The fat does hold some of the waste or irritants of the body. The thighs should be muscle and not fat.
Fat is quickly removed by orange juice fasting or just plain eating foods supplied by Nature.
I seen a man yesterday that started making his own wheat grass drinks and he had a before picture and it looked like M.O.G.s before picture. This man never fasted 108 days, never fasting 1 day and his body weight went down to 134# in less than 108 days and looked in perfect health. How on earth you "fast" for 108 days and not be slim and trim is the mystery.
"IF" we have unwanted fat, the cause is the diet and so is the cure the diet.
