WIN Organic Hot dogs

July 23rd is National Hot Dog Day! My kids LOVE that I celebrate food holidays and today is extra special because we love TWR organic hot dogs!

I also just want to take a moment to say “Hi!” And introduce myself to all of you!

My before photo is when I first started my ketogenic diet. I was picked on and called “Thunder Thighs” when I was a teenager and now I get fit-shamed. I feel that there’s too much judgement about sizes and shapes. We are all on a path to find health and happiness.

When I was 16, I went to my doctor and I was told I had PCOS and walked away with a prescription to an acid blocker and an antidepressant — not the answer I was looking for. That same week, my dog was losing patches of her hair. “The veterinarian asked, ‘What are you feeding her?’ It was like a light-bulb went off for me. I went home and immediately changed my own diet and it changed my life.

I suffered from PCOS and weight loss took awhile to happen but I felt so good I kept with it. I also made the mistake of eating really good during the week but cheating on the weekends. I wasn’t terrible, but a glass of wine, a few French fries held me back from totally healing.

My sugar addiction started at a young age and it was a hard addiction to break. I changed my mindset and started thinking positive and discovered all of these delicious Keto foods and recipes of things I thought were unhealthy like bacon or Keto ice cream. Instead of focusing on the foods I couldn’t I have I focused on delicious foods I could have AND I focused on how AMAZING I started feeling!

I now have endless energy, my IBS is gone, acid reflux gone, I am no longer depressed and I feel amazing! I may look scrawny but I am strong!

The Ketogenic diet has helped heal so many aspects of my life! I love hearing testimonies from others on how they are no longer on medication, no longer depressed, they can now play with their kids or grandchildren… the testimonies are endless!

Let FOOD be thy medicine and be proud of your body! Eating keto isn’t a diet for my family. It is a lifestyle. I love food and I will always love food, but more so, I love the way I feel eating like this! That is why I love creating really delicious recipes that make you love this way of eating. I want you to be able to do this 100 percent!

Having tasty and easy keto food is also important to success! Since it is summer and camping season, Teton Waters Ranch (TWR grass fed beef company) and I paired up to host a giveaway of their organic hot dogs!

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY

“I just finished my 3rd round of The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse and couldn’t be happier!

I recently went back into my records from the end of Summer 2014 and compared where I was then versus now. I had been busting my tail with daily and sometimes double daily workouts as well as eating a very restrictive diet. I did this for more than 6 months until I hit total burnout mode and stopped it all. What amazes me most is the fact that even with all of that effort for 6 months, I am smaller now with only 3 months of effort in the kitchen!!! I don’t feel deprived or restricted with how I’m eating and I workout very little (at the moment). I’m also not popping Advil like candy like I used to!!! I can honestly say that I see myself doing this for life! No more yo-yo dieting, hardcore workouts or deprivation!!!

Thank you Maria Wojcik Emmerich and Craig Emmerich for all you do to make this WOL functional for everyone!!! It’s amazing to think how far I’ve come in such a short time — I’ve gone from a total skeptic to a Ketovangelist!!! <3”

    Keto has completely changed my life! It helped me lose and keep off 80 pounds in a healthy way, regain mental clarity and emotional health, and has helped me to stay off of the antidepressants and anti anxiety medications my doctors told me I would have to take for the rest of my life! I love telling people about how keto has given me health and freedom I didn’t know I could experience and helping lead other to keto as well.

  • Kelly B says:

    The keto lifestyle has helped my husband and I achieve our body goals. We have always been skinny but have been determined to become more healthy and gain some muscle mass. Learning to eat right with Keto has helped both of us achieve this!! Thank you Maria for you tastey cookbooks and amazing wealth of information.

    I like your you-tube videos a lot . That is what we need good information.

  • Sheri Knauer says:

    Ive been keto almost 2 years and it has helped me lose the extra weight I always carried around and that kept creeping up year after year despite exercising 4-5 times a week and eating what I thought was a healthy diet. I also had hungry and hypoglycemic episodes so I always had to carry around food just in case. I no longer experience either of those 2 things. My mother and grandmother both had diabetes so I was surely heading down that road as well, but no more! I have 2 young daughters so now I am able to teach them about the benefits of keto.

