“I honestly never believed that online programs could have a real-life impact, but Dee’s training absolutely proved me wrong.”

I learned so much about food and my own mental patterns about nutrition and I truly feel like my personal relationship with food has been transformed for the better. I no longer feel trapped by all-or-nothing dieting mentalities, I have a much better understanding of healthier food choices for my body type and fitness level, and all around I am eating more and better than I ever have before! – Alethia W. 

“I was actually eating carbs, something I hadn’t allowed myself to enjoy in months, and I still felt great”

I signed up for the program on my birthday. I had made a decision in January to get my health on track, and three months into the year, I felt like I was fluctuating between extremes. I wanted to feel more comfortable in the gym and also more aware of how to eat healthy consistently. I had spent most of February and early March either eating 1200 calories and burning 700 in workouts or binging. It was really hard for me to find balance. Within the first few days of Dee’s guidance and training I felt more centered and focused, I wasn’t as stressed about what I was eating or how much. I was actually eating carbs, something I hadn’t allowed myself to enjoy in months, and I still felt great, not super bloated or heavy. Dee’s program though is unique because of the component that is more than meal plans or workouts, it’s because of the mindset change. She has created a series of prompts to help her users truly question the root cause of their discomfort with their bodies. This awareness and realization of “why” and “how” I had been caught up in these cycles of weight loss and weight gain, why I hadn’t felt comfortable in my skin for the past decade and a half, why I hadn’t achieved my goals yet even after so much work of Atkins, Keto, Orange Theory, etc.

Dee has helped me realign my lifestyle with my goals of losing weight, eating to make my body more healthy, and seeing myself as a more confident and capable woman. This program was more than a diet or a workout, this was an entire rebranding. – SHAMA GUPTA

“I wore a bikini with confidence for the first time in years.”

I no longer feel clueless about nutrition! I’ve loved learning about flexible dieting, calories, being aware of my binge triggers and most of all I LOVE knowing how to calculate my macro intake! Towards the end of the program, I went on holiday and wore a bikini with confidence for the first time in years. I still have a way to go, but I’m happy and armed with some serious skills. Dee has taught me well : ) – Naveen S. 

“I haven’t had a binge since we started”

I am so glad I joined this boot camp with you and the other ladies! Women empowering women! I definitely feel stronger, and notice the changes in my arms, back and midsection like you pointed out. My mindset is so much more focused on my ideal self and empowering myself to get what I want because I deserve it! My relationship with food had completely changed as had my association with stress and eating. I haven’t had a binge since we started and stressful situations haven’t been triggering in me an urge to eat. I am excited to continue on in the training club to build my strength, and maintain muscle, even though I won’t by trying to shed fat right now. I will always have the tools I need to reach the goals I want!! Thank you again!!!!! – Bethany R. 

“Fitting into a jacket, leveling down a size, etc were wins I never counted before”

I was at a plateau, I didn’t understand how nutrition worked and I was aimlessly exercising without being mentally on track with my goals. Basically I was frustrated. I wanted to feel comfortable about my body. I wanted to break through my plateau.

I think more than anything the weekly check ins helped a lot. I used to freak out for small things, which now seem silly but I needed a mentor to tell me to chill out which you gladly did 🙂

I think it’s appreciating the small wins. Fitting into a jacket, leveling down a size, etc were the wins I never counted before. It’s important to appreciate your body for everything it does for you and that’s something I realized over the weeks!

I appreciate that you take the time out to make us figure out the WHY of our fitness journey at the very beginning. It’s all a mind game and I benefitted from it! – Nimisha S.

“Dee’s program took all the guess work out of weight loss.”

Shedding fat was no longer a mysterious phenomena, but rather a challenge that could be tackled with the appropriate approach and tools. I had done a fair amount of the emotional work beforehand, so everything we did related to mindset served to reinforce how crucial this is to how we as women feel in our skin, and her guidance related to macros and movement illuminated just how unique each of our needs are based on our bodies and our goals. After six short weeks, I felt like I had knowledge and tools, and a new belief in my own ability to execute, that would serve me for life.  – Leena P. 

