New Delhi : Nutrition experts from the University of Illinois at Chicago looked at 80 people with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and found that those who exercised and followed an alternate-day fasting diet were able to improve their health. Researchers who exercised and alternated feast and fast days--eating without restriction one day and 500 calories or less the next--reported improved insulin sensitivity and decreased levels of liver fat, weight, and ALT, or alanine transaminase enzymes, which are indicators of liver disease--over a period of three months. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a build-up of fat and inflammation in patients who drink little to no alcohol.
