I was recommended to undergo Bariatric Surgery in August'22 because of obesity related health problems such as high BP, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Fatty liver and Fatigue. Taking up Dr. Roshani's weightloss and insulin resistance reversal program came highly recommended from a doctor. I was ready to do anything to avoid surgery.
From the very first communication via email, it was clear that this was an action oriented programme unlike other spoonfed ones. The intention at Reisaan is to empower everyone enough to take charge of one's lifestyle in an informed and balanced way rather than depend on diet plans that have an expiration date.
The course that preceded the programme is an all encompassing gospel that leaves you with total understanding of what your body mind and soul need to consistently have great health and no unanswered questions.
There are no diet plans but you're taught to listen to your body to choose what it needs.
The programme isn't a race or a crash course, but a deep dive into fixing age old beliefs, our relationship with food, with our body and mind. It sounds philosophical but it isn't!
I learnt about cravings, why they happen, how to control them and also how it is okay to give in to them with awareness! I learnt to fast from 16 to 24, then 36, 72 and finally 120 hours! Not out of sheer will power but preparation, correct nutrition on eating days and precautions on fasting days!
In three months I was never asked about how much weight I lost. Rather I saw for myself that my pain reduced, overall swelling reduced, blood reports show improvement in liver health, cardiac health, pre-diabetes has been reversed, inflammation has reduced and this is only the beginning. Unlike diet plans that end, I've learnt to take charge and create a sustainable lifestyle!
It is December'22, I began this year low and disheartened but thanks to Dr. Roshani and team, I'm ending it on a high!
