Down 40 lbs and Dr. took me off 2 meds yesterday - only 1 more and will be done in 3 months! That was the goal - by Christmas - no more meds! Her first words when she saw me was 'Holy crap!' Also BONUS for the first time in over 15 years, all my blood work was in normal range! I cried when I saw that. So happy! - Jodi K. Phoenix, Arizona


In comparison to establishing my successful career, the time and investment in building a healthy eating and exercise lifestyle was not quick, easy, or for the faint of heart. I experienced steps forward, steps backwards, and had to figuratively "pay to get out of jail"!  The weight I put on in over 40 years time, and my ingrained bad habits, 'died' a very hard death.  Once I embraced Maya's program, and looked inside myself to find the emotional eating monster I had become, I finally said "I Am Enough!" I eat no processed foods, And I now crave organic freshly squeezed juices, green vegetables, fish, and free range organic chicken; foods that feed my body instead of making me sick! I have lost, and kept off, 55 lbs. I do not have a skinny frame, but now I have a deeper confidence about myself; I love me!  have lowered my blood pressure medications drastically, and I enjoy excellent health without colds or flu. Thank you Maya for giving me my life back! -Masha Coy, Huntington Beach, CA


Maya is fantastic! After being diagnosed with a thyroid disorder and gaining a substantial amount of weight, I tried every diet possible without luck, until I met Maya... I shed the excess pounds at a healthy rate. Maya is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and supportive, and has a great sense of humor. She truly lives her passion for food, health and nutrition which is contagious and inspiring…You are going to love this little ray of sunshine! - Wendy Flejter, PhD - Director of Genetics at Caris Life Sciences, Phoenix, Arizona


I just got home and checked my cholesterol records. The figures are even better than I thought thanks to you even though my cholesterol problem has always been said to be genetic. My LDL or bad cholesterol dropped from 132 six months ago to 67. I have never been close to 67 for LDL. The same is true for the total cholesterol - in six months it dropped from 195 to 132.  That is also the lowest point since 1988. The HDL or good cholesterol went up a little bit but basically stayed the same. The triglycerides were at 127 about a year ago and are now at 83.  The last time they were that low was in 2007. So this is a ringing endorsement to what you worked out for me - eat less carbs and sugars, eat what I like but increase fat and protein, eat mindfully and I lost 25 pounds and am healthier on all the blood work. I can't beat that. Thanks again for everything. - Donn, Phoenix, Arizona

How to stop the 'I Deserve' Habit

    It's Friday, I worked so hard all week I deserve a slice or two of pizza I stuck to my diet for days now, I deserve a bucket of popcorn with a movie.

How awful you feel about the choice and yourself after the decision.       Yes, you have worked your butt off, made different food choices and put in the extra work hours. You practiced the required discipline to make changes to your health and your life.   ... Read More >>

15 [really cool] side effects of cultivating new habits that lead to long-term weight loss

Photo Credit: © Mariya Mileva 2011     How you do one thing, is how you do everything. Sometimes we cannot see this in action in our lives until we begin to make difference choices in one area, like our health.
