We provide nutrition consultations to help people manage health conditions such as PCOS, Diabetes, Hypertension, Hyperuricemia (Elevated Uric Acid levels), Thyroid, Hormonal Imbalance, Nutritional Deficiencies, etc., and diseases induced by lifestyle, obesity and nutritional disorders.

Could you provide an overview of your professional background and accomplishments?

I am a Clinical Nutritionist and a certified Health Coach in the field of therapeutic nutrition, weight management and general health counseling since 2012. I build meticulous, portion-controlled Personalized Metabolic Diet plans to focus solely on home-cooked, fresh healthy meals, ensuring there is no starvation. These Diet Plans consider the minutest of details about you, your lifestyle, eating habits, any disease/illnesses, etc.

I strongly advocate and apply the principles of Nutri-Genetics, lifestyle modifications and food management, to optimize the health and weight of individuals in their quest for all-round fitness and energy.

I founded Nutrify with Nidhi Nigam in 2013 and have been running a physical clinic in Bengaluru and an online consultancy globally ever since. I have built a solid foundation in the field by completing my Master’s in Dietetics and Food Service Management from IGNOU, Diploma in Clinical Nutrition from Apollo Medvarsity and Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Health Coaching from IIN USA.

I am a keen follower of nutrition and natural food and have completed my Certification in Ayurveda Nutrition from Trans-disciplinary University, and Certification in Functional Nutrition from iThrive Academy. I am passionate and strong-willed to change people’s mindset about health and am inspired by nature and its ability to magically transform us by correcting our eating habits

What motivated you to enter the healthcare sector as a nutritionist and dietary solutions provider? Was there a personal experience that drove you to focus on scientific and sustainable health approaches?

The biggest inspiration to work hard towards Nutritional Health came from my own life story and unsuccessful attempts in losing weight purely due to incorrect, unscientific and harmful methods which were the root cause of various health issues.

When I realized that I wasn’t the only one affected by these tall claims and false promises of various ‘health and diet chains’, I decided to take matters into my own hand, study the body and the miraculous effects of loving and accepting healthy, nutritional food for a happy and healthy life. When I saw the change in me, I decided it was time to build a strong foundation that can then help a larger audience and help them transform their lives as well.

What sets Nutrify with Nidhi Nigam apart as a prominent player in the nutritional and dietary industry?

The biggest standout is to work with readily available foods in your kitchen which are your age-old, traditional ingredients that have been respected and have worked for generations together and not create a fuss and fear about superfood fads, mono diets, or restrictive diets.

Most importantly, I strongly voice my opinion against pills, powders and various shakes under the name of ‘detox/weight loss miracles.’ These are strict NO-NO for me and I ensure my clients learn to understand nutrition, sustainable health and well-being from everyday produce and ingredients.

Could you highlight the advantages of the nutritional and dietary products you offer to your clients?

The most critical benefit is that I do not provide artificial products and pills in the name of supplements. I engage with my clients to understand their nutritional needs and voice out the innate capacity that the human body has to heal itself when nourished with the right foods.

What were the initial and ongoing challenges you faced in the nutritional and dietary solutions field, and how do you tackle these challenges to achieve greater success?

Challenges that have always been and will remain is the fear of food in general that the market, food industry and ‘quacks’ so to speak have created. This could include statements like ban carbs, ban fats, fad diets and quick weight loss hacks.

The only way to overcome these challenges is to constantly create awareness of balanced nutrition, the benefits of everyday food and a healthy and holistic physical and mental lifestyle.

Being an experienced leader, share with us your opinion on how technology is transforming the Healthcare sector and how is your company embracing the change.

Technology today plays a huge role in just about every aspect of lifestyle or business. The pandemic was primarily responsible for this disruption at a pace faster than one could imagine.

In our field, technology is an enabler to upgrade yourself on the latest happenings in the industry, equip yourself with more knowledge and most importantly, reach out to a global audience and help them in their journey for good health.

What would be your advice to the aspirants who are willing to venture into the field?

My biggest advice is to be true to yourself, gather as much valid research and knowledge; not depend on a one-size-fits-all formula. In any field, it is only honesty, passion, the willingness to make a difference and the drive to give it your 100% that will take you to the next level. And of course, never forget your roots or where you have come from; a little compassion can take you a long way!

How do you envision scaling the company’s offerings in the future?

The idea is to work towards building a holistic health company–one that gives importance to nutritional consulting, lifestyle changes in terms of workouts and fresh nutritious food boxes for young professionals with no access to cooking them. These are ideas and we are in the process of thinking about its scalability and logistics but the vision is very clear–to be a holistic health management platform.
