BLOG ADVERTISEMENTS

I decided to stop the advertisements on my blog. We thought it would be a helpful revenue (and it was) but I was unable to control what companies advertised. There ended up being lots of diet products I don’t approve of. So we have taken down the ads.

I know many of you all look to me for nutritional advise so I just can’t justify having that content on my site. Thank you all for your love and support and keep using my astore and affiliate links (on right side of my blog under “stock your pantry”) Or you can click HERE.

Your support is greatly appreciated!;) There are some great Mother Day gift ideas in there!

Testimonies of the Day

30 Day Accelerated Testimony: “Dear Craig & Maria, I have been on your 30 day accelerated plan for 1 week and I am thrilled with the results!!!! I have lost between 6-7 pounds in 1 week! This NEVER has happened before, and Craig is right, I am not hungry or having cravings as long as I stick to the plan.

I didn’t believe it at first, but I can honestly say now that this ‘way of eating’ does work. I have avoided all dairy and don’t really miss it at this point. I feel better and am experiencing higher energy levels. I noticed that when I ate a little more than the plan suggests or when I didn’t exercise or get all my water in, I gained. I just have to make sure to follow the plan as close as I can now and hope for more shedding of pounds.

I made your chili recipe last night and both my husband & I absolutely loved it! ( He said he didn’t even miss all the beans because it was so flavorful and tasty! ) Thank you both for your great advice and meal plans! Danielle”

Photo Testimony: “Maria I just have to tell you that because of my success I’m singing your praises and people are beginning to listen! I’m having a Keto Maria Taste Testing Party at my home tomorrow evening. It will be small samples of everything Maria! I’m going to have notecards attached to each meal explaining intake percentages. I hope this leads more people to you! I will send you pictures! Thanks again and here’s another photo comparison of me before keto and now with keto!” – Dawn

Coleslaw

The best coleslaw I ever had was in Maui Hawaii at the Paia Fish Market while we were there for our honeymoon which was over 12 years ago and my diet was much different then! I even put ketchup on it, man… my diet is so different now! I’m guessing that the coleslaw was filled with vegetable oils and sugar but I still remember it being so tasty. So this is my attempt at “healthifying” it!

2013_12_291-001

This little fish market was such a gem. We decided to eat at 2pm in the afternoon since we were warned about how busy it gets and we still had to wait for a table to eat. The tables were just picnic tables in the middle of the room and you would sit next to other vacationers and locals while you listened to everyone moan in the “foodgazm” they were experiencing. It was fun visiting with strangers finding out what activities we should try while we were in paradise.

After our lunch, we walked across the street to watch wind surfers enjoying the sun. I think I would have a hard time going to work in such a beautiful place. I would be taking a lot of “sick days!”

 Another Great Testimony

“Maria, I just have to tell you that it took about three weeks on your supplement plan, but yesterday I woke up and I just felt good, it’s working. Best investment I’ve ever made for myself. I spent 1 1/2 years trying to study this and find answers on my own. I feel like I can exhale a bit now, finally, got the answers I needed. Now I actually feel like focusing on the keto meals, I have more mental clarity . I’ve gone from 5 to 6 hours sleep up to 7 and 8 and I am ready to go to bed when I go, no more tossing and turning.” -Debra

    I am considering trying the diet plan , but when i read the blog attached to the corn beef and hash meal, it alarmed be regarding insulin resistance. I do have a fatty liver and feel that I also have insulin resistance, but i am not diabetic. When i lose the weight, my fatty liver improves drastically. What is your advice???

    • cemmerich April 28, 2014 at 6:51 pm / Reply

      I think you misinterpreted what is being said. What is happening is a good thing. Your muscles are preferring the ketones and resist the glucose. What is more important is that your A1C will go down dramatically with this lifestyle and that is your real indicator of inflammation and metabolic syndrome.

    Sorry to see you miss out on revenue but so very pleased that you have the integrity to not run the ads since you cannot choose which ones run. It is so very distracting to go to a blog for health information when ads are running that contradict the bloggers’ message. Thank you! I will continue to support your site in every way I can. You are very much appreciated (and relied on for great information).

      I would be careful with any breads not made from scratch. I haven’t seen one yet that didn’t have ingredients I don’t like. They have a few other products are good, but in general, I would consider their products as good for maintenance or when you are in a pinch. ;)

    Hi Maria, Unfortunately I was unable to be present during your live broadcast this past weekend, but I have watched the recording! I’m so inspired!!! The knowledge you have of a wonderful lifestyle we can all implement in our own lives is out of this world, great!!! I’m preparing my mind for the change…to follow you. I want to have arms like yours…you look amazing! In 2009, I competed in two figure fitness competitions and have been wanting to compete again…still in my plans, especially this year, when I turn 40. My setbacks were lack of definition in my arms. I have been working to obtain those toned arms since, but I have not been successful :-( Perhaps if I follow the “Maria way” I may find my answer!!

