Watching my clients progress, is what motivates me the most. A few snippets below of some of my treasured clients.
Mr Hanuman Tripathi, Mumbai
Working with Dr Pooja has been sheer pleasure, because of her deep understanding of Indian food and how it should be consumed to manage our weight. She recommends you to consume food from your own culture that one is accustomed to since childhood. Dr Pooja asks you to focus on portions & timings. Also she watches over your lifestyle and gives you nice health tips, work outs or walks; none of which are tough to follow. Pooja takes deep interest in every client, calls regularly to monitor diet, life style and changes in weight. This ensures one gets proper review, frequent course correction and sustainable weight loss. To me Pooja never recommended forgien foods, supplements or packaged foods. She spoke to me without fail...
Mrs Seema Mahajan, Mumbai
I met Dr Pooja 5/6 years ago. My experience has been really fruitful in not only losing weight but my overall parameters. Blood reports also showed a massive improvement. Her way of explaining the diets is so impressive that I can't ever think of going to any other dietician. The diet charts she provides are not at all complicated. She is excellent at her job and I would recommend her to anyone looking to healthy lifestyle in a heartbeat.
Mirul Patel Bhavsar
I wanted to write to you for quite some time. Its more then a year now since I have last consulted you. You would be happy to know that I have loss as much as 8 kgs by November 2019 and at 63 kg as on date. This is in spite of crazy work schedule and almost nil exercise. Your diet has become my staple. I am not following eating every 2 hours but at every 4 hours roughly. I still laugh at myself when i first bluntly refused to follow your diet and fought with my husband for 2 days for making me do this. I used to be the believer of 'live to eat' rather then 'eat to live'. I still go by that philosophy of mine but occasional treats are not harming. In fact, my entire appetite has reduced substantially and so even if i want to eat anything, my portion size is mere 3 to...
Ms Pooja Kaushal, Ludhiana, India - Skype Consultation Client
I was introduced to Dr.Pooja Sharma about an year ago, by a common friend who had been benefitted by her program earlier. After joining her weight reduction program, I have lost about 25 kg in 10 months, just with diet and moderate exercise. I have always found her ready to attend to my queries and guided time to time. Weight reduction has been a wonderful change for me, thanks to Dr.Pooja.

Dieter Rasquinha , Mumbai
I Joined Dr Pooja Sharma’s diet programme after careful consideration and comparing it against other diet programs which are marketed extensively. Dr. Pooja was recommended by known sources and I decided to meet with her to decide if it suits my lifestyle and schedule . During my first meeting , I explained my current lifestyle to her, reason I needed to lose weight and asked her what her diet consisted of. I was very happy to hear that it did not include any supplements but only regular home food . Her main aim is to correct lifestyle, eating habits and balance the diet which is a must for a healthy body. The diet’s goal is to increase the body’s metabolism with correct eating cycles and portion control which then results in weight loss and a healthier body.Her sessions...
Ankita Sharma, International Circuit Squash Player
Being a sportsperson all my life, and having trained in the international circuit, I've been used to great amounts of strength and physical activity. Thus, making my weight loss process an even more herculent task! I needed to loose weight to perform better, but all diets were in vain... But after joining Dr. Pooja Sharma, and following simple rituals and steps of her diet, the journey of my weight loss has indeed been a miraculous one. She has been the catalyst that opened my eyes to what I was doing wrong and played a huge role in enhancing my performance in my squash tournaments! It is no longer an effort to eat healthful food, it has now become a way of life! Not just a great doctor, but a guide, a mentor, who has always encouraged me to achieve my goals with flying colours!!
Sandeep Bangia, Marathoner, Mumbai
Pooja created a very flexible, easy to pursue and easy on the palate diet plan for me. This ensured that following the plan was not a drudgery. I am into running, so Pooja's diet plan coupled with regular running got me the desired results not just in terms of weight loss but also enhanced freshness and energy. Pooja's friendly demeanour mixed with the right modicum of disciplining worked very well for me.
