30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse

30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse

I struggled with food and weight throughout adolescence and into adulthood. I remember sitting in the library at age 16 and trying on my friend Lisa’s jacket. All of a sudden, I heard a boy sing, “fat girl in a little coat.” That started my wake up call.

Fat and frustrated, I finally decided to add in the nutrition part to my exercise and practice all the information I was about to preach to the world once I graduated. I was a fat “restrictor” and exercised constantly. After decades of being told by marketing geniuses that “fat free” was the way to lose weight, eating real fat was scary for me. Once I started adding fat to my diet, I slept deeper, felt calmer and better in that first week that I ever had. Now, I understand the biochemical reasons why restricting fat is not the answer. All my life I was taught that good-tasting foods made you fat. It is almost too much to imagine that you can have total satiety while enjoying butter, avocados, grass-fed cheeses and meats, and even sugar-free cheesecake. But it has been over five years and my body feels amazing and I never feel deprived. I traded in a lifetime of over-exercising and fat restriction for a nutrient-dense, fat-filled diet and lost weight in the process.

My weight loss was a hard goal to achieve. But once I found the secrets to healing my mitochondria with the right foods, sleep, exercise, water and overhauling my bathroom pantry, it became easy. I learned the secrets of the hormone insulin and the lesser-known hormone leptin. And by transitioning toward a very low-carb, high-fat (not just high-protein) diet, I had re-sensitized my biochemistry to these essential hormones, which turn off severe food cravings.

Best of all, my diet makeover required a lot less of the self-deprivation I was suffering from when I wasn’t losing weight. The nutrient-rich, relatively high-fat dietary approach I have developed utilizes exotic, little-known replacements for typical high-glycemic starchy foods and sugar and is what finally helped me achieve peace with food, something I never imagined possible. Even more weight came off than I was originally aiming for.

By following the ketogenic lifestyle, you too will understand how to eat to balance your hormones, sleep better, feel better and lose the weight! These tasty and exotic keto foods will keep you satisfied and enhance your physique. You will even get to enjoy desserts again; after all, we also need to enjoy the sweetness of life.



When I was a young teenager I suffered with severe acne. My mom took me to the doctor and without asking what my diet looked like, he put me on a strong dose of antibiotics. I can now pinpoint that moment as having a huge negative impact for not just my physical health but also my mental health.

Sure, I was happy the acne was gone, but my moods started to down-spiral. I was always a really happy kid, but I remember that it was at about that time that I started to experience feelings of sadness. Just because of an antibiotic?, you might ask. Yes, the powerful antibiotics that teens are being put on for acne wreak havoc on the gut where serotonin is produced. Our gut health directly correlates to our moods. What is so detrimental is that I was on antibiotics for years without realizing the damage they were doing. I trusted my doctor. This long-lasting downhill spiral of my gut health causes intense sugar cravings and caused me to gain weight. The weight further lowered my happy-go-lucky spirit. Man, if my doctor just would have asked what I ate and knew that the cereal and skim milk that I started off each day with were the culprit of my acne, I wouldn’t have gone through all of the issues I did. But, of course that brought me to where I am today!

But there are sadder and more serious stories in my family’s medical healthy that, along with my personal story, have made me the passionate messenger of healing with food that I have become today.. I was a lucky little girl who had two fantastic grandpas. Grandpa Vince, my dad’s father, was a kind man who I believe gave me the work ethic that I have today. He owned a plumbing and heating business. He loved to take me fishing and teach me how to garden.

My grandpa Vince survived his first heart attack at age thirty-two, but with the diet that his doctor recommended it is no wonder his heart never healed.  He eventually required heart surgery at age forty-five, then another one at age fifty-two. At that point, the doctors gave him five years to live; he made it nine more years and died at age sixty-one on Thanksgiving morning. My dad was the one who tried to revive him and he still mentions to this day that he believes he could still be alive if hadn’t received so much bad nutrition advice from his doctor, such as to never eat eggs, butter, or saturated fat. He was living off fake butter substitutes and popcorn.

My mom’s father, Grandpa Jerry, was a totally different man. He was a musician and he always made me laugh. I feel honored that I was able to play the guitar alongside him at every holiday get-together up until the day he died from type 2 diabetes.

In Spring 2016, I spoke at a large conference in my hometown and the dietitian from the hospital spoke right before me. I had to plug my ears so I didn’t say anything offensive in front of the crowd because she kept saying to cut out all cholesterol and saturated fats. She also said how vegetable oils and canola oil is a better replacement.

When it was finally my turn to speak, I realized that my presentation would contradict everything she had just told everyone, so I started by saying: Did you know that breast milk is mainly made up of cholesterol and saturated fat? Yep! I don’t think that this marvel was put into place to harm babies. It was put in place to help babies grow and form healthy hormones. Cholesterol is needed to make hormones (everything from thyroid to sex hormones) and to form healthy brains! It helps form the myelin sheath around the cells to help with communication of the nerve cells. The saddest part of this story is that she was the dietician at the hospital nursing home my grandpa Jerry stayed at before he passed away from type 2 diabetes.

Through my writing and teaching I hope to reach as many people as I can, in the hope that the ketogenic solution will keep you and your family members from suffering needlessly like I and both of my grandpas did.

30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse


The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse book is for all of you who have tried a ketogenic diet on your own and didn’t see the results you were looking for or those of you who want to try a ketogenic diet for the first time and be successful right off the bat!

Too many times I have clients desperately reach out to me saying they are on a ketogenic diet and it isn’t working but when I ask them what they are eating, there are foods in their diary that are holding them back from the success they desire. In this book, you will find very specific recipes with perfect macros that will increase your ketogenic state while keeping your body satisfied!

If you decide to make this way of eating part of your lifestyle, you’ll notice you no longer want to nap in the afternoon, your belly fat will disappear, your skin will look amazing, joint pain will no longer an issue, and you will no longer be hungry all day or thinking about food. Sure, it takes time to plan and prepare meals, but we all prioritize our time… When you feel and look amazing, you will not regret the time you put into it!

For some of you, giving keto a try for thirty days may be your goal. But my goal is for you to do the 30-day keto cleanse and feel so amazing that you no longer want to eat any other way!

“I went ‘keto’ 2 years ago and lost weight and my blood sugar went down considerably but I just couldn’t lose any more weight or get beyond the borderline prediabetes.

I bought your program and realized my mistakes. I’ve been following your meal plan for one week and I have already lost 4 lbs and my blood sugar has dropped to normal. I am so excited and just wanted to thank you.” – Judi

  • Dana says:

    I love the books of yours I currently have and this new book looks amazing!

    • Mary Sizemore says:

      My husband and I are losing weight with Keto almost 50 pounds since July and my arthritis is becoming less painful. I would really love to win this book. I know we can do better then we are. I don’t have Facebook or I wouldn’t definitely like Jeto Adapted.

