I was on my way back from a chilly morning run when my boys ran out to give me a big hug and yelled “It CAME! It CAME!” I knew right away that they were talking about my new book Keto Instant Pot Recipes! They get almost more excited than I do! I love that they understand and appreciate how much hard work and love goes into each book I write. They know I get up at 4:30am to write, edit, and test recipes. One morning I was up at 1:30am because my brain was filled with ideas!

This book was truly a labor of love. This book gave me something to focus on while Craig started his process of healing from Lyme Disease. This isn’t the first book that helped me deal with difficult times in life. One of my first self-published books, Keto Adapted, was written while we were in the process of adopting Micah and Kai. That book helped me get out of bed in the morning. I tend to find a project that makes me happy during hard times. You may think I am distracting myself from reality, but that’s not what I am doing. I embrace reality, but I also like to focus on something positive, something happy. There will always be something negative going on in our lives, but if we focus only on the negative, that wouldn’t be a very healthy way to live.

Keto Instant Pot Recipes cookbook has a ton recipes with BOTH Instant Pot directions AND slow cooker directions! I also started an Instagram account on my favorite Keto Instant Pot Recipes and giveaways called @KetoInstantPotRecipes where I post tips and tricks! 

Here is a little video to show you the inside of Keto Instant Pot Recipes book:

“I’m kind of hard headed. It takes a lot to get my attention. I was 398 pounds at my heaviest in 2010. I had struggled with my weight for most of my life, although I often saw myself as being bigger than I really was. Until I really was. I was unhappy and struggled with depression. Food was my everything. Of course in my mind, I didn’t see it correctly because it never betrayed me. It was there to make me “feel better”. Of course we know that’s a lie. But I wanted as much as I could get. I was struggling so hard with daily functioning. The toll on my body was horrid. I was so ashamed of myself that I neglected self and annual exams for years. My shame was stronger than my sense of self preservation. I was literally killing myself, one bite at a time.

Every night I went to bed with my feet propped up on pillows were in tennis shoes to try to control the swelling in my feet. One night before I crawled into bed I sat at the end of my bed to change the channel on my TV. Then I got into bed and indulged in my nightly routine as I fed my face, with my feet propped up. I was curious about the lights that were shining on my wall and the noise that I was hearing. Suddenly there was a huge crash as a car came careening into my bedroom through the glass door, coming to rest at the foot of my bed. The car stop where I had been sitting only 5 minutes earlier to change the channel on my TV. The force of the crash pushed the TV through the wall into the adjoining Room, took out the back half of my house and shattered the glass doors all around me. I was not injured come I was literally untouched. So protected. Despite my own self destructing behavior, my life was spared.

I didn’t quite get it yet I didn’t understand the bigger picture. My family was displaced for a couple of months will our house was fixed. It was very stressful, and I of course continue to eat to deal with the stress. And gained more weight. We moved back into our house the week before Christmas. We were so excited. The following Sunday I was on my way to church when someone ran a red light and totaled my car. Can I just say what is it with me in cars, seriously!? I mean had my been through enough already. I was so upset and now I didn’t even feel safe anymore in my own home or out on the road. The airbag deployed in my car so I was forced to go to the hospital because of the airbag. I wasn’t hurt though, at all. I didn’t wanna go but they made me. They put me on a stretcher with a neck brace. At the hospital they took X race. They came into the Room and said the x-rays looked fine but that they needed to do a cat scan. They were concerned though because they thought that my weight my cause me to break the cat scan table. I can’t tell you all the feelings I had at moment. Of defeat, anger, shame and humiliation to name a few. I need to get out of there as fast as I could so I refused the test and sign out against medical advice. I went home and made no changes. So now it had 2 major incidents that should have got my attention. But they didn’t.

About a month later I was driving through my neighborhood and saw a local advertisement at the multi care for a weight loss program they were running. It was called the biggest winner. Something caught my attention and I decided to enroll in their program thinking that if I tried something medically supervised maybe that would help me because I done everything else in my life time. I enrolled in the program. It was hard because nothing in my thought process had changed. But once I decided to take the steps, God moved. He sent people to me who helped me to see that I could learn to love myself. That he loved me. That I was valued and had a place in the world. And that I was worthy. Once I was able to receive these truths and substitute them for the lies I had believed, it put me on a path to healing like none other. This literally gave my body permission to do what it wanted to do and to lose weight. I was dealing with my being in mind, body and spirit. So our weight loss program had teams in of course we were competing and exercise was part of the program. I hated it come a people like me didn’t go to gyms. I felt the pressure of my teammates to participate but couldn’t make myself go to the gym at 1st so I started moving in my living Room by playing tennis on my WI. I eventually gave in and went to the local YMCA for Zuma class. My life changed again, it was the 1st time I’d ever participated in exercise that I actually enjoyed. Man this is such a long story. Sorry.

