Default Keto Adapted - Maria Emmerich

I lost 108 pounds through Ideal Protein. I think the programme is fantastic for weight loss and I would recommend it to anyone for this purpose. But I struggle with its Phase 4 for maintenance.

Spring boarding from what I learned on IP, I went on a Low-Carb Cruise a couple of years ago (Jimmy Moore, et al) and connected with a woman named Maria Emmerich (http://mariamindbodyhealth.com/)

Her principles are the same as IP. The difference is no packets. Maria has written approximately 10 cookbooks -- she is now internationally recognised. Her recipes are delicious, practical and convenient.

Her programme makes Phase 4 navigable for me and I can still include some of my favourite ip foods.

Hi, I have a question. I joined a weight management program, & the doctor there has put me on an 800 calorie diet. basically she has asked to cut all direct carbs like rice wheat, grain & eat lentils, vegetables, salad. Basically no grains, no potatoes, no bheet, no banana, no mango. Is that safe to do it over an extended period of time ?

I started it 13 days back & have lost 5 lbs. Is that safe ? & she is giving me high dosage of chromium & multi-vitamins. Will it stress my body or will these help my body ?

There is actually no bodily necessity for Carbohydrates as there is for Proteins and Fats:

"Although there is certainly no evidence from which to conclude that extreme restriction of dietary carbohydrate is harmless, I was surprised to find that there is similarly little evidence to conclude that extreme restriction of carbohydrate is harmful. In fact, the consequential breakdown of fat as a result of carbohydrate restriction may be beneficial in the treatment of obesity (7). Perhaps it is time to carefully examine the issue of whether carbohydrate is an essential component of human nutrition."

Agree. The body can absolutely do all of its functions without any carbohydrates at all. Although this runs contrary to much of the current nutritional dogma, new science is bearing out the truth of it.