      • Alyssa says:

        Sorry I don’t see where to leave my own comment so I’m replying to yours.;)

        I’ve always struggled with diets because I instantly feel deprived and start to miss my favorite foods. I made it to day 4 of whole 30, we went paleo for like a week, we’ve tried low fat low carbon diets briefly. I can never stick with anything because it’s so different from the food I enjoy. Then we tried keto, and it’s so delicious you honestly can’t even tell you’re in a diet! I think the biggest thing for me is that it doesn’t require me to cut all dairy.

        I would love to win this book and it would certainly help me to keep on track!

    • Roz says:

      I would love to win this book……I’ve heard about and I’ve tried the KetoDiet but something’s not clicking. I know my hormones are out of wack (as I pop a NatureThroid as I write this)…….I woke up sweating from night sweats……..so I’m looking for anything to balance my hormones and help me feel better.

      Additionally, not everyone has Facebook; I understand it’s probably the most popular social media site but I’d rather use Instagram. I have a Facebook account but the negativity of Facebook (I feel) has contributed to my hormones continuing to be out of control; with all that being said, I’m not able to like your Facebook page…….again, I would LOVE to win a copy of your book!!!

      • Dana S says:

        Agreed, I’ve been on keto for about four months now and it’s been stellar for my chronic daily migraines but I’m not losing much weight. I went from using a medication every day to about four times per month. Much better than anything a neurologist has prescribed! But I’m wondering why the weight loss is coming harder for me. I’ve lost and regained the same six pounds over and over unfortunately. I’d love to win this book to help me understand why.

        • Janean says:

          I’m trying to address chronic headaches, an injury from a car wreck making my neck uncomfortable but I’m still a functioning busy RN, wife and parent. Have type 1 DM, past history of Lyme disease with lots of antibiotics. Since its impossible to isolate anything as a single
          Cause of the headaches, my nutrition is the best place to focus right Now. The low carb lifestyle makes the most sense for DM control, but hasn’t been so hard to stick to. This book would be a great resource .

    • Amy Lynn Rockey says:

      It’s amazing the difference I feel when limiting carbs and sugar…. I’m not perfect at it but I want to learn more!

    • Elizabeth vierling says:

      I grew up in river falls, very obese and teased my entire life I met my husband had 4 kids went on a cruise and decided it was time. My friend in Washington told me about keto. In june 2014 I took the step and started keto life. Best decision I made. In 1 years time I lost 110 pounds and have maintained my weight and my insurance paid for skin removal surgery. Please pick me . I love your recipes

    • Michelle hedge says:

      I would love to win this book! I got so healthy and feeling great on the ketogenic diet this last year, then over the past month I’ve fell apart with carb eating. I need a reboot desperately!

    • Michelle hedge says:

      I used this diet on my daughter with Crohn’s disease to help her regain health, and she did. But we recently got lazy with carb eating…now she is miserable in a flair that won’t relent. We need a reboot desperately! Winning this book would be super helpful!

  • Kellie says:

    I’m brand spanking new to the keto lifestyle–less than a month in. I found your Quick and Easy Ketogenic Cooking on Amazon, and I’m so grateful for the amazing resource! For years, I have strictly adhered to what I thought was a healthy diet (low fat, lots of fruits and veggies) and lots of cardio but have had a higher body fat percentage than I wanted. I’ve made amazing progress these last few weeks with keto eating and weight lifting and I’m excited to see how much further I can go with this lifestyle. I’d love to have more yummy recipes to try. Thanks, Maria!

  • Margie Brown says:

    Love your books! Beautifully written and photographed. Would love to have your newest book!

  • Heather says:

    Since being Keto I have noticed that I feel better (more energy) and am less bloated. I don’t break out nearly as much as I use to since sugar is out of my life!

  • Patricia Grant says:

    I would love to get your new book. I have your others and they are great.

  • C. Crowell says:

    I am definitely in need of help. I’ve tried keto, it worked for a while but I’ve developed a rash that won’t go away. So, now I’m exploring why. I’ve had to exit keto to figure this out but know this is how I’m supposed to be eating. Everytime I try to add non-keto foods back in, I feel terrible. I’d love this book to help me safely get back into the keto lifestyle. Thsnk you!

  • Holly Truitt says:

    Love your stuff!! I have several books of yours but not this one!! 😀 Ketogenic helped me to lose weight and feel better overall physically. 😀

  • Candace Selph says:

    I’m looking for a format to help me stick with Keto. When I do follow it, I lose weight, I’m just not good at planning

  • Karen Brandt says:

    I am a newbie with keto! I just started doing the Keto lifestyle and I feel so much better with more energy and alertness. I have very poor circulation with lots of swelling in my legs. I have noticed the swelling to be way down and under control.

  • Marki Haynes says:

    My husband and I have been eating ketogenic for about 3 months. We have both lost weight and feel much better. I had a physical last week and my cholesterol spiked. I know I must be doing something wrong. I would love to get uour book to help me get on the right track.

  • michele roberts says:

  • Kelley says:

    I love your books. The recipes are amazing. I’m so glad my husband told me about your books. I finally understood for the first time in years what all the processed junk food made me feel awful. Thank you for all your insight.

  • Lisa says:

    I’m trying some recipes and listened to a webinar and it certainly makes sense! Sticking with the execution is a step forward
    and then step back and try again process for me.

  • Stephanie Sanchez says:

    Bring a single mother, it’s difficult to buy nice things for myself. I was able to purchase your other book, and it was such a life changer! I have lost 50lbs since August, but have been feeling heavy and like crap. I have bad migraines and lately they’ve been a daily occurance. I feel like perhaps if I do a cleanse, my body will become normal and I will no longer have pain. Your first cookbook has helped me to understand keto, and love it. I just need that extra push. I love seeing you and the boys on your IG posts, they remind me of myself and my little son. You’re such an inspiration and thank you for helping me to lose this weight and opening my eyes to keto and all the amazing benefits. 💜💜💜

  • Sheri says:

    Yes Please! I am so excited for your newest book to come out. And to share it with my family! Thank you Maria! You and Craig are amazing!

  • Joan Schoenoff says:

    I’m always excited to see your books. There is so much misinformation out there. It helps make sense of it all.

  • Theresa Stretten says:

    Would love to win this book. On my very first day (literally) of this lifestyle I was able to stop taking Zantac (for acid indigestion). The indigestion would be painful in the evening and make me nauseous every morning.

  • Carol says:

    The Keto diet has not only helped me lose weight I am off all my diabetic meds also!

  • Brenda Wilkey says:

    Keto has given me hope for health that I did not have before. My journey started with paleo but Keto has given me so much more! My Hashimoto’s has not flared and my Celiac is under control because Keto is also gluten free. I cannot wait to begin the detox also.

  • Lori Jenkinson says:

    I am so thankful to this way of living. I have managed to keep of 60 pounds and now have lost about 20 more even with many cheat days, but after I fall, I get right back up because I know it is SO worth it. I appreciate all the recipes and knowledge from you Maria, and I continue to share the gifts you so gratefully give with all my friends and family. This lifestyle is a game changer!

  • Sue says:

    I feel better when I eat keto. Would love to try a different type of cleanse. Would love to read this book!

  • Jessica Ploehn says:

We got pregnant naturally and the light of my life is now 5 months old! Thank you again for your amazing website and resources!