So when I did Zumba, I got to work out of the privacy of the gym. Until that day when the before picture was taken that you saw on my post. They were hosting a community event and the class was being held outside in the parking lot with vendors and citizens to see. If you could imagine a little devil and an angel one on each shoulder having an argument with my mind about pursuing or giving up because everybody would see me that’s what happened. I fought so hard against the voices that told me to go home because everyone would see the fat girl dancing. I knew I couldn’t give in so I stayed and did the class with everyone in the parking lot. Multi care partnered with the YMCA. That day was our last day of free membership. After class I would inside to sign up to become an official member at the gym. When I went inside some buddy who worked there told me they had been watching me and enjoyed watching me dance they said I did well. They had no idea that they had spoken to a dream that had been inside my heart and I had never verbalized it. I wanted to be a Zumba instructor. That was it come and I had a dream and it came to life. Nine months later I was an instructor. My classes were outstanding because I needed my Zumba students as much as they needed me. It was all about community just like Maria and Craig’s Keto group is!

Life happens, I had to drop the teaching to take on full time work and some life events challenged me and I began to slip back into old patterns. I imagine on some level I might struggle for the rest of my life. But I have found such a sense of support and community here at Maria and Craig’s Keto Facebook Group. I have broken some lifelong bad habits and found something that will sustain me and I’m so grateful for each and every one of you. My story, is still being written. But I can tell you that the glow that someone referred to on my face is what happens when you learn to love yourself and if you can’t do that nothing else really matters.” – Jackie

    Keto has changed my life. I was overweight and so unhappy. I had tried everything to lose weight and nothing worked. I have PCOs and had recently Been diagnosed with Diabetes and was feeling hopeless. Since finding and researching keto, I am happy to say I have lost 70 pounds but more importantly my health has made a dramatic improvement. All of my biometric numbers have improved. My A1C is no longer considered that of a diabetic and I feel great. For me this is not a diet, this is a complete lifestyle change. My husband is starting to eat this way as are my kids. Thank you so much Maria for providing my family with the tools to help save our lives. 💜


    Love your books and can’t wait to try the recipes in my new Instant Pot!

  • Bonnie says:

    Keto has helped my daughter’s seizures to stop.

    • Laurel says:

      Really?! I am looking into the Keto lifestyle for my daughter who began to have seizures within the last 6 months. This is very encouraging!

  • Nancy Gordon says:

    The Keto diet has changed a lifetime struggle with diet, blood pressure, and issues with diabetes. My entire family struggles with diabetes. I have fought for 68 years through a healthy lifestyle to prevent this. Living a vegetarian life however, led me straight down that path. After living a Keto lifestyle for the past 3 years, both my husband and I reversed our HbA1C and CRP. We now are totally normal, no need for insulin, my husband came off his cholesterol meds, and best ever, we are never Hungary! So excited to receive my pre-ordered Keto Insta Pot Recipe book and get started on another one of Maria’s amazing cookbooks. We have them all. I have a small insta pot that we love to use. Would love to own a larger one. Happy Holidays to everyone.

  • Melissa Locke says:

    Keto has been amazing. I have my energy back and don’t need to rely on coffee at the 2:30 pm crash. Because I don’t have the crash. I’m excited to see what this instant pot and recipes can help with

  • Danica Benson says:

    I’ve been diabetic since I was only 8 months old. I’m 39 now and the insulin resistance you develop in that amount of time is insane, especially when you add things like pcos to the mix. I haven’t lost much weight (we suspect cushings, yay), but I went on this diet almost a year ago to help control blood sugar and hopefully take less insulin. It helped with both of those things almost immediately. I still get 5 shots a day and that probably won’t ever change but each of those injections is less than HALF the size that it was. That’s a big deal when insulin is $600 a box or more and you don’t have insurance! On top of that most of the fibro/cushings symptoms I had have vanished and I feel more like a human being than a zombie now. It’s disappointing that the weight is still there but I wouldn’t go back to feeling the way I did before for anything in the world. It’s nice to finally have the energy to do things with my kid! 🙂


    My husband and I have both lost weight and I have cut way back on my medications.

A few months into keto I started noticing a tremendous improvement in my overall health. I lost weight, gained mental clarity, my mood improved and I had so much energy. The best part was going to see my doctor and finding out that my blood sugar had normalized as did my cholesterol levels!

  • Suzanne Reinhardt says:

    I definitely feel better through the day on Keto. I’m still getting into it but expecting more good stuff to come.

  • Sheri Fogarty says:

  • Paul says:

    Keto has made it so easy for me to control my Type 1 Diabetes.

