Farmer understood perhaps better than anyone else at the time the value of appearance, taste, and presentation of sickroom food to ill and wasted people with poor appetites ; she ranked these qualities over cost and nutritional value in importance. Onions and garlic can be dried for a few days in the field and root crops such as potatoes benefit from a short maturation period in warm, moist surroundings, during which time wounds heal and the skin thickens up and hardens. I feel cutting out grains and sugar has helped my health. Does your book help with plateaus? Some clients come to us with lots of free time for a health and fitness project. December 10, at 7: The best nutrition and lifestyle information science has to offer.
It's no big secret:
So important, in fact, that without it, most people don't have a chance of actually fixing their nutrition and getting in shape, no matter how much information they have. That's what we use at Precision Nutrition. In some ways, it's the direct opposite of a diet. And it's why our clients have been so successful.
If "doing a diet" means overhauling your life on Day One and adopting a set of "rules" to follow, a nutritional progression model builds habits intelligently and sustainably over time.
At Precision Nutrition, we've spent the past few years refining and perfecting our approach. So much so that our system is known by some of the top coaches in the fitness industry as "the best-kept secret in nutrition.
We don't just give people information and send them on their way. Instead, we teach them how to use that information, and put it into daily practice.
And when people have the best information, specific habits to follow, and know how to fit it all into their busy lives Learn how to take control of your nutrition and transform your "bad habits" into a healthy lifestyle. After working with nearly , clients with the Precision Nutrition method, we've learned what truly works when it comes to getting in better shape and leading a healthy lifestyle. The trouble was, unless you were a coaching client of Precision Nutrition and worked directly with us, there was no way to get all that useful information.
With the nutrition industry confusing everyone by pumping out diet after diet and arguing over who's "nutrition philosophy" is better, we felt morally obligated to give people another option. So recently, we worked hard to put everything we've learned about nutrition, eating well, and lifestyle habit-change into one complete program: If you're someone who wants to take control of your own health and fitness, make a lifestyle change, or just learn our best-kept nutrition secrets In other words, not only do you have access to our online fitness and nutrition blog, we actually ship you a package with everything you need to begin your journey toward making change and taking control of your own health and fitness.
Before beginning any nutrition plan, it's important to start with the right mindset. In this introductory guide to Precision Nutrition we provide an overview of the program and present 10 success strategies guaranteed to help you stick with the plan.
After a whole page of me railing against the word "diet" you're probably surprised to see the title of this guide. This isn't a "diet" as you know it, but rather a complete, beginning-to-end system that fills in the blanks and puts everything into proper perspective. We cover everything from food selection to meal timing to nutrition program design. In short, it's everything you need to start making change. I'll show you the exact steps you need to take right away if you're going to succeed.
Every step is laid out in detail, and in less than 45 minutes you'll have done precisely what most people never think to do. Most of us are on-the-run all day long and don't always have time for a "healthy meal. Filled with healthy recipes that fill you up and taste great, our Super Shake Guide is customizable depending on your body type and goals. All you need is a blender. You've got a job, a family, friends, hobbies, and more.
What you don't have is endless time to plan and prepare meals. With the 5-Minute Meals Guide, however, you'll have dozens of delicious Precision Nutrition meals that can be made in under five minutes. Great nutrition has never been this convenient. Everyone can improve their health and fitness by eating more plants. Unfortunately, many vegetarians don't eat that well.
This section helps those who choose not to eat meat adapt the Precision Nutrition principles to their way of life. Just like the 5-Minute Meal Guide, we give you a complete list of dozens of delicious, perfect plant-based Precision Nutrition meals that can be made in under five minutes.
As your body changes, your needs change. And so your nutrition plan must change too. There's only one way to continue to get results, and that's to tailor your diet specifically to your body, your goals and the results you've gotten in the past. This guide shows you how. At Precision Nutrition, we have a battery of assessments, questionnaires and tests that our clients undergo regularly.
