"Not so long ago, there was a phase when my digestion had gone very bad." Read more..
"Not so long ago, there was a phase when my digestion had gone very bad. Every other day I would be down with either bloating or stomach upset resulting in a foggy mind , not able to concentrate, wanted to just sit in one place and not move . This resulted in affecting my daily life and at times I used to seriously think that I had some serious issue which was going undetected. I knew there were some foods which didnâ€™t suit me and to add to that I was a bit reckless with taking protein supplements . I had practically given up my workouts because the body just wouldnâ€™t move. Till my sister in law put me in touch with Luke . Thatâ€™s when my life took a U turn. After going through my life style and eating habits he put me on a diet plan which was so simple , clean and easy to follow .I followed this in letter and spirit for around 6 months and it proved to be the soothing balm for my gut . Since then Iâ€™ve rarely had these kind of symptoms & of course I do not take a single supplement including protein . I have also stopped wheat ( make me feel lazy) , red chilly flakes & coffee. As habit too I rarely eat outside , preserved food , sweets etc. Mostly I eat clean food . On Lukeâ€™s suggestion, sattu powder has kind of become my staple diet as it keep me light & full & at the same time gives me my protein shots . Iâ€™m majorly into callisthenics , body weight exercises, suspension workouts (TRX) . These exercises are ably supported by my HAVYK sliders, Lebert equalizers , medicine ball, BOSU ball, sledge hammer , JCB tyre , Tabata etc. . For me duration of the workout is not important , intensity is and I see to it that my workouts by & large get over within 45 minutes . I take pride in saying that Iâ€™ve rebuilt my body all natural.

"I joined the program with a lot of questions and apprehensions since i had never enrolled for such a program before. But many of people i know had joined various weight loss programs wherein the focus was on weight only. Their diet plans were extreme and gave hunger pangs. Some had to eat only one type of food for days whereas others ate only protein etc etc. So i wasn't sure what i was getting into. Still the hope was there coz i have been following Luke and knew that he believed in holistic eating and living and not diet.
I had a great experience though i lost just 2.5 kg weight and a few inches and fat but got a lot of insight into correct eating. Being a pharma grad myself and having worked past ten years in nutrition area my own knowledge about healthy eating was decent. Hemali my coach, further added her wisdom to it. I call her coach and not dietician as she never behaved like one. Was always accomodating trying to make food plans as per my preferences and not making me do something forcefully. I could never follow the cleanse programs though managed IF at times. Sharing her knowledge and clarifying all my doubts and queries even beyond her working hours as well. Sometimes even on Sunday. I still have a lot to do in terms of changing as after so much of trials we realised that what worked for me was eating more raw and cutting my carbs in evening and night. When she changed my plan to this i could knock off the kgs and inches. Till then my weight was refusing to budge though i got slight inch loss. But well the program ended. I want to renew it but in June, as i would need nearly a months gap in May and that would spoil all the good done before. Hence, will renew it in June.
Would request to assign Hemali again."

"I dont know if i will be able to summarize all of my feedback in the given space. It was an AMAZING experience to work with Shimpli on improving my gut health. The reason i liked it and sticked with it because i could see the benefits in first week of the program. That was enough for me to keep me motivated for rest of 3 months. Lemon water, ajawin, fennel seeds, morning drink, probotics balance, curcumin and eating balanced meal is something thats going to stick with me for life. Also, eating food slowly and deep breathing are extremely powerful tools. When I started this program i was under immense stress. I used to stress out about food all the time because i had lost confidence in myself and thought of negative stuff. But the tools that Shimpli provided has improved my confidence and i dont stress / even think about it when i eat. Even if have some issues with digestion these days, i know the cause and take immediate measures to control it. I couldnt have done this before. Its like playing a sport... I know now how to play because of the tools that were provided by you guys. I have already recommeded you guys to several of my friends and relatives. i think what you guys do is benefiting masses. I wish you guys all the luck and support for coming days. And SHIMPLI you rock .... You kept me motivated with your energy and passion through the entire program ... I look forward to working with you guys."

"I have discovered "what's a nutrious diet is" in actual.There were many health myths I was carrying in my mind, but getting in touch with Holistic healing I got to know the facts. Learned more deeply about what an Indian diet is all about and it's benefits. I feel happy that being a vegetarian now I don't feel I need more sources of protein or my protein sources are limited. I feel blessed that I follow Indian diet"

"When my doctor denied further treatment at Tata hospital, I was feeling very upset and didn't t know how to deal with the situation. But now I am really grateful because he actually saved me by refusing the treatment which otherwise would have deteriorated my health day by day.
It was then that I got introduced to Luke and joined the programme without second thought. I consider it a great blessing now. After joining the program, I realized the fact that the food should be treated like our medicine because our body has the power to treat all its illness if we feed it in the right manner. I started becoming extremely cautious of what I eat and adopted lifestyle changes which made a huge difference to my life.
I take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for all your guidance and support through out the programme."

