A fatty liver usually develops as a result of an incorrect diet.

Therefore, avoid foods that put a strain on your liver.

Every third adult and every third overweight child in Germany suffers from fatty liver.

Doctors distinguish between alcoholic fatty liver disease (AFLD, Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD, Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease).

However, the distinction cannot always be made unequivocally, since the latter arises, for example, from a combination of different risk factors, including in particular an unhealthy diet and excessive alcohol consumption.

Since there are still no medications for fatty liver, the only thing that helps here is changing your diet and avoiding foods that promote fatty liver.

Doctors speak of a fatty liver when more than 50 percent of the fat cells are fatty.

If there is no change in lifestyle and the organ remains untreated, fatty liver can lead to serious secondary diseases such as liver cirrhosis and even liver cancer.

Affected people who adjust their everyday life strictly with a balanced diet and healthy behavior can thus contribute to healing fatty liver.

Certain foods such as whole grain products, blueberries and nuts help the organ to regenerate.

On the other hand, there are also foods that patients should avoid or eat in moderation so that fatty liver can regress.

These include, for example, the following eight foods:

  • white flour products

  • Fruit juices (if only as a spritzer)

  • meat and sausage

  • Fast food and convenience products

  • Sweet fruits like grapes and pineapples

  • Soft drinks (due to their sugar content)

  • alcohol

  • Sugar and sweets (e.g. cakes, cookies, chocolate)

Healing Fatty Liver: Adopt a healthy lifestyle

When it comes to preventing or curing fatty liver, however, it's not just the type of food that counts.

Eating habits also play an important role.

Therefore, in addition to the right diet, which should not burden your liver but, in the best case, should even relieve it, also make sure that you reduce calories.

You should also take longer breaks from time to time so that the organ can recover.

If you follow this behavior consistently, you can notice an improvement after just a few weeks.

The liver can regenerate itself completely because it has strong self-healing powers.
