The normal treatment for fatty liver disease, whether it's alcohol-related or not, is to work toward a healthy weight through diet and exercise. Things you're likely to see on the table that you should reach for include: Fish ,Fruits,Grains,Nuts,Olive oil,Vegetables The Right Fats Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish, fish oil, vegetable oils, nuts (especially walnuts), flaxseeds and flaxseed oil, and leafy veggies. Monounsaturated fats are plentiful in plant sources, like olives, nuts, and avocados. Steer clear (avoid)of saturated fats, though. Eat less meat and fewer dairy products. Avoid baked goods and fried foods made with palm or coconut oils. Raw garlic may improve insulin resistance and help your body break down fats. Green tea, in experimental models, lowered weight gain, body fat levels, insulin resistance, and more. But it hasn't been tested in people yet. Goji berry (wolfberry), a plant often used in Chinese medicine, may slim your waist size. Resveratrol, which comes from the skin of red grapes, can help control inflammation. Conflicting studies suggest its effectiveness is related to how much you take. Selenium is a mineral found in Brazil nuts, tuna, and oysters. (Most people get enough in their diet.) Choose Your Carbs Complex carbohydrates, such as those with a lot of fiber, are safer Alcohol You shouldn't drink at all now if your fatty liver disease was caused by heavy drinking. It can lead to even more serious liver damage. If you have NAFLD, it's probably okay to have a drink once in a while, but not more than every other month.
