It’s no secret. Every client of Ashvini Mashru’s has a story. A story in how Ashvini helped them achieve their health, nutrition and weight loss goals. So, with that in mind, following is a selection of testimonials from clients that encapsulate the types of successes and working relationships Ashvini has had with her clients.
"I really enjoyed the session. You clearly are the expert. You taught me several things yesterday and gave me tips that I was thinking about the whole day. Much of it made sense. I kept focusing too on the mindset part and why I keep failing. Because of the info you gave me, I do now believe I can change my mindset. It really is like the analogy I gave where if someone keeps failing at a job, and quitting or get fired, then they think they will never be successful. That’s how I feel about the diets I have done and I am now certain that is why I keep going into it all with a negative “I am going to fail attitude.” But thanks to you, I know that if I work on this with you educating me and giving me the right tools, I can set myself up to achieve goals."
"It has been years trying to get down to my target weight and I have not been successful up until this point. I would always give up after not seeing significant weight loss. Since I was not able to get on a healthy track by myself, I thought I would contact Ashvini at Wellness Nutrition Concepts and get serious about my health goals. She was able to help me with my mindset and focus on my health rather than just the weight loss. She taught me that focusing on my health would ultimately result in weight loss. I learned that when I eat healthy and get all the nutrients I need that the cravings for sugar and carbs go away. I understand now that by eating healthy and feeling satisfied is the key so that I don’t turn to the foods that are not good for me. The other thing I learned was to stay consistent and think about my health in the long term and all of the benefits that would come along with meeting my health goals.The weekly one on one meetings kept me on track and put the focus on health and accountability. This was the jump start that I needed."
"Before I started working with Ashvini of Wellness Nutrition Concepts, I was struggling with losing the rest of the weight I knew I needed to lose. I had lost a significant amount of weight 12 years ago, but never reached my goal.
Not finishing what I started was causing me to be pretty down on myself. On top of that, I recently had developed a knee problem and decided it was time that I complete the weight loss journey for my knee’s sake. One weekend I saw Ashvini being interviewed on a local news show and decided that day to call her.
Ashvini helped me understand what eating right looked like. My knowledge of the right mix of proteins, fats, and carbs had been limited all my life. Although I have always considered myself fairly active, she helped me understand where my calorie intake needed to be in light of my activity level and also reintroduced me to the importance of strength exercise in that mix. I travel some for my work, so she helped me learn to navigate around some of the eating hazards inherent in travel – at times talking through a “mistake” in choices I made on the road so I knew how I could handle that situation differently next time.
Since Ashvini started working with me I have found that she is literally in my head at times – often times! If I don’t feel my best, I try to regroup and pick more nutritious foods, get more active, place more emphasis on the amount of sleep I’m getting, focus on drinking more water, and so helpful – I get more meticulous in tracking and logging my food! Bottom line, I try to make more mindful choices. I am now solidly at the weight goal I set for myself years ago (still on the journey to reach the slightly lower goal Ashvini and I set). And on most days, I am HAPPY with my progress thus far and FEEL HEALTHIER! Thank you, Ashvini!!!"
"I worked with Ashvini over the course of 7 weeks for the purpose of becoming educated on nutrition and healthy eating habits and to improve my diet and lifestyle. Ashvini is extremely knowledgeable and was able to customize her program to take into consideration my hypothyroidism. I learned how to read food labels, what foods to eat, when to eat them and in what order (and much more). She even coached me through a vacation! Her supportive but no-nonsense approach kept me focused and on track. I lost weight, I feel great, and most importantly, I was able to decrease the amount of medication that I was on for my hypothyroidism. I can't thank her enough for her help."
"Ashvini is committed to nutrition education and helping people adopt healthy eating habits. We recently worked together on developing an eating plan for me that took my lifestyle into consideration, while still achieving my nutritional goals. As a result of our sessions, I am making better food choices and feel great!"
"I highly recommend Ashvini Mashru for nutrition counseling. Her education and qualifications place her at the very top. In a short time Ashvini has taught me that diets do not work (and never will) and how to eat the various food groups to get the most benefit out of them. She has a very encouraging attitude and truly cares about her clients' health and well-being. If you're looking for a nutritionist to help you feel healthier and get on track with eating correctly, I highly recommend Ashvini. Her services are personalized and it's a joy working with her."
