In his book "Toxic Fat", Barry Sears explains how the underlying cause of chronic disease comes from the increased production of arachidonic acid (AA) Accumulation of excess body fat is initially your body's attempt to protect you by encapsulating or trapping this toxic fat in your fat cells so it does not attack your organs. Once its spills over into your blood you have Toxic Fat Syndrome. Caused by Cheap refined carbs, Cheap vegetable oil (high omega-6), Decreased consumption of fish oil (omega-3). All forms of inflammation are ultimately controlled by a group of hormones called eicosanoids, which all come from dietary polyunsaturated essential fatty acids DGLA (6) - the good eicosanoid, AA (6) - the bad eicosanoid, and EPA (3) which maintains a balance between the other two and dilutes excess AA from the cell.
In "Fat Flush Plan", Ann Louise Gittleman explains how a fatty congested liver causes fat storage and a sluggish lymphatic system increases cellulite. About 3 pints of blood flow through your liver every minute. Your liver should produce a quart of bile per day, stored in the gall bladder until it is needed in the small intestine to break down fats. Drinking hot water with real lemon and real cranberry juice helps bile production.
Your liver can become congested from Tylenol, birth control pills, polutants, alchohol etc. Gamma-linolenoc acid (GLA) from borage oil burns the visceral brown fat around your organs. Flaxseed oil works even better, and can also reduce fat-storing high-estrogen levels. Protein is nedded for proper liver function. An overgrowth of the yeast candida can cause allergic reactions and fat storage.
Subcutaneous fat is beneath the skin. Visceral fat (organ fat) is inside the abdominal cavity, around your intestines, liver, kidneys, heart, etc. It is more metabolically active than subcutaneous fat, producing more bad changes in cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. Whether in women or in men, the bad health effects are the same.
If your belly is bulging out in a "pot belly" it is likely because your intestines are bloated or because you have plenty of visceral fat - or both, pushing your abs out over your belt. Also because your abdominal muscles have become so weak that your intestines and organs are sliding down.

$25.00 Nutrakey Liver Optima 90 caps A healthy liver does more than you realize. It stores vitamins and nutrients, makes and regulates vital chemicals, helps metabolize important nutrients such as protein, breaks down harmful substances and cleans your blood. The liver chemically changes many foods into vitamins and enzymes. It manufactures bile to digest fats, converts carbohydrates into glucose for brain fuel and glycogen for muscular energy, and breaks down proteins into usable amino acids. Growth hormone from the pituitary gland also passes through the liver and resulting in IGF-1 for muscle and tissue repair.
Hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen, insulin and adrenaline, are metabolized by the liver. Inefficient liver function can lead to hormone imbalances. When liver function is diminished, your metabolism gets sluggish. The liver makes the body’s main antioxidant glutathione. It captures and breaks down harmful substances from our food (i.e., drugs, pollutants, alcohol, fried oils, partially digested proteins, etc.) These substances all take their toll on our liver, as the liver can store these fat-soluble chemicals for years.

A few years ago, at the suggestion of our son-in-law Dr Mark Chirila D.C., my wife and I followed the Standard Process 21-Day Purification Program vegetarian detox diet. There is no dairy (except whey protein), no grains (except brown rice), no starches (except sweet potatoes), no artrificial or processed foods, no nuts, no meat. We did eat (and still do eat) fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, flax oil, whey isolate protein, plenty of greens. We each dropped 15 pounds in a month - and I was still lifting very heavy weight at 173 (340 pound deadlift). When you eliminate all processed food and commercial meat, your body responds favorably.
