The liver plays a key role in the functioning of the whole body. Therefore, it is good to ensure its proper nutrition.

LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT HEALTHY EATING HABITS

The liver likes easily digestible foods that contain little fat. Healthy liver diet should be high in protein and rich in B-complex vitamins. The prepared meals should be fresh and varied. (2) Do not force yourself to eat foods you do not like.

Golden Rules of Healthy Liver Diet:

When to eat?

  • Eat 5-6 small meals during the day.
  • Try to eat in a relaxed, stress-free atmosphere.

How to eat? (1)

  • Avoid fried dishes and stews with fatty sauces.
  • Prepare meals using healthy culinary techniques, such as cooking, steaming or grilling and stir-frying without added fat.

WHAT FOODS AND DRINKS SHOULD BE CONSUMED IN LARGER QUANTITIES?

WHAT FOODS AND DRINKS SHOULD BE CONSUMED IN SMALLER QUANTITIES?

WHAT TO EAT OR DRINK IN SMALLER QUANTITIES?

Fibre is a general term for plant polysaccharides and lignins, which form an indigestible food component. The liver diet basically assumes a reduction in fibre intake because it causes bloating and worsens gastrointestinal symptoms.

Therefore, foods such as whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, whole wheat groats and cruciferous vegetables are not recommended in the liver diet. The exception is fat accumulation in the liver: increased fibre consumption in this condition may contribute to the treatment of obesity, which is a risk factor in patients with fat accumulates ion in the liver.
