Health, Weight Loss and Lifestyle Diseases Management Redefined.
Embarking on a journey towards well-being often begins with a simple desire: to look good, feel healthy, and reversing lifestyle diseases. However, in a world where health, fitness, and wellness intersect, it’s crucial to recognize the nuanced differences. Health is the foundation, the very essence that propels us forward, while fitness encapsulates the physical prowess that contributes to a vibrant life. Wellness, on the other hand, is the holistic orchestration of both, that combines balanced nutrition, exercises, and mental wellbeing.
As we gracefully step into our 30s and beyond, it becomes less about the numbers on the scale and more about the intricate balance of improving health, maintaining fitness, and radiating vitality. It’s a shift from the notion that weight loss is the ultimate goal to the understanding that health improvement is the true game-changer. Lifestyle diseases knock at the door around the 30s and beyond; the goal should also be to reverse lifestyle diseases
Let’s debunk a common myth: not every diabetic person is overweight. The narrative around health should not be confined by preconceived notions but should embrace the diversity of individual health profiles. Our approach at NuvoVivo goes beyond the conventional. We introduce Medical Fitness—an approach backed by science, blending the art of fitness with the precision of medical insights.
In our world, the goal is not to lose weight and then become healthy; it’s about elevating health, ensuring metabolic well-being, and allowing weight loss to naturally follow suit. We champion a transformative journey where science meets fitness, and the path to wellness is guided by medical expertise. Join us in rewriting the narrative of health, fitness, and wellness—one scientifically curated program at a time.
Weight Loss Wonderland: Transforming Lives Beyond the Scale
Embarking on a weight loss journey involves more than just shedding a few kilograms—it’s about achieving a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle. Our approach prioritizes body fat loss while preserving and, if possible, building muscle mass. We advocate for a healthy pace of weight loss, typically around 3-4 kgs per month to ensure a healthy transformation, achieved through smart nutrition choices rather than crash dieting or meal replacement shakes.
Crucially, our focus extends beyond the number on the scale. We emphasize the importance of a commensurate centimeter loss along with weight loss, particularly around the belly. Fat tissue is less dense than muscle tissue; 1 kg of fat takes up more space than 1 kg of muscle, and true transformation involves reshaping the body as one loses a lot of inches around the body as one loses fat.
Creating a calorie deficit is essential for weight loss, and we believe in achieving this through a balanced combination of exercise and nutrition planning. Tailored exercises factor in individual medical and physical conditions, ensuring a safe and effective approach. For instance, individuals with piles or hernia require specific considerations in their exercise routines as compared to another individual with knee pain or lower back pain.
It’s vital to recognize that you become healthy and thus lose weight and not the other way around. Improved metabolic parameters and health are the primary goals, with weight loss as a natural byproduct. Such a transformation will truly reverse your age. Join our program to embark on such a transformative journey towards a healthier, more vibrant you.
Gaining More Than Numbers: A Journey to Healthy Weight Gain
Embarking on a weight gain journey is not just about adding numbers on the scale—it’s about fostering a healthy and balanced transformation. Our approach prioritizes muscle gain while minimizing the accumulation of excess body fat. Weight gain should not equate to compromising overall health; it’s about achieving a physique that’s both robust and healthy.
Gaining weight can be achieved by incorporating calorie-dense foods, but the key lies in prudent choices. Indiscriminate consumption may lead to a significant increase in fat mass in the body and serum cholesterol, negatively impacting overall health. Our program focuses on ensuring that weight gain predominantly consists of muscle mass, promoting a healthier and more resilient body.
Understanding the realistic limits of muscle gain is crucial. For males, the monthly muscle gain ranges from 400-700 grams, while for females, it’s around 300-600 grams. These figures are influenced by various factors, including age, genetics, nutrition, sleep, and recovery. Exercise plays a pivotal role in this transformation, with a carefully planned program that includes targeted exercises to stimulate muscle growth.