"Ashvini delivered an amazing workshop at The Healthier You Conference which was hosted by my company. She engaged the audience by helping them create their personal 'vision' to achieve their weight loss goals. Based on the evaluations, participants mostly enjoyed the interactive exercises and information that Ashvini shared. I'm so glad that she was selected to facilitate a workshop at our conference!"
"I have worked with Ash for almost four (4) months now, and I am thrilled to recommend her to everyone who is interested in developing a healthy lifestyle. Ash makes herself accessible to her clients and responds quickly. She is very knowledgeable and supportive and has helped me tailor a plan that fits my needs and my food preferences. Ash’s enthusiasm is contagious, a true gem!"
"Ashvini Mashru recently presented at a women's networking lunch called Polka Dot Powerhouse and it was absolutely terrific! She was professional, well-spoken, poised and informative. Women in our organization felt empowered and positive after her thoughtful presentation about "Finding your why." Ashvini really opened up to the group, showed a lot of vulnerability and shared her personal story about finding her "why". It was touching and all eyes were glued to her, she holds a very captive audience. Then members were able to ask questions and she responded accordingly with thoughtful feedback to better assist them in how to "find their why". She really listened to each question and went above and beyond when answering. By finding your "why" our group left with the tools and mindset needed to achieve their personal goals from the inside out starting with the core of who they are. In addition to this event, I have seen her speak on several segments of FOX 29 Philadelphia News that have been incredible. Every time I've seen her the topic is different and include giving nutrition tips and sharing how to incorporate various herbs and spices to help you savor the flavor of eating right. I would highly recommend her as a speaker and look forward to working with her personally and hearing her speak again in the future."
"Choosing to work with Ashvini was the best investment I ever made for myself. I have been struggling with IBS all my life and struggling with my weight for 8 years due to hypothyroidism. I was feeling tired, had no energy, and didn’t want to do anything. Needless to say, this didn’t give me much self-esteem which caused me to be so disappointed in myself that I was emotionally eating. I realized one night when I couldn’t sleep again, that I didn’t want to feel or look like this anymore, so I started researching dietitians/nutritionists on the internet. I found many in the area but the one that I kept coming back to was Ashvini of Wellness Nutrition Concepts.
After our initial consultation, I knew she was the right one to help me with my problems. She helped me understand that through nutrition and exercise, I could reach my goals. She provided me with information that I wish I had my whole life. I found out the things that I should eat and the things that I shouldn’t eat and within one week I felt better and the inflammation in my body was going away. She has given me the tools I need and explained how to use these tools in order to lose the weight that I wanted. Within the first 4 weeks I lost 7 pounds.
I really enjoyed our weekly meetings. Each week I learned something new and set goals for myself. She has been a very positive influence on me and has given me a new mindset and encouraged me to reach my goals. I now have the right information for me to look and feel the best that I can. Thank you Ashvini!!"
"I had the privilege of introducing Ashvini Mashru at New Jersey Conference for Women sponsored by the Princeton Chamber of Commerce. Ashvini’s workshop “Leading by Wellness: Be the CEO of your Health” was both inspirational and informative. She shared innovative strategies and best practices that both individuals and corporate wellness leaders can use to not only promote health and wellness but to improve the quality and cost effectiveness of care."
"Before I started working with Ashvini of Wellness Nutrition Concepts, I was struggling with my weight and the ability to stop myself from eating foods I knew were unhealthy. It was causing me to gain weight, feel sad and upset about the way I looked in my clothes, not wanting to go out and take pictures with my family and be a part of social gatherings for fear of someone staring too long at the way I looked. Ashvini helped me understand how to eat foods that my body needs.
Ashvini clearly explained how to break my foods down into groups and gave me tools such as paperwork and physical items so when I'm eating breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack I can make sure I'm eating a proper amount of nutrients my body while satisfying my hunger.
