Okay, here's what I understand - correct me if I'm wrong:
- Your liver and kidneys help detox your body.
- Your body stores toxins in fat tissues.
- Mercury, when it enters the body's cells, that includes liver cells and it makes it difficult for the liver to do its job.
Are these true? I've seen occasional references to people losing weight after a detox, or losing weight after fixing up their liver.
I did start to lose some waist weight when I started the Cutler protocol, but it stopped after a while and I hit a plateau there, though I was able to move down a pant size. I haven't made any progress in the past 2 weeks. And my stomach fat is still there, and it NEVER seemed to ever decrease much, not even during the one period in my life where I tried to lose weight by not eating enough (and I certainly lost plenty of weight, as well as sanity, during that time).
I'm wondering why that particular fat is so damn stubborn. My actual diet right now is heavily natural and unprocessed. But it's not helping much. And I go for two walks a day, and bike rides at least once a week (except during cold winter). So all logic says I should be losing weight.
So, does anyone know if detoxing heavy metals helps you lose weight? If it helps the liver, and therefore helps you lose weight, or what? It's so hard to find any info on this, so I'd appreciate any information from people who have experience or would know.
