1. What differentiates Dt. Nidhi Nigam from others in the Nutrition Industry

Weight loss isn’t about magical plans or crash diets that result in sudden and unhealthy loss of weight. That’s where Dt. Nidhi Nigam steps in, with a strong focus on a healthy lifestyle, eating habits and a holistic weight management programme. She invests extensive time to understand the client’s psyche, medical issues, body composition, and nutritional requirements to help them combat their weight issues. These three aspects go hand-in-hand and help in designing a plan best suited for the individual. Her diet philosophy is two pronged, with equal emphasis on nutrition and maintenance. She also helps her clients emotionally by talking and counseling them when they feel low about dieting or self-esteem or their body.

2. Do I have to give up eating all that I like in the weight loss program

Not necessarily, as Nidhi’s programmes stress on striking the right balance. She personally does not believe in giving up any food item forever and it isn’t possible to keep away from a craving for too long. So instead of starving your body of what it needs or likes, she conditions clients to eat and balance what they like in a healthier way.

3. Can I achieve my ideal weight in a month for my wedding?

4. Will I be able to quit smoking? Is it okay to smoke in your programme?

8. Obesity runs in my genes, do you think I can still lose weight?

The genetics theory does not really hold true in today’s scenario for weight problems.

Nidhi helps her clients by working on all these parameters and getting them to shift to a healthier lifestyle.