Since Ashvini started working with me I have found that food isn't always the "enemy," it's all about eating healthy and exercise. What you eat is just as important as how you work out. I have seen the physical results: weight loss, face changes, arms smaller, pants fit "WAY BETTER!!!" and also the mental results.
I'm not embarrassed to take a picture with family and friends, I can go to a restaurant and understand what needs to be eaten instead of "that looks good, I'll try that"."
"For the past two months I have worked with Ashvini and never experienced more weight loss in my life! I have gained a boatload of confidence, motivation, and passion for bettering myself. My diet has changed, my outlook on food as changed, I no longer use food as comfort but now as fuel for my body. Ashvini has taught me so much and has been cheering me on since I started. If I feel like I am having a bad day and might fall off track, I e-mail Ash and she gets back to me QUICKLY! Let me tell you, if you have a stressful day and you see cookies and have an urge, CALL ASHVINI! She gives you the tools for successful weight loss. Don't do "diets" don't drink shakes or take pills that will help you "lose weight". MEET WITH ASH, she teaches you the correct and effective way of losing weight, managing what you eat, how much of what you eat, and what your eating patterns are. This has been the best decision of my life! I hope you take my advice so you can start feeling confident in your body too!!!"
"I hosted a workshop for my clients that was lead by Ashvini Mashru. Ashvini was a joy work with - she met each deadline as we went through the planning phase, helped promote the event to her contacts, arrived early, and was prepared on the day of the event. She is a professional.
Ashvini's presentation was well thought out and extremely informative. She kept the audience engaged and was able to present the information in a way that was scientific, but not too technical.
I have no problem recommending Ashvini's services as a dietitian or as a presenter!"
"Before I started working with Ashvini of Wellness Nutrition Concepts, I had been advised by my physician at my annual medical check-up that my cholesterol and my sugar numbers were rising but not a great deal. My physician suggested that I could regulate both the cholesterol and sugar through diet. I had no idea of how to regulate my diet nor did I have any idea of what kinds of foods would help control cholesterol and sugar.
I decided I needed a professional person to teach me about food and the results of food in relationship to my body. I went to google to see who and what I could find to help me and realized that I needed a nutritionist to educate me about food and its value.
I found Ashvini of Wellness Nutrition Concepts and after a telephone conversation, I decided she was exactly what I needed. At our first meeting she assessed my current eating habits and medical dilemma. Ashvini started from that point to teach me about food, my body and how to eat to get the results I needed for a healthier body and life style.
Working with Ashvini is teaching me that protein and fiber are what I need to control my cholesterol and sugars. Protein, fiber, fruit, good fats, fresh and organic foods, portion control and variety are the goals to attain at each meal.
Ashvini has also taught me how to read food labels. Now when planning for a meal I think what is the protein and what is the fiber I am having for this meal.
Thank you, Ashvini, my energy is higher, more level and I feel great."
"Before I started working with Ashvini of Wellness Nutrition Concepts, I was struggling with weight loss.
It was causing me a lot of lack of self-confidence and low energy levels in my day to day activities and also a kind of depressing feeling within me that I could never go back to my pre-pregnancy weight, where on the other hand all my friends were back in there skinny jeans within a year of their deliveries. Ashvini clearly explained how to follow a healthy lifestyle and keep it that way for the rest of your life without losing all the fun that comes along the way.
Since Ashvini started working with me I have found that my eating habits have become better. I have started to make healthier food choice for myself and my family. There is a great difference in the way I feel about myself. Ash has shown me there is “Big” power in “Small” consistent changes…I have never ever felt hungry or miserable or craving for more food. As long as you stick to her instructions you will get results, there is no chance that you will not see the weight loss. She has been very supportive and motivating throughout the journey. She makes sure you are always on track.
And I have lost 7 lbs in 6 weeks with her. And never ever felt hungry or miserable or craving for more food. My energy levels have boost up, I gained my self-confidence back. Definitely started feeling very proud of myself when my friends and colleagues compliment me on my weight loss. All thanks to Ashvini.
