Title: Fatty Liver - don't lose the gut too fast.
Post by: Matt Emery on June 27, 2008, 10:37:00 AM
Fatty Liver Disease (FLD) has hit the news lately - which is no surprise really, given the prevalence of diabetes and obesity - and it's worth noting that FLD can be induced by rapid weight loss.

Those who have switched to a Paleo/Caveman style of eating have probably found that rapid weight loss occurs rather easily, so here's a friendly reminder to avoid rushing things.  It's exciting to lose weight and feel fit and healthy, but don't go overboard and stress your body out too much.. follow the guidelines, take it easy and enjoy the process.

Eating like a Palaeolithic person is the healthiest way of life that I know of, but if you're coming from a diet high in refined foods it's wise to avoid jumping in the deep end.  Take your time, listen to your body, and work your way there.

Yeah, I'm sorry, Matt but after a week or so my body wasn't having any of your diet proposal. Although it seemed to me more psychological. I would lose interest in fruits and nuts and just not eat anything until my feast time, which kept getting earlier and earlier. I think it would be better for me to just cut out one f00d group at a time, starting with sugar.

Yep, that sounds like an excellent approach.  I substitute Olive Oil for sugar when the need arises i.e. smother it on all my food, rather than having dessert or bread.

Good luck mate.  Would love to know how you progress.
