Your liver's main activity is to convert poisons into waste, which can then be discharged from the body. It serves more than 400 purposes in the body, from processing fats, with its buddy, the gallbladder, to putting away basic vitamins and minerals (like iron), filtering the excesses stored in the digestive organs and breaking down medications and alcohol.
When you have a sluggish liver, the poisons start to accumulate and become stored as fatty tissue. They won't be expelled until your liver is functioning at its optimum capacity again, and this might, very well, be the reason why, no matter how strictly you follow the diet, you can't get thinner. It can also be the reason why you’re always too tired or too sick to exercise.
Even if your liver is not sluggish, a demanding lifestyle with sleepless nights, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, stress and bad food can overload its capacity to process toxins and diminish its efficiency.