Macro planning, encompassing protein, fat, and carbs, is a critical aspect of this program. We tailor the nutrition plan to complement the exercise regimen, ensuring that the weight gain journey is not just about the numbers but about cultivating a healthier, stronger you. Enrol in our program for a stronger and healthier you – A Healthy Future Awaits!
General Wellness: Balancing Nutrition and Fitness for a Vibrant You
Health, fitness & wellness are intricately linked to the choices we make in our daily lives. At the heart of this is the importance of a balanced meal, incorporating adequate protein, fats, and carbohydrates. It’s crucial not to glorify one nutrient over the others or demonize any, as each plays a unique role in our overall well-being. Tailoring these nutrients based on individual parameters such as medical conditions and age is key to achieving optimal health.
Micronutrients, found in abundance in vegetables and fruits, are equally vital. A balanced approach ensures the body receives essential vitamins and minerals, contributing to overall vitality.
In the realm of exercise, the trio of cardio, weight training, and yoga each holds its own significance. Just as with macronutrients, there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to workouts. A harmonious blend, tailored to individual needs, contributes to holistic well-being.
Ultimately, achieving health and wellness involves carefully balancing nutrients, engaging in diverse exercises, and managing stress while prioritizing quality sleep. Our comprehensive approach helps clients strike this balance, enhancing metabolism, improving body composition with increased muscle mass, and effectively reversing the aging process. Join us on the journey to holistic health and well-being, where every choice brings you closer to a more vibrant and resilient you – Wellness Begins Here!
Fueling Champions: Elevate Your Sports Nutrition and Fitness Game
Elevate your athletic performance with our Sports Nutrition program, meticulously designed to improve sports performance, without impacting overall health. Understanding that an athlete’s dietary requirements extend beyond mere performance enhancement, we tailor our approach to address both of these facets. Recognizing that the total calorie needs of an athlete are elevated, we curate nutrition plans with a heightened focus on protein to facilitate optimal muscle and tissue repair. The protein quantum is intricately calibrated, considering factors such as the type of sport, age, and weight of the athlete.
Carbohydrates assume a pivotal role in fueling the body for higher performance, and our strategies are adapted to the unique demands of different sports. For instance, endurance-driven sports activities may benefit from carbohydrate loading to maximize glycogen stores, enhancing performance. Hydration and electrolyte balance are paramount; however unnecessary and excessive supplementation may lead to electrolyte excess and associated health issues.
While a select few supplements can amplify performance, our approach involves nuanced incorporation, considering variables such as overall heath, age, goals, and skill level of the athlete. Regular adjustments to nutrition plans based on training phases (pre-season, in-season, off-season) and competition schedules ensure peak performance.
Monitoring extends beyond performance metrics, incorporating assessments of body composition and other vital parameters. Recognizing the distinctive considerations for athletes below 20 years, we also have to balance the nutrition needs of the body’s growth along with performance improvement in sporting activity, ensuring a holistic and sustainable approach to sports nutrition – Fuel Your Performance!
Mastering Diabetes: Optimize Insulin Sensitivity, Today!
Type 2 Diabetes is a lifestyle disease where our body struggles to efficiently absorb glucose, keeping blood sugar levels consistently high. This happens due to insulin resistance, where the body becomes less responsive to insulin—the hormone responsible for glucose uptake. Simply reducing carbs is not a permanent solution as the insulin resistance persists.
While opting for low glycemic foods, incorporating fiber and protein can help manage diabetes, it only addresses half the issue. This approach only buys some time for glucose absorption but doesn’t resolve insulin resistance. True diabetes reversal or remission occurs when the body improves its capability to absorb glucose from the blood, tackling the remaining 50% of the problem.
This is achievable only through a scientific exercise regimen tailored to your health and physical conditions alongside a calorie-adjusted nutrition plan.
Moreover, diabetes management goes beyond dietary changes like increasing protein and fiber, or exercises. It also involves assessing complications like kidney and nerve health, as well as comorbidities such as cholesterol and fatty liver. Our medical fitness approach that involves both exercises and calorie planning not only enhances your appearance but gradually reduces reliance on medications (possibly) by improving insulin sensitivity and overall health – Optimize Insulin Sensitivity, Today!
