Just four pages into our Cellulite Book-of-the-Month (BOTM), the author already touched on several important cellulite subjects we could talk about all day. One of those subjects is lecithin. We’ve brought up lecithin before (in this post on grass-fed butter and this post on Celluscience from GNC), but Ann Louise gives us more information on how lecithin is effective against cellulite.
According to Gittleman, the secret to fat loss is in the liver. The liver produces bile which is used to break down fats. If the liver is lacking certain nutrients or congested with chemicals or other toxins, it won’t be able to do its job efficiently.
Since one of the primary ingredients of bile is lecithin, Ann Louise began by adding lecithin-rich eggs to her diet. She describes lecithin is “a highly effective emulsifier with a detergent-like ability to break up fats.” She also added diluted lemon juice twice a day (lemon and water is a known bile thinner). She was amazed when not only did her cholesterol drop twenty points, but she also dropped the pounds at the same time.
Ann Louise saw similar results in a test group of thirty patients she put on the same program. In addition to eating two eggs a day and drinking lemon water twice daily, the group was instructed to avoid caffeine and medications as much as possible. All thirty patients lost weight (particularly at the waistline) with one woman losing over twenty pounds in a six-week period.
We’ll have more info from our Cellulite BOTM next week. Can’t wait to see what Ann Louise says in the next section: “the role of fat-burning fats.”
I’m still figuring out how to set up our forum, but feel free to come over and say hi while I’m working on it. It’s always nice to hear from my fellow cellulite investigators!
