September 2020 - #082 - How Improved Liver Function Creates Weight Loss
It’s so good to see you back and I hope everyone is doing well.
Today we want to share with you one important fact and that is;
Improving liver function is a SURE-FIRE way to lose weight, no doubt about it.
So, first we need to understand how the liver works and why its function is so strongly connected to weight loss.
The liver is your body’s hardest working organ and has many functions to ensure your survival.
It filters, eliminates and neutralizes everything that you put in your body, and I mean EVERYTHING from what we eat, drink, inhale or absorb through our skin.
This organ is also responsible for the secretion of bile, which is a fluid that is stored in the gallbladder and is released as it is needed for digestion.
Bile is very important in this equation, because proper bile production is not only necessary for good digestion but bile also helps our bodies to break down and digest fat.
That fact right there is extremely important if you want to lose weight.
Bile also stimulates the digestive system, which helps prevent constipation and has other functions too, like the absorption of calcium and certain vitamins.
The liver dumps toxins into the bile so they can be eliminated from the body.
If your liver becomes overloaded then so does the amount of toxins that the liver dumps in the bile.
Our bile becomes so clogged that it just can’t function properly anymore because it gets so thick from being mucked up that it becomes very inefficient in breaking down our fat which leads to weight gain.
Another liver task is to regulate the body’s hormones and metabolic rate which are also linked to weight loss.
You see metabolic rate (metabolism) is regulated by the hormones from the thyroid gland. If our livers are sluggish and overloaded the chances are your metabolism will also be sluggish.
When your metabolism is running at peak performance your body knows exactly what weight it should be and how to get there.
If your liver is sluggish and overwhelmed, achieving you healthy body weight will become extremely difficult.
Keeping this organ healthy is also the best way to avoid fatty liver disease which is becoming more common due to the rise in obesity rates.

There are many juicing recipes you can choose from.
Want to take it to the next level?
Enjoy a juice fast or a raw food fast to help detoxify the body.
To keep liver function at its optimum, avoid the following:
An improper diet:
That would be a diet that is low in protein and high in carbohydrates and fats.
Avoid fried foods, saturated fats, junk foods, processed foods, refined white flour products and white sugar products.
These types of food have been depleted of natural vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
Overeating is probably the most common cause of liver malfunction. It creates excess work for the liver, resulting in liver fatigue.
In addition, the liver must detoxify all of the various chemicals present in our food supply today. When the liver is overworked, it may not detoxify harmful substances properly.
Avoid Stimulants, they are not nutrients
Stimulants such as coffee, chocolate, white sugar, alcohol, artificial sweeteners and tobacco.
They do stimulate us but provide no benefits, they just overwhelm the liver.
Alcohol is particularly toxic to the liver when consumed in excessive amounts. The liver begins to lose its functioning capacity.
By improving liver function you will achieve more than just weight loss, you will start to cleanse your body, mind and spirit.
Have a great month and take care of yourselves and each other.