Revitalize Your Liver: A Comprehensive Approach to Liver Health
Fatty liver is diagnosed when more than 5-10% of the liver’s weight comes from accumulated fat. The extent of fatty liver can vary, progressing from NAFLD to NASH, fibrosis, and potentially cirrhosis. Conclusive diagnosis often involves blood tests, specifically Liver Function Tests, and an ultrasound.
The encouraging news is that fatty liver can be entirely reversed with proper management. This includes reducing visceral fat around the belly and addressing fat accumulation in liver cells (hepatocytes). It’s crucial to approach weight loss in a way that preserves muscle mass, avoiding crash diets or meal replacement shakes that may lead to muscle loss. Such approaches could impair metabolism and increase susceptibility to rapid weight gain and associated metabolic disorders.
Including vitamin E-rich foods in your diet can help reduce oxidative stress on the liver. The key to reversing fatty liver lies in a well-structured nutrition plan and exercise regimen tailored to your conditions and needs. This comprehensive approach is essential for achieving sustainable and effective results. Join our scientifically tailored diet and exercise programs and improve your liver health – Revitalize Your Liver Health!
Commit to Heart Health: Nurturing Cardiovascular Resilience
Maintaining a healthy heart involves more than just avoiding fatty foods. Key markers of heart health often include managing cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Managing cholesterol involves a combination of managing both the quality and quantity of calories. Reducing saturated and trans fats is crucial, while incorporating heart-healthy foods, such as omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants, is equally important. That said it’s worth noting that even the healthiest foods, if consumed excessively, can raise cholesterol levels.
To address high blood pressure, adopting a sodium-controlled diet is key. The American Heart Association recommends consuming less than 2 grams of sodium daily (equivalent to about 1 teaspoon of table salt). Additionally, ensuring an adequate intake of potassium, magnesium, and omega-3, coupled with losing excess body fat, enhances blood pressure management.
While exercises can improve heart health, one need to approach exercises with caution. Oversimplified notions, such as cardio exercises to improve heart health, can be extremely dangerous, especially for those with an already existing heart ailment. That said, exercise, when structured appropriately and scientifically, will improve heart health and also aids in weight management. They should, however, be tailored to fit individual needs and health conditions.

Commit to Thyroid Wellness: A Holistic Approach to Thyroid Health
Thyroid health is a delicate balance, and understanding how to nourish it is crucial. Cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli and kale, are nutrient-rich but can interfere with thyroid function if consumed raw in large amounts. However, when thoroughly cooked, these vegetables are beneficial for health, as cooking deactivates compounds (goitrogens) that may affect thyroid hormone production.
Hypothyroidism, more common among women, occurs when the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough hormones. This condition can lead to reduced metabolic parameters, contributing to weight gain. The thyroid plays a key role in regulating metabolism, and when its function is compromised, the body may burn calories at a slower rate, making weight management challenging. Recognizing the symptoms of hypothyroidism is vital, as they can include fatigue, weight gain, cold sensitivity, and changes in skin and hair texture. It’s essential for individuals, especially women, to be proactive about thyroid health and make necessary lifestyle changes to stay healthy and not gain weight.
In addition to cooked cruciferous vegetables, maintaining iodine levels through sources like seafood and iodized salt supports thyroid function. A balanced diet, rich in selenium, zinc, and vitamin D, is also beneficial. Tailoring nutrition and exercise plans to support metabolic health is crucial, and regular check-ups can help monitor thyroid function and address any imbalances.
By understanding the nuances of thyroid health and adopting a well-informed approach to nutrition and lifestyle, individuals can better support their thyroid function and overall well-being. Take the first step towards improving thyroid health – enrol in our program. Empower your well-being with tailored guidance, personalized nutrition, and a journey towards lasting transformation – Commit to Thyroid Wellness!

