My daughter, who is two years old, has hyperinsulinemia, which in turn lowers her blood sugar level. So her diet has to be very selective. I was out of options and I reached out to several people on every possible platform. Even her pediatrician could not suggest me anyone. Then some angel on social media gave me Ms Desai's number. The very first time I called her, in December 2020, it was not her work hour, but she still heard me out thoroughly and asked every tiny detail that I would have missed. The same day she gave me the appointment, seeing the urgency. Ms Desai spent good one and a half hours with me for consultation. As they say, the experience speaks, she knew certain things, food pattern and dietary habits of my daughter that as a mother, I failed to notice. Over the consultation, she gave me multiple options for diet, food timings etc. Ms Desai also pointed the mistakes I was making.The very next day, she sent me the diet plan, which was so easy to follow. There was no extra efforts in terms of meal preparation that I had to do. The best part was that the food items in the diet plan are toddler friendly, nutritious and also there was variety.Funnily, in between, my daughter's pediatrician suggested me a dietitian from Hinduja hospital. I contacted the dietitian who asked me about my daughter's current diet plan. I gave her an idea of the diet plan that Ms Desai had planned for my daughter. The dietitian from Hinduja hospital, sent me a meal plan, ten days after the consultation (when she was reminded), which was 95% copy of Ms Desai's plan. Needless to say, I didn't take that route.I got in touch with Ms Desai again in February 2021, as my daughter will be starting school soon. The best part about Ms Desai is that she's never in hurry to finish the appointments. She will give proper time to her patients. She takes personal interest in each case. Nothing beats her experience. The options, the calorie calculation, the dietary need of a specific age, they all are on her fingertips. On another note, she's really lucky for my daughter as whenever I get in touch with her, my daughter's sugar levels come 100 which otherwise is a dream. I would like to extend the biggest thanks to Ms Desai and recommend her to everyone seeking dietary consultation. Trust me, she is the solution.
My consultation with Ms. Geeta Desai was incredibly helpful and eye-opening. She was very mindful of my lifestyle and preferences while curating the perfect meal plan for me to begin my journey to greater physical and mental health. I am extremely thankful!
I am 53 years old and despite being into sports and other physical activities I have always been overweight. The main reason I feel is that I am a foodie and have this uncontrollable urge to eat whenever I see something edible.
So I visited Dr Desai to help me go on a diet. This was the first time in my life I was trying this out and thus had some apprehensions and misgivings about it. My initial interaction with her turned out to be very different from what I had expected. I thought she would be a very stern person and would scold me when I told her about my lifestyle and eating habits. On the contrary she listened to me very intently and pointed out to me the positives in my lifestyle. Regarding my eating habits she suggested some changes rather than anything radically different.
I felt she was really an emphatic listener and has a very encouraging way of motivating people. During the course of my treatment I used to go astray (as one would expect. You don’t kick a 53 year old habit in couple of months). I used to tell her like a delinquent school boy that I had been naughty with my diet. She actually told me that it is ok to indulge once in a way and not feel very bad or guilty about. But it is important to compensate that over the next few days or meals.
This was a very sane piece of advice as I don’t see myself living with the rest of my life like a stoic monk. It has helped me come to terms with my weakness for food and how to control and compensate my diet. Most importantly, she helped me change my lifestyle in a manner I did not feel I was sacrificing too much. So I sincerely believe this method is sustainable.
Of course time will tell. However, for the 3 months I was being consulted by her my weight reduced by 8kgs. This has not happened to me for many many years. It is still on a decreasing trend and if I can get rid of another 5 to 6 kgs I should be very pleased with myself.
I would strong recommend Dr Desai as she works on the mind of her patients rather than on their body. There were a lot of good conversations we had which helps one clear ones own doubts.
Thank you very much Dr Desai for your help.
She is an excellent practitioner and nutritionist. I had visited her for consultation of my 3years old daughter who was really fussy in eating. She was able to help me very quickly with the issues that I presented to her in our first visit. Though she judiciously gave 1.5 hours just to sort out the diet of my daughter where in I gave her very less options which is preferred by the little.******* ** ***** ********** ******* *** ***** ***** *** *** **** ********* ****.
Apart from just giving the nutrition plan what I really appreciate about her is the way she gives some home tips/ recepies/finger food options/and some really helpful guidance on how to introduce a child to different taste and food.
It's was 21st of March 2017 that I had met her for consultation and then she continuously took a follow up with me and asked regarding my daughter's diet and trust me it's this date that my daughter eats almost everything.
Right from green veggies to various pluses, egg..etc. in short a proper diet which is required by a child.
I feel like I am on the right track for the first time in selecting her for nutrition consultation for my daughter. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!
I visited for Weight Management Counseling
Well 100 words will not be enough to describe my experience with Dr Geeta Desai. In today's fast moving world it is extremely rare that one can interact with a Doctor like her who is highly motivational and energetic. Have visited her for advise on weight loss, owing to the fact that I have just survived Cervix Cancer stage III had many premonitions. Her weight loss program has not only helped me to build my lost endurance and strength in fact it has made me highly disciplined.. and yes in last 1 and half month have lost 2 inches and around 3 kgs. Best part of being with her is that the weight loss happens in a natural way by doing the right things. Am sure many of us look for quick weight loss and wonder how by just walking or eating right can help in sudden reduction… however she is the one who will help you to achieve the right balance which will have life long positive effects. But yes one has to follow on what she says.. *** **** *** **** *** ******* ********
I was in search of a good dietician from a long time when one day fortunately I stumbled on Desai ma'am's Diet Counselling blog.
That was it. I met her the very next day after taking an appointment and enrolled for a 6 month weight loss package. Though I was skeptical for the first time to meet her, all this vanished as soon as I got the 'Diet Chart' from her, which mentioned the quantity of food. And no kidding, it was more than what I used to eat. So, it was a welcome change for me as I am a big foodie but mostly prefer homemade food. Slowly and steadily I started seeing change in my body, more toned and the cellulite disappearing. To be frank, I was 7-8 kgs more my ideal weight, so, there was no fast weight loss(more obese people tend to loose weight faster than people like me who are already just few kgs here n there) but nevertheless diet and exercise routine has helped me stay fit and active and develop good eating habits.
All in all, It was a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend Geeta Desai Ma'am for people who want to loose weight sensibly and forever.