“Before working with Dee, I was in a bit of a rut in terms of progress toward my health and fitness goals.”

I didn’t know where to start or why I was so unmotivated. Dee encouraged me to first change my thoughts before trying to change my actions. Working with her exposed me to a powerful combination of positive thinking and visualization, self-directed weight lifting workouts, flexible weekly routines and simple but useful healthy eating hacks. Dee encouraged me focus on “making things easy” – whether it was using a giant bottle to make sure I drank enough water regularly or buying groceries from Instacart to make it easier to cook dinner at home. This lesson really helped and I look forward to continuing my health journey beyond our time together. Thanks Dee!! – KETKI D

“I learned that food did not have to be an emotional crutch or a stress reliever.”

I learned about Dee through Instagram. I had been recovering from a bad injury and I hadn’t been working out seriously for about a year. As a result, I had put on weight, gotten weak and lost a lot of confidence. I knew I had to back to taking care of myself but I felt overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start.l Dee’s Program changed ALL of that.

Working with Dee, I was able to tackle a multitude of issues. We got to the foundations of my relationship with food and my eating behavior. I learned that food did not have to be an emotional crutch or a stress reliever. We worked on confidence and self-empowerment. Through the Facebook group and voxer messaging app I was able to share my victories and challenges and get on the spot feedback. And lastly her program got me back into the gym 3 times a week. I am no longer concerned with who watches me in the gym, because I am there for myself! Dee taught me to put myself first!

I have made emotional, mental and physical progress. Dee’s program was special because you really have to stop and reflect on everything you have done, everything you are currently doing in order to prepare for where you want to go! – ROSHNI PATEL 

“Above all, this program has taught me how amazing it feels to take care of my body.”

I started this program at the beginning of a year full of uncertainty: my job of 2 years had just ended, my Masters degree classes were complete, and I really had no idea what path I wanted to pursue or what step to take next. This program helped me stick to a schedule and keep myself accountable, even during a time where I had no work/school schedule to stick to and could’ve spent the entire day on my couch watching Netflix with no immediate consequences.

My primary goal when starting Dee’s program was to familiarize myself with the weight room at the gym and learn how to perform exercises that would give me results and increase my strength. Of course, like everybody else, I also hoped to tone myself up in the process, but I really wanted to gain valuable knowledge that I could take away from the program and use to create my own effective workouts on the fly, whether in my home gym, at hotel gyms while traveling, or anywhere else.

I also wanted to continue on my journey to body positivity. I struggled a lot with feeling unworthy or “less-than” if I had a bad day of eating or missed a workout. I wanted to learn to be kinder to my body, take pride in its achievements, and understand that even if my tummy isn’t perfectly flat or I’m not the buffest person in the weight room, I’m still amazing and valuable and can do incredible things.

I have learned so much valuable information and helpful tactics from Dee that I continue to use in my daily life. Dee, I can’t thank you enough for everything. It has been an awesome 12 weeks, and I am so grateful to you! 

That sounds like such a simple statement, but it has really blown me away how empowered I feel when I do something I know is helping me along my fitness/health journey. Whenever I get a workout in, hit my water intake goal for the day, or even just make my morning protein shake/breakfast smoothie, I feel so badass and confident knowing that I’m taking a step towards positive health. I love knowing that I’m taking care of myself, loving my body and showing it how much I appreciate all it can do. I’ve also learned to go easier on myself when I slip up (which is inevitable) – there is no point in beating myself up over a missed workout or over-indulged meal. The important thing is to make a note of how I’m feeling, why I feel that way, and determine what steps I can take in the future to avoid feeling this way again in the future. – Isabel H.

“I’m finally able to change my diet and lose weight in a way that feels sustainable.”

