In 2015, studies found that over 64% of American adults were overweight with over 28% being considered obese.  While excessive food intake is the primary culprit for weight gain, experts argue that organ deficiency, specifically our liver, also plays a major role in our ability to regulate our weight.  Among the most common issues faced by those who are overweight is the development of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD).


A cooperative study conducted by various health experts found that intermittent fasting may help mitigate symptoms of NAFLD and coupled with a healthy dietary program such as a smoothie regimen, your chances of success will likely increase.  Your liver is among the most important organs in your body considering it filters out and breaks down harmful substances. An unhealthy liver contributes to weight gain for various reasons such as an inability to filter dangerous toxins, which can leave you feeling sluggish.

Ensuring that your liver is healthy will help mitigate the issues associated with a fatty liver.

The same study suggested that intermittent fasting demonstrated positive outcomes in regard to helping those who struggle with NAFLD.  By implementing a fasting regimen coupled with a healthy diet and a liver cleanse supplement such as LivPure, you can make a lot of progress in your weight loss journey.
