Healthy Transformation Contest

 

Are you ready to begin the rest of your life as the happy and healthy person you are meant to be? Well, I have just the challenge for you!

From now until March 1st we are all faced with some serious food-central BBQ’s and holidays that can still be awesome with “healthified” food, but temptation is something that would get the best of me years ago. But now that I plan ahead, I am ready and excited about celebrations rather than worrying about blowing my diet.

So my challenge for you is to stick to the “healthified” keto lifestyle for the next 6 months.

This contest is not just about weight loss. Here are some awesome ones we have received in the past:

1. A photo of your belly/baby if you were struggling with fertility and are now pregnant.

2. A photo of the prescription medications you are now off of due to the keto diet.

3. A photo of you running a race after years of dealing with pain.

4. A photo of you knitting a scarf after beating rheumatoid arthritis.

5. A photo of you enjoying an activity you did in the past but due to depression or low motivation, you stopped but now enjoy it again!

6. A photo of skin rashes gone with the keto diet and proper supplements.

7. A photo of your whole family benefiting from the keto lifestyle. The last family sent photos of their little boy who beat cancer!

8. Your child focusing in school.

Anything you want to use as your photo testimonial will work. This is YOUR transformation!

On March 1st, I will post the top transformations with their testimony and YOU get to vote for the best transformation! The winner will receive a Stand Mixer as well as other awesome prizes in a large gift box!

Some awesome prizes include:

1. This STAUB 4 piece set retails for $871!!! Click HERE to find Staub on Facebook.

  • I am really excited to make my transformation! I’ll certainly also blog about it 🙂

    Mighty thanks, Maria.

  • Stephanie says:

    I started my journey 7 weeks ago – but I’m in! I had set my goal to October to see what “happens” – I’m finding it easier and easier to make “healthified” choices and feeling great. I’ll extend my personal challenge to your suggested 6 months. Thanks Maria!

  • Jenny says:

    Thanks, Maria. I was actually planning this exact thing starting today. I need to lose more than 150 pounds and I want to go home for Christmas this year. My last plane ride was MISERABLE and I really want to fit better in the seat and surprise my family at my progress. I just hope I can keep my motivation up….I have a lot of goals that hinge on loosing all this weight and getting my life back. Overcoming Hashimoto’s, HS and rashes….this is the only thing that seems to be working so far. I am hoping to start my own blog to journal my progress…..

  • Jolene says:

    Count me in, Maria!! Joined LeeAnn from Cut the Wheat, Ditch the Sugar in her 30 til Thanksgiving facebook group and looking forward to how I feel and look by New Year’s! 🙂

  • Ruth Robbins says:

    I am excited about this! I am writing in my journal daily. The title of the journal is “Remaking Ruth.” So this contest goes with all I am planning for the year? Thank you for all you do.

    • cemmerich says:

      You can just send us your results (how your feel, before after photos, etc) in 3-5 months and we will enter you. 🙂

  • MD. B says:

    A before and after photo book would be awesome!

  • Kimberly Robinson says:

    Oh, it’s on. I was just writing up some short, medium and long term goals for the coming months. This is just the thing to kick it off.

  • Sue says:

    I’m in, I’m also hoping to bring some others that are concerned about their weight and health into this way of eating. I have to be the role model and leader. I have 50 pounds to lose, I’ve never been at the weight I’m trying to get to. Speed=(mass)(acceleration). I want to be faster, the weight has to come off.

  • claire says:

    well guess I just have to do this
    ………challenge accepted Maria!
    where to start?… for me to get rid of all inflammation in my legs would be great.
    been wheat free 2 years now……….I’m sure there’s lots for me to learn.

  • Christie says:

    WOOT WOOT!!!!!

  • Danielle says:

    I’m in! I need to do this. Love all your recipes, can’t wait to see the results.

  • Steph H says:

    Oh it!s on? Live the challenge n love you Maria!!

  • Sherree Sharron says:

    Couldn’t be better timing!!! I am all in and excited to take this weight loss journey with all of you! I would like to lose about 50 lbs and am starting right NOW!!!!!