  • Deb says:

    I’ve lost weight on low-carb; don’t know for sure if I’m “keto”, but I’ve certainly benefited from going low carb – easy weight loss, more energy, no gerd, no hunger pains, less knee pain, less allergy symptoms, less gastrointestinal issues, etc. Maria’s cookbooks have helped with ideas on what to eat, and how to convert old carby favorites to less carbs. Thanks! And Merry Christmas! And best wishes for a happy, healthy and successful New Year!

    The Ketogenic lifestyle has helped me loose the weight that stuck to me with a vengeance after menopause. The anti-aging doctor told me to loose 25 pounds and I lost 35. Dropped from a size 14 to a size 8, and lowered my A1c and CRP to a healthy, normal range. The food is delicious and totally satisfies me thanks to Maria’s many awesome recipes. Looking forward to adding my pre-ordered copy of Instant Pot recipes to my collection.

  • SherBear says:

    I really want to start following the Keto diet 100% now. I watched my sister drop 100 pounds doing this diet last year. I’ve always had a problem with my weight growing up as a kid. The heaviest I weighed was 381 pounds back in high school. I yo-yo’d with diets all my life. It wasn’t until I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis about 15 years ago that I changed my eating habits. I went gluten, sugar and dairy-free and was able to lose 139 pounds. Since the weight loss, my weight loss has fluctuated up and down about 20 pounds. I would love to get the 20 pounds off, but more importantly, I want to FEEL BETTER. That’s what I took home from my sister’s experience with this lifestyle change.

    I have experimented with Keto recipes — including yours, Maria — and I have really enjoyed them. I also pre-ordered your new instant pot book that will be released shortly. I need to keep off my feet as much as I can because of the mobility issues, fatigue and pain. The instant pot is my lifesaver for meals. I look forward to receiving your cookbook so I can get started eating well and feeling better. Thanks for creating such a wonderful cookbook!

  • Rebecca Greer says:

    I love getting your emails everyday! Keto has helped my husband get off his asthma meds, has helped his psoriasis, and has given him so much more energy. Keto has helped me with almost completely cutting out my migraines from a daily occurrence (now I only get them a couple times a month) and my back pain from a major surgery I had when I was 15 (assuming because I don’t have the extra pounds). keto has also helped my 2nd child with his anger outbursts and has helped him to focus more!

  • Christine says:

    Keto is amazing! My inflammation is gone; no more aches and pains! And I’ve lost some weight. That is a WIN!!!

  • We know several couples who have had great success with keto. We got bloodwork done and informed our doctors of our intent to do the same, primarily for weight loss but also to reduce cholesterol and diabetes risk. In about 7 weeks my husband is down almost 20 pounds and I’ve lost a little over 10. Not the dramatic effects we were hoping for, but this is the first diet we’ve been able to stick to — no cheating at all! The Keto Adapted site — and many others — have really helped us in making better choices and learning how to reverse all of the dietary advice we’d been fed for years.

  • Brenda Speer says:

    Keto foods have helped heal my gut and digestive issues and helped my husband with chronic inflammation issues! We will continue the Keto Diet!
    I would love to win the Instant Pot…. I don’t have one and there are so many great Instant Pot KETO recipes that I really want to try in the New Healthy 2019 Year! ❤❤

  • Jaye says:

    I haven’t been strictly on the Keto diet for very long, as I am the sole caregiver of my 90+ year old father who wants to eat the quick-feed carbs we’ve grown up on, or by the time I fix his dinner (with potatoes), I don’t feel like making mine. But what I’ve tried, I liked.

  • Robin says:

    So many friends have benefited from doing Keto the right way. They have gone into remission with their diseases, off meds, and weight loss!😁. I am just starting this journey…so we will see!😉

    I have no idea what to cook in my instant pot. I’m kinda nervous. Does anyone have a suggestion? I started doing keto and low carb to help with my T1 diabetes – lost a few pounds and it keeps my blood sugars in a better range. Thanks for your work Maria and Craig!

  • Pamela Wright says:

    I am waiting for the Instant Pot book! I pre ordered a while back, the 18th can’t come fast enough! That makes 6 books by Maria & Craig I now own, I love her recipes.

  • BJ says:

    I am so anxious to recieve the Keto Instant Pot Cookbook!..Wow I have a collection and value them all highly. Ordering the Keto Comfort Food along with it.

Thanks Maria and Craig for all your information to help me stay on the right path to healthiness.

  • Becky says:

    Its helping with my blood sugar and weight loss, which in turn is helping with other numbers. I was classified as prediabetic and I am not interested in taking prescription meds as opposed to working on it through diet and lifestyle changes.

