FAQs

  1. How do I know if the Fittify Diet is right for me?

    Fittify Diet plan is planned with a healthy & balanced approach to lose weight. It is a balanced meal plan that focusses on inclusion of all Essential food groups. Especially focusing on
    • Carbohydrates : Carbohydrates are portion controlled according to tailored calorie controlled diet plans. Simple sugars, refined cereals & fried carbohydrates are restricted.
    • Proteins : Diets are planned providing 15% calorific value from proteins. This prevents loss of muscle mass with weight loss.
    • Vitamins & Minerals : Adequate amount of vegetables & Fruits are included in the diet plan to maximise cellular functions. This also helps to prevent micronutrient deficiencies associated with weight loss plans like Anaemia, low immunity etc.
    • Fats : This diet is not eliminating fat completing, this is because fats are important nutrients. Healthy fats are included in restricted amounts.
    • Fibre : Diet plan focusses on adequate intake of fruits & vegetables, thus does not compromise on the fibre intake.
  2. There are so many diets out there. Why should I trust Fittify diet plan?

    Fittify diet plan is planned on the recommendations of National Institute of Nutrition (NIN). Since it focusses on balanced meals covering all food groups, it prevents nutrient deficiencies & is safe to follow. It is in line with the National Nutrition Policy.
  3. How do Fittify diet plan work?

    Fittify diet plan works on basic principles as suggested by Indian Dietetic Association (IDA) Guidelines, Clinical Dietetics’ Manual, 2nd Edition, 2018
    • i.e. Calorie intake should be lesser than the calorie expenditure to create a calorie deficit which causes weight loss. It aims at providing adequate calories for the resting metabolism & Thermic effect of food, while the calories for the daily chores & exercise are deficient in the diet. Thus, this plan aims at a deficit of 500 calories a day. This would cause a loss of 1 pound or 450 grams a week. Weight loss of approximately 2 kilograms a month is healthy & sustainable.
    • Total energy expenditure (TEE) is composed of the energy costs of the processes essential for life (basal metabolic rate (BMR), 60–80% of TEE), of the energy expended in order to digest, absorb, and convert food (diet-induced thermogenesis, ~10%), and the energy expended during physical activities (activity energy expenditure, ~15–30%)
    • Reference : https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5292109/
    • What is Resting Energy Expenditure: Resting energy expenditure is the energy cost of the physiological functions necessary to maintain homeostasis? These involuntary functions include respiration, cardiac output, body temperature regulation, and other functions of the sympathetic nervous system
    • Reference : https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/medicine-and-dentistry/resting-energy-expenditure
  4. What is Thermic Effect of Food?

    Thermic effect of a meal (TEF) is the increase in energy expenditure (EE) engendered by the energy used in the postprandial period in the process of absorbing, metabolizing, and storing ingested nutrients The energy (calories) spent to digest & assimilate the nutrient is highest for proteins, followed by carbohydrates & least for fats (L Tappy : Thermic effect of food and sympathetic nervous system activity in humans. Reprod Nutr Dev (1996)36,391-397).
  5. What is a "healthy diet"?

    A healthy diet plan includes all the food groups. It is also not restrictive for a food group. It is sustainable. Also, involves inclusion of seasonal & local fruits & vegetables.

(Recommended Dietary Allowances: 10th Edition) RDA represents the level of the nutrient to be consumed daily to meet all the requirements of most of the healthy individuals with moderate physical activity in a given population. Nutrient requirements and recommended dietary allowances (RDAs) are set and revised periodically by the Indian Council of Medical Research. These are meant to guide the population and provide policy directions regarding nutrient requirements corresponding to a healthy population. RDA recommendations are set considering age, gender, physical activity & special needs (pregnancy/lactation/infants) (Krishna P.M.N. etal., Country-specific nutrient requirements & recommended dietary allowances for Indians: Current status & future directions. Indian J Med Res. 2018 Nov; 148(5): 522–530) RDA for an Indian male who does moderate physical activity (above 18 years), weight 60 kg are
    • Calories : 2730 cals /day
    • Protein : 60 g/day
    • Visible Fat : 30g/day
    • Iron : 17 mg/day

In this review, the Consensus Group considered the available physical activity guidelines from international and Indian studies and formulated India-specific guidelines. A total of 60 min of physical activity is recommended every day for healthy Asian Indians in view of the high predisposition to develop T2DM and CHD. This should include at least 30 min of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, 15 min of work-related activity, and 15 min of muscle-strengthening exercises.

It is a formula food presented as a replacement of one or more meals of the daily diet and should comply with the following: Provide energy not less than 200Kcal and not more than 400kcal per meal. Not less than 25% and not more than 50% of the energy available from food, when ready to serve shall be derived from its protein content. Currently, besides medical formulas for specific health conditions (as stated above), Meal replacers are being adopted as a convenient and effective tool in the battle against obesity. A meal replacer for weight management is usually 2-3 times lower in calories as compared to an average meal and is a mixture of protein (whey/ soy/ casein), carbohydrates (maltodextrin/ fructose/ dietary fibers like psyllium, inulin, oat fiber), and fat. Along with these meal replacers are also enriched with a blend of vitamins and minerals and certain herbal extracts such as garcinia cambogis, green coffee bean, green tea extract, ginger extract, etc..
  3. Why should one use a meal replacer for weight management?

    Saving calories or burning calories helps in weight management.A decrease of 1000kcal daily is required to lose about 1kg a week and a reduction of 500Kcal daily will bring about a weight loss of nearly ½ kg a week. This means that to lose ½kg (one pound), either you will have to burn or save 500 calories every day. In a hectic life, it becomes difficult to accommodate workout every day. Meal replacers are being adopted as a convenient and effective tool in the battle against obesity. Low compliance is considered to be the biggest obstacle for successful dieting and meal replacers have shown to improve it through improving meal timing, reduced calorie content and increasing nutritional awareness. These are usually 2-3 times lower in calories as compared to an average meal. Along with cutting calories in a controlled way, many nutrition experts also think meal replacement diets are effective because they offer a structured plan and are the ultimate convenience food as they require little or no preparation or cooking. They’re also a potentially good option for people who prefer to eat foods that are already calorie and portion controlled for them.