  • I have been on every diet you can think of since I was in 3rd grade. I have always struggled with my weight and any weight I would lose would come right back because it was never a lifestyle change. I have now been following the keto way of living for 2 1/2 months and I feel great. I have lost right at 17 pounds, I never feel bloated or miserable and the best part is I have completely embraced this way of life. I am so excited to get the weight off and keep it off this time!

  • Barb says:

    I have finally lost the weight I always wanted to lose by employing a paleo diet which started with Whole 30. I have not wanted to go back to grains at all. I do, however, miss hot dogs since I grew up in Chicago. Unfortunately with all the nitrates and whatever else is in them, I have not had a hot dog for over 3 years. Thanks for creating this product that uses grass fed beef. A much better choice!

  • Penny says:

    I love Teton Waters Ranch Hot Dogs. Thanks for a chance to win.

  • Chris Wynter says:

    Scrawny? Oh no-no-no-no-no. Maria, you look extraordinarily healthy (and delicious, if I may be so bold! lol).

  • Kelly B says:

    The keto lifestyle has helped my husband and I achieve our fitness goals. We didn’t start keto to lose weight but to gain muscle and live a healthier lifestyle. We have been loving every minute of it.

  • ARLENE BOWERS says:

    Being on Keto has really helped keep my blood sugars under control. My doctor is extremelt happy. Not to mention my weight is down to 138.

  • Debbie says:

    I look forward to trying the TWR organic hotdogs. Thank you for bringing them to my attention.

  • V Davey says:

    Eating Keto is helping lower blood sugar levels.

  • Kathi says:

    Eating this way has cured my IBS! Also acid reflux and hemorrhoids! I still struggle a bit with being 100%, but I’m getting there!!

  • The keto diet is fir sure a lifestyle change. Looking at all the creative recipes out there that are keto. It is an adventure and a road that I want to travel for a healthier lifestyle!

  • Claire Moniz says:

    Oh never had those would love to try them.

  • Claire Moniz says:

    Keto has helped everyone in the house get more healthy,better blood work etc.

  • Lauren Sanderson says:

    Eating more fruits and veggies has helped my toddler identical twins and I in every way. I need less sleep (suffered a traumatic brain injury) and have fewer headaches, and I have lost about 25lbs. One of my boys was prescribed Miralax for his love of holding his poo, eating healthier and prebiotics have made it to where we no longer need to rub essential oils on him or force prune juice.

  • Leberta says:

    Keto has helped me with menopause and my gut disbyosis

  • gjeanieg says:

    We love the keto way of eating! The three of us have lost over 75 pounds, but even better than that, as someone mentioned, is that we are healthier and our blood work shows it! Our energy levels are through the roof. I love being able to chase my little grandson around, and there was a time when I was not sure I would be able to do that. 🙂

  • Marilyn says:

    Yay! Hot dogs and sauerkraut! Staying healthy with Keto.

  • Leigh Webster says:

    I feel So much better!!!

  • April says:

    This lifestyle has helped me learn about food more try new, things think different then what they tell us too do and has helped me believe in something again that is working and help other people in my life and at my job and seeing them happier And that it is helping them too! 🙂

  • Bobbie Sperry says:

    I stumbled upon the concepts behind lchf lifestyle through a documentary called “Fathead” in 2009. Since then, I’ve read more about this lifestyle. I am a physician by trade; the science made so much sense! I felt betrayed by a lot of what I had been taught through my years of medical training. Although I know that eating this way makes so much sense for overall health, I have just now, nearly 10 years later, started to apply this knowledge to my own behaviors. Carbs are hard to shake! I’ve convinced my patients to even adopt this diet, with amazing results. Looking forward to this journey; Maria and Craig, your website and resources have made planning and enacting this transition so much easier. Thank you for all you do!

