Is A Stagnant Liver Stalling Your Weight Loss?
Do you ever experience fatigue, bloating, bad breath, constipation, skin issues, headaches, irritability or difficulty losing weight?
If so, you may be experiencing liver congestion.
Why should you care about that?
Well, the liver takes care of over 500 functions in your body. 500! Not only is your liver crucial for your overall health, your liver metabolizes fats, eliminates toxins and gets excess hormones out of your body.
These functions are a MUST for you to be able to let go of unwanted pounds.
Start trimming down and detox your liver by following these 4 steps:
1. Stop giving your liver extra work to do
When you consume alcohol, sugar, processed foods, excess carbs, preservatives and pesticides, your liver must work in overdrive to deal with these anti-nutrients.
This also happens when you are exposed to toxins and chemicals from your food, water, air and the products that you use on your body and to clean your house.
When your liver is busy dealing with these extra tasks, it doesn’t have time to metabolize fats, to efficiently get rid of toxins and to remove excess hormones.
This scenario creates a stagnant and congested liver. Which greatly affects your ability to lose weight.
Help your liver out! Reduce your consumption of sugar, processed foods and excess carbs.
2. Eat foods that help your liver to detox on the daily
Give your liver the nutrients that it needs to properly execute its functions including the detoxification process.
This means eating foods like kale, onions, garlic, turmeric, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, watercress, dandelion and dark leafy greens.
Detoxing is a powerful key for weight loss!
3. Dry body brush before hopping in the shower
You dump about a pound of waste from your skin on a daily basis.
To ensure that your skin isn’t clogged and that you can eliminate those toxins, dry body brush to keep your pores clear of debris.
This is going to assist the liver to get toxins out of your body.
How do you dry body brush? You want to do short quick strokes towards your heart. Start from your feet and work your way up.
This is really important! If your pores are clogged, the toxins are going to be reabsorbed and will be recirculating in your body. That toxic build up will make weight loss harder.
4. Ditch conventional make-up and products and opt for cleaner options
Your skin, your body’s largest organ, absorbs at least 60% of what you put on it. That means that the chemicals and toxins that are found in conventional makeup and products are going directly into your blood stream.
Not only does this add to your toxic load but it also messes with your hormones. This is a disaster for your metabolism and ability to lose weight!
Begin to notice what you put on your body and start to opt for more natural options.
With all the beautiful options out there now, there is no reason you have to compromise your health for beauty.
Alright gorgeous, claim your health and body by implementing these tips now. When you help your body to work as it’s designed to, weight loss happens naturally.
