Hear from some of Vandana’s happiest clients and top success stories!
“My primary care physician referred me to Vandana Sheth when I expressed concern that I was not able to lose and keep the weight off. I have been trying to lose the unhealthy weight that I have been carrying for over 5 years. I would lose weight and then gain it back. My weight would fluctuate over 5 pounds a week. I was extremely frustrated! I first met with Vandana nine weeks ago. She was very personable and easy to talk to. I told her my story and she listened with genuine care and no judgment.
After assessing my situation, she immediately determined that my body was in starvation mode. I was trying so hard to lose weight that I was starving my body and it held on to everything I ate as if it was the last food that it was going to get. The other significant issue was that I was not eating enough protein in the morning and exercising without the proper fuel every day! We came up with a realistic nutritional plan, which was to lose 40 pounds at a rate of one pound per week. She also recommended using an app called MyFitnessPal to help monitor my diet and keep me on track. The app is easy to use and is fun! Well, after 9 weeks I have lost 12 pounds and I’m wearing pants one size smaller! I now weigh less than I have weighed in over 5 years! I feel great and much healthier. I still have 28 pounds to go, but my progress is consistent. I’m not fluctuating over 5 pounds a week like I used to and the downward slope on my weight data is encouraging. I would recommend Vandana to anybody that has struggled with weight loss and who needs a supportive, helpful mentor.”
“As a journalist and freelance writer, I have had the pleasure of working with Vandana Sheth on articles ranging from healthy food options for children to suggestions for children with food allergies. She provides up-to-date and helpful information with each and every interview, ultimately serving our readers with valuable health information.”
“I’m glad we were able to meet, it was such a great and informative session. I’ve walked away with a clearer and better understanding on how the food groups work. Thank-you for taking the time.”
“I feel extremely lucky to have found Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist, Vandana Sheth. She has been instrumental in guiding me through the process of finding the right sources of protein and proper nutrition to sustain an active lifestyle while following a plant-based diet. During our sessions, she conveyed an approach that was no so strict or restrictive while helping guide me along a path towards proper healthy nutrition. She was excellent at providing encouragement and specific foods as well as recipes to properly fuel and sustain my active lifestyle. Her attention to detail was easy to see as she provides fact-based evidence for her recommendations. Along the way, she always showed a genuine concern for my well being to include my family. I have learned so much from her and have incorporated her advice into my daily plan.”
“We really do not refer out much but I would refer a client to you over any other RD because we know your work… Competent, knowledgeable, up to date, pleasant and compassionate approach.”
“It was about 20 minutes into our first session I felt completely comfortable. I knew as soon as I left that I wanted to continue to see you in helping me with my eating disorder and achieve my goals. You listened to my whole story and without judgment you began to allow me to make my own decisions and allow me to come up with a plan that was healthy yet safe. I loved how you asked me questions of what I was willing to do. If it was something I was uncomfortable with you gave me options and allowed me to make my own choices. There was no shame or negativity if I wasn’t perfect. I was able to gain confidence in myself and trust. You allowed me to take baby steps and the process was gradual and not overwhelming or discouraging, you believed in me and then I began to believe in myself, that I can eat. You have introduced me to new foods and information regarding food, very informative and educational. Thank you for saving my life. That’s why I try to refer all that ask or are in need of help.”
“I can’t thank you enough for your amazing talk “Indians Abroad, Stories of Resilience: Entrepreneurship – The Fun Way” at the Global Nutrition Innovators Summit 2021! From our first introductory phone call to your live presence on stage, I was very impressed by your professionalism and sincerity!
On the last day of the summit, in the closing ceremony I asked the audience to recall one powerful takeaway from each speaker. When it came to you, the audience instantly shouted FUN! Yours was definitely one of the best talks at the summit, and the only one that was *exactly* 20 minutes long!
I look forward to keeping in touch with you and continuing our association! Thank you once again!”
“Trusted friend and colleague who always goes the extra mile.”