  • It’s helped me immensely with my sleep and stable moods. 🙂

  • Therese Glaser says:

    I have been doing keto since I bought your book on April 9th from Brace Books& More. I started that very day. You had a talk and book signing April 14th and I went to listen to you. I’m the one who asked the question how did you learn about cold therapy. I have been sick all my life. As a baby in and out of the hospital s and the doctors never knew what was wrong with me. I had infections all the time since I was born. I had boils on my face. Never any answers. All I know is I’m always sick. I started eating healthy and I was still sick. I went Vegan and I was still sick. All year long I get sick. I have read all these books to try to help me. Forks Over Knives, Tox-Sick, The Autoimmune Solutions,Become a Wellness Champions, Walking up From MS, Live Raw,, The Engine 2 Diet, EatvRight 4 Your Type, Better Basics For Your Home, Essential Ouls and Aromatherapy! I started going to a Nathropathic dDoctor in Stillwater, Oklahoma at Aquarian Healing Arts Doctor Julia Fetter in May 2017 for help. So I have lots of health issues. Lots. She asked do I want to get better or just be diagnosed. I said I wanted to get better. Ishe tasted me and she did the gene testing, and hormone testing also. I’m missing the genes you get from your parents at birth. It causes me to have problems absorbing food and digesting food properly. I have a gene mutation s the MTHFR I Have thyroid disease. When your thyroid doesn’t work right nothing works right causing problems with your hormones too. I’m chemical sensitive too. I have food allergies and other allergies too. Makes life very difficult. I also went to a Young living Essential Ouls class and have started using the oils to help with my allergies. When the lady had me put my hand on the divice it scan me and started listing all my healthy problems. She looked at me and said wow you have a lot wrong with you. I said yes I do but I’m getting better. All I know is she has helped me a lot this year. She has been pleased with my progress! Well I started applying everything in your book additional to what she had me doing. Everyone has noticed how amazing I look! I look healthy and toned! I haven’t gotten sick either. It’s Chapter 12 A checklist for Acclerated Healing That has helped so much! I never heard of this before. Cold therayand activating brown fat. It has made a tremendous difference in my life! No doctor has shared this with me. What a difference it’s made! The fasting Chapter 9 Helped keep my sugar levels balanced. I’m doing the one meal a day. Work amazing for me!!! Chapter 5 Hormones made so much sense. Basically what my naturopathic doctor Julia has been helping with also.Chapter 6 on Modifications for Disease Yes I have so much wrong with me so this helped and made since. The cold Shower Therapy and drinking cold water having ice chips has made a big difference. Everyone has noticed and come to me asking what I’m doing. I’m sharing it on my Facebook and with everyone I meet! My brother in law looked at me and said to his son Look at your Aunt Therese’s guns! He told him he should start working out with me. Too funny and a big compliment from him. I feel amazing and better than I ever felt as a kid. I’m running, doing my Taebo everyday and so much more!!! I’m turning 51 in August and for once in my life I feel amazing!!! I have more energy than my 3 grown kids or my 5 grandchildren. Thank you so much! I have pictures too. if you want to see them! Thank you Craig and Maria Emmerich for your help and my Naturopathic Doctor Julia Fetter I’m doing so well now!

  • Carissa says:

    I’ve lost 30 pounds and I no longer get shaky from sugar crashes.

  • Bev Hunt says:

    6 week into my Keto journey and I’m down 25lbs. I’ve been a nurse for 40yrs and thought my constantly aching legs was job related plus being overweight. 1-1/2 week’s into Keto my legs didn’t hurt anymore, and have not ached since! I feel fantastic, and although I have a long way to go, I know I can do this because of great mentors and encouragers like Maria ❤️

  • Linda says:

    Have been following you and eating keto for a year. Lost 25 pounds and my A1C went from 5.9 down to 5.1 within the first three months. Will soon find out how much more it has dropped at the one year mark. I can’t thank you enough for all of your recommendations for good healthy alternatives to our so called indulgent foods. Being from Wisconsin I truly miss brats, and I can’t even remember the last time I had a hot dog giving them up because of there unhealthy ingredients. Looking forward to grilling up some dogs with sauerkraut. Thanks for yet another yummy product to try!

  • Stacy Samano says:

    I have been eating keto for 1 year. My hemoglobin A1c has dropped from 6.4 to 5.4. My HDL level has gone up and my triglycerides have come down. I have lost 25 pounds and have energy and feel great and love to share with others how they can get healthy eating real foods that taste

  • Therese Glaser says:

    I posted a long post earlier and I don’t see it?

  • Kandyce Edwards says:

    I’m new to Keto but I began this journey because two of my family members have been diagnosed with diabetes and I refused to let that be my future. When I read about Keto it resonated with me and I knew this was the way to go. Thank you Maria for all of the wonderful information and resources!!

