After having my gallbladder removed a few years ago I still had upper
abdominal pains so the doctor sent me for a scan. The scan revealed
that I have a fatty liver and I wanted to know what sort of diet I
should follow as I understand that a fatty liver is reversible and I'm
finding it difficult to source any recipe books on the subject.
I've started a new diet, 1400 cals a day, 50g of fat, 2 litres of water and slowly working up my exercise regime. I have also reduced my intake of wine to a few glasses at the weekend.
I look forward to your suggestions.