Anuradha Kshirsagar, Dubai
I had been putting on weight over the past couple of years and was also feeling short of energy even while doing my day-to-day chores. I wanted to reduce the flab, but the low energy held me back from going out for any kind of exercise. It was a classic ‘chicken and egg’ story! It was when one of my friends here in Dubai mentioned to me about Dr. Pooja! I had noticed a remarkable difference in her, since I last saw her a 3-4 months ago! She spoke very high about Dr Pooja’s weight reduction program, and that’s when I decided that I’m going to go for it! The most striking feature of this program is that it allowed me to have most of the regular food stuff as before, and I did not have to go for any artificial powders etc. The meals were timed so well, that it ha...
Krithika Manikandan, Dubai
My basic intention of joining Pooja was to reduce my bodyweight. I was initially very reluctant to join any diet program as I am a picky eater and seriously cannot eat raw veggie or salads for long period of time. To my surprise, Dr. Pooja understood my likes and dislikes. She gave me a customized diet accordingly and made sure I am eating right quantity at the right time. I was not starving in the diet rather I was eating healthy. She made me understand the healthy eating lifestyle which I will follow in my life time. She is reachable at any point of time and was patient enough to answer my silly questions. I would 100 percent recommend her to all my friends.
Apoorva & Chetan Mehra, Dubai
We started our journey with Dr. Pooja on a very skeptical note. Not due to lack of faith in her abilities but due to confidence in our own ability to undermine the process given our extreme love for food and drinks! But as time progressed with the discipline enforced by Dr. Pooja we began seeing and feeling the benefits of the journey from fat to fit! The compliments from friends further motivated us to stay on course and with the constant motivation and support from Dr. Pooja we managed to achieve our goals. And the best part of the whole process is that Dr. Pooja not only guides and encourages you, she has this special knack of making a weight loss program completely fun and enjoyable instead of what is normally considered an arduous process. Towards the end we started looking forward to...
Ms Lakshmi Kannan
When I started my diet with Dr. Pooja , I hardly weighed 35 kgs. Being 23 years of age, my weight was too low. I tried every possible way to gain but nothing worked. Then got introduced to Pooja through my family friend. I am so grateful that it happened. She made sure that she got all my details and made my diet chart according to my liking. She was always there to answer each and every query of mine so patiently. Slowly I started gaining weight and making so much progress. BY the end of the session, I had gained about 11 kgs. I currently weigh 46 kgs now. I am perfect for my height. All the credit goes to doc Pooja and no one else. She helped me gain weight when I thought it was nearly impossible. Thank you ma'am. :)

"Dr. Pooja has helped us achieve our weight loss goals, which we never thought was possible. We lost nearly 20 kgs and 15kgs respectively over a period of 4 months and have been successful in maintaining our ideal weight as well. Dr. Pooja is a professional who considers your overall wellbeing including any medical conditions in her customized diet plans. Her program is flexible and adaptable across dietary preferences (e.g. Indian, western, veg, non-veg etc.) She is always accessible and responds to queries promptly (however silly they might be). We have no hesitation in recommending that if you are committed, then Dr. Pooja will make you achieve your weight goals. –H. Bhadra & S. Bhadra - Bahrain"
Dr. Somasundaram Ramkumar, Saint Albans, UK
Pooja is a good motivator and encouraging person. Her diet plans are well thought and effective. I lost 12kgs in about 12 weeks without too much trouble. The learning experience for me a practicing doctor was portion control. I thoroughly recommend Pooja. Dr.Ramkumar UK.
Ms Pankajam GV, Chennai
Before I consulted Dr. Pooja, I weighed about 72 kgs. I had so many health problems as I was over weight. soon, I even started having body pain because of excess weight and was constantly feeling weak and lethargic. Then I came across Dr. Pooja through one of my cousin's abroad. She recommended me to Dr. Pooja saying she is one of the best in her field. I am glad I took my cousin's advice and consulted Dr.Pooja. At first, Pooja took detailed information and all my reports and went through it thoroughly and planned my diet in accordance to that. She boosted my confidence and helped me through the whole process. Now, I weigh 61 kgs. Dr. Pooja not only addressed my weight issue but all my health problems. It wouldn't have been possible without her support. Even now she constantly keeps in tou...
