What is healthy & active?
healthy & active is an individual nutritional program. It determines for each person the optimal nutrition based on his/her personal hormonal system, metabolism and genetics. With healthy & active you can lose weight in a healthy manner under medical supervision. As a side effect, expect to increase your vitality and optimize your metabolism.
The individual nutrition program was developed 10 years ago by metabolic specialists, medical doctors and nutritionists. The foundation is an analysis of 42 blood parameters and your blood group as a genetic marker. In addition, food allergies, illnesses and personal goals are considered. Your own personal nutrition plan gives out a roadmap for your health.
How healthy & active works
Nutrients from 340 different varieties of foods, fish, meat, cheese, vegetables, salad, fruit, oils/fats, and grains are identified that optimize your personal metabolism. For example, if a person has low cholinesterase values (an indication of a slow processing liver) bitter agents of the artichoke or radicchio may increase liver activity.
Our individual nutritional plan allocates all necessary nutrients for your body. The distribution of protein (20-30%), carbohydrates (40-45%) and fat (30-35%) meets the nutritional recommendations of modern medicine.
With healthy & active you do not have to count calories. Amounts are being calculated so that you feel satisfied and your metabolism stays active.
Your nutritional adjustment occurs in 3 phases.
- The preparation phase – gently helps your body prepare for the upcoming nutritional adjustment.
- The main phase – your body adjusts to the new healthy nutritional regimen. Weight loss starts in this phase and you will feel better than ever.
- The stabilizing phase – starts when you are happy with your new weight and well being. You will receive an additional food list with a wider variety of foods to choose from supplementing your shopping list.

Obesity caused by stress?
