Include cultured dairy products into your daily food intake.

As always: drink plenty of water (at least 8-10 cups a day). It is best to drink water in between your meals and choose good quality spring water for this purpose.
Eat small frequent meals. Usually it is best to have 5 meals a day with 3 larger meals such as breakfast lunch and dinner and 2 smaller ones (as we called them – snacks). Of course you should adjust this rule to your personal lifestyle. Just make sure you have at least 4 meals a day.
Fatty liver disease can be caused by parasites as a result of bad quality foods and poor personal hygiene. Make sure all animal products that you consume are clean and hygienic. Thoroughly wash your fruits, vegetables before you eat them. Avoid eating raw chicken eggs, and uncooked meats.
Alcohol is perhaps the biggest liver enemy – it permanently destroys liver cells and frequent alcohol intake may lead to very serious liver conditions. Try avoiding alcohol.
