Excellent service and my diet, effective and very satisfactory thnkyou.... Dt. Raminderprachi28 July, 20185.0
Lost 7 kgs in 1 and half monthAbout
I Have been a dietitian since 1992. I completed my post-graduation in dietetics and public health nutrition from Institute of home economics, Delhi university. From that time, I have served as a consultant dietitian and nutritionist in more than 25 different hospitals, primarily working as a therapeutic nutritionist (diet treatment and nutrition during illness and also as hospital dietary services advisor and manager. During this time, I gained a lot of experience and insights into the problem faced by patients and their families in regard to the diet management during and after illness. After spending more than 20 years in hospitals and therapeutic nutrition I have been an advisor to various nutritional programs for infants, children and expecting mothers. During all these experiences, I found that we as a society lack in nutritional literacy.I Believe in 100% home cooked diets with no starvation. My diet aims at overall nutritional correction and healthy lifestyle change.

She is excellent at her job. She has helped me and my family in getting healed and achieving better shape of overall health and wellness. I followed her guidance for 2 months and can see the difference in me without doing any exercise. I am in better shape now and didn't gain any weight even after the program got over 4 months ago. My father was diagnosed with some neurological issues due to undiagnosed history of BP, cholesterol and leveler problems. She suggested a plan for him considering the reports and continuously monitored the progress. My father is now fit and fine with her suggest diet plan and minimal medicines. My sister had PCOD issues and we tried many options of Homeopathy, Allopathy, and Ayurveda treatments but nothing delivered any consistent result. She kept gaining weight and faced lot of other health issues. From last 3 months she is following her plan and her period is regular and there is good improvement in her weight and overall health. From my experience, I can say that your body is what you eat. Your food and lifestyle can help you live active, healthy and joyful. I am lucky that I found right mentor as Neha. I would surely recommend her if you want to follow a healthy lifestyle and be in your perfect shape of health.About

When I started with shimpy mam. I was circumspect as I have never focused upon consulting a dietician. I thought it's only work out that can enable us reduce weight. But I am here to narrate my beautiful journey with your Diet Lounge. When I joined in I was 91 n I got regular diet plans etc. I followed it strictly. Sometimes due to some family outing, I did have to deviate. But as a matter of fact, after 1 month and 1 week. Means when I was about to receive my 6th plan. I was standing at 81 kgs. I nearly lost 10 kgs in a month. Now I know what to eat n what not, she has been really helpful and professional. I hope to loose more in the near future.

I'm sure how any woman would feel after 5 years of marriage and an year old kid, being told that we can't imagine you are married, ELATED!! This is only one of the compliments that I have started getting ever since I have hired the services of Nutriapt. Effortlessly, I have been made to sail through this journey of maternity weight loss. I really love the tips in general, exercise tips, the diets (never imagined vegetarian food can have so much of variety and easy to cook at the same time) and the entire counselling and personal touch provided by Manpreet all through. Now, I love to love with my new found self, cook for myself all the fresh foods and not treat myself as a dumping ground for stale food, because it is all so easy, enjoying and worthy for myself. Much thanks to Nutriapt.supriya talwar6 April, 20175.0
Have been following Nutriapt for close to 5 months. Have found the diet plans very good taking care of all round nutrition needs. Also the recipes sent by Manpreet are tasty and it's very easy to source the ingredients. My husband and I are both following the diet plans of Nutriapt and here I would also like to mention that Manpreet takes special care to see that our meal plans are more or less similar, hence making it very easy for me to cook. I have to also congratulate her on her punctuality in calling us. If she says 3pm , Monday she would call, she is not a second late. This is a regular follow up done, every week, in which she discusses in detail about your prior week and takes into account all changes you would want incorporated in your diet. We are both satisfied with our weight loss and the services provided by Manpreet and her team. A big thanks to them.About

