Testimony of the Day from a Type I diabetic
“Maria, Kathy and I have to let you know what the time with you has done for us. As you know I am a type 1 diabetic and am always looking to improve my eating habits. And like most Americans we are also trying to fight the onslaught of cheap easy food and what it does to us.My goal as a type 1 diabetic was to reduce my insulin intake and to stop taking drugs that doctors feel are necessary for diabetics take just because we are diabetics.
In my search for better meals and healthier eating a friend of mine recommended you. From our very first session I learned I was close. But, the little changes I made were a world of difference. And as continue making changes that are in line with your teaching I continue heal my body.For example, before we changed our food combinations I was taking up to 40 units of insulin a day.
The changes started lowering the amount of my daily use of insulin the very first day. I am now down to using between 15 and 20 units a day. That means my body is storing less fat and I am beginning to fuel my body with fats and moderate protein instead of carbs. What is more impressive is that I have never been under 20 units of insulin a day in five years as a diabetic. I thought the first day was a fluke. But, it is now a norm. And most important I am eating as much if not a little more food each day. I am not starving at all.My wife is not a strict as I am. However, she is making the changes I am making everyday. She is also losing weight and getting closer to her natural body weight. There is little to no effort to make the changes.
The only things that are hard for her to give up totally is wheat bread an a little Diet Dr. Pepper a week. However, she is taking steps every day to change her life over and plans to be completely changed in the next few weeks.
Thank you Maria for helping us get on the right path to better health. Marc”

From the Chapter: Keto-Adapted Diets Help Heal Auto-Immune Disorders
I get a lot of type 1 diabetics that comment or write to me saying that I need to remember to say type 2 diabetes when I write about carbohydrates and my success stories. I understand the differences between type 1 and type 2, but a well-formulated keto-adapted diet does help type 1 also! Type 1 diabetes develops when antibodies destroy the cells in the pancreas that produce and secrete insulin. The body normally produces these antibodies to defend itself from foreign invaders, but sometimes these helpful antibodies turn on the body’s own cells. In the case of type 1 diabetes, the antibodies target the pancreatic cells. Most of the time, these antibodies can be identified through the examination of a blood sample. When antibodies are present in the blood, it means the blood is attacking a foreign substance. When food leaks from the intestines into the bloodstream (because of leaky gut), the blood reacts by attacking the protein found in foods, such as the gluten found in wheat or the casein found in dairy. In this case, we need to lower the autoimmune response as well as count carbohydrates and excess protein. This is why a high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carb and allergen-free diet works for autoimmune disorders. There have been several studies proving an association between type 1 diabetes and celiac disease, so when eliminating gluten, carbs, and excess protein, I have some awesome results.
If you are a type 1 diabetic and you start to eat a well-formulated keto-adapted diet, it is extremely important to work closely with your doctor. When clients tell me that their doctor told them, “Don’t worry, eat whatever you want, just make sure you cover your glucose with insulin,” it’s like saying to a firefighter, “Don’t worry, pour as much gasoline as you like on that fire, as long as you cover it with enough water.” It is absolutely dangerous and irrational. In this case, I suggest finding a new doctor who will encourage you to eat a keto-adapted diet while watching your need for insulin.

One staple that every cook should have in their fridge is Fish Sauce. It is a special ingredient that takes good food to amazing food. Fish Sauce, mushrooms and aged cheeses have something called “UMAMI.” Umami is a pleasant savory taste produced by glutamate and ribonucleotides, chemicals which occur naturally in many foods.
Umami is subtle and not generally identified by people when they encounter it, but blends well with other flavors and makes food taste amazing.
Red Boat brand is traditionally fermented, not with wheat like most others. This bottle will last you a long time – you only use a little bit in a recipe!
Tip: You can make this in a 6 quart slow cooker on medium heat for 6 hours if desired.
Tender Cilantro Chicken
- 1 3 inch piece of fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
- 5 large cloves garlic coarsely chopped
- 2 tsp lime juice
- 1/4 tsp Redmond Real salt
- 1/2 tsp fish sauce
- 2 TBS water
- 4 skinless chicken leg quarters separated into thighs and drumsticks
- 1 tomato seeded and chopped
- 3 cups lightly packed cilantro leaves and stems
- 1 tsp tomato paste
- 3/4 tsp Redmond Real salt
- 3 TBS coconut oil
- 1 cups full fat coconut milk
- Green onions and cilantro
- Place ginger, garlic, lemon juice, fish sauce and 1/4 teaspoon salt into a blender; add 2 tablespoons water and blend until smooth.
- Place chicken pieces into a non-metallic bowl and pour ginger mixture over chicken.
- Rub ginger mixture into the meat, cover bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (up to 24 hours).
- In same blender pitcher (without rinsing), place tomato, cilantro leaves and stems, tomato paste, 3/4 tsp salt, and 2 tablespoons water. Blend until smooth.
- Heat oil in a large, heavy nonstick pot with a lid over high heat. When oil is very hot, place chicken pieces with ginger marinade into pot; fry, turning chicken occasionally, until light brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Pour cilantro mixture from blender over chicken. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens and oil separates, about 10 minutes.
- Place coconut milk into pot, cooking and stirring until it is blended into sauce, 4 to 5 minutes.
- Reduce heat to low, and cook until chicken is tender and no longer pink inside, 10 to 15 minutes.