"I was diagnosed with plasmacytoma and an initial stage of multiple myeloma in the month of Jan 2016. I was getting treated at Tata memorial who decided that I only needed Â radiation for my tumour. My husband and I did a little research on alternative treatment and came across a few videos from Luke where he was explaining how diet can reverse cancer. We got in touch and discussed my complete case. He himself spoke to me and assured me that I will be perfectly alright. For 6 months I followed the prescribed diet and supplements. I have gone through 1 follow up test and my reports are really good. I do regular yoga, attend dance class and am leading a happy life. I feel very peaceful and light. Shimpli is my guardian angel. She is my personal health associate assigned to take care of my diet, supplements and talk to me endlessly if I am feeling stressed. God bless them. They are serving for the best health of human beings."

"It's been precisely 2 months since I enrolled with Luke and Deepika for the Level 4 program and am really glad that I made this decision. Have been suffering from this condition - Ulcerative Colitis - for approximately 17 yrs now and have tried virtually all forms of medicines or treatments - allopathy, ayurveda & homoeopathy. In fact I approached my Sister in-law, a nutritionist, with a view to better my diet since had been on a very restricted menu evr since my last flare up in May 2016. The entire family including me had concerns of me being malnourished and developing other ailments. But we were amazed when she suggested going for this program and getting healed up. And it's been quite a journey, getting to know how my body has been functioning or malfunctioning, how it has been developing allergies to various food categories, what I need to avoid and what alternatives are available to me. The whole concept of naturally getting healed through right food and lifestyle choices was something I could never have believed in had it not been for the efforts of Luke and Deepika. The sincerity of approach and their willingness to hear out the minutest of issues and duly address each detail puts me personally at such ease that I have not experienced ever while being treated for this disease. I am hopeful that this issue would be totally resolved as against what medical science claims to be beyond final addressal. Am really glad to have opted for this form of cure as opposed to being totally dependent on drugs or surgeries. This definitely is a more holistic approach. Am thankful to you both really for helping me regain normal routine. Am looking fwd to putting an end to this tyranny ... have to admit that it does get very taxing."

"Health I really believe is mental physical emotional and spiritual wellbeing which brings harmony inside and radiates to all around me. Your teaching and food have been in this direction. You helped me to have the right food so say as in when my BP fluctuated, the changes made in my diet including more veg juice etc and I am doing good. When I started I had low energy and clarity. I would describe that I had a blocked energy field but with all the turmeric and coconut oil and all else included, clarity has come inside me. I am able to identify it as fear. Does not matter what the fear is but the ability to take action with tools as yoga pranayam basically the homeostasis is returning. Nature food & the know how you'll have, has shifted the environment inside me. I was seeking this. Luke I had to reach out and tell u, with this program and Prachiâ€™s help in all possible ways, I see a shift inside me to emerge. I noticed my breathing is flowing easily inside me, actually it is difficult to describe, simply I have noticed that I am more in balance. Along with nutrition, reflection prayers, meditation, gratitude practice, yoga has helped too. Thank you. I am learning and shall miss this support of knowledge and friendship with your team. I am indeed honoured and grateful to you, Prachi and Luke's Team for support in my wellness journey. No amount of money can replace the support provided as it is for a human like me more about the quality of my life. I actually had six months with you all. My goal is to become self reliant now and see how I do. If need be I will for sure get back to you all. I wish it was a life time journey with you all, luckily for us Luke provides that at Facebook. Wishing you all a happy healthy peaceful life. To sum it all had to share my joy with a thank you note in all its fullness."

My daily life was like a roller coaster ride with dizziness and instability every single day. I had lost my confidence totally. Had to leave my job full time. I could not go anywhere independently. When I approached Luke's team they started with the plan immediately. It's been 3 months now and I'm a free bird, free from dizziness. My family is very happy to see me smiling and full of energy again. The diet plan was not difficult to follow. Lot of flexibility and options was there. My dietician Shimpli, was always there to guide and encourage me whenever I needed her. I'm going to miss you Shimpli. I'm just taking a break now with my family for two months and will continue with it again. It's like having a concerned family now in Mumbai. I'm lucky. A very big thanks to LUKE. Your team is awesome."

