If you’re like many women with endocrine fallout, it may seem like your body is hanging on to an additional five, ten, or twenty pounds for dear life.
You can be eating practically nothing and working out like crazy, but no matter what you do those excess pounds are going nowhere.
Well, the culprit lies in something that might seem unexpected: Your liver.
Let me explain.
The liver is responsible for removing toxins from the body and it does this by turning fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble toxins so they can be excreted through your large intestine, kidneys, and skin. However, when you have a hormonal problem, your liver’s function is compromised and can’t work as efficiently at removing these toxins.
Therefore, your body clings to those fat-soluble toxins for dear life! It holds them in your fat tissue in order to protect your liver from a toxic load it won’t be able to handle. But then, unlucky for you, those fat tissues become really difficult to shed – unless, of course, you do what’s necessary to help out your liver.
In WomanCode, I go into much more depth on how to specifically support the liver’s function and remove the stubborn fat cells. I even include a 4-day plan to reset your entire system!
Until you get your hands on the full book, here are a few key things to get started with immediately to get your liver into toxin-clearing action!
• Fill up on plenty of veggies from the brassica family: cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and kale.
• Reach for lemons and oranges, adding lemon to your water as much as possible.
• Sneak in caraway and dill deeds into your meals. Grind them and rub onto fish, chicken or other meats before baking, combine them with whole grains, or add them to homemade salad dressings
I can’t wait to share more with you and see the amazing results from your body once you begin to crack the code!
