019: Maria Emmerich: Better Brain, Better Health + Weight lossJason Jones
In Episode 019: Maria Emmerich discusses how balancing brain chemicals with food and supplements can drastically improve our health.
Maria Emmerich struggled with her weight through high school and college, despite doing exactly what she was supposed to do: eating low-fat and exercising. She decided there had to be a better way, and eventually discovered that a ketogenic diet was able to heal her IBS and acid reflux and improve her health in innumerable ways. Maria runs a thriving nutrition consulting business, and her clients have found that a ketogenic diet also improves problems with high blood sugar, metabolic syndrome, and more — weight loss is just a bonus. Maria is the author of eight books and cookbooks on how to eat for better health. She lives in Wisconsin with her husband, Craig, and their two children, Micah and Kai.