I’ve always had an unhealthy relationship with food. I’ve gone through periods of extreme calorie restriction and binge eating, especially when I was stressed out. I thought the only way I could lose weight was through extreme calorie restriction and cutting out all the foods I love. Dee understood exactly what I was going through and helped me develop a much healthier relationship with food. She taught me how to balance my diet so I could still enjoy the foods I love. I never felt hungry or like I was depriving myself of anything or losing out on my social life because I was dieting. I’ve also stopped turning to food whenever I’m stressed or upset. I’ve lost fifteen pounds so far! I still have a long way to go but with the tools Dee has given me, I’m finally able to change my diet and lose weight in a way that feels sustainable. – Hillary 

“Her program was the most helpful thing I’ve ever done, and I’ve done them all.”

I never thought I would ever be that person who prioritizes working out over anything else. Or says no to the free chocolate on the plane. Or that I’d be able to wear crop tops. Or that I could rock climb. Or ever do a full-body push-up. Or…

The list went on. If I failed at something I tried for the first time, it joined that list. But Diksha helped me tear up these restrictions and face my fears head on. Her program has been the most helpful thing I’ve ever tried to control my health (and I’ve done it all, from personal trainers, expensive and cheap gym memberships, group fitness, weight training class in college, at-home programs, weight-loss challenges, calorie counting).

I began her 12-month weight training and nutrition coaching program with the goal of losing weight and getting stronger, at the same time I started traveling for work, and it has easily been the best investment I’ve made. Dee led me through a well-balanced and informative program that not only helped me shed a few pounds and get stronger muscles, but expanded my curiosity and desire for living a healthy life. Bust most importantly for me, she encouraged me to gain confidence and the intuition for me to give all those things I had once shunned another try.

If you’ve seen any of her posts, videos, or had the pleasure of talking to her, you know Diksha is really passionate and it showed the entire time. She provided a throughly-designed plan, but was flexible with my traveling for work and vacations. Whenever I had doubts, lost motivation, or was just down, she spent extra time with me to get down to the deeper reason why I was feeling or acting a certain way. The way she has helped me as goes well beyond fitness and no review can give her amazing personality, dedication, and attitude the credit she deserves.

If you have any reservations about giving any of her programs a try, just reach out to her! Diksha is so approachable, and I cannot think of a better person to help you take control of your decisions, encourage you to try things you thought you were incapable of, and help you prioritize what truly matters to you. I’m so grateful for her for helping me through the long list of things I thought I’d never be able to do, and for transforming my attitude to keep going for things I previously only dreamed of. – Keerti K.

“For the first time in a long time, I feel comfortable and confident and it’s an amazing feeling” 

Dee’s program helped me finally make progress in my weight loss journey in a healthy, sustainable, long-term way. I have never made lasting progress on my own since I would yo-yo between losing weight, then gaining it all back, but this program helped me attain a realistic and healthy relationship with my food. I enjoy and savor every meal without feeling guilty or gross. I am still seeing changes and incorporating all the tips I learned through this program, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. That’s the beauty of this — it wasn’t just a short-term solution, but a program that showed me skills that I could easily add into my every day life. I wore a crop top last week and didn’t feel any anxiety, just felt happy and healthy. For the first time in a long time, I feel comfortable and confident and it’s an amazing feeling. Thanks Dee! – Jessica P

“I’ve honestly never felt so good about my body like the way I do now.

Being only a broke college student, I was super doubtful when I first signed up for this program. It was a huge financial commitment for me but I thought I’d take the risk because this is something I’ve wanted for SO long and all I needed was guidance.

Your program not only helped me get back on track, but I learned so much about myself and food in general. I’ve honestly never felt so good about my body like the way I do now. There’s still progress to be made but now that I started and know how to continue, I feel excited and motivated. I owe that all to you and your dedication to the program. The thing I liked the most is you always made every video so relatable to you. You admitted your human mistakes and tendencies (for example, coming up with all the excuses in the world to not work out and how we blame genetics for being overweight). You changed my MINDSET about food and my body which is a really difficult task.

I look at food in a completely different way now and I’m so thankful that I invested the time and money in your program!

