Weight Management and the Importance of Detox

Random fat sampling by our EPA shows that all Americans store fat-soluble toxins from common chemical exposures in their fat. This is a testament to the amount of pollution we face. Some of these like PCBs, which are proven to elevate in your blood as they are released from fat when you lose weight, can be quite toxic. You must be able to get toxins out of your system fully as you lose weight, otherwise your fat will simply not release them easily and you will struggle to lose weight past a certain point.

I have observed many times that a key reason for rapid weight gain (25 to 50 pounds in a year) is that the person is toxic. This is a self-defense mechanism wherein toxins are being stuffed into fat and gotten out of the circulation so as to protect vital organs from damage. Of course, with our understanding of leptin we come to realize that fat itself is a vital organ and so none of this toxic storage in fat is a good thing.

Detox systems in general, as described in previous sections must all be working well or weight management will be more difficult. Thus, if you know you have trouble in one or another of these areas then be sure to support it as you lose weight. Otherwise you will just feel really toxic, irritable, and grumpy as you struggle to lose weight. You'll feel better when you eat too much, as your body will package up the toxins you aren't getting rid of well and send them back to storage. You can't lose weight that way.

I generally recommend at least extra fiber for any person on a weight management program because it is typical that fiber from other carbohydrate sources is reduced during a weight reduction dieting effort.*

You may do quite well for a length of time on a diet and then run into a toxic layer of fat. Weight management stops and you start feeling irritable, even though you haven't changed what you are doing. This is typically the plateau that is 10-20 pounds down from where you first started your diet and 5-15 pounds or more from your goal weight. This is when extra Pantethine, Chlorella, or Activator Plus can really help out. Find solutions that keep your detoxification systems on track and you can break through these difficult times and reach your goal weight.*

  • Fiber Helper
    Reduced price!

    Fiber Helper™provides a great source of three different soluble fibers that help absorb toxic waste products like a sponge. Many people do not get enough fiber because they do not eat enough fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Adequate fiber is essential for your bowels moving well and the final elimination of toxins - two important topics for a smooth functioning detoxification system.*

    Activator Plus is formulated with sulfur containing amino acids, lipotropic nutrients choline and inositol (that help fatty sludge flow from the liver), and needed B vitamin cofactors and Krebs bionutrients (toxin chelating mineral complexes). It is especially good for boosting liver metabolism, sulfation capacity (part of phase 2 detox), boosting mood, helping thyroid function, and boosting immunity. It is another nutrient, like Pantethine, that is good for weight loss detoxification support.*

  • Chlorella
    Reduced price!

    Many fat-soluble chemicals are stored in your fat during weight gain and must come out again as you lose weight. One class of these chemicals common in most Americans are PCBs (and their related dioxins and furans). Levels of these chemicals are elevated in those losing weight, especially the more weight that is lost. Chlorella has been shown to enhance the clearance of PCBs, making it a useful tool during weight loss to assist your body in its natural detoxification duties.*

  • Pantethine
    Reduced price!

    Pantethine is the co-enzyme form of vitamin B5, which helps make the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase that clears many aldehyde-based chemicals common in today's pollution (formaldehyde, acetaldehyde). Acetaldehyde is the breakdown product of alcohol as well as the toxin produced by Candida. Pantethine is especially good at clearing brain fog. Because pantethine also provides your liver energy (Acetyl CoA), including energy to help metabolize stuck fatty sludge out of your liver, it can help detoxification and liver function in multiple ways (including Phase 2 acetylation) and works well with Daily Balancer™ for any person wanting more comprehensive liver support - especially during weight loss efforts.*
