I have been suffering with PCOS,
and pancreatitis and have been
having major challenges with losing
weight. I've tried many diets and have
seen other professionals with limited
success. After seeing Dr. Vince, things
have been going well. He was correct
in that my portion sizing was off and I
was eating too much affecting my
weight and blood glucose. I also
figured out I wasn’t cooking oatmeal
correctly, hence eating too much of
that. It’s much better now … lol.
Between Dr. Vince's nutrition and
supplement guidelines and the
exchange guidelines for diabetics,
I’ve lost 32 pounds, and down 15%
body fat. My ACI is 5.0, meaning my
blood sugars are normal, I’m only on
1 metformin and I feel fantastic. I’m
running 5k 3’xs a week, doing yoga,
and weights as well.
Anyways, thank you Dr. Vince for your
“Dr. Vince Ziccarelli helped me make better choices when it comes to my eating habits. The individualized meal plan he designed is helping me achieve my weight loss goals. This meal plan came with a long list of food choices and how many portions I should have per day. The suggested food choices gave me the opportunity to try foods I never tried before. These led me to enjoy foods I never would have tried if Dr Vince Ziccarelli had not suggested them. In addition to the meal plan, he provided me with weekly support and guidance to help me stay on track to achieve my goals.” J.G.
For years I was suffering with chronic bouts of IBS, irregular bowel movements, bloating, and poor energy. After consulting with Vince and following the customized nutrition program, I finally have overcome my digestive woes, the bloat is 90% gone, my bowels are regular, my energy is better, and I feel great. The side benefit is that I had lost weight as well. - K.T.
When I first started to come to see Vince Ziccarelli for nutrition counselling, I knew I had a lot of work to do to obtain the nutrition and fitness goals that I had set for myself, however, Vince created a step-by-step program with me that had manageable chunks that I could soon recognize progress through. It gave me the motivation to continue and before I knew it, I was well on my way to achieving my nutrition and fitness goals. Vince is a very committed, professional nutritionist…he delivers no gimmicks or outrageous diets, just a practical approach to eating and living well.
Thank you, Dr. Vince, for all of your help.
“ I have dealt with the effects of irritable bowel syndrome for over 10 years even to the point in this past year where it was effecting every area of my life. Over the past four months Dr. Vince has worked closely with me and literally changed my life. My symptoms are nearly 100% better! His knowledge is extensive and his support and encouragement is unparalleled. From suggestions on where to buy specialty items or how to dine out while dealing with food intolerances, to regular email check ups, to natural remedies, Vince has gone above and beyond. Making changes to one’s diet is not easy, however, with support like this I don’t think anyone can fail! - A. Marsh Former IBS Sufferer
I’ve suffered with chronic immune problems whereby I would get colds and flu’s very often. After years of struggling, I saw Dr. Vince and he put me on a sensible nutrition and supplement program to build my immune system and now I have been feeling much better. I rarely get sick as my immune system is much stronger. - E. Z.
Back when I was in elementary school, gastro specialists regularly made a diagnosis of chronic gastritis and cholecystitis but their recommendations did not solve the problem. A few years ago, I realized that I have IBS but still was not able to reduce the symptoms. I decided to give it one more chance and see a dietitian. It was one of the wisest decisions I ever made. No other specialists but Vince Ziccarelli took time and helped me to discover (finally, in my 30s!) that I’m also lactose intolerant. After I revised my diet and started taking regularly supplements, as recommended by Vince, my digestive health has now improved by 90%!!
Thank you, Dr. Vince, for improving the quality of my life.
Recently I had an opportunity to attend Dr. Vince Ziccarelli’s seminar on the effects of balanced nutrition in our later years. I was pleasantly surprised with how entertaining and informative the seminar was. The seminar taught me that balance is key to a healthy lifestyle now and later in our lives. Of course, it seems we’ve heard this before; however, with impressionable images and an encouragingly positive message, I walked away from this seminar with increased verve and dedication to improve and enjoy my life NOW.
I’ve attended many nutritional seminars and came away feeling deflated because the message given was often dictatorial and discouraging. Since I have an emotional connection to food, dieting is not an option for me. However, Vince’s seminar has taught me how to incorporate my favourite “sinful” foods into a healthy nutrition plan which has enabled me to feel hopeful rather than hopeless.
Dear Dr. Vince Ziccarelli, I wanted to let you know that the staff at BC Biomedical Laboratories Ltd. Enjoyed listening to your presentation “Optimizing Health and Nutrition for a Healthy and Well Being” over the lunch hour Monday March 20, 2006. You are an excellent speaker. You fielded questions with ease and brought humour into the presentation. You are very knowledgeable about how diet can affect many medical conditions. Your recommendation of keeping a diary and comparing it to the Canada’s Food Guide is one I will attempt. I’ve received many positive comments from the 40 people that joined us. It was a pleasure working with you to organize this event. We would like to invite you to return and educate us on the other areas. Unfortunately we ran out of time to hear all your information. Thank you for your educational lecture on nutrition.

Thank you Dr. Vince, I didn't have a chance to say how much I enjoyed the Natural Health Products workshop for dietitians. Your information was good, and I will utilize it. It was a good presentation.

Pillars to Nutritional Wellness was an excellent seminar to increase health awareness You were able to "pack a lot of punch" into the short sessions we had scheduled and I received very positive feedback from coworkers. We hope to hold another of your wellness sessions later in the year.
Thanks once again.
