NAFLD or Non-Alcoholic Fatty liver Disease has become more common these days. Unhealthy life style, less sleep, less physical movements and more affinity towards fast foods have made this disease wide spread in Western Countries. Statistics available on it depicts within next ten years NAFLD will become an epidemic in the Western World. Like Diabetes and Heart diseases NAFLD will affect one person among ten in European countries.
But checking NAFLD is not a hard job either. If you are diagnosed with NAFLD and you want to revert back from your condition, you’ve come to a right place.
Here are some simple fatty liver diet plans to free you from NAFLD:
1. Your diet must contain good proportion of carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins. Plenty of green vegetables, cereals and pulses can provide carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals in your body. Always avoid those foods with high fat and sugar.
Dietitian can advice you correctly examining our NAFLD condition, body weight, BP and other vital matters. Follow what the expert advices you strictly. 10% loss of body weight will reduce fats from your liver to a great extent. At the same time this reduction of weight is also necessary to minimize the risk of heart blockage or kidney disorders.
You need to know that all our body parts are interconnected. Problem occurring in one part may affect other vital organs too. Like higher sugar level in the blood can damage kidney or eye, higher cholesterol level in blood may cause heart blockage and fatty liver. Excess fats in level may make it defunct- assimilation of foods in tissues is becoming irregular thus making the entire body system less functional.
2. There is no readymade replacement for fruit and vegetables. They are the source of all necessary ingredients like carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals. Fruits are major sources of anti- oxidants.
3. These foods are not costlier either. An orange or an apple has sufficient vitamins and minerals to protect your body from many external disease causing viruses. Likewise Banana is considered as a super food, which has all sorts of food materials like carbohydrates, Vitamin A, B and C and important minerals like potassium, iron and zinc. So, say NO to processed foods. These are expensive for your pocket and harmful for your body.
4. There is an old concept that consumption of fatty foods cause excess fats in our body. But recent studies revealed fat itself is not the “culprit”- it’s the starch that causes the fat molecules to reside more and more in our body. Starch molecules create a basement for the fat molecules. So consumption of more carbohydrates and starch is the primary reason of rapid increase of fats in our body.
So, take less sugar and less starchy foods to reduce fats from your liver. Follow what your dietitian advises. The fact is right quantity of foods in right way and in right time is the formula behind healthy liver.
