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 bulemic, compulsive over eater/binge eater and has over 6 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 only ben sick twice in the 6 years she has been keto. 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 over 6 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 their food/sugar addiction.
Mary currently has one-on-one coaching openings for Emerald and Ruby only and for small group coaching.

Seriously getting a Ketogenic Lifestyle Coach was the best decision I ever made. The amazing Mary really helped me work out what worked for me. The time I had with her helped me to be able effectively tweak this WOE to really suit me. She gave me the confidence to experiment and continues to inspire me. All of the coaches here are truly wonderful and if you can afford it will be the absolute best investment in yourself.
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.
After doing a lot of research I decided to try Keto, honestly just to see if it would work for me. Like so many others, I've tried everything out there. I was not looking for a diet, but a WOL that is sustainable and would allow me to reach my goals. I didn't know much about Keto, so fumbled in all the FB groups asking tons of questions, until I heard about Ketovangelist coaching and had to reach out. I chose Mary Roberts because I felt a connection with her story and signed up for group coaching. Best move I've made in a long time!!! Mary is an outstanding coach and always there when I need her. I continue to learn and receive support from the group. I can't do it without them and plan to continue until I reach my goal. Join us - you won't be sorry!
I've been vegan (even raw and fruitarian) and vegetarian for around 15 years. When I turned 40, my body just struggled. My hair fell out in clumps, my skin was very dry and felt like crepe throughout the day, my body was tired. Most people come to keto wanting to lose weight but, with Mary's help, I focused on nourishing myself. Mary taught me to trust the process and just eat to hunger. That was tough for me: I was afraid of eating so much, I was afraid of all the fat and calories. After a couple of months, I did gain weight but that came with thick hair, moisturised and nourished skin, abs that I never thought I could have, and no more carb face. I highly recommend getting a Ketoevangelist Coach and being part of this knowledgeable and supportive group!
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.
