Testimony of the Day
Photo Testimony: “Hi Maria! I’ve been wanting to drop you a line and let you know how very much your online presence has helped me. In September 2011, after all my attempts at weight loss had failed, I underwent RNY gastric bypass surgery. I had had a weight problem since I was four years old. The history between then and the following 52 years was not pretty. At the time of my surgery, I was on ten different medications and a CPAP machine. Fast forward to one year after surgery. I lost109 pounds and all but one medication. I have maintained the loss, with no fluctuations.
I found you via a LCHF group member. I have followed your blog and have purchased five of your wonderful books. Currently, I’m trying to switch my husband over to Maria’s Way. He has about 30 pounds to lose. He’s been avoiding having a physical because he doesn’t want to get the Cholesterol Lecture and statins. He is also experiencing concern about low sex drive. This entire week, except lunch, we have eaten your way. He may be coming around.
I credit Maria’s Way with keeping my weight and health concerns under control. Yes, the surgery limits my intake and absorption of what I eat, but the average regain two years after RNY is 50%. Thank you for helping me beat the odds!
I have always been non-physical. Exercise was a four letter word. September 2014, I rode a mountain bike 150 miles for a fund raising event. I had huge nutritional challenges. I made your “fat bomb gel” to ride with me. Again, thank you! It was a huge help! It, along with raw macadamia nuts fueled me for two days. Zero sore muscles. Zero hitting the wall.
You’re one amazing lady! Thank you from a life changed! Maybe even two!” – Bobbie

Trying to make Valentine’s Day Special while staying on your diet? How about some healthy eggs!
My sister-in-law showed me this trick. All you have to do is hard boil some eggs, peel them and while they are still hot, place them in the ‘v’ shaped cardboard with a chopstick over the top. Secure with a rubber-band. Allow to cool in the fridge and tada! SO cute!

Today I am giving away a box of ChocoPerfection bars! ChocoPerfection bars uses the sweeteners oligofructose, which is derived from ground-up chicory root, and erythritol, which comes from fermented natural foods. These ingredients don’t effect insulin levels (zero on the glycemic index) or have a laxative effect like malitol. Most “low carb” chocolates use malitol which does increase blood sugar and often causes intestinal discomfort. Here’s to chocolate on a “diet!”

Keto Adapted has helped me learn diet tips to better manage my Crohn’s. It also helped me understand the importance of eating adequately (I’m underweight and still working on being as healthy as possible).
It has helped me understand how to make healthy sweets and bread items from scratch.
Keto Adapted has given me fantastic recipes to keep me satisfied while eating keto. The Keto Cheetos are my current favorit snack.
Keto adapted has helped me learn a much better way of living with the added benefit of weight loss. At 53 years old I have never felt better!!!!
Keto Adapted helped me go wheat free, and almost sugar free. I first read about the idea that wheat was harming our bodies on Keto Adapted, then i read “Wheatbelly” as suggested by Maria. My husband and I would never go back, we feel great! After cutting wheat and other gluten grains from our diet we had a good look at everything else and all Maria’s recommendations and we are slowly but surely eating much better. Our weights were pretty good already and now they are stable, we both feel way less aches and pains and have more energy. Thank you Maria!
I’m sleeping again 🙂 Thank you Maria! And this testimony really made me happy. Amazing!
cuuute! Will be making these! Thanks…
At 50 (ALMOST 51), I have struggled with middle age weight gain. I am able to lose, but keeping it off was always the issue. I have maintained a 50 lbs. weight loss for over a year now with Keto. it is amazing. I have lost my craving for carbs most of the time because I am usually satisfied by the wonderful food I can eat. Fats are very satisfying and Maria’s recipes are great!
I have gotten so many great ideas and recipes, I am sleeping better, my joints don’t feel so creaky anymore. I have lost forty pounds, mad my husband has lost twenty five. We both have some more weight we need to lose, but we know we can do it now. Thank you Maria. You have been an amazing mentor to us all, and when I read your books and blogs I feel like a friend is talking to me. Thanks to you we are grain free and sugar free. I could never go back to that again. Not now, not ever. Love the egg idea. It will be fun for any time, but especially Valentine’s Day.
Maria, you have been an inspiration to me and a very good friend of mine. We both are a support person for the other in getting Keto-Adapted and staying there. We now have others in the office asking questions as we lose and look better and better. Thank you for all the wonderful recipes and making available through your services the menu plans. It helps so much.
Keto has helped regulate my thyroid!
I have learned to cook with healthy fats again and am loving it! Food tastes so much better and I am losing weight. Thank you so much for your work in educating those of us struggling most of our lives with weight. Hugs!
I feel better but still in process
I feel like a new woman! No more blah, sloth-like feelings for this gal!
