Hello I wanted to share how my life got saved thanks to Deepa. I have been sick with stomach, digestion, acid reflux and heartburn related problems from Oct-2020. On top of that in nov-2020 I found out that my vita B12 levels dropped by a big number too. My digestion related issues were so bad that for two months i hardly could eat anything, all i could eat was some khichdi(rice with little split moong daal) and green beans, i could not eat any lentils, fruits or vegetables for 2.5 months, i lost 20 pounds but of course not healthy weight loss. I lost a ton of energy and was getting very tired. I have a toddler and i did not even have any energy to play with her as well. I saw doctors and started on heartburn and acid reflux medication but was not helping me. Then I started working with Deepa starting Jan 2021. Deepa made me write a journal covering everything i eat and how i feel every single day for a month. Every day she would review my entries and provide me her comments/feedback. In first week itself,with her tips, i started eating boiled vegetables like spinach, sweet potato, carrots, beets, , apples, squash.of course my body rejected it on day1 but deepa did not let me quit. She was in touch with me for every meal and after not giving up for some time, i started eating 5-6 boiled vegetables on a day. This change gave me energy i lost last year. I started making mung and chana sprouts and that changed how i feel as i could not digest any lentils or beans from oct2020. Before millet and barley gave me stomachache, but from last 3 months i have been eating pancakes made of milet, barley and ragi flour. Once my stomach started getting better with digestion, we also introduced PMU probiotics, they have helped me greatly with digestion and improved my metabolism. In summary, in last three months ever since i started working with Deepa, i am able to eat extremely nutritional food, which i could not digest last year. I am so very grateful and fortunate that i have her to guide me in this unexpected situation with my health. Secondly, I have been taking Power me up(PMU) multivitamin, it has really good vitamin B compositions. I am low in vita B and taking PMU multivitamin has helped me tremendously. I am so thankful that we have such powerful multivitamin that we can trust for our bodies. Again, from bottom of my heart, I am so thankful to Deepa for being so patient with me, making me patient, making me understand my body and mind, making me having faith in my body, making me realize the importance of gut health, power of fruits and vegetables, power of improved digestion. As I have been working so closely with her in the last three months, asking at least 10 questions a day, Deepa replies to me within minutes , sometimes within seconds, even on weekends. If i did not have her, i can't even imagine how i would have survived with digestion issues and low vitamin b12 issues. Thank you Deepa so very much ๐Ÿ™ God bless you.

About me

I graduated from high school and knew I wanted to go to the college to study nutrition. During my college years I was fascinated by the food science experiments and learning about various deficiencies and coming up with meal plans etc. After moving to te United States, I was given an opportunity to study other 'lucrative fields" but the desire to study advanced nutrition and public health led me to become a Registered Dietitian. I graduated in 2006 and since then I have been making every effort to "Make Nutrition Simple" for my patients. Over the years I have worked with patients with diverse cultural, socio-economical backgrounds. This experience has not only have helped me become a good practitioner, a listener but also a better human being. I owe my success to my patients. I have nothing but sense of gratitude for having to have found my passion for culinary nutrition. My goal is to able to play this forward and continue to help people make behavior changes to improve their quality of life.
I speak english and Indian languages mainly Marathi, Hindi, Gujarati and have working knowledge of Spanish.

Great people. Great passion for their clients.
Deepa is caring and passionate about healthful eating. She will help you think through your roadblocks and come up with a plan that works with your lifestyle.
Deepa understands your problems and concerns and customize action plan as per your needs or requirements. When I first saw her, I had really low energy issues and some other concerns but within 2 months, I started gaining energy by only eating right food at right time and it motivates me to do better with my eating habit. She taught me how to be mindful while choosing food. I like the way she checks up on you to see you are still on the right track as well as gives motivation. I am looking forward to achieve my goals with her help!!
Deepa is a wonderful person and a wonderful dietitian who genuinely cares about the health of the people she takes care of. I have type 1 diabetes and with her help I am feeling more in control and full of more energy! My problem was always inconsistentcy with meal planning and finding the right meals or even going out to get the ingredients! But working with her helped me stay on track and set a stable healthy diet. Diets may sound scary to certain people, but taking one step at a time and with help, it makes it easier to get and stay on track even if you may have your off days. Deepa is very willing to help out in any way she can and to get over the humps or difficulties and work with you to be the best you you can be!
DEEPA IS THE BEST!! I've been Deepa's client for at least 2 years. I had awful eating habits beforehand. My endocrinologist referred me to Deepa: "Don't go to anyone else". I am non-diabetic hypoglycemic, which is not a very common diagnosis. (I'm very happy that I am not diabetic.) Deepa put me on the right track. For example, I now eat more veggies and I rarely eat complex carbs. (I was a big user of complex carbs before I met Deepa.) I have symptoms of my diagnosis much less often, such as vision disturbances. Deepa is very knowledgeable---and she truly wants to help her clients. If you need a dietician/nutritionist, I strongly recommend Deepa at DuPage Dieticians.
Deepa is the best! She has helped me change my life and I now feel so well!
Deepa has been wonderful to work with as I continue my journey to being better to my body. She provided great resources for me right off the bat, and has helped break down large goals into smaller steps that I can work on right away to more easily transition to the bigger lifestyle goals. She is easy to talk to and understands underlying health issues I have. I have enjoyed working with her!
Deepa is smart, kind, and listens when I have questions and provides valuable feedback and suggestions. Deepa has been supportive in my anorexia recovery and has helped me maintain my veganism throughout. She also respects my holistic approach to recovery and thatโ€™s something I really appreciate.
