Lose Weight With Lecithin

This post has been seen 939 times.

Lecithin comes from the Greek word “Lekithos,” which means “egg yolk.” All living organisms contain lecithin. Your liver produces this fatty substance in bile. Every cell in your body needs lecithin. So how does lecithin help you lose weight? Lecithin is a fat emulsifier, breaking down fat and liquefying it, so it’s no longer stored in your body. When you take lecithin supplements or eat foods high in lecithin, your body burns fat much more efficiently.

Nutritionist and author Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, proved in a six-week study of 30 clients that adding two eggs to their diets and drinking water and lemon juice (a bile thinner) twice daily resulted in weight loss for all, without exercise changes. “One woman lost 21 pounds over the six-week period,” Gittleman said.
