Why I created The 10 Pound Challenge


10pc 2014 pic me - beige shirtI’m on a mission to help make it simple for women to have the body, energy and health they want, by taking the guesswork out of what to eat.” With all of the nutrition information available, it can get confusing about what will work best for you, so my goal is to show you how you can eat whole, natural, real food and achieve your healthy weight loss goals. As a registered dietitian for over 13 years, working behind the scenes and on camera as the nutrition expert for the television shows The Last 10 Pounds Bootcamp and Village on a Diet, plus helping thousands of clients, I’ve learned that when it comes down to weight loss, everyone wants it to be simple. So in this program, I’ve put together my best and most simple yet effective strategies to help you get in shape.


Here’s what a few members of The 10 Pound Challenge say about the program



… A bit skeptical at first, I joined Maria’s “10 pound Challenge” in 2013 and I’ve achieved my goals as I’ve lost over 12 pounds in 9 weeks.

I truly enjoyed working through Maria’s program as it was simple, interactive, and her support was invaluable. I not only learned about healthy nutrition but was given many tools and amazing new recipes that kept it lively and fun.

I’ve followed many weight loss programs over the years but this plan has been the best as Maria always kept it personalized, fresh, flexible, challenging and fun. She is very knowledgeable, creative and above all motivating and always accessible to answer any question or provide that bit of motivation when needed. I would recommend Maria’s plan to anyone who wants to keep it simple and achieve results.

This is the best gift you could give yourself for a healthy 2014!



I lost 7 pounds...I believe the real success came from the practices I learned and have continued using. Smaller portions, less sugar and fat and better eating habits. Maria is wonderful and enthusiastic about the program. She is the best!



I went from 179 lbs to 169 lbs in exactly 8 weeks! The key, for me, was to combine the proper diet and exercise.  I followed Maria’s 10 Pound Challenge and worked out with Stella (of Stellar Personal Training) 3 times a week along with hockey once a week.  

Maria’s 10 Pound Challenge is not a short term diet, it is a lifestyle change. I am a chef by trade so it is very important to me that I still enjoy the food I am cooking and eating.  This was still possible with the flexibility built into the plan. 

In eight weeks she educates you so you have the tools to continue eating well and making the right choices even after the program is over.

It was amazing to me that after many different attempts to shed a few more pounds (Paleo diet, no carbs, wheat belly diet) most had me craving food and counting the days until it was done.

With the 10 pound challenge I found the meal plans and weekly challenges fun and exciting. Even when the first 8 weeks were up I am still easily following the same standards of exercise and meal plans…

Thanks Maria and Stella!



It was wonderful how accessible Maria was throughout the program. Warm, personable, approachable and very realistic regarding the challenges we all face surrounding food and nutrition. It was a pleasure to get to know Maria and work with her in achieving my goals. Thank you Maria



It was a pleasure to work with Maria, it was so refreshing to get new ideas and how to tackle meal plans and the combination. I find there is there is sooooooo much information out there and it’s hard to wade through it all and make sense of it all.



I loved the meal plans, and am going to continue to stick with them. I like Maria’s whole food approach…


Here’s what people who have worked with me and used my meal plans say!


Your meal plans have literally changed my life and I am SO grateful for your help. I don’t know if you know how hard a struggle it is for those of us who try to self-educate ourselves on nutrition and balanced meal plans…All the best to you and yours, you have been a blessing to me and my family – Lynda



So the weight is still coming off.  I’m bouncing between 131 and 133/134. I’m hoping I’ve kissed 135 good bye. I still haven’t bought new jeans because my old ones are fitting, but I’m super excited to buy a new pair for fall.  I can’t wait to see what size I am.  

I have a pair of old ones I wear ALL the time and the other day I was able to slip them off without unbuttoning them. I owe u so much, seriously you’ve changed and perhaps saved my life. Who knows what my health would be like in 5 to 10 years if I stayed on the path I was on. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo  – Mina



I was tired of endless diets that worked for a short period but couldn’t provide a long term solution for healthy living And as the result of that I returned back to my weight problem every time. I needed a life solution not a temporary diet for losing weight.

I got my personal diet, which I never had before. You explained to me how portion size and food combinations work together. But  most important, I got DIRECTION to a healthy life. I followed the diet you created for me and started to visit the gym every day. I got a great positive energy from our meetings.

I would recommend working with you to everybody who wants to stay healthy and in the best possible shape for the rest of the life. The best regards – Mila.