  • Chris says:

    After years of frustration, contradictory discoveries, and aimless wandering, the ketogenic lifestyle has allowed my wife and me to take control of our health, and our lives. Thanks Maria, for showing us the way.

  • Kim Watson says:

    Sweet regards Joyce

  • April Prellwitz says:

    Since starting keto 5 months ago, I lost 40 lbs and fit in a size 10 jeans. I love this WOE because it doesn’t feel like a diet.. I love this food! My husband has also lost 30 lbs since we started. I would love this recipe book for some fresh ideas.

  • Kim Valentine says:

    I have tried many diets over the years but none were sustainable, or healthy! And always the weight came back. Once I learned about the keto way of life I lost 30 lbs in about 2 months! I really couldn’t believe how easy and quick it was for me. My horrible sweet tooth cravings were tamed after only a couple days, so I am not tempted by all the sugary health killing things around me. And I am not always hungry like I used to be, snacking all day long. I used to hate clothes shopping, nothing looked good. Now it’s fun!

    My body was bloated, my feet hurt when I got out of bed in the morning, I had no energy and I had trouble thinking of words, just to name a few of the things I attributed to being in my 60’s. But after this new way of eating all that went away. Seriously, why doesn’t the world know about this!!

    I have two of Maria’s cookbooks which I love. I would love to win this newest book!

  • Ashley Pomery says:

    Keto is amazing! It helped me lose weight, improved my skin, and helped with my chronic “tummy troubles.” I absolutely love this lifestyle!

  • Liz Studly says:

    I just ordered one of your other books yesterday and am committing to starting a new lifestyle as soon as it arrives! I need to make a change so I can be around for my newborn, 6 year old and 15 year old. So excited to start!

  • Victoria says:

    I look forward to more great recipes!

  • Missy says:

    Keto + cleanse is intriguing. I’m curious to see how the 30 days are structured.

  • Lauren Gassaway says:

    Keto has helped both my husband and I to feel better and lose weight.

  • kris says:

    Sometimes one needs a 30 day goal. I’ve been on a slippery slope lately and this is so timely!!

  • McDonna says:

    You just continue to amaze with your high output of high quality ketogenic help for those who struggle with their health!

  • Rose Richards says:

    Your books really helped me understand the complexities of a proper ketogenic diet. I was overwhelmed and frustrated before that. I’ve lost 40 lbs in the last year, have eliminated my IBS and GERD, significantly improved my endometriosis pain and back pain, and for the first time actually enjoy shopping for clothing 😀

  • Linda D says:

    After a 70 lb. weight loss, I’ve gained some back. This is the book I need to get back on track.

  • Sally says:

    I have used the keto way of eating for a few years now. I was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer in 2012. Chemo has ravaged my body terribly so the keto diet has helped with the pain from my RA which was aggravated by chemotherapy.

  • Sarah says:

    I have been having my Daughter who is 16 follow your way of eating for the past year for her PCOS and all the horrible things that go along with it. If she sticks to it, her symptoms: acne, moods, weight yo-yo all go away. It’s hard to be a teen and eat this way when kids around her are eating fast food. I cook a lot of your recipes for her to take for lunch and snacks. Which is helpful:) So thank Maria!
    She did write about her PCOS for Girls Magazine and on her blog maggieroyce.com

  • Kathy says:

    I’d love to give this to my mom who is new to Keto.

  • Jackie says:

    I have a host of autoimmune diseases, the last being IBD. By listening to my body, I gravitated to this type of eating, only learning later that it had a name! By living a kektogenic lifestyle, I actually feel human again. Hopefully with time, all this dis-ease will dis-appear!

  • Suzie says:

    Helped my sister-in-law with her Hasimoto’s. I would love to try!

  • Angie noffsinger says:

    I Am hoping to reverse my pcos. Have t started yet though

  • Ana says:

    My A1C dropped from 6.8 to 6.2, I’m on my way to seeing it less than 6

  • Ketomacrobook says:

    I am about a few weeks into the Keto lifestyle. I never thought eating less protein and limiting carbs to less than 30g would give me energy and feeling of such balance. I’m sill learning and hoping to help others as well! Would love to receive this book and expand my knowledge and help with more meal ideas!

  • Jodie Wilson says:

    My 5-year-old daughter deals with drug-resistant epilepsy. After 3 years of struggling to control them, we have been following keto for about 3 weeks and I can already see how much more alert she is. She is still having seizures, but she isn’t dropping to the ground. She isn’t cured, but I see hope.

  • Sandy Munn says:

    I had tried Atkins before and lost a lot of weight. Unfortunately, I gained it back when I went back to my old eating habits. Then I had a heck of a time trying to get back into ketosis. I read in your books that I was eating too much protein and so I used the keto calculator to figure out what I should be eating. So far I have lost 30 pounds on my own but I think I need more information in order to solve some other problems that I have.

  • Libbie says:

    I have been struggling trying to lose weight. I recently spoke with a friend that has lost over 50-lbs this past year. I asked her her secret and she told me about you and the ketogenic way of eating. I purchased two of your cookbooks and love them. But, I am a newby at this and I have so much to learn; this book would be a great addition to my library!

  • Helen Dehner says:

    Just pre-ordered your book for my Kindle. Can’t wait for delivery on 12/27!

  • Anne says:

    Lost 8# in the last couple months pretty easily. Almost at my happy weight!

  • Nancy says:

    I have all of your books and am much healthier than 4 years ago!

  • Kathy Murrell says:

    I am very interested in learning more about this type of eating. I need a major change in my life and I think this is it!!!

  • Alanna says:

    Keto has helped me greatly reduce my chronic joint pain from rheumatoid arthritis that I was diagnosed with at age three. I love your Ketogenic Cookbook and honestly I feel like this new book is exactly what I need right now… I am stuck in a rut and I think this would help me start losing again. One of my goals is to someday go to a class of yours at your house 🙂 Keto has also helped improve my husband’s skin. 🙂 I’d love to win!

  • Sara Ibraheim says:

    I need help. I’m 100 pounds overweight, pre-diabetic and falling down my family slope of illness. I’m hoping keto is a way to stick to a different lifestyle of eating.

  • Lenore Wilkison says:

    I have one of your books, but would like all eventually! I have lost over 60 pounds (and counting!-40 to go) and now my husband, sister, and, hopefully, son are starting the diet.

  • marybeth says:

  • Hannah says:

    Would love to win this book!! I’m coming from an AIP diet that I’ve gotten away from, and all of my pain is back. Ready to take it a step further and go keto!

  • nicole j says:

    This new book looks beautiful. So excited for you guys!! Where do i start on how keto has helped me?! Long long hard nails, perfect skin, bye bye adult acne (had it since I was 12). Hair back to normal after losing over half of it from Hashimotos. No more blood sugar dips, no hangry episodes during the day, no headaches or nausea from not eating in time. Can go half a day without food comfortably!! And of course eliminating all the excess stored fat on my body!!!

