If Your Liver Is Happy You Will Be Happy!

Everything you put in your body is going to effect how you feel!  Whether it’s coffee or spinach, its going to effect you.  The main component, I believe, is in how you treat your liver.






This article is not meant to only explain why eating and drinking will cause you to gain lots of weight, but it’s to get you to understand something that very few people recognize…  YOUR LIVER IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ORGANS WHEN IT COMES HOW YOU FEEL, AND YOUR WEIGHT!  Fat metabolism does not happen in the stomach, it’s all about your liver!!  You do not gain weight by drinking alcohol, you gain weight by drinking alcohol and eating!!


1. Drink  warm water with fresh squeezed lemon on empty stomach.

2. Mix Apple Cidar Vinegar with water and drink daily.

3. Eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies.

4. Do not over eat.  Practice Portion control.

5. Drink water all day long!

6. Try not to eat if you are drinking alcohol!  If you do, keep it clean and drink lots of water as well!

7. Keep alcohol intake to minimum. If you drink everyday, drink extra water!

Everything you eat or drink gets digested and absorbed and sent to your liver.  Your liver than recognizes nutrients and sends them where they need to go via the bloodstream, or recognizes poisons or THINGS OUR BODY HAS NO USE FOR, breaks them down, and sends them towards the toilet.  Now this all takes work as I’m sure you can imagine.   When you OVER EAT, DRINK ALCOHOL AND EAT, OR EAT MAN MADE PROCESSED OR PACKAGED FOODS WITH LOTS OF CHEMICALS AND INGREDIENTS YOUR BODY HAS NO USE FOR, your liver gets over worked.  It then takes a good portion of the food and stores it as fat!!

Look at the picture above and notice how big your liver is, and where it is located in your body.  Have you ever felt gas pains in that area??  Ever feel bloated and gross and sharp pains not knowing if its your lungs or your stomach?  It’s your liver and it’s very upset with you!  There is a lot of chemical reactions going on in the liver and you want to make it’s job as simple as possible.

It’s your Kidney’s job to filter out the blood and clean it of toxins.  Whether you breath in pollutants, smoke cigarettes, or eat things that are no good for you, these things get into our blood stream but need to leave ASAP.  Just like our liver, if the kidneys are over worked you are going to feel like crap.  You want nice clean blood flowing through your body so that you have NICE SKIN, Lots of energy, and feel amazing.  If your liver and kidneys are treated well, not only will you feel the best you ever felt, but your body will function at a top performance causing you to burn fat the way you’re supposed to!!  Remember Apple Cider Vinegar is great for your kidneys.  Take it in small doses and feel amazing!

Before I type a long post about how your body actually uses and needs a certain amount of carbs, and also explain how it takes a tremendous amount of EXTRA carbs for them to ever turn into fat.. read this very usefull article ( The Truth about Carbs Turning into Fat) and then return here to Hollywoodfitness.Biz

Ok I hoped that article was helpful!  Here is what I’ve learned through my own experience with working out and eating.  It is possible to build muscle and burn fat at the same time. (Ladies this is for you too)  At first they didn’t think it was possible because to lose weight you have to eat less, but to build muscle you have to eat more!  A mistake I made was I would work out super hard for about an hour and a half, then play basketball for 2 hours and I thought I was going ot get in amazing shape by cutting my carbs and eating less.  Turns out all I did was feel like crap at the end of the day.  I didn’t build the muscles I was trying to and I didn’t lose the weight I thought I would.  I didn’t lose the weight I thought I would because I didn’t build the muscles up properly.

You know why people with the flu lose weight by laying in bed all day?  Part of it is becuase they are consuming less calories, but it is mainly becuase you burn the most calories from fat while you are at rest or doing Low Intensity cardio like WALKING!!  The more muscle tone you have the more fat you burn while at rest.  This is important for both men and women becuase if you want to look and feel your best and keep the fat burning off, you have to tone up your muscles and get plenty of rest.

So what does this have to do with eating carbs you ask??

Your muscles need lots of carbs to refuel the empty tanks after you weight train!! Carbs raise your insulin and insulin gets all the nutrients in your body where they need to be. Now that you know that it is extremely rare and difficult for your body to turn carbs into fat you don’t have to worry so much.  By working out hard and then playing basketball and not eating enough carbs, my muscles did not have enough nutrients to repair and develope properly.  Basketball is high intensity so it burns a lot of carbs.  Since I didn’t have enough carbs, I was running on amino acids that my muscles should have been using to repair!  Since my muscles didn’t grow, I didnt lose much weight at all.

To make a long story short, follow this and you will feel great, look great, and get to eat the foods you love.

WORKOUT DAYS at least 3 days a week- After your workout Consume calories from  60% Carbs 30% Protein and 10% fat

Cardio Days- 50% protein 30% carbs and 20% fat

 Consume most of your calories on workout days after your workout, eat light before hand, and on cardio days.. thats your fat burning days so go lower carb lower calorie.  But High Carb High calorie after your workouts!

Try it out, it works!  You get to eat things you love after your workouts like pasta, pizza, burgers, non fat frozen yogurt.. just keep it low fat with the pizza and burgers!  Dont mix high carb with fat because like I said the insulin gets things to where they are stored and you don’t want to store fat!  I hope you found this helpful!  Email me with any questions and keep checking back with HollywoodFitness.Biz!

Some people get uncomfortable with the topic of Supplementation.  For some reason they equate Supplements to steroids or other risky paths to obtaining Ultimate Results.  Don’t get it confused, I am about Ultimate Health.. Vitamins minerals and Herbs are all natural and are considered Supplements.  We just don’t get everything our body needs from the foods we eat daily, that’s why it is so important to take atleast a multi vitamin.

Lack of energy, anxiety, restlessness and many other bad feelings can be a sign that you are missing a vital vitamin, mineral or even be lacking  multiple nutrients for your body.  Here is a link to point out symptoms of deficiancy in certain nutrients.

Besides supplementing to keep from lacking a nutrient, there are many safe ways to increase your workout performance and get better results faster by loading up on certain supplements.  For an example Vitamin B’s give you loads of energy, while Chromium can aid with a speedier weight loss!

Below is a chart that lists some but not all Vitamins and Minerals and Herbs and their function.  No one is expected to memorize all of this info, but use these charts as a reference!  Natural supplementation can be extremely beneficial when it comes to burning fat, building muscle, feeling great, and reaching your full potential!  I hope this helps!

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns or need advice about anything!  Keep checking back here at Hollywood Fitness for more helpful tips in being the best that you can be!
