In his book "Toxic Fat", Barry Sears explains how the underlying cause of chronic disease comes from the incresed production of arachidonic acid (AA) Accumulation of excess body fat is initially your body's attempt to protect you by encapsulating or trapping this toxic fat in your fat cells so it does not attack your organs. Once its spills over into your blood you have Toxic Fat Syndrome. Caused by Cheap refined carbs, Cheap vegetable oil (high omega-6), Decreased consumption of fish oil (omega-3). All forms of inflammation are ultimately controlled by a group of hormones called eicosanoids, which all come from dietary polyunsaturaded essential fatty acids DGLA (6) - the good eicosanoid, AA (6) - the bad eicosanoid, and EPA (3) which maintains a balance between the other two and dilutes excess AA from the cell.
Dr. Mark Chirila D.C. at Dublin Harmony Healthcare, got my wife and I on a clean 3-week vegetarian detox diet with no dairy (except whey protein), no grains (except brown rice), no starches (except sweet potatoes), no artrificial or processed foods, no nuts. We did eat (and still do eat) fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, flax oil, whey isolate protein, plenty of greens. We each dropped 15 pounds in a month - and I was still lifting very heavy weight at 173 (340 pound deadlift).
Mark had us drinking fruit/protein shakes several times a day - 8 oz unfiltered apple juice (Trader Joe's), 8 oz spring water (Dollar Tree), 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen fruit (strawberries and peaches are good), 2 tbsp Flax Oil, 20 gr protein from Standard Process SP Complete protein & greens. We also used these other Standard Process detox products - SP Green Food caps, SP Cleanse caps, Whole Food Fiber powder.
Dr. Chirila, is experienced and informed. If you have a lot of weight to lose or if you have toxic symptoms, Mark can get you analyzed and tuned up with specialized Standard Process whole food supplements and a detox diet to prepare your body for lasting fat loss. If you do not have particular health or toxicity issues, then many of the products that we sell here at Vince's Muscle Shop should work well for you.

595 Calorie Shake

Many simple-minded dieticians, trainers and fat loss programs pretend that all calories are the same. That's an idiot's understanding of calories.
595 calories of junk carbs, processed food, fast food, and soda pop is not the same as 595 calories of healthy nutrients. Don't listen to idiots.
In "Fat Flush Plan", Ann Louise Gittleman explains how a fatty congested liver causes fat storage and a sluggish lymphatic system increases cellulite. About 3 pints of blood flow through your liver every minute. Your liver should produce a quart of bile per day, stored in the gall bladder until it is needed in the small intestine to break down fats. Drinking hot water with real lemon and real cranberry juice helps bile production.
Your liver can become congested from Tylenol, birth control pills, polutants, alchohol etc. Gamma-linolenoc acid (GLA) from borage oil burns the visceral brown fat around your organs. Flaxseed oil works even better, and can also reduce fat-storing high-estrogen levels. Protein is nedded for proper liver function. An overgrowth of the yeast candida can cause allergic reactions and fat storage.
If you don't like the taste of greens in your fruit shake, you might want to try them with tomato or vegetable juice.
Instead of fruit, try fresh celery, tomatoes, peppers, onions, radishes, etc
Subcutaneous fat is beneath the skin. Visceral fat (organ fat) is inside the abdominal cavity, around your intestines,
liver, kidneys, heart, etc. It is more metabolically active than subcutaneous fat, producing more bad changes in cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. Whether in women or in men, the bad health effects are the same.
If your belly is bulging out in a "pot belly" it is likely because your instestines are bloated or because you have plenty of visceral fat - or both, pushing your abs out over your belt. Garden of Life 7-Day Raw Cleanse takes care of the bloating and back-up. After that, the remaining belly bulge is probably from the extra space taken up by visceral fat, and possibly also because your abdominal muscles have become so weak that your intestines and organs are sliding down.
A consistently sensible and healthy diet of real food (no junk carbs, sodas or diet sodas, fast food) will reduce the dangerous visceral fat, and usually before reducing the subcutaneous flab around your waist. Some of the supplements on this page will also help. A variety of ab exercises can firm your tummy and get your posture back.

$16.00 Allmax Liver D-Tox A healthy liver does more than you realize. It stores vitamins and nutrients, makes and regulates vital chemicals, helps metabolize important nutrients such as protein, breaks down harmful substances and cleans your blood. The liver chemically changes many foods into vitamins and enzymes. It manufactures bile to digest fats, converts carbohydrates into glucose for brain fuel and glycogen for muscular energy, and breaks down proteins into usable amino acids. Growth hormone from the pituitary gland also passes through the liver and resulting in IGF-1 for muscle and tissue repair.
Hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen, insulin and adrenaline, are metabolized by the liver. Inefficient liver function can lead to hormone imbalances. When liver function is diminished, your metabolism gets sluggish. The liver makes the body’s main antioxidant glutathione. It captures and breaks down harmful substances from our food (i.e., drugs, pollutants, alcohol, fried oils, partially digested proteins, etc.) These substances all take their toll on our liver, as the liver can store these fat-soluble chemicals for years.
