After coming back from holidays 3kg heavier than my NORMAL 92kg (206lbs) (which is over 15kgs more than my recommended body weight to my height of 5'8") I put myself onto Dr Cabot's Liver-Cleansing Diet on a days notice. Why did I choose the LCD? I didn't have to sign up on anything or go to groups or meetings etc. I had a list of what I could eat and what I couldn't eat and I stuck to it like a zealot. In the course of the eight weeks I lost 13kg's (29lbs) getting myself down from 95kgs to 82kgs (183lbs)!

This proved to me that not only was I well and truly overweight but that my eating habits were absolutely shocking and needed a change. AND I did not starve myself either. I did try to modify the amount of food I ate because not only was the problem what I was eating, but how much, but I never starved myself or went hungry. If I felt like something to eat out of normal meals I would just blend up a banana & soya milk smoothie with frozen bananas and a dollop of natural honey (try it!).

I have two recommendations for people doing this diet.

1: Stick to it religiously, if you allow yourself butter here and there or some greasy chips at a party you will find it too easy to stray from the diet. Dr Cabot says in the book you are allowed the odd indiscretion, but I found for me personally it had to be all or nothing.

2: If you have a partner (wife/husband/etc) then they really should do it as well because the temptation is great to have the food they get to eat. I know this now because I am on the diet for a second time to try and get my weight to around 77kg (172lbs) but my wife is not joining me AS MUCH as the first time round because she doesn't need too (55kg). Seeing that bottle of coke when you are reaching for that soy milk, or that block of cheese sitting next to that block of tofu makes for some mighty effort in willpower but I am sticking to my guns!

About Dr. Sandra Cabot

Did you know that a healthy liver will reduce the time bomb of ageing, increase your life span and keep your weight under control?
The liver is the hardest working organ in your body and yet you probably never give it a second thought, am I right? The liver is the gateway to the body and takes the load off our precious immune system. Excess weight, poor health and digestive disorders are often due to Liver dysfunction.

This site has been designed by Dr. Sandra Cabot MD, author of the internationally best selling "Liver Cleansing Diet" book. The Liver Cleansing Diet book became so famous, it made Dr. Cabot a household name in everyone's kitchen and brought liver consciousness to hundreds of thousands of people in a short space of time. People from all walks of life and in many different states of health embraced this new and simple way of eating with passion.

Perhaps the success of Dr. Cabot's Liver therapies relates to the fact that when one improves the liver function through nutritional medicine it is possible to achieve many health benefits, especially weight control and internal cleansing of the body. Dr. Cabot's theories have caused people to really start thinking laterally and people who have struggled for years with chronic health problems or excessive weight have found that the liver is the missing part in the jigsaw puzzle of good health.

About Dr. Sandra Cabot
Dr. Cabot graduated in medicine from the University of Adelaide South Australia in 1975. As part of her extracurricular medical studies she studied herbal medicine, naturopathy, acupuncture and homeopathy. Dr. Cabot began her medical career in 1980 as an Obstetrician and practiced in Sydney, Australia. In 1984 she spent considerable time working at the Leyman Missionary Hospital in the Himalayan foothills of India. Here she studied tropical medicine and infectious diseases. She also tended to indigenous women with obstetric emergencies. This was helped by her study of the Hindu language.

She returned to Australia in the late 1986 to resume her practice and become an author. Her first book titled "Women’s Health", was an authoritative health guide for women who were seeking more natural alternatives. Subsequently she authored several more best selling books, "Menopause-HRT and It’s Natural Alternatives", "Don’t Let Hormones Ruin Your Life", "The Body Shaping Diet" and the "Handbag Health Guide". Her book called “Boost Your Energy” covers New Age Hormone Replacement Therapy using natural hormone creams and lozenges (troches) and is a must for women who are interested in menopause and keeping young.

She was always keen to help people with chronic, difficult and mysterious health problems. Patients flocked from far away places and she was often called “the last resort doctor.” These challenges led her into the groundbreaking discovery that the liver is the key to helping many chronically ill patients. In the early 1990’s she began developing nutritional strategies aimed at specifically improving liver function.

Dr. Cabot’s research and books on the liver were the first to explain the critical role that liver function plays in fat metabolism and immune function. Her book “The Liver Cleansing Diet”, sold 1.5 million copies worldwide and has made her a household name in Australia, New Zealand and Cyberspace. It won the Australian People’s Choice Award in 1997. The Liver Cleansing Diet enabled many people to lose weight successfully and her latest "The Healthy Liver and Bowel Book", gives people vital information on how to keep the liver healthy in this chemically toxic age.

Dr. Cabot is sometimes known as “The Flying doctor” because she is a pilot and flies herself to seminars throughout Australia for her Women’s Health Network. She has also conducted seminars in other countries, including the U.S.A, where she has lectured for the American Liver Foundation and the Annual Conference of the “Primary Biliary Cirrhosis Foundation”

She has made hundreds of appearances on Australian TV and radio and has been interviewed three times on U.S. national television; twice on Pat Robertson’s 700 Club and on The Trinity Broadcasting Network.
