- If your liver is not metabolising fats correctly you will find it hard to keep a balanced weight. Some people can’t keep the weight off and some can’t keep it on. Both of these will improve with better liver function.
- Certain foods make it harder for the bowel and liver to work well, so it is often what you eat rather than how much you eat that makes the difference. Dairy products, wheat, coffee, tea, and diet fizzy drinks all prevent good bowel and liver function. This explains why people who virtuously eat nothing but low fat yogurt and brown bread are sometimes unable to lose weight.
- If your digestive system is unable to break down and absorb foods well, you will not be receiving the nutrients you need from your food and your body will continue to ask for more. If you eat sensible meals but continually crave more, or if you find it difficult to stop eating at the end of a meal, your digestion might be the problem.

You need meals with good sources of proteins to maintain a normal blood sugar level.
For breakfast, you can have natural nut butter on whole grain toast, eggs, nuts in your granola or yogurt...
Make sure you have a good source of protein for lunch and dinner (ex. legumes, nuts, tofu, meats such as fish and chicken…), and always accompany them with plenty of vegetables including a few green ones.
The fructans (plant sugars such as inulin) improve the way the body handles sugars and starches, allowing us to get longer lasting benefits, from them. Fructans are also good for bowel function so that more wastes are effectively disposed of, instead of hanging around and weighing you down.
