Greetings! I’m Tony Vassallo, founder of MODA Nutrition Inc. and I’m a Man on a Nutrition Mission™.
My mission is to help individuals achieve a healthy weight for life without dieting or depriving.
I began my life-changing journey of losing 130 pounds in early 2010.
At age 37 I was classified as morbidly obese, weighing over 300 pounds and with a waist of 50″. I detested the reflection I saw in the mirror to the point that I removed all full-length mirrors from my home. I cringed when I was referred to as a “big guy”. My obesity caused me to be treated as a second-class citizen.
It was this passion for helping others that persuaded me to leave a 15-year career in the IT industry.
Today Tony is the founder of MODA Nutrition Inc. and facilitates a weekly weight loss support group in Toronto. He is the author of Weight Loss Never Tasted So Good, a cookbook of recipes he used during his weight loss journey and still uses today. Tony is the Executive Producer of Follow Me a documentary exploring the journeys individuals who have each successfully sustained their weight loss for 5 years or more. The film is scheduled for release in 2018.
The MODA Mission: To help anyone struggling with their weight to eat and think there way to a healthy weight for life.
MODA Group Support: A group of like-minded individuals who share the common interest of achieving a healthy body weight for life. We meet every Saturday morning in the west end of Toronto. Our weekly workshop provides accountability, education, emotional support, and the inspiration needed to achieve our goals. Each workshop is geared towards planning, strategizing, celebrating successes and accountability with a weekly weigh in. Workshops are open to men and woman providing an easy-going, friendly environment.