“I feel more confident in the clothes that I wear.”

At the beginning of this program, I think i had the worst relationship with food, which i now realize when looking back. I was always bingeing and cutting calories if i ate too much. I constantly was scared to eat because i thought i would gain weight. But now I finally am not scared of food and i think learning how i can still eat foods i enjoy as long as i balance it with other foods has been the most important thing. And physically my body feels so much better than before I started the program because before I constantly felt bloated and uncomfortable because of the things I ate. I feel different! I feel more confident in the clothes that I wear. Having this confidence now is something that I value the most. – Sharon 

“My goal was to tone up and get stronger, and I saw visible results in both after a few months.”

I’m not a very active person and was struggling to include regular exercise into my daily life.

I reached a point where this became extremely important to me because I noticed my body getting weaker and I felt like my mind and body weren’t connected anymore (which in turn affected my mental health), because I didn’t understand why my weight would fluctuate or why my back would hurt.

I am a big (vegetarian) foodie and though I don’t have any negative habits around food, I was not thoughtfully consuming what my body needed either.

The program helped me in 2 specific ways. Firstly, the guides around how to think about the food I was consuming was extremely realistic and helpful. The fact that the program didn’t encourage counting calories but instead focused on the breakdown of the nutrition in my food was very encouraging and a new framework to think about what I was eating, contrary to more popular restrictive diets that I knew wouldn’t work for me. Tracking this never made me feel guilty about what I’d eat, but made me feel informed. Secondly, the step by step breakdown to weight training removed the feeling of intimidation that had previously stopped me from approaching weights without a trainer telling me exactly what to do. I felt empowered to buy the gear I needed and incorporate this into my home workout, and I could no longer make any excuses to not work on my physical health anymore.

My goal was to tone up and get stronger, and I saw visible results in both after a few months. Seeing these results made me feel proud and in control of what my body could do, and more informed about how changes in my behavior could affect my overall health.

I felt like I could understand and empathize with how my body looked and felt more. I understood how exercise and what I ate was affecting my weight or strength.

Dee makes nutrition and physical health so approachable and non-judgmental, there’s really nothing to lose! You’ll come out of working with her not just feeling improvements in your body, but also in how you think about your overall health. – Vishruta K.

“Dee helped me feel confident in myself.”

I loved working with Dee because she was so hands-on with me! I always felt supported in times when I was anxious about food or workouts. Dee helped me work through my relationship with food and my body! Most importantly, she helped me feel confident in myself and my ability to manage my emotions around food and self-image.

“be prepared for a complete change in yourself.” 

Before I started working with Dee, I did not have a good relationship with food. I would work out to “work off” what I ate and I would indulge whenever I went out to eat. I was struggling with losing weight and I wanted to make a change because I knew I was not making proper decisions with food and my combination of working out and healthy eating. Working with Dee, I started to view food as nourishing rather than something I will only be able to have once in a while. I started to notice small change in my body even though I didn’t see immediate results on the scale. I also started to notice I felt better so the number on the scale didn’t matter to me as much. Dee’s program is different from other programs because she doesn’t just tell you what to eat/what not to eat. She transforms the way you think and feel about food and the way you feel about yourself. For those working with Dee, be prepared for a complete change in yourself.  – Rachel L. 

“I feel confident and strong. I am fit and beautiful.”

Before working with Dee, I was unmotivated to workout, confused on how to eat smarter and healthier without completely cutting out my favorite foods, and overall unhappy with how things were going nutrition wise. I chose heaps of junk food (chips, candy, cookies, etc) over anything nutritious.

I felt heavy and bloated and was not confident with my body and self image. I was struggling with getting myself to work out and figuring out how to create a healthier meal plan.

I would binge eat like no other. I never listened to my body. I would stuff myself to the point I felt sick after.

Shifting my beliefs and mindset training was the biggest thing Dee helped me to create a healthier, nutritious lifestyle. She taught me to eat exactly what I want without cutting out the junk. I eat nutritious meals that are SO delicious and still end up having room to indulge on sweets!

