Are you having trouble losing weight?

 

We all know our livers work extremely hard to protect us from toxins, but did you know, according to Dr. Wendie Trubow, if you’re having trouble losing weight your liver may be to blame?

Our liver does most of our detoxification for our bodies.  And if it’s busy being overworked or overtasked, say too much par-tay-ing over the weekend, our bodies can STORE the toxins in extra body fat.

Guess that’s where The Freshman 15 saying came from, huh?

“Therefore, Dr. Trubow says, “your body will not lose an ounce of fat if that fat is storing toxins your liver has not yet been able to process.  So obviously, the goal is to get the liver functioning better.” {source}

As a matter of fact, according to Medicine.net, our diets have become so poor in this country that OBESITY may soon be the leading cause of liver related diseases surpassing alcohol related liver issues, “Doctors and public health officials project that obesity related liver diseases will become the leading cause of liver failure and liver transplantation in the not too distant future.” {source}

So the answer, I’m sure you all know already, is to eat the right foods to FLUSH these toxins out and keep our livers functioning properly.

Spinach –  Spinach is one of the Top 10 foods in Iron, but it also contains something called glutathione.  Traci D Mitchell of Get Fit Chicago, explains it this way.  “Glutathione handcuffs toxins and drags them out of our body…quite effectively.  Here’s the catch: this handcuffing process works best when foods are eaten raw.” {source} Spinach goes from being a great source of glutathione to not containing any at all when it’s cooked.

Another great reason to add RAW spinach to your smoothies!!
