I guess it's worth a try if you haven't been losing, and it's not really all that expensive. Good luck! I hope it works for you.

Interesting perspective but I have to disagree, since it's obvious that we have toxins built up all over our bodies (ever been sore after a really good massage?)
And since the liver's entire function is to detox the body it makes sense that if it's not performing correctly you should do something about it.
I think it depends on what food groups you're cutting out, a lot of our food groups aren't good for us to begin with!
I'm going to continue to pursue the idea, I think a good detox is really healthy, would love to be able to target different organs in doing so. Just think if there was a way to detox the calcium build ups in the brain and prevent dementia!

I personally think detox is just a hype. Any diet that involves cutting food groups from your diet doesn't seem healthy to me.

If you're at a plateau, power through it! You're hypothalamus (area in your brain) is constantly trying to keep your body at homeostasis, an equilibrium state. Because you've been a certain weight for so long, your hypothalamus is used to maintaining this weight. If you lose enough weight, your hypothalamus will start to "panic" and start storing the fat you do have more efficiently making it harder to lose. This is what causes a plateau. After a while, your hypothalamus will see this plateau weight as the new homeostasis and your weight loss will continue.

Has anyone heard of or used this program by Dr. Michael Allen?? I came across it on a pinterest pin and sat through the video...I've also done a lot of searching on it and it all appears to be legit but I'm always skeptic (of course).
It seems the big part is a liver detox...maybe someone has done one of these before and knows the steps or what to follow?
I eat really well and work out hard and I can't seem to drop a pound and since HIIT is supposed to ramp up your metabolism and keep it going I can't understand what's going on! Thinking I may need to take on a feature like a detox....thoughts?

Here's the link to the Fat Loss Factor I'm talking about:
