Diet for fatty liver is a helpful means to treat and reverse the disease. Watch what you are eating and make sure that you supplement your healthy diet with exercise.
Fatty liver is a condition that involves the liver cells accumulating excess fat; whereby the liver itself is composed of 10% or more of fat. Fatty liver can lead to the development of more serious problems. Thus, treatments should be properly administered. One possible treatment is diet for fatty liver. Proper diet will help prevent further accumulation of fat and other health issues. Lower Intake Of Saturated Fats And CholesterolIf you are suffering from this condition, you need to avoid foods with high saturated fat contents like poultry meat with skin, yolks of eggs, hydrogenated vegetable oil, butter, avocados, whole milk dairies and processed grain foods. Instead, the foods to eat are lean meats, low-fat dairies, whole grains, diet margarines, vegetables and fruits. Too much cholesterol can also contribute to the progression of the disease and further result to permanent organ damage. When cholesterol builds up in the organ, antioxidants are exhausted; liver cells are damaged by inflammation. You need to avoid high cholesterol foods like bacon, poultry skin, coconut and palm oil and fatty meat. Consume low cholesterol foods such as whole grains, vegetables, fruits and legumes. Avert From SugarsSugars are carbohydrates and carbohydrates can be converted to fats that dangerously build up in the liver. Sweet foods containing sucrose include candies, pies and cakes. These foods may satisfy your cravings, but they can supply your body with very little nutritional value. You may still eat them once in a while so as not to binge on your favorite taboo foods. Reduce serving sizes so you can still enjoy their taste while not taking in a lot of calories. This also involves choosing your carbohydrates wisely. Just like many other things, carbohydrates can either be bad or good. Too sweet sugary foods mentioned above are the bad kinds of carbohydrates (white flour and sugary treats). They are quickly digested and cause massive release of glucose. Good kinds are those that contain more nutritional contents. There are also those kinds of carbohydrates that take longer to be broken down by the body; thus, causing fewer to no dramatic spikes in your blood sugar. Examples of good carbohydrates are whole grain foods like oatmeal, vegetables and brown rice. Avoid Alcoholic DrinksExcessive alcohol consumption can also contribute to fatty liver. Thus, avoiding alcoholic beverages may also help in preventing further complications and may help to actually reverse the condition is alcohol is totally eliminated. Beverages you can safely drink are water and coffee. As for drinking coffee, enjoy the health benefits it offers by ensuring you are drinking in moderate amounts. Support For A Healthy DietDiet is just one of the two important factors to wellness. Hand in hand with proper dieting is exercise and keeping an active lifestyle. Exercising can help fight against the main causes of the condition. Exercise can help in lowering triglyceride and cholesterol; reduce excess body weight and maintain blood sugar levels. If you have fatty liver, follow a proper diet and perform appropriate physical activities for a minimum of 30 minutes a few days in one week. Consult with your doctor to determine which exercises are good for you.
