Our conversation was very friendly and inclusive. We discussed most of the issues related to my wrong counts quite well.
I am 53 years old and despite being into sports and other physical activities I have always been overweight. The main reason I feel is that I am a foodie and have this uncontrollable urge to eat whenever I see something edible.
Well, my IBS problem had started almost 4 years ago and I was really under the rain with multiple treatments but all on vain. I was anxious to go out or do things and somewhere I had accepted that this is the new normal. So struggling with this I thought I should consult a nutritionist just to see what's what and the only regret I have with this that why didn't I see her 4 years ago. I have never felt lighter and agile since the last four year, I feel good and am willing to go out and explore things again. I really thought things would never change but it did and it did for the best. So I would like to thank Geeta ma'am to give me a ray of hope again!
She is an excellent practitioner and nutritionist. I had visited her for consultation of my 3years old daughter who was really fussy in eating. She was able to help me very quickly with the issues that I presented to her in our first visit. Though she judiciously gave 1.5 hours just to sort out the diet of my daughter where in I gave her very less options which is preferred by the little.******* ** ***** ********** ******* *** ***** ***** *** *** **** ********* ****.
