Guidelines For The Fatty Liver Diet
Go For Complex Carbohydrates
Patients who need to lose weight are typically advised to go for complex carbohydrates instead of choosing simple carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates help patients feel satiated for much longer than simple (refined) carbohydrates, and they also provide beneficial minerals, vitamins, and fiber. By contrast, refined carbohydrates have little nutritional content, and they can be very caloric. Simple carbohydrates include items such as sweets, baked goods, and sugar-sweetened beverages and breakfast cereals. Examples of complex carbohydrates include whole grains such as brown rice, whole wheat bread, and oatmeal. Beans, nuts, and vegetables such as sweet potatoes are also sources of complex carbohydrates. Cooking at home instead of eating fast food can help patients eat more complex carbohydrates..
