Lifestyle change should not be a punishment, says best nutritionist in Hyderabad, Deepika Chalasani
CASE STUDY & SUCCESS STORIES
BMI: 38 (obese)
Case History: Naresh has been battling with obesity for the past 20 years. Previously, he tried many diets and lost weight, but he could not sustain it as the diet prescribed would make him hungry & increase his cravings, as a result, he would have to use his willpower to stick to a diet. Also, as the prescribed diet did not suit his taste palate, at one point he lost interest in following the strict diet plan prescribed & he finally gave up.
Approach by best online nutritionist in Hyderabad, India: As an IT professional who works from home, he leads a sedentary lifestyle. We designed a meal plan with carbs: protein: fat ratio of 47:18:35, that would satisfy his cravings as well as give him a feeling of satiety, thereby not requiring him to use his willpower. This helped him keep his energy levels consistent throughout the day. Furthermore, we modified simple home-cooked meals to ensure nutrition density in his meals and verified that there was enough variety in his daily intake, so he wouldn’t get bored.
We also helped his wife make vegetables and salads delectable so that he looked forward to his meals. When he transitioned from work from home to travel to work every day, we modified his meal plans and helped him with food choices that he could pick from the cafeteria. After covid restrictions were lifted, he decided to take a 15-day vacation with his family. We provided him with our travel guidelines that guided him with making the right food choices and balancing his favourite food with health to make it sustainable for him. Even after 15 days of pleasure food and indulgences, he gained only 1.5 kgs which he was able to lose within the first week back at home with our healthy detox plans.
Results: Naresh has successfully and happily been able to follow the plan for the past 6 months without using any will power. He is absolutely delighted to get back to the weight he was at while in college. After 22 years, for the first time, he got back to 90 kgs and that too within a span of 6 months. He has been able to sustain weight loss despite travelling, attending family functions, and getting back to the offline work environment.
He enjoys all the meals he eats and does not feel that he is on a diet. He is happy to have successfully adopted a healthier lifestyle without feeling deprived.
