Be careful of fats!
Your liver is responsible for producing bile that breaks down fats, so one area of your diet you want to be sure you don’t forget about is the type of fats you eat. Some fat in your liver is normal. But if it makes up more than 5%-10% of the organ’s weight, you may have fatty liver disease. One type of fatty liver disease is called the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or NAFLD (the other type being “alcoholic”) which is more likely to happen to those who are middle-aged and overweight or obese. People like that often have high cholesterol and diabetes as well. So, start losing some weight today.
Eating healthy fats like almonds, coconut, walnuts, hemp, chia, and flax, along with pumpkin and sunflower seeds, olives, and avocado are all the best sources of fat for your diet. Avoid animal fats that lead to artery-clogging inflammation and avoid vegetable oils (like corn and soy) at all costs.
