Emmerich, 42, struggled with her weight growing up, and she was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) when she was 16. 

The hormonal disorder causes enlarged ovaries with small cysts on the outer edges, and symptoms include irregular periods, weight gain, hair loss, oily skin, and acne. 

She started limiting her carbohydrates and following what is now known as the ketogenic diet, which helped her lose 80 pounds. 

Emmerich’s experience inspired her to pursue a degree in nutrition and exercise physiology before she launched her coaching business. She wrote her first book about following a keto lifestyle over two decades ago. 

The keto chef came up with the recipe 17 years ago, and it only required two ingredients: liquid and powdered egg whites

The best part is that it only requires two ingredients.

‘The center is like Wonder Bread,’ she insisted. 

Egg whites are a key ingredient in many of her recipes, especially when she is making foods that are traditionally packed with carbs. 

Emmerich recently shared her recipe for the ‘best doughnuts’ that are ‘sugar-free, zero-carb, and packed with protein.’ They are also only 72 calories apiece. 

She made the dough using six egg whites, a pinch of salt, four tablespoons of allulose — a low-calorie sugar that naturally occurs in plant foods — two tablespoons of gelatin, and a third of a cup of egg white protein.
