The Liver Body Type and Thyroid Body Type eating plan involves adding more protein (average 25 grams per day) to the Detox Phase.

(from the 7 Principles of Fat Burning Dr. Eric Berg)

The main differences between Liver and Thyroid meals are:

1. Liver Body Type eats more cruciferous vegetables and Thyroid Body Type consumes non-cruciferous vegetables or adds some iodine foods with them (sea kelp, dulse or alfalfa).

2. Liver Body Type has no snacks between meals and Thyroid Body Type does have snacks between meals.

If you get hungry or are not satisfied, add some more vegetables to these meal plans. It is also recommended that you keep your omega fats balanced. Most of the nuts and seeds are rich in omega 6; and by adding flax each day, which is high in omega 3 either 1 teaspoon of flax oil or 3 flaxseed-oil perles you will maintain the correct ratio of these essential fats.
