CASE STUDY & SUCCESS STORIES


Name- Kiranmayi

Age-56 years

Profession- Homemaker

Location- Hyderabad

BMI- 33 kg/m2(obese)


Case history- Kiranmayi is a homemaker from Hyderabad who struggled with sleep apnea, bronchitis, and anxiety and also had a slipped disc that caused severe back pain and was advised by the doctor to complete bed rest. Moreover, she had low energy and mobility, was a big task, followed poor meal patterns, was obese and had a chronic cough due to bronchitis. She came to us hoping to reverse her health issues and learn to follow a lifestyle modification diet.


Analysis by the best nutritionist in Telangana, Hyderabad- Her blood reports showed she was obese, anaemic, had hidden diabetes, high inflammation, and an increased lipid profile.

Approach by the best nutritionist in Telangana, Hyderabad- We noticed that she consumed a lot of tea and coffee throughout the day to maintain her energy level, preventing the gut from absorbing the nutrients and leaving her anaemic. We advised green tea as an alternative and progressively decreased tea and coffee to 1-2 cups daily. She was also having late breakfast, disturbing the whole day’s meal timings. Her diet consisted primarily of foods that digest quickly, such as dosa, rice, rotis, and idlis, with very little protein, vegetables, and healthy fats. We recommended an anti-inflammatory diet that included mutton bone soup, mutton cutlets, and minimal dairy because her body was quite inflamed. The availability of grass-fed mutton in India made reducing inflammation more effective. We provided her with a balanced diet that included vegetables in the form of salads, soups, and one-pot meals to ensure alkalinity in the body, as well as lean protein sources like tofu, mutton, paneer, eggs, whole dals, shakes, and yoghurt. We asked her to chew the food consciously to establish an excellent gut-brain connection for optimum digestion. She took vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin B12 supplements to improve her gut health, anxiety, and bone density. She also had iron-rich foods that were consumed along with good fats like dates, seeds cubes, tofu, and green leafy vegetables that would increase iron absorption and reverse anaemic conditions. In order to promote satiety and lower the increased TG score, complex carbohydrates like whole dals, quinoa, and brown rice were administered. We advised her to stay active throughout the day by doing yoga and achieving a goal of 10,000 steps daily. Initially, as she was not used to movements due to excess weight and surgery, we recommended fidgeting-based moves, limiting her walking activities in the hallway to 5 to 10 minutes. As her weight reduced and her nutrition improved, she could walk 45 minutes in the morning and 45 minutes in the evening and has been able to walk 10000 steps every day without any knee discomfort or pains. Her food intake was carefully tracked by our nutritionist, who also provided regular support.



Result: Kiranmayi lost 12.5 kgs in 6 months successfully by our guidance. Her bronchitis-related cough and numbness subsided, and she experienced a marked improvement in her mood and energy levels. Before increasing her physical activity and adopting a nutritious diet, she only got two hours of sleep. Now, she sleeps for an uninterrupted 7-8 hours each night. Through yoga, she managed back pains and improved bronchitis symptoms. She was no longer dependent on a list of medications anymore. Cravings, inflammation, and lipid profile dropped significantly. She was comfortable following our meal plans and followed them diligently. She is content with meeting her health goals and learned to eat while travelling and socialising mindfully.