  • Monica says:

    I LOVE KETO, thanks to Maria! I have lived the keto lifestyle for just over a year but I didn’t get the results I hoped for until I stumbled upon Maria’s website. My hormones were out of wack, my sleep schedule was a mess and I had attempted to lose fat with what I had done in the past that worked but it wasn’t working! Enter Maria and her brilliance…What a blessing! Just 2 months using Maria’s program and ninja like keto adapted recipes and I had lost all the fat that I wanted to lose plus more! My hormones leveled out. I slept a full 8 hours without waking up even once and energy…I had energy! I love this lifestyle so much! I tell everyone who will listen about Maria and send them to her website. My daughter and her husband FINALLY chose to jump on board (yay!) and they both lost 20-30 lbs their first month! It took them seeing my results to commit and now my son-in-law is free from his debilitating migraines and my daughter’s hormones are becoming more balanced day by day. What a blessing to this world you are, Maria Emmerich! One day, I hope to meet you in person. Thankful, so thankful!

  • Shannon Anderson says:

    I have not tried Keto, but believe in it. I’d love to win and give it a go. Struggling with weight, muscle and joint aches, knee injury, skin issues, gut sensitivities, and depression. Ready to put all that behind me and heal my body and mind.

  • Anna says:

    I have eaten a keto diet in the past, and lost weight, but after doing therapy for disordered eating I have a very hard time following any kind of diet – even though I want to, and need to, for my health. I hope your book can help me get past this mental block I’ve developed so I can finally take control of my body.

  • Desiree says:

    I have been on the keto diet for about three weeks, I have lost 5 lbs and feel great! Before I started I had headaches daily, tired, and always bloated. Overall I just felt poorly. So happy a friend introduced this new qay of living to me.

  • Janelle says:

    I am young and thin, but had blood work done and to the shock of my doctor had high fasting glucose and a high a1c. There were no indicators that I was at risk for insulin resistance, but those numbers don’t lie! Since eating low carb and high fat, I have steady energy, my acne has cleared and I feel more mentally level and even. Plus it’s delicious. Thank you for helping me to get to this place!

  • Debbie says:

    The keto lifestyle has improved my asthma, SVT, and arthritis. I’ve been off track and would love to win the book to heal.

  • April says:

    We started this lifestyle change as a family and have had nothing but positive effects. Both my husband and I have lost around 75lbs each and have kept it off as well as no longer having to take the medications we were on. My daughter and son are now in the desired weight range for their height. My daughter was heavy and diagnosed with precocious puberty, but by eating this way her hormones and growth regulated without the aid of synthetic hormones! The pediatric endrocronlolgist was very impressed with how we did as a family! I love my cook books and my binders that I keep with printed keto recipes and I would love to have this book in my collection. Thank you!

  • Kathleen says:


    After I discovered your site in July, I immediately began following your recommendations to become keto-adapted and have since lost 40+ pounds. For most of my adult life, I struggled with weight. Even my wedding day was not as happy as it could have been because I was so self-conscious and embarrassed about my appearance. But now I’m looking great, and even better, feeling great! My husband is constantly remarking about how amazing I look. Indeed, he is also adapting to the keto lifestyle and is losing weight and getting healthier. Our 10-year anniversary is approaching, so I plan on taking my oversized, tent of a wedding dress and getting it altered into a sexy cocktail dress for a fabulous night out with my husband! But more importantly, I plan to live a long and healthy life with him and our two kids. Nothing is better than that!

    Blessings to you, Craig, and your boys. Have a truly Merry Christmas!

  • Julie Ferrell says:

    I started low carb reading everything I could. I had read some about Keto but only enough to know what it is. I don’t have much to loose, I lost most on a low fat diet that went up and down. I wasn’t really loosing much on low carb, I switched to Keto and I have no plans to look back.

  • Jessica says:

    Keto was a struggle for me at first because it seemed like I was doing everything I had been told not to do, for as long as I could remember, with regards to food and eating right. I still struggle some days because it was so ingrained in my mind. What I don’t struggle with is how much better I feel when I eat a keto diet. It has really changed my mindset and the way I think about food. My thanks to you for all the hard work you do to make the transition easier for many of us!

  • Roz says:

    I’ve been doing this about 2 years. I’m obese and have cancer, and need to keep losing weight. I feel cutting out grains and sugar has helped my health. I am losing weight slowly, so obviously I can use some more information and help. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Barbara says:

    This looks like what I need to kickstart me back! I love your cookbooks! 🙂

  • Denise says:

    The ketogenic diet has helped treat, control, and/or reverse so many health problems I have/had. It’s been a lifesaver! No more laundry list of pharmaceuticals and only getting worse! I still have a long way to go, but am so thankful for how far I’ve come!

  • Cindy says:

    Oh how I would luv to win this book, I am struggling with this lifestyle… I have actually put on weight

  • Heidi Lynn says:

    I’m trying to reverse some early arthritis — hoping keto will help! I’ve been Whole 30 for a couple months and want to try more

  • Diane Wesson says:

    I started eating Keto after I had weight loss surgery at the recommendation of my Dr. I was in severe pain from arthritis and fibromyalgia. My kidneys were starting to function poorly from diabetes and high blood pressure. I could not even walk to the door if a store much less shop.
    The pain left almost immediately after starting this lifestyle change. Kidneys are functioning normally, I’m no longer diabetic, no longer have high blood pressure.
    Yes I had surgery, but changing to eating Keto has literally saved my life. I will be 63 next week and I’m healthier that I was at 33.
    I would love to have your book. I’ve bought up all I could find.

  • Brandy B. says:

    I love that it helps with food cravings!

  • Allison says:

    My hubby and I have lost 100lbs combined and we are always looking for more ways to simplify eating keto.

  • Shannon Tallent says:

    Thank you so much for your educating cookbook. When my husband and I started this way of eating, in April of 2016, I had a hard time finding information online. I purchased your cookbook, “Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking” and began cooking. Since we started my husband dropped 50+ lbs and I have dropped 30 lbs. I still have about 10 more to go, but feel very confident that through this lifestyle the fat loss will continue. I also want to note that my cholesterol level has been hovering between 200-220 and I’ve been on blood pressure medication for several years. I have my annual Wellness visit with my doctor on Monday and I’m very much looking forward to seeing the results! I’m hoping for great numbers! Thank you again for sharing your passion for good health and research with us! ❤

  • Dian Stafford-Gilmour says:

    Our keto journey began in August 2015. My husband’s best friend was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes a few months earlier. He was overweight and started to follow a ketogenic diet. The weight just fell off of him and he was no longer Type 2 Diabetic within a few short months. After a visit with another friend of ours we found out that her husband, an ultra marathon runner, also followed a ketogenic lifestyle…so my husband started reading. And reading. And reading.

    My husband and I had both been overweight for years and I had done my share of diet plans but we never did any of them “together”. He wanted to try keto but I was still skeptical. He had fully committed to keto by mid-August 2015…I played along, but I wasn’t taking it that seriously. By December 2015 he had lost about 30 pounds while I had only lost a few pounds. Around that same time, I had my semi-annual visit with my oncologist due to a breast cancer diagnosis in 2014. I mentioned to her that my weight was a concern because I had gained so much during treatments and that my husband had started a ketogenic eating plan. She just stopped and looked at me and said “DO IT, YOU WILL LOVE IT!”. So I officially started keto on December 28, 2015…and shortly after that I found YOU and your wonderful recipes!