"Dear Luke, I cant describe in words how much I was suffering with my Stomach and sleep issues. I don`t want to say just a Thank you and run away without letting you and every body in your team know the changes you have brought in my life and your patients life. I have been diagnosed with Hiatus Hernia, GERDS, Severe acidity, Heartburn etc. Doctors(coz went to multiple doctors in India/USA) performed scan, endoscopy and multiple procedures to find out why I have these pains around my chest, lungs, stomach, back etc. Once It was found, I was given one dosage of Anti-biotics in India along with some strong Antacids medication. The pain was still coming and going, I had consulted with doctor in USA and ended up having one more strong dosage of Anti-biotics with 60mg of Antacid per day($290 per month since insurance doesn't cover this variety these days). I also got confused 4 times in the past 1.5 years and gone to emergency room and paid $500 each visit. It was due to heartburn again. Finally, I thank god, I came to you and the lifestyle changes you have imposed on me are a game changer. From the day we have spoken around 7 months back, I had stopped all my medications from December till now. I have taken one or two tablets occasionally in the past 5 months. Due to Heartburn popping up in night times, my sleep got completely disturbed and Dr. prescribed me sleeping pills. I was never wanting to take it, but had to take few days after which you gave a great alternate to get out of it. The reason am writing this is, am sure many people like me who are fit, working out regularly but have a bad lifestyle due to outside food/over eating and un-time eating habits etc. I want them to understand, what happened to me can happen to them, there are changes that they have to bring in to have a healthy life. I wish people instead of going to an Allopathy Dr, first find out whats alternative and reach a person like you who is not just treating it but eradicating it and giving a lifestyle change that can save us from these strong medications. I initially came to you for Heartburn and sleep issues, now i follow your foot steps for even fever, cold, cough etc. The way you plan your cleanses are the best part. I love the cleanse every time I do it, the feeling after the cleanse is best. I am able to spread the knowledge to people around me and my family. I already see a lot of people who want to live a healthy life following you, but I really want people around the world who just carry a pill and take it when ever needed like a Candy to reach you soon! Your team is expanding and need to expand big time to serve more people around the world. When it talk to you it's like taking to someone who truly cares for me and my health.My special thanks to Deepika, a wonderful person who has been there for me."

The most remarkable change is that from July 2016 onwards I had no complaints of throat infection,cough, cold and migraine which was a continuous problem with me for the past 10 yrs. The best part is I have not taken any antibiotics from the day I am in Luke's guidance.
Moreover the diet plans shared by my personal coach Deepika has been more of a healing food which has nourished by body in lot of ways. I would personally like to thank Deepika who is not a coach to me but an angel who sorts my all health issues with nature embedded tips which has actually made me believe that everything we put in our mouth has a healing power.
Thanks to the wonderful team for enlightening us with power of food."

Luke, thank you for giving me the confidence that I can travel to USA. I have booked my ticket and leaving on Sunday to see my husband s graduation at Boston.
Wanted to share one more thing. I have been wanting to donate my hair to make wigs for cancer patients, but I kept postponing my decision as my long hair covered my double chin and plump cheeks.
But last week I got the confidence and courage to go ahead with this donation as this program made me feel good about myself.
Thank you all. Extremely grateful to all of you."

"Very simple but intense, straight forward and trust worthy is 'Pure nutrition' headed by Luke and his team. I entered into their holistic nutrition program 4 months back, of course with health issues and came out not only healing but also with a complete clarity in mind and my heart filled with serenity. His integrative and Lifestyle medicine is a blend of both profound physiological and natural way of healing. Luke often uses 'moderation' which is the 'one whole' beautiful word to be in middle in every spheres of our life where guilt completely vanishes. My special gratitude to Deepika (head nutritionist) who had been a great mental support.
I extend my gratitude to Luke and his team who are so caring with authentic friendliness. My best wishes to Luke and his team members to reach to people out there spreading joy and good health."

"I got in touch with Luke at a time when my health was so poor that I wrote one page full of health issues in my form and was wondering if anything in my body is even barely healthy or can ever be. I also would have my days of feeling very depressed and would not be able to even sleep at night. And I am so happy to say that since the day I started with the diet plan, that Luke and Deepika set for me. Acidity, headaches, body pains and depression have completely vanished. My body feels healthier and so does my mind. The diet plans are simple and based on lifestyle changes rather than crash diets.
A big thank you to Luke and Deepika for keeping a constant check on me and taking regular updates. I can't thank you both enough for everything that you did in the last whole month and for the benefits that I am going to reap in the future because of this. I wanted to write so much more. You are an amazingly sweet person Deepika. Thank you so much."

