Testimonies of the Day

Phone Client Update: “Hi Maria, I thought I would give you an update on my progress. In 7 weeks, I’m down 35 pounds. I simply cannot believe it!!!

My asthma symptoms are gone and I don’t even think of bringing my inhaler with me when I power walk my puppy or when exercising on the elliptical. I used to exercise on the elliptical and count down the minutes so I could finally get off because I had no energy to go on. Now that I’m keto adapted, I have energy to stay on the elliptical for well beyond 30 minutes and I have more energy than when I was doing foolish diets where I ate two low carb protein packets and one low carb meal of my own. It was less than ‘ideal,’ and I cannot believe I was starving myself to lose weight that way.

If anyone out there is still undecided about looking into this way of eating and hasn’t taken the plunge, I say do it now! You will not regret it! And, YOU WON’T be hungry after the first week and a half after you are Keto adapted.

In addition to feeling great because of the fantastic weight loss, I’ve noticed many other benefits beyond just the asthma. They are a laundry list, so I won’t go into them, but suffice to say, they mirror what your other clients say.

Thank you so much for your guidance and your phenomenal books. I have three of them: Keto Adapted, the 3-in-1 cookbook and the crockpot cookbook. I’m enjoying cooking and baking again knowing that I don’t have to make bland food and ‘fat-free’ this or that. Now I read labels on food items and I love knowing what to look for. Thank you for all your work and research!Broccoli Noodle Carbonara

Every time I see that number on the scale go down, I sing a little song in my head that starts out with my version of the melody from the song “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria” from The Sound of Music)…my words are:

How do you thank a genius like Maria?…

I have yet to finish my lyrics, but suffice to say, this way of eating has me doing the happy dance! At the rate I’m going, I have no doubts I will be at goal weight by June of this year. It’s mind boggling to be able to say that!

Thanks again…I can’t sing your praises enough for changing my life…I’m never looking back…” – Kathya

    Looks great! Do you peel the broccoli stalks like a carrot? I find the skin to be quite tough.

  • Hey Maria, I realize you don’t categorize or tag your posts anymore, and I’m extremely fond of the ones like pure protein and fat, will you still be labelling posts?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      When I moved to the new blog platform, they treat categories and labels differently. Sorry.

    how do you make them into noodles?

  • Terri B says:

    Hi Maria – I just went over my labs with my integrative medicine doc and she said I have the liver of an 18 year old (not sure that’s a good thing but am assuming it is). I’m 57. I told her I owed it all to you 🙂 My estrogen and testosterone are low and among other things she recommended DIM (diindolylmethane). I searched your site but don’t see mention of this. I also don’t have it in supplement recommendations I have from you. Is this something that you have in your Amazon store? I always get my supplements through you so I can trust the brand I purchase. Thank you so much all your hard work and wonderful information! You have changed my life. My cholesterol numbers were good (not too low 🙂 and she said I have no signs of insulin resistance or diabetes; vitamin D and B were great. YOU ARE AWESOME.

  • Whitney Swanner says:

    What k2 supplement do u give ur kids and how much pls? And thank u for giving us something to do with a Broccoli stalk instead of throw it away :))

  • Jean Lynd says:

    This looks awesome! Thanks!

  • Maye says:

    Hi maria! I have been following the keto diet for a while now with great results. I actually purchased the keto-adapted book (by the way, great book). I am 5′ 4″, 25 years old and weigh 105 pounds, and feel incredibly healthy. However, I would like to have a fit, toned body. The raw vegan diet has become very popular in Mexico for achieving this type of body. What is your opinion on this diet?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      I don’t agree with that at all. A keto lifestyle is amazing for lowering body fat while maintaining muscle. I have had many fitness models and athletes thrive in a keto diet. 🙂

  • Robyn F. says:

    This turned out delicious! Just … not as pretty as yours Maria. Mine was much darker in color. Also – what is the yellow/orange part on the right side of the pan? It looks like egg yolk.

  • Hélène says:

    Whitney–Dont throw out any veg scraps. Make stock or dice up to sneak into entreés or toss a little into a salad. Food is TOO expensive to waste at all. Even onion peels and such can be put in stock. 🙂
    Its like hiding organ meats, always some way to sneak them in lol