    Fast forward to December 10, 2016…my husband has lost over 100lbs and still loves everything about the ketogenic lifestyle, especially all the new clothes he got to buy! I have lost 80lbs and haven’t felt this amazing, well, ever! I saw my oncologist again last week and she almost had me in tears telling me how happy she was for me. I have energy again, the joint pain from all that extra weight is gone, and I am sleeping better than ever before. I still have a bit more weight I would like to lose, but your recipes and blogs keep us both motivated…and we are doing it TOGETHER! Thank you!!!

    Happy Holidays and all the best to you and your family in 2017!

  • Kathi jones says:

    I m 5’10” tall and have weighed close to 200lbs and as littles as 125,lbs, a victim of many “diets” that work for a while but are not a way of living just a way of eating. Being a Ketoterian is a lifestyle, a passion, almost a religion. I am now at 130lbs and while that is wonderful, what is really wonderful is that I feel amazing. Joint pain I had is gone headaches that I have had fir years due to stress are gone, I’m sleeping better than I ever have before, I’m back exercising and excited about it for the first time in over a year, and my fiance says I am happier and nicer (menopause has been squelched). While I would certainly like to lose a nit more fat and gain more muscle, I think Keto’ really is a focus on health, over all health, and one of the best side effect just happens to be weight-loss. Thanks Maria for all you do for so many people that you’ve never have and may nevermet. I know it’s more appreciated than you could ever imagine. Thank you for another great book! 😉

  • Ruth says:

    Are there recipes that are egg and dairy free? Keto is really boring when you can’t eat these 🙁 both me and my partner are doing therapeutic Keto for health reasons but I can’t do eggs and dairy and he hates coconut, so choice is really limited

  • Stephanie Otis says:

    I have been enjoying your cookbooks for the last 3 yrs, they have helped me keep,my 125 pounds off. I initially had bariatric surgery to lose weight but knew it was only a tool, I still have to do the work. I researched and chose to follow a low carb lifestyle which led me to learn more about Keto. I went against my nutritionist and surgeon advise and started my Keto journey 3 yrs ago. I feel amazing, don’t get sick, I’m no longer diabetic, my lipid prolife amazed my doc! Thank you for all your knowledge you share through your blog and books!

  • Kaely Linker says:

    I lost 50 lbs, was able to stop taking my daily pain and anxiety medications, healed a gut issue I didn’t know I had, and even was able to start running all thanks to your eating plans! I still have 30lbs to lose, so I’m planning on starting the new year with this book!

  • Holly R. says:

    KETO has helped me lose weight, yes. But it also has halted my endometriosis. I haven’t had any other pain or problems as long as I adhere to the diet. A lot of women my age end up with cysts or need a hysterectomy, and since being keto I haven’t had any pain. It’s really a lifestyle and thank you and Craig for making recipes for us so we can keep up with our lifestyle!

  • Kathleen Kelley says:

    I have just recently (about 3 months) starting following your blog and slowly making changes in my diet. I am down 20 lbs and have lots of energy! This is a big deal for me as I am a 53 year old menopausal female and most of my same age (or even younger) friends are exhausted all of the time. I can’t wait to get a peek at your book and learn even more!

  • Manuel Gomez says:

    Reversed my type 2 diabetes.

  • Max Salmen says:

    Maria I Love you!

    Please allow me to explain: I made the switch to Keto in January 2015. Unfortunately I found Keto before I found you. I had struggled with weight and eating healthy since High School, eventually losing 60 lbs with a proactive LCHF approach and a ton of working out. I turned to Keto to prepare for a kidney transplant. My Dad is a type 1 diabetic, in 1995 he received a kidney and a pancreas from an anonymous donor whose life had been cut short in a car wreck. My Dad followed the counsel of his (field leading) Doctors. He was right back to the horrendous high carbohydrate low-fat diet all the Doctors swore was healthy, and thus he was right back to ravaging his own body. The pancreas failed in 2009, and he went back to on Insulin. The kidney began to fail in 2012, and by the time he was willing to admit this to his family that the kidney that had given him life was dying, the organ was functioning around 6%.

    I knew, somehow, that my kidney would save him. I began preparing for the surgery and I decided that because this was something I would only be able to do once in my life I would do everything in my power to do it well. I poured over pubmed for hours and eventually I began to find a common thread. The Ketogenic diet was associated with all the goals I had. For 6 months I tested my blood sugar, and my urine ketones multiple times each day, I used a Ketogenic – Intermittent Fasting protocol with a 3 hour weekly carb-up. My partner Sarah, thought I was insane, she would shake her head at the constant blood testing and strange consumption of massive amounts of fat (coconut oil by the spoonful). I was also using a very intense 8 session/week training protocol in order to go on the table with the strongest kidney and the leanest body possible.

    My Mom started calling me muscle man, because the minimal amount of fat I was carrying prior began to melt off me, FAST. Everyone wrote me off as crazy. My initial round of tests was all over the charts because I didn’t yet know that a long term fast could affect all my blood tests. I will never forget sitting in the waiting room at the University of Minnesota and the Nurse sprinting out to find me after seeing my test results. My blood glucose was 41, she thought I was about to pass out. I was fine, and I wasn’t hungry, and I hadn’t eaten in 48 hours. I upped my carbs (from <10g to 80g) for a week and got re-tested. None of the Doctors were willing to address my deep ketosis test numbers, however my second set of numbers was phenomenal.

    I got cleared to donate the kidney and we set the date. July 14, 2015. On the day of the operation, the transplant team runs all the blood tests again as a failsafe. I was in my pre-operation consult with the lead surgeon and the anesthesiologist, oddly neither of them wanted to talk about the surgery all they kept asking me was what I did to stay fit, both of them told me multiple times "you literally have the best bloodwork I have ever seen" My kidney function was 160% of what you would expect for someone my height and weight. My Dad's lead surgeon came into my room a few hours after the transplant was finished, he told me "your Dad has better kidney function now than he has had since before you were born."

    I was 32 years old.

    After the transplant, my family slowly stopped thinking that I was a kooky nutcase with a conspiracy theory about the medical establishment. Obviously I was onto to something, but Keto seemed very extreme to them after watching the cold calculated precision and testing protocols I had used. I on the other hand moved toward a more paleo diet, but it didn't take long to desperately miss the way I had felt while I was Keto. I decided to switch back to the diet I had used prior to the transplant. This is when I found you Maria! I was reading an article I found on Dom D'Agostino's blog out loud to my partner Sarah, she had recently found a lump in her breast and was extremely concerned about cancer. The article was highlighting the Otto Warburg theory that cancer cannot live without sugar, and addressing the rise in cancer, Alzheimer's, and diabetes as sugar consumption rises. Suddenly Sarah was very interested in this strange diet that flew in the face of everything she had ever been taught about healthy eating.

