Often people struggle to lose weight or to keep weight off.  What they don’t realize is that maybe their liver isn’t functioning properly, they have an unhealthy liver.  The liver is one of the most important organs in our body and we need to treat it as such.

Simple signs you have an unhealthy liver

  • Circles under the eyes
  • Bad breath
  • Bloating
  • A foggy Brain

But don’t worry these can all be rectified with a healthy diet.

It’s important to listen to your body.

If you aren’t hungry, don’t eat. On the other hand, don’t put up with hunger pains if it’s not “your regular meal time”. Many people consume their meals by the clock. Eg: breakfast at 7 am, Lunch at 12 noon, Dinner at 6 pm. By eating meals at a regulated time, it put more pressure on your liver. Eat when you are hungry, but be mindful to eat a healthy diet.

Drink at least eight to ten glasses a day.

this will help cleanse the liver and kidneys and aid weight loss. One of the most important things and we have touched on this before, avoid eating large amounts of sugar, especially refined sugar, as the liver will convert this into fat.

If you really think you need to eat something sweet, have a piece of fruit, but be sure to include that as one of your 3 pieces of fruit for your daily intake.

Try not to obsess about counting calories.

For many the mental energy of having to count calories is overwhelming and that is the cause of many to fail at dieting. Sensible sized portions are the key.

Don’t be constantly weighing yourself.

Weight loss will vary between different people. If you are being kind to your liver and eating sensibly, then weight loss will occur.

As we age, our tastes change and sometimes we find that certain foods no longer agree with us. If that is the case, eliminate them from your diet. Often wheat causes problems, however there are alternatives available on the market that are just as palatable. Don’t overdose on coffee as that is toxic to the liver. An alternative is to drink green tea.

Avoid consuming food that have been reheated a few times. Bacteria will breed in stored food, particularly meat, thus causing infections. If you are visiting an overseas country, try to avoid eating salads as they may be washed in local water that is not clean and filtered.

 Don’t eat when you are stressed or anxious Apart from causing you to eat the wrong foods, it may lead to abdominal bloating and poor digestion.

Avoid excessive saturated fats or damaged fats

As these will harm your liver. Many people think that by following a completely fat free diet, it will speed up their weight loss. Unfortunately that will slow your metabolism down and lead to easy weight gain. It is important to consume essential fatty acids for two reasons. They are essential in the diet as your body cannot manufacture them and they are essential for health.

  • Omega 6: These unsaturated fats are beneficial and may be found in sunflower seed, pumpkin seed, walnuts and sunflower seed to name a few sources.
  • Omega 3: Many people do not obtain enough in their diet. You can find Omega 3 in cold water fish, sardines, tuna, mackerel and salmon. Other beneficial fatty acids can be obtained from avocados, fresh unshelled peanuts, almonds, macadamia nuts, cashew and pecan nuts and olive oil.

 All these Omega fats are important for a healthy body.  If you want to know more about how to save your unhealthy liver and repair it, Check this book out from Amazon – Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease
