Fatty Liver Diet; How to Get Rid of Fatty Liver?

Conclusion

NAFLD is often a reversible condition. Lifestyle modifications, such as following the Mediterranean diet, can reduce the risk of developing this disease and many others. However, the condition can become permanent when it is advanced, and fibrosis ensues, and these cases require ongoing medical treatment. That’s why medical attention is so important, and we encourage you not to underestimate fatty liver disease just because it is a prevalent ailment.

Dietary changes make up an essential part of the recommendations to control fatty liver disease. These changes include:

  • Reduce the intake of simple carbohydrates (such as sugar) in favor of complex carbohydrates (such as whole grains).
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables.
  • Choose healthy fats from nuts, seeds, fish, olive oil, avocado, and coconut.
  • Avoid saturated and trans fats.
  • Follow a healthy weight management plan.
  • Exercise regularly.
