Around 7 years back at the age of 21 I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called anylosing spondylitis- it’s a chronic inflammatory condition – (a type of an arthritis.) I used to wake up with excruciating pain in my lower back and I just couldn’t get myself out of bed.
I had not put on weight as such but I constantly felt bloated and even the people who I met told me that I looked unwell and weak overall.
That’s when I happened to get in touch with Neha. I casually just mentioned it to her and she told me she could help me. She explained to me how an anti inflammatory diet would help my condition and because I had tried and tested everything – homeopathy, physiotherapy, I was ready to do everything it takes.
And after 4 months of religiously following her diet I was shocked myself how only a lifestyle change could change my life.
I felt lighter, I was off my medication, I looked healthy and felt healthy.
She told me what kind of food I’m supposed to eat, what should I be avoiding and slowly without me even realising she changed my diet to an alkaline diet.
I know for most people when it comes to eating right it’s more about losing weight, getting fit and toned but for me it wasn’t the weight..it was for eating healthy to be healthy, eating healthy to just be able to get up and get going.
All I did was change my diet and ONLY changing my diet changed my life.
Thankyou so much Neha.
I feel like I owe you for life for this.
And because I have seen how it has worked wonders for me this lifestyle change has stuck with me for life

It’s my life style now to do neha every 6months so get into healthy and sensible eating. This is My 3rd time I am following neha her diet and it’s always a success. The few kilos I increase are only been able to go is by neha 🙂
And in this pandemic is most important to eat right and stay high on your immunity and she took proper care of that
I wanted to eat right while my fast in Ramadan because we always tend to eat whatever comes our way but this time it was all clean ❤️
Maryam Mustafa, Female
When I first dragged myself along with Zeel to see you I was stuck inside my head and was definitely feeling that I will not be able to do it as this was the first time I had tried the big word DIETING 😛 (not that I was a junk eater).
But within minutes I felt like I was sitting down with a really smart, knowledgeable, practical, understandable and a fun friend like person. In spite of being in the so called dreadful phase of MENOPAUSE you have helped me shed my pilled on kilos. I am highly grateful to you for your motivation all through out so Thank you.
I would like to take this opportunity to write that the best part about your posts on Instagram is how selflessly you take a up a topic and give a detailed insight as well guidance to come out of it with such details and precision, so kudos for that 👏🏼👏🏼
I thought I knew everything about food, and my behaviour with food, but I was definitely re-schooled in this journey with better understanding and I could enact it with more creativity.
SO I HIGHLY RECOMMEND “NEHA SAHAYA WELLNESS“.
Rupal Mehta, Female
Hi Neha ! I wanted to sincerely thank you… I came to you after a lot of contemplation- assuming I won’t be able to follow a diet and all.. However you changed that perception so effortlessly. Your diets are so doable, keeps one feeling satiated,active & healthy.
I wanted to get back to my pre-delivery body. Though I am happiest to share after loosing 9.5kgs I am back to my pre-wedding weight.. I couldn’t be more happy & grateful. All this could happen because of you 😊😘.
From 66.5kgs to 57kgs. Yayyyyyyy in less than 5 months.
You are doing a fab job in keeping most like me motivated & choosing health & lifestyle which isn’t so difficult after all.
Sonam Honda, Female
She asked me to incorporate nutritious/ calorific as well as tasty foods in my diet such as dates , raisins , naachni/ ragi in different forms that would give me the required iron and colic acid.
She also asked me to include proteins such as chicken and egg whites which help in healthy weight gain as well as iron absorption.
Further she cleared misconceptions about certain other foods combinations like Palak panner which actually restrict absorption of protein (as dairy limited absorption of iron rich foods like Palak ).
Her anti bloat recipe was also helpful in the 7th month month where other digestive issues – bloating , constipation etc started kicking in.
I am now in my 8th month with a better heamoglobin and feeling more energetic and have had a healthy / appropriate weight gain .
