    hi all,

    new to the forum, although been on the diet for 4 weeks. extremely over the moon with results and generally how much healthier I’m feeling. I started the diet as I was advised by my doctor I have fatty liver and hopefully weight loss would help rectify.

    I just wondered if any other people on here have managed to reverse/improve it on this diet?

    Hi Lee.j09
    Plenty of success stories on here if you check out the various Forum posts.
    captainlynne has lost loads of weight. Lucia’s thread is really funny and inspiring at the same time.
    Many people on the Forum have reduced their Diabetic or Blood Pressure medication.
    Stories where the Medical profession have been rather surprised by the numbers recorded on their tests.
    Generally everyone is reporting that they are feeling fitter and healthier.
    Personally my Hbac1 is now in the normal range and have reduced my Metformin from 4 a day to none at all.
    Blood pressure is vastly improved too and have reduced my medication here too.

    Good luck with the diet. Welcome.

    Hello I too have fatty liver and want to start the BSD at 800 calls per day for 8 weeks. I’m going to get my holiday out the way first then really put my mind to it.

    Hi Lee, I don’t have a fatty liver as such but my triglycerides are always sky high. My doctor tried to coax out of me that I might be an alcoholic but I’m not although I don’t mind a few drinks. After 6 weeks on this diet my triglycerides are way down as is my cholesterol and blood glucose. This diet seems to do a lot of good to the body in general.

    Hi
    It wasn’t checked immediately before I started BSD, but blood tests identified I had a ‘fatty liver’ last year, and it was still a problem earlier this year (I think it had got worse). I had liver and HBa1c tests done about six weeks in, and whatever they measure in the liver was completely normal.
    I had another set of bloods done today, so will get the results at the start of September.

    I’ve just got in so haven’t set it up yet, but finally got login details this afternoon to access my medical records on line – all the numbers I can never remember as soon as I leave the surgery!

    Had my second set of test results, massive improvement from the first. It all seems to be working!

    The good thing about fatty liver is that is completely reversible.

    Lee is doing amazing! Keep it up! Cleaning up my pancreas and liver from my nasty eating habits is one reason to do all this.
    Sometimes it feels like the last night of the world! But, no matter if you fall off the wagon the diet is there to jump right on again.

    I was reading Playbill (No, not Playboy) and Miss Saigon is coming back to NYC in the Spring! I read it only for the articles! Anyways, keep up the success. Back to Penn and Teller!

    Live Long And Prosper!

    To any one who’s interested on how the diet can improve fatty liver.

    I had an ultra sound last Friday, rang the doctors for result appointment and they said I don’t need an appointment and my liver is showing no signs of fatty liver. That’s after 6 weeks.

    This is wonderful news for you, Lee – and holds out hope for other people following the BSD.

    OH has now had two liver ablations and his time on the BSD has reduced his blood sugar so he is off Metformin. He’s now on maintenance but keeping carbs low and I know is hoping that this way of eating is also helping his liver. There is some evidence that low carb helps prevent tumours growing.

    So pleased for you, you must be thrilled – and you’ve not done the whole 8 weeks yet! 🙂

    AMAZING! you give hope to the hopeless!

    Actually, Gael Monfils winning today only 15 minutes ago is a great sign of hope! Not been in Semi Finals at US Open in 6 years! What happens tonight, Tsonga or Djokavich will be his opponent! Tough!

    Well, Lee there are 4 words of wisdom you followed well:

    LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!

    Cheers,

    Hi I too have the fatty liver problem as well as high blood pressure cholesterol and type 2 diabetes….I started the 8wbs in May and was going well until taking holidays. I found it difficult to forego the three or four beers after work each day which I have been doing for the past 40 years or so and so they were virtually eliminating the good work the low cal diet was doing. BUT I’m back….this time without the beers….and with more exercise involved….89kgs… 63 years age …. We will see how I go this time

    I know the pain and suffering in giving up beer or barley/rye/wheat infested whiskey, especially Bourbon here in US. I have sipping wine like a spaniard occasionally.

    Remember, you are 63 years YOUNG!

    Live Long And Prosper!

    Hi all,
    Starting the BSD today and have fatty liver (since 2012). Have tried various low fat diets recommended by dietitian etc. to no avail! My friends lost heaps of weight doing this. Anyone had Ny complications with FL from losing weight quickly!? My doctor and a liver specialist I used to see both said don’t lose weight too quickly as it can aggravate your fatty liver. Thoughts.?
