The liver’s role in fat metabolism makes this organ’s health vital to achieving your weight loss goals.
A congested liver prevents abdominal weight loss. Statistics prove that Americans are getting heavier. Not surprisingly, the associated health problems with being overweight are becoming more common. There is little doubt that adopting a healthy diet and exercising regularly form the cornerstone of successful weight loss programs.
However, the liver’s role in our weight is rarely acknowledged.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 70 percent of American adults are overweight. Whether you want to look good in a bathing suit for summer, are aiming to prevent diabetes, or have been told by a doctor that you must lose weight, most of us are familiar with the challenge of losing weight. For those who seem to be doing all the right things (eating right and exercising regularly) yet are unable to shed excessive weight, a congested liver could be the culprit.