“I had the pleasure of working with Vandana Sheth immediately following the birth of my son. After 26 years of battling eating disorders I had worked with numerous dietitians before I met Vandana. Vandana, I am proud to say, was the last dietitian I worked with before I attained complete recovery from disordered eating. Vandana’s approach is personal and supportive. One of the most attractive qualities I found in working with Vandana is her genuine interest in your personal life. By identifying events and situations that might result in poor nutritional choices, Vandana helped me build a sound “do-able” nutritional meal plan. Vandana challenges her clients to try new foods and trust that the body does not change from an extra bite or an over indulgence at times. I always felt safe expressing my fears to Vandana in a soothing environment. Vandana does not focus of numbers and weight but the body as a whole…our mind,our core…what will work for us in our own lives. As I reach my 3 year anniversary of recovery from a 26 year battle with food, I am grateful for being under the care of Vandana at the right time. Every day I look at the gift of my son…in my lap at every appointment with Vandana. Whether you struggle with disordered eating, a medical issue or just want to learn to appreciate all foods in moderation, I highly recommend working with Vandana. Vandana gave me not only my health back but has allowed me to fully enjoy a variety of foods with my son and be OK with it.”
“I had been looking for a weight loss program that was going to be covered by my insurance, however, my insurance did not pay for preventative care like weight management, so I finally decided that me health was worth the investment because healthcare down the line to cover years of less than optimal eating habits would be much more expensive.
So, I called Vandana as she had been recommended to me by the Endocrinologist that I had be referred to. I met with Vandana, she listened to my situation and she made suggestions that were reasonable for me personally. Since starting to follow the diet that Vandana and I worked out for me, I have lost about 20 lbs in about 3 months. I feel more energized, I feel happier about how I look in the mirror, I have gotten my wardrobe back!!! I would recommend Vandana’s services to my family and friends because I think she cares about her clients and wants them to be successful with their health goals. Vandana has been very helpful and I am so appreciative.” =)
“I’ve been lucky enough to work with Vandana on a variety of health, wellness and nutrition assignments FitPregnancy.com, Spafinder.com and NBC Universal. She has become one of my most trusted experts and is a wonderful wealth of information on topics ranging from pregnancy nutrition to building a better breakfast, shopping organically and recipes for healthy, nutritious meals. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is fortunate to have such a professional and experienced spokesperson.”
“I have been going to Vandana for four years by myself. Many years before that, I was taking my late husband who was a diabetic and had kidney failure. She is a very intelligent person, knows what she is talking about and is very, very helpful. I have lost weight under her supervision. She knows you how to eat and what to eat, and demonstrates how to achieve that goal. She is a warm, loving person and pays attention to the needs of her patients. She has been a Godsend to my family.”
“I have had a great experience working with Vandana to meet all my nutritional needs. I was already a lot into fitness and nutrition, but I really wanted that “next level / advanced coaching” that helped me deeply understand how different types of food and micronutrients impact my body and well being. Everything we talked about was highly customized to my body considered my likes/dislikes. Throughout the process, Vandana has shared with me so many of her recipes which I also found super useful. A lot of her discussions are backed by science and I really enjoyed the learning process.”
“Vandana is a true expert in food and nutrition. From farm to table she translates food science into applicable strategies for use at home or on travel. Her warm, genuine, smile and demeanor is like no other. She shows true empathy for her client’s health and well-being. No doubt she is one of the best in the area!”
“I cannot recommend Vandana highly enough as both a clinician and a communications expert. Her expertise in the field of nutrition is vast, yet she is able to synthesize complicated nutrition concepts and make them relatable and doable for her clients and for the public. One of the best around!”
“Vandana is such an incredible dietitian – she’s a real nutrition expert. I love the way she looks at things in such a well-rounded way and she pulls from her years of experience to actually FIX your nutrition problems without tricks, diets and fads.
She’s a certified diabetes educator so I’d specifically recommend her for anyone that has blood sugar issues: diabetes, pre-diabetes, gestational diabetes, or hypoglycemia.
I have her book, My Indian Table: Quick and Tasty Vegetarian Recipes, that I use all the time. It’s really fun that she has the culinary skills so that she can give you specific tips for exactly HOW to make changes while you’re learning about nutrition from her.” 🙂
“I had the pleasure of working with Vandana on a mindful eating session for a corporate client. Vandana was clear and concise in her messaging and provided key points related to mindful eating. She also led a wonderful mindful eating exercise that can be used by employees whether they are working from home or in the office. The session was well received by employees. Vandana, thank you for your time and expertise in the areas of nutrition and intuitive eating.”
“The Best RD in the South Bay!! I have seen Vandana for over 10 years and absolutely recommend her if you are looking for an educated, qualified Registered Dietitian!! Vandana has a very mindful, practical and personable approach to nutritional counseling. Vandana guided me through a very gentle approach helping me reach my dietary goals and navigate a sensitive GI system. She looks at the whole person and not just the food!!”