Coupled with the Precision Nutrition System, these assessments allow us to get rapid results with clients. In the Measurement Guide I'll teach you exactly what to do Believe it or not, the most challenging aspect of eating well for most people is not changing their body in the short term, but rather maintaining it in the long term. In other words, it's easy to lose weight. It's hard to keep it off. In this Maintenance Guide, we'll show you exactly how to keep the body you've worked so hard for.
From the very beginning, Precision Nutrition has incorporated what we've learned is the critical component of a successful nutrition program: In the Support Guide, we show you how to make use of the support around you. And if the people around you aren't as supportive as you'd like, we show you how to make use of our circle: No, these are NOT e-books.
While we have released books in the past as downloadable PDF e-books, that's not what the Precision Nutrition guides are. The Precision Nutrition System is a print product that will be sealed and delivered to your door. It contains all 11 guides, conveniently separated by tabs so you can quickly flip from section to section.
The beauty of the binder system is that it's completely "modular," in that you can add more sections to it as your needs change. In our online fitness and nutrition blog, you'll find hundreds of articles, worksheets and much more. That's a good question. But let me turn that around on you real quick: How do you know your nutrition plan is good? Is it because you "try to eat healthy? If you don't already have the body you want, then your nutrition plan is not good enough. So if you want to know whether the Precision Nutrition System is right for you, then just ask yourself this question:.
But if you answered no, then I can say without the slightest hesitation that the Precision Nutrition System is exactly what you need. The Precision Nutrition System is in stock and will ship within days after your order is placed. Shipments within Canada are shipped from our Toronto warehouse via Canada Post.
And overseas International destinations are sent via FedEx International. All orders are trackable. North American orders typically take days for delivery and overseas orders typically take days for delivery.
However, you have immediate access to our online fitness and nutrition blog, so you can start learning immediately. The information in the Precision Nutrition System is something I want everyone to have access to because it's so powerful and different. I honestly believe it will change the lives of thousands of people.
That's why for the next 2 hours, I'm going to give a big discount to the people who are ready to learn the best information science and real-world research has to offer.
At Precision Nutrition we like to reward people who stop talking and start doing. So here's the deal: You have 45 days to review all the material, and if for whatever reason it's not for you, just return it and we'll give you your money back. We've taken the healthiest ingredients and whipped them into nearly pages of delicious culinary creations. We've included detailed cooking instructions and ideas for improvisation. Every recipe is photographed in beautiful color to show you just how appetizing healthy food can be.
This is a different kind of nutrition program. Make changes to your body by learning what "good nutrition" really means for you. Discover the only information you need to lose fat, gain muscle, and improve your health.
Backed by science and research with real people; not by fads. With the Precision Nutrition System, we're aiming to fix that. Used by the world's best fitness professionals and organizations. Trusted by thousands of real people worldwide From recreational exercisers, to elite athletes, to people brand new to the whole 'eating better' thing. It's no big secret: We all know we need to eat better. I've worked in the nutrition and fitness industry for over 2 decades. The thing I'm most proud of, though, is the work I do with my Precision Nutrition team.
In our coaching research program, we take the most up-to-date science and actually test it with real people to see what works and what doesn't work.
There's nothing else like it in the world. Of course, I don't blame the people who want to make a change and get in shape. I feel for them, because those are the kind of people we work with every day. They make this whole nutrition thing way more confusing and polarizing than it needs to be.
I've been around long enough to see wave after wave of new diets. They're all essentially saying the same thing: The finality of it.
The arrogance of it. It's my way or the highway. Let me say that again: If you want to take control of your nutrition and lead a healthy lifestyle, then there is absolutely no "best diet" that you should follow. Why there isn't a "best diet.
You can imagine the diversity of the people who come to us. Some clients come to us tall and thin. Others come short and stocky.
Some clients come to us eating lots of meat every day. Others come eating no meat at all. Some clients come to us with an incredibly low budget. Others come with an unlimited budget. Some people are emotional eaters who tend to overeat when they're stressed or alone.