Manikandan S. P. - Dubai / Doha
Dear Pooja, I would like to express my sincere thanks to you for making me undergo the program and making me realize what Eating Right is all about. The program was so comprehensive that it covered the food pyramid according to the likes and dislikes of the individual. While weight loss was not my real concern, I was more focussed on getting out of chronic medications as early as possible. As disclosed to you earlier, I had significant changes in my blood sugar and cholesterol levels that were completely attributed to the diet patterns along with physical activities. And thanks for letting me discover so many natural remedies for treating diabetes and cholesterol - it makes me think why we have adopted the current lifestyle. As the saying goes that you cannot clap with one hand - we really...
Nidhi Dora, Milton Keynes, UK
Being a typical Punjabi my love for food (and drink) is not unusual. Before contacting Dr Pooja I was convinced that my punju genes means I can never be below a certain weight! Clothes sizes were just increasing and so was the number on weighting scale. I was introduced to Dr Pooja by a friend who herself had been thru a remarkable weight loss. I contacted Dr Pooja with lots of skepticism..how can it work..she is so far..how will she know what I can or can’t do..what if I am always hungry and many more! First call itself was very comforting..her commitment for me was evident and more than that the faith that I can do it! She was always available through whatsapp/skype or calls..encouraging me, motivating me and ensuring that I don’t give up. I went for holidays, fell ill in bet...
Anuradha R Palan, Mumbai
I had a great experience with Dr. Pooja's diet plan. With the recommended diet and everyday 45 mins walk I not only lost 11 kgs in 2 months but feel more energetic, healthy and young. Dr. Pooja’s had advised me some tests which was helpful to get some deficiency cured in my body and according she gave me the diet plan. Dr. Pooja's diet plan is simple and healthy and helps me loose some amount of my fat every day and which also motivates me to reach my desired weight target. I have already started referring Dr. Pooja to my friends.
Shweta Shetty, Mumbai
I went to her after pregnancy when I was experiencing fatigue,she made a chart consisting of a well balanced diet and also ensuring my kid gets all nutrients since I was still feeding.Weight loss we will target later, now eat good food for your and your kids health, that is what she said and believe me her diet plan really helped me. Later after a year, I went to her for weight loss. She makes a diet chart according to your body type and lifestyle and changes it as and when required.30 mins brisk walk along with following the diet is all that she asks. Pregnancy weight loss is one of the toughest to shed but with Dr Pooja it was a smooth journey of four months..she occasionally allowed me to binge too:)... I am back to my pre pregnancy weight and all my clothes now fit me... Thanks a lot P...
Harshit Gupta, Mumbai
99 to 84 in 2 & half Months Not by not eating anything or less eating, but by eating lots of healthy meal on proper time. Fortunate to meet Dr Pooja Sharma who has not only changed my body structure but also changed my lifestyle by prescribing ideal diet. The program which seems to be difficult for a foodie like me has successfully accomplished with a reduction of 15 KGS. It was really nice to take the diet program under consultation of Pooja. The diet plan which she recommends is much more comfortable than what is generally found online. She studies the complete health history of the patient and then accordingly prescribe the diet. The way of her treatment is very distinct. What you can expect from her is 1. Complete Study of the health 2. Flexibility in terms of Diet chart 3. Al...
Monna Arora, Mumbai
Hi, I took a diet plan for 3 months from Pooja to gain weight. I have always been struggling for years to gain weight, oscillating between 47- 49 kgs. But with Pooja's diet plan I am now 50.6 kgs and feel healthy and strong. I am so happy that with eating the right diet, I have achieved it, as earlier I used to have Ayurveda tablets to feel hungry. I still have to gain 2 kgs more and it seems possible now:) Pooja has been very patient with me as I kept losing weight initially during the diet plan. Thank you Pooja for all the efforts you put in. Monna Arora!
Mrs Rashmi Sinha
After ten weeks of being a patient of Dr Pooja Sharma, my lifestyle has completely changed for better. I contacted Her for nutrition and weight loss counselling after a very high recommendation from my cousin. At 55 yrs of age, when metabolism slows down , it's a big challenge to lose weight and then maintain it. With Dr Pooja's program, I learned how to understand food and how my body works with it. Through her diet plan, I was able to lose 5 kg in 2.5 months and I have been successful in maintaining it now for almost over 2 months now. Dr Pooja exhibits a high level of professionalism and sincerity. Her comprehensive approach and in-depth personalised assessment make her a very unique dietician and nutritionist.