I feel SUPER confident and strong. I’m overall a happier person with a positive outlook on food and enjoy eating the way I do.

I have a nutritious and healthy diet and it’s not hard. I am fit and beautiful.

Invest in yourself with Dee. She WILL bring a positive change to your life. She teaches you the mindset things that will make all the difference, not only nutritiously, but also in life as a whole.

“I have learned a lot about food and nutrition on this program.”

I have always exercised and ate relatively well, however, I’ve still struggled with not being able to shed fat and feeling tired constantly. Learning about macros and how to balance my nutrition has given me more energy for my workouts and throughout my day. Also, learning about food abundance and how to combat that thinking has helped me avoid indulging in junk food – which is hard to do with being a working mother of two toddlers. The livestreams about the emotional side of weight loss and getting fit has also been helpful – “food” for thought!  I will continue sticking with macros long after this program. It makes sense for me and my lifestyle. – Anoushka C.

“I was always overweight.  I was able to lose 6-8 lbs while working with Dee in 2 months while still getting to enjoy most foods/ continue to be social. “

I was always overweight, and have always struggled with my weight and overeating. I’ve only ever tried crash dieting but knew it was not sustainable. i wanted something more realistic to fit my social lifestyle. Last year, I started making working out a priority but never really knew how to address my nutrition and change it to start seeing results. I knew it was time to make a change because I was tired of being overweight and wanted to start seeing results from me investing time in working out and knew nutrition was always the way to start seeing results. I was able to lose 6-8 lbs while working with Dee in 2 months while still getting to enjoy most foods/ continue to be social. 
 
After working with Dee, I started shedding lbs, not hating “being healthy”, and knowing what to eat/ how to eat it (this is the most important part- which I never knew before) . I started with counting calories/ tracking my macros. 
 
Mentally, I was able to start noticing patterns around my eating habits/ why I was making certain decisions around binge eating/ the mentality of treating myself after a stressful day at work. After noticing this, I stopped associating so much emotion around food, and would rather approach it as a meal I needed to have to help me hit my macros in that day. Trust me, there were days I definitely slipped but Dee was there to let me know how it’s not the end of the world/ I can get back on track very easily and furthermore, not to beat myself up about it if I did slip—which is definitely something I’ve done in the past. 
 
It wraps around your lifestyle/ is tailored towards you. Dee definitely gets to know you as a client and understands your habits and tendencies. It’s also fairly independent so you’re accountable for your own progress while Dee lends a helping hand to make sure you stay on track, but not in an overbearing way at all! She is doing this for you, so make it count! 
 
Make sure to be honest with yourself/ Dee so you can see the most out of this program. If you are consistent/ follow the program, you will see results!!  – Stephanie S. 

“I gained so much control”

For years I had told myself I was going to “get in shape”. I personally hated saying I wanted to lose weight because while I knew fat loss was my goal was, I didn’t want to be vocal about that due to my insecurities. That lack of honesty with myself was making it easy to skip workouts or healthy meals. I was not committed because I was never honest about what I wanted. 

My relationship with food was very mindless. Some days I’d eat one meal because I’d let everything else in life take up time. Some days the hunger would catch up to me and I’d overeat things that didn’t really end up satisfying me. And some days, I’d eat well and be cognizant of my nutrition, but I never had a plan to keep that sustainable.

After working with Dee, I just felt like I could move forward. I had the resources explained clearly. There weren’t any fad diets or work out plans. She didn’t sponsor waist trainers or fat loss teas. It was just all real things I could follow and sustainably keep up with. The information was clear, and the rest was up to me.

Since working together, my relationship with food is so much better. She really broke it down as starting off with counting your macros to understand what serving sizes and portions look like for your goals, and then taking off with what you learned. I was able to go on a vacation this past week, enjoy the foods my foodie heart desired, then know when I probably needed to eat something a bit cleaner. I gained so much control! – Shivani K