    This was my opportunity, and I seized it! I had my copy of Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking 2 feet away on my kitchen counter, and I handed it to Sarah. Sarah poured over it all day, and my life has never been the same since. The next evening Sarah looked at me and said, "I want to do Keto and I can do it Maria's way"

    Since then, it has become much easier for me to espouse the benefits of the Ketogenic diet. I've given half a dozen copies of that book to friends and family as gifts, and it is always the starting point I give people when they want to go Keto. I couldn't convince my Mom to give it a shot, so I just convinced her personal trainer instead, and now guess who is going Keto?

    I'm excited to get my hands on anything you write not only because I love the recipes but because when I first read Q&E KC the only thing I could think was "Wow this book is perfect, I don't think I've ever done anything as well as this book was written" Recipes, Macros, Substitutes for Allergies etc, The Science of it, where to buy keto ingredients, there is literally nothing missing.

    I'm very thankful for the work you've done and the wonderful impact it has had on my life and I look forward to reading everything you put out there.

    All my Love and Gratitude


    • Lara lahr says:

      That’s so interesting as I tried to give my kidney and my 24 hour urine was twice the amount as the normal person so it threw off my creatinine. I think this is related to Keto diet. Don’t you?

  • Wendy Dayton says:

    I need to turn insulin resistance and gallbladder issues around. What you stated about hormone balance with fats and the keto lifestyle are definitely an encouragement to me. Thank you, Maria!

  • Laura says:

    I would love to win a copy of your latest book. I have been trying keto for about four months and have lost more than 30 lbs. I’m not hungry most of the time, have significantly more energy, and have made plenty of headway toward my health goals. My dad died from a stroke six years ago. He, much like your grandfather, had been put on lowfat diets after an angina attack at age 38. He survived cancer, then years later developed type ii diabetes, and I can’t imagine he was ever advised to try low carb, high fat. I am on four types of blood pressure meds myself, and hope my new lifestyle is going to help me get off the chemical cocktail. Thanks for everything you’ve shared.

  • Oh oh oh oh… I so love there work you do to help people achieve their weight loss goals… And doing it while providing a healthy way to eat! You rock… I would love to have this book. I hope to win.

  • Caitlin says:

    I keep dealing with on-again, off-again candida issues. I’d love for this to be the answer to this struggle… Thanks!

  • Angelika says:

    I’ve been following you and your cooking for years. Facebook shows me memories of you and the dishes I’ve made from your cookbooks and blog! I did you to be one of not very many consistent bloggers out there. Sure, you’ve evolved, but you also remained true with your message to your readers! Thank you! Keep on ketoing 😊

  • Stinne says:

    Hi Maria
    I am struggling with some autoimmune problems, and I am looking into keto to heal. I am new to it, so I would love to begin with reading your book and following it. I live in Denmark and there are no books on the subject here.
    Love, Stinne

  • Melinda says:

    Keto had healed my adult acne! I’m still struggling with weight loss on keto. I would love this book to try and figure that out!

  • Rebecca says:

    Is this open internationally! I’ve read your Keto cookbook and loved it, and can’t wait to check this one out!

  • Ash says:

    Rome wasn’t built in one day. The same goes for my health. Finding the keto way was like a signal saying THIS is the way. Thank you Maria for being a guiding light in a mass of confusing / contradicting information out here in the jungle 🙂

  • Lynn says:

    A Ketogenic way of eating helped me endure my treatments for breast cancer. I got off the sugar train, eliminated bad carbs and lost 20 lbs! I have more energy and no more migraine headaches. Keto for life…literally!

  • Heidi F says:

    I am so excited for this book, I already pre-ordered it on Amazon. But I could definitely use another copy to share with my family and friends

  • Liz Trent says:

    Not only has Keto helped me many of my friends are now Keto. It has curbed our cravings for carbs and we’re all losing weight to as a bonus!

  • Maureen says:

    I feel wonderful eating the keto way! I have gained and lost the same amount of weight many times. Always finally giving in to the temptation of sweets. I have lost those cravings! I feel in control! It is wonderful. Just wish I had found this sooner!

  • Jenny Mathweg says:

    Following Maria’s Ketogenic way of eating has greatly improved my life in so many ways. Her way works the best. No more brittle dry hair and itchy skin! No more cystic acne! No more allergies and post nasal drip! No more asthma! No more depression or anxiety. No more migraines! My hair, nails and skin look healthy. The yeast infections are gone. Fibromyalgia is gone. I have so much energy and I can do so much now. I love to run and do body weight excersises. I used to hate to move it hurt so much. I have crazy muscle tone which I never had before. I’m off of all medications! My periods are so much better and no more awful cramps! The constipation is gone. My mood and memory are so much better. What I love the most is I lost 33 lbs so far and way smaller in size then I have ever been. Hello size 6 bikinis and loving it!! I will always Be in Keto!!

  • Sherri Svrcek says:

    Thank you for your wonderful books! I have two of them and am looking forward to putting them into practice!

  • Seem says:

    I and my husband are doing keto and finally after years of trying to reduce body fat I can finally see the results with keto. Wish I knew about it earlier.

    Oh and also my cholesterol level has come down and thatz a BIG achievement.

  • I just started keto about a week ago, and I love it so far. I’m actually happy! I have never said that with any other restricted eating plan before. I look forward to getting into ketosis and seeing long-term results.

  • Kelley says:

    So looking forward to this book. I have already preordered it on Amazon. Would love to have it before then!!

  • Pam says:

    The Ketogenic diet has transformed my life! I have been diagnosed with several autoimmune diseases that had left me almost lifeless and hopeless. Slowly my energy levels are raising and the excess belly fat is dwindling down. This way of eating is not just a diet its a total way of life that I absolutely love. I honestly believe this is the way we are created to eat for maximum health potential! Thank you Maria for your awesome recipes and your loving passionate inspiration to help become the best we can be.

  • NicoleS says:

    I am also a work in progress, only 2 weeks into my awareness of the ketogenic diet. Already I have noticed my sugar cravings are gone! Hallelujah! I am struggling a bit to adapt in some ways, but the more I read, the more I know I need to work on this.
    Thank you for all of your helpful information.

  • Koshie says:

    keto living has helped me conquer cravings; well, really, it has helped me get in control of my carb addiction!

  • Dian says:

    Well I would LOVE to win this book because first of all I have NEVER won anything and secondly I love all your books. I have to admit I have fallen off the wagon and feel horrible but can’t seem to get back on track. i can’t seem to be able to understand this. I read all these people talking about all the fat they eat but nothing I read tells me how to get all this extra fat in my day. i must have a learning disability or something. Best wishes to you and yours and congratulations on your new book.

  • Terri says:

    Eating keto has eliminated the brain fog I suffered from my entire adult life. It’s also moderated some of the distressing symptoms of menopause. I’m down about 15 pounds from where I was when I started… but I’m still above 200 lbs. and seem to be stuck. Maybe this book is what I need.

