Getting on a weight-loss journey is a big decision. And not an easy one. Around 67% of the people who start, give up midway! And more than 80% of those who do make it to their targetted weights, cannot maintain and stay that way! Weight loss is not an easy journey. There are many challenges that you may be worried about. Many questions you may be wanting to ask the weight-loss dietician you are planning to sign up with.
Do you have these 10 worries about your weight-loss?
1. Will I have to remain hungry?
Will you put me on detox / liquid / crash diets?
2. Will you expect me to make big changes, in my food-habits and lifestyle?
3. Will I have to stop eating things that I like?
4. Will I have to join a gym or do workouts?
5. Will I have to buy any supplements / powders / pills?
6. I have a health-issue. Will I be able to still lose weight?
7. How much time will I take to get to my targetted weight?
8. I am a working professional. Will I be able to follow your plans?
9. Will I be meeting you or your assistant?
10. What about post weight-loss, weight gain?
If you have any of the above questions... don't worry... you're not alone.
Stay with me, and you will know that...
...you can get to your targetted weight... look good and feel great... and remain that way even afterwards... without fearing failure!
But who am I and why should you listen to me?
I, Sheetal Patel, founder of Nea Zoi Consulting - The Weight Management Clinic, am a qualified dietitican with more than 25 years of professional-experience. I have worked with top-notch hospitals, gyms, health-centres and consultants... and helped hundreds of people, including many celebrities, lose weight and regain their health. With my almost 3 decades of practice, seeing weight-loss successes and failures of many kinds and after coming across almost every kind of question from weight-loss aspirants, I devised my approach:
It's an approach that answers all questions and doubts of a person going on a weight-loss journey. So let me help you answer each of your weight-loss questions and doubts:
#1: Will I have to remain hungry and go crazy?
Doable Dieting is all about understanding you, your eating habits, your lifestyle and devising a customized programme that fits into your lifestyle. No going hungry and crazy.
#2: Will your diet-plans include regular, home-made foods or will you expect me to make big changes?
Yes! My customized diet-plans will include regular, home-made food. And no! No making big/drastic changes that you cannot sustain, while dieting. And afterwards too! No cooking separately for you. No exotic and expensive ingredients. Only little tweaks... with full understanding and acceptance from you. Small changes that will get you your results.
#3: Will I have to stop all the things that I like?
Well. You can't be eating all that you have been and expecting weight-loss results! However, that also doesn't mean giving up all that you like eating (and know them to add calories). Included in your plans, will be things that you like. In quantities and frequencies that will not derail your weight-loss efforts. Like, once a week "cheat diets". I fully appreciate you would be having a social life; would need to go out for lunches, dinners and parties; and would like to binge once in a while. I understand that and will factor that in.
#4: Will I have to join a gym or do workouts?
If you like it, that would be great. But if you're not the gym going kind, going on walks would also suffice. You will, however, need to do some physical activity aimed at weight-loss. So be ready for that! Trust me, when it becomes part of your routine and you see the results in terms of weight-loss, more energy, better sleep etc... you will not want to miss a day!
#5: Will I have to buy any supplements / powders / pills?
Not at all! We have all the necessary immunity boosters, anti-ageing substances, anti-depressants and antacids in our regular food items, to help us get to our desired weight... in a scientific... natural way. There is no need for health-destroying shortcuts.
#6: I have a health-issue. Will I be able to still lose weight?
Many of my clients have health-conditions/comorbodities like PCOS/PCOD, Diabetes, Thyroid etc. They are in fact advised to attempt weight-loss as it greatly helps in such conditions. Whatever your health-condition, you would specifically be taken care of.
#7: How much time will I take to lose weight?
Well that depends on how much you need to or want to lose. But the following chart will serve you as a guide:
|Weight Loss in Kilos||Duration Required|
|5 Kilos||2 Months|
|7 Kilos||3 Months|
|10 Kilos||4 Months|
|15 Kilos||6 Months|
#8: I am a working professional. Will I be able to follow your plans?
88% of my clients are working professionals. With extremely busy lifestyles. And yet they are able to succeed. Because besides their will and commitment to make things work, I help them according to their specific situations. My clients successes.. your success... is my success. It's as simple as that!
#9: Will I be meeting you or your assistant?
Only me! And what's more - without any restrictions or conditions attached. No paying extra per sitting. Nothing. Zilch. Weight loss is a journey, where your dietician has to be your partner and your support. Besides your regular follow-ups, sometimes you may want to know what you can eat at a party or a dinner you are at. Or you may just need a dose of motivation. At all such times, I am just a phone-call away for you. I"ll be your partner in your journey, in the truest sense!
#10: How do I maintain my weight afterwards?
With me, weight-loss will be a life-style change for you! Together, we will work to make this journey about... your health... your vitality... a new you! We will plan your weight-loss to be enjoyable and your life afterwards not seem like a compromise. You will learn to live a healthy life naturally. NEA-ZOI ("New Life" in Greek)... that’s not just my brand-name... but also my attitude.
Note: The weight-loss with a dietician success-formula, actually boils down to 3 things!
#1. The dietician's weight-loss approach.
#2. The dietician's commitment to her client's success.
#3. The dietician's charges.
The dietician's weight-loss approach. My "Doable-Dieting" methodology.
No going hungry. No going crazy. No making big/drastic changes that you cannot sustain, while dieting. And afterwards too! No cooking separately for you. No exotic and expensive ingredients. No supplements / powders / pills. No health-destroying shortcuts. But a customized approach, tailormade to your specific needs and circumstances! With a commitment to your success!
The dietician's commitment to her client's success. My commitment to your success.
I will work with you one-to-one and will hand-hold you to your targetted weight-loss. I will be your partner-in-journey, personally accessible to you without any restrictions or conditions. Your success is my commitment. And my commitment is also proven with the way I charge!
The dietician's charges. My pay-per-kilo charges.
The weight you want to lose, is what you pay me for. Rs. 1,200 per kg. So, if you want to lose 5 kilos, you pay me only Rs. 6,000. If your target is 10 kilos, you pay only Rs. 12,000. And so on. You get the idea, don't you? And you know what? This approach works out as a money-saver for my clients.
Save almost 40-50% while reaching your weight-loss target.
With my "pay-per-kilo" approach, my clients save from 40-50% of what they would have otherwise spent. 10 kilos @ Rs. 12,000, for example, works out much cheaper than the time-bound packages of most dieticians. Also because with me, you additionally get a "double-period" assurance. Making it possble for you to reach your goal, without the need to renew or rejoin any (time-bound) package. You just pay once. For the total kilos you want to lose. Nothing more till you reach you goal. Because...
You get 2X the time you will need to get to your target, from me.
Let's suppose you want to target a 10 kilo weight-loss. Now that would typically take 4 months. But my commitment to you would be 8 months. Just 2X of the typical time. Without anything extra.
So you get my guidance and even the post weight-loss maintenance from me for the same period it would take for you to reach your target. This is how it works:
|Weight Loss in Kilos||Duration Required
|5 Kilos||2 Months||2 Months||2+2=4 Months|
|7 Kilos||3 Months||3 Months||3+3=6 Months|
|10 Kilos||4 Months||4 Months||4+4=8 Months|
|15 Kilos||6 Months||6 Months||6+6=12 Months|
Get 100% results.* At 40-50% savings!
Get to your targetted weight... look good and feel great... and remain that way even afterwards... without fearing failure... or overspending!
So why not get in touch with me now?
You’ll love your journey with me...as many of my clients have.
