My name is SATYAJIT DASH, Professionally, a certified Sports nutritionist from ISSA, USA, with a specialization on LCHF WOE lifestyle. Apart from being a practicing Health & Nutrition (LCHF) Coach, I am a working corporate professional in Gurgaon. I have done my M.Sc. (Applied Geology) from IIT, Bombay & M.Tech (Mineral Exploration) from ISM, Dhanbad.
Between the years 2005 to 2010, I was leading the unhealthiest lifestyle, with the typical mindset of “Live life King-size” & “Kamate kisliye hain? Khane ke liye”. Junk food was a staple without having thought of quality or quantity. And without realizing I ended up earning a “Fatty liver condition”, not to mention I was already obese touching my pick, a 110 kg. during this period. When I used to discuss this with friends & colleagues, they used to tell me, “It’s OK to have fatty liver with this kind of lifestyle. Look, even people who do not drink, being vegetarian also are having fatty liver these days. And this logic somehow was not digested by me and I kept on exploring on how this can be sorted out.
After continuous 4 years with fatty liver condition, I started making all possible efforts such as cutting down my junk food, going to the GYM, walking, running, cycling, and swimming whenever possible. In this process I managed to reduce about 5 kg, before I again got stuck at 105 kg. Sometime during mid Sept-Oct 2015, while doing research on various weight management programs/ techniques, I came across this LCHF way of eating lifestyle, where one need not eat less, unlike the mainstream dieting method, but one eats below his/her basal metabolic calorie going with calorie deficit food.
I found this to be really interesting, after reading testimonials & experiences of some 100 plus people including some Indians. I must mention here, the blog post of Ms. Priya Aurora, who has inspired me the most. Not only I kept on researching through Internet, I enrolled myself for an International Sports Nutrition certification from ISSA, USA. And as a New Year resolution (which I generally never do), I started applying the entire concept on myself since mid-January 2016. I quit Rice, Roti, Refined Vegetable Oil, Milk & Sugar and instead started eating all Protein, Fat & Fibre rich food- everything cooked either in Desi Ghee or Butter (with occasional use of either olive oil or mustard oil).
The result started showing by the 3rd week when I found a 2 inch loss in my waist (from 38 to 36) & saw my weight going below 100 for the 1st time after so many years.
By the end of April, I touched 85 kg. My body fat percent had come down from 35 to 22. On 25th April, I got my annual health checkup done, and the miracle had already happened. This time No Fatty Liver condition was there. And you know what! My triglyceride level had come down from 183 – Borderline High (previous year same time) to 68 – perfectly healthy.
By the end of June 2016, my weight touched 80, waist reduced to the final 32", got my BCA done. This time Body fat is ~18%. And I achieved my target. During this entire journey I have certainly influenced many, who are now travelling through their healthy life journey.
LCHF WOE Lifestyle is not just a weight loss program, it’s a journey towards achieving the optimum health. With little effort in gym with weight training, I could add some strength to my muscles, which I was lacking. I have now totally come out from the lifestyle disorders like stress, hypertension, BP and sleeplessness.
After achieving a dramatic fat loss within an unimaginable timeframe, I dreamt to share this knowledge & help as many people as possible around me. That’s how in May 2016, Fitter YOU came into existence with a closed Facebook group with few hundred members. The members started reading and getting benefits from the knowledge that was being shared in the group. They kept on adding more and more members whom they thought, this knowledge will be helpful to
I started spreading the health & wellness knowledge among people in various Gurgaon residential societies and couple of Schools, before I started coaching my clients, who needed my professional service. Thereafter I started conducting wellness sessions for different corporates in Delhi NCR.
With my continuous reading & researches, I keep on writing on various health & nutrition related articles in the Fitter YOU Blog section.
