Metabolic Research Centers have been helping people lose weight for more than 25 years. We still believe in the basic principles upon which we were founded; individual, personalized service and real, whole food.
We offer a variety of menu plans, based on the individual needs and preferences of our clients. Our weight loss coaches meet regularly and one-on-one with our clients to offer support, guidance, motivation, and accountability. Our menu plans offer a variety of food choices and our cookbook helps clients incorporate those foods into delicious recipes. Our centers offer a variety of classes and activities to keep clients educated and engaged throughout their weight loss journey. Our goal has always been to not only help our clients lose weight, but to keep it off. Our Healthy Living program follows the weight loss phase and is designed to teach our clients to employ healthy eating, exercise, and behavioral changes needed to maintain a healthy weight.
Metabolic Research Center was founded over 30 years ago by John and Nina Soileau with one center they managed themselves. They began working in the fitness industry, which quickly evolved into a holistic wellness center; combining real, healthy food, healthy natural supplements and personalized support to provide a safe and effective customized weight loss solution for their clients. John and Nina grew MRC from the ground up to where we are today – offering safe and effective natural weight loss solutions to clients in over 100 weight loss centers throughout the country. John and Nina still guide the direction of MRC with the same philosophy that has created our success and the success of our clients for over 30 years; combining the power of real food, healthy supplements and personalized support to help transform the lives of each client we serve.
MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
