Food is directly proportionate to our health. Our diet is mainly responsible for our physical as well as our mental health. Following Nutritionist Sayantani Mohinta’s metabolic based and nutritional diet plans have proven this fact to many of her patients and their relatives.
Praising her and her e-clinic The Diet Hub by Sayantani®, Surabhi Ranjan says that her mother Dr K. Ranjan has been overweight most of her adult life. She has struggled with her weight despite many weight loss programs and exercise regimens. During the COVID-19 pandemic, things came to a tipping point when her weight increased to 84 kg, and she started having difficulty walking from joint pains, uncontrolled asthma and hypertension. This was when Surabhi contacted nutritionist Sayantani for a supervised weight loss plan. In just four months, her mom has lost 12 Kg and continues to lose more. Her joint pains, asthma and energy levels have dramatically improved. She is happy, healthy and rejuvenated. The best part of her diet plan was that it was scientifically sound and nutritionally balanced. She was eating five meals a day and never starving. “It taught my mom a new way of life. Ms Mohinta was readily available by phone or text to my mom and was very sweet and supportive. I cannot thank Ms Mohinta enough!” adds Surabhi.
A patient, Neha Dongare, testifies, “This is the second time I am taking consultation from her as I had gained weight after delivery…she is super cooperative…within four months lost 12 Kgs…highly recommended…Sayantani helped me to gain my confidence back…and the best thing is her diet did not affect me at all on my lactation….”
Another patient Saru Saseedharan says, “I found Sayantani through recommendations on Facebook. I have hypothyroidism, and I have been struggling to lose even one kg for years! After consulting Sayantani and following her diet and nutrition advice for a month, I’ve lost almost Six Kgs. Her diet regime is super easy to follow, and it curbs unnecessary hunger pangs as well. She also helped arrest my cravings by adding healthier substitutes for what I was craving. I highly recommend it. Thank you Sayantani!”
Adding on more feedback by a patient, Kavita Sarvesh, reveals, “I am happy to share that I lost approx. Six kgs in two months and plan to continue further. Indicating inch loss, too. I am feeling healthier and lighter now. Sayantani is an excellent person. She transformed my attitude towards diets by introducing the form in a routine way with no added effort. My food habits have changed, and I am happy about it. Much gratitude, Sayantani.”

She has also given talks at various forums and made impactful presentations in the Ladies’ clubs and NGO’s regarding woman’s health and dietary habits.
Food and nutrition have been Sayantani’s passion, and she has been inclined towards making a social impact and bringing awareness through a balance of food and lifestyle habits. As a nutritionist, she discovered the importance of easy-to-follow nutritional diets, which should be easy to comprehend and, more importantly, the diets should be sustainable in the long run. It has also been her motto to make people aware of Indian diets. They are very naturally healthy and simpler to adhere to. Western food habits and crash diets are easily available everywhere, on any social media or advertisements. Now a day’s people can make their own diet charts via google and many apps.
“But I have noticed that these diets are short-lived and further leading to many deficiencies in the long term,” says Sayantani. These trending diets may show results faster than metabolic diets but have a deep-rooted effect on the body’s metabolism. In this tech era, people are treating their bodies like machines and want quick results in a week or months with various combinations of diets. She aims to make people realize that diet is not magic and does not work wonders immediately. The diet provided must be customized for an individual’s metabolic activity and suited to his or her body’s requirement. Dieting also does not mean you should starve and deprive yourself of food. She gets inspired when her members achieve their intended health objectives like lowering blood glucose and high cholesterol, improving piles condition etc., along with weight loss and thereby start feeling healthier and happier. “I derive contentment from my work when I hear about my member’s success stories through honest testimonials and how they have benefited from my customized diet plans,” she expresses.

Nutritionist Sayantani’s USP is to chalk out easy to adhere to Indian diets for her members to help them achieve the desired health objectives. The diets are based on Indian foods. Therefore, it makes them sustainable for the members to follow even after completing their enrolled program. Her e-clinic and website are prominently visible in Google searches.

Since it’s completely online through one-to-one telephonic consultations, it is easy for working people to follow and get counselling sessions at their convenience. Her repeat members rate is high.

Her diets are free from any supplements, artificial enhancers or metabolic boosters. Members achieve the results by following her diet plans based on home-cooked foods and natural ingredients.
According to Sayantani, her initial challenges were to make people understand the difference between dieting and good food habits. Earlier people considered diets only for weight loss. Now a day’s, people are more health conscious and demanding. They want diets tailored to their specific health requirements.
Fighting Unhealthy Diet Regimes
The challenge she now faces in nutrition counselling is that most people have already followed some or the other diet plans either on their own by doing Google research or through crash dieting. She also gets members who have followed plans through app-based services without tangible long-term health benefits. These self-researched or app services have created a negative effect on their health. It has slowed the body’s metabolism and resulted in nutritional deficiencies. Many members have complained of poor hair and skin quality, fatigue and acidity issues resulting from the crash and unhealthy diet regimes they have followed earlier. Therefore, the challenge for her is to analyse their body metabolism and history in-depth. Having focused consultation conversations with the members and understanding their requirements is imperative. Subsequently, she strives to bring their lifestyle and health back on track with her customised diet plans. The current challenges are rebooting their metabolism, improving overall health, and addressing the targeted health issues.
The Forward Tech-Momentum
Being an experienced leader, Nutritionist Sayantani shares her opinions on how technology transforms the nutritional and dietary sector. She says that when she started her e-clinic, The Diet Hub by Sayantani, six years ago, people were not very tech friendly. They were also sceptical about online consultations. The majority preferred face-to-face or clinic-based consultations. Over the years and more so after the lockdown, people have realized that it is not the medium of diet consultation that makes the difference, but the efforts put in by your nutritionist, be it offline or online. Her approach has been to leverage technology to make it simpler for her members to reach out to her at their convenience and availability. Members have accepted that customized diet and nutrition plans can bring out the intended health benefits when imparted through an online platform like hers. The acceptability of her e-clinic, The Diet Hub by Sayantani, has gained tremendously over the years. Needless to say, The Diet Hub by Sayantani, an online platform, also kept the momentum going during the lockdown phase.
There are many members from outside India as well enrolled in. In the future, The Diet Hub by Sayantani aims to leverage the power of social media and member referrals to reach out to more people globally and increase awareness about the benefits of Indian foods for bringing out lifestyle-related changes. Her e-clinic is also working on leveraging advanced analytics for in-depth analysis of members’ metabolic parameters and thereby aiding in chalking out specific diet plans specifically in case of members diagnosed with multiple lifestyle disorders.
Making a Positive Health and Lifestyle Impact
In her advice to the aspirants willing to venture into nutrition and dietary planning, she says that she would like Nutritionists to make people aware of healthy diets with sustainable health benefits. “Being a Nutritionist is not only about taking up a commercial profession. We also have a social commitment towards positively impacting peoples’ health and lifestyle.” She advises aspirants not to convince people to follow a crash diet pattern that may provide short-term benefits but eventually spoils their complete body metabolism in the long run.
