Testimonials

  • I lost 57 pounds!

    In the 7 months that I have been working with Martha I have lost 57 pounds, and all blood test metrics have improved. This would not have happened without her knowledgeable advice and enthusiastic encouragement. I was never able to lose weight until I started working with Martha; her support has been instrumental to my success.

  • Dear Martha: It has been three years since we met you and I just wanted to express my thanks for the wonderful impact you had on my husband and I. Not only as a professional but as a person of integrity and class. Although I remember everything you told me, I have practiced most of your ideas I am still aware of the other changes you wanted me to do. I thank you as I accomplished exactly what I wanted to when I made the appointment to see you. I feel wonderful. Stay well and enjoy life.

  • After being told I had pre-diabetes, I started my health/wellness/weight loss project on my own but quickly discovered I would need help. Navigating a low carb life style can be daunting, but with Martha watching my back it soon became easier to accomplish. She is kind, patient and knowledgeable to say the least. After several phone sessions, I lost 36 lbs in 8 months, my blood pressure and sugar numbers are now normal and I feel great. Seek out Martha for help, you can win this war on obesity and pre-diabetes if you stick with her.

  • I lost 30 pounds in 8 months on your plan. And even better, my HBA1c went from 7.5 to the normal range! I avoided staying off medication which was of my major goals. You made it easy by keeping in the foods I like to eat. No diet or gimmicks. I have more energy than before yet as just as strong when I weight train. Thank you!

  • I want to thank you for changing my life.The eating plan you gave me 3 months ago was so easy to follow for a New York lifestyle, and totally practical for someone, like me, on the move. I hit my target of losing 20 lbs in 3 months. This is a new way of eating. My A1C and Glucose are now normal, and I plan to keep it that way. You have made, what seemed a very difficult project, a real pleasure. Good-by to snacks, hello to losing 3 1/2 ” on my waist, and over one size in trousers. From a Tight 38 – To loose 36.I have not been this weight in over 25 years. Thank you!

  • Martha literally changed my life! For the first time in twenty years I was IBS symptom free all thanks to the nutritional program she made for me. Martha diagnosed my issues and made the perfect program for me. She is smart, thoughtful and caring towards her patients.

  • I just wanted to let you know that after meeting with you my life has had a drastic turn for the better: after following your diet plan, I have been feeling more energized, less bloated, and yes, my digestive system seems to be regulated!

    Earlene C
  • With your guidance and expertise we have changed the way our entire family eats. My husband’s cholesterol went way down and his LDL dropped significantly. He has lost weight and looks fantastic (might I even say younger). Eating healthy does not mean not eating or not enjoying, it's all about knowing what to eat and what to look out for. Thank you for making us all healthier!

    Heather S
  • I lost 6.5 lbs (to 193), my cholesterol is down from 226 to 195 and the "bad" cholesterol is down from 133 to 117. Thanks so much for your advice and helping me stay off meds.

    Ken Pasquale
  • With your recommendations my cholesterol went from 279 to 201 in three months. LDL is down as well. Thank you for putting me back on course.

  • I came to you for help with lowering my triglycerides and you gave me a ton of helpful information. That was three months ago and I just had my blood drawn and tested again today, and my triglycerides dropped 50 points! My doctor says that I am no longer in a risky zone, and won’t have to take medication. This is directly a result of your help, and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate it.

    Kevin C.
  • I follow your great blog. Love it! I got on "the program" and lost 18 lbs ...Gym several times a week … Eating well. .. Basically, you changed my life in an hour!

    Melissa E.
  • I have been faithfully following the diet that you had planned for me. My starting weight was 140 lbs. I am now down to 118 lbs. I am really pleased that my blood sugar and cholesterol numbers and well within the normal range. I have been begging and searching for just the right kind of diet or proper food since my first diagnosis with high cholesterol back in the late 1980’s and I was finally put in touch with you. I can’t tell you how many people have asked me how I have lost the weight – they want to know my secret!!!!!!!

    Charlotte S
  • Martha will not lose the weight for you, but she is a great coach and knowledgeable expert in her field. My personal experience of losing fifty pounds and keeping it off made my seventieth birthday much sweeter that it would otherwise have been. I expect to continue consulting for another year to firmly establish my healthy lifestyle.

  • My biggest challenges are the temptations of drinking and eating because I am out so much. When I started to see Martha on a weekly basis she did not teach me how to diet, but how to change my lifestyle. Since I have worked with Martha I have lost approximately 30 pounds. She has been the most amazing motivator and counselor.

    Sari C
  • Martha makes dieting manageable and realistic.I felt totally supported by her generous and caring attitude and she never made me feel ashamed of my 'slip-ups'. And, for the first time ever, I was able to lose weight at a slow and steady pace without feeling deprived.

  • Martha was marvelous when she participated as an expert on the Nutrition & Heart Health panel at Food as Medicine panel at Hunter College in New York City, for which I was the moderator. It is always great when I have the good fortune to work with one of my fellow registered dietitians like Martha, who has a strong clinical background, many years of counseling experience and is evidence based.

PCOS Testimonials

  • Martha has helped many of my PCOS patients

    I have been referring my patients with PCOS to Martha for over 15 years. Her expertise in diet for PCOS has helped many of my patients with their symptoms as well as with weight loss. She truly understands the nutritional needs of women with PCOS.

    Geoffrey Redmond, MD • hormonehelpny.com
  • I have PCOS and attributed that to being overweight. I began working with Martha and I lost 40 lbs in 8 months. I went from a size 12 to a size 4. I learned how to lose weight as well as how to maintain it.

    Lise C., Physical Therapist
  • I have been referring my patients with PCOS to Martha McKittrick, RD, CDE for the past 12 years. They are always pleased with her professional guidance and empathetic demeanor. Her eating plans have promoted weight loss in many of my patients. Since losing even 5-10% of body weight leads to metabolic changes that alter the progressive changes of the metabolic syndrome and the effects of excessive insulin, her outline of treatment has helped reduce the impact of excessive weight in this syndrome.

    Dr. Walter Futterweit
  • You really helped me make sense of all the confusing nutrition information on PCOS I came across. With the help of your practical plan, I lost 15 pounds in 3 months and see an improvement in my cycles, mood and carb cravings. This new way of eating is really helping me.

    Suzanne F.
  • I am still following your PCOS-friendly food plan and got pregnant naturally!!! (we had stopped fertility treatments). I would never have believed that it was possible since I don’t ovulate on my own but I believe that it was to your credit that it was able to happen. I could never thank you enough!! I’ve lost a total of 35 pounds (this was done with one initial session and one f/u).

  • I’m listening to your PCOS presentation webinar. You are such a great speaker. You present the information simply which makes it so much easier to understand –yet still appropriate for the audience. This was such a helpful and practical presentation. Thank you so much.

  • Martha has appeared on my SiriusXM Doctor Radio show several times talking about nutrition for PCOS. Martha is a pro with the caller’s and their probing questions on PCOS, offering helpful advice and expert, clinical guidance.

    Samantha Heller MSRD, Host, SiriusXM Radio
  • The audience was treated to an excellent presentation with a perfect balance between summarizing the research on treatment, and just how to incorporate the latest research into the nutritional care of women with PCOS. She clearly knows how to meet women where they’re at with PCOS to find ways they can improve their health and well-being using dietary and physical activity lifestyle changes that stick. We all left with ideas we could put into practice tomorrow, and for that I am so grateful!