Veggies and fruits are my new buddies for the rest of my life. Her tricks helped me incorporate fruits and vegetables in my diet deliciously. So now, I don’t fall back on my fiber content anymore. She sketched out a plan that worked best for me for which I’m very thankful to her. The plan helps to get good nutrition and promote a healthy weight loss at the same time.
What more can I say…Don’t wait any longer to get to your healthier self with Ashvini.
Thank you Ash! You are the BEST!"
"Working with Ashvini from Wellness Nutrition Concepts has opened my eyes to proper nutrition. Before I started working with her, I was exercising regularly, but definitely not fueling my body with what it needed. During each session with Ashvini, we reviewed my personal nutritional needs. She explained and gave me examples of what to eat for each meal and even snacks. Ashvini provided me with some great recipes and wonderful resources. With her assistance I now understand the combinations and quantity of food I need to have a healthy body inside and out. I feel so much more energized and look forward to continuing on the road to a healthier and happier me."
"Ashvini communicates her powerful message with a gentle spirit that is captivating. She shares her story with a natural confidence and heartfelt energy that is both thought provoking and inspiring. She has a unique ability to share useful information and how to implement that information into your life starting today! Joyful, supportive, articulate, informative and authentic describe Ashvini's gifts to her audience...so delighted to have had the opportunity to see, feel and hear her important message."
"Ashvini spoke at a Center City Proprietors Association event that I attended, and my company sponsored, on How to Make Food Work for You - specializing in performance for business leaders. She was enjoyable to listen to, informative, and the information she provided was valuable. I would recommend her for any corporate event or networking group event."
"Ashvini is a great advocate to women, who like herself, have very busy lives in today’s society. A mom making herself a priority seems anti intuitive for her to do, but it makes perfect logical sense and, I contend, even necessary.
Helping busy moms one busy mom at a time is Ashvini’s noble worthy objective that can impact not only the health and well-being of the mom but also improve the health and well-being of her children and spouse. Ashvini’s unique and personalized service is one, that if taken to completion has the potential to leave a positive legacy for generations to come.
Ashvini’s unique training as a Registered Dietitian and a Certified Wellness Coach is a great combination that can lead the busy mom to the transformed life that she desires and she deserves. Add to this her genuine caring for the cause of having healthy moms, the combination is a great recipe for success.
Mother Teresa said “We can do no great things, we can only do small things with great Love”. Ashvini does her seemingly small thing with great love. I recommend all moms take the time to consult with her to get themselves on the right track. They can then, better lead their families to a joyful and happy life."
"I began working with Ashvini at a time when my work schedule was incredibly hectic. I was traveling on a regular basis, and found myself eating a lot of processed foods that had little nutritional value. Many days I felt sluggish and run down. Finally, I reached out to Ashvini, and she has helped me to improve my eating habits. By making small changes each week, and focusing on a few goals at a time, Ash has helped me make a habit of healthier eating. She didn’t overwhelm me by throwing a bunch of information at me during our first session, but gave me the tools and knowledge I needed to make healthier choices over the course of our sessions.
As we progressed through the program, Ash was very patient with me. She worked with my schedule, and we were able to conduct most of our sessions over the phone (from airports, hotel rooms, etc.). Due to the amount of travel I was doing, she rearranged the order of our sessions so that we could focus on the information around eating out earlier than usual. The information that she gave me was incredibly helpful during my travels.
Since I have started working with Ash, I have never felt hungry, and have had more energy in my day to day life. I have learned how to control portions and properly balance each of my snacks and meals, even when I’m not at home. More important than any numbers on the scale, I FEEL healthier after working with Ashvini. Thanks, Ash! It’s been a great experience!"
"Ashvini offers nutritional guidance to the clients of Vertex Fitness. Her professionalism, vast experience and numerous degrees make her a trusted referral partner. She provides the one on one education and coaching our clients need in a supportive and caring way. Our clients gain valuable information from her blog, articles and radio show. She is an example of a true health and fitness professional."
"Hi Ash.....A year or so ago I came to you following my annual visit to my primary care doctor (2014)......I was concerned because my sugars and cholesterol were on the rise.....Since your nutrition counseling with me I am happy to report that I have just come back from this year's annual check up (2015) and my cholesterol is down and also my sugars both in normal ranges.......thank you so much for your help and educating me how to eat properly....Thank you Ashvini!"
