CASE STUDY & SUCCESS STORIES
BMI: 38 (obese)
Case History: Naveen has been battling with obesity from the past 20 years. In the past, he tried many diets and lost weight, but he could not follow it for more than a month as the diet prescribed would make him hungry very soon and as a result, he would have to use his will power to stick to a diet. Furthermore, cravings would build up by the evening as he was constantly hungry. Also, as the prescribed diet did not suit his taste palate, he was not able to follow it. He would give up the diet after a couple of weeks and thus regain the lost weight. He started to experience body pains and more specifically stiffness in the upper back, fatigue, and lethargy throughout the day. Consequently, it reduced his overall mobility to such an extent that he would think twice before getting up from his workplace to get a glass of water.
Approach by the best nutritionist in Hyderabad, Telangana, India: We first gave him an anti-inflammatory diet that addressed his body pains and stiffness. This made him agile and energetic and motivated him to do daily morning walks. Being an IT professional and working from home, his lifestyle is fairly sedentary. We therefore designed a meal plan with the Carbs: Protein: Fat ratio of 47:18:35 which gave him a feeling of satiety and satisfied his cravings and therefore did not require to use his will power, while also ensuring there is enough fasting period for the body to get into fat burning mode. This helped him keeping 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, and it suited his palate to make it sustainable for him.
Results: Naresh has successfully and happily been able to follow the plan for the past 6 months without giving up. He is absolutely delighted to get back to the weight he was at while in the 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 the 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. His back pains have disappeared, and his hs-CRP (inflammation) scores have dropped from 8.9 to 4.7 in 3 months
