Only the fit know how fabulous it feels
Won Best nutritionist award at the vogue beauty awards
All diets fail when they become boring. After all how long can you live on boiled veggies and dry roti? Suman Agarwal conceived of Selfcare when she observed that obesity was fast getting to be a global issue and even though different solutions have been sought, researched and tried out, the results were short-lived.
Suman set out looking for a solution where weight loss and a fit body were synonymous and where the individual could stick to his or her choice of foods, after becoming aware of healthy food choices. If Suman Agarwal is being celebrated as the new age guru of fitness and health, it is only because when she sets a diet programme, she is actually fine tuning a health plan that you can live by forever.
