Hypothyroid and Weight Loss

Hypothyroid and Weight Loss

Make it Watercress Juice!

An ancient green, watercress is said to have been a staple in the diet of Roman soldiers, which they used for energy and brain power. It is a part of the cruciferous vegetable family along with kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts.

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, used watercress to treat his patients. It was widely available until the 19th century and watercress sandwiches were a staple of the working class in England.

Detox Toxic Fat & Lose Weight

Detox Toxic Fat & Lose Weight

Detox Toxic Fat & Lose Weight

When you remove toxins, you will lose weight and feel better. Fat soluble toxins are more difficult to remove than water-soluble toxins that can be flushed from the body easily. Fat-soluble toxins include heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives, food additives, pollutants, plastics and other environmental chemicals. They must become water-soluble for the body to eliminate them completely. These toxins get stored mostly in the fat cells and the liver. With toxins stored in the fat cells, it is difficult to lose weight. The body will hold onto the fat as much as possible to protect your delicate tissues and organs. If the pathways of elimination such as the intestinal tract or the lymphatic system are not functioning optimally, this makes it even harder to get the toxins out of the body. If your diet is deficient in fiber, up to 94% of the bile – along with its toxic baggage – gets reabsorbed back to the liver to be recycled.

Control Blood Sugar; Lose Weight

Control Blood Sugar; Lose Weight

Control Blood Sugar; Lose Weight

Can you really control blood sugar and cure diabetes? What would you consider a cure? Normal blood sugar? No more need to take medication? That’s definitely possible. Able to go back to your old lifestyle and way of eating? That’s not possible.

Here’s Fr. Gregory’s Story

Our dear friend Fr. Gregory was diagnosed with diabetes in November 2015. He said,” I really didn’t like taking medication because of the side effects.  My goal was to heal my body with good nutrition so I wouldn’t need medication any longer.  To achieve my goal, I stopped consuming so many dairy products, which are high in sugar (lactose). I had been drinking a lot of milk. Instead, I began drinking freshly made vegetable juices. I lowered my sugar and other carbohydrate intake as well.  In 30 days, I lost 20 pounds.  I cut my medication in half because my blood sugar fell too low.  I was very encouraged by how quickly my body responded to my dietary changes.”  Now, after three months, Fr. Gregory’s AIC range has gone from 9.5 to 5.5 (completely normal).  He no longer needs ANY medication. His doctor said he’d never seen anything like it.

Stanford Medicine Study Links Sugar with Diabetes

Sugar may have a direct link to diabetes. That’s the result of a large epidemiological study in 2013 by Stanford Medicine. “Researchers examined data on sugar availability and diabetes rates from 175 countries over the past decade. They found that increased sugar in a population’s food supply was linked to higher diabetes rates, independent of obesity rates.

‘It was quite a surprise,’ said Sanjay Basu, MD, PhD, an assistant professor of medicine at the Stanford Prevention Research CenteSugar-Knockoutr. ‘We’re not diminishing the importance of obesity, but these data suggest that there are additional factors that contribute to diabetes risk besides obesity and total calorie intake, and that sugar appears to play a prominent role.’”1

Whether you have blood sugar metabolism challenges or not, eliminating sugar can make a huge difference when it comes to your health and losing weight. Maybe it’s time to get that sweet tooth under control. Check out my new book The Juice Lady’s Sugar Knockout.

How Toxins Make Us Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead

How Toxins Make Us Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead

In 2008 scientists discovered a surprising and disturbing fact: environmental toxins make you fat and cause diabetes(1). Inside your body, chemicals disturb your ability to balance blood sugar and metabolize cholesterol. Over time, the disruptions can lead to insulin resistance. Why hasn’t this been headline news? Most probably because there are no drugs to treat it. In fact, the drugs would only add to the toxicity. In our efforts to conquer the two biggest epidemics of our time—diabetes and obesity—we must turn our attention to environmental toxins that we put in and on our bodies.

It is imperative that you optimize your body’s ability to detox. If your body’s detoxification tools aren’t up to speed, waste will build up in your organs and tissues. Overtime, the damage is similar to what happens when trash collectors go on strike. The waste piles high, making the area smell and creating a breeding ground for illness. Do you remember the New York City Christmas Trash Collectors Strike of 1981? Trash mounded up in the streets, which attracted rats in droves and led to disease. Had it not been so cold, they would have had a major health crisis. When the trash was finally hauled away, with nothing left to feed on, the rats left.

We live in an environment steeped in chemicals that our bodies were not designed to process. For a disturbing look at the chemicals that invade our bodies, check out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals.  In the 2008 report, scientists at the CDC found that nearly every person they tested was packing around a host of nasty chemicals that included flame retardants stored in fatty tissue and Bisphenol A (2), a hormone-like substance found in plastics.  Even babies were contaminated. The average newborn has 287 chemicals in her umbilical cord blood, 217 of which are neurotoxic (poisonous to nerves or nerve cells) (3).(4)

Need a 30-Day Weight Loss – Detox?

30-Day Detox – Weight Loss Challenge

 

The body’s ability to detox toxins is a significant factor in your ability to lose weight and maintain a healthy goal weight. When toxins backup and we experience toxic overload, we experience expanding fat cells that are stuffed with toxins and fat. This equates to an expanding waistline. This is a survival step to get the toxic load out of your bloodstream and away from key organs. However, this causes weight gain and interferes with weight loss because the body does not easily give up toxic fat it has stored.

Our polluted world is a true test of genetic survival of the fittest. The number of toxic chemicals in our world threatens the reproductive ability of the human race and is a large part of the cancer epidemic. Stored chemicals contribute to weight gain in various ways, including disruption of the hormone signaling system that regulates your metabolism and accumulation of toxins in your white adipose tissue.

Toxic lipopolysaccharides (LPS) is the result of bacterial imbalance within the digestive tract. It stimulates the formation of new fat cells and promotes weight gain. LPS causes leptin resistance and thyroid malfunction. It is an example of internally generated toxins along with waste like inflammatory debris and lactic acid. Environmental toxins affect everyone to some degree and can cause metabolic malfunctions of LPS, as well as increase the risk for cancer. Many environmental toxins are fat soluble, which means they readily accumulate in white adipose tissue. To lose weight, It is absolutely vital that you detox your body in a health way to lose weight.

I’ll help you detox and lose weight with my 30-Day Detox Weight Loss Challenge.

8 Reasons to Ditch Sugar

8  Reasons to Ditch Sugar

8  Reasons to Ditch Sugar

Here are a few TOP TIPS to help you shed those pounds and feel great:

  1. Sugar is a major contributor to inflammation. Inflammation is a top cause of heart disease and nearly all other diseases. You can read more about inflammation in my book The Juice Ladys Anti-Inflammation Diet.
  2. Sugar makes you fat.  It is loaded with calories that are stored in fat cells.
  3. Sugar will raise your cholesterol. For years we were told it was fat that raised our cholesterol, but sugar is worse.
  4. Sugar makes you nervous. There is a clear link between excess sugar and disorders like anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia, because of high levels of insulin and adrenalin that get released with sugar consumption
  5. Sugar causes diabetes, kidney and heart problems.  Excess sugar can damage the pancreas’s ability to function properly.
  6. Sugar destroys your teeth.  Sugar increases the bacteria in your mouth that erodes enamel. The biggest problem with many popular toothpastes is that they contain sugar. They are not required to put the sugar on the label.
  7. Sugar suppresses the immune system.  Sugar beats out vitamin C in your immune cells and weakens them.
  8. Sugar causes wrinkles. A high-sugar diet damages collagen, the layer just below the skin that gives you that youthful appearance.