"Before I started working with Ashvini of Wellness Nutrition Concepts, I was struggling with generally not feeling good. I felt like my immune system was out of whack, and I was tired all of the time. I never learned the right way to eat. I needed to lose weight, and tried diet after diet, without any success. Also, my cholesterol was too high, and I really didn’t want to take drugs to reduce it.This prompted me to call Ashvini.
Ashvini wisely said that I needed to change my lifestyle. That this was not a “diet”, and by making small changes each week, it would help me feel better, lose the weight slowly, and reduce my cholesterol. She taught me what things to eat, and how much. Boy, was I wrong about portion size. No diet I was ever on taught me that. Besides the portion control, what really helped with the weight loss, was the combination of things that I was to eat that I would not have figured out on my own. The thing is….it wasn’t hard to follow the plan that Ashvini laid out for me. I found that I liked a lot of things that I never tried before.
It’s really working out great for me. The weight is coming off and I’m anxious to see what my cholesterol is now. Thank you, Ashvini, for helping me to feel better!"
"Ms. Mashru recently presented at the Greater Philadelphia NAWBO Main Line Power Friday meeting and it was fantastic! NAWBO is the National Association for Women Business Owners. Members of our organization felt empowered after her presentation on "Finding your why." Ms. Mashru shared not only her personal story about finding her "why" but also listened to members, explained briefly theirs and she responded accordingly with great feedback to better assist them in how to "find their why". By finding your "why" our members left with the tools to help them on a path that could assist them in achieving their goals from the inside out verse the outside in. We look forward to having her present again in the near future. Highly recommended."
"Not only does Ashvini know her stuff when it comes to nutrition and healthy lifestyles, I admire her acumen as a businesswoman. She is polished and professional, as well as supportive and nonjudgmental. She is also a fantastic educator - Ashvini's tele-classes and articles position her as an expert in her field. Ashvini is impressive and I have learned so much from her!"
"I contacted Ashvini to assist my mother with dietary modifications when she developed diabetes. As a physician, I knew that a change in food quality and quantity would help my mother reduce her blood sugar. Ashvini did a wonderful job in outlining a step-by-step plan that was easy to understand and follow. She was attentive to my mother's needs and very caring and personable with her. I recommend Ashvini highly to anyone seeking nutritional advice and seeking to improve their overall health and well-being."
"Before I started working with Ashvini of Wellness Nutrition Concepts, I was struggling with improper eating and no balance in my diet. Once we started working together, Ashvini began retraining me and my thinking about eating. She clearly explained how to incorporate healthy foods and be mindful of what I was eating. I always thought I was a healthy eater, but realized through our sessions I was not paying enough attention to portion sizes and the combinations of food that my body needs for energy and my well being. As a result, I am no longer afraid to eat certain foods and take the time to make sure I am eating three balanced meals a day. Especially breakfast which I always neglected. I now realize the importance of eating the right foods to keep me going. I definitely have more energy and a better understanding of what to eat. If I ever had a question, I could easily email Ash and she would get back to me right away. Working together has been easy and I know that if I ever need Ashvini's support, she is always there to help guide me properly."
"Ashvini Mashru did a fabulous job today during her smoothie presentation at the Professional Women's Business Network Health Fair. Her knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism were obvious! Very nice table presentation, too! I am looking forward to trying some of her smoothie recipes. Yum! You maintained focus and enthusiasm despite the chaotic environment and lack of 'audience' the way it was set up.
Looking forward to rying some your smoothie recipes!"
"Ashvini is passionate about her profession. She has devoted herself to her craft and has much valuable information and strategies to share. Good health is one of our most precious possessions. Call Ashvini to help keep yours on track!"
"Ashvini gave an educating presentation on Diet Myths at my Studio Awaken With Light. She was punctual from start to finish. She was well prepared and provided outstanding information and educational material to those who attended. Furthermore, she presented with the upmost professionalism and proved herself to be an expert in her field! I highly recommend Ashvini!"
