"Intermittent fasting can be frustrating with no results if not done right."


Name: Srishti

Age: 27 years old

Sex: Female

BMI: 32 (Obese)

Case History: Srishti, a 27-year-old CA, gradually started to gain weight because of her studies. Over time she gained 15 kgs. She went to a couple of dieticians and also tried intermittent fasting. She was only able to lose 2 kgs which, she would regain the moment she travelled or participated in social gatherings. The intermittent fasting for 16–20 hours, left her exhausted, lethargic, and constantly hungry. She eventually ran out of willpower to avoid junk food, and despite working out for over an hour each day, she saw little improvement. She also complained of low immunity and hair loss.

Approach by the best nutritionist in Hyderabad, India: We checked her fasting and feasting period and realized that she was consuming a fairly large part of her calories at a time of the day when her metabolism was sluggish. She was very keen to continue with intermittent fasting and therefore gave her adequate protein to kick start the day with the energy required to handle a high-pressure job. We ensured that she followed scientific fasting and feasting principles to get the benefits of getting into fat-burning mode. By doing this, her body was placed in a fat-burning zone and helped her lose fat. To ensure muscle mass was retained, we gave her adequate protein in every meal and ensured a sufficient amount of vegetables to keep the body alkaline. We also recommended a variety of effective exercises that would work for her hectic schedule and also not leave her exhausted throughout the day. She frequently travels for business or family vacations, and on those trips, we gave her suggestions based on the culinary options available. She was able to sustain the weight lost when travelling as well.

Results: In the first month she lost 3 kgs, and was able to lose 10 kgs in 4.5 months despite travelling, attending social gatherings and enjoying festivities at home. Her energy levels and immunity improved considerably. She didn’t struggle with hunger pangs anymore. She enjoyed her food as the food given to her matched her taste buds palate. During festivities like Navaratri, she was energetic during the fasting period. Her skin and hair health was also restored. Additionally, through exercise, she toned her body effectively. Now, she feels happy and confident from within.