  • Randa Sharpe says:

    Maria, you are an inspiration to so many. It’s too bad that people feel the need to shame you. Keep up the brilliant work and stay strong in adversity. Oh! Those hotdogs should be delicious!

  • Cherie Burton says:

    I started Keto on April 9th and have already gone off 3 medications and taking nothing for my fibromyalgia pain. I have a ways to goes but know if I following this way of Keto I will achieve my goal. Thank you Marie and Craig

  • Dana Kelley says:

    I have dropped #40 since last fall. This week I bought a size 4 pair of shorts ….WHAT?????

  • Dee Geary says:

    My Keto lifestyle has helped me to lower my A1c from 12.7 to 5.1 which impresses the heck out of my doctor. I am healthier & hopefully will live longer because of my Keto lifestyle. I adore hotdogs!

  • Samantha says:

    The ketogenic diet is an amazing life changing way to eat. I absolutely love how my mind and body feels being in a state of ketosis. Mental and physical energy i would never trade for a load of sugar and carbs! Those hot dogs definitely qualify for all the must haves for a quality meat… and hey now I know how to celebrate July 23 with my family! Hot dog!

  • Cathy says:

    For a few years now I have been playing around with the paleo eating plan. Never really lost any weight on it . But felt better. I am diabetic, high blood pressure, cholesterol issues and every thing that goes along with that bunch . I was at work and had chips and hot sauce and had the worst pain ever! I started analyzing what attacks me and looking for a better eating plan. So before I picked up any books . Started doing the keto plan. It’s taken me awhile to drop 20 and keep it off. Bought a few of Maria s’ books and highlighting the info I need . Now adding into my lifestyle. I can’t wait till my kitchen is finished and groceries in my house and will be good to go. Thank you so much.

  • Annette says:

    I’m new to the ketogenic diet, but so far it’s helped me get rid of hypoglycemia.

  • Heidi Gonderman says:

    Eating keto helped me lose weight and recover from chemotherapy after a breast cancer diagnosis. I have way more energy eating keto and feel great. Thank you Maria for all of your delicious recipes!

  • patricia says:

    I have been able to get off my heartburn medication!

  • Tif says:

    I ordered your book months ago and when I first read the statement about the dr. vs the vet, that completely changed my mindset! Thank you!

  • Gina says:

    Since starting a keto lifestyle not only have I lost weight but no longer need medicine for heartburn!

  • Carmen says:

    I have been off sugars of all kinds since Feb. 1, 2017, and completely Keto since April of 2017. I have lost and kept off 50#, no longer struggle with anxiety and related symptoms.

I truly believe this way of eating is the best for anyone and love sharing with people how they can improve their life.

  • Tracy says:

    4+ months on Keto. Feeling great. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Shawn Weisser says:

    Last year, my husband and I began the keto cleanse. We were doing great, hubs lost 35 and I lost 45. Then my older brother passed away and I had to drop everything and fly to CA from VA to deal with his estate, his wishes, and his ex-wife. They we had to go to MS for his funeral and I started a new job. Needless to say, my last summer was stressful and heartbreaking. Through it all; however,I was able to stay keto and my hormones kept balanced and I remained calm. Prior to keto, I would have fallen apart. We stay keto and plan to do the cleanse again this summer. Thanks Maria and Craig for all of your support and sharing your knowledge with us. We preach keto to friends and family and my father-in-law has lost about 50lbs since he began. Two of my coworkers are keto as well and we plan to keep supporting each other as we go. One has lost 22lbs since May and the other has lost 45 in the past year. Amazing!

  • Mary Ann says:

    I would love to try these !

  • Nikki Rawson says:

    I have barely started my journey. I ordered your book Keto and it is in route to me. I have been doing the Wilder Way and cannot wait to start the Keto journey!

  • Elizabeth says:

    Keto gives me so much energy and the confidence to do the things I love! It just lets you LIVE!

  • Diana Cote says:

    I am still not quite full Keto but it’s done wonders for my husband who has hypoglycemia and suffers from anxiety. It’s been helped him lots, he has always been skinny but this has actually helped him gain muscle and sleep better too.