"This is to put on record how meeting a great human being Luke Coutinho who further appointed Deepika as my nutritionist has given a sense of direction to my haphazard lifestyle. Grappling with so many mental and Physical health issues, my search finally ended when I came across Lukeâ€™s videos. Deepika, my heartfelt thanks not only for the professional guidance you gave me but more to that you are a fantastic person. Your positivity, professionalism, commitment and dedication to your job is commendable. Thanks for making and altering diet plans as per my likings for food. My life is transformed and I am motivated to scale new heights in life. I really wonder why do we go to doctors straight away and not a nutritionist.
I have no doubts that my association with Luke's team and especially Deepika is going to be lifelong!!
Looking forward to future health guidance when I finish my three monthsâ€™ course of health supplements.
Thanks, and cheers!"

These lifestyle changes made the difference and today I messaged you because I am happy that I did this through my instinct and it wasn't far from your own advice.
I walk within 3BHK 2000 sft flat or at my catering/restaurant kitchen of 800 sft. Thats it! I lost inches even on my lower body. I am happy and proud that I lost weight and inches by listening to your videos. I started following you late in November and further improved my hydration, lemon water , no carbs post 6.30 in the evening . But I ate all my carbs being a vegetarian like phulka subzi daal chawal.

"With Luke, we have made our journey from struggling to lose weight to making fitness a way of life. My wife came in touch with you through Facebook 6 months ago, and since then we have been following each and every post, each and every tip, each and every video and practically implementing it on ourselves. Your tips are so simple, easy to follow and self-explanatory which made it possible to take up this journey of health and fitness. I alone wouldn't have been able to follow it, me and my wife are on this journey together. We started with the following:
1. We went through all the cleansing processes like liver, lungs and kidney, saw beautiful results.
2. Lifestyle changes like drinking occasionally, sleeping by 10am, waking up by 5am, got regular with the workouts, specially enjoying Tabata, eating outside just once in 15 days and got selective in choosing food outside.
3. The vegetable carrot and potato juice with one spoon of oil is just working wonders on our body. We are noticing our energy levels have increased in a big way, our skin and hair are in better condition, have gained huge muscle strength. Having no aches and pains in the body.
We are so happy with the results, I have reduced 4 inches and 7 KGS weight in last 2 months. And my wife has reduced 4 KGS and 2 inches. And looking more attractive and graceful than ever before. Let me tell you Luke you are truly a blessing in disguise for us. True gift to the mankind. Thanks a ton for everything. Keep going with the great work. Hats off to you."

I was feeling low in confidence then my husband gifted me your book "The Great Indian Diet". I was very impressed with your book as there were simple steps which could be easily followed. I started following it and it started showing results and my interest and curiosity increased about healthy lifestyle. Then I read another book of yours and started following you on Facebook. I started doing exercise regularly and water fasting. I started consuming less sugar. I started taking detoxification potions and avoiding junk food.
I follow all your post and videos and participate in your challenges. All this has led to reduction in my weight from 69 to 54 and made my life healthier. Thank you so much Luke. Keep writing and inspiring us all."

"I have been a fitness enthusiast with a consistent exercise schedule since last 10 years or more but was not able to lose weight as I always chose to ignore the most important element "DIET".
Please note these are no Dos and Donts, these are my beliefs which has helped me to stay focused and motivated:
Accept the way you are, and start your journey with lots of motivation and moderation (extreme steps never helped any one)
Give yourself time, do not be in a rush, if you think it will take you 8 months to achieve- take 10 months in hand.
Have a cheat meal (in moderation and preferably lunch) in a week but avoid having a cheat day.
Remember the last few kgs are the hardest so first thing you need to do is build up on your motivation and willpower which will help you deal with the harder phase of losing the last kgs.
Do not always think about calorie counts, be more concerned and aware about the nutrition you are getting from these calories. In a nutshell, love yourself, enjoy each day and trust me embarking on this journey will teach you many life lessons which extend to more than weight loss or fitness"

"I came across Luke just by chance on Facebook. His videos were my first step to health. They were an absolute eye opener. I suffered from low immunity for many years after the birth of my triplets which led to weight gain, always feeling tired, acidity, migraine and wheezing. Convinced by the videos I knew I had to get in touch with Luke to sort myself out. Two months since I feel more energized, acidity is the thing of the past and I havenâ€™t popped a pill in the past two months. This in itself is huge for me as I used to constantly take painkillers for aches and pains for almost 10 yrs.
Once the lifestyle changes were made, lots of things happened without me aiming for it. Like cravings go down, sleep improvement, losing inches and more than anything loving the new me.
Eternally grateful to Luke and his nutritionist Shimpli Patil who has been with me and encouraging me through this program. Thank You Luke"
