It is very serendipitous that the publisher sent me a book titled “Skinny Liver“. I was recently diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease also referred to as (NAFLD). I obviously was really interested in the topic and what author Kristin Kirkpatrick had to say about the symptoms, treatment and nutrition programs to combat the disease.
What is ironic is that NAFLD’s symptoms are not something that you usually feel. As Kristin stated the disease is the silent epidemic. Over 30% of the American population have the disease and many probably don’t even know they have NAFLD. It can be detected through a liver blood panel where they measure AST/ALT. Both of these are great indicators of types of liver disease or damage.
Here are just a few factoids about your liver: 1) 96% water. 2) It is the one of the largest organs. 3) It produces bile for digestion 4) It helps you resist infections. 5) It stores and releases glucose. 5) It produces cholesterol. 6) It is responsible for regular blood clotting. 7) It clears the blood of drugs. Needless to say it is one of the most important organs in our body.
In my interview with Kristin we discuss in depth the NAFLD disease, what causes it and how to change your diet and exercise program to help in reversing the disease. NAFLD has connections to other diseases as well such as Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory bowel disease and many others. I highly recommend that you listen to our interview and listen to Kristin about how to treat and hopefully reverse the disease.

We are all aware of the aging baby boomer population–thousands are turning 65 every day, and the numbers of the aging is not going to diminish. The sad statistic is that a hugh portion of this population has the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. People’s cognitive abilities are diminishing at alarming rates, and it has been proven that this can be reversed by our diet.
In my interview with nutritionist Maggie Moon and the author of a new book entitled ” The Mind Diet” we discuss the food to eat and the foods to avoid to help prevent from early onset dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. You will not be surprised to learn that a good portion of the diet is green leafy vegetables and fruits and nuts. That is not to say you can not eat fish, chicken and meat but in much smaller portions that the American diet consumes this protein today.
The Mind Diet has been proven to reduce hypertension and heart disease as well. During our interview Maggie discussed the correct food groups and the foods to avoid. We also get into the menus and recipes that she recommends.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with an expert in the Mind Diet.

As they say you are what you eat, and you really want to pay attention to what Maggie has to say about the Mind Diet.
