Fasting and taking care of the liver

Fasting is usually the quickest, easiest and cheapest way to improve health – just that businesses have a lot of difficulty making money by reminding people to fast more!

As discussed, unless we do a bit of fasting the liver is always overworked turning excess sugars into fats, whereas it has a lot of other jobs it needs to be doing in-between meals.

This advert was published at 1am on 2nd Oct. The video is just 4mins 14seconds and worth listening to… I tend to listen while cooking/washing up as there is not much to see on these videos. http://products.mercola.com/liver-supplement/

Dr Mercola has been saying for years that almost everyone is having too much fructose and most of the fructose consumed has to be converted to fat. Excess fructose is probably the number one problem in the USA diet as its production is subsidized so USA food companies add it to everything they possibly can. It is easier to avoid added fructose in the UK, although the best way to be sure is to avoid all processed foods.

I do NOT recommend buying the advertised supplement. Yes, there are chemicals that are amazingly good at repairing the liver, but these are available from food. Near enough anything that is naturally green is good for the liver. Nature made things this way… mammals tend to eat green things (even lions eat antelope that have been eating mainly grass) so the liver is designed to make good use of chemicals present in green things. People who do not eat greens are generally sick and getting sicker.

As for me, I have a meeting in Nottingham today with free lunch. Last time though the lunch was sliced bread sandwiches, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, crisps, squash with sweeteners… I need to think about taking my own lunch… although, I note that they have changed the venue… maybe I need a packed lunch I can bring home if they manage to bring out something more natural this time.

Best wishes