  • Amanda says:

    My husband and I have been doing keto since November. He is down 100lbs! He is the healthiest he’s ever been. He no longer has sleep apnea. I was already a healthy body weight and was mostly in it to support my husband but in the process I have lost almost 20lbs. I no longer get headaches from all the sugar I used to eat and crave. Keto has changed our lives. We now have family members doing keto and in just over a month and a half they have lost a combined 70lbs!

  • Carly says:

    Keto has completely changed my life. One of the biggest reasons is that I have gone off all my anxiety and depression medication! That has been a huge win for me. I have been on medication for over 14 years! I am feeling better about myself and have a greater self love. A great bonus is losing over 25 lbs and being able to be active with my 2 year old. Now I am happy and feel like my son who was a Preemie is getting the nutrients he needs to thrive! He has also completely changed going from not talking and having trouble doing basic functions to talking up a storm and now over achieving doing functions that kids 2years older than him have a tough time doing!

  • Karynn says:

    I have been Keto since last Thanksgiving and have lost 36 pounds! I am at a weight that I distinctly remember saying just last fall that, even if I lost weight, I would NEVER weigh the high end of my “recommended” weight! Well, I hit that goal today! I thought I was eating healthy before, as I had been “sugar free” (or what I thought was sugar free, but still at fruits, honey and maple syrup), yeast free, gluten free for several years, but could never lose weight. I was eating I was eating tons of fruits and vegetables, but that’s obviously not what my body needed. Keto and IF have been a life-changer! I feel amazing and the weight loss is just a side benefit!!!

  • Claudia says:

    I can definitely say that Keto has helped me in all aspects of my life. Not only I have reversed my pre-diabetes, I do not take any meds anymore, I feel 100% amazing and full of energy but I also have seen a boost of confidence with my weight loss that my relationship with my spouse has gotten way better due to the happiness it has brought me. I am 100% grateful to my cousin Teresa who told me about it and gifted me Maria’s 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse book. I am not going to say it was easy at the beginning after a life full of misconceptions and bad decisions but It has been worth the journey, I am not done, I am still working on myself and making whoever wants to hear me aware of the benefits of going Keto. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart !

  • Carolsue says:

    If you’re pre-diabetic or have Type II diabetes, you should seriously consider a ketogenic diet. I was told I was pre-diabetic and found this diet helped me a lot and kept my pre-diabetes in check!

    Maria & Craig,,
    I could go over all the things that have improved in my life as a result of Keto, but you’ve already covered it all in your blog posts!

  • Rosemary says:

    Down over 90 lb in 15 months and feeling better every day!

  • Jenae Laxson says:

    A Ketogenic Diet has improved my life in so many ways other than just weight loss. When I was 15 I first went Paleo in an attempt to get rid of gastrointestinal upset and uncontrollable weight gain, no matter how much I exercised. I saw amazing results with the diet alone and I felt so much better. However, I ended up quitting out of peer pressure from other students and teachers. Good ol’ High School. Six months l;after when I turned 16 I resumed Paleo and was determined to stick with it and not let anyone else try and stop me. I ended up losing 20 pounds. I was happy and healthy and then I found Keto. The first Keto book I even laid eyes on was during a Costco run where I came across your book, “Quick and Easy Ketogenic Cooking.” I decided I had to get it and from then on I was obsessed. I immediately lost another 5 pounds and my Keto buddy, aka my mom, lost 30 pounds. Unfortunately, the day my mom put on size 14 jeans in 20 years was the day my grandpa, who we loved very much, decided to leave us. This was in October. It was extremely painful on both of us and we ended up gaining about 14 pounds each by eating a surplus of Keto food out of stress. After the respectable grieving period had passed, around January, we both decided we needed to get back on it. While the road to getting back to a healthy sweet free Ketogenic Diet was rough we did it and were able to get back down to our original weights and then some. My mom is now in “Wonderland.” Today we are about to complete a 7 day water fast. Our ketone levels are fantastic and we have soared through the fast. Although, we are starting to miss the taste of food. Due to our success we now promote the Ketogenic Diet whenever we can. And while the amount of devotees in our family is just me, my mom, and my cousin, who is our newest devotee. It feels good to have the knowledge and to not deprive the people who so desperately need it. Thank you Maria and Craig for inspiring, motivating, and creating delicious recipes of our favorite recipes.
