BAILEY’S KITCHEN Fat Bombs
I have met many people throughout my journey and one family really stands out… the Bailey Family. Not only is the wife on the keto diet, her husband, her young children and her father is a huge supporter!
Here is her dad’s testimony:
“Maria, Thank You!
Scariest moment I had in 1992 is sitting in the Doctor’s Office and having him say, “You’re a Diabetic and you need to be on medications.” After I retired in 1994, I started to have more medical issues, High Cholesterol and High Blood Pressure and my weight ballooned to almost 300 pounds just to add to my misery. I lived with more problems than I could imagine and they just kept piling up. I stopped exercising, couldn’t lose weight, I had a persistent cough that caused visual blackouts (once while driving), muscle pains as if I had the flu aching all over my body and to top it all the last 10 years I started to notice head shakes and memory loss. To be honest, medically I was unsure of myself and did not no where to turn or what to do. I was sick for over 20 years.
So, my daughter and my wife started scheming and eventually started an intervention. It was extreme. My daughter flew home for a month and did the cooking and my wife and I started our extreme diet called HCG. It worked after 30 days and I lost 40 pounds. Tons of reactions that once again scared me as my body started to react badly to the medications I was taking. I finally got off diabetes medications as my weight came off. So where is the problem…I didn’t know how to keep the weight off. That is when my daughter introduced me to Maria Emmerich and now my life really started to change. Not only did I keep my weight off but I learned so much about how my body reacts to foods.
Now I made it a priority in my life to learn about how my body works, how food works in the body and what it does. I always use Maria as my base of knowledge because of her explanation of the human biology and information that guides me towards the information I need to fix myself. Here recipes and books have really helped me. This may sound dumb, I had to learn how to eat again. I needed to learn how to take care of my body. I obviously had not know this because if I did, I would like to think I would have never got myself into this mess in the first place.
I must say, as an extreme reaction to hitting bottom HCG was a huge part of my weight loss but Maria, you were crucial in my understanding and learning about health and how to keep it off. It has now been over 4 years that I have kept my weight stable. I have kept to low carbs, moderate proteins and a large part of my normal days is good fats. As of this month February 2014 and for over 22 years of illness with Hypertension Diabetes, and High Cholesterol, I am drug free. Thank You Maria. You have been instrumental in helping save my life.” – Ruben M. Peña Sr.
The Bailey’s have now started a super cute line of candy molds on Amazon. If you would like to support an amazing family, click HERE to find the candy molds I love!
If you would like to get a look into their family a little more, here is a cute story from Mrs. Bailey:
“A funny moment to you though that makes me so proud. My husband and I are stubborn. Sometimes we fall off the wagon and mistreat our bodies with food. But the one thing I have not caved in is giving my children garbage food.
On a recent trip to WV to visit my family my almost 4 year old son was in desperate need of a potty stop. Knowing there was only going to be a McDonald’s coming up and not a gas station we pointed and told him “do you see that big Yellow M up there? That M is yellow like peepee so you May come in here to go potty. ” Now anytime he sees the M he says it’s yellow for potty. He ONLY recognizes the sign for that and will tell others. My Daughter is going on 3, she has heard so many times about what garbage food is that while munching on her “olive fingers” is watching a candy commercial to which her reply was “mommy, we don’t eat poopy, we just eat food.” or someone offer her a “treat” and she take a bite and say that is too sweet, we don’t eat poopy, we just eat food.” Talk about beaming moments for me as a parent.
When people talk about not being able to do this WOE with a child because they have a picky eater, I understand. My son is picky too. But because of the choices I have offered him, he is only picky about his options. He does not like to dip his food with ANY sauces, if it has mayo, even healthified ketchup, bbq sauce, any kind of dressing, he will not eat it. He will eat most anything else. He has favorite veggies and ones he doesn’t care for to much. But for him to be picky with only things I approve of, I think I am okay with that.
Thank you for all you do Maria, thank you for helping me from the beginning, before children. For opening my eyes before I started poisoning with processed garbage. From a 2lb 4oz 27 week preemie to a healthy 4 year old whom you would have never guessed had such a rough start. Thank you.” Michelle
