Unknown Cause of Weight Gain

Millions of Americans are struggling with weight gain and yet what’s really behind this pervasive issue is still unknown in conventional medical and alternative health communities. Almost exclusively, you’ll hear weight gain blamed on slow metabolism, overeating, too many carbohydrates, or a lack of exercise. These are common theories but they’re just that: theories. They aren’t the real reason there’s an epidemic of mystery weight gain across the globe.

Despite the theories and promises of trendy fad diets everywhere you look, it’s the liver that holds the answers to your questions about mystery weight gain. It is not as straightforward as burning more calories than we consume. Many times, people are following a trendy diet and exercising regularly and are still gaining weight. It’s critical to have great compassion for those who are struggling with their weight and to understand what’s really going on so we can help end the shame and judgement many overweight people experience.

The True Cause of Mystery Weight Gain

If you’re gaining weight, it means your liver is sluggish. I have a whole chapter on mystery weight gain and another chapter on sluggish liver in Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease. While two other factors, the thyroid and the adrenals, can often be involved, weight gain is really about what your liver is up against.

When someone can eat all the junk food she or he wants and not gain an ounce, it’s because they have a liver that hasn’t yet hit its fat-storing or poison-storing limitation and therefore functions at a faster pace. That doesn’t mean their liver isn’t overburdened or overstressed. You could be thin and still have a liver illness developing or a liver complication that’s causing or will eventually cause symptoms.

What could be overburdening the liver you might ask? Liver Troublemakers. That’s the name I have given to the hundreds of different toxins, pathogens and pollutants we have in our livers. We have all been exposed to many of them over our lifetimes and even before we were born we inherited them in the womb because they’re passed down from generation to generation in our family lines. Even the healthiest babies are born with livers that aren’t functioning at 100% because of these Liver Troublemakers (unfortunately it’s more like 70% at most.) To discover what these troublemakers are, where they sit in the liver, how they damage the liver, how long it takes for them to leave, and how to support your body and liver to remove them, you can read Liver Rescue.

Ideally, the liver would be strong and uncompromised enough to process fats, toxins, and hormones with ease, neutralizing and getting rid of the toxins altogether while only holding on to high-quality fats and hormones that could be useful to your body later. The reality is that for most people, the liver simply has too much to do and the liver can’t process fat as well as it’s meant to, so fat cells begin to collect in it at a more rapid rate. The liver becomes so congested internally that fat builds around the outside of it, with pre-fatty and then fatty liver developing. Fat cells then begin to accumulate in the intestinal tract, and eventually, the heart and arteries get saturated. Weight starts to cling on around the waist.

This is just one side of mystery weight gain. There’s a great deal more to understand that I cover in Liver Rescue so you have a complete picture of what is happening when you’re gaining unwanted weight.

The Adrenal Connection

One of the reasons that the liver begins to breakdown is an influx of adrenaline in the bloodstream. As life get busier and more stressful, adrenaline is pumped through the body in increasing quantities. No longer is this an issue solely restricted to mid or late adulthood with the many responsibilities and stresses this time of life holds. Students are becoming burnt out earlier on in their college careers and are taking a year off or dropping out of school completely. Even medical students are choosing to forgo residencies due to increasingly high levels of stress.

The reason that stress and adrenaline are so toxic is that they cause the liver to become overburdened. Add to that the high-protein and high-fat diets that are highly popular and normal today and the liver is put into further distress. Whether you’re plant based or love animal foods, high-protein diets (which are also inherently high in fat), are problematic for the liver. No matter what the fat source is—animal protein, soy, nuts, avocados, oil—too much of it burdens the liver. The ketogenic diet is especially problematic. Why? When you eat a high-protein and high-fat diet, your adrenals flood adrenaline into your bloodstream to help your liver disperse fats. Your liver needs this help because bile, whose job it is to breakdown fats, is weakened when your liver is under stress. If your adrenals do not respond with aid, excess fat in the bloodstream can lead to stroke or heart attack. This extra adrenaline, while corrosive and damaging, is your body’s way of protecting your life.

Healing the Liver

In Liver Rescue, I dive into the many troubles plaguing the liver and the solutions available to recover its health and help the Liver Troublemakers leave. The key is consistency; supporting your liver with plenty of fruits, leafy greens, and vegetables—16 ounces of straight celery juice on an empty stomach and my Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie are two options that can help you jumpstart the process. In Liver Rescue, I share exactly how you can support your liver with specific foods and supplements (including suggested dosages.) The book includes information on how to use these foods and supplements for best results. I also offer you my Liver Rescue Morning and Liver Rescue 3.6.9 Cleanse which are life-changing ways to support and detoxify the liver. This isn’t the same liver health information you might read or hear elsewhere. It’s highly advanced and detailed information that can bring back your liver’s health and help you truly recover from dozens of symptoms and conditions.

For those who have already been applying the information I share in Liver Rescue and my other books, rescuing the liver takes time so do not be discouraged. This means that weight gain can continue for a period when you’re doing the right things because the liver was already under such distress that it needs time to adjust and heal before the weight can start to leave.

Additionally, when we have viruses, bacteria, toxic heavy metals like copper, aluminum, or mercury, and other Liver Troublemakers sitting in our livers, recovery time increases. This is due to the fact that, when our livers are inundated with fats and our bile is weakened, viruses and bacteria take advantage of this dip in our immune systems and strengthen (you can read Liver Rescue or any of my books to understand why you might have these pathogens in your liver). If you suffered from acne as a teenager, for instance, and continue to see occasional outbreaks when you are sick or around your cycle, this is because acne is caused by the strep bacteria, which continues to sit in the liver long term producing more symptoms later in life. The same is true for cold sores and HHV. Other viruses, like Epstein-Barr (which has over 60 undiscovered strains), are also rampant, biding time, and straining the liver. All of these factors plus more I discuss in Liver Rescue play a part in the condition of your liver and the symptoms and illnesses you have now or could have in the future.

Our job, then, is to take care of our livers in the way they need on a daily basis. Then you will be healing every day, even when you can’t yet see or feel it. This includes limiting fat intake, whether it’s from plant or animal sources, to give your liver a break so it can work on other important roles aside from processing fats. It also includes eating the healthy critical clean carbohydrates I discuss in detail in Liver Rescue that our livers need to replenish vital glycogen storage and heal and prevent countless conditions. It’s so important to understand how your body works and what it needs from you so you can protect yourself and your loved ones now and in the future. I highly recommend reading Liver Rescue so you can empower yourself with the truth and become an expert on what your body needs to heal and feel its best. I’m with you and I believe in you.
