Jan. 16, 2022 – When excessive fat accumulates within the liver due to alcohol, it is known as alcoholic fatty liver disease. However, when the same happens due to excessive intake of refined sugars, sugary drinks, and saturated fats, it is known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Fret not, with some simple diet tips, you can give your liver a healthier life and promote longevity as well. Keep reading.

Practice a carb curfew: Even while eating healthy foods, one needs to be extra careful about every meal in order to guard the liver; and when it comes to NAFLD risk and management, weight gain is an important driving factor. And for weight management, practicing a carb curfew can help, that is, restricting you from carb intake during a particular time during the day – preferably during evening hours.

Sweat it out: Once again in favour of bodyweight management, experts recommend getting ample workouts to lower NAFLD risk even if not overweight. 20 to 40 minutes of moderate-intensity workouts five days a week can help get rid of excess liver fat and prevent its accumulation as well. For this, both cardio and resistance training can prove helpful.  

Practice abstinence from unhealthy foods and refined sugars: Processed foods that contain saturated fats and simple carbs raise blood sugar levels and result in fat accumulation as well. And ironically, fat accumulation in the liver can happen too fast when one includes too many sugary drinks and desserts in the diet.