Another Awesome Testimony!
I was diagnosed 8 years ago with what they figure to be life long depression and PTSD. From the first day, I was on meds, I looked forward to the day that I would find a way to stop them. Just never wanted the chemicals in my body but had to respect that I needed help and knew no other way to get better. I had healed a bunch before finding Maria on FB. Had been able to discontinue antidepressants but not the anxiety meds.
Then I found Maria. In just a few months have found an inner peace I never knew was possible. Thank you for lighting the way. I am overjoyed to be healing. Thank you for all you do for all of us. – Pam”

My favorite recipe in the crockpot is BBQ Pulled Pork!
Slow cooked, pulled pork is not just one of my favorite slow cooker meals but one of my favorites, period. There are few things better.
I am just curious as to why I shouldn’t use a metal bowl? Always worth knowing this stuff in case the reason applies to other recipes as well. Thanks!
My favorite recipe is crock pot chili.
I love love love the tapioca recipe.
Soups! All kinds. I”m looking forward to trying new recipes which conform to Maria’s principles.
I am on day four of your 30 day accelerated plan. I was skeptical at first if I would feel full eating what you recommended but I am totally satisfied. So much so that after a late lunch yesterday I didn’t really want dinner. Is it ok if I skip a meal on the 30 day plan if I’m not hungry? Also, can I use full fat coconut can milk in my coffee each morning? Thanks so much! I’m excited to be doing this! Your plan makes it so easy to follow and I love your recipes!
Love to make chili in the slow cooker!
I have just resently discovered your website and I am very excited to try a lot of these recipes from you blog. I am having a problem finding some of the brands you use. I live in A small town in Canada and my health food stores don’t supply Jay Robb products. I was wondering if there was another brand I could use instead? I have looked online for some of the ingredients but I am having I hard time finding places that ship to Canada.
Thank you for your time
That would be a great question for the forum. See if anyone else in Canada has any ideas. 🙂
Hi Michelle, try Low Carb Canada at http://www.lowcarbcanada.ca they have a lot of Maria’s recommended products and if you order over $100 shipping is free. Also Vitacost is good, they are in the US shipping is kind of expensive but their prices overall are really good. Nuts.com ship to canada also but again shipping is expensive.
It’s not a slow cooker recipe but my favorite is your flourless chocolate torte:) It was the first recipe I tried. I knew from then on your creations were going to be exciting! If a dessert could be this good AND good for me, what could be more exciting! I couldn’t wait to try the countless other recipes! I hope to get the slow cooker book soon!

Yesterday I knifed a few holes in a spaghetti squash and an acorn squash, set them in my Nesco cooker on a rack in the bottom and set it to “cook” setting, added a little water and cooked for about 2 hours or until sides of squashes can be pushed in with a spoon. After cooling awhile, put them on a plate and sliced in half. Easily scooped out the seeds and added spaghetti sauce and parmasean cheese to the spaghetti squash (after I used a fork to make it into strands) and added butter and brown sugar to the acorn squash. Easiest way I’ve ever cooked a squash!!!
My favorite slow cooker recipe is unstuffed italian cabbage soup.
My FORMER favorite crockpot recipe was for any roasts sprinkled with (preservative-laden) Onion Soup Mix and cooked until the probe indicated it was done… Not sure what my NEW favorite slow-cooker recipe will BECOME now that I’ve discovered Maria’s way of cooking and have just purchased her crockpot cookbook!

Hi Maria, I purchased the 30 day Accelerated plan just before Thanksgiving I have been following the plan and have been feeling great ever since. My husband just started the plan last Thursday. He felt great the first four days and lost 10 pounds. The last couple days he has gained 3 pounds back and is feeling very bloated. Is this something normal to experience when starting the accelerated plan and the path to a keto adapted lifestyle?
my fave in the slow cooker is broth…
Hello to Michelle and any other Canadians who are looking to find some products that Maria recommends because amazon.com does not ship to Canada (go figure eh?), I get a lot of products from Low Carb Canada free shipping on items over $100. and also Vitacost which is in the US shipping can be high but they have good prices. It is very frustrating trying to find grass fed meats and i have not been successful in finding grass fed butter yet. One would think that with the economy being the way it is more companies would try harder to ship to Canada, but I guess it’s not that easy with Customs etc..
My favorite slow cooker food has to be turkey chili..mmm that sounds really good right now.
Our favorite is Pulled Pork. 🙂
The one we make the most would probably be pulled pork – YUM! But my husband and I recently became obsessed with using a slow cooker so it’s hard to choose just one!

You can just omit it. 🙂
I have had success on your program. I purchased the accelerated package. However, my 17 1/2 year old daughter has not had success and has actually gained a few pounds after a week of being strictly on the program. Do you have any thoughts or help for her please?
Everyone is different in how they adapt. Some can see almost immediate success, some take more time. I recently got this testimony from a client. “He dropped 30lbs quickly-he wasn’t overweight but now he looks great! It took my body a bit longer to acclimate and begin the fat burning process but I did not give up. I kept hard at it, as well as exercising faithfully. By week 8 I began to see some changes. My clothes began to get loose, and by month 3 I had lost 20lbs.”
Thank you for the encouragement.
Maria, I am looking for a new slow cooker. I noticed you recommend the Fagor. Are you worried about the nonstick coating? Or did you buy the stainless steel insert. And are you only using that? Thanks!!
I actually use this one and love it! 🙂 http://astore.amazon.com/marisnutran05-20/detail/B001AO2PXK
