What our clients say
– Personal Trainer, Olympic Weight Lifter
I have been dealing with extreme digestive disturbances for over a decade. Being a strength athlete and having to consume thousands of calories every day made my situation even worse. I had heard of George from a friend who was a client of his back in the days, and he always spoke very highly of him as a sports nutritionist with a very in-depth knowledge of the human body. So I decided to ask for his help directly. As a former Olympic Weightlifter, I needed to work with someone experienced and deeply ingrained in the sports world. Getting rid of my PPIs, improving digestion, becoming “regular” and gaining more energy in order to perform at my job, were my main goals. I had already witnessed a couple of friends trying “detox diets” for their health issues, but I didn’t want to take that road. Turning into a skeleton with no libido was not in my interest. Also, my physique was, and still is a big part of my job and income. I had to maintain a decent level of muscularity in any way possible. George and his team’s innovative approach exceeded my expectations to say the least. My diet plan was customized to match my exact biochemical needs and included a tremendous amount of fermented foods to enhance gut health. My body composition actually improved during the process and by grasping better where the digestive system “sits” in the hierarchy of bodily systems, I am finally enlightened on what approach to follow for the rest of my life. I can now regulate my lifestyle and eating habits accordingly. Practicing a fasting-focused approach and consuming only whole foods that are right for my metabolic profile are the basis of my new and improved way of existence. I highly recommend Metabolic Body to any physical performance-oriented person dealing with chronic issues.
– Restaurant Supervisor
I have been suffering from severe eczema since the age of 11. My pro-orthodox medicine father and pro-natural medicine mother were always fighting about what is good for me health-wise. That was creating a lot of confusion in my head, so I decided to give both options a try for many years. The conventional approach, full of steroid drugs offered only temporary relief with terrible side effects, and my mother’s natural creams didn’t do much either. Upon extensive research, nutrition seemed to be the last option for me. However, no matter what diet I followed and despite all my efforts, I couldn’t manage to revert my itching, dry, red and scaly skin (which was ruining my confidence and self-worth), back to normal. The metabolic type nutrition plan I received revealed that I am an inefficient balanced metabolizer, which means I should consume a wide variety of food groups, but more cooked than raw. All the nutritionists in Metabolic Body were very warm and extremely knowledgeable. Not only they explained meticulously how my issue emerged in the first place and what should I do to fix it long term, but they also connected the dots on how other chronic maladies manifest from the same root cause- metabolic imbalances! It seems that the rabbit hole is very deep when it comes to human health. We are indeed very complex organisms from many perspectives. Long story short, after an intense 5 months time period of strict adherence I managed to win this life-draining battle. My discoveries along the way have ignited a new passion of mine- nutrition. It seems that there is nothing more powerful than food when it comes to affecting the biochemical status of one’s body.
-High School Teacher
This protocol really works. I purchased it about 8 months ago and have seen tremendous benefits from it. I am a completely different person than I was one year ago. I now have 1 to 3 solid bowel movements per day and have regained all my weight back. Irritability, anxiety and depression are non-existent any more as I am finally free to live life the way I want. And all these thanks to identifying what foods are right for my type and fixing metabolic imbalances. I have been suffering from Crohn’s disease on/off for the last 15 years, meaning that flare-ups and remission periods were the norm for me. The biggest flare-up I experienced was for 2 (painful) whole years. I purchased the Metabolic Type Diet Plan which explains in extreme detail what foods to eat and why, what to avoid, as well as insights on how your specific metabolism works. I bought this program because the concept made so much sense and I am finally living a normal life again. I also love the foods I am allowed to eat: red meats, seafood, raw dairy, some fruit, etc. I can handle almost any food now but there is no reason to go back to unhealthy practices. I will stick with the foods that my body likes and metabolizes perfectly, since they are good for my gut, taste amazing and keep me strong and vibrant. Once you identify your body’s biochemical tendencies everything gets crystal clear, it’s like a switch gets flipped. You’ll know where you should focus your attention nutrition-wise and what foods are not compatible with your system. You will have a roadmap and you will never be lost again! For the people suffering from similar issues and are just starting, you are in for a great transformation, as long as you show proper discipline and adherence. Healing takes time and effort; you can not expect to fix in one day what it took years to break down. It took me more time than I expected to get well, but I reached my destination. So can you. Be patient, persistent and the results will come. You are in great hands.