  • The Keto diet has really helped me heal after being diagnosed with Celiac. No more bloated and painful digestion. Thank you Maria! Your recipes are amazing!

  • Wendy says:

    I have just recently started Keto in hopes that it will help with all of my diagnoses…MS, Lyme, Fibromyalgia, and Epstein Bar. I keep hearing how amazing the Instapot is and I think I should get one to try and help with getting meals made. I love to cook! But my energy levels are pretty tapped out by the end of the day! Maybe I will get some luck and be the winner of this giveaway. Thank you for all you do to help people. Blessings to you and your family!

  • Malorie Nilson says:

    Have been ketonadapted for three years now. I dropped 60 lbs. feel way better, my gut issues are way better on Keto, and my mental clarity is so much better. The even better thing is that my husband has experienced the same benefits. ☺️

  • Angela says:

    Keto has helped my husband use a very minimal amount of insulin in the management of his T1D.

  • May says:

    Keto helped bring my inflammation down during an elimination diet period in my healing journey. I still do Keto resets to help with my conditions. I do it intuitively.

  • Wendy says:

  • Linda Hardman says:

    Keto has helped me and my autoimmune illness so much. I have POTS. I no longer have digestive issues every time I eat. I’ve lost 44 pounds and I feel healthier. Chronic fatigue is still a battle but I feel so much better with this woe. I’ve met so many amazing people along my journey. One of which is Nancy Childress. She my angel. Without her I would be lost. She has taught me so much about this lifestyle. I’m forever grateful.

  • Kathy Heiner says:

    Been on my keto journey for almost a year now. Still have a llittle way to go, but my health is improving more all the time. I am feeling better and have more energy than I have had in over ten years. I look forward to reading your newsletter. Thank you for the give-away!

  • Penny says:

    I am in love with your mini pumpkin muffins. They keep me on track with low carb and satisfies the bread I still desire. Thank you for all you do.

  • Jeff Bowman says:

    I haven’t started the KETO project yet; I’m very much looking forward to receiving my copy of the new cookbook.

    But I HAVE lost 40 pounds by drinking a daily dilution of apple cider vinegar:

    1 cup warm water (it goes down easier when warm)
    1 tablespoon BRAGG apple cider vinegar (always use the good stuff)
    1 tablespoon fresh-squeezed lemon juice
    1 teaspoon local raw honey
    ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
    ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
    ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper

    Yes, it’s bitter—but it’ll grow on you after a while 🙂

    My sister has been doing Keto for about a year and most of her health problems have subsided, which I find pretty inspiring to try it myself.

  • Claire Moniz says:

    Wow,how exciting. Keto is now my middle name.

  • Sandra Bixby says:

    I was introduced to Keto by my sister about 6 years ago because she was following you. I was so sick with inflammation and other health issues until I started healing the Keto way with your cookbooks, blog and recipes. My life has completely changed! Thankyou so much for all that you do!

  • Jenny McDonald says:

    This is something I can really stick with. I started down this path a few years ago, and felt so much better! I have more energy and am sleeping amazingly well. Thanks!

    Keto has helped me lose 25 pounds, get off a medication and lose arthritis pain. It’s the best food plan!

Crossing my fingers and toes!

  • Kathleen Camara says:

    I have finally got my husband on board, since his doctor told him he is pre-diabetic. The doctor was going to give him meds, but I convinced him to give me 3 months of eating KETO using Maria’s books. He agreed. We are now doing the 30 day cleanse, and my husband has lost some weight, but he also feels better. He told me that he likes this way of eating, and he’s even helping me cook and stay in line with the keto diet, too. Thank you so much Maria & Craig, for giving us such great recipes that enable us to stay Keto. I would love to have the 8 Qt. Instant Pot so I can double recipes, like Breakfast Chili. I am anxiously awaiting the new Instant Pot Cookbook.

  • Derek Miller says:

    My wife and I have both lost weight with keto. It can be a challenge to create new recipes.

    Keto has helped with my weight loss and gave me more energy. I also find I’m not as hungry as before because my diet isn’t carb heavy.

  • Tonia Dorr says:

    Keto is a way of life for us, not just a diet. I have normal blood sugar levels for the first time in 20 years, have lost from size very snug 10 to a 2, my husband has lost 98# so far and we both feel great!! Its so easy to stick to this way of life, knowing how we feel health wise if we cheat. I like having normal blood sugar levels too much to ever go back to the SAD way of eating. Thanks so much Craig and Maria for your timeless help and love for all of us. 🙂

  • Chuck B. says:

    I’m not one for long tearjerking testimonials. I will keep it simple. I’ve lost 50 pounds and after 15 years of seeing an endocrinologist I saw him last week and he said “You don’t have diabetes. You don’t have anything.“ So no more Metformin for me! Your 30-day Keto Cleanse was the first Keto cookbook I picked up. Thank you for all the great Keto information you included. I’m a scientist so seeing the facts helped me make up my mind to commit to a Keto lifestyle and I’m so thankful for the time and energy you put into all your cookbooks. I’m amazed – I certainly don’t feel that I’m on a diet. Thank you, Mariah! ❤️

  • Carol says:

    I feel so much better eating Keto. I sleep better and the chronic cough that I’ve had for years is gone! Now I just need the extra weight to go as well.

