Thanks so much for watching. It was such a pleasure to have Dr. Megan Gray on the show. What did you guys think?
Lies: review The European Journal of Preventive Cardiology on saturated fats and start telling the truth for once.
That was such an outstanding info packed interview. She is wonderful backing up what she says with science. Thank you so much. For the Turmeric try taking with 1/3 (unsweetened home made) almond milk 2/3 water with a dash of of fine black pepper and a dash of ground pepper and a 1/4 teaspoon of EV olive oil which may help with the absorption issue.
Caffeine is a drug it has no place in the human body, caffeine is very damaging to the liver and blood cells. Must avoid the poisonous coffee fix .
I have a new found respect for you both as doctors, next to pastors who truly are pointing people to JESUS you are doing the same thing. No man can enter into life eternal after willfully destroying their body temple. Thank you so much for this talk. May people hear your care for them. We were never designed to eat meat or borrow anyone's organs.
You get dr Joe Furnham on your show!
I have been eating a low fat, vegan diet for 6 months. My blood glucose went very high. I am suspecting hepatic insulin resistance. What do you think?
This doesn’t make any sense for me. I’m thin, no diabetes, exercise, eat well and have fatty liver with elevated liver enzymes. I don’t have any weight to lose.😢
Would buying a glucose monitor help? I’m not overweight and have a healthy bmi. I’m exercising, eating correctly and am not losing weight. I feel like I might have a blood sugar issue that is being missed.
I have nafld but am severely UNDERweight. What do I do?
that was pretty good!!!! eat a plant!!!
The terrible bias here is that the answer is complex plant carbohydrates, regardless of the question, regardless of the evidence that a well formulated ketogenic diet including fatty meat is good for metabolic health. WHAT, that can't be! It interferes with what we already "know".
To make statements like "we know that saturated fat causes fatty liver" is a completely unsubstantiated statement.
Get off your dogma and study the real science without prejudice.
Now I have all kinds of questions. Like doe Milk Thistle have any effect on a fatter liver? Also does intermittent fasting help? Does drinking lots of water help?
Hmm I am confused I thought I was told that Choline can help pull the fat out of the liver. You mentioned it about 20 minutes in and made it sound like a bad thing. So maybe I am not understanding something.
I just recently found out that I have a little bit of fat in my liver but I've had high liver enzymes for about 4 years now but I also have osteoporosis that I'm treating naturally I'm going the natural way, when I go grocery shopping I used to only focus on bone strengthening foods but now that I know I have this fat in my liver I know I need to focus on liver healthy foods as well
How do I find a balance between eating for my bone health and eating to lower fatty liver??
Thank you for this video I’ve been having to push my doctor because I just feel very uncomfortable in my abdomen no major signs but my family everybody in my family has heart disease diabetes kidney issues and I’ve been trying to eat clean whole food plant-based for 17 years and I am still not feeling comfortable and still considered obese ain’t no processed food And I feel miserable I exercise daily and I can’t seem to lose the weight and my doctors don’t find anything wrong with me so I finally insisted and asked for an abdominal scan and that’s where they found Nash it would’ve gone and diagnosed if I wasn’t so adamant because of my eating style I didn’t show any issues with diabetes or heart disease but my body fat BMI is 36 and my sister has had a gastric bypass and has heart disease and everybody on my dad side died of heart disease so when I had to give my grandmother her insulin needle when I was a kid I realize whatever they were eating or doing I didn’t wanna be sick like that so I’ve always been on a journey to figure this out 17 years ago I had an 8 pound fibroid attached to my uterus nobody picked up on anything except the doctor asked me if I was an alcoholic as my liver was smashed flat and then she just said it was probably the 8 pound five by pushing against it and that was the last time I had any discussions about liver so I asked for a referral to mayo clinic in Jacksonville looking forward to an appointment but this is interesting because I’ve been doing whole food plant-based trying to stay lower carb trying to make sure I’m getting the right balance and I’m still having so much discomfort in my abdomen
Will forever be grateful to Dr Igudia on YouTube who cured my type 2 Diabetes disease with his herbs supplements . I will forever tell the world about your great medication doc.
