The Best Diet For Fatty Liver Disease

If you are overweight there is a strong possibility that you have or will get fatty liver disease. The term fatty liver means exactly that. When you eat, any fat that isn't burnt off gets placed around your body. Anything left after that is stored in the liver.

So to get rid of this excess fat you need to diet and this is where it can get confusing for some people. Most diets will require you to regulate what you eat and count calories; this will cause the body to lose some weight but not really have any effect on your livers functionality. The best diet for fatty liver disease is tailored towards increasing the livers functionality whilst losing weight.

The conventional diet enables you to lose weight but it is well documented that in a large number of cases weight loss will slow down and in some cases will actually stop.

One reason for this is inadequate digestion and research again shows that it affects most of us.

The liver is a vital organ that makes a large contribution to digestion. The liver is responsible for creating a substance called bile, which gets transported into the gallbladder. Bile is used to help break down dietary fats.

Our bodies will naturally produce a large quantity of enzymes which aid us to carry out the digestion process but because of poor eating habits, our age, stress, food additives, preservatives and an unbalanced diet, it is not uncommon for our body to stop making the required quantities of each enzyme to adequately digest the food we eat.

If you are not producing enough of these enzymes to actually digest your food then weight loss and liver functionality will be minimal. The answer is to incorporate a natural digestion supplement or start eating certain foods that assist digestion.

Another extremely important factor to have in a fatty liver diet is controlled weight loss. To obtain controlled weight loss we need a hormone called Leptin. This is the No1 fat burning hormone in our bodies and the key to consistently losing weight.

Simply put, to continually burn fat you need high levels of Leptin and highly sensitive Leptin Receptors.

So if we use the conventional diet as a fatty liver diet your Leptin levels will drop.

Let me explain why.

Every time you reduce your calorie intake your Leptin levels drop and you burn fat slowly. The reason for this is Leptin protects your body from starvation. When you reduce your calorie intake (a diet) your body sees this as a time to store what fat you have as a survival method. This is what causes your Leptin levels to drop. The more fat you lose, the lower your Leptin levels become and the slower you burn fat.

This is only half of the problem, because of high body fat levels and general bad eating habits, over the years you start to get Leptin resistance. This means even when you have high levels of Leptin it is no longer able to properly signal fat burning to your body which dramatically reduces your fat burning efforts.

So the best diet for fatty liver disease is one that increases your ability to digest the foods that you eat, increases Leptin Levels on certain days and most importantly eliminates Leptin resistance.
