Maximize Your Metabolism
Want to boost your metabolism, lose weight and feel better? In this two hour class you'll get a better understanding of what your metabolism is, how you can accelerate it and just what foods will rev it up or put the brakes on it. Find out the biochemical problems with Low Fat Diets and why a breakfast of cereal and skim milk does not "do a body good." Maria's recipes and diet secrets have been featured on television programs, radio shows and magazine articles. She has also been interviewed many times on the importance of balancing your brain neurotransmitters and how that equates to weight loss success. The more sugar we eat, the more we crave it. If you start your day off with cereal and skim milk, you aren't going to be able to walk by the candy jar in your office at 2pm!
Check out these to breakfast comparisons:
Option 1: 1 cup SMART START Cereal (1 cup skim milk and banana)
472 calories, 105 carbs, 4g fiber = 25.25 tsp of sugar in blood (IF you didn't add any sugar!)
Option 2: 2 eggs, with 2 cups of mushrooms, peppers, onions
190 calories, 9 carbs, 3 fiber = 1.5 tsp of sugar in blood
Option 3: My homemade donut made with coconut flour
217 calories, 7.4 carbs, 4.6g fiber = 0.7 tsp of sugar in blood! To eat is a necessity; to eat 'healthy' is an art.
Find out the link between our blood sugar levels and what that does to our babies. We will also discuss which vitamins are essential for you, your baby and your children. Come to this class to find natural, holistic help for common problems during pregnancy such as heart burn and sleepless nights. A favorite part of this class is discovering the first foods to feed your baby…it's not rice cereal! Did you know babies don't even have the digestive enzyme for that? Maria's recipe secrets have been featured on multiple TV shows, radio programs, and magazine articles. Babies Welcome!

“ I was told by my doctor that if I didn't get gastric bypass surgery that I would die. I decided to try Maria's program first. Maria started easing me into her program by having me use supplements to help me sleep and changed to eating eggs for breakfast to kick start my metabolism. Just using these steps I lost 17 pounds in just 6 days! I know that I am on the right track now to a healthy lifestyle. ”