Hi Everyone, I would highly recommend Mrs Priyanka to everyone for their dietary requirements. She is a master of her subject and knows what is ideal for a particular person. I have lost around 7 kgs after following her 5 week diet plan. She was always available on call for any kind of special requests and was very polite. I believe as consumers of any sort of service apart from the results, courtesy and politeness should be most important criterion in selecting any service provider. My weight reduced from 93.5 kgs to 86.5 kgs within the 5 week period. I had to stop going to gym as well, due to certain personal commitments, hence the entire weight loss can be attributed to the diet chart prepared by Mrs Priyanka. Therefore, a well deserving 5 star rating for her. Thanks Priyanka for your sincere efforts! read more

Hiring Guidefor Dieticians and Nutritionists
Nutritionists in Delhi NCR
Any Delhite will have noticed a rise in obesity over the past few years among the city’s residents. If you think back to the 1990s of your childhood or the first decade of the 21st century, you will remember most people in the colony being quite fit and healthy. But as time progressed, more and more people seemed to be putting on weight. Binge eating and surviving on junk food now seems to be the norm. The fact that Delhi has some of the tastiest snacks in India also adds to the problem. All these reasons make a nutritionist necessary for us to get back our health. At UrbanClap, we bring to you a selection of some of the best dieticians in Delhi who can help you change your diet plan and revitalise your health. We will look at some of the top reasons why you need a nutritionist, common diet plans, understand how diet can cure health issues and things you ought to keep in mind while working with a nutritionist.
Get the Right Advice: Adopting a healthy lifestyle is more than just going to the gym regularly. If you have been following a traditional diet, drastic changes may be required. You can go online, ask your friends, or talk to your colleagues at work to find the secret formula that worked wonders for them. More often than not, you are likely to be thoroughly confused once you have read online articles and heard everyone’s advice. The amount of conflicting information is bad enough to give you second thoughts about changing your diet. If you type in ‘nutritionist near me’ you are likely to get dietitians who can help you get the right advice. You can also fill our easy-fill form to get a professional nutritionist to help you out.
Understand the Concept of Eating Right: A healthy diet is about more than balancing calories. If you do manage to come up with a plan of your own, it will likely have other shortcomings. Further, it is not always possible to buy the kind of food you need at a local market. Popular low-carb diets you may find online will recommend food that you will be hard-pressed to find in India, even in metros like Delhi. And even if you find them, you may not know how to cook or prepare them the ‘right’ way. Most food is edible if you boil it in water long enough though it is unlikely to be palatable even after adding copious amounts of spices. Does adopting a healthy diet mean sacrificing good taste forever? Is adopting a healthy lifestyle really this difficult? Thankfully, the answer to both these questions is ‘No’.
Analyse Your Current Diet: Consulting a qualified nutritionist can help you get through all the stages of changing your eating habits and even other lifestyle changes. The early period of determining what kind of changes you need to make, and even the realization that a transition is a necessity is usually referred to as the “contemplation” stage by experts. At this junction, a personal dietitian can help you analyse your current diet and figure out what it lacks or contains an excess of.
Get the Motivation: Even general discussions about how a healthy diet can help you to achieve your goals can have an impact on your decision about “going healthy.” Perhaps the most important discussion you can have with your nutritionist at this stage is about the kinds of food you are not particularly fond of. This will help you avoid the potential pitfall of adopting a diet you absolutely detest. A diet you do not like to eat will be quickly abandoned which means a lot of wasted effort and sends you back to square one.
Find the Right Diet and Exercise Plans for Yourself: Next up – the preparation stage. Simple as it sounds, this is where the root cause of most failed diets lie. As we noted earlier, there is simply too much conflicting information floating around. A qualified dietary nutritionist can help you navigate your way through this quagmire and come up with a plan that will suit you perfectly. You will be talking about concrete goals instead of your desires like you did in the previous stage. This will also let you account for the other aspects (aside from dietary changes) that you intend to change or transform in your life. These may include your gym routines or other fitness activities like Yoga, your work-life balance, and ensuring you have time for other pursuits including work. Alone, preparing for such seemingly drastic changes can be overwhelming. With a qualified dietitian to take care of a major part of the work, you will be set up for success.