“I was not sure about continuing looking for a Dietician because after checking for weeks the result were not uplifting. Ready to give up, I finally had a phone conversation with someone that sounded caring, friendly, knowledgeable and willing to share information. After I met her in person, the experience was even better. Vandana is the person to go if you are concern about changing your relation ship with food, take care of your blood sugar and feel healthy spiritual, mentally and physically. She makes you feel so comfortable that you want to go back and see her again. You also have a accountability partner with her; and your goals are closely follow up and review with her and with AMAZING improvement tips…”
“You were wonderful! Thank you! Everyone loved your talk and is so positive about the whole evening so thank you so much for making it possible.”
“Vandana has been helping me with my dietary health goals for approximately six months now. She is very kind and I have found her incredibly helpful. I have some chronic health conditions that made it very difficult and frustrating to find foods and prepare meals that would work for my specific situation. For a long time I had problems with too much weight loss because I had trouble finding foods that wouldn’t exasperate my symptoms. In working with Vandana I have found her to have an incredible depth of knowledge about diet and nutrition. She has helped me to find foods and prepare meals that work very well for me, she has given me different recipes, and she is very knowledgeable about where to purchase things. Something that I really appreciate is that Vandana has helped me to have a better relationship with food and not make eating such a stressful and unenjoyable event. I would certainly recommend her to anyone who needs help with their diet and nutritional goals.”
“Normally you would expect to be introduced to a professional, such as Vandana, in a situation that is dire, from a health standpoint. However, I believe now after my experience with her that anyone, scratch that, everyone can stand to benefit from her depth of knowledge and intuition in the arena of health and wellness. I’ve had some personal challenges with my overall health and lifestyle which needed to be addressed, so that I can take the direction that all of us must go in-forward. She was able to delicately assess and guide me through a process of education and true understanding of how my physical self is deeply connected with my mental state, and vice versa. She understands the full body mechanism and was able to focus on what I needed specifically to alleviate stress and improve my overall health and energy level. She did all this and helped me incorporate it, without disruption, into my work with other health professionals. I believe wholesale, after my experience with her, that if we truly are better to ourselves then we can be better for each other. Isn’t that what the human experience is about, improving our environment and the lives of others?!”
“Working on my health and lifestyle with Vandana was such a great experience! I was going through a tough patch trying to balance my health and Med school. Vandana not only helped me with my health issues, but she also guided me through the stress of Med school and has better equipped me for the future. I cannot thank her enough!!”
“I started the nutrition guidance program with Vandana in May and it has been a wonderful experience so far. Being a vegetarian I needed unique guidance on how to incorporate a healthy meal plan that is also well balanced. Vandana comes up with great suggestions which are practical and easy to incorporate if you are willing to make the change. I can definitely say I have seen the results. I am the healthiest I have been in years and I thank Vandana for her holistic program that has helped me a great deal!”
“Thanks again for being on the show ‘Inside the Issues with Alex Cohen’ for our Plant-Based Foods episode last week. You were a phenomenal guest!”
“Vandana is amazing-had such a great experience meeting with her during my pregnancy as I was experiencing some insulin resistance/borderline gestational diabetes in my last trimester. She was very thorough in getting to know me and my situation, and providing helpful guidance with my nutrition. She makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. My baby is two months now, doing well and healthy. Thankful to Vandana and for her help.”
“Thank you for joining us on the show to talk to Neil Cavuto about the Beyond Meat/ chicken. It was an excellent segment!”
“Vandana is professional, caring, and compassionate in caring for her clients. I’m grateful to have been one of her clients who benefited from her holistic approach and unique set of talents that helped me in the time I needed it the most. It is a pleasure knowing her and having her in my circle of caring professionals.”
“I have seen a lot of growth in myself over the months I have worked w/ Dr. Sheth. She is extremely understanding of all types of situations and life choices and will work with you FOR you… you can really tell that she cares about her clients deeply and about how passionate she is to help others. I am excited to meet with her and enjoy our conversations which I can say I have found hard in other people I have consulted with.”
“Vandana is a rare find. What I mean is that very often you meet knowledgeable people in their respective field but they lack sincerity, and very often you meet kind people but they lack the experience and knowledge. With Vandana you get both! So rare! And she is such a breath of fresh air. Her positivity and passion is contagious. I started working with Vandana because I started having issues with certain foods, she helped me tremendously. I highly recommend Vandana should you need any nutritional guidance!!”
“Thank you for joining me to discuss the popularity of imitation meat products, and whether plant-based foods are here to stay. Your knowledge as a dietitian-nutritionist made our conversation much more interesting and informative, and it was a pleasure having you as a guest on my show.
You were Great!”
