Testimony of the Day

Photo Testimony: “I have not been in the 150 range since I ran on the treadmill 5+ days a week at the gym!! Sooo happy!!!

This is only being on Maria’s plan for just a little over a month that I was able to accomplish this. If I can do this in just a little over a month I am confident I can make it to my pre pregnancy range of 125-135 fairly quickly. I am just stunned at how wonderful eating like this has worked and improved my overall well being! Thank you soooooooo much Maria Wojcik Emmerich :)))) Beth K.

Marathon Fat-Loading

In 2009 I ran the Hawaii marathon with some girlfriends. The night before the race, we went out to dinner to “carb load.” Well, I didn’t… but one of my friends asked how I was going to perform well the next day if I don’t eat the rice or any carbs? I was shocked that the man we were staying with mentioned, “I heard people can run marathons with ‘fat-loading’ instead. I just smiled.

Can you guess what my pre-race meal was?

It was my first taste of Tom Kha Gai soup and it was DEVINE! I will never forget the taste. It was a tiny restaurant on a side street, but since we were staying with local Hawaiians, they knew the best places to eat. They mentioned to us that this meal will take a long time because she makes everything to order, but it is the best Thai food you will ever have.

They weren’t lying. It took a long time, but the taste was amazing. I loved that you could watch the woman cooking in the kitchen. I told the woman that I would prefer my soup without any sugar and that was no issue with her (most Thai dishes add some sugar or sweetener). The only problem was they served the leftovers in styrofoam cups! (as you can see Jessica’s dismay on the bottom middle photo:)

The hardest part of the race was the mental aspect of when they tease the full marathon runners by having them run by the 1/2 marathon finish. Your brain starts freaking out that you are only 1/2 way done! The temptation to quit ended up getting the best of my girlfriends, but my stubbornness kept me going. I almost wish I would have signed up for the 1/2 marathon instead… I would have taken 4th place.

I often dream of that first taste of Tom Kha Gai soup filled with coconut milk, lemongrass and eggplant. I don’t know if it was the company I was with or the love that woman put into each dish, but I have yet to have it that taste that good again.

    Hi :). In “Keto-Adapted” you mention supplementing with magnesium glycinate or topically with gel or lotion. What form of magnesium does the topical need to be in? Is magnesium chloride brine (oil) ok? For kids too? Thank u!

  • Gina says:

    Hi Maria,
    I have been looking for an MCT oil and was excited to see the name of yours but the link doesn’t open on my iPad nor can I copy it. Would like to give you the business (at your Amazon store) if I decide to buy that brand. Will do some research manually and check back later.

  • Gabrielle says:

    I love your recipes but can’t find Swerve. What is the difference between Swerve, Stevia, Erythritol and Xylitol?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Swerve is a combination of Erythritol and another sweetener. All my books have conversion charts (roughly 1 cup Erythritol and 1 tsp stevia glycerite equals 1 cup Swerve).

  • Susan says:

    Ice cream looks delicious but I think I’ll wait until it warms up! 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  • Tina says:

    Is there a soup recipe for this as well? The soup sounds really appetizing to me.

  • Jackie says:

    Sorry I am still confused about the webinar….do I have to watch it on the 21st? Or can I watch it at my leisure? If so how many days do you have to view it?

  • CK says:

    Hi Maria – YUM!!! This looks SO good! Questions: 1. which current recipe book of yours most follows the keto diet? I know you have one coming out in July with Jimmy but wanted to give one to a friend interested in ketosis. 2. I’ve emailed twice about finding out the difference between your keto cleanse and your maintenance/advanced keto plans (I have the maintenance/advanced). I’m curious what is different about the keto cleanse plan? I’d like to purchase but don’t need the books. THANK YOU!!! Looking forward to your webinar tomorrow!! 🙂

  • CK says:

    Perfect! Thank you Maria!!! (just so you know – I used the contact form through your site).

  • I’m guessing there’s no way this’d work without an ice cream maker, am I right?

  • Amy says:

    So besides this soup, what do you recommend to eat the night before a marathon?— or the weeks leading up to it? Thanks for your help.

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      I just eat regular keto meals leading up to it and before the race a meal high in MCT oils. 🙂

  • Hélène says:

    About the magnesium supplementation, can one build up a need for it to move the bowels, like one can with milk of magnesia? My aunt’s bowels got extremely lax with milk of magnesia usage over a few yrs and she couldn’t go to the bathroom. At All. I don’t want to ruin my colon.

    Hi Maria,
    I’m reading your book Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism again, because I’m gained back a little weight (5 pounds…enough to know it’s time to get serious!) after losing 60 pounds and keeping it off for 4 years. I know my metabolism is not functioning as well as it should. Your book is SO GOOD! So much information for me to use!!
    I was noticing you don’t mention a sweetener I’ve recently found. It is an IMO isomalto-ogliosacharide called Vita Fiber. It is .5 grams net carbs/tsp, with 4.5 grams fiber. I weighed it and a cup weighs 150 grams, so it is about 15 net carbs per cup. It is a soluble, prebiotic fiber that is sweet.
    Would you recommend it? It is considerably more affordable here in Canada than Just Like Sugar.
    And just so you know, I’m in no way affiliated with the company or product other than buying their product to try. I would love your opinion!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Thanks! I would look for something with stevia, erythritol or monk fruit, especially in your case with a damaged metabolism. My latest book “Keto-Adapted” I talk about always using total carbs for those situations. I just see too many clients kicked out of ketosis with too much fiber.

      • arlene says:

        That’s interesting about the fiber being a problem…is that new information to you since Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism? Here I’m pouring over it to help me figure out what I can do differently. Does this mean I should always count Total, not Net carbs on everything?
        I will order your new book when I am able, but it looks like it’s only available on Kindle in Canada, which isn’t an option I like. And the exchange rate is terrible right now for ordering cross border!
        Thank you so much for your reply. You are changing lives!