Hi Maria! Your website is absolutely amazing and contains so much wonderful information about how to live a keto lifestyle and WHY (even more importantly). The post that has resonated with me the most is “Granola and OATMEAL = CAVITIES!!!” I have always had very healthy teeth up until recently and this post has given me hope that continuing on this way of life and eating can help me reverse some of the bone loss and periodontal disease I’ve experienced of late. Thanks so very much for being an inspiration to all of us who seek the truth about real nutrition (not what the FDA would have us believe!). You are a shining star 😉
It helped me be more comfortable with my body and follow a diet that’s healthy and balanced!
I have learned so much about the truth about cholesterol and artificial sweetners. I am on the 90 day program and have enjoyed all the recipes. The biggest thing I have learned is what damage sugar has done to my body. I have been wheat free for 2 years, but still ate sugar. I did not realize that sugar was what was keeping my body from the healing process.
I’ve been following you for 2 years. I have your books and I love the slow cooker one because I can create healthy low carb d delicious meals for my family and I. I haven’t had a chance to try the choco perfection and I would love to bake chocolate chip cookies with my daughter.
Not having a thyroid and therefore a metabolism that tends towards putting on weight Keto is the only way I have been able to stay slim. So happy I found Maria 🙂
I feel so much better when I lose the grains and sugars! I have energy and can concentrate easier. One of my favorite meals is protein lasagna with some garlic “bread”. Love it!
Keto Adapted has helped me maintain successful weight loss.
So many benefits, the grat recipes, the information I have learned, oh and the weight loss & inches lost are great. But, the best news as a type I diabetic is my decrease in insulin!
I am very new to the Keto Adapted weight loss program. I’m still working on getting it all figured out. I am here pinning your recipes all the time. I am inspired and have to buy your books.
Keto Adapted has helped become healthier and lose weight.
keto adaped has made my body aware of how sensitive I am to refined sugars and carbs. Thanks.
You have given really good Thyroid advice and I love your recipes.
Your website is changing the way I eat and I am learning so much. I have replaced sugar with swerve and stevia and am learning more about eating a healthy low carb diet.
I need to learn more about a keto adapted diet
It has helped me realize dessert recipes dont have to contain sugar to taste good.
Keto-adapted has given me a great resource for ketogenic diet info that is thorough and correct. The arsenal of recipes to stay keto-adapted is astounding! I feel like I’ve become a gourmet chef by following Maria’s recipes.
Love your recipe ideas and your stories of healing!
All of your great recipes has helped me switch my whole family to the “Maria-way!”
Maria,seeing all your recipes helps you realize that there is so much to enjoy w/out without having to succumb to high carb foods. But you so need to plan ahead and have low-carb version snacks ready so that when the munchies hit, you are prepared!
Keto Adapted is changing our families health!
I have been eating this way for almost 3 years. Prior to radically changing my diet, I would find new cavities at every dental visit. 🙁
Ever since I started eating this way (wheat/grain-free/sugar-free), I have not gotten ANY cavities….3 years!!! For me, that’s a major miracle! Oh……and my history of gum disease which resulted in extract 1 molar (prior to my change in diet) is COMPLETELY GONE!!!!!!
I’ve learned so much. I’m trying to get my husband on board! He is in the pre-diabetics stage. He won’t give up anything! It’s worrying me. It causes arguments, but I keep going! I need him to follow thi plan. I have all the books and the ease of you blog post alway keeps me in touch with recipes so even while away from home I have recipes, never any excuse not to be on plan!say prayers for us. And thank you Emmerich family for all the hard work and sharing with us. Even the taster!
I have already liked both Choco Perfection and Keto Adapted on Facebook. Do we visit the pages each time? Eating the Maria way has benefitted me in so many ways, 70LB weight loss, better health, lower cholesterol and a whole host of things. I haven’t had Choco Perfection bars since last summer, when I was eating one a day and losing a pound a day. I still have 35 LBs to go to goal and would LOVE these bars.
These amazing, creative keto recipes have helped me expand my very limited diet due to health and dietary restrictions. Maria’s advice on nutrition, supplements, and everything else under the sun have always been informative and useful on my journey toward better health.
Thank you for introducing me to the keto-adapted lifestyle. I feel better in a million ways. Can’t wait to make some heart shaped boiled eggs 🙂
I love that I can still have my chocolates as a treat and don’t feel like I have to cheat or miss out. Thank you.
I feel more energized.
I’m not completely Keto YET, but it’s taught me to pay better attention to what I eat. I’m slowly getting there and trying to convince my family as well. My husband has such a sweet tooth so I keep trying to make him healthier snacks and have actually found a few he likes!