Hormone Harmony: Managing PCOS for a Balanced Life
PCOS, a complex hormonal condition, often involves insulin resistance, triggering heightened testosterone production by the ovaries. This disrupts the delicate interplay between the hormones FSH, LH, Estrogen, and Progestin, which regulate the menstrual cycle.
Our program focuses on tailored exercises, especially weight training to enhance insulin sensitivity and optimise glucose utilization by the muscles. In dietary strategy, we emphasize the inclusion of good fats, particularly monounsaturated fats, as sex hormones are fat-derived. Managing the glycemic index of carbohydrates is also crucial in maintaining the hormonal balance. Distinguishing between menorrhagia (heavy and frequent bleeding) and amenorrhea (absence of menstrual periods), we recognize the unique lifestyle adjustments required for each.
In menorrhagia, low haemoglobin can lead to severe breathlessness, while in amenorrhea, the increased endometrial thickness increases susceptibility to fibroids and even cancer. Our lifestyle approach acknowledges and is in line with the specialized therapeutic management gynaecologists provide for both these conditions.
Join our program to make a necessary lifestyle that will bring back the intricate balance between the hormones and manage PCOS – Hormone Harmony Awaits!

Joint Harmony: A Personalized Approach to Arthritis & Gout Management
Arthritis, with its diverse types like OA (Osteoarthritis) and RA (Rheumatoid arthritis), presents distinct challenges to joint health. OA, often a result of wear and tear due to factors like excessive physical activity, obesity, or low vitamin D, requires targeted strategies including weight loss. RA, an autoimmune condition causing joint tenderness and inflammation, demands a nuanced approach.
Our program addresses these differences, emphasizing dietary choices to manage inflammation. For OA, a well-structured exercise plan focuses on improving muscles around affected joints, reducing wear and tear. RA management involves keeping inflammation low through a carefully curated diet.
Gout, another form of arthritis linked to increased uric acid levels, necessitates specific dietary strategies. Our program guides you in reducing s.uric acid levels through nutrition (carefully choosing protein sources), promoting joint health and overall well-being. Join us to navigate the intricacies of arthritis, empowering yourself for improved joint function and a more active, comfortable life – Joint Harmony Begins Here!
Breathe Easy: Reclaim Your Vitality with Respiratory Health Programs
Tailored to address unique needs, this program encompasses Asthma, COPD, Sleep Apnea, and more. Understanding the nuances of each condition, we craft personalized lifestyle strategies to enhance your well-being.
For Asthma, our approach extends beyond generic solutions, focusing on identifying trigger foods and environmental factors that contribute to allergies. Reducing inflammation, improving immunity and cultivating a healthy lifestyle form the cornerstone of our strategy.
Managing COPD, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis involves a slightly different, yet a meticulous plan. We emphasize anti-inflammatory nutrition, incorporating antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids to mitigate inflammation. Magnesium-rich foods, known for their bronchodilator effects, may be included in your nutrition plan to alleviate symptoms. It goes without saying that weight management is crucial. Based on your physical conditions, we may introduce interval training—a balance of moderate-intensity exercise for a short time frame, accompanied by rest, to enhance cardiovascular fitness without triggering breathing difficulties. Controlled breathing techniques, such as pursed-lip or diaphragmatic breathing, further contribute to improved lung health.
Sleep Apnea is yet another respiratory condition caused due to obesity where the muscles at the back of the throat relax excessively during sleep, causing a blockage or obstruction of the airway. This leads to snoring, choking, gasping and morning headaches. Sleep Apnea poses a significant risk to the heart and brain as it reduces oxygen saturation during sleep, leading to cardiac arrest and brain hypoxia in acute conditions. Our approach revolves around reducing your excess body weight in a healthy manner through a carefully crafted nutrition and exercise plan.
We will also prescribe certain exercises specifically targeting the muscles of the mouth, throat, and airways, aiming to enhance muscle tone and minimize the likelihood of airway collapse, promoting safer and more restful sleep. Our goal will be to make you healthy and gradually take you off the CPAP machine, of course with your doctor’s advice and approval.
