Neha Premjee changed my life. And I will never be the same.

Ever heard the saying “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”? Well, Neha is a living example of it. I worked with Neha for 4 months and lost nearly 30 pounds. The biggest result I received, wasn’t surprisingly the weight loss. It was the proper understanding of HOW MY BODY WORKS! 

 

I came to Neha 4 months ago scared, broke, clueless, doubtful, desperate to see results, but most importantly, apprehensive and worried. Worried this would be “just another diet plan”, worried that the gyms would close due to the lockdown, worried that I would have no groceries at home in order to eat healthy.

In fact, two days before our start date, I nearly backed out. I thought to myself, if gyms are closed and groceries are going to be a hassle how the hell am I going to lose the weight? 

THE BIGGEST LESSON that I have learned with Neha is “Progress- NOT Perfection!” Here is where I was “sold”- after conveying my concerns to her, she said to me “You don’t have access to a gym? I will send you home workouts that you can do in your room, that I can assure you will lose weight with. You don’t have access to wide range of veggies? We can give you an ayurvedic lentil khichidi, it requires 3-4 ingredients! You don’t know how to cook? I will be with you on a video call as I teach you how to make your food”.

Right off the bat I could tell- this woman is INVESTED. She truly treats your success as hers.

It’s personal to her. When she made these promises to me, I automatically felt taken care of. Like a

mama bird takes her birdies under her wings.

I have always been an extreme kind of a personality. I either need to eat super clean, get an hour

long workout in, eat no sugar, get 8 hours of sleep, drink 2 liters of water. If I missed any part of this

formula, I would fling on the other side of the extreme spectrum, where I would eat brownies, purposely not get any movement in, screw up my sleep pattern- the works. You’ve all had the toxic lover named “Self-Sabotage” haven’t you? Well, Neha helps you divorce that little rascal.

In one of our early calls, we had a full-on conversation about how I was craving cake. Neha helped me realize and confront the self- sabotage inside of me. She told me that a part of you is actually uncomfortable that you are getting close to your goals. It will try to sway you in the other direction, but you have to listen to your highest self. Your highest self doesn’t chase perfection, it chases progress.

“Don’t feel like getting a full on “100 burpee challenge” in today? Fine! Give me 20 crunches, 20 squats and 20 mountain climbers. It should not take you longer than 7 min”- This is an actual interaction that took place on an exceptionally lazy and demotivated day for me. “Ugh fine I guess I will get these 3 exercises in” I told myself. You know what happened at the end of the workout? I ended up doing another set!  When you take care of your body, your body takes care of you. When I gave my body the endorphins it needed, it thanked me by giving me energy and the drive to go another round. These kind of small but extremely significant lessons made up the last 120 days for me.

What I love about Neha is that she tackles all parts of your well-being. She understands and advocates that physical, mental, and spiritual health ALL go hand in hand. If you are having a particularly off week or you give in to cravings, or whatever the case might be, she will make it her first priority to dig in deep to figure out the root of the cause and try to nurture all parts of you health. She will make you see and get in touch with the HEALTHIEST version of you. Before I met Neha, I never would’ve thought of myself as a fit or health person. Today, at the end of my program, I truly believe that I am a fit person. I am a healthy person.

My favorite part of the program has to be her insanely knowledgeable video calls. I swear every time I hang up, I say THIS was my favorite call so far!

I have said this before and I will say it again, Neha is not just “health coach” she truly is a life coach. In fact, through her program, I have reduced the frequency of seeing a counselor. I realized as I was

shedding the weight, I was also shedding the anxieties away.

Today I stand 30 pounds lighter. I am certainly not done yet and have a long way to go in my fitness

journey. Not just in terms of weight loss, but just toning, getting abs etc. But you know what? Not for one second do I worry about getting there. Neha has taught me ALL the tools I need to know, in order to drive my fitness journey as far as I want to take it. I remember in our introduction call I said to Neha, I have had so many trainers and dieticians and I am afraid of getting another one. And her response to me was that she was sorry to hear that I had to go through multiple coaches in the first place. Ideally you should only require a health coach once in your life. Because you’re supposed to learn how to approach your fitness. That is exactly what she did.

She taught me how to implement healthy, SUSTAINABLE eating habits, without cutting carbs, or having to count calories. She helped me understand my body through the help of Ayurveda. Neha’s patient, understanding, knowledgeable nature will help you get to your fitness goals.

