Are morning walks by themselves a miracle cure for health issues? Can they help manage and lower cholesterol levels or help you lose weight? Managing lifestyle diseases requires a combination of lifestyle changes, and there’s no room for guesswork. This is what our player, Nitya Kishore Upadhyay, figured out when he joined GOQii. Let’s take a look at how his health story unfolded.
Managing Weight & Cholesterol Issues With Morning Walks
As an employee for a pharmaceutical company, Nitya Kishore Upadhyay was always surrounded by doctors and healthcare professionals. He used to do a blood test every six months. Being in sales and marketing, he was on-field most of the time and used to eat out. As a result, he was overweight and also had a history of high cholesterol and vitamin B12 deficiency.
To manage these conditions, he used to take morning walks, but they barely helped. He was using another company’s fitness tracker but didn’t find much use for it because, apart from the data on the device, there was no one there to guide him.
He wanted a device that did more than just track steps. So he began searching for a solution online and came across GOQii. After some research, he purchased a tracker and subscribed to GOQii’s personalized health coaching plan.
Interacting With A Coach & Making Lifestyle Changes
After activating his coaching subscription and speaking with Coach Anukriti, he had no doubt that GOQii was the right choice for him. He says that he was impressed with the in depth guidance he received from his coach. His initial goal was to lose 8-10kg, manage his cholesterol and vitamin B12 deficiency.
Keeping that in mind, GOQii Coach Anukriti suggested that he increase the intensity of his morning walks. He asked him to clock in at least 10,000 steps a day. Along with walks, he was also asked to jog at intervals. Before, we would go for morning walks on an empty stomach, but Coach Anukriti suggested that he eat sabja seeds and begin his morning with lemon water.
She set up a morning breakfast routine, midmorning fruits, and also guided him on what to eat and avoid. Along his health journey, they used to make frequent calls and change his routine as per his schedule. Slowly, he was asked to add more salads to his meals. Later, the sabja seeds were replaced with jeera water – which helped him greatly, he says.
He was also introduced to intermittent fasting, which he says benefited him a lot. Apart from this, based on his schedule, he was also suggested exercises he could perform and was asked to meditate as well.
Right from the beginning of his journey with GOQii, Nitya Kishore says that everyone in the GOQii ecosystem was helpful. Even the classes he attended on GOQii PRO were detailed, and the coaches guided him well. He said that the coach was very understanding and introduced changes slowly as per his schedule and lifestyle, so it wasn’t too overwhelming for him to make changes suddenly.
How did these changes help Nitya Kishore Upadhyay?
Due to all these changes, Nitya Kishore managed to lose 12kg in 6 months. His cholesterol levels and Vitamin B12 levels are also normal. “Nityaji is a very good player and follows all my suggestions and habits regularly,” says Coach Anukriti. She further added that, “He is feeling more healthy and energetic than before.”
His friends and family say that he looks younger and more dynamic than before. He has also been actively advocating GOQii to his friends and family members. He says, “I want to thank Mr. Vishal Gondal for keeping such good people who guide and motivate others”.
He is impressed with GOQii and always appreciates how GOQii is working for people. Like Mr. Nitya Kishore Upadhyay, would you like GOQii to work for you as well? Know someone who needs help managing lifestyle conditions?
