CASE STUDY & SUCCESS


Name: Anita

Gender: Female

Age: 53

Profession: Homemaker

Location: Hyderabad, India

BMI: 44.5

Case History: Anita, a homemaker, suffered from grade 3 obesity. She started gaining weight after her second pregnancy. She has suffered from high blood pressure and sleep apnea for a while. She was recently diagnosed with diabetes and had undergone both knee replacement surgery. Due to excess weight and knee replacement surgery, her movement became restricted, and she could barely walk to the washroom and just about manage her basic household chores. Her doctor asked her to lose weight as her knees and legs could not support her weight. She wanted to lose weight and control her dietary habits but lacked the motivation and support to change her lifestyle. She wanted the right motivation and guidance to change her mindset regarding eating and lifestyle habits.


Approach by the best weight loss nutritionist, Hyderabad, Telangana, India: After meeting her, Deepika realized that she was snacking through the day as she would be at home and had access to many snacks and goodies while cooking in the kitchen. By analyzing her dietary recall, we saw that her diet consisted of simple carbohydrates, foods causing insulin spikes. She also consumed inadequate protein, which caused increased hunger throughout the day leading to nibbling, snacking and fried food consumption for evening snacks. During her dinner time, she needed to be on time with protein. Her metabolism and insulin regulation were disturbed due to erratic eating behaviour. Such eating patterns cause lethargy, cravings, lifestyle diseases, fat accumulation and poor sleep due to sleep apnea. Her lifestyle was also sedentary. Hence, we started by correcting her vitamin D and B12 levels to aid her in weight loss. Then we provided her with a plan consisting of low calories, adequate protein and amino acid profiles and optimum healthy fats. We created a calorie deficit to initiate fat burning. Before she started the program, Deepika did a coaching session on mindfulness, body types, and lifestyle habits causing weight gain. She explained to her the concept of weight gain relating to factors such as age, metabolism, mindful eating, proper chewing of foods, hormonal changes, and sustainability. We taught her the correct lifestyle and eating behaviours. Wherever required, we gave her appropriate cooking methods in order to get optimum nutrition. Meal replacement shakes were incorporated. Mutton bone soup, fish cutlet, etc., were suggested by fit4life kitchen. To meet her vegetable intake, we gave her sauté vegetables, soups, salads, and sabzi. Complex carbs and efficient, good-quality protein combinations were suggested to maintain her sugar spikes. Quinoa, jowar roti, brown rice, pulao, chicken, eggs, nuts and seeds are a few foods that were incorporated. Replacements and innovative recipes were shared whenever needed. Slowly, we included her favourite foods more healthily and mindfully. Constant motivation, support, and guidance were given so that she could follow and sustain her new healthy eating pattern and lifestyle.



Results:

Within 3 months, she lost 11kgs. Due to great results in weight loss, joint pains and knee pain disappeared. Her hunger levels improved, and her washroom cycles got better. She now understands the importance of eating healthy and improving overall health. She recently went on an international holiday and was very happy that she could walk around comfortably without any discomfort. The icing on the cake was that she indulged in her favourite foods with mindfulness and did not gain any weight despite her indulgences. Her other parameters also significantly improved.
