There may be a Fat loss secret that you have not considered. Most people blame their inability to lose weight on either poor food choices or lack of exercises. However, when one sincerely tries to lose weight by doing what seems to be all the right things yet still fails; there may be another culprit.
Enter the function of your liver. Are you surprised that this may have anything to do with your weight loss efforts? Let us take a look at just what your liver does for you. First of all it removes toxins from your blood such as medicinal and nutritional byproducts such as ammonia. The bile that enables your body to break down fats and absorb fat and water soluble nutrients comes from the liver.
Your liver has a part in regulating glucose or blood sugar, insulin, and hormones like estrogen and testosterone. Your liver is also responsible for the production and removal of cholesterol. When you take cholesterol medicine it is filtered through the liver. Also Tylenol products and alcohol are filtered through the liver and can be very harmful to it.
The fact is that just about everything that you consume must be filtered by your liver. Sometimes when it is overworked you can have a buildup of toxins that it has difficulty removing. This causes inflammation that is associated with a whole host of problems including obesity. When your liver is stressed it can cause a buildup of fat right around your middle.
Other problems that a stressed out liver can cause are feelings of tiredness, brain fog, skin rashes, insomnia, indigestion including bloating and/or constipation, food cravings and more.
So what on earth is a person to do if they think this may be the cause? First of all talk with your doctor and see if he thinks that a liver function test is appropriate. There are other tests that he also might want to do such as a CAT scan or an MRI. Those tests would allow your physician to get a good look at your internal organs.
Your doctor will let you know if any medications are needed to be added or removed. In the meantime it is a good idea to simply live a life that takes good care of all your body parts. Try to remove all excesses from your life. If you drink, then make it minimal so as not to overwork your liver. If you smoke then stop. Eat for good health and don't forget to get in daily exercise as well.
Unfortunately some people will not take care of themselves until so much damage has been done that their health will never be the same. Don't let that be you. Don't let an overuse of drugs or alcohol cut your life short.
If an overstressed liver is making it difficult for you to lose weight then it is definitely time to take action. You can make your life better with clean eating, clean living, and moderation in all things. As you take better care of your health you should find that it also becomes easier for you to lose that excess weight too.
When do you start? There is no better time than right now. Every day that you delay may make it that much more difficult. Start now.
