Testimonies of the Day
From a Phone Client: “No more hot flashes! I have gone from having 2-3 per hour all day and night to NONE! OGM – this is life changing! I am sleeping SO much better. Its not perfect yet but its so much better. Some nights are better than others.” Nancy
From a Webinar Participant: “Thank you, thank you, thank you! My first suggestion was going to be to have these (classes) more often, but I saw this morning you have another one and I am already signed up! Yeah!
Also, I know you are busy, but I wanted to tell you really quickly that you have been a miracle in my life. I will spare you the details, but after two weeks of following the meal and supplement plan you provided for me I am a new person! In one day you diagnosed my issues that doctors couldn’t figure out over the last 20 years.
Who knew my issues were hormone related?! For the first time in years I finally feel balanced and happy. I can never thank you enough. I have been telling all of my family and friends about you.
The webinar last night gave me that little boost of encouragement to continue with your plan. It was just what I needed. I have devoured all of your books (multiple times) and I am looking forward to your new one. There is something about hearing you live though that really gives me that extra boost.
Thank you for being such a blessing (and answer to prayer) in my life! – Cami”

OXYGEN METABOLIC TESTING
Lately I have been seeing a lot of advertisements for metabolic testing. The price ranges from $80-$200 on average. This test determines your oxidation rate of calories. On a specific website, it states: “It determines if there is an increased or decreased metabolism, and if your body primarily uses fats or carbohydrates for energy. This information can be used to determine the amount of calories you need to eat each day to maintain or lose weight. The results may also indicate that you have a medical condition affecting your metabolism. Diabetes, under or over active thyroid, COPD, heart disease, mitochondrial disorders, and obesity are some common conditions that may alter your metabolism.”
True, all of those disorders can change how you oxidize calories, BUT with a ketogenic diet and in some cases supplements (such as CoQ10 to increase mitochondria) you can burn FAT at a faster rate. The test outcomes also change daily depending on a variety of things going on in your body. If you ate or worked out within a few hours of taking the test, the measurement will be off. As I discussed this with someone at the gym, and how this number changes daily and with our menstrual cycle, she told me her story about Metabolic Testing:
“Before I met Maria, I used to work out all the time like crazy. I prided myself of being in great shape. I had an instructor at the gym talk me into doing the metabolic assessment to help me know where I’m at with my health fitness and what to incorporate from there. I took the test with outstanding results. She and I were shocked and overly pleased with how awesome my results were. But to my dismay, as I was chatting with Maria, and letting her know what I had done, she explained to me that the testing shows different results at different times of the month for women.
I had been menstruating at the time and therefore, my results were much different than they would have been a week later. I did end up taking the metabolic testing again later, and sure enough my results came out differently. The point I want to make is that I felt as though the testing didn’t do much for me. I already had knowledge of how and when to work out and I started questioning the results and whether or not they really were important. But also, I was beginning to see that the results would probably be different each time I did it, therefore, not accurate.
I’m seeing that MORE IMPORTANTLY, is my eating. – B”
NOTE: If you want a cute yellow yolk center around the white. I added a little bit of my lemon curd filling (click HERE to find). Or use natural yellow food coloring (click HERE to find) to 1/4 of the filling and use in the very center of the white filling when making the eggs.