Becoming keto-adapted is the only way for me! I feel so much better including my muscle mass going up, up, and up! I wish my GI issues were gone but they have improved or are controlled anyways. I am really hoping it is the final answer for me and I realize I need to be patient and keep learning 🙂
Being Keto-Adapted got me pregnant! 🙂
Keto is helping me now. I’ve been trying to stay focused and just get through the first couple of weeks and have not been able to until January 1. I have been grain and sugar free the whole month. I haven’t lost much weight but joint pain is leaving me. I have a lot to learn but now after 4 weeks the cravings are gone and it’s a lot easier to make my plate of food so it is not full of carbs. Last night we went to a very popular slider restaurant in Cork Town. Friends kept asking if I was sure I could find something to eat. Sure did, I just ordered everything without a bun. it was delicious and I didn’t feel like crap today. Might not have been totally perfect but it was a whole lot better than what I would have ordered a month ago.
61 years young a heart attack a year ago this month 40 pounds lost and cholesterol coming down. Feeling great and enjoying life now!! Thanks Maria for all you do! You are an Angel providing the world with healthy recipes and information!!
Would love to try these in baking, which I haven’t done yet. I haven’t found the product locally! Thank you for all you do.
The quest to become keto-adapted has resulted in, among other things: fantastic skin (unless I get glutened!), reduced anxiety, consistent energy levels, better control of my moods, and fewer spells of depression. Diabetes runs in Dad’s side of the family, and last time I got my fasted glucose tested I was at 100 mg/dL (or whatever the units are — the high end of the ‘normal’ range heading toward pre-diabetic, anyway) and that was a huge wake-up call. I’m eager to see what my numbers will be at my next physical.
Never going back!
I learned how to take back my health!
I am feeling so much better eating low carb and I know it will just keep getting better.
I’m enjoying cooking again and my ibs has cleared up. Thank you.
I’ve learned to cook healthy and am losing weight.
So happy to be able to still have chocolate!! Love it!
ChocoPerfection bars are my favorite way to stay keto-adapted! 🙂
I have found so many wonderful ideas for my children on your site! I have some picky eaters, and your recipes are right on target.
KetoAdapted has helped me lose weight, sleep better and reduced my anxiety. Thank you Maria!
I have been eating low carb/Keto for 2 years and havemaintained the 35 pounds I lost with the help of your site and recipes, thank you! I love using psyllium husk powder to make breads and thicken my “freezer treats” Thank you!
Your recipes are fab! They help us stay on track and enjoy the occasional sweet. Also, LOVE the coconut rolls !
I have found some really interestingv recipes including bullet-proof ice cream
It has helped my tremendously with weight loss!
Being keto adapted has changed my life –no more mood swings, sugar crashes, constant cravings, bloating, or carb coma!! I had no idea the answer was this simple! Thank you for all your great recipes & tips, Maria!
Love chocoperfection bars!
All I see are cute egg hearts & chocolate *_* I must be hungry. xD Thanks for all the awesome recipes and giveaways that you do!! Whenever I’m browsing through Pinterest and see a particular recipe that starts to make me salivate, I have a feeling the link is going to send me to your blog… it always does! 🙂
I wanted to thank you for Valentine’s Day list. It’s nice to have choices to celebrate the day with.
Keto Adapted has just been a great resource for nutrition information and new ideas for how to eat healthy in a keto lifestyle. Especially, how not to feel deprived.
I’m working towards keto adapted. I’ve been grain free for over a year ava still working on the sugar thing. It comes and goes by days. when I stay off of it, I fell better and my face clears up.
I’m excited about going keto because I have chronic Lyme disease, severe depression and some other things. I would love to feel healthy for once in my life.
Hubby and I have been Keto-adapted for two years. Hubby is down 75 pounds, off one diabetes drug and off statin. Most of my fibromyalgia symptoms are gone.
Keto Adapted has helped in many ways but one of the most noticeable, besides losing weight, is my sustained level of energy.
I love Keto Adapted recipes and have several of your cookbooks. My nephew and his girlfriend are doing keto as well and I gave them our three cookbook collection and a bag of Swerve for Christmas. They loved it! Your healthified angel food cake has been my husband’s birthday cake for the past two years as well.
I have struggled for the past few years thinking I was eating healthy and still continuing to gain weight. Being referred to this website is the best thing that’s happened to me. I feel better and am losing some weight and I don’t feel deprived. I am not always hungry and this is my go to for recipes and meals. I have been following your meal plan and love it. Thanks for making a plan that makes sense and is easy to follow.
What adorable valentine’s eggs!! 😀 And thank you for holding the contest and for the wonderful prizes, Maria! They will definitely help us to continue on our journey!
Of course and congrats!
Keto Adapted has helped me to teach my Type 2 diabetic daughter how to healthify her food. Thank you!
