Can you give a break for the liver? It is a difficult task for everybody who sees food as a way to escape from reality. We face reality when our well-being fluctuates. I wonder if it is human nature to deny everything that helps us and accept things that harm us.
What can harm us?
First, we eat tasty food. We do not care how it is healthy or what benefits it has. It is essential that it is crunchy, delicious, and fulfilling. Who gets up from the table feeling slightly hungry? Please lift your hands.
I talk about the majority of individuals. Obesity in the USA reached 70 percent. You can decide if it is healthy 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 piece of advice from the panel advisors at the Health of Freedom Expo about losing weight. One lecturer said that we need to change lives if we want to drop bad habits. It is easy to say, but it’s hard to do. Not everybody can move to a different city, change jobs, or find a new occupation.
However, we can change our habits. Patterns play a significant role in our lives. It influences the outcomes of our behavior.
Give a break for the liver
The liver is the biggest organ. The liver is the laboratory in the body—the liver stores excess calories as glycogen in the form of glucose. The hormone Glucagon tells the liver when blood sugar is low. The liver releases glycogen into the bloodstream. Sixty percent of energy comes from the organ from stored sugar( glycogen). The rest, 40 percent of energy, comes from fat burning.
Interestingly, at night, 60 percent of energy comes from stored fat. It means that if we sleep enough, we lose weight. It is not fantastic, is it not?
The liver releases the right amount of sugar to the bloodstream from her storage. I find it fascinating because of 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!!!
The more I research the body, the more I feel that we do not know so much about miraculous capabilities.
- Store energy as glycogen in the form of glucose
- Burn FAT
- Release stored sugar as glycogen into the bloodstream
About 60% of energy comes from the liver’s store 2-3 hours after the meal. 40% of the power comes from the burning of fat.
Why do we need to give a break for the liver?
The liver has plenty of glycogen in the form of glucose in its storage. We have plenty of glycogen to get energy between meals when we stop eating.
The liver regulates the released energy. Giving a break for the liver lets us have the crack for ourselves from food and burn calories. It means that we will lose weight! Can you imagine how the organ is essential to us?
When we often eat between big meals, the liver does not have time to release energy for us from her storage. The 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.
Why are 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 beautiful, and not have problems associated with obesity. We can accomplish this naturally, can we? Having meals and nothing between them.
Can we explain it with the human side’s lack of information or laziness? 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 correctly 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 is maintained using calories from liver storage. When the organ 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
In her Completement, Now Wellness program, Dr. Carolyn Dean emphasizes the importance of snacking on your liver. It means that we need to have breaks between meals. We must let the liver do her job. The liver releases plenty of sugar into the bloodstream when we allow this magnificent organ to fulfill its duties.
We do not feel weak or inferior. We burn fat and the rest of the 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 the 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? Perhaps 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. An organ in good shape will let us lose weight and burn fat. Give a break for the liver!
