Monsey Resident Zvi Richman Improves Overall Health and Achieves Weight-Loss Success with Help of ShopRite of Tallman’s Registered Dietitian
Richman Credits Weekly Nutrition Counseling Meetings with Dietitian as Key to Success

Tallman, N.Y., April 13, 2017 – Last fall, Zvi Richman knew that the time had come to get serious about losing weight and lowering his A1C levels. With that in mind, the 67-year-old Monsey, N.Y. resident walked into Inserra Supermarkets’ ShopRite of Tallman for an impromptu nutrition counseling session with Johna Mailolli, R.D., the store’s registered dietitian. Since that initial meeting with Mailolli, Richman has significantly improved his AIC levels and dropped more than 20 pounds. He continues to meet with Mailolli on a weekly basis.

Richman and Mailolli often walk through the aisles of ShopRite of Tallman, reviewing nutrition labels and discussing healthy food choices. They also talk through upcoming parties and events, where high-fat foods and treats may be in abundance, and address how Richman can easily avoid over-indulging.

“It’s not a struggle for me anymore,” said Richman, who follows a strict Kosher diet.  “Johna is very respectful of my diet and helps me to find proper substitutes.”

Inserra Supermarkets’ registered dietitians are a key element of the company’s free health and wellness programming for its customers. Under the direction of Lindsey Inserra, vice president of marketing and corporate retail health and wellness, the dietitians serve as wellness resources for customers as they are shopping, answering all of their nutrition-related questions. The dietitians also provide free one-on-one nutrition counseling, such as Mailolli does with Richman.

“From the very beginning, Zvi was extremely motivated to lose weight and lower his AIC levels,” said Mailolli, who has extensive experience working with individuals on nutrition-related health conditions. “He has remained focused on those goals even when he hits short-term, weight-loss plateaus. I couldn’t be more pleased with his continued success.”

A “Brilliant” Food Plan

Before Richman began meeting with Mailolli at ShopRite of Tallman, he had followed a weight-loss regime of shakes and supplements from time to time. “Zvi had lost some weight, but knew that the shakes and supplements were not a long-term solution for healthy living,” said Mailolli.

“It’s just the opposite with Johna’s eating plan for me, and I have everything to win by staying on it,” noted Richman. “I eat three regular meals with small snacks in between, focusing on high-protein items and whole grains. It’s brilliant. I know I will follow it for years to come.”

With Mailolli’s counseling, Richman also is walking at least 20 minutes each weekday. During the weekends, he walks for closer to 90 minutes a day, often enjoying after-dinner walks.

Richman also credits his wife’s support as an essential component of his success. “My wife has always been disciplined in terms of eating healthy foods and controlling portion sizes too,” he added. “She is very supportive of me and makes delicious meals for us, which often include tasty starch-free dishes, such as broccoli pie, that help in making the diet so workable. In addition to one-on-one nutrition counseling, Inserra Supermarkets’ registered dietitians lead an array of free store-based nutrition and wellness events each month, including healthy product samplings, recipe demonstrations, weight management programs, in-store health screenings and much more. The dietitians also work in the local communities they serve, often partnering with hospitals, schools and nonprofits to conduct free workshops and seminars.