Keto adapted has helped me keep my blood sugars under control, given me soo much more energy, and helped me give my children the healthiest diet around!
Your Keto adapted recipes are just the thing to help me on my new quest to heal my adrenal insufficiency ( with a tumor, it is more like nonexistence). I feel so much better without wheat and sugar! Finding you and your great cookbooks had been a LIFE saver! Thank you so much, Maria! 🙂
Keto Adapted has let me eat delicious healthy foods while on a Paleo diet. I love your bread recipe!
Hi! I have learned a lot of tips and products to use!
I am finally sleeping through the night. Yay!
Keto Adapted is my go-to resource for so many things, now – not just the recipes, which are truly ingenious – and delicious! – but also for information on supplements and so many other nutritional questions I have. The Amazon store has been such a great resource, as well, since the prices are the best available. What I most appreciate is your ‘rip off the band-aid’ approach. Thanks for your honesty about the detriments of sugar, grains and other starchy foods. I’m *really* looking forward to the Keto Life webinar at the end of this month as I’m certain it will answer some other questions I have about workout times.
I love, love, love (!) ChocoPerfection bars! I’ve introduced them to my work team, so instead of grabbing a bag of chips or M&Ms at their afternoon low time (I don’t have that anymore) they’re getting a tasty and healthier treat – without even knowing it! They still don’t believe it’s sugar free 🙂
Thanks for all you do for all of us. Love the cookbooks and use them weekly – also really looking forward to the new one this summer!
It’s made me feel better! No knee aches which means no surgery!
I’m learning to appreciate natural sweetness instead of craving sugar.
Being ketoadapted has, simply, changed my life! I lost 70 pounds and 4 dress sizes…I sleep better…my mood has improved and I am no longer on antidepressants, I am stronger because i can work out now, my bloodwork is better now than it EVER has been, I no longer have cravings and can go for 12 hours or more without feeling hungry,… Shall I go on?? Love the new me!!!
Maria has helped me to understand that fat is not evil!
I have learned lots of tips and tricks to being healthier! Maria has also shown us how easy it can be to change these things in our lives and still be able to lead a “normal” life!!
I like your Lava cake in your book
The Art of healthy Eating
Keto love….finally have found the healthy way to eat – our bodies NEED healthy food, not the junk food so many people eat every day!
I have been eating Keto for a month tomorrow and I’ve realized that many of your recipes are more delicious than the unhealthy version!!!
The recipes and tips has really helped me along my holistic journey. I was placing way to many limitations and rules on myself .. and I have found that this site and links have helped me adjust to a healthier healthy if you know what I mean. Thank you
Made for dinner your slow cooker Rueben Chicken it was awesome. Thanks for unique and easy recipes makes stay on this new healthy lifestyle easy,
My whole life changed. I feel and look so much better. I plan to eat this way the rest of my life.
My headaches and migraines are virtually nonexistent after years of suffering!
been following Maria over a year, have a number of her books and following the program I’ve lost over 30lbs. Happy to kick sugar to the curb as well as grains and carbs. Wish more of my family would jump on this train to better health … if I can do it so can they, but … maybe one day.
I love all of the recipes and tips to help me live healthy and take better care of my family!
Your books, recipes and info have helped me improve my health which includes stabilizing my blood sugar, and I am losing weight!
Even though I drastically cut my carbs beginning in late October, I had only lost 10 lbs and was discouraged. Even though I was being pretty meticulous I was just not losing weight, and did not have the energy surge everybody talks about. I purchased the Advanced Keto package on 1/19, and it has made a big difference for me! In two weeks I have lost 8 lbs, and I haven’t even added in exercising yet! My hypoglycemic episodes have vanished and my anxiety is gone, gone, gone. For me that is HUGE! I can’t believe how even I feel! I also have to mention your recipes are fantastic and I feel like I am eating something I would order off the menu at a restaurant! Yesterday I made the Caramel Apple Dutch Baby Pancake and it was amazing!! I am so thrilled to have your fabulous cookbooks full of recipes I can make for guests too! Purchasing your plan was the best investment I have made in myself in years and I am grateful to have found your blog. Thank you Maria!
Keto adapting has been easier than I thought because of all the tools and tips Maria has given us. Thanks for all your hard work.
It has helped me with really great recipes that I can make.
i have not tried these yet but I see you use them and realy want to give them a try. Maria have recently gotten your 7day plan to get me kick-started. Can’t do this without out you. Thanks.
your recipes help me and the family stay on plan!
I love the keto adapted recipes!
First time since having my boys that I am back to my pre-baby weight (13 years!) and I was never hungry! Learned so much by reading, using recipes, reading some more. I honestly love the repetition of several concepts – helps reinforce what’s important. 🙂
It has allowed my to try different recipes and find foods that I can still enjoy (because I LOVE food) and still feel good after eating.