  • Gwen says:

    I am having a hard time starting Keto again. I lost 30 lbs and then gained it all back plus 40 more. What is the best way to get on the wagon?

  • Candy B Wawro says:

    Better eating habits overall.

  • Kathy says:

    Feel so much better when I follow a Keto diet.

  • Sonya says:

    Started Keto as a 30 day challenge now I cant go back to eating like I did before without noticing the old issues I had come back. Sinus issues, thyroid issues, no energy, bloat, no weight loss but weight gain. I cannot see myself going back to a non-Keto lifestyle ever again.

  • Kellie says:

    Keto has helped my whole family to eat better and be more aware of what we are eating.

  • Carly E. says:

    Keto has helped me in so many ways! It has helped me not only lose weight but it has helped me get off all my medications for anxiety. Depression, and adhd! I am able to not feed my anxiety and depression with food. Instead I workout! I thank you Maria and Craig for helping me learn to cook and love food and myself again!

  • Wendy says:

    After struggling with the symptoms of menopause for 20, I was astonished that the keto diet as explained by Maria and Craig actually worked! No more digestive issues, allergies, clogged sinuses, swollen ankles, etc. I truly love all the food I eat on this plan! My mother fed me this way when I was growing up and I thrived. I always felt that there was something not quite right about the low-fat fad, but, the more you’re told something, the more you believe it, even if it’s dead wrong! Thank God for Maria and Craig, for giving us the truth about food, our bodies and the lies we’ve been told by the food industry, drug companies, etc. I’m spreading the word to everyone I know. There’s a lot of resistance because of what we’ve been told for the last 50 years, but I’ll never stop!! Thank you for everything!!!

  • Becky says:

    Keto saved my life. Radiation treatment for cancer damaged my lungs and left me with 20% function. Keto made my breathing easier and stronger… I became a functioning person thanks to keto. OH and I was able to stop all meds except for 1 inhaler. After 6 years, I am in need of a new Instant Pot – just thought I would let y’all know. LOL

  • Juli says:

    Keto helped me lose weight and improve my health.

  • Kristen says:

    The Keto Diet has helped me lose weight and feel so much better. My stomach doesn’t bother me all the time now and I feel stronger and better about myself. I’m also more confident.

  • Patricia says:

    I am not fully keto but very low carb. It really helps me maintain my weight. Thanks.

  • Kelly D says:

    Keto helps me focus on eating healthier.

  • Jennifer Zimmerman says:

    Starting the keto lifestyle has been amazing, i started in April 2018 & have lost 20 lbs & have maintained my goal weight since, which in the past has been extremely hard for me to do. I have done certain other diets where I would loose weight but end up gaining it back once I was off strict protocol. I also would suffer from debilitating headaches at least 3-4 times a month. Those have gone. And when I wake up in the morning, i can literally fly out of bed instead of being so stiff that i felt like frankenstein for the first 20 minutes of the morning. People send me messages on reports of how negative the Keto Diet is for your body but how can you deny how great you feel when your on it!! And how can you deny that I still am eating vegetables & meat along with the healthy fats i love!! So my reponse to those people is to write down for one day the carbs they are taking in just from dressings, sauces, processed foods & see for themselves the extra carbs they take in. Thank You Maria for sharing your knowledge & giving such great recipes!! You are an inspiration!! God Bless!!

  • Edye says:

    It has helped my body get healthier.

  • Maria Elena says:

  • Wendy N says:

    Keto has helped get my diabetes under control!

  • Christina Wanner says:

    Maria, I love your recipes. I have lost 17 pounds on keto so far. In so many ways, keto is the easiest plan I have ever done. I have been overweight my entire life and started going on diets at 10 years old. I have tried everything and I would only be successful for a short time even though I was diligently following the program. On keto I am not hungry and the constant cravings are gone. I am now trying to implement Keto for the rest of the family.

  • Dawn says:

    I have personally lost about 40 pounds.

  • Melissa C says:

    My husband was overweight and on the verge of getting diabetes. The doctors warned him he needed to lose weight. so late one night I did some research, and discovered the Keto Diet. My husband agreed to try out the Keto diet and it has been a lifesaver to date he has lost 60 pounds and is still going strong! I decided to join him on his journey so he was not alone and I lost 27 pounds so far!