After 3 years of struggling to control them, we have been following keto for about 3 weeks and I can already see how much more alert she is.
I had tried Atkins before and lost a lot of weight. Unfortunately, I gained it back when I went back to my old eating habits. Then I had a heck of a time trying to get back into ketosis. I read in your books that I was eating too much protein and so I used the keto calculator to figure out what I should be eating. So far I have lost 30 pounds on my own but I think I need more information in order to solve some other problems that I have. I have been struggling trying to lose weight.

I have eaten a keto diet in the past, and lost weight, but after doing therapy for disordered eating I have a very hard time following any kind of diet — even though I want to, and need to, for my health.
I have been on the keto diet for about three weeks, I have lost 5 lbs and feel great! Before I started I had headaches daily, tired, and always bloated. Overall I just felt poorly. So happy a friend introduced this new qay of living to me. I am young and thin, but had blood work done and to the shock of my doctor had high fasting glucose and a high a1c.
Since eating low carb and high fat, I have steady energy, my acne has cleared and I feel more mentally level and even. Thank you for helping me to get to this place! The keto lifestyle has improved my asthma, SVT, and arthritis. We started this lifestyle change as a family and have had nothing but positive effects.
Both my husband and I have lost around 75lbs each and have kept it off as well as no longer having to take the medications we were on. My daughter and son are now in the desired weight range for their height.
My daughter was heavy and diagnosed with precocious puberty, but by eating this way her hormones and growth regulated without the aid of synthetic hormones! The pediatric endrocronlolgist was very impressed with how we did as a family! I love my cook books and my binders that I keep with printed keto recipes and I would love to have this book in my collection. For most of my adult life, I struggled with weight. Even my wedding day was not as happy as it could have been because I was so self-conscious and embarrassed about my appearance.
My husband is constantly remarking about how amazing I look. Indeed, he is also adapting to the keto lifestyle and is losing weight and getting healthier. Our year anniversary is approaching, so I plan on taking my oversized, tent of a wedding dress and getting it altered into a sexy cocktail dress for a fabulous night out with my husband!
But more importantly, I plan to live a long and healthy life with him and our two kids. Nothing is better than that! I started low carb reading everything I could. I had read some about Keto but only enough to know what it is. Keto was a struggle for me at first because it seemed like I was doing everything I had been told not to do, for as long as I could remember, with regards to food and eating right. I still struggle some days because it was so ingrained in my mind.
It has really changed my mindset and the way I think about food. My thanks to you for all the hard work you do to make the transition easier for many of us! I feel cutting out grains and sugar has helped my health. I am losing weight slowly, so obviously I can use some more information and help.
Thanks for the chance to win! No more laundry list of pharmaceuticals and only getting worse! Thank you for the opportunity to win this book. I have not tried Keto but had a great experience with a similar diet a while back.
I have regained the weight due to many issues and am hoping to lose it again. I barely fit in my clothes and would love to have more energy and be more confident in myself.

I would love to read your new book, 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse.
I have lost 34 lbs this year by eating Keto. My husband who is Type2 diabetic has lost over 40 lbs. We both have about 75 lbs each to go. Took me 3 months to lose the last 5 lbs. Thank you for helping so many of us find health through your ketogenic recipes. I started eating Keto after I had weight loss surgery at the recommendation of my Dr.
I was in severe pain from arthritis and fibromyalgia. My kidneys were starting to function poorly from diabetes and high blood pressure. I could not even walk to the door if a store much less shop.
The pain left almost immediately after starting this lifestyle change. Yes I had surgery, but changing to eating Keto has literally saved my life. I would love to have your book. I am now 54 and am still keeping the faith. Perhaps, the angels are helping me win! I need a little help getting there!
I sleep better, have more energy, my appetite is low and I do not crave unhealthy things. I also lose weight. My hubby and I have lost lbs combined and we are always looking for more ways to simplify eating keto.
