balance® has grown globally since and has made an impact on thousands of individual lives that have made use of this method to re-establish and successfully maintain a balanced metabolism and a continued sense of well-being.
Dr. med. Wolf Funfack
Following his dissertation on the subject of “Obesity in infants and young children,” Dr. Funfack was engaged in the practice of internal medicine and nutritional medicine for 25 years. His many years of experience with different dietary programmes prompted him to search for an effective and lasting method that would restore a properly balanced metabolism and to successfully make long-term weight management a reality. After intensive research he developed the metabolic balance® nutritional programme in collaboration with the food technology engineer, Silvia Bürkle.
