MARIA EMMERICH (Contributing Chef) struggled with her weight throughout high school and college despite doing exactly what she was supposed to do: eating low-fat and exercising a lot. She decided there had to be a better way. Eventually she discovered that a ketogenic diet was able to heal her IBS and acid reflux and improve her health in innumerable ways. Today Maria runs a thriving nutrition consulting business, and her clients have found that a ketogenic diet also improves problems with high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome, and more—weight loss is just a bonus. She truly understands the connection between food and how it makes us feel.
Maria is the international bestselling author of several books and cookbooks on how to eat for better health, including The Ketogenic Cookbook (with Jimmy Moore), Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking, The 30-Day Ketogenic Cleanse, Keto Comfort Foods, Keto Restaurant Favorites, and Easy Dairy-Free Ketogenic Recipes. She lives in Wisconsin with her husband, Craig, and their two children, Micah and Kai. You can learn more about Maria and her services on her website, MariaMindBodyHealth.com.