Thank you so much for your educating cookbook. When my husband and I started this way of eating, in April of , I had a hard time finding information online. I still have about 10 more to go, but feel very confident that through this lifestyle the fat loss will continue.
Thank you again for sharing your passion for good health and research with us! How has the Ketogenic diet helped me?? How do I count the ways? Hormone imbalances and painful periods Gone!
Our keto journey began in August He was overweight and started to follow a ketogenic diet. The weight just fell off of him and he was no longer Type 2 Diabetic within a few short months. After a visit with another friend of ours we found out that her husband, an ultra marathon runner, also followed a ketogenic lifestyle…so my husband started reading.
He wanted to try keto but I was still skeptical. By December he had lost about 30 pounds while I had only lost a few pounds. Around that same time, I had my semi-annual visit with my oncologist due to a breast cancer diagnosis in I mentioned to her that my weight was a concern because I had gained so much during treatments and that my husband had started a ketogenic eating plan.
Fast forward to December 10, …my husband has lost over lbs and still loves everything about the ketogenic lifestyle, especially all the new clothes he got to buy! I saw my oncologist again last week and she almost had me in tears telling me how happy she was for me.
I have energy again, the joint pain from all that extra weight is gone, and I am sleeping better than ever before. I started keto recently and was given Ketogenic cooking and I enjoyed. Whether I win or not I setup a preorder. I want to thank you for sharing so many healthy recipes! I have been on this Keto diet for several months now and I like how it makes me feel.

I have your books, but I think this one may give me the step-by-step guidance I need. I know a ketogenic diet has helped others with chronic pain, sleeping, hormone craziness and menopause, and weight loss. I so want that! Are there recipes that are egg and dairy free? Our family fell off the wagon the past month or two. A new 30 day keto reboot book is definitely something that we NEED. Thanks for having this giveaway! I absolutely love all of your recipes!
I try at least one new one a week. Keto has been extremely good for me. Keep up the good work! I have been enjoying your cookbooks for the last 3 yrs, they have helped me keep,my pounds off. I initially had bariatric surgery to lose weight but knew it was only a tool, I still have to do the work.
I researched and chose to follow a low carb lifestyle which led me to learn more about Keto. I went against my nutritionist and surgeon advise and started my Keto journey 3 yrs ago. Thank you for all your knowledge you share through your blog and books!
My sister and I both suffer from autoimmune issues. We have turned to your recipe books for sanity and to maintain the joy of cooking and creativity.
I happen to be the queen of Keto cupcakes- thank you for being inspiring! KETO has helped me lose weight, yes. But it also has halted my endometriosis. I have just recently about 3 months starting following your blog and slowly making changes in my diet. I am down 20 lbs and have lots of energy! This is a big deal for me as I am a 53 year old menopausal female and most of my same age or even younger friends are exhausted all of the time. Please allow me to explain: I made the switch to Keto in January Unfortunately I found Keto before I found you.
I had struggled with weight and eating healthy since High School, eventually losing 60 lbs with a proactive LCHF approach and a ton of working out. I turned to Keto to prepare for a kidney transplant. My Dad is a type 1 diabetic, in he received a kidney and a pancreas from an anonymous donor whose life had been cut short in a car wreck.
My Dad followed the counsel of his field leading Doctors. He was right back to the horrendous high carbohydrate low-fat diet all the Doctors swore was healthy, and thus he was right back to ravaging his own body. The pancreas failed in , and he went back to on Insulin. I knew, somehow, that my kidney would save him. I began preparing for the surgery and I decided that because this was something I would only be able to do once in my life I would do everything in my power to do it well.
I poured over pubmed for hours and eventually I began to find a common thread. The Ketogenic diet was associated with all the goals I had. For 6 months I tested my blood sugar, and my urine ketones multiple times each day, I used a Ketogenic — Intermittent Fasting protocol with a 3 hour weekly carb-up. My partner Sarah, thought I was insane, she would shake her head at the constant blood testing and strange consumption of massive amounts of fat coconut oil by the spoonful.
My Mom started calling me muscle man, because the minimal amount of fat I was carrying prior began to melt off me, FAST. Everyone wrote me off as crazy. I will never forget sitting in the waiting room at the University of Minnesota and the Nurse sprinting out to find me after seeing my test results.
My blood glucose was 41, she thought I was about to pass out. None of the Doctors were willing to address my deep ketosis test numbers, however my second set of numbers was phenomenal.
I got cleared to donate the kidney and we set the date. On the day of the operation, the transplant team runs all the blood tests again as a failsafe. My Dad's lead surgeon came into my room a few hours after the transplant was finished, he told me "your Dad has better kidney function now than he has had since before you were born.
After the transplant, my family slowly stopped thinking that I was a kooky nutcase with a conspiracy theory about the medical establishment.
Obviously I was onto to something, but Keto seemed very extreme to them after watching the cold calculated precision and testing protocols I had used.
I on the other hand moved toward a more paleo diet, but it didn't take long to desperately miss the way I had felt while I was Keto. I decided to switch back to the diet I had used prior to the transplant. This is when I found you Maria! I was reading an article I found on Dom D'Agostino's blog out loud to my partner Sarah, she had recently found a lump in her breast and was extremely concerned about cancer.
The article was highlighting the Otto Warburg theory that cancer cannot live without sugar, and addressing the rise in cancer, Alzheimer's, and diabetes as sugar consumption rises.
Suddenly Sarah was very interested in this strange diet that flew in the face of everything she had ever been taught about healthy eating. This was my opportunity, and I seized it! Sarah poured over it all day, and my life has never been the same since. Since then, it has become much easier for me to espouse the benefits of the Ketogenic diet.
I've given half a dozen copies of that book to friends and family as gifts, and it is always the starting point I give people when they want to go Keto. I couldn't convince my Mom to give it a shot, so I just convinced her personal trainer instead, and now guess who is going Keto? I'm very thankful for the work you've done and the wonderful impact it has had on my life and I look forward to reading everything you put out there.
I think this is related to Keto diet. I need to turn insulin resistance and gallbladder issues around. What you stated about hormone balance with fats and the keto lifestyle are definitely an encouragement to me. I want to make sure that I am truly following a ketogenic lifestyle so that I am successful! Have been on keto for over days, i have lost weight but most of all it has made me feel better with more energy.
Love this Keto lifestyle! I have almost all of Marias books too! My problem is I sometimes cheat. I love the Maria way. Never have felt this good. Would love to win a copy of your new book. My heart issues have even started to resolve. I need this in my life!! I have had a lot of success with the Paleo WOE, and I think Keto is an even better way to lose weight and change my lifestyle for good.
This book would be so helpful in putting me on the right path. All of the great recipes help me stay on track, and being on the ketogenic diet gives me a ton of energy! Thanks for the contest! I have struggled since I was little with ibs. And recently found out that lupus might be the cause of severe reactions in my body causing my body to regect alot of things out of no where especially food. Starting the keto way of life has helped more than I can ever imagine.
I will always notebook forward in this keto lifestyle! I love the idea of giving 30 days to get a good start. How has keto changed my life? Let me count the ways: I can get up out of a chair without pushing myself up on the armrest or table 3. I can get up from the floor 4. My cholesterol is down 5.
My liver enzymes are nearly back to normal 6. I enjoy buying clothes 7. I feel good about how I look 8. I feel better overall And, oh yeah, I lost weight! Marias information helped me get rid of migraines and my asthma! Now I feel much better, healthier and happier! I would love to win a copy of your latest book. I have been trying keto for about four months and have lost more than 30 lbs. My dad died from a stroke six years ago.

