    Omega 6 in excess of omega 3 = avoid and they'll probably want to normalize their tissue ratio or else it royally pwns the liver
    Fructose or more glucose than is needed by brain = avoid
    ethanol = avoid
    various poisons including grains, oxidized fats, trans fats, etc = avoid

    Consume fats, lots of palmitic acid and oleic acid. Moderate protein. Milk thistle or silymarin extract is good. Make sure to get enough nutrients.

    Hey that sounds like the PB.

    just read a few articles,from that site sandra cabot promotes lots of grains and legumes though as a part of a healthy meal, i for myself like to have Sprouted legumes like chickpeas,mung beans i think they are great and add variety and diversity,taste to salads and meals not to forget they are very filling they do not bloat me or cause discomfort but only the sprouted ones, where i live i can not find grass fed organic chicken or meat so i think its nice to add them once or twice a week into your meals.

    PB is probably pretty good. Avoid all fruit and fruit juice. Avoid sugar and sugar substitutes such as stevia and honey. Also be aware of OTC medications. I believe paracetamol is quite hard on the liver. Avoid alcohol obviously. Alcoholic and Non alcoholic fatty liver are actually the same disease, the only difference being the cause. A doctor shown a diseased liver would not be able to tell the difference between the two.

    I've read Cabot's book and I'm not sure I would recommend it. PB is better.

    milk thistle and SAM-E are two supplements that have been shown to be favorable for the liver in decent scientific studies.

    That must be quite recent research because when I surveyed a couple of years ago there was no genuine research showing any benefits from taking milk thistle. Plenty of people claiming it, but all anecdotal. Perhaps you can provide a link.

    EAT = liver; dandelion and artichokes are vegetables said to be good for the liver
    AVOID = alcohol
