Mary Roberts is a wife and mother who spent the majority of her life battling sugar addiction and various stages of obesity. Through living a Ketogenic Lifestyle, she has overcome obesity and maintains control over her food addiction and her health. She is a recovering compulsive over eater/binge eater and has over 5 years of food sobriety.
In addition to battling the "sugar monster" and the scale, she was diagnosed with high blood pressure and Type 2 Diabetes in 2008. Six years later she found herself, at age 42, weighing in at 260 pounds and suffering from fatigue, depression, frequent illnesses, and relying on various medications to control her conditions. She decided she couldn't go on living that way, and she set out to make a change.
Today, thanks to Ketogenic eating and heavy lifting, Mary maintains a healthy stable body weight. She is no longer on any medications, has normal blood pressure, and controls her diabetes through the food she eats. She has essentially reversed her diabetes, and her diabetic symptoms - such as numbness in her limbs, blurry vision, aches and pains, or diabetic levels of extremely high blood sugar- are no more. She also no longer has sleep apnea, has stopped snoring, has no more asthma/allergy issues, perfect cholesterol and has not be sick with even a cold or the sniffles in over 4 years. Depression and brain fog are completely gone, and she now enjoys mental clarity and regular feelings of happiness, joy, and freedom. In addition to overcoming all of her health issues, she has overcome a lifetime of binge eating, sugar/food addiction and obesity.
She is passionate about helping people navigate a ketogenic way of eating and overcoming their dysfunctional relationship with food. Keto literally saved her life and she wants other people to know they don’t have to suffer. Mary has been following a ketogenic diet/lifestyle for five years.
Mary has experience working with clients to overcome eating disorders such as binge eating disorder and bulimia. Several of her clients have reversed their Type 2 Diabetes, learned to manage their Type 1 without extreme highs and lows, managing their autoimmune diseases, overcoming obesity, lowering their high cholesterol, lowering their high blood pressure and overcoming food/sugar addiction.
Shout out to Kimmi for telling me what I already knew...but just didn't want to admit to; To Mary for being so relatable and the first person I thought understood my struggle (also for being a fashion diva--love your shoes although I'm sure I'd fall on my face); To Elaina for her sense of humor; To Jessyca for stressing the importance of family; To Katrina for proving that being better doesn't mean that you are going to end up perfect; To Michelyn for her cheery disposition and beautiful smile; To Linda who helps me focus on the journey; To Sabrina who reminds us to love life; To Mitzi who lives life to the fullest and has followed a journey so similar to mine (and to embrace the aging process as it can be beautiful-you own it!). To Lauren who has taken time to help me understand some of the weird stuff...Every coach has been inspirational, motivational, and educational to me. And it has been quite the experience to have had the opportunity to follow several of the coaches progress--because we are all a work in progress. I'm a tab bit jealous of people just starting out to have access to such great keto coaches--I wish I would have had the opportunity; it would have saved me a lot of trial and error. But, I am so happy to have found this family and I look forward to meeting many of you in Austin.
I heard about Keto in September of 2016 from a friend. I’d never heard about it before then so I looked into it. I’ve tried many times to loose weight but had no success. I hit 220 pounds and said that something has to change. So started Keto lost 40 pounds within 9 months then stalled and went awhile before getting coach Mary Roberts. She helped me fine tune to start losing again. I have been stalled again for awhile but I am in no rush I’ve went from size 22 to 12 regular jeans. Now I’m in a petite 12 no weight loss but my body is changing and healing so slowly. I am Ketoing on knowing this lifestyle is healing me. I also forgot to say I have Hypothyroidism and Keto is helping with that as well. I love this group and all the help we give each other.
A friend of mine introduced me to the Keto woe through the Ketovangelist website. It took me about a month of researching, reading everyone's posts, and listening to the podcasts. After getting as much knowledge as I could, I jumped all in in February 2017. The one person that really inspired me was Mary Roberts! I thought I was doing great until I hit a stall. I couldn't understand why! I never cheated, was doing extremely strict Keto, logging everything into MFP. I started doubting that this wasn't going to work for me. I had tried at so many diets, just to gain it all back or I was just simply starving myself! I didn't want to give up just 2 months in. So I decided to reach out and get a coach! The absolute best decision I could make! Not only did Mary know exactly why I stalled, but she gave me back the confidence that I needed to keep going. Once, I instituted her advice, I lost 12 pounds in a little over a month. She introduced me to the Ketovangelist Coaching site where the overwhelming support and friendship you get from the other coaches and members of the coaching group. If you are where I was, reach out to one of the coaches, come join our Ketovangelist Coaching group! It will be the best decision you can make to be successful on your journey!

I came to coaching after being Zero Carb for close to 2 years (which I began to heal a brain injury.) I am well versed in nutrition but something was amiss with my body and my ability to lose weight. Hiring Mary was my missing link. Mary was able to break down what I was doing correctly and what needed to change in order to reach my goals. Not only was she supportive with my ketogenic diet, she went above and beyond researching alternative ideas in order to help my healing. The knowledge sharing with this program is invaluable whether you are on track, stuck or simply questioning how you are doing. It’s worth every penny.
