Silymarin, milk thistle, is an herb that strengthens the liver. I use this, when I can get it, anytime I am losing weight. Milk thistle protects the liver from toxins, which are often stored in body tissues including fats. emoticon

    All toxins that enter your body; whether by ingestion, inhalation or absorption, have to be processed by the liver. When the liver has more toxins coming in than it can handle, it stores them in the fat. The liver will not allow you to lose fat if you are taking in a lot of toxins, because it needs the storage area. Eat organic foods as much as possible. Be cautious and thoroughly wash all produce to remove pesticide residue on produce that is not organic.