I love that I can enjoy desserts and not feel guilty about eating them!!! 🙂
Thank you for providing awesome recipes and healthy tips. You have helped me stay on track with my weight loss plan with your yummy recipes. 🙂
Great food, and our super bowl party that had amazing food that EVERYONE could eat.
My husband and dad have diabetes (Type 1/Type 2). I came across your blog while trying to find healthy, delicious treats and meals for them, and it has been an amazing source of more than recipes, but also knowledge on the way our bodies work. And now that I’m trying to heal from a soy allergy that I believe was caused by my birth control, I am also striving to eat low carb. Thank you so much for your time and effort you put toward helping us heal! 🙂
Keto Adapted has helped me to get over my fear of dietary fat. I have more energy, feel more satisfied after meals, and am snacking less!
keto has helped me get rid of acid reflux!
I have a lot more energy since eating the keto diet
What a wonderful Valentine surprise!
Eating Keto has helped me and my husband get off our T3 meds. This way of eating is SO much more satisfying than anything I have tried before! This has become a lifestyle now, not a “diet.”
I am partial to the very creamy texture of ChocoPerfection bars. Oh my, they DO satisfy!
I feel lighter and less stomach issues! Makes a big difference! !
sleep zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz it’s wonderful to sleep the whole night again!
Off my diabetes meds!
I love your Amazing thin crust pizza!! My boyfriend has gatric sleeve & enjoys the keto adapted recipes too.
Keto Adapted has shown me that it is possible to enjoy eating and be healthy all at the same time!
Keto adapted has given me the hope and determination to go on a ketogenic diet and so far I have lost over 10 pounds! This is huge for me – I have had juvenile rheumatoid (now idiopathic) arthritis since I was three years old. It was much harder for me to keep up with others because of the pain in my knees and ankles. I am finding since eating the Maria way that my joints bother me a little less! I am very excited about this and can’t wait to get the body I always wanted but never got even with exercise and other diets. I am getting married this year and one of my goals is to lose 30 pounds by my wedding… Well I am a third of the way there! I hope to attend one of Maria’s classes soon!!
Your delicious recipes have helped me to stay on a low carb diet.
Keto Adapted has helped me so much. My life was interrupted with severe autoimmune disease and other neurological chronic issues very early in my life. Even after years of natural eating and supplementation, I feared any time I had to eat out on the go and that the setback would be weeks and months. Keto Adapted has created changes in my body to where I love my food and am really nourishing my body to total healing, but I don’t fear the occasional eating out or special occasion because Keto Adapted means my body does not have the reactions it used to. I feel like Keto Adapted has given me my life back, and a mama to her little one and a wife back to her husby. Thanks for all you do. It truly makes a difference. Thanks for the giveaway as well! <3
Love all of your recipes. They really help me keep on tract. Thanks!
Keto Adapted has helped my son survive being on the modified atkins diet for seizures. Thank you for your wonderful recipes and commitment to health!
I love Keto Adapted IBS healed feel better than ever!
Hi Maria, without a doubt, this has been the best way of eating lifestyle I have found. I’ve been on virtually every diet out there…..and Maria’s way has been life changing. I started my keto adapted journey September 1, 2014. So far I’ve lost 10 pounds. “Only 10 pounds?” you say???? Yup, but I’ve dropped 3 sizes in my clothing, feel so much better and love that I don’t have to count calories, keep records of food intake and I laugh at people who are mortified when they hear that I eat bacon and eggs every morning!! I have a lot of healing to do. I take more medications than I want to but I am confident that one day I will get off those beta blockers and blood pressure meds! I also know that I will have that weight breakthrough when my body is ready! My sister is my constant companion with the keto adapted way of life and we are putting together our little personal family cookbook of our own keto classics like tomato bisque soup and chocolate chip cheesecake with chocolate mint crust!!!! Meanwhile, there’s no more constipation, IBS attacks, no more constant arthritic flare ups or brain fog, no more depression and no more lack of energy. Fibromyalgia? GONE! My medical doctor is totally on board with the keto adapted way of life and even my 82 year old Rheumatologist, who I expected to cringe when I told him about this, totally approved and told me I was smart to make this choice! So, bring on the chocoperfection!!!
That is awesome! Way to go! 🙂
Keto Adapted has helped us deal with candida.
Following the keto-adapted lifestyle and recipes has helped me to lose nearly 50 lbs. since July 2014!
Keto Adapted has helped me prepare, and eat great delicious meals with my diabetic family and treat my own underlying conditions!
Keto Adapted has helped me with recipes I can live with since I am diabetic and low carb is the only way I can keep my glucose readings down!