  • Erin says:

    My husband & I both love keto. Over the past year we’ve both lost weight, sleep better, and have more energy. Following a keto diet is easy, and there are so many amazing food choices.
    Thank you Maria for sharing so many great recipes through your books, and blog.

  • Shay says:

    Keto has helped me gain my self-respect back. I have found a way of eating that I don’t even have the urge to cheat on.

  • Ann Gaudet says:

    Keto has helped my family so much!
    My husband was in a serious car crash two years ago and suffered a brain injury. I am an ER nurse and needless to say I know the conventional therapies are wonderful but adding the Keto way of life to our regime has proven to be very effective adjunct therapy for my husband’s brain injury and also to our entire family.
    Not only helping my husband heal and improve cognitionc but also with myself. I work in a high stress ER Department and work a rotating shift schedule of early days, late evenings and night shifts. Some days we don’t even get to eat for 12 or more hours. Hello, intermittent fasting!
    I now have tons of energy and can go, go, go all day or night as my job requires, I sleep better, I have lost weight, my migraine headaches are pretty much non existent , (Bye bye prescription medications that made me feel horrible and loose my hair!! ) I don’t crave coffee like a crazed animal and no more post carb slump! My husband has improved so much he is back to work on modified duties and making gains to this day.
    Many of you may not know but they give folks with traumatic brain injuries two years for rehabilitation gains and then decide that the brain is finished healing. Well in our case Keto is proving them wrong!
    Thanks Maria and Craig, we are truly blessed and grateful that you share your lifestyle with us.

  • Kristina says:

  • Lisa Hayes says:

    Me to has helped one of my greatest friends that’s tried everything until her Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Dr told her to try me to, she feels the very best she ever has and because I have same conditions she does can’t help to think I can be helped too, I’m super excited about this generous giveaway as it would help having the instapot in life as I can’t stand over the stove anymore and haven’t been able for over two yrs, my digestion issues declined after gallbladder removed and it took over a yr to find the right digestive enzymes for me. So now I can finally keep some nutrition in my body, I’ve wasted away, long way to go plus I have a broken fusion in my cervical spine and can’t travel to the N.Y.Dr who said could help all because of this stupid gut… thank you..

  • Sherri Cash says:

    I started Keto a little over 2 years ago. I have lost and kept off 50 lbs. I have lowered my A1c to 5.1 and am no longer considered diabetic and don’t have to take Metformin, that hateful drug. I have energy to spare and never, ever want to go back to my old way of life!

  • Jackie says:

    I was pretty strict with Keto at the beginning of 2018. I didn’t lose much weight and then I started traveling a lot for my job. That totally blew my way of eating. I plan to start back after the holidays. Thank you for the chance to win an instant pot. I just purchased 3 of your cookbooks -the third (Keto Instant Pot) is on its way.

  • Sarah Schrickel says:

    The Keto diet has helped me lose over 30 lbs without any exercise. It has healed my aches and pains and has given me a new outlook on what the true path to health is. Food does matter! I love Maria’s books, they are so helpful. The recipes are so good!

  • I’ve been suffering from severe chronic pain (from arthritis and a degenerative bone disease) and was in almost constant pain. I started keto and 2 and half months in? No pain. I’ve suffered from depression/anxiety/ptsd for most of my life – everything and I mean everything is more manageable. By Gods grace I was able to find out about this diet and I am so grateful for the drastic changes that have occurred since

  • Debi mager says:

    A year ago, I wore a continuous glucose monitor and carried a glucagon pen with me. I’m hypoglycemic and would suddenly drop to high 20s or low 30s without notice. I’d have to inject the glucagon. I’ve been on countless diets, tons of meds, been to I don’t know how many drs, specialists, and dietitians. I found keto on my own, researched for a couple months and decided the Emmerich approach was the one I would try. I was shocked by how well it worked, and how FAST. I told my dr, who researched it, and she is thrilled with my results. I no longer wear the continuous glucose monitor. I haven’t been below 50 in at least 6 months. I have a life. I can travel. I’m not afraid any longer.
    I’ve already looked the fb keto, but don’t have Instagram.

    I have ALL of your books and review them frequently! Thanks for all your hard work!


    Help me to heal from thyroid issues and get healthy. Weight loss is a bonus, but inner healing of disease is the ultimate reason Keto is the best.

