Poonam Sharma always wanted to live medicine free. When she saw everyone around her getting sick and obese, she decided to become a health professional.
Being a vegetarian by birth, in her initial years as a dietitian she advised vegetarian diets to her clients. However on seeing a client with high cholesterol levels, she realised that some thing was wrong with the vegetarian diet. Her quest for a healthier option for weight loss led her to Dr John McDougall.
She then learnt that Dr Nandita Shah of SHARAN was doing similar work as Dr McDougall in India. Attending her Reversing Diabetes and Hypertension workshop, made her even more confident in the Whole Food Plant Based Diet. Not only did she change her diet but also motivated her clients to follow the same. She joined the SHARAN Whole Food Plant Based Consultations Training Program for doctors and nutritionists in December 2017 with the goal of working with SHARAN.
She enjoys vibrant health at the age of 46 years and attributes it to her Whole Food Plant Based Diet.
