Fatty Liver Symptoms can impede a weight loss program through reduced fat metabolism and reduced fat burning, one of the liver's main functions, as well as seriously impacting on your health. Fatty Liver Symptoms are especially common in people who drink too much alcohol, have high blood triglycerides, have diabetes, are obese or overweight, follow poor nutrition weight loss programs, eat a lot of junk food and trans-fats, or who follow diets that are too calorie restrictive.
As a matter of fact, many people who follow calorie restrictive weight loss programs and yo-yo diets end up with gallstones and gallbladder disease and Impaired Liver Function. This in turn perpetuates the weight loss / weight gain vicious cycle (commonly known as yo-yo dieting), often resulting in insulin resistance / metabolic syndrome, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (Ovarian Cyst Syndrome) or Diabetes. The more of the following symptoms that apply to you, the more likely it is that Impaired Liver Function may be a major cause of your poor health and weight loss struggles:
The liver is one of the most important organs in our body because it is not only responsible for fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism, but it also processes and detoxifies our bodies of any toxic substances we ingest.
The liver also cleanses the body of waste products such as those formed from the breakdown of protein (at least it does when liver function isn't impaired as in Fatty Liver!).
Years of poor diets including the over-consumption of fatty foods, sugars and refined carbohydrates, as well as chemical overloads such as antibiotics, painkillers and environmental toxins all contribute to overworking your liver, resulting in Fatty Liver symptoms. Your liver is faced with the tremendous job of processing all these toxins and as the years go by, it becomes less and less effective at its job.
Poor diets in particular make your liver work overtime to process all the fat and high GI refined carbohydrates and over time this often leads to gallbladder disease and gallstones and fatty liver symptoms, as well as problems associated with blood sugar metabolism such as insulin resistance, hypoglycemia and diabetes. The liver is responsible for turning glucose into glycogen and storing it in the liver. If blood sugar levels drop too low, the liver releases the glucose to meet the body’s needs.
As time goes on and your diet doesn’t improve, your liver becomes less able to cope with filtering out toxins and burning fat and your liver function becomes impaired. At that point, the liver doesn’t regulate fat metabolism very well and instead of burning fat or eliminating fat and cholesterol through the intestines, the liver starts to become a fat-storer. When the liver has progressed to the stage of exhibiting fatty liver symptoms, then it develops deposits of fatty tissue in the liver and its function is impaired.
If the liver function is impaired and exhibits fatty liver symptoms, it cannot process or metabolise circulating fat in the bloodstream, so this fat gets deposited in many areas of the body, including in organs and under the skin. If you have fatty liver symptoms, is essential to restore the liver to its previous state of health where its functions include carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism. This can be done in various ways, including a liver detox.

Learn how reversing Leptin Resistance will re-establish your natural "weight regulation system" and stop yo-yo dieting forever ... and help to reverse Fatty Liver Symptoms!
... And what is Leptin Resistance?
Leptin Resistance is something that not many people have heard about, even though it has been in the research papers since about 1994. At that time, researchers thought that this was the answer to obesity.
They thought this because studies had been done with rats where if they gave leptin to obese rats, the rats started to lose weight. That made them think that that if they put leptin in a tablet and gave it to overweight people, they would lose weight, but unfortunately this has not been the case. As usual, human biology is too complicated for such a simplistic solution!
When leptin works properly, when we gain weight, our own fat tissues release the hormone leptin which suppresses our appetite and speeds up our metabolism to burn off the fat so that we return to our original weight. Can you believe it? Our fat actually regulates itself and returns us to our optimal weight or set-point! Leptin also helps us to feel full and satisfied after eating and reduces sugar and food cravings. Basically, it tells us when to eat and when to stop.
This is why you will often see healthy slim people who eat amazing amounts of food, but they burn it all off. We enviously attribute this to their incredible fast metabolisms.
And this is perfectly correct. They do have fast metabolisms. But the interesting thing is that this is the natural order of things.
This is how our bodies were created and all human beings have this capability … until we unbalance our body’s natural weight-regulation system. Yes, that’s right … if our bodies were working as nature intended, then if you gained a few pounds, your body’s natural weight-regulation system would burn them off automatically.
Simply put, leptin is the hormone that regulates our appetites and our metabolism. It also regulates how much fat we are going to store and how much fat we are going to burn. It is the hormone that regulates our body’s set-point, that is, the weight that our body naturally wants to settle at. Quite obviously, this is an incredibly important hormone!
When leptin is working properly in a healthy body, it perpetuates a delicate balance of speeding up and slowing down metabolism, storing and burning fat and suppressing and triggering appetite in order to keep your weight balanced. When this mechanism is tampered with, it doesn’t work properly and you develop leptin resistance.
Once this happens, that delicate balance is destroyed and we are caught in an endless loop of slow metabolism, fat-storage, increased food cravings, hunger and increased appetite and of course the end result of this is endless weight gain. On top of that, the body will develop various annoying symptoms, including fatty liver symptoms. These fatty liver symptoms will make you feel very unwell and include painful symptoms like fibromyalgia, muscle aches and pain, burning sensations, sleep disorders and even hot flashes!
There is a very strong correlation between leptin resistance and fatty liver symptoms. When your liver is not working properly, it affects virtually every area of your body and especially hormones. Leptin is a hormone and you will often find that people with Fatty Liver Symptoms have many different hormonal imbalances including leptin resistance, impaired thyroid, exhausted adrenal glands and insulin resistance. All these different hormones are inter-connected and rely on a healthy hormonal system to work efficiently and often when one is imbalanced, others will be imbalanced as well, triggering a vicious cycle that seems never-ending.
This is why weight gain is a symptom of each of the above-mentioned hormonal imbalances, as well as one of the Fatty Liver Symptoms. Leptin Resistance is the key-pin hormone that starts the vicious cycle ... and then perpetuates it. That's why it is essential to detoxify the liver and support it and help it to heal itself. The liver is an amazing organ with tremendous regenerative powers. It just needs a bit of help to reverse the fatty liver condition and the fatty liver symptoms.Click here for more information on Leptin Resistance and reversing Fatty Liver Symptoms...
