Dr. Tripathi and his team is the best example of learning with experience. Each patient also is a participant for a bigger cause.

For the customized diet that the FFD patients follow it is essential that new recipes are innovated. Each participant shares the picture of his plate before every meal as directed by the doctor which helps in motivating everyone to follow the prescribed food categories and portion and also so that the assigned mentor can check if any changes are required to the individual’s diet. New recipes and ideas also get shared on this group and people in group get cured rather than individually. And as they say
