Interviewed by The Success Today – A Digital Webzine.
1) Tell us a bit about yourself and your business.
I am Dt. Deepika Bhojwani, founder of D_for_Diet. I market myself as a Dietician, Fatloss specialist, Post-partum weight management coach, Sports Nutritionist, and Keto coach. For the past six years, I’ve worked in the HealthCare and Fitness industries. I consider myself fortunate to have helped hundreds of patients ease medical ailments such as obesity, thyroid, diabetes, PCOD, and metabolic disorders by establishing efficient diet regimens. Compassion for our prospects motivates us to devote more time and energy to our tasks. And this is how I’ve been able to expand my business throughout the years. There are presently around 800 members on D for Diet.
2) What inspired you to start a career in this field?
Since my childhood, I have been a person who’s super obsessed with quality eating, and I don’t know why I was so fond of walking and cycling. As a result, my interest in the HealthCare and nutrition industries dates back many years. I started my work as a dietitian at one of Ahmedabad’s biggest gym chains, where I honed my talents and expertise. Meeting hundreds of people with varying needs and professional approaches improved my understanding of Human Anatomy and Physiology.
3) What services or products do you provide and how are they beneficial to your customers or clients?
We specialise in creating thorough diet regimens that fit our clients’ nutritional demands. Communication and Empathy are extremely important in our job. Understanding your patient’s or client’s lifestyle, eating preferences, work-life balance, medical issues, and fitness objectives are all factors we evaluate. Our unique selling point is that we consistently deliver on our promises.
Our mission is to transform society’s view of “Eating correctly and not Less.” People have many dietary misconceptions, and as a result, they categorise specific meals as good or evil, which is entirely obsolete. Our dietary counselling assists in creating a good mindset and patience to witness the miracle.
4) What have you achieved so far in this industry?
There are both tangible and intangible rewards that we’ve achieved. Thankfully, I’ve gained remarkable recognition in the industry, experience, knowledge, hunger, and self-esteem. We are working in collaboration with renowned companies like Infotech, LO..!, Ketofy, and Zevic. They seek our help for nutritional assessment, promotion, and awareness-creation.
But my priceless achievements are the love, trust, and dedication of my clients and patients; their hopefulness; excellent transformations; feedback; and a lot more than I had ever dreamt of. Our family of D_for_Diet is growing bigger each day, and this is one of my proudest achievements.
5) What drives YOUR PASSION and motivates you to work tirelessly?
My love for my profession is undefiable. Today, society is witnessing an obesity pandemic, body-shaming, and anxiety, and I am inclined to help people fight such factors. These things drive my passion to reach more people and work for their betterment.
It makes me content and proud when I see my clients/patients with increased confidence, a better lifestyle, dropping their sizes, feeling mentally happy, physically stronger, and feeling positive about themselves. Their lovely feedback is our motivation to put more effort into our work each day. Each transformation is personal to me because we spent countless hours working on it.
My Family has always been my support system in all my stages of struggle, tiny achievements, credits, hurdles, sleepless hours, pressure projects, job-life, clinic-life, moments of success and everything I’ve witnessed. I owe this stage to them equally as I do to myself.
6) What is your one piece of advice for achieving success in life?
When your skills, perseverance, and most importantly, discipline, are all channelled in the right direction, that direction will lead you to success. It never happens overnight. In fact, for me, it took endless sleepless nights of work and dedication. Just put your heart, soul, and body entirely into the process.
Success is not a Destination to reach. I’d say it’s a pleasurable Journey that keeps you teaching life lessons. So Never settle down. Take your setbacks as challenges and come out wiser than before. Just believe in yourself, strive each day, update your knowledge and leave no stone unturned.
One has to be a Modest Listener and Learner to be extraordinary in their successful career.