Tanya Bedi, Female
Thank You Neha for being with me not just throughout my pregnancy but even before I conceived and now in my lactation journey. During my pregnancy you have helped me choose the correct diet without making me miss out on my cravings. Chalking out a balanced diet motivated me to eat healthy & inspite of having twins I did not gain so much except the water weight. The best part was how u were available 24/7 on text to guide whenever I was anxious of any food item. I am already down 10 kgs in last 15 days of my delivery. Thank u so much Neha, it’s been a wonderful before & after journey 🙂

Thankyou for always guiding me and being available all the time and helping me with making the correct choice❤
Mehzabeen Rehman, Female
Hi Neha, Thanks for helping me with the weight loss. Your advice was practical and very effective. I didn’t expect losing 10 kgs would be so effortless. It’s not just the weight loss, I also feel much healthier. I was impressed with your ability to tailor the diet to suit circumstances and preferences. I should also mention your assistant, Manisha is super efficient with following up and scheduling sessions.
Roopal Kulsrestha, Female
Thank you so much for the much practical diet plan that only helped my lose 10 kgs in three months with a brisk walk of one hour every day but also helped my lower my blood pressure which was actually the cause of all my health problems..
It was a complete lifestyle change for me.. And has helped me develop healthy eating habits for the first time in life..
Cheers to u and your team

Being a mother of 2 boys and was lactating , I still managed to lose more than 90 percent of my pregnancy weight with Neha in 3 months. Her plan was practical and easy to follow and suited my lifestyle.My entire family goes to her and somehow all have lost a good amount of weight thanks to her very doable nutrition plans . Thank you so much.
I also recommend neha to anyone who asks me about a nutritionist they should go to.
Her maintenance plans are amazing and really helps you keep check of the food groups you should consume.
Shahnoor Garg, Female
Had a superb journey with neha. Eating right was my main concern. She is very flexible with the diet you don’t like or you want to change. Saw a great difference in my body.
Her diet was followed by myself; my husband and even my 2 teenage boys. Major difference was with my boys. They dropped down 6 kgs in just 2 weeks.
Thank you Neha for a better well being given by you.
Maryam Mustafa (Dubai), Female
Thank you so much for your help and guidance with setting my eating routine plan just right that fits my lifestyle perfectly. Even though I could make the right choices while eating but never had a control on the portions which you helped me to a major extent.
The last couple of months I saw significant changes in my energy, the way I feel, dropped kilos and inches. It’s been amazing And I am glad I came to you just before getting married so I could get into shape. I will continue the routine and definitely get in touch with you once I move to Dubai as well. Thank you for everything.
Rashmi Bagai, Female, 30
Neha is a magician. She helped me break the weight plateau that wasn’t budging since 3-4 years, and she did it in less than 3 months. I’m not a person who goes on any fad diets or takes weight loss pills, and I love food. Neha helped me reach my weight goals without compromising on food, but just by eating at the right time and in a right way. I would recommend her to all those people who want to lose weight in a balanced way, with your food preferences and without any drastic changes in your routine. She helped me regain my health and fitness goals after 2 pregnancies where I had almost doubled in weight.
Thank you Neha!!!

MUST CHOOSE Neha!!!
If you want a committed, compassionate and a knowledgeable partner in nutrition. That’s Neha!!
After trying everything and many many nutritionist as a mom has lost faith until she came to the rescue. I highly recommend her, she’s professional and empathetic. I can’t forget to mention she worked miracles from overseas. I am in NY and inspite all great opportunities here Neha was the one who not only helped my daughter with weight loss but also her attitude that was a A+.
Thanks Neha! God bless

Eat for the body u want, not for the body u have : is what Neha Chokhani Sahaya believes in and it has now made my belief in it very strong also.Since last 3-4 months am taking Her meal plans and services and hv lost all my extra weight , with muscle mass increased and body fat coming down.For the first time following a diet doesn’t make me deprived of any food and have zero cravings, along with glowing skin .My journey with NHF is amazing (flab to fab). Thank you Neha. My journey has just started with u and a nutritionist cum friend like u as a guide is awesomely awesome
LEENA PATEL, Female
“Eat for the body you want and not for the body you have” is what she believes in. Since past 2 months I have been following Neha’s meal plans and have lost a considerable amount of weight with zero workout since I’m recovering from a slipdisc (with drinking every alternate weekends). Her emphasis is to bring your fat percentage down and increase your metabolism. For the first time following a diet doesn’t make me feel deprived of ant food and I have zero cravings. Since she incorporates all your food preferences. She’s helped me change my relationship with food & I learnt it’s all about how you eat. Thank you for the inspiration and motivation.
