I have type II diabetes. Shahzadi, you need to understand how much you have helped me. I have had a real awakening working with you - with everything you have taught me and broken it down for me to understand. Its been a great experience because now I am ready to go back home and get going. With my blood glucose numbers going down and the way you explain things so easily and simply and show us practically has been the key. We need to be listening to great people like you! Thank you so much for coming into my life and it was a great experience working with a nutritionist like you. You have had a huge impact on my life - how I eat and you have inspired me to make positive changes to my health. I feel so great with your help and support.
I feel that everything was remarkable. You being a chef and someone who cooks on a daily basis, you’ve taught me so much about ingredients and spices that I can use in order to season food well. I used to stay away from so called “healthier foods” as I didn’t know how they would taste. Through my experience learning how to better control my blood sugars, you’ve also opened my eyes and now there are things I want to try that I can definitely implement into my diet easily on a daily basis. I appreciate you taking the time to teach and not only teach but to show and let us do it together. I am a visual learner, and I know that once I see it done, I can better grasp it and take that knowledge and go with it versus a dietitian or nutritionist where they would just hand me a piece of paper. I mean I'm not going to learn from that. I appreciate you and everything that you do and you are so passionate about people living with diabetes and changing their lifestyle, so I thank you.
Shahzadi's been teaching me and my wife about nutrition and healthy eating to control our blood sugars. And she has done a wonderful job. I've learnt a lot from her. There were some new foods that I didn't expect to experience and they were actually delicious and I would never have ate them, had I not come to this program and she had not been here. She encouraged and supported us into trying things at least. It turned out delicious! It has been a wonderful experience working with her and it has been very informative. The smoothies session was great as we learnt how to make different smoothies. This is not something we did at home as we didn't know what to put in them. We also enjoyed learning about food myths in diabetes and Shahzadi did a great job in busting these. My sugars have improved considerably, and with the right education on lows, I am preventing these successfully. I have gone away learning to be more kind to myself and taking it a step at a time, with Shahzadi's support. Thank you!
We had the great pleasure of working with Shahzadi during the production of our reality TV show, Reversed (filmed in Montego Bay, Jamaica). While it was very clear from the beginning that we were in for some very tasty, delicious and healthy meals, were very surprised to note how quick and easy these were to prepare! Simply amazing!
Shahzadi also distinguished herself as the consummate professional and was such a joy to be around at all times. We instantly gravitated to her calming and joyful spirit and demeanor. In fact, she was widely regarded as the surrogate mom for everyone on set. 🙂
We are grateful for the privilege of having worked with and maintaining our connections with Shahzadi. We highly recommend her and her recipes to anyone seeking to improve their lifestyle!
I'm a type 1 diabetic, RN and certified diabetes educator. I've had the pleasure of working with Shahzadi and I'm blown away by her level of knowledge and her understanding - how to disseminate information that will save lives, in a way that's very simple and easy to understand and easy to implement because that is what we really want! It's about giving people the skills that they need to be well. She provided accurate information to the guests on the show struggling with diabetes in a simple way and I am thrilled to have worked with her on ReverseD - the first diabetes tv reality show, to be aired on Discovery Health Channel. She is a wealth of information, she's patient, she's thorough, and she knows her stuff. Thank you!
Thank you Shahzadi!! I am very thankful that God and the Universe brought us together! You are an amazing health coach always keeping me on track, helping me to understand my diabetes, and giving me input on all levels. Hopefully the power that be will let us keep in touch. I will keep tracking in the wellness plans and will look back often to your notes. Again thank you for being you!!!
All the patients loved her! She worked with the chiropractor to understand the needs of the patients and helped to develop weight loss and nutritional programs for culturally diverse patients. The meal plans and recipes were catered specifically to the patients needs, and this significantly increased compliance because it was using their own ethnic food choices and modifying them. She also instituted grocery tours which were received very well, and helped patients make educated choices when shopping. This was a very unique approach to nutritional counselling and the feedback from the patients was very positive. We would highly recommend shahzadi’s services as she would be an asset to any clinical setting, and especially useful for those clinics that are just starting to introduce nutritional services for their patients.