I feel so much better when I don’t eat refined carbs, especially sugar. Keto Adapated offers so many great recipes that allow me to have my cake and eat it, too (literally!).
Thankfull that Keto Adapted is helping me daily with managing my type II Diabetes
It has helped me find good dessert recipes that are healthy!
Although I was already doing a low carb diet, and down to my goal weight prior to finding you, Your website and blog have completely changed how I cook, live, and what I feed my family. I follow all of your advice and have made your recipes my cooking regime. In addition, I have referred so many friends that come to me for dietary advise, to go to your website, read, and learn. Thank you Maria, for all of the time you put into enriching and improving the lives of others.
Keto Adapted has helped me not get discouraged by sharing the success testimonials and great recipes.
I feel better about what I feed my kids.
Hi Maria, I am somewhat new to your site but Your keto Adapted recipes have showed me there is variety of foods to eat and some wonderful tasting and creative ways to enjoy food again. Your recipes have made a big difference in my eating habits and the way I think of food again. I have really enjoy trying several of your recipes and have recommended your books and site to family and friends. Thank you for all that you do!
Actually, I am just getting interested. I am afraid of the leap. Very unsure that I could even make a day. So I am learning.
Hmm, something seems to be wrong with rafflecopter but I’ll leave a comment anyway! I’ve learned to not eat as much protein as I have in the past.
Although I’ve done low carb to varying degrees in the past I never realized how I was unintentionally avoiding fat. Adding more healthy fats into my low carb keto-lifestyle has made a world of difference for me. I feel so much better!
always wanted to try chocoperfection lol
Maria has changed my life. I’ve been Keto adapted for one year now and loving it. Maria knows her stuff! I’ve lost 40 pounds so far and have totally changed my lifestyle. I don’t know exactly why, but the way Maria explains things seems to sink into my brain and helped me to make some much needed changes that are permanent. Thanks Emmericks!
Keto Adapted has helped me with all the recipes. I love everything I have tried and the books are wonderful. I love all the educational materials that come with the recipes!
I purchased your books and video’s a tad bit over a week ago and put what I’ve learned into practice! And I’ve lost 5.6 pounds 🙂 I am grinning ear from ear! I’d been bouncing 5 pounds around for months and at my lowest I was still 10.8 pounds from my goal weight! I’m now 9.6 pounds from goal weight! THANK YOU 🙂
Keto Adapted has helped me with keeping my blood sugar more stable, stopped my constant hunger feelings and keep my weight instead of losing weight. I have been able to get my hyper thyroid in check and I just feel amazing. I have also learned some many cooking tips and nutritional facts that have helped me on my health journey. Thank you!
Its helped with my blood sugar, I don’t want to end up like my parents.
Keto adapted has changed my life by helping me lose weight and feel great!
Keto has helped me really think about all the different healthy substitutions I can cook and bake with!
Maria I am so grateful to have found your blog. I have started the keto adapted diet the first week of January and am down 7 pounds. My husband is down 10 (of course). Thanks for all you do!
I’ve been learning lots about low carb and keto adapted health. I had never heard about keto adapted until your website. I also learned about ChocoPerfection from you! Best chocolate bars ever!!!!
I am learning about Keto and found your sight. Thanks for sharing!
I am new to the keto-adapted way of eating: your website is full of inspiration to make these healthy choices! Thanks!
Your cookbooks have been my saving grace. I am a Type 1 diabetic and I’m pretty proud of my A1C numbers since I’ve adopted the keto lifestyle
It’s really helped my husband! His skin has cleared up and his cholesterol has lowered.
Being on the keto diet has helped me with my health issues!!! Maria’s recipes are awesome!!!!
I have lost 40 lbs and cleared up my skin. It’s been a fantastic way of life
New to Keto eating – battling with the nay-sayers but enjoying how after two weeks I feel better. Very confused with these chocolate bars – they appear high in carbs to me – 24 carbs per bar – net carbs low, but are we supposed to be looking at net carbs – I thought no?
It has helped me to stay away from grains and sugar and to feel good about what I eat!
I am so thankful to have found this site. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 21. At the time I had only the absence of menses as a symptom. I was 120lbs. No extra hair. Thyroid was fine. GTT was great. It was a sonogram for pelvic pain that spurred the blood work and diagnosis.
Fast forward 11 years, my husband and I had been trying for over a year to conceive. He got checked out and came back normal. When I went to see my GYN she mentioned I might want to “cut back on carbs” which at the time I thought that was nuts. (Calorie is a calorie school of thought) I had recently gained up to 196lbs, really quickly and the calorie counting wasn’t working. So I decided to do some research about low carb and fertility. After finding some studies on the national institute of health I thought I would give it a go.