  • Tessa says:

    Reading all of these stories makes me so sad. I have followed you for a few years , have your latest cookbook ( I love the protein bars)..but too much fat seems to give me diarrhea. I wish from the bottom of my heart that I could make the keto lifestyle work for me. i just ordered the “fat Flush diet” from green med info thinking that maybe my gallbladder needs a tune up. I am in good health , just want to lose 15 -20 lbs. I must be doing something wrong , and would like to see if your new cookbook cleanse would work.
    Thank you,

  • I guess I’m not keto at this point… low carb for years but keto hasn’t kicked in. To much protein? Not sure.

  • Tracey says:

    Looking forward to the new book for the new year!

  • Angie says:

    I know this works. I did a 10 week keto diet and lost weight. However, I did not stick with keto like I should have. I need to truly make it a lifestyle. This book looks amazing. Thank you.

  • Susan Jones says:

    I am a type 1 diabetic and saw my numbers go down when I follow a ketogenic diet

  • Laura Donohoi says:

    Eating Keto had helped my pcos so much! I also have been able to lose weight so easily when in the past on other diets it was hard to or non existent. I also don’t think about food often during the day because I’m kept full from eating good quality fats. I need to switch things up and get the weight loss moving again and I think this book is just what I need!

  • Wendelin says:

    Maria’s Keto guidance has helped me discover how to eat to feel my best. I always come back to this lifestyle when I’ve strayed. The key to my real weight loss has been to cut out dairy and minimize protein to no more than 25 grams per meal. Thank you Maria.

  • Shizue from Medford says:

    My massage therapist has been talking to me for years about your books and how your knowledge has helped her. Recently I have been diagnosed with epilepsy and my research along with my pilates instructor (and of course my massage therapist) has led me to you and your knowledge of the keto diet. I would love to be the winner and start this diet using the information in the book and work toward controlling my epilepsy through diet alone. Because I haven’t been on the Keto diet yet, I can not speak of any personal experiences.

  • Christine Salvi says:

    Thank you for the recipes… I love this WOL

  • Gita Mathias says:

    My husband and I lost a lot of weight by following a low carb diet. I used your blog, website & delicious recipes that you so generously share to keep to low carb diet. I also have done one of your master classes & have two of your ebooks. I would like to follow a proper ‘ketogenic diet’ to experience the health benefits and this book will be useful in doing that. Thank you for all that you do.

  • Jeff Wright says:

    Just getting started and looking for good resources like you. Thanks for sharing and helping

  • Anna says:

    Really enjoying the cookbook of yours that I recently purchased at Barnes & Noble after reading a recommendation on another blog! The recipes are quick and easy, and I love that you made them so they can be made “with one hand”! The Orange Crush shake is my favorite. Delicious and perfect after a workout. Looking forward to this book too!

  • Rita says:

    I just discovered The Ketogenic Cookbook and the recipes are fabulous, but I would like to try the 30 day cleanse as I’m having so much trouble getting off 20 extra pounds that won’t budge no matter what I do!! Thank you for all you do! BTW, your boys are precious!!

  • Kim J says:

    I think this is the best way of eating! I would love this book to further improve my health, I can’t wait to check it out. Thank you!!

  • krickt says:

    I was starting to have some strange diabetic symptoms, even though I wasn’t considered diabetic or even pre diabetic. My toes would go numb, my joints would ache, and my feet would get cold. 3 years after going exclusively keto, all that has stopped. I can out run teenagers (I’m 50) I can almost leap tall buildings without running! lol… I feel so much better, and the added benefit of being scientifically sound just makes my day, every day.
    Keep up the good work, Maria, I need more foods to eat!

  • Rose says:

I have chronic inflammation in my right hip, pains in my stomach and I have around 40lbs to shed. It is tough when my family (husband and four children) do not want to eat this way and love their carbs! I’m trying though. I have to do this for myself so I can be a healthier me for me and for them. I think your information is very helpful. Thank you for sharing your story and knowledge.

  • Jill says:

And my thyroid doc is even coming down on my dosage… as I’m losing weight… and (gasp)… improving my thyroid function, well heck!!!!

    No longer having a thyroid has slowed my metabolism to a very hard to stay slim rate. I have tried so many diets, low carb, low glycemic, and plain just eating very little.

  • Amanda says:

    My entire life I have struggled with my weight and my health, and still do; now my sweet daughter is creeping up in age and weight and it has opened my eyes more than anything has. I need this, not just for my hypothyroid and prediabetic body, but for my sweet 8 year old child that I had guided down the wrong food path for so long. I cannot fix what I fed her the first 8 years of her life, but I sure can fix what she eats for the rest of her life – I can instill a love of food and her body that she hasn’t experienced before. Every single meal we have made of your’s is unbelievably good and it excites her that she gets to help with something that tastes so good and is good for her! Thank you for all you do – I’d very much love a copy of your book!

  • Amber Weber says:

    I’d love to win this. I’ve struggled with my weight ever since i got married and got on the birth control pill. I went from a size 4 to a size 12 within 6 months. I’ve since gotten off the pill and had 6 babies, and am at my heaviest weight ever. I go back and forth between a low carb diet and eating whatever the heck I want to eat because I get frustrated that I’m not seeing results. I need ready to make this a lifestyle change!

  • Marcie says:

    I love the way you come up with so many things to cook!

  • Alisa Smith-Anderson says:

    My mother recently went Keto to lose weight and lower her blood pressure so she couldn’t have knee surgery.
    I’ve done Keto I never the past with great success and so has my husband and my dad.

  • Heather says:

    I’ve been a keto-yoyo-er for years. But I’ve always felt the best when I stuck to my keto macros. Joint pain improved . Skin pain and inflammation gone. Skin clearer. Allergies and asthma so much better. Mentally much clearer and happier. I NEED this cleanse to start feeling like “me” again. I’ve jumped off the bandwagon and crashed-n-burned hard this holiday and I’m not liking what I see or how I feel. I love Keto-Adapted and have referred it to many of my friends; some have embraced the lifestyle and have done quite well. Now it’s time for ME! I want 2017 to be my year for getting things right!! Thank you Maria for being you, educating us, standing firm against the SAD lies, and giving us all the materials we need to get our health back! 😘

  • Lara lahr says:

    I have was introduced to Keto by you and have been doing it 3 years. I haven’t fully gotten into a state of ketosis until I started using keto supplement. I am going to get this book though because I think I need to try your laid out plan. I absolutely love this lifestyle and will never go back to eating carbs. I love the endless energy and focus. I’m really wanting to get this last 10lb of fat off me though.

  • Sheila Hoch says:

    I know I feel so much better when I follow a keto lifestyle, but have a really hard time sticking with it. This book sounds like it could really help me jump start the keto way of eating. I need to get back on track to get some weight off before I start having health problems.

  • Shannon says:

    MY husband has reversed his type 2 diabetes and lowered his cholesterol. I have eliminated my IBs and we each have lost 30 pounds.

  • Faith Wolfe says:

    Eating this way is the only thing that has been successful in losing weight for me. Nothing else made more than a 5# dent in the 60#+ of fat that I need to burn.

  • Jana says:

    As a Registered Nurse I know a ketogenic way of eatting is the way our bodies were designed to live. Not knowing how to do it properly is difficult.

