Hello everyone, I am Smriti Indarapu, a Post Graduate Diploma holder in Nutrition and Dietetics, practicing nutrition for the last 8 years. Prior to that I was a Bachelor in Electronic & Telecommunication Engineering. The journey started when we were having our family and a doctor told me to focus on what I eat. This search led me to know that how healthy our body is a direct action of what we eat. If you take only a similar kind of diet that leads you to gain weight you cannot expect to reduce weight with the same diet. If you only look at reducing calories in your diet, you may probably also reduce vital nutrition from your plate too. The curiosity towards nutrition led me to complete the course of Post Graduate diploma in Nutrition and dietetics from a reputed institute in Mumbai, India and my mathematical background helped me to develop my first calorie calculator.