-Business Owner, Enterpreneur
Business obligations and extended working hours finally took a toll on my body after twenty years of daily race. My dietary habits were never the best and I didn’t really ever eat home-cooked foods on a consistent basis. Everyday stress was intense and “comfort foods” always did their job. I knew my habits were not healthy, but I didn’t care that much, especially while I was making all this money. Unfortunately, issues started to slowly manifest in my early 40s- I finally found myself fat, depressed with flushed skin, hypertension, elevated LDL and triglycerides, glucose intolerance and insulin resistance. After each meal I would experience hypoglycemia 60-90 minutes later. I remember having business lunches with clients and almost falling asleep in the middle of our meeting. Not to mention the terrible head pressure and the fact I was constantly looking like a beetroot ready to explode. When I decided to visit a cardiologist and an endocrinologist for my issues, and they prescribed me 3 different pills (Lopressor, Delapril and Metformin) I felt terrible, because I knew where this was going. I didn’t want to be on drugs for the rest of my life. So I contacted a client who had told me about a great nutritionist who had helped him get rid off all his pills. He referred me to George. Their approach involved metabolic testing and their suggestions didn’t include anything artificial, not even supplements, which they said were optional but not necessary. The therapists provided me with specific dietary and lifestyle solutions to follow in order to address the root cause of my pathologic condition. They also explained to me in simple terms how the body works and how optimal health is achieved by removing the wrong type of fuel and adding in the right one. As a side note, they are very adept at elucidating complex subjects and making them digestible for the average brain. Furthermore, what surprised me was that by following their advice, other chronic disturbances I had, like constipation and insomnia subsided as well. With regards to weight and body image, I now look and feel 10+ years younger; at least that’s what my wife tells me. Excellent services and amazing people to work with.
I have been battling with chronic issues all my life. As a 2-days old infant, I was sick with cystitis. Till the age of 4 I had chronic ear-aches and breathing problems (undiagnosed dairy allergy). At age 5 they removed my adenoids and tonsils. When I was 17 I was already dealing with chronic cystic acne; boils all over my face making me look like I got stung by a thousand bees. I was also dealing with constipation, indigestion, hypoglycemia, anxiety, depression and ADD. As a very insecure teenager I decided to try Accutane. During a regular appointment with my dermatologist, the doctor checked my values and asked if anyone in my family was suffering from thyroid disease. My reply was no and he answered “Well, you are severely hypothyroid and it seems you have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. You need to see a specialist for this”. The news left me shocked and crushed. That could explain some symptoms I had like insomnia, depression, fatigue, dry skin and lack of libido. When I visited an orthomolecular endocrinologist he proposed to try to address my thyroid problems with supplements first, and if that didn’t work, then proceed to synthroid. So I did the supplements (very expensive) but things didn’t improve that much. I was ready to start taking T4 until I heard a friend who managed to reverse her autoimmune arthritis and joint pain via diet. I didn’t believe something like this was possible. She explained me how by following the proper diet for her type allowed her body to heal and her immune system to get stronger. The idea of a genetically specific diet sounded extremely attractive, so I decided to give it a try- and my GOD. Where do I start and where do I finish? What I need to make clear from the beginning is that this is not for the weak in heart. Consistency and discipline are key. The test results revealed I am suited to consume a lot of fruit and vegetables (Carbo Type), meaning that my body runs better on a predominantly carbohydrate diet, free of heavy proteins and fats. So I started juicing vegetables, ditched red meat and began to eat tons of colorfoul, anti-oxidant rich plants. I was amazed at how this diet made me look and feel (bye bye depression). My performance in the gym sky-rocketed and my lab results after 3 months showed negative TPO antibodies (1000+ before). My endocrinologist was extremely happy to announce me that my condition was in complete remission. I had won the autoimmune battle.
This way of eating helped me overcome my debilitating obesity, chronic fatigue, anxiety and IBS. Since I can remember myself I had severe gastrointestinal problems. I was pooping myself all through elementary school and many times under circumstances of extreme stress I would also puke myself. My early life was a shameful nightmare that made me grow up with zero self-esteem and the label “pukie” attached to my forehead. Other kids, especially girls were constantly laughing at me and feeling disgusted with me, so bullying was a huge issue as well. For some reason, my G.I tract was something more than just “irritable”. It was angry or even better furious, with the things I ate. But I didn’t know any better. I had no idea I was consuming foods that were doing me so much harm. I saw many medical experts but the solution was simply not there. Every time they simply prescribed me with Xifaxan, Linaclotide and other drugs that did nothing to fix the undrlying issue. Diarrhea 4-6 times per day was the best scenario. The water, electrolyte and mineral loss always left me extremely fatigued and depressed. Now that I look back, my body was crying for help. I had no option but to try and solve this through the natural route. I experimented with countless dietary philosophies before trying a metabolic type specific approach. I was a strict believer of the one-size-fits-all concept when it comes to diet. I thought “Since all animals have their species-specific diet, we should have our own as well. I just have not discovered it yet.” That led me to adopt a very radical way of eating, consuming only plant-foods and for some months going fully raw vegan. I stumbled upon Metabolic Body through the internet and decided to hire them for a one-on-one consultation. After receiving my test results and my recommended food list I jumped in with both feet. I worked with George and it took me a good 3 months to finally see noticeable improvements, but I kept going no matter what. George insisted that I incorporate daily weight-lifting, dry-fasting and lots of collagen-rich chicken/fish broths to prevent the formation of excess skin during my fat-loss. At the moment I am writing this, I look more fit and healthy than ever, my blood test results show a perfect HbA1c (below 5) and zero signs of systemic inflammation (CRP). I am entirely pain and symptom-free, able to live like a normal human being. I can exercise without fear, build muscle and achieve success in all aspects of life. I can also date beautiful ladies for the first time. I have learned so much about health and myself in the last months. I am forever grateful to the Metabolic Body team and their guidance.
