Following a balanced and a healthy diet is an uphill task for a person who is not a professional.So somethings are best left to the professionals. Here came Meenu in my case and from hereon she guided and supported me to be able to manage my medical conditions whilst following a diet that was beneficial for me. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroid after the birth of my second child 8yrs ago. It was a series of medical conditions that followed thereafter, IBS and High Blood Pressure being the main villains along with vertigo,iron deficiency and lower back ache being their sidekicks. I was juggling the things on my plate so as to not getting deficient and affected by these lifestyle diseases…….but it was a futile effort. Even after my sincerest efforts I could not balance out my diet on my own. I started gaining weight and losing energy followed by bouts of IBS issues. Also having a family history of Heart disease and Diabetes I didnt want to take chances with my health. Thats when I contacted Meenu. Having seen excellent results with Meenus diet on a very dear friend and her recommendation I chose to go on a diet plan with Meenu. Her recommendations and diet plans structured around my health conditions really helped me correct not only my medical conditions but also make them a way of life. Her guidance , support and motivation helped me lose 7 kgs over a 10 week period and brought my cholesterol levels back to normal. Now the food choices suggested by Meenu are going to stay with me forever.
A casual walk to the Annual medical check-up, lands up with a surprise of ‘High Cholestrol level’ – wondering if the results were accurate and could this happen to someone who is just 64 kgs and jogging routinely.
Shared this with my wife and without informing me she booked an appointment with Meenu (one of the few right things she did ). The thought of going to dietician irritated me with images of boiled food and leaf vegetables and recommendation on life style changes that might be difficult to follow.
Cut 2 – I was with Meenu in her office explaining about my routines and eating habits – turns out beside my active exercising routine the choices of my food and Eating patterns were quite unhealthy and erratic to say the least. Started a 3-month program with her which included changes to my palate and eating pattern – over the period of 3 months went thru 3 different diet routines given by her. This had an immediate impact – within first few weeks, my weight came down further and at the same time I was feeling quite active and healthy. The best part was the choices of food given were something which I can easily follow repeatedly. Over the period of 3 months, eating consciously and healthy food (does not mean salads all the time) became a happy habit. The Lipid profile results were excellent and back to a very healthy state.
Thanks, Meenu for institutionalizing this positive change!
I started off with Meenu’s diet plan after having problems shedding weight, acidity related issues and reducing cholesterol levels. Meenu’s diet and exercise regimen has given me a more disciplined approach to food. I successfully managed to shed 6 kgs in four months considering my chaotic work schedule. I could see a significant change for the better in my acidity related issues. I no longer binge eat and I am more conscious of my intake. Meenu was prompt in following up even though I was always tardy in updating her. Bunch of thanks to Meenu! I couldn’t have done it without you!
My journey with Meenu Ma’am began at a totally unexpected note when my wife surprised me by scheduling a meeting with her. Here I was meeting a nutritionist for the very first time thinking I’ll be put on a series of cant-eat-this, workout for hours in the gym, don’t go for social outings etc. but to my surprise, she told me I could eat everything, as long as I ate with wisdom and in moderation. We started with baby steps, understanding what works for my body and what doesn’t via weekly meal plans. She was patient with me and kept track of my progress – even if I slacked somewhere, she’d bring me back on schedule.
Every day would begin reporting previous day’s weight, deviations and work out details.
This started giving me a sense of where I am going wrong and how can I correct my mistakes in my meals during the day. The meal plans were simple (all ingredients could be found in our kitchen), innovative and also introduced many new recipes in my life. The improved nutrition was evident from the energy I felt during the day and to my surprise I was actually relishing my food!
For all this duration Ma’am helped me learn how to connect with my body and listening to it before anything else, I continued my hectic corporate work-life, travel, festivals, parties and yet losing weight. She taught me how my weekly eating outs, my vacays wouldn’t bring back the lost weight by making smart choices, efficient workout and never to starve myself. So yes, now I can also say that one can lose weight, get healthier and yet can still lead a normal life and have all the fun!
As no change is simple in life and I think changing food habits are among the toughest, my mentor Meenu Ma’am was my guiding star and a strong pillar of support in my journey, her motivating talks gave me the much-needed push on my low days. Getting in shape not only boosted my health and confidence, but it also reflected in my annual medical tests this year. It was good to see myself fit 6 years old pair of jeans and receive compliments from friends and family members for my transformation. I can’t thank Meenu Ma’am enough for making this possible.
I first came to know about Meenu through Facebook. I contacted her about 5 months back and was very eager to start off on the program. My first meeting with her was quite insightful and there was no pressure whatsoever from her side to sign up instantly. She took effort to explain various options. Since I was only a little overweight and being in my early fifties, Meenu set very realistic weight loss goals for me.
I am happy to share that during the 3-month weight loss program, I lost about 2.5 kgs and definitely some inch-loss. I am very happy with this achievement as not only did I improve my diet and added new variety but also managed to overcome bloating issues. Her diet plan allowed me my usual weekend eat-outs. Honestly, I was quite shocked to see that unlike other diet plans, there was a fair bit of carbs in my plan which makes the plan more doable and sustainable in the longer run. She emailed my diet plan for 3-weeks at one go and would modify as per target requirements. This made the plan more bite-size and not overwhelming to follow. Meenu was always available on WhatsApp for a quick check anytime I was not sure of what to eat while eating out. Not only that, she also would suggest alternative for food items that were not to my liking.
Finally, while discharging me from the 3-month program, Meenu assured me that even though the program was over I could still lose/maintain my weight by just following her suggestions.
Thankyou Meenu for your guidance and encouragement.
