Hi. My journey for weight loss goes back a few years and that is when I met Dt Pradnya Padhye on the recommendation of my acquaintances. She is very good at making you realise the importance of good health without being pushy. She knows very well that different people take different time to make the modifications and she is very patient when it comes to this. Apart from weight loss, I also realised that diet is about eating the right food and the importance of overall nutrition in our daily lives. However you enjoy the benefits of her easy to follow diet plans only if your compliance is good ( which is not a problem most of the times 😀). She and her team at *BalcalNutrefy* are always available for any doubts that you have. If I ever have to consult a nutritionist or a Dietitian, it will always be Dt Pradnya without a doubt.
I am a marathon runner. Despite of running and core workout, I was unable to reduce my weight which was around 75 and height (5,10'). My aim was to reduce waist size and weight. I tried many things to reduce my weight but all in vain. So decided to consult Balcal Nutrefy. I did a one month course and reduced more than 5kgs and waist by 2inches(that's unbelievable but yes I did it all). First week started with no oil intake and they actually educated me about what is balance diet (protein, fiber, carbohydrates). It was a built up for what's coming over next week weeks. Second and third week was more intense with sprouts, brown rice and soup playing a big roll. The hardest was the fourth week which was a full vegetable diet. It was intense but I never felt hungry. Diet plan was well devised that it was not exhausting at all. Throughout the month, I kept my workout regime same. Balcal kept in touch with me, solved my every doubts. I strongly believe only trick to reduce weight is to faithfully follow your diet plan and have self control on your craving. Thank you for amazing diet plan.

I have taken advice about how to wean my child the right way and her inputs are very enlightening and I am sure will help me build good eating habits over a period.Thanks for everything.