    Last night, I made your Beef Broccoli in my new slow cooker…I LOVED it, so did the boyfriend! Tonight, I will be making this wonderful looking cole slaw AND I will also make your homemade mayonnaise!! I’m so looking forward to it. I’ll let you know how it all turns out.

    I just purchased your Keto-Adapted book…Sshh…don’t tell…I have been reading bits and pieces at work…I can’t put it down :) I think this lifestyle will do me much needed benefit in my health. I suffer from chronic constipation (I have not been diagnosed, as I refuse to see any MD), I sometimes don’t go #2 for 4-5 days or more sometime, but I still get/feel hungry…I hate it!!! I need serious help…I did read some of the suggested supplements you recommend, i.e. probiotics (which I have), magnesium and Vitamin C…I’ll be trying that too!

    OK, I’ll stop my rambling. I know I need to schedule a consult with you as I don’t want to just try to heal myself and be all over the place…I need to have a plan.

    new to LCHF diet and LOVING your books. I am allergic to almonds so can’t use almond flour. I am wondering if you have a standard substitution measurement for coconut flour to almonds, i.e. 1cup almond flour +1 egg = 1/3cup coconut flour + 3eggs. would really like to make the pie crust in your savoury cookbook. Also love to have a recipe for croissants…. [bagel recipe is awesome :-) ; lemon poppy seed muffins VERY popular in my house! ]

    Forgot to say, THANK YOU for the decision re: advertising. I can only imagine how frustrating that must have been for you to be on your site and see sugar-wheat-gluten-chemical filled products advertised! A couple times I saw ads, kind of mixed in with things like your Amazon store link, and I had to double take,…. and then realize you weren’t promoting that product. Good call… the monetary impact will, I feel sure, be replaced by sales from people who appreciate your principled stand. Kudos!

    loved the recipe!! I had to tweak b/c I didn’t have everything. -I used Maria’s baconaise mayo & only had 25% of what recipe called for. So, I only did 1/4 of the recipe.. I kept the bacon & onions the same…. added a bit too much cabbage (but still so good, just not as creamy)… & had no tomatoes, so I used orange bell pepper… Sprinkled 1/4 tsp of Celtic Sea salt.

    A recent IgG Elisa shows me reacting to any kind of nuts, sunflower, sesame and coconut – all good sources of fat. I also react to some proteins, greens, gluten and yeast and some spices. I know if I eat coconut flakes I get instant reflux and heartburn, but that doesn’t seem to happen with coconut oil. Is there a different composition. Could I eat coconut oil, coconut aminos, coconut milk? I have been restricting myself to ghee but it doesn’t work well in many recipes as well as I do not particularly like the taste and texture. If no on the coconut oil, what could I substitute.

  • Valerie Pergolizzi May 7, 2014 at 11:26 pm / Reply

    Great cole slaw recipe! I only needed 1/2 head of cabbage for five cups, so after mixing the “mayo” I started adding it slowly and only used 1/2 the mayo recipe, so I saved it for the other 1/2 head of cabbage!

  • Anna May 9, 2014 at 11:51 pm / Reply

    This was delicious. I added one red pepper to the recipe since those are my favorite! Added about 6 net carbs to the whole recipe. Even my husband like this one. One serving size was a whole meal for me. Great summer recipe. I love things you can eat cold.

    Hi Maria. I have been trying to follow a keto diet for about a month now. I have only lost 5 lbs. so far. Everywhere I look the macros are different. Currently Im at about 18g (5%) carbs, 140g (40%) protein and 86g (55%) fat. Im not losing any weight and am frustrated. what am I doing wrong? Are these macros correct? I am 5ft 6in tall and weight 145 lbs. I do not drink and my exercise at the moment is walking 30 minutes most days. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for all you do, Maria!

    • cemmerich July 21, 2014 at 9:43 pm / Reply

      If those are total carbs (not net) that is good. But you are getting way too much protein and not enough fat. Try to get 70-80% fat and keep protein in the 50-75 grams a day range. I talk about it in detail in my book Keto-Adapted. :)

          I always count total carbs. I have seen many clients get kicked out of ketosis with too much fiber. :)

I love the exercises you recommended in the meal plan too which are doable and I hope to implement that also in the next few weeks as soon as I learn how to make that bread. thank you Maria. you do a good job!

    I made this and it was wonderful… ty Maria. I plugged all the ingredients into 3 different recipe builder and the macro’s don’t come close to yours. Your recipe ingredients doesn’t list the 1/4 cup of bacon fat that goes into the sauce, it is just mentioned to add in the instructions… do you suppose this got missed when you plugged in the 3’s?

    Happy Holidays!

      Hmm, this has bugged me all night lol. I see what I did wrong with the bacon. I added the bacon and then the bacon fat as two separate ingredients… so I fixed that but I still can’t get to your numbers. No biggie, as long as I log exactly what I used (as recipe indicated) I will go by the numbers I get. Sorry to hash this out here. :)

      • Maria Emmerich December 5, 2014 at 2:50 pm / Reply
