Feeling Weighted Down by Those Extra Pounds?
Did you know that many of our foods now contain chemicals that can be stored in your fat cells? Processed foods contain preservatives, pesticides, additives, pollutants, heavy metals, and other environmental chemicals. Your body was not designed to detoxify all these toxins and so it will begin to store them within your fat cells. As these toxins accumulate, the body responds with symptoms of inflammation.
Are you experiencing digestive issues? A feeling of being bloated, acid indigestion, gas, diarrhea, constipation, and cramping can all be signs of insufficient digestive enzymes. If you aren’t digesting your food properly the chances are high that you are also storing toxins in your fat cells.
Are you feeling sluggish and tired? A toxic overload will overburden the body, compromise your immune system and drain your energy.
Are you staying well hydrated? Dehydration can also cause your body to store toxins. Drinking WATER is vital to helping to remove and flush toxins out of the body!
Are you staying active? The lymphatic system is a part of the detoxification process in the body. It only functions properly through physical activity.
Inactivity can result in a stagnant lymphatic system. A stagnant lymph can become a toxic breeding ground for disease.
Are you supporting your liver? The liver is your body’s chemical factory. It helps to remove the toxins that the body is exposed to daily. When the liver becomes overwhelmed with more than it can process, the toxins find their way into the fat cells.
What can you do to help support the body and release these toxins stored in your fat cells?
1.Take digestive enzymes
2.Be physically active
3.Drink at least ten 8oz glasses of pure filtered water per day
4.Cleanse the liver
Once you have taken these steps you will find you have more energy, crave healthier foods and will begin to lose those unwanted pounds.
Why You May Not Be Losing That Unwanted Weight
A Fat Cells main functions is to store energy in the form of lipids and create an insulating layer beneath the skin for the conservation of body heat. This adipose tissue also insulates, cushions, and protects our internal organs.
Fat-soluble toxins and heavy metals increase the size of your fat cells and your insulin producing cells which can cause pancreas damage. This damage can result in obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes.
Our fat tissue acts as an endocrine organ and releases hormones such as leptin that regulate our appetite, satiety, and ability to burn calories.
Some toxins are known as endocrine disruptors. (See my What Is Your Poison Blog) These can affect your entire endocrine system, slowing down your metabolism and wreaking havoc on your hormones.
Since we live in a toxic filled environment, it is crucial that we have a healthy liver to break these toxins down so they can be eliminated from the body before they can cause damage to our endocrine organs!
