Fatty Liver Disease

1 out of 3 americans are dealing with Fatty Liver disease.

Fatty liver disease means that the liver has accumulated fat.

One of the main reasons fatty liver disease develops is because of the high consumption of refined sugar consumption (especially fructose and high fructose corn syrup)

The liver processes fructose and can be overburdened by a high intake of this.

Fructose is fruit sugar and is in every fruit, fruit juice.
High fructose corn syrup is in every soft drink and many sweetened processed foods.

Stay away from them.

Stay away from even fruit juices even if they are freshly squeezed and organic.

Strengthen your digestive system to be able to process your food better.

Take a good quality probiotic. Choose one that has multiple strains and take them on an empty stomach (when stomach acid is low) A good time to take them is before bed and as soon as you wake up. Take 20 billion units per day.

Take digestive enzymes and 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar after all of your meals. These will help you break down your food and make it easier to digest and absorb.

Take lecithin in a liquid form. This is extremely important because lecithin will separate fat into smaller particles making it easier for the body to process and lessen the livers work. (look for sunflower lecithin or gmo free soy lecithin)

Get a high quality multivitamin

Take B-complex vitamins

Vitamin E-mixed tocopherols-400 IU/day

Eat less calories.

Try fasting once per week.

Really important nutrients that can protect your liver:

Milk thistle

Extra virgin coconut oil is a great fat to eat on a daily basis because it is made up of mct oil.
MCT oil does not get processed in the liver and is a quick energy source.

Stay away from insulin spiking carbohydrates like bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, fruit juices, and sodas.

Eat lots of vegetables with every meal.

You will know you are doing well when you start losing weight.

Exercise !!
