The Liver Reboot Plan

Turn a fatty liver into a skinny liver.

The Liver Reboot Plan

Nearly 80 million people are affected by fatty liver disease, a hidden epidemic that’s often asymptomatic. Since fatty liver disease can be silent until an issue arises, it’s important to recognize the risk factors for this condition. People who are overweight, those who consume a high sugar diet, or individuals with diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol are all at an elevated risk. Before fatty liver disease becomes a problem, follow this expert plan from registered dietitian Kristin Kirkpatrick to help rehab and repair your liver and body.

Beets are a source of choline, a nutrient that helps metabolize fat, assist muscle movement, and improve sleep. The liver is the main organ that metabolizes choline and individuals with diets low in choline may develop fatty liver disease. A simple way to eat more beets is to snack on beet chips instead of potato chips.
