    She writes ……………….

    The below mentioned are the summary of things I would like to update you all with my career.

    I truly owe all the achievements to my college and the faculties in B.M.N. Matunga.

    “Being a Nutritionist-thought was not my cup of tea, but the college gave me the positivity and the energy and right career counseling to choose my right field, right subjects.”

    Special subjects like Basic Nutrition, Physiology, and Food Product Development during the BSc level were always upgrading our knowledge to better level each year.

    The extracurricular activities not only added interest, creativity in the studies, but also made us overcome phobias of presentations, explore to new topics all the time.

    The Personality Development Course conducted for two years has definitely brought a complete makeover in us, especially for me because of that certificate got a chance to start Ethical Training classes for kids.

    The special part of the course was to give us a chance of 2 months internship and help us understand the subjects we learnt practically. It was truly a privilege being a part of the BSc batch 2004.

    “There are very few people/ teachers / friends who add a step to ladder of success and for me college/ Nutrition Faculty is the one.”

    I truly would like to thank The Nutrition Department of BMN Matunga, who allowed me to enroll and complete my PG SSN with my part time working. The subjects were truly advanced and well taught upgrading to a level of being an expert.

    Today, Kajal Thosani is a name in health industry and that’s because of hard work we underwent during the course. The teachers have polished us to the best to make us successful.

     

    Mahafreen Thampal : Alumni 2008-2009 batch


    This course of sports science fitness and nutrition has helped me to understand and develop my interest in the field of exercise science  and physiology  which is very necessary  for individuals  who are interested  in the field of  fitness and nutrition. Along with nutrition  science, studying  exercise  physiology is equally  important  as it is like a combo package which is essential to understand  the field inter relation of both and their functioning . The practical  classes of this course is  very important  for all students to attend  to get a practical  experience of what you learn as it is very important  that one must know how to apply the theoretical  knowledge in real life. This course helps develop  self confidence  and also how to interact with your clients individually and also as a group.

    Personally I feel everyone should make  the best of this course and everyone should start eating right  and training  hard themselves to feel it from within how all the systems  of our body work.

    I would be very happy to help if  anyone  requires any guidance.

    I have also completed my certification from International  sports science  association (USA) as a certified  fitness trainer and a sports nutritionist specialising in performance  nutrition. 

    Today  whatever  I am is because of this college and Anu mam without  your support  it wouldn't  have been possible. 

    Thank you!

    I did my graduation in Foods & Nutrition from SNDT, Pune in 1989. After that I could not continue my education due to family responsibilities but my hunger for higher education in the field of nutrition always remained with me for over 23 years. After completing my family responsibilities, my husband took an initiative for my further education in the field of my interest. My aim was not just to do studies but to see that how I can use my knowledge for benefit of society and the same time provide me recognition in terms of earning and respect.

    After lot of survey and discussion with friends, I decided to join SSFN course. It is a 1 year Post Graduation Diploma Course. I went to BMN College, Matunga where I met Mrs. Anuradha Madam. She is such an inspiring personality. She explained me the course in detail, professional and career opportunities available post completion of course. This was matching with my aspirations. I was not interested in just learning but keen to apply the acquired knowledge for betterment of society and also earn money and recognition for myself. She lit a lamp of hope in so many women’s life like me.

    Initially I was not convinced with the career opportunities available post completion of just 1 year that too a diploma course. After going through syllabus and success stories of ex-students, I decided to give it a try and joined the college.

    This course is knowledge oriented for a person like me who has started her education once again after a gap of 23 years (more than 2 decades), lot many changes, innovations and researches happened over this period. This course has not only refreshed my old knowledge but also educated me on recent changes in nutrition and related fields. Various subjects are covered under this course. The Knowledge I gained after studying this course gave me a lot of confidence,which instilled the fact that  “Yes, I can do something great in my life now.”

    Human Nutrition, Physiology, Ergonomics, Sports Nutrition, Sports Sciences, Sport Psychology, Community Nutrition, etc. All subjects covered under this course are very informative and practical oriented.

    Due to support, guidance and help of all Professors, I stood first in the college. It was indeed a proud moment for me, as I started my education once again after a gap of 23 years. Post completion of course, my aim was to start my own weight management centre. Accordingly, I did 3 months internship practical training with weight management centre.

    Immediately after completion of internship, I started my own clinic “Fitness Mantra”at Ghatkopar East. After a successful 1 year, I opened a branch at Pune. I wish to put on record that this course gave me practical knowledge which helped me to cure many obese people. I have cases of weight loss of 50+kgs weight loss in 10 months and many more above 10+ kgs. I do not work on weight loss but work on overall health improvement and hence many clients are referring to their friends and relatives. This recognition of my services and decent earnings gives me satisfaction of what I learned.

    My Big Thanks to BMN College and PG-SSFN
