Halle Berry Eats Keto

I am over the moon excited! A few weeks ago someone sent me a message on Instagram that Halle Berry was posting recipes from my book Quick and Easy Ketogenic Recipes cookbook on her Instagram stories!

To think that this all started with a woman named Jamie mentioned that I should write a cookbook to help raise money for our adoption when my husband Craig, lost his job and our adoption fell through. I can’t believe what has come from that moment of desperation…


Halle Berry is a Type 1 diabetic who eats keto not just to look amazing, but to also control her Type 1. Yes Type 1 diabetics can have very good blood sugar control and low A1c’s with a keto diet. Our friend RD Dikeman just helped publish a study that shows just that in his group (typeonegrit on facebook). CLICK HERE to see that study.

“Hey Maria! Sharing a great moment!!! I just returned from an appointment with my family Dr., haven’t seen her in a while. Needed to review my most recent thyroid ultrasound for my Hashimotos.
She walks in the room, and says “you’re so skinny, how did you do it”? I said do you have a few minutes? She responded, I want to know how. I proceeded to tell her about Maria and Craig, The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse book, their KETO book. Told her she must buy the books, they are life changing. She wrote everything down. I then handed her my latest labs ordered by my LLMD, her mouth dropped at my cholesterol numbers! My numbers have never been this good, I’ve never really had high numbers just slightly elevated. She said she has never seen numbers like this. I said “Ketogenic diet”. We then spent an hour discussing what I eat, when etc. she kept saying, I’ve gained so much weight, I feel terrible and need to do something. I said “buy the books”
And drum roll please…the thyroid nodules I had at my last ultrasound, are GONE! I told her I’d like to see the films to compare, I’d like to see if there has been visible improvements with my Hashimotos. She said, call and request them, they are yours, not the hospitals.
I believe, hands down, Maria and Craig’s Keto plan is healing my thyroid. Both of our daughters, ages 27 and 22 now, were diagnosed with Hashimotos and then Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma within a year and half apart, tomorrow is two years since our youngest surgery. I believe the reason I haven’t gotten thyroid cancer, is my nutrition. Now to get both of my daughters to “get it”.  ❤
PS: I should also add that my LLMD just reduced my thyroid meds due to Keto.” – Chris

  • I had no idea she was a diabetic! Major congrats on this victory Maria:)

  • Jeannie says:

    I really like her as an actress. I’m concerned however when she has publicly stated she does not take insulin for her condition. I’ve wondered on occasion if maybe she’s type 2 and maybe misdiagnosed? I thought type 1 HAD to take insulin or they could die? BTW, congratulations on her posting your receips. I would love to see updates on her journey with diabeties and more on how she tightly controls it.

    • Mike says:

      She is not type 2, but has flatbush diabetes. It is a form of type 1, but does not require all of the insulin regimen that a person with full on Type 1 has. You can do some medical research on flatbush to get the general differences on how she is able to manage with Keto and a very small insulin regimen

    So cool!!!

  • Thea Bergeron says:

    I bought the Comfort Food & The Restaurant Favorites cookbooks. I love them both!

  • Nancy says:

    Not really relative to this story, but I have been eating Keto fashion for almost a year now, and still am having no weight reduction…I admit with frustration I will occasionally go off plan, probably once or so a month, on average…I had an awakening with the protein …too much converting to sugar, so I quickly adjusted that, but it’s been months and still I stall and have actually gained belly weight! Any suggestions ? Please before I try something else!!!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Too much protein is not the issues. If weight loss is the goal, you want to hit your protein goal and avoid eating too much fat. 🙂

  • A good report. I’m grateful for ‘The 30 day Ketogenic cleanse’, cookbook. For me half the battle is won by retraining years of cooking ‘the right way’ to the healthy way, and the recipes help immensely. My husband and I are doing the 30 day cleanse and it’s nice to see the weight coming off…effortlessly.
    I live in the United Kingdom, so some things are a bit different…or can’t find..so I adapt accordingly.
    Maria next time you do a book…consider doing duel weights.
    Love your personal story…keep up the great work.

    FYI, The link to Halle Berry’s diet isn’t working.

    Hi, Maria!

    Dr. William Davis (wheat belly) is saying that long term ketosis causes all sorts of problems. What are your thoughts?

    I’ve been eating this way for nearly 2 years. I really don’t want to stop. I feel and look better than I have in years. I was even able to stop my antidepressant in August.

    Thanks for everything…I have at least 5 of your books!!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Dr Davis is a great guy but he has that wrong. Those studies on epilepsy he is using are very old and have been debunked. No truth to it. Ketosis is a more natural human state than not being in ketosis.

      • Jennifer says:

        Thanks! That’s what I think too.

        What about colorectal cancer? Is it from the same study? (I admit that I didn’t read the study. I immediately thought to just ask you.)

        I agree about Dr. Davis – This all started for me with Wheat Belly, so I appreciate his efforts.

  • jbug says:

    Whenever I begin to doubt/consider going off Keto I remind myself that I don’t see the animals in nature eating anything other than plants, meats, nuts, seeds etc and if they were eating Doritos and pop tarts each day ( even if organic lol) they would get very ill. I mean, would i feed my dog muffins and cookies each day? no way! Real food is the only answer for optimal overall wellness. I love Maria for her important work.
