My Life 2 years after the Food and Wellness program.
Enrolling with Meenu Aggarwal’s wellness program in March 2019, was one of the best health decisions I’ve made.
Reasons I decided to join Food and Wellness program.
There were two reasons I approached Meenu, severe knee pain and of course weight loss. I never took any supplements and was against the idea because from my perspective I eat a super clean and healthy diet. so, I don’t need any supplements. Before knee pain I was pretty active, playing tennis and hitting the gym almost every day.
During the first consultation she suggested I go through a couple of tests and guess what my results were?:
· Low HDL
· Low B12
· Fasting glucose high
· Low Vitamin D3
· Ofcourse abdominal bloating and acidity.
How the Food and wellness program has changed my life
Diet regime started in March 2019, all meal plans were designed by Meenu, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks. Plans were highly personalized according to my need as my working hours are from 7:30am to 4:00pm. I was supposed to cook in advance at home or get up early in the morning for preparation. I appreciate that breakfast was easy to cook within 6 to 7 min. The most surprising part for me was to eat 5 times a day. I used to eat a proper meal once a day, so at that time I was stubborn about eating 5 times a day. However, she managed to produce research-based evidence that convinced me and this eating produced the promised and long-lasting results on my health and lifestyle. Additionally, she crafted special meals when I was traveling for long time. Along with meals, various supplement were included in the plan, Vitamin D3, B-complex(B12), calcium, omega-3, Vitamin E etc.
Regarding physical activity, she asked me to cover 8km distance brisk walk every day. To be honest with you guys I was thinking why she was asking me to walk 8km when I had such a bad knee. After some time, she suggested using the stationary bike in the gym and so strength was built in muscles, and I managed to walk 5 km in starting and later I was doing 10k steps or 8km a day easily. My blood test report showed improvement within 6 months and my last blood report exceed all my expectations. I was walking without any pain in my knee and I removed the knee band I was using to support the knee and on a normal I walk I now complete10k, steps maximum and 7K steps minimum till date. Additionally, I do approximately 18 flights on stairs every day. During lockdown I got my mum enrolled with her and it’s almost three months now and she is showing tremendous improvement on acidity and her waistline has reduced. Mom will get her blood tested once again when the COVID situation has calmed down.
The other day I was discussing with my mom about how much healthier we are eating now for sure because Meenu’s program had educated us about when, what, and how we should eat!!!
Meenu is highly approachable, which I appreciate, although I no longer regularly consult with her. She is always ready to reply to any questions I have and recently she approved a protein supplement for me for better results after workouts!
Nutritionally and Healthy Yours,
