Who is Sapna Vyas Patel? Please say something about yourself?
Sapna :I am a doctoral student and a Reebok Certified Fitness Professional. I have done MBA full-time from Nirma University and bachelors in Psychology from St. Xaviers College.
I am honest in my efforts be it for others or myself and it reinforces positivity. I can’t do things half-heartedly. I do something or I don’t, I can’t commit myself to the mediocre. I give my best shot to achieve a desired result and the rest I leave to God. Whatever He has thought for me has to be good.
When did you realize that you had to lose weight?
Sapna : Even when I was fat I was very happy in my own skin. But, I was perceived more than my age and deep down somewhere it created a feeling of hurt. I didn’t like when once a stranger assumed me to be the mother of my niece and I was just 19. Such small incidences created the turmoil within. I chose not to accept the thing I could change. I am happy to say that I lost 33 kg from 86 to 53 without any pills, surgery or crash dieting. Most importantly, I did it without having any regrettable side effects such as stretch marks, loose skin or dark circles.
What are the things that you strictly followed while you were losing weight?
Sapna : Weight loss can never be seen in isolation, it is only possible through lifestyle modification. I followed healthy eating and regular exercise. Dieting is eating right and not starving. I eat everything I want to but in the right proportion and at the right time. I never did crash dieting or even excess exercising. Initially I did intense Cardio and then switched to Weight Training.

How difficult was it to lose 33 Kg in one year?
Sapna : Nothing worth achieving comes easy. We unconsciously know there are no short cuts to healthy weight loss. Fitness is a way of life and no magic pills are available. Fad diets may give you quick results but it will drain you of energy, put you at health risks and playing tricks with the body is not a wise choice.
Sapna : Motivation can get you started, habit keeps you going. I plan my diet in such a way that I never feel hungry. I eat almost every two hours but in a small quantity. Our body craves certain type of food when it is deprived of it. For example, avoiding sugar completely would make the body crave for it. I keep check on my protein, fat and carbs sources.
