Dear Living Fuel Family,

You may remember from high school or perhaps from the TV game show Jeopardy! that the liver is the largest internal organ in the human body. However, body fat, also called adipose tissue, can be the largest organ in the growing numbers of those classified as overweight or obese. Once thought to lie dormant and inactive, fat, particularly abdominal fat, is actually alive, energetic, and causing havoc and dis-ease. What can we do about it?

Today on LivingFuelTV, join us as we continue a special series on my revolutionary new book The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need! Today, we read several excerpts from the book on the dangers of body fat that will challenge conventional wisdom and inspire you! Join us on the journey to Super Health!

KC: Welcome to Living Fuel TV. I’m KC Craichy with my wife, Monica. So, when you looked in the mirror this morning, how are you doing? Because two-thirds of America are overweight, over half of them are very overweight, and some even morbidly obese. Many over 100 pounds overweight. So, does that mean that only two-thirds of America has a problem? No, because we have people who are underweight. People who are essentially fat skinny people because they don’t have the muscle mass that they need to have. This really is the greatest issue of health facing America and the world today. I’ve just released a book. It’s out now called “The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need.” This took over two years of compiling research and trying to disseminate what’s important and to help people understand the details in what makes this such a big issue.

Monica: This is a great body of work. This has really been an amazing book for me to read. We all know we have to lose weight. We need to be more fit for our long-term health. But, in chapter nine you talk about 14 new reasons for losing weight. The first reason that you bring up is belly fat as well as fatty liver are big culprits.

KC: It is a big deal. Now, belly fat, what you realize or most people don’t realize, is that the fat that’s carried right here, actually becomes one of the largest endocrine organs in the body. Essentially, it’s a phantom organ that’s creating inflammatory cytokines, Interleukin 6, TNF-Alpha, and aromatase. Aromatase, an enzyme that literally converts testosterone to estrogen, so what makes a man/man into a woman, primarily female hormone. Men have it also, but not in excess. So, it’s causing all kinds of health problems.

Monica: But what are some of the health problems that that causes, just belly fat?

KC: Well, when you think about it, belly fat actually creates an environment for more belly fat. So, when you have these hormonal excretions that cause people not to want to work out, they don’t have energy. They don’t feel well. It leads to heart disease. It leads to basically every disease you can think of. If you go out and do a search on low testosterone levels in men and see what a big issue that is, in women it’s an issue also, because hormones are all about balance. When you’re overweight and you have your fat literally working against you, it’s like an enemy coming in there and trying to attack your health and to tear you down. So, if you don’t have the energy to work out, then no matter how dedicated you want to be or how motivated you are to work out, you literally are not going to go work out. So, the way people eat has a dramatic effect on their health in general. It’s a vicious spiral.

Monica: So, something else I want to read from your book on page 190. It says, “Having a very large waist, at least 47 inches for men and 43 inches for women, was associated with about twice the risk of death compared with men with waists measuring 35 inches or less and women with waists measuring 30 inches or less. Having visceral or intra-abdominal fat is considered to be a bigger health risk than fat underneath the skin or subcutaneous fat because visceral fat surrounds the internal organs.”

KC: This is a serious health issue. If you are extremely overweight, or even just overweight, this is an emergency. This is not just something that, “Gee, someday I’m going to go on a diet.” What you eat today for lunch and what you eat today for dinner really does matter. If you’re going to get in shape, we have to tell you, the last place that we tell people to go to get in shape is the gym, because you have to correct the broken metabolism. You want to feel good. You want to get your energy levels to the point where it actually takes you into the gym. Well, over the next few weeks we’re going to deal with this subject. We’re going to help you learn more about it and more about what causes it, more about what do to about it over the next few weeks. If you want to get the book, it’s available everywhere books are sold. It’s available at You can read ahead. But we’re here to help you and together we’re going to conquer this thing. God bless you, and have a great day.