  • Cheryl Hulme says:

    I have successfully lost weight on a low carb diet, but have fallen off the wagon big time. I miss sleeping well and feeling good. I think your book and the Keto diet would help get me back on track and get me to where I need to be.

  • Sara says:

    I’d love to win this book. I have been a resistant keto follower for several months. I need to since I have type 1 diabetes but it always seems so overwhelming to get started. I’ve followed paleo and try to do lchf as much as possible.

  • Meaghan Lewis says:

    I was on keto for a few months, and did well but fell off bad. I lost 20 lbs but gained about 10 back. I need to get my mind right and after the 1st, it’s on again. Felt so much better when I was doing it. Other half said he wants to as well, so that’ll make things easier. I need this book! Either way I’m getting a copy. Thanks for all your hard work!

  • Becky Wilburn says:

    It would be an honor to win this, Maria! Your book quick and easy has helped me lose thirty pounds! And also to get my hypothyroidism under control. After a busy and stressful holiday season, I could use some help by way of a keto cleanse!!! Thanks for the opportunity! Good luck everyone!

  • Eleshia says:

    For the last 12 years I have suffered from endometriosis, PCOS, and infertility. My hormones have been so low, even with medications and treatments. This has caused me to have chronic insomnia and exhaustion. Every doctor I would go to would tell me that they’re not sure how to help, they had maxed me out on hormones, and I was still at levels lower than menopause.

    I have been following the keto diet for the last 3 months, and I am happy to say that my hormone levels are increasing! Slowly, but any increase is a miracle at this point.

    I would love to have another reboot through this book!

  • Karyn Paul says:

    My brother-in-law has MS and changed to a keto diet, he definitely feels a huge improvement in his health. My sister is now keto, and I’m working on my journey too.

    I successfully lost 10kg while eating Keto, I love that I can eat foods I love and I’m never hungry! I am enjoying my new found mental clarity, stable and higher energy levels as well as needing less sleep and waking up feeling amazingly rested. I would love to have a book that is easy to use and full of amazing recipes so that I can share this with my partner and he can take the steps to a healthier lifestyle.

  • Lani Kroemer says:

    How has a Ketogenic lifestyle affected me? I now have a Calcium score of zero! This is significant to me since I lost my mother to complications of Atherosclerosis. And as caregiver for my almost 95 year old dad, I have gotten him off all prescriptions (for heart disease and diabetes) and gotten his A1C score down. It is a wonderful lifestyle!

    I’ve been attempting keto and have more energy but still fall off the wagon. However, my 2 year old has a neurological condition that affects her daily, someone’s hourly.

My husband has been joining in and has lost several inches from his waist in just 2 weeks!

    Being on a Ketogenic Diet helps me stay at acceptable numbers with my diabetes. I would love this book to help me with a more focused approach.

  • SV says:

    I’ve used your recipes and supplement advice from your blog and earlier books, but keto has really remained elusive for me. I had a baby this year, and a book on keto sounds like a good way to get me started on my goals for the new year! I owe so much of my family’s good health to you already, and this would be a nice addition!

  • Petrina Cole says:

    I am trying to read as much as I can on the Keto way of eating and start January 1.
    My goal is to reduce carb bloating, reduce my dependence on daily medication for diabetes….and become a healthier person.

  • Rachel says:

    I need help getting back at it again! I used to eat the Maria way but stopped two years ago 😕

  • Heather says:

    My husband and I started the ketogenic lifestyle in June and I can honestly say we are new people. He was 375 and I was 240 and now we have collectively lost 120 pounds. I can’t tell you how we have grown together as a couple and have learned how strong we can be together. But most importantly? Food tastes glorious this way, better than before. We will never go back. Don’t even get me started about how our sex life has improved!

  • I’m losing weight for the first time in years, and I’m full of hope!!!

  • Crystal Copeland says:

    I haven’t tried this way of eating yet but I desperately need to do something. I am borderline diabetic and on medication for high cholesterol. In addition, I have thyroid problems that could benefit from a healthy lifestyle. I am severely overweight and so is my husband. We both need to do something in order for us to make it to my son’s graduation in 3 years. I’m concerned we might not with the way we are going. I would love to win your book and begin a new way of living. Doing a cleanse after all this holiday eating would be wonderful.

  • Joanne Jasinski says:

    My whole family is keto — it’s helped my husband’s triglycerides and cholesterol get to normal levels, my Hashimoto’s better controlled, my son’s ADHD better controlled, and my daughter’s juvenile arthritis go into remission. We love keto and always love to learn more every day!!!

  • Jolen S. says:

    Thank you so much for the inspiration.I look and feel like I’m in my 20’s now and I wish I would have asked you for more info when I first met you and I was actually in my 20’s!

    I now have less headaches, more energy, and look the way I want to.

  • Mary says:

    This would be the icing on the cake yo m Maria cookbook collection!

  • Judy says:

    Love your recipes! I’ve been moving lower in carbs in my diet for a while, but I haven’t fully tried to go ketogenic. But I think it might be a good choice for me. Both my mother & grandmother died with late stage Alzheimers and heart issues. They followed what was considered a “healthy diet” for their generations. Lots of whole grains before whole grain was even in style, and low fat. It was clearly the wrong answer. I hope to have a better outcome with the info surfacing about positive results with low carb eating. Would love to win your book!

  • Chasity Stewart says:

    I started Keto a couple months ago. My son was 6 months old and I hated how I looked but more importantly how I was feeling – bloated, irritable and always had heart palpitations. Within a week I started to feel better, had more energy and the palpitations were gone. I’ve lost 24lbs so far and have another 30 to go before being at my pre-pregnancy weight from 9 years ago. The baby weight excuse is getting old – my eldest is nearly ten! I worry I’m hitting a plateau and over the holidays but made some poor choices so I would love this book to get on track. I love how strong I am feeling and clear headed and I look forward to this journey and teaching my football boys about healthy living. My toddler has epilepsy and I hope this will help him too.

  • Lindsay says:

    My friend went Keto, she has lost weight and says she feels better than ever before!!! I want to try the lifestyle to manage my symptoms of fibromyalgia.

    My headaches and horrible acid indigestion have stopped since starting going Keto. Also, no more bloating, ever. It’s awesome.

  • Chasity Stewart says:

    My four boys lol…

  • Sebette says:

    Acid reflux, joint pain, etc etc etc. much improved. Need to tighten up though (eating that is).

    Tried many diets through the years, and been at a standstill with my weight for a while…hoping keto will get the scale moving and be the last way of eating I ever have to “try”

    I was keto a year ago and felt so much more focused. I’m looking forward to transitioning back into keto in another week or so!

  • Michelle MacLean says:


    I am not so good at staying focused when I plateau…I fall off the wagon. I feel sooooo good when I keto. My resolution is to keto and get back on the wagon right away if I slip up…. Does your book help with plateaus? Thanks!

  • April Hutchison says:

    Last yr I lost 40 lbs trying to eat healthier- trying a paleo type lifestyle. Rarely bread or dairy. Then I got away from it & started gaining some back. Your book looks really good. I believe in it. & desire to get more healthy once again & consistent. I do use essential oils.
