Eat right to beat anxiety & restlessnes says the best clinical Nutritionist in Hyderabad.


Name: Dr Sanjay
Age: 50
Gender: Male
Profession: Ophthalmologist

Case History: Dr Sanjay is a bustling ophthalmologist who struggled with anxiety and restlessness especially before surgeries. He needed sugars right before his surgery to keep him calm & tranquil which caused insulin spikes & dips.

Analysis by online nutritionist in Hyderabad, India: Based upon his dietary history, his morning intake had multiple episodes of small meals which included quick digesting carbs like sandwiches, small bites, tea, etc with a high glycaemic load that gave him instant energy & sugar spikes and thereafter subsequent dip in energy. His dependence on quick digesting food to maintain blood sugar levels during the day led to anxiety and restlessness.

Approach: We limited his numerous episodes of food & caloric drink consumption into 3 wholesome balanced meals and a snack with each meal designed to take care of his busy schedule & professional requirements. We prescribed him a diet that had a 50:20:30 composition with complex carbs, adequate protein & healthy fats in the whole day, however higher composition of protein and fats in the first meal to reduce his anxiety & restlessness. We gave him a quick to-go meal at lunch with balance of complex carbs, proteins, and fats.

Dinner being mostly a family meal, we gave him the same family meal that he always had as it was a pleasure meal for him. As a comfort food, we included white rice with lots of vegetables and curry. To make the lifestyle change more sustainable for him, we provided him with recipes that took care of his health and satisfied his cravings at the same time.

The meal plan kept him going without any drop in energy levels and helped in managing anxiety & restlessness throughout the day.

Result: Within the first few weeks, his energy levels improved significantly. His anxiety levels & restlessness reduced greatly, in fact he felt calm and was able to perform surgeries without being edgy as he didn’t require quick snacks right before surgeries anymore. By the end of the program, he lost 5 kgs and his HbA1C reduced from 6.9 to 6.

He has been able to sustain this lifestyle for over a year now. He has not had any hypoglycaemia episode despite his erratic & busy schedule.