Amita Sinha, Mumbai / Chennai
I was grossly overweight at 79 kgs and was desperate to find a sensible way to lose the excess weight. Staying in Raheja Vihar, I was aware of Pooja’s presence at Crystal Centre and decided to approach her. I started consulting her in August 2012 and was very impressed with her sincerity and compassion. She listened patiently to my story and how I had reached my situation in terms of weight and made a complete note of my daily routine and diet. She started gradually keeping in mind my taste preferences and the results were visible from the first week itself, a gradual reduction of 0.5 kg. She encouraged me with positive remarks and I continued with her diet for almost 5 months and lost 10 kgs, which was my target. The best part was that I was never hungry or felt deprived of good foo...
Sumit Mitra , Mumbai
I was referred to Dr Pooja Sharma by a friend as I wanted to loose weight in a healthy way as there were medical complications. I had tried different exercises and more renowned agencies with little success. What I found unique about Pooja’s recommendation was a complete understanding of my lifestyle and habits. She tailored the diet plan in a way which I could easily follow. Her counselling and follow ups were very prompt and the results were there to see. Pooja is very committed to make her clients become healthy and live a sustainable healthy lifestyle.
Vikas Mittal, Mumbai
Before I started with Dr Pooja, I was skeptical for all the prior conditioning: weight loss is difficult. Weight loss means staying hungry. Weight loss is temporary. Permanent weight loss takes time. All these myths were busted, and I say this with conviction, having lost 14.5 kgs from my prior 90.9 kgs and my program ended a year back. Dr Pooja is a whiz: she is dedicated and knows her stuff. And it’s not just the weight loss, it’s a life choice.
Manvendra Singh, Mumbai / Manila
I started consulting Pooja sometime last year as per the advice of my physician. Given my unsuccessful history of losing weight I was unsure whether I was going to achieve much. At first I found Pooja's advice unreasonable & difficult to follow. As time would prove it she clearly knew what she was doing. In a period of 8 months - believe it or not - I lost more than 15 kgs without feeling weak or tired at any point in time & without resorting to supplements or anything artificial to aid weight loss. If you want to lose weight & do it the right, healthy, way I recommend you see Pooja now. She is very good at what she does & if you follow her words of wisdom you will get the results you desire (& do not forget to stick to your side of the bargain!)
Dr Atish Laddad, Pediatrician, Mumbai
For me, the PERSON OF THE YEAR 2015 was definitely DR POOJA SHARMA. I had been doing half marathons since the last 2 years and planned to do a full marathon in 2016. I was weighing around 91 kg and used to manage it to get it down to 88 kg with all my running and exercise. But at 88kg, I used to get immensely hungry and my weight used to jump back to 90+kg. I was not able to break the 88kg barrier. Then i decided to join Dr Pooja Sharma’s program after recommendation from a friend. I was mentally ready for it. I managed to lose around 10 kgs over a period of 9 months but the best parts of the program were:- 1. I never felt those hunger pangs apart from the initial 1-2 months 2. I never looked malnourished, tired or dehydrated 3. My weight didn't bounce back - the diet program was wel...
Bharti Dekate, Mumbai
Pooja's diet plans are not just effective, but also help you manage overall health (not just lose weight). She is a considerate planner who aims for solutions and takes keen interest in her client's health. My family members and friends (i have referred) have derived significant benefits by following her advice. I do hope that her expertise will continue to benefit many more.
Vijaya Kamath, Mumbai
Dr Pooja is a dietitian par excellence. My experience with her has been enriching & gave me the desired results in the time frame she put up. She is an expert at helping people lose weight without crash diets. She recommends nutritious eating & ensures suitability as per her client's medical requirements. I would like to recommend her for a lifestyle change on sensible eating for all.
Rashmi Bathla, Dubai
I had met Dr Pooja in Dec 2014, when I was around 89.7 Kgs. Today, at 78, I would really recommend her diet which has made me lead a healthy lifestyle and a healthier diet. Her diet has been easy to follow and she has always given options, if needed for the diet. I am very happy with her diet plans and would recommend all for the same
Col Sanket Pande
I consulted Dr Pooja in Mar 2015 on advice of my wife. I felt I was fit but was 12 kgs overweight. I was typically blaming my weight on office stress, social eating and drinking. Dr Pooja put me through a 10 weeks programme. Besides losing about 10 Kgs in these weeks, the positives were; a completely drug or ‘crazy diet plan’ free program, an energetic and 'Being Full' feeling through the day, super-efficient digestion, a general glow on the face and a great feeling of wellbeing due to the body shaping up. In my late 40s, I rediscovered my energies, thanks to Dr Pooja. What started as 40 minutes of daily physical activity advised by her, eventually turned into a passion for long distance running and graduated to an addiction for long runs. Have run a dozen Half Marathons and a...