Help You Get Started: The next stage comes while you are implementing your new plans. A nutritionist can help you monitor your current achievements and make alterations to your diet plan as required. It is important to be flexible during this implementation stage. Rarely does a plan come together perfectly – you may have underestimated your goals or you may be overachieving. Consequently, changes in your diet will help ensure you get adequate nutrition while embarking on what is most likely a fairly demanding new schedule. After the first few weeks, you will find your groove and your body will adapt to your new, healthier lifestyle. At this point, it is necessary to revisit your initial goals. Check your progress and compare your achievements with your predictions from the original plan. You will find that you need to alter your plans to some degree. Be sure to consult your registered nutritionist to ensure your new diet reflects your new goals.
Sticking to the Plan: As you grow accustomed to the process, adapting to and adopting minor changes in your lifestyle and diet will come naturally. At this stage, it is about perseverance – you will need to maintain the new healthy lifestyle that you have adopted. This maintenance stage is crucial since it is easy to fall back to old habits and lose months of progress in a matter of days. At some stage, your progress will hit a wall and not show any improvements. This results in feelings of self-disappointment, lack of trust in your own efforts and disillusionment. Such self-defeating thoughts plague the minds of the best athletes and as they would tell you, one should not feel discouraged. Regular consultations with a personal dietitian to track your progress will help you stay motivated and eager. The registered nutritionist may also be able to put you in touch with a support group that can help you weather the ups and downs that come with lifestyle changes.
As you learn more about the different types of diets, you may wonder if dietary changes can actually help cure diseases. This is a valid question since you probably hear a lot about it but much of that sounds too good to be true. We have tried to cut through the foggy information and bring you some facts about how diet can impact an existing condition, illness or disease.
Before your actual visit, you may be asked to keep a record of everything you eat. Do not forget to add any small snacks that you may have during this period. Also, do not simply estimate quantities. Be as precise as possible. Buy a kitchen scale if you must.
Like with any physician, be completely honest when answering questions about your food habits. You may feel guilty about eating a full tub of ice cream when you were trying to lose weight, but it should not stop you from disclosing it to the nutritionist.
If you plan to start exercising (or already do) along with making changes to your diet, do let the nutrition consultant know. They should be able to account for your additional needs.
Inform the nutritionist if you are allergic to some foods or dislike some particularly. They will be able to find alternatives that give you the same nutrients that you can still enjoy.
It is important to follow-up as you adapt to a new healthy lifestyle. As we had noted earlier, monitoring progress and making necessary changes to a plan is crucial for its long-term success.
Once you submit all the information (and depending on your choices), one or more of our qualified and registered dieticians will contact you within the next 24 hours. Transforming your life is easier than you may think. Do not let the magnitude of your eventual goal deter you from taking the first steps. Changing your diet and adopting healthy eating habits is the most substantial decision you can for your life.
With growing lifestyle diseases and more awareness of healthy eating even at old age, dietitians have become an invaluable part of our efforts to stay healthy and fit. These experts do what we try to do but are mostly unable to because of lack of information and to an extent, sustained effort. Most of us do not have an idea what suits us and end up eating what our family eats at home and what friends or colleagues eat outside. The pervasive presence of tasty junk food also ensures we do not stay on track despite best efforts. Let us look at some top reasons why you need to find a nutritionist in Delhi or elsewhere.
5 Most Common Diet Plans
What you eat has the largest impact on your health. No amount of exercise can overcome the ill effects of a bad diet. Nor will you be able to get into shape if you eat the wrong kinds of food. People who suffer from various diseases and conditions have to take extra care about what they eat. The quest to find the perfect diet could be quite difficult, as there are a lot of options. Here are the top five diets that are extremely popular among urban Indians intent on finding the best healthy lifestyle. Before you read any further, we would like to make one point very clear – NEVER start any of these diets without consulting a qualified and professional dietician or nutritionist.