  • Stefanie Benke says:

    I love keto! I even more love Maria’s keto!! The food is delicious, the whole family loves it. My only regret is not finding this WOE before my dad passed from liver failure. High BP and high cholesterol medication were to contribute to his liver failure and it was too late for transplant by the time we caught it. His doctors the whole time told him substitute butters low fat milk. But I always stood strong on what type of foods I liked and believed in. I always wanted to eat and cook like my great grandmother. Steak and eggs, whole milk and cheese some nuts when available. I always said to my father, there is a reason a ancestors lived long healthy lives. Never did I ever imagine it would become a real life style that was actually beneficial to me. This is the way we were meant to eat. I feel satisfied,full and energized at the end and beginning of everyday. Keto is a blessing to my life. Not to my weight loss goal yet, but I don’t ever see a reason to give up. Thanks for everything!

  • Brande Waldron says:

    You are amazing! I also just stared following you in Instagram too.

  • Terry L Noey says:

    I can’t wait to try recipes in the new Keto Instapot cookbook. I will write a review for it too. Love all these books and really appreciate all the hard work you and Craig have done for all of us.

  • Katherine says:

    Been working my way to full time keto, I’ve felt much better doing low carb and gluten free

  • Sara says:

    After years of pre-diabetes on my medical chart it took an A1C reading that flagged me as diabetic to take the issue seriously. While waiting for the next round of diabetes nutrition classes to begin I accidentally discovered low carb while doing my own research. By the time I actually got into those classes I was 3 weeks into low carb and starting to learn about keto. I did everything opposite of what I was being taught by the nutritionists and had my blood sugar under control. Keto living reversed my type 2 diabetic diagnosis. Weight loss, improved mood and greater energy levels are added bonuses.

My husband no longer deals with constant arthritis pain, as well as my 10 year old son who was born with arthritis. IT HAS CHANGED OUR LIVES!!! Oh…and the 60+ pound weight loss isn’t too bad either! 😉 Thank you, Maria and Craig, for all that you do!

  • Christine says:

    No more prescription pain medication, no Pepcid, more flexible, over 47 pounds of fat gone. 62 years old and this is the first eating plan I’ve been able to stick to for over a month – almost 8 months now. Would love to win an instant pot!

  • Grace Onorato says:

    Keto has absolutely changed my life! I am about to turn 40 in February and I knew I had to change my unhealthy lifestyle, but no diet has ever worked for me, until now. This has slowly become a way of life that I will never give up. I am 8 weeks in and down 20 lbs, 2 sizes and a huge amount of inches. Thank you for all of your amazing recipes that have helped make this journey a little easier!!!!

  • Laurie says:

    Im enjoying your blog and all the info.Thanks

  • Melanie Beaudoin says:

    I have been on my Keto journey for about 9 months now (and my sister on and off throughout that). As a gluten and dairy sensitive individual with an allergy to most sweeteners, its been an interesting road. I have LOVED how Maria’s recipes always include how to leave out common allergies including dairy and eggs right in the recipe so there’s no guessing on how to modify or stopping cooking to Google how to swap something out. I have her quick and easy, dairy free, and now her instapot cookbooks. I haven’t found a recipe my picky sister hasn’t liked and am usually making at least two of her recipes per week. Thanks to Keto we’ve been able to come off hormone meds and birth control and are learning how to heal our bodies so they can regulate themselves by what we eat (or don’t eat) and other lifestyle choices. Thank you!!!!!

    Keto has changed my life ! I have lost 30 pounds in 3 months and my husband is doing it as well. My college age daughter is now jumping on board. It is a lifestyle for me and my whole family! Never felt better!

  • Stephanie says:

    I started Keto on Jan 2, 2018 and I’ve lost 55 lbs (60 more to go!) and I’m off all medicines but thyroid. Dr said I may be able to come off of it as I continue to lose. No more joint pain. Healthy A1C and reversed PCOS. My son decided to join me me and he has lost 43 lbs and looks amazing! Several of my family members have embraced Keto and are getting healthy. My nephew has Crohns and his inflammation is going down! Keto for life!

  • Allison says:

    Keto has helped me battle some pretty powerful bingeing cravings, as I’ve been doing a low calorie diet for over 7 years, and I’ve wrecked my metabolism. I also developed an autoimmune disorder that led to the loss of my two children at 20 weeks and landed me in the ICU fighting for my life for 6 weeks unknown how I would or if I would recover. Although I’m unable to get pregnant at this time, I’ve bounced back in every other way! I’m hoping to use keto to heal the rest of my body and bring my hormones into correct alignment.

  • Dawn Kingston says:

    I’ve had post herpetic trigeminal neuralgia for 18 years. Ugh! I have thought it changed my metabolism, but I am now finding out I was most likely insulin resistant. I also realized carbs caused me pain and inflammation. I’ve been keto for 4-5 months and I feel soooooooo much better. Thanks for your wisdom. I want to do the healthiest version if keto and you provide that. Thanks!