DILSHAD UKAJI, Female, 34
What I love about Neha is her passion for fitness! When I first read her blog, what struck me the most was her concentration on following a good lifestyle! Concentrate on that and you lose weight automatically! Her focus on increasing your metabolism as opposed to just losing weight fast helps you to maintain your weight loss even after you increase your food intake. She is easily accessible, no-nonsense and motivates you tremendously.
TANMAYI GADRE, Female, 32
Neha’s approach to diet /good health is very easy and doable /practical. I am v happy going to her as I did gt my desired weight loss (and I’m 60 yrs young) she is always ready to answer any food related queries. Wish her good luck always.
VIBHA RUPANI, Female, 60
After a long time of eating healthy and still not losing weight, I decided to visit Neha and she has been super helpful and available literally at all times of the day to answer my questions. She really goes the extra mile to figure out your travel schedule and other aspects of your lifestyle and the result of that is a diet that is not only manageable but also includes the few things you really don’t want to give up and crave. Follow what she gives you (with a few cheat whiskeys here and there – 4 small to be precise is what she let me have) and you will see results in the first few weeks! Thanks for the motivation and letting me have chocolate – all be it 85% dark and I will see you in 2 weeks again food choices with a new perspective. So now it’s all about healthy eating with a little bit of cheating now and then!
MUKUL POOJRA, Male , 30
Neha’s diet plans are easy and very doable. And the best part – you see results in the very first month! I had been trying to lose my pregnancy weight for a quite a while. However nothing seemed to work till I consulted Neha. She is very approachable and also takes into account other factors such as your lifestyle and expectations.
RACHYETA SHAH, Female, 32
Neha was super helpful for me to drop 3 kgs of my post pregnancy weight in 1 month. The best part of the diet was that I didn’t have to starve myself. I needed to eat the right food at the right time! With a toddler, Neha understood that it won’t be possible to have a totally different meal or make something out of the normal routine meals. Hence she worked around my timings and my meals, which is honestly all the more convenient to follow her diet
AISHA KINGER, Female, 30
Neha’s diet has helped me loose the fat percentage from my body, which is not that easy to lose at the age of 50. The best part about her diet is she closely monitors my eating pattern and gives me easy replacements even when I have to attend functions.

“WHAT TO EAT AT A FAST FOOD JOINT”
I know everyone loves fast food.Sometimes its easy and convenient option or when you are on the go, there is no choice fast food seems like the easiest option.So what can we do in order to avoid unwanted calories and still try to be as healthy as possible? Honesty after making my lifestyle change to be healthy I dislike fast food,I never crave for it nor do I desire it.But due to some reason if I have then these are things I keep in mind …… Dont supersize your meal.Always go for the small size.For example go for a cheese burger instead of a double cheese burger.By choosing smaller size meals u eat less food,less fat, less salt.RESULT WEIGH LESS.:) …
“NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE”
I have been considerably active and have been working out from my teenage years. However that didn’t prevent me from gaining 17 kilos during my pregnancy.Everyone thought that I would never loose my weight and consoled me by saying “Now you are a mother accept your loose stomach and big body” I didn’t want be one of those women who 10 years down the line looked in the mirror and did not recognize themselves. I have seen when a person reaches a stage of frustration is the time we choose unhealthy fad diets and workout the wrong way.To do the right fat loss requires a lot of effort .I wanted to break this stereotype thinking and decided “lets get healthy …
“YOUR BODY.YOUR TARGET.YOUR GOAL”
Excited to become healthy and fit 🙂 Before you start off your journey towards fitness, it’s very important for you to decide your goal or target. If you are trying to lose weight only for some occasion like someones wedding or birthday or for your wedding day , its good to have these goals but remember, weight lost in a hurry only comes back it in few months. Instead, set long-term goals. Try for bigger goals like getting a defined physique or being more athletic.These goals are based on stronger foundation and are more towards lifestyle change than just vanity. For me, I want to be fit ,strong and have energy so I can play and run behind my child …
