  • The main causes of fatty liver disease are unhealthy diets and inactive lifestyles. This condition is aggravated if you consume excessive amounts of carbohydrates, sugary foods and foods made from white flour. So, avoid such foods and cut carbohydrates from your diet as much as possible.
  • Keep your consumption of foods like bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, cereals and foods rich in flour to a bare minimum. Regularly follow a healthy exercise regimen.
  • If you are suffering from diabetes or are at risk of the same, then seek medical attention immediately for timely diagnosis and treatment to prevent the development of liver problems like fatty liver disease.
  • Consult expert doctors and nutritionists and get yourself vaccinated to reduce your risk. Totally refrain from alcohol consumption or at least make sure not to exceed one drink in a day and desist from drinking for a minimum of 2 days every week.
  • Consume generous servings of both  cooked vegetables as well as raw salads along with fruits. If you are suffering from high blood sugar levels, then do not eat more than a couple of servings of fruits daily.
  • Consume lots of healthy protein-based foods like eggs, poultry, meats, nuts, legumes, dairy products etc regularly. Avoid vegetable oils and margarines in your diet.
  • Go for healthy fats in the form of oily fishes, olive oils, flaxseeds, coconut oils, nuts etc. Try to avoid fruit juices and have raw vegetable juices combined with very little quantities of fruit juices instead to get your share of minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that can come in handy in preventing this condition.
  • If you are diagnosed with this condition, never forget to take the right medications and diligently follow your doctor's advice. You can use a high-quality liver tonic with an optimum mix of B vitamins, antioxidants , amino acids rich in sulfur along with a special variety of thistle and is clinically approved to be 100% safe.
