Dear Maria Dello,CN
In July of 2011 I felt that I needed professional help in losing a substantial amount of weight in order to lower my cholesterol and triglycerides. At the same time it was my hope that I would feel and look better. I consulted my doctor and she recommended Maria Dello of Dellonutritionals in Manhasset.
In the five months that I worked with Maria I learned how to create health...y meals and snacks and how to modify my diet to a program that I could live with and enjoy permanently. I also learned about the importance of exercise in my daily life and how it helps contribute to achieving and maintaining weight loss. I have almost eliminated sugar and from my diet.
During the course of that five months I lost 27 pounds, normalized my triglycerides and lowered my cholesterol dramatically. I have also gone from a size 12 to a size 8 and feel much more energetic and motivated.
I could not have accomplished these goals without Maria's guidance. She is thoroughly conversant with the latest nutritional findings that result in permanent weight loss. She is also caring and easy to talk with and is as interested in your nutritional success as you are.
Dear Maria from Dellonutritionals,
I’m writing to thank you for all of your guidance and support on the HCG diet. With your help, I lost 17 pounds in 40 days. Throughout the years, I have struggled with weight loss so this was a major accomplishment for me. You were always available to answer any of my questions concerning the diet. I really appreciate your attentiveness throughout this process. Your knowledge of nutrition is incredible and the passion that you demonstrate with all of your clients is second to none. Thank you for guiding me through this successful weight loss journey.

Happy New Year to Dellonutritionals! Thanks to Maria Dello I am starting off the new year twenty-five pounds lighter with many healthy food choices to make eating interesting; thank you, Maria!
I feel like a New person and lost 25lbs
A few years ago, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, an illness that causes chronic body aches. For years, I suffered from fatigue, aches, pains, and a lack of energy. Additionally, I was carrying a lot of weight- approximately an extra 25 pounds then what I wanted to be.
My husband was very concerned about me. My doctor recommended that I see Maria Dello. Through Maria’s care and guidance, I was able to lose the weight.
She taught me how to properly diet, exercise, and take supplements in order to improve my condition. Not only did she give me the right regimen to heal my fibromyalgia, but she also assisted me in losing 25 pounds.
Maria was always patient, caring and attentive, constantly taking time to explain everything to maximize my results. She always listened to me and designed a program specific to my condition. After losing 25 pounds with Dellonutritionals,
I am pain free and I feel like a new woman! I have regained my health and I can do the things I always wanted to do but never had the energy for.
I never thought I could get rid of my pains but Maria gave me hope when no one else could. Thanks to Maria, I can now do the things I normally couldn't have done. Thank you Maria Dello,CN Dellonutritionals
"ANOTHER SUCCESS STORY AT DELLONUTRITIONALS"
The signs were everywhere but I misinterpreted them. For example, my
eighty year old mother told me I had to start wearing a girdle. My
response, "The nerve of her"! My nieces and nephews nicknamed me
'Auntie Sweet Tooth'. Such adorable children. Places where I spent
extended periods of time, such as my desk, the car, the sofa had
telltale signs of in-between-meals-snacking such as crumbs and empty
wrappers. Then there were the clothing manufacturers. GAP started
cutting their pants too low. I had to go up a size. TALBOTS redesigned
their clothing line. I had to go up a size. And the saleswoman at Ann
Taylor, gently urged me to try on their new 'curvy fit' pant. Not my
fault. The fashion industry was changing.
My weight gain was slow. It occurred over a fifteen year period and it
was almost imperceptible. A pound or two here, a tight waist band
there. And then, the change was undeniable. I had gained over twenty
five pounds and I gained it in one spot, the worst spot, in and around
my abdomen. Unhealthy, unsightly and obviously glaring in photos where
I turned sideways towards the camera, this weight gain was now a force
to be reckoned with. And I had no idea what to do. So, in January 2011,
I called Maria Dello. And now, a mere four months later, the weight is
gone, I have a new and healthier way of eating and The Gap, Talbots and
Ann Taylor have apparently once again redesigned their clothes and now I
have to go 'down a size'!!
Maria's approach towards my weight loss was designed around my
lifestyle, my needs and my wishes. My meal plan is not drastic. I am
eating a wide variety of foods that are healthy and fresh. None of this
pre-packaged toxic food that some weight loss programs pedal. I needed
to become a more thoughtful eater. And I needed to spend a little
extra time making sure I had healthy foods in the house. The best part
of Maria's program is that her expertise in nutrition, metabolism, and
understanding the whole person, makes for a simple plan to follow.
Friends and colleagues are constantly asking me about calories, counting
points, grams of fat, blah, blah, blah. I haven't had to bog myself
down with all of that. That is Maria's job and she does it well. Of
course----the opportunity to learn as much as you want from her is
there. But sometimes it's just easier to 'do as you are told'. Another
thing my girdle-wielding mother always told me.
Thank you Maria Dello, your a life saver!