I live in Denmark and there are no books on the subject here. Keto had healed my adult acne! I would love this book to try and figure that out! Is this open internationally! The same goes for my health. Finding the keto way was like a signal saying THIS is the way. A Ketogenic way of eating helped me endure my treatments for breast cancer. I got off the sugar train, eliminated bad carbs and lost 20 lbs! I have more energy and no more migraine headaches. I am so excited for this book, I already pre-ordered it on Amazon.
But I could definitely use another copy to share with my family and friends. Not only has Keto helped me many of my friends are now Keto. I feel wonderful eating the keto way! I have gained and lost the same amount of weight many times. Always finally giving in to the temptation of sweets. I have lost those cravings! I feel in control! Just wish I had found this sooner! Her way works the best. No more brittle dry hair and itchy skin! No more cystic acne! No more allergies and post nasal drip!
No more depression or anxiety. My hair, nails and skin look healthy. The yeast infections are gone. I have so much energy and I can do so much now. I love to run and do body weight excersises. I used to hate to move it hurt so much. I have crazy muscle tone which I never had before. My periods are so much better and no more awful cramps!

I and my husband are doing keto and finally after years of trying to reduce body fat I can finally see the results with keto.
Wish I knew about it earlier. I just started keto about a week ago, and I love it so far. I have never said that with any other restricted eating plan before. I look forward to getting into ketosis and seeing long-term results. So looking forward to this book. I have already preordered it on Amazon. Would love to have it before then!! The Ketogenic diet has transformed my life! I have been diagnosed with several autoimmune diseases that had left me almost lifeless and hopeless.
Slowly my energy levels are raising and the excess belly fat is dwindling down. This way of eating is not just a diet its a total way of life that I absolutely love. I honestly believe this is the way we are created to eat for maximum health potential! Thank you Maria for your awesome recipes and your loving passionate inspiration to help become the best we can be. I am also a work in progress, only 2 weeks into my awareness of the ketogenic diet. Already I have noticed my sugar cravings are gone!
I am struggling a bit to adapt in some ways, but the more I read, the more I know I need to work on this. Thank you for all of your helpful information. I read all these people talking about all the fat they eat but nothing I read tells me how to get all this extra fat in my day.
Best wishes to you and yours and congratulations on your new book. Eating keto has eliminated the brain fog I suffered from my entire adult life. Maybe this book is what I need. Reading all of these stories makes me so sad. I have followed you for a few years , have your latest cookbook I love the protein bars..
I wish from the bottom of my heart that I could make the keto lifestyle work for me. I am in good health , just want to lose 15 lbs. I must be doing something wrong , and would like to see if your new cookbook cleanse would work.
I know this works. I did a 10 week keto diet and lost weight. However, I did not stick with keto like I should have. I need to truly make it a lifestyle. This book looks amazing. Eating Keto had helped my pcos so much!
I also have been able to lose weight so easily when in the past on other diets it was hard to or non existent. I need to switch things up and get the weight loss moving again and I think this book is just what I need!
The key to my real weight loss has been to cut out dairy and minimize protein to no more than 25 grams per meal. My massage therapist has been talking to me for years about your books and how your knowledge has helped her. Recently I have been diagnosed with epilepsy and my research along with my pilates instructor and of course my massage therapist has led me to you and your knowledge of the keto diet. I would love to be the winner and start this diet using the information in the book and work toward controlling my epilepsy through diet alone.
My husband and I lost a lot of weight by following a low carb diet. Thank you for all that you do. The Orange Crush shake is my favorite. Delicious and perfect after a workout. Looking forward to this book too! Thank you for all you do!
BTW, your boys are precious!! I think this is the best way of eating! My toes would go numb, my joints would ache, and my feet would get cold. Keep up the good work, Maria, I need more foods to eat! You so described me. This book would really help.
Decided that my winning copy will be going to my mom whose running out of options with chemo to fight ovarian cancer. I have been telling her about LCHF and keto for awhile.
