Well, to put it simply, I like to think of her as the “Keto Queen.” Maria Emmerich is a nutritionist who specilaizes in the ketogenic diet and exercise physiology, an amazing mom, and the author of many, many best-selling cook books.
Maria has been following a ketogenic diet for over 20 years. She found the ketogenic diet to be life-changing, as she struggled with weight issues and PCOS as a teen.She adopted this lifestyle and has never looked back. Maria went to college, where she studied exercise physiology and nutrition. She coaches and teaches people from around the world how to live a ketogenic lifetsyle.
Maria lives in Wisconson with her husband, Craig Emmerich, and two of the cutest little boys, Kai and Micha. If you follow Maria on Instagram, it is clear she is an amazing mom, who enjoys being active in the outdoors with her family. She is also very open about adopting her boys and the struggles that she had to overcome in her life. It hasn’t always been a “keto cake-walk” for her and her family, but she managed to perservere and change it all around. Maria and Craig also have a place in Maui, Hawaii, which they call the Keto Condo. It’s actually a little bit of a dream of mine to go there and hang with her family and the whales. I’m amazed how she has kept her boys following this lifestyle, and how it’s done so effortlessly... I know mama’s out there feel me!
Maria is an International Best Selling Author of many Cookbooks, including: The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse, Quick and Easy Keto Cooking, Keto Comfort Foods, Keto Restaurant Favorites, and Easy Dairy-Free Ketogenic Recipes...just to name a few. Two of her most recent books that are available is Keto Instant Pot and Keto Air-Fryer ( coming soon). Keto Instant Pot has many recipes that you can do in your instant pot or even slow cooker! If you love the air-fryer, you'll have to check out that one! I have made some recipes from her books, and they are delicious. Her website https://mariamindbodyhealth.com is also filled with a TON of tips, videos, and recipes.
