The fatty liver occurs when excess fat accumulates inside the liver cells. This means normal, healthy liver tissue get replaced with fatty tissue. The fat starts to invade the liver, gradually infiltrating the healthy liver areas, so that less and less healthy liver tissue remains. The fatty liver has a yellow greasy appearance and is often enlarged and swollen with fat. This fatty infiltration slows down the metabolism of body fat stores, which means that the liver burns fat less efficiently, resulting in weight gain and inability to lose weight. However some people can have a fatty liver even without being overweight.

  • Raw vegetables and fruits are the most powerful liver healing foods. These help to cleanse and repair the liver filter, so that it can trap and remove more fat and toxins from the bloodstream.
  • Protein is important because it helps to keep the blood sugar level stable, helps with weight loss from the abdomen and reduces hunger and cravings. Protein should be consumed with each meal.
  • Healthy fats should be included more in the diet. They are found in olive oil, coconut oil, flaxseeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds and raw nuts and seeds.
  • Most processed vegetable oils and margarines worsen the condition of fatty liver.
  • Deep fried foods are also bad for those with a fatty liver.
  • Drink raw vegetable juices, these should be consumed 2 to 3 times a week and a quantity of 250 to 300 mls (8 to 10 ounces) is adequate.
  • The citrus fruits are quite healthy for the liver and should form a part of daily diet regularly; they also augment the process of natural detoxification.