  • Janet t says:

    I’m in .. hopefully it will be a pic sitting in my kayak…

  • Janet t says:

    hi maria, are you online video classes the updated info from your keto adapted book…? thanks so much…

  • Patty says:

    I’m in! Last year I turned 50 and had met my weight loss goal eating the “Maria way”. Now my goal is to lose those “extra” pounds lingering around my mid-section and to define and tone my still jiggly body so that I will wear shorts (for the first time since 2005) on a family cruise in April 2016 following the keto-adapted way.

  • Rebecca Lopez says:

    I’ve been kicking around the idea and this challenge sounds like the perfect reason to try…how do I enter the challenge? I’ve got nothing to lose but weight and hopefully rebalance my hormones and kick my postpartum anxiety.

  • Chelsea says:

    This is awesome!! I have had lots of health issues since I was young, and can’t wait to see what the keto adapted lifestyle does for me and my family!!

  • DawnS says:

    I was actually in search of something to help me make some positive changes and I stumbled upon your website. I am so ready for this….lets do this!!

  • Veronica says:

    This is very encouraging! I love how you motivate people to stay healthy. My goal is not only to lose weight but to rid of this Type 2 Diabetes… my fasting sugar went from 185/190 last month to 115/110 this week… I am hoping to be off my medications soon… Thanks for your enthusiasm about a truly healthy lifestyle… it’s kind of contagious.

  • Tracey says:

    Hi Maria, I have been lingering around your blog and reading and gathering all this fantastic info. I am interested in getting started but am hesitant as I have listened to podcasts and read that people with low thyroid and adrenal fatigue should not do a low carb diet. I have been going to an alternative physician and had my T3 and T4 levels checked and my thyroid is low. I had a blood cortisol test and my morning cortisol did not move (after the injection). I was on hydrocortisone pills for the adrenals but after 5 months, started retaining water. I have weaned myself of that and am just taking naturethroid thyroid meds for the thyroid and taking some herbal supplements for the adrenal fatigue. I have been on every diet you can name and I am tired of the low energy, feeling run down feeling I have had! I tried low carb in the past and I never lose any weight. I would love to jump on board with this challenge but I need to know will the Keto diet be a good diet for me? If so, what book do you suggest I purchase to get started? I wanna be a winner of these great prizes but most importantly, I wanna feel like a winner at this epic battle 🙂 Would love to hear from you!

  • Amanda Reed says:

    Does this count for anyone who is trying to live a keto style, or do we need to follow your particular plan? 🙂

  • Dee says:

    Hi Maria,

    I really hope you can offer some advice. I’ve been trying to follow your WOE for the last month. I’ve also followed your recommendations per Keto Adapted for supplements but for the last week, I’ve been having insomnia/interrupted sleeping. I managed 2 hours last night. Would you be able to suggest if I’m missing something in the supplements below?

    Lycine – 1g, Leucine 1.5g, ALA 500mg, Glutamine 6g, magnessium 3g, carnitine 3g, probiotics (20 mill). I also take a daily multivitamin and fish oils. I’m taking lots of celtic salt too!

    Any advice is much appreciated, as always.

  • Dee says:

    I forgot to mention, before this, I was sleeping really well on the keto diet. A good 8 hours uninterrupted sleep and really enjoying my new lifestyle. Its only this last week, I’m feeling rather out of sorts 🙁

    • cemmerich says:

      Are both diet and supplements new?

      • Dee says:

        Thanks so much for coming back to me. Diet been about a month already but I started ALA, Leucine, lysine only in the AM this week. Irregular sleep started a few days before new supplements started but I’ve also started experiencing loose stools (sorry!!) this week which I think might be the new supplements?

        • cemmerich says:

          It could be something called the healing crisis where things get worse before they get better as your body detoxes and heals. Maybe stick with it another couple weeks and see if things improve. 🙂

  • Merry says:

    Is it too late to join? I somehow missed this!

  • Barb says:

    I am having trouble finding a “before” picture….I used to hide from the camera! LOL! After losing 70 lbs, I am no longer hiding!!!

  • Becky says:

    Last night I had an Arbonne party at my house. The big change is not what the party was for But that I Had A Party at my house. The last few years I’ve been so depressed and in pain that I have shut myself off from other people. All of a sudden I heard myself volunteer to gather People together in My house and for Me to be the hostess! I was shocked. But I worked away at the project and ended up having So Much Fun that I forgot to take a picture for your blog. Hmmm, maybe I should have another party?? Thank you Maria and Craig for helping me be a real person again!
