How to Clean a Fatty Liver

Fatty liver sounds like something you would serve to your enemies for dinner. But it is not a laughing matter at all. People who get diagnosed with this condition should look to reverse it as soon as possible. Here, we have a couple of remedies that could do exactly that for you.

What Is a Fatty Liver?

Fatty liver is just a liver that has deposits of fat. All of us have fat in our livers. But people who have too much can develop serious health issues. The liver, which is the second biggest organ in our body, has a vital role in our well-being. Everything we drink and eat goes through the liver. This organ removes harmful substances from our blood.

A liver that has too much fat has reduced function. In a state like this, it can do more harm than good. The good news is that fatty liver can be reversed. The optimal level of fat in our liver stands between 5% to 10% of its entire mass.

How to Clean a Fatty Liver

The usual suspect when it comes to fatty liver is alcohol. Other reasons for this health problem include diabetes and obesity. With causes like this, it is evident that a change in lifestyle can reduce fat levels in the liver. The best thing that you can do is stop drinking, avoid foods that contain fatty acids and sugar, and also keep your blood sugar levels in line.

People who think that losing weight can reverse fatty liver are correct. Getting rid of excess weight is the easiest way to lose liver fat. It has been proven that people who lose 10% of their body weight also reduce fat levels in the liver. Doctors claim that even 3% body weight loss can have a positive effect on our liver.

The other frequent question is whether fasting can help a fatty liver. The answer is yes and no. There are some claims that it helps a lot, but others claim that more research on this subject is needed for a final judgment.

How Long Does It Take to Reverse Fatty Liver?

There is no timeline set for the reversal of this condition. Several factors determine the outcome of fatty liver treatment. The most important thing is at what stage of the fatty liver have you started treating it. A second thing is tied to your determination in taking on a healthy lifestyle. The sooner you bring your life in line, the faster will your liver get better.

If the first thing you do after being diagnosed with this issue is to stop drinking, start eating better, and work on losing weight, the improvements will be seen in a couple of months. When you get to the point that your body weight is down by 10%, you will know that you are on the right track.

Reversing fatty liver to its original state also depends on your motivation. If you are highly motivated to make healthy lifestyle changes, you will have better results. The more effort you put in to reducing fat in the liver, the shorter amount of time you will need to spend in reversing it.

This condition is one where everything that can be done is up to you. It can be reversed, and the best way to do so is by making lifestyle changes. The liver is one of the most important organs in our bodies. So if you have been diagnosed with this condition, you shouldn’t waste any time—start the treatment immediately.

Healthy Diet

To help prepare your diet, we’re going to talk a bit about the foods you should consume to reverse fatty liver. The best choices include broccoli, garlic, sardines, walnuts, salmon, and other fresh fish. You should also consume vegetables, whole grain bread, oatmeal, and wheat bran cereal.
