Testimony of the Day
Another wonderful testimonial!
“I found Maria Emmerich in 2012. I was hooked! I signed up for Maria’s Email Support and Nutrition Planning package mid-February 2013. Best investment I ever made! She helped me every step of the way to get things started and she really cares about you!
I started in March and in the first 7 days, I dropped 16 pounds! I was shocked! Within the first month, I dropped 23 pounds; my skin had cleared up and was looking great. I noticed my hair had stopped falling out, no more hair filled brushes! All my body pain/aches were gone and my mood swings had stabilized! I felt normal for the first time in my life!
By June 7th I reached my first goal of 50 pounds lost which was reached 5 weeks and 2 days before the deadline I set for this goal! And I did it without exercise. I feel great and I am ready for my next goal: 66 pounds, start exercising and able to jog a 5k by Christmas!
It has been a real learning process and I have had my ups and downs but I know Maria will always be there for me. I have learned so much and still growing. I am one of those people that have to learn everything the hard way. I now know what slows and stops my weight loss. Maria told me it would happen if I ate this or that but I had to eat it and learn it for myself. I guess that’s just how I roll! Maria has been a real blessing in my life.
Started 315 pounds
as of July 7th 265 pounds”

1. SULFER: Onions contain a number of sulfides similar to those found in garlic which may lower blood lipids and blood pressure.
2. FLAVONOIDS: Onions are a rich source of flavonoids, substances are known to provide protection against cardiovascular disease.
3. ANTI-CLOTTING: Onions are also natural anticlotting agents since they possess substances with fibrinolytic activity and can suppress platelet-clumping. The anti-clotting effect of onions closely correlates with their sulfur content.
4. BLOOD SUGAR: One cup of raw onion contains more than 20% of the daily requirement of the trace mineral chromium, important for helping the body to metabolize sugar and lipids.
5. GOOD GUT BACTERIA (increase serotonin/decrease cravings): Onions are a very rich source of fructo-oligosaccharides. These oligomers stimulate the growth of healthy bifidobacteria and suppress the growth of potentially harmful bacteria in the colon.
6. ANTIOXIDANTS: Onions are rich in phytochemicals and the antioxidant flavonoid quercetin, which helps lower the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, and many types of cancer.