I visited consultancy for weight loss diet.
I would recommend her for following things :
I am so satisfied and happy that Geeta Mam has given me the diet based on my routine and food that I eat daily. ( I was bit worried before visit how can I ask few things but later her friendliness made me so comfortable that I forgot she was my consultant and I literally felt like I was talking with my friend) I asked her so many questions which she answered tirelessly & even explained me in details. I was confused about different diet forms where she told me pros and cons of that specific diet. Consulting from her I got knowledge of some misconceptions I had since childhood about diet. The best thing was she listed all the health problems I am facing and planned my diet accordingly.

Friendliness - 5/5

Diet Plan - 5/5
Me and my mother went for weight loss diet counselling. The diet program which she recommended helped both of us a lot to decrease our weight and increase our metabolism. I suggest you all to follow the 4 months program along with regular exercise since it naturally helps to decrease the weight. The best thing about the plan is that you can follow the same diet throughout your life and it will keep your health physically well maintained.I was impressed with the explanation which she gave us about the plan. She is very much educated and experienced in the field.
My experience in the diet program with Madam was not only fulfilling but also enlightening.
The diet program with Madam is not just a weight loss regime, its a LIFESTYLE CHANGE.
And above all it is a relaxed program!!!
Her program, her advice and her constant follow up meetings helped me stream line my daily routine of food intake as per the needs of my body.
Her receptiveness and kind nature keeps you relaxed and at the same time motivated.
Not only did I loose 11.5 kg of body weight but also gained new perspectives and knowledge of adopting and maintaining a healthy diet.
The clear explanation of diet patterns that I received from her educated me to understand, what was lacking in my routine and the application of simple methods to meet them.
Now by applying her simple methods on a daily basis I have taken control of my lifestyle and body weight (instead of it being the other way round).
Thank you very much Madam for this wonderful experience .