“DIET VS WORKOUT”
The real question is, What workout to do, what diet to follow and what fat loss program is there ? There are so many dietitians, gyms ,trainers and so many different forms of workout most of them are questionable, expensive and one doesn’t give results. I went to one dietitian who gave me fat burners and I was like how is that healthy????? It is important to choose a plan that fits into our daily life so that we can stick to it. Only then it’s a lifestyle change otherwise you will be back to where u started. Once you have decided your target and goal, the next step is to incorporate healthy eating and exercises. The worst mistake you …
Body shaming has become very common. People will always blurt out things like “too fat”, “too thin”, “loose skin”, “jiggly arms”, “too muscular”, etc. LET PEOPLE KEEP TALKING, YOU JUST KEEP GETTING BETTER. Post pregnancy during my transformation journey , I attracted a lot of comments from people. Some said I was too thin, some said I was perfect, and some said I needed to be more toned. Initially, I was confused who I should be taking seriously. The answer is… no one. People’s opinion about my body really has nothing to do with me. Yes, at times it does hurt when people comment, but remember, it’s their perception which they build on their own experiences or body type they …
“EAT AND BE FIT”
Sounds strange, doesn’t it? Let me explain this to you. Life is no fun without good food. So why should we deprive ourselves of the good things in life if the ultimate goal is to be happy? One should always enjoy the joy of wearing the clothes they like and loving the reflection of themselves in the mirror. Remember, it’s not about looking good; it’s about feeling fit. That should be your goal. What I figured out over time with right guidance and enough reading that losing fat, building muscle, and maintaining a healthy body forever comes down to just three basic principals of Carter : Being in a Calorie Deficit diet Exercise daily to Build Muscle and Burn Fat …
“PEOPLE WILL STARE .MAKE IT WORTH THEIR WHILE “- Harry Winston
Everywhere I go, I face the same questions… Neha, how do I lose weight? Could you suggest me a diet, please? How is your body so well-toned? You have a flat tummy, and it’s not even been too long since you had the baby. How? I put in the effort, so it does feel nice to hear words of appreciation. I wish the answers to people’s questions were this simple though… After having my daughter, I gained almost 17 kgs. I absolutely enjoyed my pregnancy. It was stress-free and I had a ball of a time. I had no worries about losing weight that I had gained because I had done it before, so how hard could it be? Let …
“VEGETARIANS DO NOT GET ENOUGH PROTEIN IS A MYTH”
People often ask me, “Neha I am a vegetarian, what should I eat to ensure my protein intake is substantial?” Trust me, if I had a penny for every time I have answered this question I would be a billionaire. So this definitely deserves a blog post and with the month of Shravan and Ganpati around the corner even the non vegetarians are stressed. I hope this helps you and gives you more than enough choices on veg protein. I feel most vegetarians are simply confused thanks to the western culture diets that are meat based, which leads them to believe that we do not get enough protein in plant based diets and even if we do, the choices are …
“YES YOU CAN DRINK AND LOOSE WEIGHT”
Don’t get too happy reading my title 🙂 Lets be realistic, sometimes there’s nothing better at the end of a long day than a glass of wine. Alcohol unfortunately has a bad reputation for many people trying to loose weight or who are into fitness.But reality is that alcohol is just another source of calories in your diet like how we have protein,carbs and fat.It has empty calories and no nutrition, and for sure cannot fill you up. Off course your metabolic rate slows down to some extend every time we drink but the important thing is what we do the next day with our diet. In my weight loss journey I never stopped drinking on my weekends.I used to …
INCLUDE FLAX SEEDS IN YOUR DIET
Everyday we hear,read or see online that cinnamon is good, some say flax seed is essential , then another article will mention about chia seeds. The real question is how should we include these amazing super foods in our diet ? Today I am going to talk about flax seeds and how this amazing seed can be included in your diet. Flax seed is excellent in omega 3 and high in fiber which helps in lowering cholesterol.It is an excellent source of omega 3 for vegetarians in particular as their diet usually lacks in it.You don’t need to eat a large helping of flaxseeds to reap these health benefits , 1 to 2 tablespoon to start with is enough.
