Love Your Liver!

Love Your Liver!

It’s a whole new look for PraiseWalker!! What do you think?

My beloved daughter Tina designed it (she used this template as her base) and then my wonderful VA from England put it all together (there are still a few kinks to work out, but we’re getting there!) We’ve done it in celebration of a new (and incredibly exciting!) launch I’m doing. Details later…

liverpicI had the immense opportunity to go on an Alaskan Cruise this past summer with my siblings and my parents for their 50th wedding anniversary.  Along with great fellowship, lazy days, stunning scenery, and the fun of hanging out with members of my family I don’t get to see often, we took in some great classes.  One of the classes we took was on weight loss (Sigh – on a cruise ship full of the most amazing food…)  Anyway, I learned something there that totally surprised me.

Your liver is responsible for weight loss.  Who’da thunk it?

I discovered that your liver has two main functions: it detoxes the body and metabolizes fat.  The problem is that with all the C.R.A.P. (Caffeine, Refined Sugar, Additives and Preservatives) we eat, the liver is so exhausted and overwhelmed with its detox job that it has no time for the fat metabolizing.  It then sets up a situation that actually prevents your body from using the fat, and so it just sits there until the liver can get to it (much like the paperwork on my desk…)

Doing a detox is also not always the best answer.  This tends to release too many toxins into your system, and the liver gets totally overloaded trying to keep up (much like the kids adding the piles of paperwork from the kitchen onto my desk…) and then you really get behind.

The trick is to detox slowly and surely, changing your diet to support the liver function and strengthen its ability to work well.

When the liver is functioning well, and you are not stuffing your body with C.R.A.P. you can’t help but lose weight – how cool is that?!

So, how do you know if your liver is the cause of your weight gain?  If you have the “spare tire around the middle” syndrome, it likely is.

What can you do about it?

Tune it tomorrow and I’ll show you, step-by-step.

Coolio.
