I had high cholesterol complaint for last 5 yrs, made lot of healthy changes to my diet but in my recent blood work I found my triglyceride were extremely high (400). I visited Alka and followed her diet plan for a month and a half and the triglycerides level came normal (80) and LDL was significantly lowered and HDL had improved. She provided me a diet which suits my life style and eating habits, provides with cooking methods for any recipe not used before. She brings positivity to the way we approach food balancing taste-buds and health. She never insist on any brands or supplements. She taught me how to read a food chart on a product and decide. I can write pages of valuable feedback on her but I end saying she adds value to your health. Good luck

Thanks Alka for helping me regulate my sugar levels and adapt to easy diet plan with minimal restrictions on what NOT to eat - something very very few dieticians do. I definitely feel better.
I also appreciate your hearing to me patiently and giving feedback for improvements not just diet related but overall for better quality life.
I would like if there was a patient portal page where I can log my food intake and reading online for you to review and provide feedback.
Thanks again for your time in helping me get my sugar levels back on track

I have consulated Alka on my Dr advice to manage a High A1C score. In 3 months it came down from 8.4% to 6.4% and I lost more than 25 pounds. Alka has very easy approach for healthy living. Alka was able to come with a food plan along with nutritional supplements that have helped me.

Great experience with counseling sessions. I was nervous when I found out I had gestational diabetes but the counseling, advice and detailed information calmed my nerves and helped me come up with a meal plan that works. Also the accessibility to ask questions and have sessions via phone is very convenient!

I was in NEED for a Nutritionist as per my Doctor since that can create more complications for the surgery I had. Somehow on google, I came across Alka Sheth and I wanted to see her especially because she would know Indian food (since I am a vegetarian). Alka is VERY VERY knowledgeable, to me she is like a therapist as well. She would spend as much time as you need, she explains everything very thoroughly and answers any questions you may have. I would recommend her to anyone I know that needs a Nutritionist. Alka is very easy to work with, very sweet and above all, A VERY CARING person. Thank You Alka for stirring me in right direction.

Alka Sheth provides outstanding nutrition advice by educating clients to intake right mix of calories along with the exercise. When I first met her, my HbA1c was 10.9. I am a vegetarian by diet. I was unaware that what I considered my protein sources also provided good amount of carbs. Guess what, my HbA1c after little over 3 months reduced to 6.0!!! She will work with the work schedule for appointments - in my case late evenings due to NYC commute reasons. Best part for me that she knows the pros and cons of each Indian cultural diet, which other nutritionists may not offer. I strongly recommend her service!

I was identified with hormonal imbalance during the month of September 2017 and I putting on weight. I increased by 10 pounds within a span of 6 months. My Gynecologist Dr. Bani Sarma recommended to see nutritionist Alka Sheth instead of using any medication for hormonal imbalance. When I first met Alka, she was very warm and friendly. I made my goal clear that I wanted be in the normal weight range for my height (lose about 10 - 12 pounds). She helped devise my diet plan and exercise. She motivated me all through every session. I went for my physicals in Jan 2018 and I lost about 10 pounds and my lab report is normal for cholesterol and hemoglobin. With the diet plan that I followed strictly, my bloating got reduced and I feel very much energized. Without Alka's help it would not have been possible. Thank you Alka.!
Surya M. Feb 2018
Thank you!!!! Lost 10 pounds, my cholesterol and hemoglobin are normal now!!!
Alka is very good. She took the time to understand my lifestyle and source of my calorie intake. Then carefully analyzed it and made recommended changes. She takes time and cares about her clients. She is also good with following ups and keeping up with progress, and providing motivation along the way. I 100% recommend Alka!!

Consulting Alka Sheth as Nutrition Expert was one of the better decisions of my life. She made me cognizant of the unhealthy food habits that I had been indulging in, made me aware of how to track daily Calorie consumption and, best of all, mapped my food plan for the week. The most gratifying part was that I didn’t have to give up any of my favorites, they were just to be consumed in moderation! Alka was a friend and partner in this journey and helped me gain control of my health in 3 months. I lost about 15 lbs and moved from diabetic to prediabetic range for Hb1Ac. Thank you so much.

She did a wonderful job at identifying areas to improve in my day-to-day diet considering my cravings, my likes and dislikes, restrictions etc.. It was great about her that she attended to me anytime i needed her and she took the initiative to call and enquire about me. Her advise was very helpful and result oriented. She is a wonderful nutritionist to consult as well as a wonderful person."
