We can personally vouch for the benefits of a cleansed Liver. In fact, only recently we went on the Liver Cleansing Diet for a second time. The best part of this Diet is it is delicious food, you are never hungry and your body shape changes dramatically. The downside is the scales are slow to move. It’s a gradual weight loss that has more chance of staying off. The more weight you are carrying the quicker it drops off. If you want a sustainable plan that is easy to follow, you will love this.
The level of your energy massively increases the cleaner your liver becomes. We have found a version of the diet and the recipes available on Kindle for a few dollars and we highly recommend it to you – Check out the Liver Cleansing Diet here
