This is from the plan I am on regarding the liver:
If you find yourself eating a large amount of processed foods, dairy products, red
meat, preservatives, etc., you are ingesting an enormous amount of toxins. These toxins
overwhelm your two main detoxification organs…that’s right, you guessed it: your liver
and your colon. Since this happens over a long period of time, your liver and colon
become sluggish, slowing your metabolism.
Guess what they also do?
Shuttle excess toxins into fat cells. In most people, this fat is shuttled to the belly, butt,
hips, or thighs. The areas close to those 2 organs.
The liver is like a complicated filter. Its purpose is to breakdown fat and filter out harmful
substances via bile. Bile is the substance that removes waste from the organs and blood
The liver re-circulates bile acids through the system such that the entire bile pool recycles
through the entero-hepatic system six to eight times a day. If this re-circulated fluid is
high in fat and/or toxins, the process leads to excessive weight gain, making it almost
impossible to lose weight permanently.
Now, if the liver does not regulate fat metabolism efficiently, weight gain tends to
occur around the belly area and a protuberant abdomen (also know as a pot belly)
will develop. Another sign of an unhealthy liver can be a roll of fat around the upper
abdomen. This is a sure sign of a clogged up, slowly functioning liver. If the liver filter
is damaged, blocked or clogged up with toxins and excess waste, it can’t remove the
small fat globules that circulate in the blood stream. These extra globules then build up in other organs and in fatty deposits under the skin, which can lead to cellulite in your
butt, thighs, arms, and belly.
Until the liver function is improved, it is almost impossible to lose this abdominal fat.
That’s one of the major reasons we get fatter as we age. Basically, when your liver is
clogged with junk, you become fat, no matter how much “dieting and exercise” you do.
Ever wonder why whenever you would diet and stop, you’d gain the weight right back?
Clean out your liver properly and it will turn right back into the fat burning, metabolism boosting
organ it once was.
So the first two and half weeks was working on purging toxins built up in the body and flushing them out. The rest of the diet is mainly trying to eat as much organic, unprocessed, and free ranged food as possible, with allowances for cheat days. I have tried so
many things with zero results. This is the first time ever, combined with exercise five times a week (which I did before with no results) that I am steadily losing weight, steadily losing inches, and my energy levels have skyrocketed. The food tastes amazing, its easy to do and I'm excited. I'm actually having a ball planning out and cooking meals. Crap. Maybe Im becoming domesticated....