  • Maria Ballon says:

    I’ve lost 60 lbs on keto. I feel amazing, and cant believe the transformation sometimes. I live it. And your cookbooks are aewsome!

  • Amy Crawford says:

    I have lost 60 pounds with keto and decreased so much inflammation in my body. Even my feet are a smaller size! I feel better and look younger! My immune system is strong and was the only person to avoid the flu in my household last year and I know it’s because I’m eating whole foods and not processed crap. I would say I no longer obsess over food but I do kind of obsess over finding awesome keto recipes and Maria’s cookbooks are my go-to cuz they are hands down the best!

  • Michele Holt says:

    Love Keto it has helped me gain back my energy and get slimmer! Thank you for this giveaway! I shared this on my Facebook but it won’t let me tag you until you accept my joining your fab group.

  • Debbie Graff says:

    Keto has helped me loose 70 pounds over this past year, given me more energy, taken away 20 years of back pain. The food is delicious and the more I read about the healing benefits of keto, it has become a way of eating for me and my family, not just a diet. I don’t have an instant pot or the cookbook yet. This would be great to add to my keto kitchen!

  • Michelle says:

    I feel so much better when eating Keto lifestyle. I can tell the difference when I cheat.

  • Michele Holt says:

    I have tried to leave a comment and I shared The post on Facebook but it won’t let me tag the keto adapted group I don’t know what to tag? And my comment on this page won’t show up I don’t know what to do I’d like to win this I love keto and I’m very interested in the Insta pot part of it. Help

  • Teresa Andrews says:

    I am in week 8 of Keto. It has been life changing for me. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2016. My sugar levels are now normal and my blood pressure has lower significantly (down to 1/4 of a pill from 2). I have only lost 7 pounds, but my body definitely looks like I have lost so much more. I have never felt so amazing!

  • Candi says:

    I have tried Keto in the past and it was great, but I’ve since fallen off the wagon and am trying to get back on! I think having some family recipes that are quick and easy to get on the table will help out tremendously.

  • Daniela says:

    Keto has completely changed my over all energy levels. I have developed serious food sensitivities. My stomach was always bloated and crampy and since keto i have felt lighter and pain free.

  • Jenae Laxson says:

    Like many people Keto helped me break through my weight loss stall, but what it’s helped me with the most is my Lyme Disease. I was recently diagnosed with chronic late stage, as well as early stage Lyme disease. I always knew that I was ill. I didn’t know with what I just had a gut feeling. I had to endure the taunting, teasing, and bullying that came along with doing keto and not being visibly sick. I made it though and now that I know I am so glad I stuck with it and didn’t let the nay sayers discourage me. I do not want to think of where I would be if I hadn’t gone paleo and then keto.

  • Melissa says:

    My husband and I started Keto in August. He has lost 55+ lbs and I have lost 30+. Losing weight is great but the best part is feeling better than I have in years. I have so much more energy and focus. As a Keto newbie I really appreciate those who have gone before and have done all the work of adapting favorite foods to be Keto friendly. It is becoming clear that Keto is not a diet but a lifestyle and mindset change. I am excited to be able to teach my daughter this new way of eating and living and would love to have an InstaPot.

  • carrie miyake says:

    My husband and I are still fairly new to the keto way of eating. I started to drop a few pounds but also to show him it wasn’t as hard as it sounded and motivate him to try it too. He has a few health concerns that really hit home with me after his dad passed. He was pre-diabetic, had high blood pressure and fatty liver. I wanted to see if we could help these issues improve with a food change so that he would be around long enough to see our daughter grow. So far so good! We have both lost about 20 pounds each and feel great. Looking forward to continuing our journey to a healthier and happier family.

  • Susan says:

    I love having more energy and no pain from Inflammation

  • Nina Alles says:

    My sister lost about 50 lbs following a Keto diet. Her son suffers with epilepsy and found some reduction of seizures with it as well. Now I’m trying to follow it and my cholesterol LDL and total numbers have improved.

  • Amanda W. says:

    My husband and I have been keto since June 1st and have lost 55 and 45 pounds respectively. I have never felt better in my life. Even better than in my 20s! I like your site because you have such good info and I can feel confident referring my friends interested in keto to your website.

    I started this WOE at the end of June. I feel so much better as long as I stay away from the junk food and eat KETO. Thank you Maria and Craig for everything you do. Thank you for being true to Keto and not making it a fad!

  • Carol Germain says:

    Eating keto had made me realize that I don’t have to eat all day. I can have a keto breakfast and then I don’t have to eat until supper. Not because I am denying myself food. I am busy not hungry. It is amazing.

  • Krista Cantrell says:

    I am ready to restart my keto journey!!
