Do You Have Toxic Belly Fat

author avatar Dr. Eric Berg 05/12/2011

We live on a very toxic planet with over 80,000 synthetic chemicals registered for use in the U.S. These toxins lock in on our fat tissues, glands, liver and other organs. They are effectively known as “endocrine disruptors” because they mimic and destroy our own hormones.

The main oil filter in the body is the liver. Being 3 ½ pounds, it can clean and purify pesticides, heavy metals, viruses, bacteria and the list goes on and on. However, with the overload of toxicity, it becomes overwhelmed and these toxins start backing up through the skin, eyes, and other organs.

As our liver becomes toxic, it begins to leak fluid in the abdomen. It amazes me Man and liver and Stomachhow many people, especially men, have this condition and don’t have a clue. You would think it would be on the front page of every magazine and newspaper. This is called ‘ascites’, which is Latin for fluid. These men are not really fat, they are filled with fluid and all the sit-ups in the world will not budge this stomach.

Fortunately, there are specific foods that naturally detoxify and dismantle toxins from the body. These are called “cruciferous”. They are the bitter vegetables and those that people rarely eat, especially the guy wearing a Speedo on the beach with the pot-belly.

Consuming cruciferous and/or concentrate cruciferous food is a natural way to slowly detoxify the body without side-effects. The way it works is through delicate enzymes the cruciferous plants naturally have, which turn poisons into harmless particles so they can be eliminated through the urine and bowel. The nice thing about these vegetables is the high amount of potassium, which helps in getting rid of fluid from the stomach.

Toxins also come from the foods we eat. It’s amazing that the ingredients that make up cookies, cakes, pies, donuts, etc., all are the same crap – high fructose corn syrup, modified corn starch, partially hydrogenated oils, artificial colors and flavors and preservatives. These are aesthetic looking, creaming colors that call your name, tempting you to take a taste. Food manufacturing companies know that if they put modified food starch in the mix, you will keep coming back for more. This is called MSG, hidden as modified food starch, which dilates your taste buds, tricking your body into the food tasting better than it really is.

A very interesting product that is about to be released is called NC 24/7, which Harmful ingredientsstands for No Cravings! 24/7. You can spray this on your tongue and all the taste for sweet will instantly disappear leaving only the sensation for all the other ingredients. People are shocked to find out that without sweet, you can actually taste all the other disgusting chemicals – like baking soda.

Sugar is very toxic to the body. There Sugarare many other hidden sugars, which by the way, deplete your body’s nutrients. These include breads, pasta, alcohol, cereals, flavored and vanilla yogurt and juice. Sugar forces a tremendous amount of stress on the liver.

A great product to try is called “Revivatox”, which is a whole body cleanser. I personally formulated it with over 18 of the most powerful detoxifiers. Combine this with Berg Essentials and you have a powerful and complete package because Berg Essentials is a blend of both cruciferous food and cruciferous sprouts, not to mention 35 additional whole food ingredients. One teaspoon of sprouts is equivalent to 10 cups of adult vegetables in phytonutrient levels.
