To get an idea of what your healthy body weight is some people like to use a chart or guideline they can follow, to put things in perspective when starting their journey of healthy weight loss.
Nothing wrong with that as long as you use these numbers, as guidelines only.
We are all unique and all have different body frames and genetics.
Calorie counting and dieting is certainly one way to achieve weight loss.
But how great would it be to maintain your healthy body weight and achieve optimal health without dieting?
So how does it work?
Simple, we just need to understand some key facts on how the human body works.
Let’s start by focusing on the liver, metabolic rate and the thyroid gland.
Improving liver function starts the ball rolling. When you start to decrease the load of toxins that your liver has to deal with, this organ is quick to bounce back with strength.
This means cutting as much junk food and chemicals out of your diet and replacing it with
healthy food choices.
You see improved liver function means improved metabolic rate (metabolism) which is regulated by the hormones from the thyroid gland.
The secret to improving the thyroid’s function is to first improve liver function.
Once this has been accomplished our bodies will know precisely how much we should weigh and how to get there, without crazy fad diets or calorie counting.
So there is no need to convince yourself that you have to look like an anorexic model that is on a cover of a magazine.
We are all different and all have different body frames. But
whatever your body shape is, the goal is to be at our healthiest weight,
feel energized and stay healthy.
Poor liver function can equal sluggish thyroid function which can prevent weight loss.
There are millions of people who live with a sluggish thyroid (or sluggish thyroid syndrome) and don’t even know it.
Some of the symptoms can include the following:
Weight gain, fatigue, constipation, depression, obesity, mood swings, and digestive problems are only a few out of the countless symptoms that exist.
Doing a liver cleanse is a great way to unburden the liver. But if you have just started your healthy new lifestyle you should ease into any liver or cleansing diets. You don’t want to shock your body.
Start off with simple changes such as choosing healthy foods. You may also want to see if food combining may be something you would be interested in or perhaps incorporating juicing into your daily routine may be the perfect solution to help with weight loss while boosting energy levels and metabolism.
Knowing which foods to reach for can be a powerful tool to help us achieve our ideal weight.
That is why we love sharing all our family homemade soup recipes with you that are made with healthy foods.
It is no coincidence that my whole family has always reached out for soup when it came to losing weight.
It has always been a simple solution that helps with maintaining your healthy body weight.
Try to eat and drink more healthy foods.
If you want to take it to the next level you can even incorporate a liver detox or a
detox your body.
When you have achieved this type of healthy lifestyle, you will feel so good you won’t want your old eating habits back.
Not only that, but regardless what genetic frame you have, you will lose weight and feel great.
