Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is most often caused by an unhealthy diet.

In contrast, Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (AFLD) is due to alcohol abuse.

However, the distinction made by physicians is not always clear.

It is usually a combination of several risk factors that ultimately leads to fatty degeneration of the liver cells.

Even if there are no drugs against it, fatty liver – which only becomes noticeable gradually – can still be cured: Adjustments here are an adjustment in lifestyle and in particular a change in diet.

If you want to reverse or prevent fatty liver, you should focus on certain foods.

Some fruits are particularly good at promoting liver health.

Every third adult and every third overweight child in Germany suffers from fatty liver - so fatty liver is now considered a disease of civilization.

Since there is still no drug therapy, only a change in lifestyle can help.

If this succeeds, however, the liver can recover and even heal.

However, if the liver cells become fatty over a longer period of time, this can lead to serious secondary diseases from fatty liver, such as liver cirrhosis and even liver cancer.

It is all the more important for those affected or for people who want to prevent fatty liver to pay attention to a few dietary rules.

In the case of fatty liver disease, vegetables should form the basis of the daily diet.

Saturating protein in the form of legumes, nuts, eggs, poultry, fish or dairy products, for example, as well as high-quality vegetable oils such as wheat germ or rapeseed oil should also be on the daily menu.

Low-sugar fruits can also help detoxify and heal the liver.

For example, the following seven types of fruit are particularly suitable due to their low sugar content:

  • Apple

  • avocado

  • blackberries

  • clementines

  • plums

  • blueberries

  • Orange

Heal fatty liver: Fruits rich in sugar are only recommended to a limited extent

In addition to the fruits mentioned, other fruits such as apricots, strawberries, kiwi, crapefruit, raspberries, currants or sour cherries are also low-sugar varieties.

On the other hand, grapes, pineapple, banana, mango or cherries, for example, contain a lot of sugar, which is why they are only recommended to a limited extent for fatty liver.

Sugared fruit preserves, sugared dried fruit, candied fruit or fruit puree are not suitable at all when it comes to liver health.

The liver is also relieved by a diet that keeps insulin and blood sugar levels low.

The so-called Logi method is particularly recommended so that the liver can regenerate.

For this you should avoid carbohydrates such as pastries, bread, pasta of all kinds, rice or only eat them in moderation.
