Answer: With the help of my knowledge, expertise I’ve been able to provide the best achievable results in less than 30 days that even clients are amazed. But They lacked consistency. As a genuinely concerned fitness consultant this provoked me to sleepless nights. But today my clients are able to achieve the desired consistency. All I did was I’ve improvised the program by challenging them every single day! Now it’s a never-ending journey.
5. How do an adult’s nutritional needs differ from a child’s nutritional needs?
Answer: May it be an adult or a child, Nutritional needs cannot be generalised as they vary from person to person. As a breastfeeding kid, it gets all the vital nutrients from mothers’ milk itself. Once the kid stops breastfeeding, it is introduced to unhealthy lifestyle promoted by the society. Kids being in their growing age require the best nutrient for their optimum growth whereas Adults need the same to maintain themselves and avoid early ageing
Neither less every individual need optimum nutrients in adequate amounts.
6.What meal plan would you create for a vegetarian? Can you explain your reasoning for each food choice?
Answer: Being a vegetarian /nonvegetarian is a choice and I respect that. Regardless every individual need First Class Protein Sources in their diet. Thus, the food choices for a vegetarian would be Paneer, Sprouts, Complex Carbs, Etc.
7. What’s your go-to breakfast on days when you know you’ll need lots of energy? What foods do you recommend to your clients who complain about breakfast not filling them up?
Answer: The quote Stands true: “Sunday hoy ya Monday roz khao Ande”. Its Healthly, Its fulfilling, loaded with minerals and vitamins and is enough to provide you energy throughout the day. Same applies to my clients. I ask them to put some extra efforts and make variety of recipes including eggs.
8. What metrics do you use to track your client’s nutritional progress?
Answer: Difference in the weight is ideally considered worldwide. But there are various important parameters that should be taken into consideration such as inch loss. Note that as long as the difference is or isn’t visible, weight is just a number.
Energy level, skin improvement, good metabolism, gut health are some other important points.
9. Can you tell me about a client case that you’re really proud of? What was their situation and how did you help them achieve their nutritional goals?
Answer: Okay, so one of my clients was struggling for 5 years to have a baby and her goal was to improve her hormone levels so she can conceive and maintain pregnancy. She has Mensural cycle issue and had only 3-4 cycles / year. Shocking isn’t it. For Almost 5 years she almost had been to every doc possible and almost invested lacks of amount
I was introduced to her by some mutual friend and she decided to give this a try. She agreed to commit at least for 3 month on my advice. My strategic planning and of course her dedication worked really well and within 1.5 moth her menses occurred without any medications. Not only that but by the end of three month she conceived. It was that moment filled with the tears of joy. No words could explain it.
Furthermore, she continued with the routine, able to sustain the delivery throughout and successfully delivered 2 baby girls. Yes, Twins!
The best experience which ill never forget for life.
Their bleesings have been with me uptill now and will never let me down.
I’m really glad that I’ve been provided with this opportunity. Thank you so much.
