How can I undo damage from fast food? For years dinner had consisted of fast food four times a week. Now that I’m in my thirties and too busy to exercise, I’ve gained 60 pounds. My doctor said I’m officially obese, so I’m trying to cook at home more. But the weight loss is so slow. How can I speed things up?

It sounds like your liver is so burned out from years of processing fast food that it can’t burn fat efficiently despite those healthier meals. To jump-start your weight loss, drink 6 oz. of water mixed with the juice of half a lemon or lime two or three times daily. And add a little rind and pith (the white spongy tissue) to each cup. The fruit’s nomilin (which is in the juice but is super concentrated in the rind and pith) ups liver-cell turnover so the organ is better able to burn fat. Nomilin also boosts activity of the liver’s detoxifying enzyme glutathione S-transferase and increases output of fat-dissolving bile. After two weeks (the minimum time the liver needs to recover) of drinking the mixture, the weight will fall off at a faster rate—up to 6 pounds a week. Then you can reduce your citrus-water dose to one glass daily, preferably in the morning to get the liver primed to burn fat all day.
