Can you give a break for the liver? It is a difficult task for everybody who sees food as the way to escape from reality. We face reality when our wellbeing fluctuates. I wonder if it is human nature to deny everything that helps us and accept things which harm us.
What Can Harm Us?
First, we eat tasty food. We do not care how it is healthy or what kind of benefits it has. It is most important that it is crunchy, tasty and fulfilling. Who gets up from the table feeling slightly hungry? Please, lift your hands.
I talk about the majority of individuals. The obesity in the USA reached 70 percent. You can decide if it is normal or not.
From my perspective, it is terrible when I can not get into my favorite dress or skirt. Why? I lead a sedentary life and do not exercise enough to burn calories after the piece of chocolate.
I remember one advice from the panel advisors at the Health of Freedom Expo about losing weight. One lecturer told that if we want to lose bad habits we need change lives. It is easy to say, but it ‘s hard to do. Not everybody can move to the different city, change jobs or find a new occupation.
However, we can change our habits. Patterns play the big role in our lives. It influences outcomes of our behavior.
Give a Break for the Liver
The liver is s biggest organ. The liver is the laboratory in the body. Liver stores excess of calories as glycogen in the form glucose. The hormone Glucagon tells the liver when blood sugar is low. The liver releases glycogen to the bloodstream. The 60 percent of energy comes from the liver from stored sugar( glycogen). The rest 40 percent of energy comes from fat burning.
What is interesting that at night, the 60 percent of energy comes from the stored fat. It means that if we sleep enough, we lose weight. It is not wonderful, is not?
The liver releases the right amount of sugar to the bloodstream from her storage. I find it fascinating because how this organ knows what to do?
We are walking miracles.
When we finish digesting food, the liver begins to maintain blood sugar using calories stored away and burning fat. Did you hear? Burning fat!!!
More I research about the body; more I feel that we do not know so much about miraculous capabilities.
- Store an energy as glycogen in the form of glucose
- Burn FAT
- Release stored sugar as glycogen to bloodstream
About 60% of energy comes from liver’s store after 2-3 hours after the meal. The 40% of energy comes from the burning of fat.
Why Do We Need to Give a Break For The Liver?
The liver has in her storage plenty of glycogen in the form of glucose. When we stop eating, we have plenty of glycogen to get energy between meals.
The liver regulates the released energy. Giving a break for the liver lets us have the break for ourselves from food and burn calories. It means that we will lose weight! Can you imagine how the liver is important to us?
When we often eat between big meals, the liver does not have time to release energy for us from her storage. Liver consistently gets new food. It was coming variously as snacks, chips or chocolate.
When the liver does not have the break, it becomes overflooded with sugar. This sugar has storage limits in the liver. The liver can not keep up with significant amounts of sugar and turns it into fat.
Any questions why so many people obese?
I wonder why fitness instructors, nutritionists, and health practitioners do not scream about on every corner. Everybody wants to fit in jeans, look nice and do not have problems associated with obesity. We can accomplish naturally, can we? Having meals and nothing between them.
Can we explain it with the lack of information or laziness from human side? I think that plenty of factors are here.
People do not eat wholesome foods. They feel that they lack nutrients. According to Dr. Carolyn Dean M.D., N.D., the liver does not work properly when between meals we feel depressed and want snacks.
The liver must deliver glycogen from her storage between meals as energy for us. The blood sugar maintained using calories from liver storage. When liver works efficiently, it gives us the power to feel well between meals. In this way, we do not become fat. Fat is burning between meals.
Snack on your Liver
Dr. Carolyn Dean in her Completement, Now Wellness program, emphasizes the importance of snacking on your liver. It means that we need have breaks between meals. We must let liver do her job. The liver releases plenty of sugar into the bloodstream when we let this magnificent organ to fulfill duties
We do not feel weak or inferior. We burn fat and rest of calories between meals. If we feel hungry, water helps immensely. Plain filtered or distilled water with ReMag, the liquid magnesium, will keep us in shape until next meal.
Old habits do not disappear fast. We must analyze our relationship with food. Why do we snack between meals? Maybe our main meals are without nutrients? Maybe we are scared or angry and want instant pleasure to mask bad feelings?
The liver is the perfect helper to have plenty of energy between meals. The liver in good shape will let us lose weight and burn fat. Give a break for the liver!
