Reduce Your Liver Fat by 50 Percent in 14 Days

Reduce your liver fat by 50% in 14 days

Reduce your liver fat by 50% in 14 days

This is a very interesting topic .

I found a study that demonstrated that you can actually reduce your liver fat by almost 50% in just 2 weeks .

And I’m not kidding .

This is not a joke .

This is a credible study .

There was a 14 day intervention study putting people on a carbohydrate restrictive diet .

This is called the ketogenic diet , where they consumed less than 30 grams of carbohydrates per day and this demonstrated decreased liver fat by 43.8 percent .

So it’s not actually 50% , but it’s close in subjects with obesity and NAFLD .

What is that ?

Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease .

Now , there are several other interesting things about this .

Number 1 , there wasn’t much weight loss 

On average , there was only like a 1.8%

weight loss

Study breakdown

weight loss , which is pretty insignificant , and there is no change in waist circumference .

Now this is very good information to know because if you start a ketogenic diet and you lost hardly any weight the 1st week and there’s no change in your waist , you might just quit and think it’s not working .

Apparently , the body gets rid of liver fat and organ fat as a priority before it goes after other types of fat .

And apparently , the loss of liver fat was due to decreased something called de novo lipogenesis .

What is that ?

That means there’s a greatly reduced conversion from carbohydrates to fat .

There’s like a 79.8% decrease .

So no longer are we getting this conversion from carbohydrates to fat .

And there was also an increase in actual overall fat burning , called it fatty acid oxidation , by just under 5x .

So we had this 5 times greater fat oxidation or fat burning effect in the liver .

Amazing .

Other interesting study results

I found an interesting intervention study that showed that obese patients were able to decrease their liver fat by 43.8% in just two weeks. How?

The participants were limited to less than 30 carbs per day—that’s the keto diet.

There were some interesting things that happened in the study:

1. Only 1.8% weight loss

2. No change in waist size

3. Decreased carb to fat conversion by 79.8%

4. Increase fat burning (fatty acid oxidation)

This tells us that the keto diet starts working internally first before you start to see results on your waistline. Your body starts burning liver fat before it starts burning belly fat.

Many people stop doing keto after a week or two because they don’t see immediate results. That’s a mistake because it can take weeks or months to become fully keto-adapted.

Here are some more interesting facts about this study:

• Did not lower calories (avg. 3115 calories per day)

• Significantly lower marker for liver damage

• Significantly lower fasting insulin levels + HOMA-IR

• Improved insulin sensitivity

• Lowered liver inflammation

• Rapid increase in folate (producing bacteria + blood folate)

• 94 bacterial strains were altered (major shifts in just one day)

Now there’s some also very interesting additional things on this study .

First of all , the participants did not lower their calories .

The average amount of calories per day was over 3,000 .

So this was not a globe calorie diet .

There was also significant lower markers for liver damage , significant lower fasting insulin levels and lowered HOMA IR , which means there was less insulin resistance , there was improved insulin sensitivity , there was lowered liver inflammation , and there was a rapid increase in folate producing bacteria and folate in their blood .

So apparently in the ketogenic diet , your microbes make more folate .

Now what is up with this folate ?

What does the folate do in relationship to your liver ?

Well , it improves liver fat metabolism and it keeps liver inflammation on the low side .

And they found 94 bacterial strains were altered after going on this low carb diet with major shifts in microbes occurring just in one day .