Meeting Dr Igudia YouTube channel was the beginning of a new life for me after using his herbs medication in curing my Hepatitis B completely
Dr Igudia on YouTube cured my genital herpes (HSV2) with his natural herbs supplements which I ordered from him after seeing a lot of reviews from different people and I’m very grateful to have come in contact with him.
Would you say the low carb,or meterrain diet is best for fatty liver disease
I've been on Starch Solution for two months.
I lost 21 pounds. I’ve had a fatty liver for years. Bad
news is, my blood tests last week showed,
ALT, GGT, CRP, cholesterol and Alc were all
elevated and now my doctor wants me to go
low carb. I'm mad and depressed about all
this. I have an ultrasound soon to see if my
liver is worse than the previous ultrasound I
had a few years ago. Why would this diet
raise everything???? I was feeling great and
everything. Now I'm scared. I don't like low
carb either. Anyone have this happen while
on starch solution? Is it from too much fruit? I hear fruit can raise cholesterol, which is a bummer.
you mentioned keto in this video and I have been doing keto this year ever since I found out I had a fatty liver last year and I have lost 50 pounds this year I do try to eat as many good fats as I can but i do eat some bacon, by some I mean 2 maybe 4 tops. I also maintain a calorie deficit. does it really matter the kind of fat I eat if I am losing weight and I know for a fact my bmi and overall fat percentage has gone down quite a bit?in faster time then what would have otherwise happened. A major part of ketone production happens in the liver so by definition wouldnt that process stop fat storage?
All thanks and gratitude to Dr Igudia on YouTube who cured my Hepatitis B Virus with his natural herbs medication which I ordered from him. His herbs medication are indeed very effective and cures Hepatitis B Virus permanently.
All other experts seem to suggest that saturated fat is only bad if it's combined with alot of carbs/sugar. Historical data also shows the increase in NAFLD cases correlate with the increase in consumption of added sugar (though I admit it correlate even better with increased prevalence of obesity, which can be due to both sugar and fat consumption.) 🤔
This is the best interview I've heard on this subject, thank you!
I think computers are the largest contributor to NAFLD. Even more than diet, although I think both diet and exercise are necessary for a healthy life. I say this from my computer as I sit here, overweight, and with NAFLD. I'm going for a lunch hike. I'm going Green Mediterranean diet from Keto as well.
Big thanks and appreciation to Dr Igudia on YouTube who cured my type 2 Diabetes with his natural herbs medication which I order from him. His herbs medication are indeed very effective in curing Diabetes disease . And I also encourage anyone who is going through any difficulties in health to contact him on any kind of diseases Such as Hepatitis B, HPV, Cancer, Herpes virus, STI, Diabetes, Fibroid, Yeast infection and many more. You can contact him on his YouTube channel
I want to personally thank and recommend Dr Igudia on his YouTube channel and Facebook page who cured my type 2 Diabetes with his natural herbs medication which I ordered from him and it was Indeed very effective. To my fellow Americans who also have Diabetes disease and other types of diseases such as fatty liver disease, Cancer, High blood pressure, COPD, Chronic disorder, HPV, Hepatitis B, HIV, Herpes infection and any kind of disease can contact him on his YouTube channel
what would be an optimal SGOT/AST ???
This is so confusing, there are so many differing opinions on the best diet for fatty liver disease, who is right that is the question? I have severe fatty liver disease but I only weigh 96-98lbs, so hardly in the overweight or obese category? my HBa1c is very low 32 (uk measurements) i am not able to exercise much and I rarely eat meat, or eggs so what is the right thing to do diet wise? Answers and advice would be gratefully received! Thanks in advance.
Thank you doctors! I appreciate this information so much! I was told I have very early fatty liver. Do not ever drink alcohol, eat mostly plant based diet with fish few and far between, use only whole grain foods, lots of vegetables, nuts, grains and fruits. I only use olive oil, some avocado, and coconut oils. I don’t use much sugar and cook all our foods, including bake most of my whole grain bread. I do have polysystic ovaries, and I am overweight because I had two bad accidents and can’t workout as I would love to. I am working on losing the weight and have lost some already since I have consciously cut down my carbohydrates.