Diet Plan # 1: Atkins
One of the earliest standardised nutrition plans, the Atkins diet has been around for decades now and even has its own website. In its original form, it was the centre of much controversy and falsely blamed for many nutrition deficiency diseases and symptoms in developed countries, even anorexia. The diet has been altered over the years and what you hear about now is the “New” Atkins. It works on the principle that lowering the intake of carbohydrates will force the body to burn its fat reserves for energy. On paper, this sounds great and initial results are always encouraging, if you can get past the nausea and constipation. However, this diet promotes eating processed meats, red meats, and a high salt intake. Even the Eco and Vegetarian alternatives have these problems. However, a more balanced version of the Atkins diet and a gradual supervised implementation could help you adopt it for a healthy lifestyle. The ability to include processed foods, which most other diets prohibit completely, does open up a lot of options for city-dwellers, particularly in metros like Delhi, where home-grown produce is a luxury.
Diet Plan # 2: Ketogenic
The Keto diet is similar to the Atkins in some ways. It relies on a high-fat, high-protein, low-carb plan. But consuming fat to lose weight? This seemingly paradoxical idea works by pushing the body to burn off its stored sugars and use the consumed proteins and fat for energy. This causes the digestive system to produce ketones and the body enters a state of ketosis. As long as you do not consume more calories than you can burn off, the diet will sustain your current weight. A slightly negative calorie balance can see you rapidly lose the weight from the excess fat in your body. Adapting to this diet is the single biggest challenge. In the first few weeks, nausea and indigestion are very common. Once your body gets accustomed, this diet is one of the easier ones to maintain. Going back to “normal” unhealthy food (aside from occasional indulgence) may actually make you sick so it becomes easier to continue with it. However, the Ketogenic diet was not designed keeping Indian foods in mind. Adapting the Keto diet to Indian cuisine can be a difficult prospect, particularly for vegetarians. However, with help from a qualified dietician or nutritionist, it is very much possible. Desi-Keto diets have been successfully adopted by many health enthusiasts.
Diet Plan # 3: Gluten-Free
More of a lifestyle choice than a diet plan, the gluten-free diet will cut out gluten containing products from your diet. This is a commonly prescribed diet for treating various diseases and conditions of the digestive system. Gluten is actually a “plant protein” that is found in grains like wheat, barley, rice, and rye, and the food made from them like bread and chappatis. Gluten is what makes most grains “sticky.” Gluten has been associated with a lot of digestive and nutrition related problems which made this diet very popular within a few years. However, adopting this diet can be a hassle for Indians since most of our staple foods naturally contain lots of gluten. However, cutting out gluten also reduces the amount of carbs while increase your fibre intake. This is the major beneficial aspect of the gluten-free diet. However, there are a few downsides. Self-planned Gluten-free diets could lack essential mineral nutrients like iron and calcium and important components of vitamin B like thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), folates (B9), etc. A professional dietary nutritionist could design a gluten-free diet that ensures that you do not miss out on any of the essential components of a healthy diet.
Diet Plan # 4: Alkaline
The alkaline diet is founded on the philosophy that most of our day-to-day foods produce too many acids in our body and must be replaced with alkaline foods instead to help restore its pH balance. However, experts will tell you that the body can regulate its own pH balance. Nonetheless, despite a somewhat questionable foundation, in practice, an alkaline diet does produce good results. This is largely because the diet forces you to cut down heavily on meats, processed wheat and other grains, dairy products, alcohol, caffeine, etc. It recommends that up to 80% of your diet consist of vegetables and fruits. The remaining is to be filled with nuts, legumes, and seeds. This is not just an abundance of ‘alkaline’ food but simply good eating advice.