Sridhar Krishnan & Kripa Sridhar
I am a consultant and travel is my middle name. I was about 230 pounds when I was introduced to Dr. Pooja Sharma by my sister who was doing her program. I was at first skeptical of any diet program. But when I was able to lose about 10 pounds in the first month, I was hooked. I used the diet given by Pooja as a guideline and came up with my variations to eat the food. What I liked about the program was the fact that it teaches you how to eat. I also have come to understand that what I had been eating during the diet program is actually sufficient for the body to carry out normal activities. I have in total lost about 60 pounds in 4 - 5 months. I will definitely recommend the program to everyone. I am not able to take a photo with pants on as none of them fit me anymore and I had to do a fu...
Smitha & Venkatesh, London, UK
We were recommended Pooja's diet plan by some of our friends who had already seen the benefits from the programme. When we started we were not sure if this would work for us as Pooja was in India and we were in England and never had a face to face consultation. Our only interaction was over phone, Skype and Whatsapp. Moreover, we were also concerned if our lifestyle and eating habits would fit with the diet programme. In the first sitting itself Pooja assured that the benefits of the programme will take care of all our concerns and it really did put our ambiguities to a complete rest. Even though we were living miles apart and in a different time zone, we found Pooja to be very approachable and contactable (almost 24x7). Also we found Pooja to be very knowledgeable in the subject and was a...
Navin Agarwal, Mumbai
I travel a lot. Almost 20 days a month, in different time zone. And doing it for last 15 years or so. It had severe adverse effect on my health . My stress levels were high, sugar was almost touching 350 and weight was 103kgs. I was on high medication to maintain my sugar levels I joined Dr. Pooja Sharma's weight loss program. Within 6 months, my sugar level reduced to 145 and weight came down to 88kgs. It was such a wonderful feeling to come back in shape, feeling absolutely fresh, energetic and young, some of them who saw me after few months even failed to recognise me. I have been maintaining my weight and sugar levels for last 6-12 months now but continue to consult her to sustain. I have already recommended it to my colleagues and friends in India & abroad ( many of them have join...
Mrs Renu Maurya, Doha, Qatar
I was searching for someone who could help me reduce weight without starving. My struggle came to an end when i met pooja. She is highly motivating and dedicated. She gives personal attention, follows you on daily basis and helps with all health issues. She is changing the lifestyle not only the diet. With a program the whole family got benefited. She gave healthy options for my sweet cravings. Her detox diets were also very good. Its a total makeover plan. I reduced 13 kgs which seems next to impossible without her. A very big thank you dear pooja.
Sonia Sharma, London
I was introduced to Pooja by my best friend and it saved me from disordered eating. Pooja has taught me a healthier way to look at food. She worked to create a plan to fit my goals. All of my questions were answered in a very friendly helpful manner. Throughout, I have tried many different ways to lose weight and have always failed. With Pooja’s programs I learned how to understand the food I eat and how my body works with food. Today, I’m pleased to say that I have lost around 20 kgs and continue to lose more. Pooja is utmost professional, yet she has a touching compassion and dedication to her clients. I’m thrilled to be able to say that I worked with her!!!</spa
Suraj Sharma, Student, Mumbai
6 months back i was an obese weighing 135 kgs. I used to have a lot of problem everywhere i used to go when i was fat then one day i had become so fat that i my knees started paining and i could not take my own weight so from the next day i started body weight exercises and went to Dr Pooja Sharma because i had to get a diet for myself. I did it it for one week and obviously the results came & i lost 3 kgs in one week and i continued doing it and today i have lost over 45 kgs with a body fat of only 28%. It was a long and hard journey but trust me completely worth it. I endorse Dr Pooja whole-heartedly for anyone wanting to have a wholistic healthy life style.
