Personalized nutrition can improve mental health, reduce mood swings and anxiety.


Name: Mamta

Age: 39

BMI: 32, obese

Case History: Mamta, was diagnosed with schizophrenia 20 years back. She was taking steroids and other high-dose medications as suggested by her psychiatrist, which ultimately resulted in weight gain and increased appetite. Due to the medications, her gut health was compromised. She had irregular bowel movements which would happen once in three days.

According to her blood reports, her prolactin levels peaked at 156 due to anti-depressant medications. High inflammation was seen as the Hs-CRP was at 14.7.

Moreover, she used to consume frequent small meals every 2 hours, mainly consisting of refined simple carbs which made her hungry throughout the day and constantly crave food. She also had trouble having quality sleep which made her feel edgy & anxious the next day. Thus, she was looking for assistance with mind-body transformation.

Approach by the best online nutrition coach: We started by focusing on improving her gut health and included food that supports her brain health. We designed an anti-inflammatory diet rich in fiber, efficient protein, and whole grains. We introduced omega-rich food and healthy fats like coconut oil into her diet. We altered the meal plan based on her feedback. Since she and her mother lived alone and needed assistance with food, we also provided meals from our Fit4Life kitchen to support her health goals.

As per the blood reports, we advised her to start vitamin D and vitamin B complex supplements immediately.

In the second phase, we also introduced super food like hemp milk to improve her gut health and reduce inflammation. This also helped her reduce anxiety and improve her sleep quality. Gut-healing food like dates, figs, etc. was included, which helped in consistent bowel movement. We gave her healthier sweet and savoury options like flavoured yogurt, dates, figs, cheese, hummus with vegetable sticks etc. that did not cause mood swings and helped her sustain her weight loss. We made sure she consumed adequate protein and fiber in every meal to give her consistent energy throughout the day and helped in reducing sugar spikes while also satisfying her food cravings.

Our unique service of real-time support with our clients every single day helped us understand her body better and therefore kept modifying and tweaking the meal plan based on her feedback. We also guided her with establishing physical activity that would work best for her body type. We also suggested therapy which provided her with a supportive environment and helped in developing coping skills.

Results: In 1 month, she lost almost 4 kgs. Her washroom cycle improved significantly.

Within a week she could notice an improvement in her energy levels. Over a 3-month period, she dropped 2 dress sizes. She started feeling calm and happy. She can concentrate and focus on work better. Her sleep cycle & quality of sleep improved significantly.