I was struggling with my weight but after meeting Meenu I learned to be more mindful of my food choices and the importance of portion control. She is a real motivator and very rigorous in her follow ups. She continuously checked my diet and monitored my progress. Im really grateful to Meenu for getting me back to my ideal weight and into my desired clothes ..Thank you Meenu
Well today I’m going to share my weight loss journey with you all. However, before I start, to share with you why I underwent this. 4 years back my medical report indicated that my cholesterol is high and my thyroid is not normal immediately after that my family doctor prescribed medicines which I continued taking it recently. Though, it may not sound life threatening or you may not realize in start but slowly-slowly your body starts tiring and more importantly even before you realize you become habitual of this new medicated lifestyle and everything seem normal after that. When this happens, I tell you my friends you start bluffing yourself saying “It’s Okay! so what everyone is having medication for this or that.”
True Realization of yourself is a must, same as rest of all I never realized that I’m obese. Later in 2017 I started realizing that in what a bad shape I’m in. I was not able to enjoy with my kid in any game, my body was tired all the time, body size grew exponentially and it seem that I’m going into hibernation..hehehe. I’m big fan of Cricket, not only love to watch but an active player as well. During one match in just 15 minutes my body was extremely tired, my breathing became heavy though I was at ground trying to continue but my body isn’t. And after that worst happened, I collapsed on the ground and remained unconscious for almost 30-45 minutes. That was the day when I realized I’ve do something about it, I just can’t accept the fact that I’m obese, medications are now part of my life and just simply give up.
Though I was determined but I didn’t wanted to just search one random diet plan from google and start following, or I just get inspired with some fancy weight loss success story from internet. In order to follow right and best path one must establish ‘What you want to achieve?’. I was certain that I just don’t to lose weight but actually I want to get Healthy, which many people don’t realize and that’s the reason their path chosen may not help them to achieve success.
Having said that, fortunately I came to know about Dr. Meenu Agarwal and heard few of her conversations on TV as well as on web. Decided to give it a try I booked an appointment and while awaiting for my turn a lot of things was going in my mind. How much less I’ve to eat, what will I do if I feel hungry still, etc.etc. Honestly, how wrong I was, was very clear in first 10 mins when I spoke with her. Whole concept and meaning of diet plan was changed in my mind and I realized that how wrong I was to assume that diet plan means ‘eat less’ but in actual it’s completely opposite instead diet plan means ‘eating right’. Most important thing that you just can’t wake up one morning and adapt to whatever random plan available on internet, it’s a MUST that you visit nutritionist because every diet plan must be based on your body structure and metabolism.
Best results can only be achieved if you have best mentor, that’s what exactly happened with me. Dr. Meenu showed a lot of patience and based on my body structure, medication, metabolism she prepared a diet plan for me. Very first thing she made me realized is to set a goal, where she helped me to set a goal not to just lose weight instead get healthy in order to get rid of chronic medication in next 1 year. When first time I saw the plan I was in doubt whether it will really help, plan is actually to eat everything which I’m eating right now with just slight changes such as eating after every 2 hours, drinking water before starting a meal so that you never end up overeating and most importantly to start enjoying my food by getting rid of TV & Mobile while having meal. Best guidance what I saw from Dr. Meenu is that she will be with you throughout your journey unlike rest where plan is the output whether one achieves the goal or not doesn’t matter. This was not the case with Dr. Meenu and I really admire her for being a true coach. She ensured that we not only diligently follow the plan but also ourselves feel the priority of it.
I still remember clearly the very first day of my journey I weighed 102.8 Kgs, disappointed but not lost hope and started the path of betterment. I use to update my daily empty stomach weight with Dr. Meenu so that she can adjust the plan accordingly which is a wonderful thing. Because it may happen that your body doesn’t respond to same way as expected when you initially start the plan. Thus continuous monitoring is imperative and Dr. Meenu hand held us excellently. During this journey I realized how simple tricks can do wonders, such as drinking adequate quantity of water, having your meals timely, etc. Other most important aspect of dieting is exercise where we all do have a big illusion that we had to exercise a lot but you know what I hardly did any exercise instead just brisk walk on daily basis of around 7-8 Km.
As the time passed, not only I started losing weight but I started feeling energetic and more active. At cricket field I was able to run without huffing and puffing, I was able to spend entire day on field without getting tired whereas previously I was not able to stand continuously for even 15-20 minutes. With this continuous uphill progress in just span of 6 months I underwent medical examination and that was the day I was most joyous came out of clinic after many long years. My cholesterol was normal, my thyroid was normal too. My whole body shown is good shape in the report. This is the best result one could ever want, and even before completion of 1 year I managed to get rid of regular medication successfully. After 1 year I’m weighing 85.2 Kgs which is 17.6 Kgs lower from where I started, importantly I proudly say that I don’t take any chronic medication or supplements now, I proudly say that I’m Healthy.
In the end, just want to say that don’t lose weight to fight against numbers instead lose weight to get Healthy. Lastly, don’t fall to any diet plan which are available on internet meet the right Coach who can guide you, have vision on what you want to achieve not what he/she wants to achieve and most importantly Be With You throughout the journey of your Success.
STAFY FIT & HEALTHY!!
The Program is quite nice with not a huge pressure on the body and is relatively easy to do. With a bit of self discipline , it can work well on the body. I found it useful and had good initial results. Challenge is to maintain momentum but that’s a individual discipline challenge. Definitely recommend this over other crash diets that’s are available on the internet.
Losing weight and being healthy is a battle we all are fighting at some point or the other in our lives.I struggled for the last 2-3 years trying to out exercise by weight and being healthy. I tried everything from long walks, low carb food with super frustration that nothing was working. Meenus guidance , routine follow up and discipline got me good results. I cant thank you enough for helping me achieve what I wanted . You are a constant source of motivation an guidance through your face book page and always available for support to her clients.
