As much as we look forward to spring, I haven’t met a woman yet whose next thought isn’t “OH CRAP! IT’S ALMOST SWIMSUIT SEASON!” I go through the same pattern every year, and don’t expect it will change anytime soon. Too much cold dreary winter, to much comfort food (fat keeps you warm, right?) and too little exercise bring us to the same place every year. Ok let’s not panic, we still have a much needed ninety days before “the day” when we shed our clothing and don our ideally slimmer summer look!
For me, this year my focus will be on two important things, feeding and nourishing my Liver, and lowering my fat intake. Rather than trying to starve myself into a new swimsuit, I’m going to concentrate on doing some healthy things for the hardest working organ in my body! For any of you that I have talked to about diet and nutrition you know that I am a firm believer in Anthony Williams book “Liver Rescue”. It really changed the way I eat and the way I look at diet and nutrition. For those who haven’t read it, I would encourage you to do so! There is a wealth of information and many “aha” moments. For example, did you know that fat interferes with sugar storage. And the liver needs to store sugar to perform the plethora of duties it has to do on a daily basis. Maybe you thought the liver was just a storage tank… Again, the book is worth the read!
So, in an effort to help us all get through the next ninety, shed a few pounds and contribute to the health of our livers I will be posting some Food Diaries and Recipes (check them out in our nutrition corner!) as well as exercise ideas that you are welcome to try, and share with your group. I would love to hear what is working for you (or not working) and If you feel like you need a bit more individual fine tuning you can book a nutrition consult by going to https://www.harper-chiropractic.com/ or follow this link directly to book an appointment, download and complete a food diary prior to our visit! https://harper.yondo.com/education/nutrition-initial-consult-overview-with-shirley/39740
Cheers to a Happy Summer and a Healthy Liver!
