Victoria, Okay, I have been getting your newsletters for months and I have enjoyed the motivation tremendously. I have to confess I have not lost 1 pound yet. It’s not because your advice has not been valuable, it has. I just have not committed myself to getting fit yet. I am tired of feeling ashamed every time I want to wear something cute and I fell like a humpty dumpty all round in the middle.
I am ready. I really am ready! Please help me. I don’t want to miss any more “life” as you always say.
NOW, Today I am ready to start losing fat. As I look at all of your newsletters, there is so much great information. I feel like I am at a fitness and diet buffet and everything is so good, I don’t know where to start. Can you give me a couple of ideas that can help me see results that can motivate me to go for my goals without turning back.
Callie, Welcome Home. Welcome to the world of Body Revival, your infinite portal to personal power, independent thinking, awesome fitness and abundant living. Your destiny is locked up in your body! God gave you a body to put His Spirit in. You are a steward of the greatest vessel on this intelligently designed planet.
First of all do not think about what you are giving up or what you will leave behind. ONLY meditate and think upon your desires, goals and dreams. ALWAYS keep your eyes, your heart and mind focused on YOUR Goal!
The minute you decide to change and improve, every temptation starts to show up. People will try to make you feel guilty and selfish. Shut their words out of your mind. Your body is your temple. It’s the only means of life you have. Your first priority is your body, your health, your energy and your gift.
I went on my first diet in the first grade and everyone has been trying to stop me from dieting every since. I have come to the realization that if I don’t take care of my body, NO ONE else is going to do it for me.
Callie, I can totally relate your description of feeling like humpty dumpty. I decided that I wanted to wear cute clothes just like you. I too had a big round midsection, except I wore hideous clothes made for old grannies to cover up my visible lack of discipline and selfcare.
I had tried every diet ever written. I was the chief yoyo dieter. I found a plan that is not a diet, it’s a healthy way of eating that I can and WILL do the rest of my hot body life. Once you understand it and get into it, you will never go back to your old ways. Unless of course you can’t stand feeling great, being energetic, shopping for beautiful clothes that accent your new shape instead of hiding your dimply flaws.
Even this morning I had a HUGE breakfast and I know that the food I ate is actually going to help me burn fat instead of making me fat. I Love this plan.
Now that you are ready, here are two mysteries about burning fat that no one told you about. IF not addressed, they will shut down your body’s ability to burn massive amounts of fat!
Toxic Liver Dehydration
1. Keep Your Liver clean Supporting Your Liver Means Supporting Your Body's Ability To Detoxify and Burn Obnoxious Stored Body Fat.
Few people know much about the liver or liver function. Yet liver disease is the fourth most common cause of death in our country after cancer, heart disease and strokes. Learning to support your body's detoxification processes and your immune system means learning to support your liver. The liver's processes are vital to fat burning and overall health.
The liver is often compared to a chemical laboratory, a storage plant, a warehouse, a power plant and a waste disposal plant all encompassed in one organ. It’s described that way because of its phenomenal assemblage of membrane structures, internal machinery and chemical production.
Here are some of its functions
- Creates bile, essential to the digestion and absorption of fat
- Also creates immune substances like gamma globulin
- Metabolizes fats, proteins and carbohydrates
- Manufactures blood proteins, including prothrombin and fibrinogen, the anticoagulant heparin, albumin and globulins required for maintaining water balance and contributing to blood viscosity.
- Filters the blood to remove chemicals and bacteria
- Helps maintain electrolyte and water balance
- Breaks down and eliminates hormones
- Stores vitamins, minerals and sugars
Callie, I know this all sounds highly medical, but this is totally amazing information. I always want my people to know the how and why of fat burning to lose body fat.
Many toxins that we consume or are exposed to will not dissolve in water. These toxins, called lipidsoluble, will only dissolve in oil or oily solutions. Fatty tissue or tissues that have lipid soluble membranes, like the liver, can store lipid soluble toxins for months or years. One of the liver's jobs is to convert these toxins from lipidsoluble to watersoluble. Once they are water soluble, or can be dissolved by water, they can be flushed from the body, released by the kidneys or bowels. This change takes place in the liver through a complex system of enzymes.
SO you can see the importance of getting the right food plan with high fiber content and avoiding dehydration that can shut down the release and flushing of fats!!

Dehydration Shuts down Fat Burning
In the past ten years of research and experience on the subject of fast fat burning and getting fit quickly, I’ve discovered that dehydration will shut down fat burning and wreak catabolic havoc on your muscle tissue. Basically that means that you lose muscle and store fat! AAHHHH
What are these magical agents of fat burning wizardry… Water and Fiber. Let me explain why…
I know you have heard from me that water is important for your fat burning effectiveness but even still, most people I get emails from still don’t drink enough water daily seven days per week.
Water is vital to your fat burning efforts and maintaining your lean body mass. Our bodies are about 6570% water.
Dehydration is often misread as hunger. Your body is seeking fluids and electrolytes and you interpret it as hunger and start snacking on sugary snacks instead of fruit that your body is craving.
That is why water and water based good Glycemic fruit keeps you from snacking on unhealthy sugary foods and sugarladen soft drinks. That is why I use the Glycemic Index in my Quick Start Energy Program. You can drop fat fast; lose overall body weight without going hungry. Increase your energy while lowering your risk of heart disease, stroke and the new dreaded disease plaguing women, diabetes.
Fluid more important than food!
Did you know that we need water in our bodies more than we need food. The body can survive for much longer without food that without water. Water is like the oil in the engines of our cars. It is involved in almost every process the body goes through, from digestion to nutrient absorption. It also keeps your energy level up as it prevents dehydration.
Now, this is very important…dehydration will totally kill your chances of burning fat, because the body interprets this as a state of metabolic shock. It shifts its focus on getting water and stops doing other things, like burning body fat for energy. And here’s even more helpful info about the power of water. Try this little trick I got from an obesity specialist in France to burn even more calorie.
Try and drink most if not all of your water ice cold. First of all, it typically tastes better ice cold, and every time you drink an ounce of ice cold water, your body must burn about a calorie in the process of warming the water to your current body temperature. Now, you can use this to your advantage to burn even more calories each day. Keep your water intake to 100 ounces per day, and you’ll burn an extra 100 calories and burn more fat! How cool is that!
Also, add some lemon to your water. It has positive effects in helping cleanse your liver. Remember, if your organs, especially the kidneys and liver, are working together with high efficiency, it will be easier for your body to burn fat!
Keeping yourself hydrated will keep your kidneys operating at a peak levels and your liver will be allowed to do its job of metabolizing stored fat for energy.
There you have it Callie. Those to me are the two most important factors you want to address first when you begin your fast fat loss program this week. I believe you should just flat out attack this situation with great vigor. Don’t casually start and lose the fire.
Take your body back and you will own your future!
