Eating disorders and body dysmorphia plagued her for years.

A classically trained dancer, Maura Vega experimented with vegetarian, paleo, and IIFYM to maintain her beautiful curves.  But it wasn’t until she started following a ketogenic lifestyle that she was finally able to heal her body and repair her metabolism as well as her mind and her relationship with food.

Maura started Keto in June of 2016. After a 2-year battle with Postpartum Depression, following the birth of her youngest child she has been keto for almost 3 years now.  Not only have her symptoms of depression been drastically reduced, but her anxiety also.

Holistic Health Practitioner and host Tonya Fines sits down for this candid conversation with Fat Fueled Mom Maura Vega.


“I feel the best I’ve ever felt and it continues to get better. Seeing how impactful this lifestyle can be on our bodies, I decided to help transition my children to this healthy way of life in hopes that it would relieve them of some of the ailments they had.”  -Maura Vega