“I lost 20lbs with Dellonutritionals and re-gained my life back” Brenda S.
I was puzzled and frustrated with my weight until I visited nutritionist Maria Dello, CN.
Since my three pregnancies I have been struggling to lose the extra 20 lbs of “baby fat” that was left behind. Being a mother of three I am very active but my body was changing and I was having a difficult time losing it. I tried to eat right, exercise and have even tried some of the latest diet trends, all with very little success. I was becoming very frustrated because exercising and dieting weren’t working.
A friend of mine recommended I see her nutritionist, Maria Dello. I was reluctant because, after all, I had tried everything and what was a nutritionist going to tell me that I didn’t already know? Well, as it turns out, there was a lot! At first she simply recommended the foods I should and shouldn’t eat. She also told me to eliminate all the sugar from my diet. While I did lose some weight, I still wasn’t where I wanted to be. Maria suggested I get a full blood test done. She requested they test for heavy metals in my system. The result? I had mercury poisoning and she immediately put me on a detoxification regimen. I eliminated fish from my diet, took the supplements she recommended, removed the mercury fillings I had since I was a child, and continued to exercise and eat healthy. After almost a year of following Maria’s instructions I lost over 20 lbs!
Maria changed my life. If it weren’t for her persistence and caring I would never have figured out what was deterring me from losing weight. Not only did I lose the extra weight I struggled so hard to lose, but I also feel healthier than I ever have. Most importantly, she has taught me to care about myself by treating my body as a treasure. Maria Dello is dedicated, professional and very knowledgeable in her field and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

NuBeauty for weight loss achievement
Ellen Confino has been struggling with her weight her whole life. As a busy working mom, she unsuccessfully but continually sought out many different avenues in her efforts to lose weight. This feat seemed like mission impossible. Being overweight inhibited her daily life and feeling frustrated was a daily occurrence. Consequently, she began to feel depressed because the weight gain was affecting her life. There were many instances when she felt like giving up. In her final attempt to tackle her weight issue, she made the decision to seek advice from Maria Dello, a certified licensed medical nutritionist and owner of Dellonutritionals. With Ms. Dello’s guidance and support, Ellen learned how to align and balance her busy schedule with healthy living. Maria also encouraged her to expand and apply her newfound knowledge to her family life. As a result of her perseverance and dedication, Ellen lost a total of 38lbs within a period of six months! She was thrilled! Ellen states “Ms.Dello never gave up on me and told me in detail how to accomplish my goals”. Ellen’s fatigue and chronic hot flashes are now a thing of the past. Ms. Dello states, “The goal is to feel optimal. When you are healthy, the body works more efficiently and in turn will aide in weight loss.” As a reward for her weight loss, Ellen was given a makeover by renowned hairstylist Michael Mazzei, owner of NuBest Salon. Her makeover included a modern hair cut by Mr. Mazzei and color treatment by colorist Elizabeth O’Boyle. Ms. Confino stated, “I felt like a new person-the makeover was the finishing touch to adorn my new healthy body.” Ms. Dello stresses the fact that as women approach forty they have a terrible time losing weight. It can be from a result of “chronic” dieting which results in a slow metabolism or perhaps they have an underlying medical condition. There are many facets to weight loss, and it’s nice to see people achieve their health goals. It brings them to a positive place as a result of their accomplishments.
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR WORKOUTS!
I went to see Maria Dello to learn about nutrition in relation to fitness. I work out consistently and wanted to combine the proper foods with these workouts. Maria noticed that I did not have the muscle tone that matched all my hard work and dedication. Maria put me on a plan and I began to see immediate results. What amazed me the most was that my headaches simply disappeared! Thanks to Maria, I no longer have these issues. Maria taught me a great deal about living a healthy lifestyle.
Furthermore, my son has Tourette Syndrome and Maria taught me about the side effects of wheat, gluten, diary, and sugar. Alex is now aware of how these foods affect his tics. When Alex eliminates these items (as best as he can) from his diet, his tics become minimal! He has also learned to eat much more healthy from this experience and has lost 20 lbs! Alex is now in college and doing fabulous! I have all the confidence in the world that he will take the wisdom he has acquired from Maria through his college years and beyond.
Maria has given me the ability to know right from wrong when it comes to my diet, and if I choose to drift a little away from a healthy lifestyle, I know NOW how to get back on track!
- DARIA P. FROM ROSYLN
Approaching a milestone birthday, I was extremely frustrated that I was still almost 40 pounds overweight as my 50th year was looming on the horizon. My husband suggested that I find a nutritionist because he believed I needed a “food coach” similar to my experience with my “workout coach” (personal trainer). He stated it simply, “You just have to have someone teach you how to eat.!”
The day I walked into Mario Dello’s office was the day I began to think differently about eating, exercise, medicine, and age. I quickly realized that Maria is passionate and knowledgeable regarding food and diet. I had learned so much in one short hour! Maria did not bombard me with products or advice. She asked me to do simply make minor, easy changes and eventually she scaffolded those behaviors into building blocks of a nutritious, healthy lifestyle.
Although it has only been nine weeks since I have been working with Maria Dello, I have shed 12 pounds but have gained an immense amount of knowledge that has transferred into a new found power over my life. I learned about the sugar addiction that I was bombarding my body with on an hourly basis. I learned about my own thyroid condition that was contributing to my headaches and general fatigue. I learned about the importance of hydrating your body with mineral water and vegetables. And most importantly, I learned that Maria Dello combines her knowledge of nutrition with kind, but firm guidance. I feel so much better and I know that turning 50 now is a joyous celebration, not the beginning of the end.

Another success story at Dellonutritionals (down 15lbs)
Cindy a young lady came to Dellonutritionals wanting to lose 20lbs. She worked out hard at her gym at least 5 days a week, in addition being on two soccer leagues. What she thought was a "good diet" was not working towards her weight loss goals, frustrated and confused of why she was not losing weight we designed a plan that would be conducive to her work out plan. She is now down 15lbs and is continuing with her plan to achieve her goal, she feels energetic and is eating a diet rich in nutrients, she never felt so good and say's "Thanks to the motivation and healthy meal plan Maria Dello, CN has given me I am now achieving my goals".
Maria has taught me so much about nutrition. I not only used your nutritional counseling on myself but I use it on a daily basis to help others. People are so uneducated when it comes to eating right. Even people who have been training for years have no clue about how important it is to have a solid nutritional plan. No matter how hard you work out, you will never be in shape unless you start from the inside. I have discovered that eating right can change your life.
