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









5 Ways to Cultivate a Habit of Trust

        There are always themes that seemingly reveal themselves during the time I spend with clients. This past week it was trust, one of the five core values, or keystone habits, I hold myself to.   When you decide to go big, shine your light, open your heart and create positive change in your life, trust is a required ingredient.    For me, it has been one of the hardest seeds to cultivate. Some days I am required to call it more than others, so I'll be the first to say that I am by no means the expert. However, the stories I have changed in my life, I have trus... Read More >>

End the 'need-to-make-up-for-it' habit: Restriction after Falling off the Plan

    You fell off the wagon; missed a stepping stone in your routine; binged last night; or ate more than you planned. Yet, you have bounced back because you are strong.   Yet that little rationalization voice lingers; whispering Just do some extra juicing this weekend. Have a day of clean eating and less food.  Or  Just avoid that chocolate for three days.   You immediately feel relief, until the next day, when you don't follow through with the plan you rationalized just quite perfectly…   I recognize this habit as one I've had and see it in my clients o...
