Testimony of the Day

I ask my phone clients to check in with me to make sure things are going well. I just had to share an email from yesterday:

Hi Maria! I here is my report after 1 week…

1. Overall, I am feeling much, much better health wise. On days when I “stick to plan”, take all my supplements, and get my 8 hours sleep I feel FANTASTIC….almost like I’m on an energy high!!

2. I’ve lost 10 pounds already and I have not even been “perfect” or exercising as much as I normally do during triathlon season (just training for the 10 miler).

3. I’m learning so much, I never, ever, knew from all your stuff, I’m still trying to read it all, print it all, and digest it all in bits and pieces….just because my stepson and job do not allow for large blocks of time!! I’ve also done research out on a lot of what you have provided/said and you are dead right about everything it is amazing. I just wish I could digest it all quicker, but I know it will be an ongoing learning process………

4. I was a PASTA AND BREAD fanatic…..I bet I ate those things one way or another 80% of the time!!! I have cut all of that out and mostly I don’t even want it……I thought I would be drooling in every direction at all of it…..but I’m not….I look at it and my body almost says…..”do it and you will feel crappy”!!!! It is weird!!! Now I almost CRAVE GOOD foods!!! I hope this lasts……
5. I told Kari earlier this week, this is one of the best things I have ever, ever done in my life!!! (along with finding triathlon, etc……I feel like this was a missing component).

I remember my first taste of a Pumpkin Latte; I was in the cutest coffee shop in Vermont visiting my really fun aunt, Julie:) I also worked at a coffee shop when I was in high school, which is where my passion for baked goods came along. We always got to bring home the leftover cinnamon rolls, muffins, scones, cookies…that were left from the day! Yikes!

Another Cute Testimony

“Hi Maria! I wanted to let you know how much I love your blog, Facebook info, books and of course your recipes. I have not personally had a one on one consultations with you, although I have been to your seminars (which are awesome). For some reason today I felt I needed to share something with your readers. I have struggled for almost 20 years with not feeling well. I knew something was wrong but didn’t know how to go about fixing it. Also like many others, the thought of giving up foods that you love was not something I thought I could do. Well….here I am today to tell you I can do it. I am on day 27 of no gluten, no sugar! I was so sick I had to do a yeast cleanse and am currently doing a liver cleanse. It is not easy to remove food that has such a strong hold in your life BUT once you do…..it is awesome! I don’t have cravings any more nor do I think about food all day, which is huge for me. I am finally starting to feel better so that is a big plus. The best part is…..even though I know I will never eat wheat again, it is okay because I know how to cook Maria style! Thank you for sharing your wisdom and insight about food and how it affects our bodies. To those new to this way of eating….you can do it! Don’t wait for the perfect time to start. It will not be easy but once you get used to it, you will be happy that you did it! Thanks or letting me share.” -Shelly!
