I thought weight loss is a myth, till I met Dr. Nafisa. I had tried many diet plans and many suggestions for almost 4 years but none of them worked. Then i thought of giving a try with professional Dietitian and found First eat right rated well in many online reviews. I met the doctor and opted for 3 month support plan for 17k, which they have mentioned in their website too.
I started the diet and results were unbelievable. First 2 weeks I lost 4 kg and subsequently 1 KG every week consistently. I did have few non-diet weeks due to travel and gained weight in those weeks and compensated in the following weeks. My program ended on 9th Jan. I lost total 12 KGs in 3 months and I hardly felt that I was on a diet. Doc gives the food chart according to our food culture, so almost everything you love is included in the diet plan, which makes it easier to follow except when we are in front of some extremely tempting food items. 😂
During this whole program, I not only lost weight but also gained back my charm and looked 5 yrs younger (as per feedback from my friends 😋). Walking and proper food, really helped me gain back my confidence and fit in my old dresses.
Results were miraculous. Even the Dietitian supporting us in WhatsApp was very helpful and patient. Understood my cravings and situations and also she was well versed with different types of food we consume in our routine. That helped me clarify my doubts even faster. E.g in North Karnataka, we eat a chutney powder called Agasi chutney which is not familiar to other parts in india. But my Dietitian was aware of that and that gave me confidence about her study. 😃
Overall it was a great experience.
I even recommended 2 more friends of mine and they are seeing good results too. 😍
Dr.Nafeesa's diet was very helpful. I lost close to 15 Kgs over a period of 5 months. I had a lot of doubts in mind when i started. It took me a week to get adjusted to my new diet pattern but i followed it as per the suggession along with the workouts. The best part of it was that all that was prescribed was from what i could make at home on a regular basis based on our cuisine and culture & i think thats what made it sustainable as i didn't have to make anything different for myself. I come from a vegetarian south Indian family which has lots of festivals & sweets as part of the custom but i was guided on how to be able to balance it not having to give up completely too. I only wished the doctor was available over WhatsApp too but however she would patiently respond to our queries over mail within a few days. She has a team of nutritionists who would be available over WhatsApp for any day to day queries during working hours. Overall, helped me understand my body, it's nutritional requirement & how to manage it. I hope i'll be able to maintain this in the coming years too.
The doctor listens patiently and makes us understand the issue related to our physical fitness. She guides with the treatment which is required based on our health condition. Post maternity I gained weight, and I was able to lose approx 13 kg in 5 months... The motivation starts from the first week itself when the scales show reduced weight. One important thing, there is no medication involved,but dedication is a must. Doctor can only guide us, the activities we need to perform. Apart, the food advised is easily available and the diet is revised on monthly basis according to the body requirement. The team is easily accessible if any help is required. Even they are there to share the recipes if you don't know one. I am highly impressed. Now I have a good food habit and a better way to live. Although I want to lose another 5 kg... Let's see when I can attain it.
Very good experience with Dr. Nafeesa Imteyaz. She was very friendly and understanding and gave appropriate dietary instructions relevant to my health condition, which has been beneficial to me.
Dr. Nafeesa gave me the confidence of losing weight by eating my regular food rather than starving my self. I did succeed in losing 5.8 kgs in 3 months. Thank you Dr. Nafeesa.
The communication was very honest and friendly; and the doctor's approach and analysis of the problem was very scientific and realistic
The response was very nice
Understood everything what she explained .The doctor is very experienced and friendly
Don’t know where to start and how to thank Dr Nafeesa .She is simply awesome and a great Dr.i had weight issues and was not able to reduce inspite of walk and food control. Finally after all failed attempt I wanted to take help of dietician but was not sure about the right Dr. After going through online I found Dr Nafeesa and saw many positive reviews. Something I felt hard to believe yet went a head and got an appointment. I met Dr in Chennai tenampet branch.
Dr Nafeesa gave me ample time and listened to my issues very patiently ,still that smile on her face never came down even for a Sec. After analysing all my routine she came up with a diet which I couldn’t believe yet again because there was no fancy fruit r vegetable included and no fancy salad r food.Just normal home cooked food which every house hold follows but made sure to include every thing required for my body to function effectively .i must say I never craved for any sweet r snack in my entire diet period Nor I felt lack of energy, infact I had more energy to do workouts.i felt lot more better in terms of my health.I got my weight down from 90 kg to 78 during the course and slowly over a period of time got it to 73Kg..The best thing is u will not gain back all the lost weight if u follow a normal eating habit.Dnt have to starve to maintain ur weight and no need to get a fancy gym membership.Dr Nafeesa just asked me to walk and nothing more.
Again I am Starting a course with Dr Nafeesa to get my weight further down as I know only she can help me.She is an angle.Just follow her advise and everything will be taken care off and u will feel lot better.Right now I am in Singapore and still it’s easy to talk to Dr and get all the support required.
I also thank the entire first eat right team as they support u in your journey by answering all your doubts and trying to motivate u to stick to ur diet.
Thank u Dr Nafeesa soo much and my journey with u is going to be a Long one. Loads of love to the entire team of First Eat Right.
Thanks and Regards
I am so happy with the results- I lost 10kgs in 4 months.. I loved the fact the the diet plan suggested is within the foods I take in daily.. I did not have to force my self into eating any of the fancy things which are in the market lately.. I was able to eat rice daily and still manage to lose weight.. 😀 Will surely recommend First eat right to anyone looking for a healthy and sustainable weight loss..
This place deserves a 5 star review because before i came here i never believed in the importance of diet in one's life and i always felt i ate healthy and there is no need to modify my diet.However despite being health conscious and having a very disciplined exercise regime i was unable to shed the weight i had gained due to hormonal imbalance. I then made up my mind to see a dietitian who could recommend a diet which involves just home made food and no fancy supplements. That is when i came across - First eat right, it is the right place to go if you wish to lose weight in a healthy way. The diet plans are all customized to your eating habits and are easy to follow. Dr Nafeesa was extremely patient in hearing out my concerns and providing a well balanced diet plan comprising of normal home cooked meals and absolutely no fancy supplements. The team at first eat right are extremely responsive and helpful in answering all queries i went to them with during the whole program. I was successfully able to lose 12.5 kilos with the program. Definitely helps you learn to " first eat right " :)
