Testimonies of the Day (yes, they all came the same day!)
“I have been making your recipes for a while now and haven’t found one that we don’t love. I decided to kick it up a notch and started your 30 day accelerated plan this week and have already lost 5.5 lbs in just 5 days! I only had 10 lbs to lose, so I can’t tell you how happy I am to be dropping the weight so fast.” -Tiani
“I am on day 20 of Maria’s awesome lifesaving eating plan!! I am waiting until I am done to measure the results, however, I feel great!! If you are hesitating about whether to try Maria’s healthy eating plan – don’t – it is worth every penny!! -Caroline
“My journey with Maria began 3 months ago. I was hoping to feel better in a month or so … I felt better the very next day! Talk about return for your investment of time and incentive to continue down this path. I have less pain, dropped inches and pounds, more energy and terrific support to continue this Life Style. ” Pam

Another Cute Testimony:
“Maria, I have been following your diet for almost THREE WEEKS now. I have lost 11 pounds. I can almost zip my skinny jeans, so the inches are falling off. Thank you so much for changing my life, and changing my way of thinking and living. The aches and pains are disappearing and I have been walking for 30 minutes each day for the last week. I will be 50 in December and now I am not filled with dread, but filled with hope of healing! All of that to say I appreciate your help. I appreciate your wisdom, recipes, and advice. Have a great rest of the week!” Donna
