Tips for a successful liver cleanse
Keep liver-friendly snacks on hand, ready to eat. You might have carrot sticks, fresh apple slices or a similar snack. The main thing is to have your snacks at hand, so that you'll be less likely to cheat on your diet by eating something you shouldn't.
Drink plenty of water. Besides helping to flush the toxins from your liver, it also makes you feel full so that it is easier to diet.
Eat a diet high in fiber. This acts as a scrubber for your digestive system, which is healthy; as well as increases your feeling of fullness.
There are those who swear by a juicing liver cleanse and others who vow that a low fat diet with plenty of olive oil will help heal your fatty liver. Ultimately, this decision will be up to you.
That being said, extreme diets such as all juice are extremely hard to maintain and stick to long enough to be effective. So, you may want to go with a less dramatic but more easily accomplished diet.
Here are some daily menu suggestions if you have fatty liver disease:
Breakfast stick with skim milk, whole grain toast with a bit of non-hydrogenated margarine, oats or oat cereal and fresh citrus juices. You can also have fresh fruit such as a banana or grapefruit. Plain yogurt with granola and berries is also a great choice. Have a cup of coffee some latest research suggests this has a beneficial effect on the liver.
Lunch you'll want to go with whole grain breads and white meats (chicken or turkey) for sandwiches. Avoid cheese or heavily marbled meats such as corned beef. Vary it, so that if you had toast for breakfast, don't have a sandwich for lunch. Home-made vegetable soup or a clear consomm is also good. You can have tossed salads, but use vinegar-based dressings simple balsamic vinegar is best, as there is no added sugar. Dessert can be a nice piece of fresh fruit. Drink water with a twist of lemon juice.
Snacks salt-free nuts, carrot sticks, celery with natural peanut butter, fresh fruit, quality dark chocolate, graham crackers.
Dinner dinner can be a larger meal, but don't go overboard. Stick with low fat meats or fish. If you bake chicken, don't leave the skin on. Ditto for fish. Almost any veggies are fine, as long as they're steamed, baked or roasted and not fried. A dinner roll is okay, but use whole wheat or whole grain. A potato as a side dish is fine a few days a week. Drink water or skim milk with your meal. Dessert might be a fresh piece of fruit, sugar free jello and fat free whipped topping.
Leave off the rich meat sauces or gravies. Don't eat cakes and cookies made with refined flours and sugar. Eat more foods that are good for cleansing the liver.
You can vary your diet from day to day so you can be more comfortable sticking with it for weeks or months without eating the same foods over and over again. The idea is eating both in moderation and in smaller serving sizes to help you lose weight and not overtax your liver.
Remember these tips when on your liver diet:
Choose foods low in fat
Eat meals low in salt
Eat more fruit and vegetables
Avoid fast food
Avoid processed foods, soft drinks, and snacks high in sugar or salt.