Would you recommend calorie restriction to someone recovering from an eating disorder? Can fatty liver be caused by weight gain in eating disorder recovery?
thank God I was able to locate DR ADULE on YouTube who was able to eliminate my herpes virus totally with his herbal medicine from today I believe in herbal medicine💯%
Sugar and white rice was the diet Kempner used to cure fatty liver?
Are beans good for liver? And eggs?
My guts do not read lables and do not recognise the difference between simple and complex sugars/carbs, both will increase blood glucose and insuline driving the long term insuline/glucose roller coaster. To bunch fruit and vegetables into the same group and red and processed meat into another is so wrong and gives missleading results. There are no mechanisms causing sat fat consumption to cause sat fat accumulation in cells and liver. Very few people can follow a -500 kcal/day regime in the long run, much easier to scrap the carbs, they are as such not needed by any process in the human body.
Awesome interview! So glad to find your channel and this video helped me understand much more. Meeting with Dr tomorrow for my wife and will discuss her issues with high cholesterol, a1c and insulin resistance. Have you any experience with the metabolic problems in a person with Myotonic Dystrophy MD1 ?
Do you know of any whole food plant based Doctors in northeastern Illinois?
is juicing with a slow juicer as good as eating whole?
Ah, this was a helpful video to watch after just having a tense discussion with a brother that has a fatty liver, and he's a high protein keto aficionado. He gets flustered and reminds me that he has a bachelor's in animal science and made terrific grades. We don't agree on world views and he disagrees with not eating meat. Our father is prediabetic and has had high blood pressure for 20+ years. I say complex carbs aren't the problem, even some fruit, and they dismiss me completely.
I found this interview very interesting.
A decade ago, I used to have a high level of ALT(GPT) enzyme, up to 88. It went down to normal values after I started running, lost a considerable weight, and eventually switched from being vegetarian to vegan. Unfortunately, a couple of years later I stopped running, and gradually gained back the weight. But the ALT(GPT) marker stayed fine, even after 8 more years, when I was diagnosed with T2D. I wonder if it is possible that being vegan, avoiding the saturated fat in cheese, has made the difference.
Very informative and thorough interview! I learned a lot. Thank you 🙂
This was SO helpful. As a degreed nutritionist who has been diagnosed with early stage NAFLD (normal weight) and some gallbladder sludge, this really helped me. I am also against severely restrictive diets and so many in the alternative health community are promoting low carb. I have switched to a Whole Foods, plant based diet and am having lots of health improvements. I also really appreciated doctors having such a high knowledge about not putting people on yo yo diets and encouraging lifestyle changes over the long term.
Thank you for another great video – this was very informative. Question – do you know if Vitamin D can cause kidney stones (I've had too many and never again if possible!!) and if so do you recommend a level to stay below with D3 supplements? (ex. 4,000 daily is safe? I have a deficiency I'm working to fix) THANKS
Thanks for this!❤
This is most useful, thanks! I am sort of addicted to listening to plant based medical advice, and originally got my information from the likes of Mcdougall, Pritikin, Campbell and many others. I'm not quite so addicted that I go to support groups of diseases I don't have like Tyler Durden in Fight Club! =D
On the Starch Solution, fixed my cholesterol problem 4 years ago and lost 50 lb, and came off blood pressure medication with doctor supervision, and that same med was controlling resting heart rate which was previously high. All were fixed but blood pressure is a bit high at 115/83 and I need to exercise now. All the other things are fine 4 years later and I am losing more weight and getting in shape.
I'm busy working on getting some ab definition for vanity since now I can and before on the SAD diet didn't have a chance.
Thankyou Sean for introducing us to yet another great guest. What a delight this Doctor was …and so informative. I have had a few bad weeks culminating in feeling off colour for a couple of days….one day of eating wfpb and I already feel better..an object lesson for me to avoid packaged food and sugar! Thank you again for the effort you put in to these great interviews. Cheers Vikki
What a fabulous interview! I love it when a WFPB doctor interviews another WFPB doctor. You always ask the right questions. I am intrigued about the role of some medications and plant fats on fatty liver. I will have to listen to this interview a couple more times. Thank you so much for all the info and making me smarter. People have to understand how our body works and what fuel is needed for optimal health. (I also love your podcasts on "Self principal".).