Neha once said the best investment you will make is towards yourself, and I now live by those words!

Thank you, Neha.

'Neha's program has changed my whole life! She has changed the way I think about food, not just in terms of the amount but also the types of food that align with my body type. For the first time in a really long time I stopped using calorie counting apps like MyFitnesspal. Being obese as a child and struggling with my weight, I never thought it was possible to live life without counting calories. Now, I'm seeing major changes in my body just by following her program, which she has designed specifically for my body type. Neha has also helped me recognize a lot of detrimental behavioural patterns, some of which were deep in my subconscious. I realized these patterns were directly tied to how I was internalizing and processing life events. In retrospect it may seem easy to see how our emotions can affect our eating, but really understanding what that means and how it affects you, that's a lot of detailed work. Neha will dig deep to ask the right questions and get to the right solutions. Most importantly, Neha has helped me understand and accept the new me. I had, and sometimes still have, body distortion. Sometimes I don't recognize who I see in the mirror because my body has changed so much since starting her program. I am finally starting to make peace with my past, and with Neha's help, I have started to see who I truly am. Who I have always been. I just had been hiding her under layers and layers of emotional eating, excess weight, & a self-sabotaging inner dialogue. I finally feel in control. And I owe all of my progress to Neha.

I came to Neha when I was feeling particularly low in self-esteem, mostly due to my consistent weight gain over the year. Because of my weight gain, I isolated myself a lot from my friends and even from the hobbies I loved most. I didn’t like the way I looked, and because of that I didn’t want others to see me at my “low”. I had gained almost 15 pounds over the year, it may not seem like a lot but for someone who spent her entire life being “skinny” no matter what this took a huge toll on me. the constant remarks from family and even the small sly ones from friends started to take a toll on me and I knew I had to do something. Right off the bat Neha made me feel so comfortable and explained the process to me. She took her time to figure out the perfect game plan for me, my body type and my lifestyle. Having someone keep you accountable in the process is so key and she was the perfect companion. She never makes you feel bad even if you are pushing down on yourself. She approaches every situation in a reassuring manner and that genuinely helped keep me off the edge of self-sabotage. 2 months later, I am down 10 pounds and have a “max” weight that I have not surpassed in the past month even if I have my cheat days. I’ve built a strong foundation because of Neha and I strongly recommend anyone who is looking for a change, big or small, reach out to her. Even if you are a sceptic, she will make you a believer.

The first day I joined the program I honestly wasn’t sure how well my body would respond to her coaching. But slowly and steadily through Neha’s personal training, diet and exercise made me realize how to control my body through my mind. Earlier, I was not able to understand my body, whether I should focus on carbs or fats, what to eat and what to avoid. With Neha’s guidance, I focused on quality and quantity of food. I Lost 7.5 kgs in 8 weeks! All thanks to Neha for pushing me, and spreading her positivity. I am genuinely happy with my progress. Now I cant stop following my healthy regime! Thank you, Neha.

I learned about Neha and her work through instagram and I was instantly drawn to her for two reasons: my interest in an Ayurvedic lifestyle and more importantly her genuine push to help her clients individually. From my very first conversation with Neha, I knew she was someone that I could connect with on a deeper level. She took the time to understand my needs and how my body works in relation to my mind. She was unapologetically ready to dive deep into my well being, even before I was.    One of the main reasons I wanted to work with Neha was due to my struggle with endometriosis and weight fluctuation. She really helped me understand how my emotions are so connected to my body and habits and how bringing everything on the same page is so important. Neha takes it upon herself to really get to know her clients and tailor a program that works for them and their specific needs. She helped me understand my body and how to tackle my endometriosis head on.   I am so grateful that our paths aligned and Neha came into my life.

The Quarantine and Lean program with Neha was such a beautiful insight into the mind/body connection and it was a very wholesome program. I loved how Neha incorporated not only workouts, but yoga sessions, meditation, and Ayurvedic approaches to food, all in one.  Not only is Neha super knowledgeable on all of the above, but she brings such a positive energy and light to the group. I loved our weekly sessions and also just learning how everything is so connected. Neha truly listens to you and is so invested in each of us individually.  During this uncertain time and all of the anxiety we have been surrounded with, she brought peace, calmness and helped us stay grounded. I have gotten the chance to really focus on myself and my body and start listening to it. I’m grateful for having this chance to work with her and meet this beautiful soul.
