Diet Issues

RxOcean follows scientific methodology perfected over years by our team of doctors and dietitians / dieticians. Each individual case gets a team of one doctor and dietitian / dietician. Each case is also discussed in detail within the team of doctors and dietitians / dieticians and calorie / nutrient intake is decided after taking into account your body analysis, lifestyle and other health aspects.
Instead of putting any weight loss client on a crash diet our dietitians / dieticians slowly migrate weight loss / weight gain clients to controlled diet from their current un-controlled dietary habits. Thus leaving clients with sustained weight loss without any side effects.

We modify recipes (as per tastes of our clients) rather than telling new recipes and food items which people might find difficult to adjust. Also done is a regular weekly follow-up for motivation and to monitor changes in your body. At the same time clients can contact dietitians / dieticians howsoever number of times thus ensuring availability of dietitians / dieticians round the clock.

Still not convinced, Why not discuss your case with our Dietician / Nutritionist. Have a telephonic consultation with one of our dietitians at any of our centers in Delhi, Bangalore, Chandigarh or Gurgaon.

Highlighted below are some of the common Dietary issues that we have noticed in our clients from various parts of the country. In case you identify with any of the issues listed below – your first step towards Healthy living should be changing your diet & lifestyle.
