    Excellent explanation. At last I´m convinced that sodas are not good for my liver and for my health in general. At last I understood that sugar instead of fat is what makes my liver fatty. Very clarifying. Thanks a lot Doctor.

      no it isn’t….and you shouldn’t dismiss something that you have no clue or don’t have…so why don’t you just keep your pathetic comments to yourself.

      grains and sugars will kill you if you don’t cut them out. I lived on that crap for over a decade, and I’ve only known the truth – that low carb is the real way to go – for about a year. You say its scare mongering? good, we need to get motivated to get healthy and learn the truth about fat and sugar and which one Truly makes us sick

    quitting soda would be the greatest cure

    Hope you make a HOUSECALL about my question, being:
    If one has a leaky gut, in a rather severe state, and things leak trough the intestinal wall into the bloodstream. I know these can cause auto-imune reactions… But, i wonder, if you develop surtain auto-immuunresponse to, for example, blueberries… Does the auto-immune response go away again after you stop eating the foods that are causing the leaky gut. Because, i believe, that once you made anti-bodies against something, you will always have these on the “watch-out”…  Or can i re-integrate the berries again, once my leaky gut is healed (i know it takes months 😉 )How about that ??
    I think this will be very interesting for a lot of people.
    Thanks doc ! I love you !

    Mine was caused by long term high dose Prednisone usage. NOT always caused by sugar and flour.

    +Susannah Fullerton The complications result from 1) loss of liver cells and their ability to perform their normal functions, and 2) blockage of the flow of blood from the intestines through the scarred liver.

      No just don’t buy it. You are correct, it is cruel. So are all the small animals maimed and killed in machinery when they harvest the vegetarian meal plans. Our ancestors were not vegans, and we are all here. Go figure

      … animals were not harvested then for meat on an industrial scale as it is today. Our ancestors probably would have died of starvation had they not eaten animals…would we today?

      No but we would have a fatty liver and poor health

      Fatty liver is from sugar, not meat or fat.

    Here we go agian with the “LEAN protein like Chicken & Fish”
    The “low fat” theory is exhausted & WRONG 🙂
    Saturated animal fats are GOOD for you,… Cholesterol is ESSENTIAL,… Your Liver switches out it’s fat layers about every 8 weeks 😉

      David Yummus what’s really strange to me is you made this comment 2 years ago. Yet still today everyone still goes by the over 40 year old guidelines. Every single health organization still says to eat a low fat diet with most calories from grains and to keep saturated fat and cholesterol to a minimum. High fructose corn syrup is okay but God forbid you eat eggs or butter

      I’ve been grains free , potato free and fruit free on a LCHF diet awesome weight loss . Eat bacon lose weight !

      Thales Nemo there’s no denying the benefits of LCHF. I don’t ever count calories. Just eat til I’m full. Do that on any other diet I’d just gain weight.

      “Everyone” does not go by the guidelines, thankfully , that ended up with the mess you’re in. Plenty of smart low carb Doctors like this one about and treating their patients with a high fat diet , lower carb. Smart people know the inflammation causes heart disease , hell even cardiologists know this….. a part from the vegan ones who cherry pick data

    I was diagnosed with n.a.s.h. a few years ago. Gave up sugar and most carbs. Started eating organic and my levels are now perfect. Unbelievable how much sugar I was eating without realizing.

      Audrey M that was nice of you to answer everyone’s questions. I’ve read so many times to stay away from cheese. Also I agree with mama bear to please don’t rely on blood numbers alone.

      Sounds very similar to me. I have a fatty liver and no gallbladder, so because of the fatty liver, I have a bile deficiency. But what really sucks is I have gastritis too. I noticed anytime I ate foods with fat, I would get acid indigestion and with gastritis, it’s quite painful. Tums normally gets the job done despite already being on a PPI. I changed my diet, sugars are very low, no HFCS, plenty of water, carbs are still kinda high about 150g a day, but mostly complex carbs, because I need the calories. I’ve already dropped 30 pounds since my surgery and really don’t want to lose any more weight. I take milk thistle and vitamin E as well. Hopefully this low sugar/carb diet with some healthy fats and lean meats and veggies will get the job done. I’m assuming, once the fatty liver heals, my liver will start to produce normal thin bile and enough of it rather than this thick sludge that doesn’t properly digest fats and absorb nutrients. Hoping during this diet heals my gastritis as well. Tired of the pain and feeling blah all the time. My quality of life has really taken a hit these last four months.

    Thank you for sharing. You made my day with this info. video. I was so unaware of fatty liver. I am going to start exercising more and cutting out the starches, and I’ve already practically eliminated sodas from my diet, even bottled juices because they can be tricky and full of sugar too. My brother stopped sodas and sugars 9 years ago, he said, and he looks younger than me and he’s 5 years older than me lol. I was like, ” Wow! You look great!” Beginning Monday, I will be trying the kale and frozen fruit blend, once a day, to see what happens after a year. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are the Best!

    Dr Hyman I don’t eat any HFCS or drink sodas. I have a perfect diet. I have, in fact, finally gotten off of levothyroxin and my thyroid has healed after 8 years. I have seen my doctor every three months. The only thing different I’ve done in the last 3 mos is followed your advice to add resistant starch to my diet. Well I’ve gotten off my thyroid meds but t
    he doctor said I had very high liver enzymes and very high cholesterol, which equals “fatty liver.” I do not eat sweets. I use stevia. I don’t do grains. I eat local farm eggs, grass fed beef, fish, chicken, but only 4-5 oz a day of any protein. I eat organic produce. My new health issue has to be the result of your suggestion to use Resistant unmodified Potato Starch!


    1. // Reply

      I would stay away from starch as much as possible. Only eat in small amount, such as potato or sweet potato. Wheat grains is a BIG no no for fatty liver.
      Eat more fat in place of carb. And exercise!

      Meat does not cause fatty liver!

      Yet vegans consistently have the only healthy BMI, lowest rates of diabetes and fatty liver disease.


    4. // Reply

      alleswaszahlt1 and make sure your stevia is just stevia. Lots of stevia you buy from store has fake sugars in them which is toxic to liver. When I drink my beloved diet Dr Pepper my liver swells.

      So do meat eaters when not eating processed foods. I have met fat vegans also..too much processed crap and sugar. French eat more animal products than us British and triple the amount of cheese and they are slim! only 2% overweight. They eat real food as do i

    Can you reverse fatty liver?


    1. // Reply

      Of course. Cut back on sugar and starchy carb food. In fact treatment for Fatty liver is exactly the same as Diabetes type 2. Eat more leafy greens and fat.

    This is good info, but it’s just scratching the surface of the fatty liver solution. In the 1950’s the Mayo Clinic discovered a link between choline deficiency and fatty liver. In fact it was the Mayo Clinic who first coined the term steatosis, which is fatty liver. I know a 72 year old man who was a bodybuilder all his life. He cycled steroids on and off from his 20’s into his 40’s and told me that after a cycle, he would take 3000 mg of choline and inositol for 30 days. After his 30 day “cleaning out” his blood work would return to normal. Also, make sure to eat plenty of raw green leafy vegetables. It is also recommended by many doctors that while dieting to lose fatty liver, to not exceed more than 10% of your body weight in a 6 month period. I am not a doctor, I’m merely sharing some good info. I very strongly recommend doing your own research and consulting with your own doctor before following my or anyone’s advice.