I have now had 4 consecutive cycles under 40 days. (That has NEVER happened to me before) I have lost 22lbs. And I tell everyone about these recipes!!! I could never do it without this site. I have photos of my attempts at your recipes all over my facebook. My husband (who eats nothing but junk) even raves about them.
Keto Adapted has changed my life. I have lost 60 pounds and counting. I feel amazing and haven’t felt healthier. I have such a healthy relationship with food now.
The keto lifestyle has helped me get over my fear of fat and realize that grains and sugar are what really cause detriment to my body and mind.
Keto Adapted has helped me increase my energy – both physical and mental. It has also helped clear my skin from breakouts and eczema – yay!
It has helped me eat healthier lose weight and with some inflammation issues.
keto has taught me the true healthy eating for myself, physically and mentally. too many healthy benefits and changes to mention. I refer alot of people to Maria!

Maria and keto adapted has helped me with great information and recipes to keep me satisfied with healthier alternatives and recipes that keep me on my journey to a “healthified” lifestyle
It has definitely given me a better understanding of food and how it affects our bodies.
I have really appreciated your information. After the last year with my Dad, neighbor & Aunt passing away, my daughters tragic car accident and my motorcycle accident, my body had more stress than it could handle. The Dr. said medication, but I started reading. Thanks to your site, I am managing the stress and my blood work is almost back to normal! Thank you!!
Just found keto Friday January 23, 2015. Started keto (as a experiment) Monday January 26, 2015. Found Maria a few days ago and cant stop reading!! I started keto for two reasons…1. I was having a hard time losing weight. This is lifestyle is completely out of the norm for me so I figured what the heck. The “right” way has not worked for 12 yrs. the second reason is my 13 year old son was diagnosed type 1 diabetic (Blood Glucose 889!!!) one year ago on Feb 12, 2014. The greatest Valentines gift was we where able to take our son home from the hospital Feb 14!! I’ve got to find a better way for him!!!!! I’ve just purchased four cookbooks so i can make low carb healthy food for not just him but the rest of my family. Thank you Maria for sharing your incredible gift.
After doing HCG and loosing a bunch of weight and hair I realized that my current diet was not sustainable. My neighbor brought over the Sweets cookbook and I was hooked! I have been eating Keto Adapted for about a month and am still loosing weight (I have 20lbs to go) but not hair and I feel great! I now own all the books and my cupboard is sugar and grain free. My oldest has lost 7lbs as well and she is a sugar fiend! We are also taking the Mood and Cravings supplements. I have been making pancakes, French fries, zucchini bread, pasta with zucchini and cauliflower rice and tatters and everyone loves it! I’m still trying to master the “Purple Power” bread (that’s what the kids named it)and the Protein bread, but I’ll get it!
Thanks for all the great info and recipes I’m looking forward to being Keto Adapted forever!
Maria and Keto Adapted has helped me lose weight, feel great and become healthier! My husband is starting to eat better now too.
Keto Adapted has *definitely* given me myriads of recipe ideas! Helps the most with the keto “blahs” when I just get tired of eating the same things day-in-day-out, especially when all I want is something sweet! I have countless blog posts bookmarked on my computer, it’s crazy. Maria is fantastic!
keto has allowed me to manage my health problems without meds and i feel so much better
I love all the tips and hints!! Great recipes too!!! Thanks Maria!
Keto adapted helped! Lots of good tips and recipes!
I’m in the last year of my Master’s program. During my bachelor’s I’d blown up to 265. I had moments when I could reduce my weight by 30 lbs or so then I would get stressed out and back it’d come. This time, I went with a keto lifestyle, which I wasn’t sure I would be able to do during my intense masters. At first the weight started to fall off, I didn’t do any tracking for the first 30lbs. After that, I got serious. I have no lost 55lbs and have 55 more to go. I am exercising, eating the keto way, and surviving my masters which entails 6 classes, full time job, part time internship, and of course my beautiful family. It has not been easy to make it through this program, but it has been doable to add in the keto lifestyle even with all this craziness. This summer I plan on purchasing the recipe books so that I can have all the recipes.
Thank you for helping me figure out what I needed to change so that it will stay for the long run and not just give me temporary dips.
Way to go! 🙂
This way of eating has helped my thyroid, skin, weight and ENERGY!!
It has helped me realize that going on this lifestyle doesn’t mean I have to give up sweets!
I just found your site and am looking to reduce sugar etc.in my cooking. Thanks!!
Keto Adapted has been such an awesome source! I find the recipes here so much better than so many other keto blogs. I love having all these great options.
