Chocolate Perfection! Interview with Mary Jo Kringas: Founder of Chocoperfection | No Comments | No TrackBacks
Chocolate Perfection! Interview with Mary Jo Kringas: Founder of Chocoperfection - ameliamontes.com Interview with Mary Jo Kringas: Founder of Chocoperfection At the top of his list was Mary Jo Kringas's Chocoperfection Chocolate bars. He included the company's website, just like I am doing now, www.chocoperfection.com (or click here). Wow, I thought. I'm going to order a sample now. And I did. I've been happily eating Chocoperfection chocolate ever since. And I've also gotten to know the wonderful Mary Jo Kringas! The first time I called the company, I expected to get someone else, not the founder and owner of Chocoperfection chocolates. But there she was on the phone with me, happily taking my order. And she is happy. She loves what she does and she knows her product. I've been ordering chocolate from Mary Jo for over a year. More than once I've told her that her chocolate in many ways has saved my life because every time I've wanted to "give up" and eat "whatever I want" despite the consequences (and there are serious consequences), I have the chocolate to eat: dark chocolate with or without almonds, milk chocolate, mint chocolate, chocolate with raspberries. After getting to know Mary when I would call in my order, I began to wonder how Mary Jo began her business. What led her to begin making chocolates without the sugar? I decided to interview her and bring her story to you, as well as offering you information on how to order her chocolates! What I learned is that Mary Jo is a jubilant, confident, amazing woman who survived a very difficult childhood-- and now her choice of business is helping many of us overcome our own struggles. Thank you, Mary Jo! Mary Jo Kringas: I'm 49 now and when I was a teenager, my height was 5'6", and my highest weight was 460 lbs. It's a totally different matter to go from being a fat person, to being a thin person than it is to always be a thin person. Most weight-loss books are written by people who have always been thin, and I know from experience that these books usually do not help with weight loss. Today I weigh 165 lbs. I'm still learning. mj_14_lr.jpg Mary Jo Kringas on her 14th birthday Mary Jo Kringas: Yes. Insanely hard. Mary Jo Kringas: I first want to go back to how hard it was to stop eating sugar. Mary Jo Kringas today with her Chocoperfection chocolate bars--- Mary Jo Kringas: I found out about making it because a lady at my church was using oligofructose as a sweetener and she was buying it on the Suzanne Somers website. Mary Jo Kringas: We use a chocolatier that is in Canada. It's a factory that specializes in chocolate. Mary Jo Kringas: Sugar comes from the sugar cane plant and there is no fiber in sugar. Mary Jo Kringas: I'm working on a recipe for Chocoperfection White Chocolate. Mary Jo Kringas: It's taken a lot of overtime. Mary Jo Kringas: Jimmy Moore's "livin' la vida low carb" website. Mary Jo Kringas: I measure my blood sugars. Mary Jo Kringas: Right. Mary Jo Kringas: I find my strips on ebay. I buy 250 strips (five packages of 50) for $75 on ebay. Mary Jo Kringas: My mother had Diabetes (type II) and was insulin dependent. My father passed away at age 47 of a heart attack. Within two years of starting insulin, my mother was on two other drugs to manage the side effects of the insulin and within ten years, she was on 17 medications. My mother passed away at the age of 83. She got everything from high blood pressure, heart trouble, cataracts. It was just remarkable how many different things she had wrong with her. She also had depression. My mother believed that since she was using insulin, she could have all the sugar she wanted. Her diabetes was so serious that she could not walk for the last 12 years of her life. Mary Jo Kringas: The second year, I lost another 25 lbs. Mary Jo Kringas: There's a very good book called The 7 Principles of Fat Burning by Eric Berg. Mary Jo Kringas: At about 10 a.m., I will drink coffee with heavy cream and eat a Chocoperfection bar. Mary Jo Kringas: After losing and gaining and then losing again, something happened over the last twelve months where my portions became smaller. Mary Jo Kringas: I've lost 195 pounds. Mary Jo Kringas: Chocoperfection began at the end of 2003, so I guess it will be ten years this coming November. Mary Jo Kringas: I've got two great kids. My daughter works with me at the warehouse every day and my son works with us during his breaks from college. Mary Jo Kringas: Chocoperfection fudge is on the near horizon along with Chocoperfection white chocolate. Mary Jo Kringas: We ship 98% of our orders in the U.S., where we offer free shipping. Surprisingly, we do have some international orders to health clinics and such, but the shipping costs are very high. Amelia Montes: Mary Jo-- I want to thank you so much for sharing your own personal struggles and success in losing and maintaining a healthy weight, a healthy lifestyle. Mary Jo Kringas: Thank you Amelia, for all you do, to support education for a healthy lifestyle. Interview with Mary Jo Kringas: Founder of Chocoperfection
