I found two weight loss recipes I had stored. They actually sound like a very healthy drink because lemons and parsley are so good for us and our liver.

1- 8 Day recipe to reduce belly fat:

Blend a bunch of fresh parsley in food processor.

Add juice of one organic lemon

with ½ cup of water and mix well. Drink mixture

at bedtime to lose belly fat.



Drink at bedtime for weight loss:

1 T ground ginger,

1 cucumber,

juice of one lemon

bunch of fresh parsley or cilantro,

½ glass of water.

Blend well and drink at bedtime for four weeks, then skip a week and begin again for additional weight loss.

If anyone tries either one of these, I'd like to know how you like it.

PS: Always clean your fruits and vegetables whether they are previously washed or not. Sometimes they are cleaned with chemicals that are not good for our liver. You don't have to buy the expensive veggie wash mix. A mixture of white vinegar and water works just as well.

Hi there!

Certainly your recipes sound healthy, but I can’t for the life of me see how they could reduce body fat. Unless of course they are supposed to be meal replacements which I don’t think would be recommended for PBC sufferers because of our energy crashes.

Sorry, but the message is always the same if you want to lose weight. Eat less and move more. If it was that simple to reduce fat there would be no obesity crisis.


Hi Rosehips19- It says "drink at bedtime", not mealtimes.

This is an interesting find: "Your liver loves lemons: “The lemon is a wonderful stimulant to the liver and is a dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons, liquefies the bile,” says Jethro Kloss in his book Back to Eden. Fresh lemon juice added to a large glass of water in the morning is a great liver detoxifier.

The 2nd recipe, over time, would not be recommended for anyone on blood-thinners, because Ginger is a natural blood-thinner.

I didn't know pbcers suffer from an energy crisis from lack of food. I was taught it is called "fatigue" and possibly caused from "brain fog " i.e. ammonia on the brain. It has happened to me and certainly not caused from a lack of food.

I agree, eating right and exercise is the best way for anyone to lose weight. My doctor recommends 1/2 hr. three times a week walking on the treadmill during this inclement weather.
