Fatty liver disease diet: Key foods you should eat to slash risk – and the ones to avoid

109

Fatty liver disease can impact people for a number of reasons. Although alcohol commonly comes to mind when people think of the condition, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) can occur as a result of diet or hereditary factors.

In general, a good diet for fatty liver disease will include foods such as:

  • Fruits and vegetables, especially those high in potassium.
    Potassium can be found in vegetables such as broccoli, peas and sweet potatoes.
  • It can be found in fruits such as bananas, apricots and kiwis.

Foods that should be avoided include:

  • High sugar foods such as sweets, cakes, biscuits and sweet pastries.
  • High salt foods such as smoked, cured, salted or canned meat, fish or poultry, frozen breaded meats and dinners, salted nuts, and canned beans with added salt.
  • Refined carbohydrates such as white bread, white rice, pastries, sodas and sugary breakfast cereals.
  • People with NAFLD are also advised to eliminate alcohol from their diet.
