A healthy diet without physical exercise is just half way to achieve success. Regardless the goal, it isn’t possible to dissociate them as they are adapted to each person specification. Therefore, the Metabolic Edge logical partners are the gyms and personal trainers that are aligned with our practice. Furthermore, to reach certain goals it is often presupposed to overcome psychological barriers and to redefine priorities. Because of that we also have partners in the fields of clinical psychology and coaching. We also have projects in the food sector with partners in tune with our philosophy and commitment.
In January 2013 I realized that something wasn’t right about my health. I was unusually exhausted, didn’t have enough strength and endurance during workouts and I was quite fatigued, very hungry, and dizzy. I also had lack of strength and a huge energy break after meals. Alone I started to look for help and the symptoms were getting worse day to day without any diagnosis. In the beginning of 2014 I found Metabolic Edge and with a set of new analysis and a rigorous intervention plan, today my blood glucose is stable, my energy came back, I am healed and back in to my exercise training. Congratulations to Sergio and his team for another victory. A hug of the size of the world, I’m in a debt for the rest of my life.
For several months I looked for a change in my body composition, aiming to increase my muscle mass. Although genetically thin I accumulated a lot of fat in the abdominal area. It was then that I looked for Metabolic Edge and I was diagnosed with a hormonal dysfunction that kept me from reaching my goals. With several changes in my diet and a supplementation the results are visible. I recommend!
I must say that finally my dreams are coming true. I found an extremely competent person, after several unsuccessful attempts with other professionals. I want to thank Sergio for his dedication, in order to help people like me that are seeking for “perfection.” Thank you and continue your excellent work.
I met Sérgio in one of the Nutriscience congresses that for me are the best, both in Portugal and internationally. I decided to make an appointment with him because his speech seemed wise, coherent and grounded. I didn’t regret, on the contrary, I am very pleased with the results. The greatest help that Sérgio gave to me was doing the right analyses and having a proper interpretation of them so that the supplementation was thoroughly adequate. It made all the difference. At this moment I am reaching my best physical shape (explosion, strength and cardio) at 31 years old. Thank you Sérgio, it is very good to learn from someone who really knows.
I am 54 years old, I am an insulin dependent diabetic and after 3 years of a degree I woke up with + 20kg, uncontrolled diabetes and 298 of cholesterol, approximately 1.5 years ago. With the monitoring of Metabolic Edge, today I weight 16kg less, my cholesterol is 173, the diabetes is perfectly controlled and I feel energy to enjoy life. I’m grateful to Sérgio.
A change in my lifestyle (extremely active to sedentary) made me realize that I wasn’t eating properly. On the recommendation of a friend I went to Metabolic Edge and was undoubtedly the best that happened to me. Today I feel good with my body, but more important, I feel that my body is in balance. I feel healthy, without tiredness peaks or hunger cravings, my headaches totally disappeared. I have to thank Sérgio for his professionalism and patience, always available to answer any question. Congratulations for the excellent work and thank you.
I am 46 years old and I resorted to Metabolic Edge because I was overweight, hypertension, I already had to take medication and I wasn’t able to sleep properly. With the counselling I have lost 14kg, I have stopped taking medication and I feel very well. I think resorting to Metabolic Edge was one of the best decisions that I ever made and I consider Sérgio to be a very competent person and dedicated to the objectives that he established for us. I highly recommend it! And I’m very grateful.
I met Sérgio by a chance, through some posts on Facebook about nutrition. I got in touch with Metabolic Edge and schedule my first appointment. From that moment on it has always been better! Super professional but with a very accessible speech, always responds to my doubts and he is a guide for my eating regime and training exercise. The results speak from themselves and the learning is constant. I recommend.
I am a young girl with 26 years old and the fight with the mirror is constant. I work out regularly and intensively and my eating regime was always a result of professional advice. But nothing allowed me to loss fat on my torso. I began to feel some changes in my body, from hair loss, to weak nails, irregular bowel movements and even loss of menstruation due to my diets. At this moment I decided to ask for help to an endocrinologist and gynaecologist, who talked to me about birth control pills and drugs. Unsatisfied, I decided to look for Sérgio because when I heard him in a training session I realized his expertise and knowledge of the organism as a whole. I did some lab tests that even my family doctor didn’t know about them and the results were very clear. My thyroid stopped almost completely and the adrenal glands weren’t also famous. Today, everything is resolved. And the most important, without any question, is the return of my menstruation, I have the correct cycles without any synthetic hormone. Thank you very much.
I’ve always had a stand do it well or not do it at all! It is pointless to train hard if we don’t have a diet and a supplementation suitable to our needs and objectives. When I looked for Metabolic Edge, I was somewhat disoriented because it was the food that kept me to reach further (I had caloric and nutritional deficiency). In the beginning I freaked out but I decided to trust in this new process and the truth is that I see and I feel the results! I never felt so good with my body, with so much energy, determination and most important I’m healthy and balanced. To be able to find in only one professional the counselling for nutrition, supplementation and exercise training method make me feel more and better monitored. Thank you for making a difference!
