After analyzing her food diary, we saw that she was consuming lot of simple carbohydrates foods and low protein sources throughout the day. Such patterns were leading to high sugar levels throughout the day with sudden spikes in the insulin levels causing insulin resistance. Her meal timings were also off with improper portion sizes depicting poor food choices and patterns. This was leading to poor concentration and feeling lethargic at college hours and during self-study at home and increased hunger pangs later in the night causing late evening snacking which further disrupted her sleep cycle. We designed an optimum macronutrient ratio for her which suited her health goal, caused fat burning along with meeting her study and routine need. Her day started with healthy protein consumption like fruits, eggs with vegetables, a slice of cheese with carbohydrate breakfast of her choice which was also scrumptious so that she can kick start her day without feeling lethargic and fatigue. This also helped her focus on college lectures. We also provided her favorite foods in a healthier version to suffice her taste palate and mood. For example, we suggested her pasta with lot of veggies and healthy sauces.