This program is not a one-size-fits-all approach; it’s an expertly tailored roadmap to better respiratory health. With our guidance, you can breathe easier, sleep more soundly, and reclaim the vitality that respiratory conditions may have momentarily obscured. Join our programs now! – Breathe Easy, Reclaim Your Vitality!
Empower Your Resilience: Living with Autoimmune Diseases
Autoimmune diseases, a diverse group affecting various organs, present unique challenges to health. Conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, among others, involve the immune system mistakenly attacking the body.
While lifestyle management may not cure these conditions, it plays a pivotal role in improving overall health and reducing complications. Each autoimmune disease requires tailored strategies; for instance, managing joint health in rheumatoid arthritis, or addressing skin and organ involvement in lupus. Both diet and exercise strategies are a lot more nuanced and depend on the organs impacted while managing auto-immune diseases.
Stress management is crucial, as it can trigger autoimmune flares. Our program emphasizes exercises like meditation, yoga, and breathing techniques to alleviate stress and promote mental well-being. The dietary strategy involves reducing inflammation and involving nutrient-rich wholesome food that nourishes the body and improves health.
While we cannot entirely eliminate autoimmune diseases, empowering yourself with lifestyle modifications significantly enhances health, and quality of life, and reduces the impact of complications. Join us to navigate the complexities of autoimmune diseases, embracing personalized strategies for a healthier, balanced life. – Empower Your Resilience!

Secure Your Vitality: Tailored Programs for Elderly Health
Nutrition becomes a crucial component as we age, particularly in combatting age-related challenges such as sarcopenia—a gradual loss of muscle mass. This muscle loss not only impacts mobility but also slows down metabolism, making individuals more susceptible to various metabolic disorders. Our program is meticulously designed to address this concern, incorporating measures to slow down muscle loss and foster a more resilient metabolism in the elderly.
With advancing age and often combined with a sedentary lifestyle, there’s an increased risk of metabolic and lifestyle diseases like diabetes, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. Adopting a healthy diet and staying physically active are paramount in mitigating these risks.
Micronutrient deficiencies become more prevalent with age, especially in calcium and Vitamin D, leading to conditions like osteoporosis and osteoarthritis (OA). The decline in estrogen (for women) or testosterone (for men) levels further exacerbates these effects. Additionally, Vitamin B-12 deficiency is a common concern due to poor absorption and inadequate dietary availability.
Our elderly nutrition program is designed to holistically address these challenges, ensuring a balanced diet that caters to muscle preservation, metabolic health, prevention of micronutrient deficiencies and reversing lifestyle diseases. It’s not just about aging gracefully but thriving with vitality and well-being. Take the first step towards a healthier you—enroll in our program today! – Secure Your Vitality!
Secure Your Child’s Wellness: Guiding Kids on the Path to Health
From infancy to adolescence, the nutritional choices we make for our children play a pivotal role in shaping their health, immunity, and overall well-being. Recognizing the distinct needs at various stages of development is essential for fostering optimal growth and development.
During the early years, calcium becomes a crucial component for bone calcification and growth. Simultaneously, iron requirements rise as blood volume increases through the growth stage. The importance of adequate intake of Vit-C and Vit B-9 (Folate/Folic Acid) cannot be overstated, as they play vital roles in cell replication and cellular metabolism. Protein, a fundamental building block, holds immense importance in the development journey. Essential for muscle growth, immune function, and overall cellular health, protein is a key component in our Kids’ Nutrition Program.
As children transition beyond 8-10 years of age, they enter a stage marked by the second growth spurt, often coinciding with puberty. This phase sees the gradual manifestation of secondary sexual characteristics, sometimes accompanied by weight gain. Staying active and engaged in physical activities becomes paramount, given the increased blood volume and the common occurrence of iron deficiency anaemia.
Ensuring an ample supply of Omega-3 fatty acid DHA, found in fish oil, becomes especially important during this stage. DHA plays a crucial role in brain and cognitive development, influencing emotion, reasoning, behaviour regulation, and analytical skills.
