New Study Further Highlights the Benefits of the Israeli Mediterranean Diet on Liver Fat
Already widely-regarded as the World’s Healthiest Diet, the far-reaching benefits of the Israeli Mediterranean Diet are being further researched all over the world. In a new study conducted by the Journal of Hepatology of the US National Library of Medicine, the diet is now being credited with reducing liver fat and many negative health risks associated with obesity and NAFLD, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
According to researchers, the low-carb Israeli Mediterranean diet is more effective than other low-fat diets in reducing hepatic (liver) fat content. NAFLD is a chronic condition which affects between 30 and 40% of all American adults and is a known link to type-2 diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and abnormal blood lipid levels – a potential link to cancer.
That means that not only can the Israeli Mediterranean Diet help prevent obesity and lower your weight, but it can prevent a myriad of potentially health-wrecking medical conditions. So not only is the diet delicious and diverse, but it also helps prevent many of the issues faced by humans eating in processed foods-rich countries.
The Israeli Mediterranean Diet is a style of eating rich in olive oil, healthy nuts and fresh vegetables, along with seeds, seafood, fiber and fresh vegetables.
The study, researchers hope, will shed significant new light on understanding the correlation between weight loss as it pertains to disease prevention. As of now, scientists believe that the Israeli Mediterranean Diet could not only be used to address weight loss but as a specific means of managing NAFLD.