Although I have been following Maria’s for one year plus, I have now started to eat sugar and gluten free. I to love sweets. I just pulled out the starbucks lemon loaf from the oven. It smells so good. I’ve made some amazing dishes thanks to Maria. And, I think my husband may come on board. Yay!! Thank you Maria!!!
I have followed you for a little while now and am always happy to find such amazing tips and recipes on your site. I absolutely love your cheese curd pizza crust. Out of all the recipes I have found for pizza, I love yours the best!
You seriously need to come to my house and make me fat bombs! They all look so pretty and yummy! Also, thank you for your info regarding keto and fertility. I have PCOS, and have been told I am infertile as a result. It would be nice iif keto kicked my body into gear and allowed me to conceive.
Yes, I have helped many clients with PCOS. This lifestyle is great. 🙂
Keto Adapted has given me validation for what I have always thought was the right thing to do. Thank you Maria for all of you expert advice in your books and on your blog.

The weight is not coming off, but I feel so much better…
I grew up with headaches everyday and IBS. After changing my diet completely 4 years ago I rarely have headaches or get sick! Still faithfully following you and feeding my family the healthified way. no going back for us!!! I love baking and cooking and you have made it possible to stick with it! thank you
I’ve known about Atkins for years, but I had never heard of Keto , at least as a diet. I love all the options I’m finding, the recipes, the helpful hints, the encouraging testimonies, it’s great. I get so bored with food, it is so nice to have a place to go for more ideas. Thank you! 😀
Great recipes are very helpful on my journey to keep my blood sugar stable without all the meds I dont have to take anymore
Love all the recipes to help with this journey!

Less constipation. TMI?
I don’t worry about calories, I eat when I am hungry. I have lost weight, dropped 4 sizes without really trying.
Keto proves that foods can heal you.
I’ve found several recipes on your site that have helped me stick to my keto eating style. I love being able to fill a craving in a better, healthier way.
Because I LOVE chocolate
I am new to keto and have been gleaning info and recipes from you site. Thanks for opportunity
Love all Your Health Tips!!
i just found your site and am looking forward to all the helpful hints and ideas recipes i will get from this great blog
I’ve lost that hard to loose weight and realized that I had some health issues that needed to be fixed.
I’ve learned how to make sweets without guilt! I just learned today about baking extracts (alcohol-based) versus baking flavors (glycerine-based). Alcohol-based extracts dissolve into water-based applications, but separation may occur when extracts are added to an oil base. Who knew?
Keto Adapted has really helped inspire me to eat healthier, & I have also gotten recipes from the blog!
I’m so glad I was introduced to your books. I’m on a mission to transform the health of my family while still enjoying delicious foods. Thank you.
It helped me to find non fatty food as a lover of chocolate
This site has given me new, delicious ideas to use coconut oil, butter, and drippings. I’m not just swallowing all of my fat off the spoon anymore! 😉
Keto Adaptive is my new lifestyle and very grateful for it! THANK YOU!
Keto adapted has helped me learn that its high fat and moderate to low protein, something that I was missing doing low carb in the past.
This chocolate makes me feel like I am having a little cheat with just one square at a time!
Thanks for all your useful information and great recipes!
I learned so much reading you and also found quite a lot of good recipes I want to try! I also want to thank you for all your work and time for us out there. You rock!
You helped me with recipes that made it possible for me to be gluten free without loading up on junk carbs from store-bought GF items. Thanks!
You have helped me keep up to date on the correct information and provided me with lots of delicious recipes to keep up this lifestyle 🙂
The site has helped me find recipes for good supper ideas. I really like the lasagna roll-ups!
Your recipes and methodology are quickly becoming the welcomed “normal” at our house! We have 4 preeteen/teenage girls, and they are ALL so happy eating this way! Dad and I aren’t feeling too shabby either! Thank you!
I have always been a sweets person, but when I decided I needed to lose weight a couple years ago, I went low carb/ low fat.. I lost weight but I had so little energy and I couldn’t eat sweets without feeling extremely guilty. Keto Adapted and Maria’s recipes and advice has helped so much to have something to look forward to making, trying, enjoying. It has become such a great lifestyle change. I still have not tried the chocoperfection bars though!
The best recipe source I have and use every day….some of the recipes without changes, some of them I use with subtle changes. Some ideas are truly brilliant!
KETO ADAPTED HAS HELPED ME EXPAND MY KNOWLEDGE OF THIS LIFESTYLE AND HELP ME TO APPLY THE PRINCIPLES IN MY LIFE
Your website helped me stay off medication while enduring gestational diabetes, Keto has helped me NOT get Type II after the birth of my son. If you get Gestational, you run a much higher risk of developing Type II, so it is a way of life I am adjusting to in order to stay off medication and be around longer for my kiddos 😀
Keto adapted has helped me lose weight and get my asthma under control! I love eating this way!
