Eating Habits That Contribute to a Fatty Liver
According to studies, your diet is closely tied in with the creation of fatty liver. That’s what researchers worldwide are reporting in their research. Thus, by reversing your eating habits that are out of alignment with healthy eating, you can then prevent and reverse fatty liver disease. Fatty liver disease is reversible if you attack it with good nutrition in its early stages.
Below is a list of 11 eating habits to make sure you are already including in your daily routines:
1 Stop eating processed fats and hydrogenated fats.
Check the labels of the foods you are eating; when you see hydrogenated fats on the list, discard the food. It’s contributing to the promotion of a fatty liver.
2 Replace your vegetable oils with olive oil and coconut oil.
The most easily oxidized oils are the vegetable oils (corn, safflower, vegetable, soy, canola) because they are not stable; their chemical composition makes them subject to breakdown by light and heat. Eliminating these oils from your diet helps preserve your antioxidant levels.
3 Stop eating sugar and sugary foods.
Sugar affects your immunity, your metabolism, and your blood sugar levels. It also is a sure way to gain weight. When blood sugar levels aren’t stable, metabolic syndrome occurs. Metabolic syndrome is tied closely with fatty liver disease.
4 If you’re drinking coffee, make sure it’s organic.
Non-organic coffee is loaded with chemicals and pesticides. Non-organic decaffeinated coffee is additionally loaded with nickel. The more toxins you consume, the harder you make your liver work.
5 Eat healthy protein foods, in serving sizes.
Eating 4 ounces protein (chicken, fish, beef, buffalo, wild meats, pork, poultry) twice daily is not excessive. Don’t fear red meat; fear only the overconsumption of commercially grown red meats. When cattle consume a diet based on corn, it alters the composition of the fats in the meat. However, there is nothing wrong with grass fed beef.
6 Take supplements that correct any nutritional deficiencies you might have.
Nutritional deficiencies, such as methionine, choline, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E are tied to fatty liver. You need all vitamins and minerals, not just some of them. Take a good program of supplements.
7 Make sure antioxidants are amongst your current supplements.
The antioxidants vitamin C, E and A have been shown in the research to be medically important to prevent and reverse fatty liver.
8 Stop the alcohol.
Alcoholic drinks cause fatty liver disease.
9 Stop eating rancid nuts, especially peanuts.
Nuts that are rancid often contain the mold aspergillus, which creates the toxin aflatoxin. Peanuts are notorious for their high content of aflatoxin. Aflatoxin kills liver cells.
10 Don’t overeat foods with saturated fats.
Foods with saturated fats are more stable in the body than unsaturated (vegetable oils) but you can still eat too many of them. Don’t overeat them.
11 Avoid the salty foods.
High amounts of salt place an extra burden on the body and especially the liver. You need a pinch of salt each day, but not much more than that.
