Regenerating liver and Fasting
Many people have a fatty liver and they don’t even know unless they do a test like an Ultrasound, cat scan, or MRI.
If you have a hanging belly stomach then chances are you have a fatty liver.
If you do prolonged intermittent fasting for more than 20 hours, your body going to deplete your glycogen reserve so in a very short period of time there’s no stored sugar in the liver and muscle.
When there is no glycogen left in your body then your body starts using fat as energy. So if you have fatty liver then you are actually reversing fatty liver by releasing the fat from the liver and using that as energy,
This can also reduce your enlarged liver because you’re releasing fat as well as inflammation it’s coming down because one of the things that fasting will do is gets rid of inflammation if your liver enzymes are elevated, fasting could greatly help you because it gives the liver and the immune system a chance to reset and heal and you can also improve fibrosis at scar tissue or even cirrhosis because you’re decreasing the inflammation and you’re also stimulating something called a tapa G
