Isha Lost 33kgs in 6 months thanks to WFH’s Nutrition and Dietitian

Updated: Dec 5, 2021


When you are battling excess kilos, in addition to the rude and unwanted opinion of the people around you, it is your own lethargy and the difficulty in performing everyday tasks with ease that make your life really difficult.

When 25-year-old Isha realised that it was getting really difficult to do even the smallest chores, she decided to change her lifestyle for good. Just 6 months after joining WFH she dropped from 90 kg to 53 kg. Isha’s weight loss journey is an example that you can achieve anything, once you put your mind to it.


The reason that Motivates weight loss


I had been fighting the battle with obesity for quite a time until one day I decided to take a closer look at myself in the changing room. It happened when I had gone to buy clothes for myself. I don’t know what happened that day but I was shattered by the way I looked in the mirror.


I realised that I needed to change my lifestyle completely to get back in shape. To begin the same, I completely stopped eating junk food and sweetened beverages from that day only.


What is the most difficult part about being overweight?


As I gained the extra kilos, I noticed that I was becoming increasingly sluggish and lethargic. Furthermore, even simple tasks like going grocery shopping appeared to be extremely difficult. I also began to avoid an upward incline on the road because it seemed like too much work.


However, the most difficult part was all the unsolicited comments on my body weight from friends and strangers. To overcome these problems I focused more on my exercises and build my stamina


Starting Phase and procedure of transformation journey


To get to know your body, you must first measure your BMI and TDEE. This package contains all of the features and calculators. The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a method for calculating body mass that takes into account height, weight, and age.


And TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure), which estimates how many calories you burn per day while taking into account your physical activity throughout the day. All of this seemed very complicated at first, but I soon discovered that all I needed to do was enter some basic information about myself, and it would provide me with all of the data relevant to my goal. Everything is covered, from daily caloric intake to fat-burning workouts.


Diet followed


My meals were designed to be low in calories because my goal was to lose fat and weight. My diet usually was very high in protein. I had some food preferences, and the WFH dietician and nutritionist were so supportive that they planned every meal around my preferences and needs.


A small bowl of nuts, oats, and seeds with 2 spoons of yoghurt was my breakfast. My lunch included grilled vegetables, veg soup, and a bowl of lentils. My evening snack consisted of a plate of watermelon, strawberries, or two apples and two bananas. Salad with olives, paneer, or poached eggs without oil was my dinner.


Workout Followed to achieve the goal


I work out for two hours every day, almost every day. I worked out for an hour in the morning and another hour in the evening. As my stamina improved, I gradually replaced my morning workout routine with Yoga and stretching exercises. And an evening workout consisting of a combination of weight training, cardio, and CrossFit.


What difficulties were you facing during the transformation journey?


I had to give up laziness and some bad eating habits as part of my transformation. I made it a point to cut out all white sugar and flour from my diet. I also began exercising and made it a point to eat only during the 8-hour period. Along with that, I began prioritising my sleep and believe that after a long day of heavy exercise, your body needs to rest and rejuvenate itself.


How do you stay motivated?


Motivation comes from within for someone like me, and seeing the changes and gaining knowledge really helps. Seeing my results and how I'm getting fitter and fitter every day really motivated me.

Lessons learnt from the transformation


My major lesson from this journey is that if you can overcome your sheer laziness, there is nothing in this world that you cannot achieve.
