Be Nice to Your Liver – Eat Yogurt

Yogurt improves insulin resistance and liver fat in obese women with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome: a randomized controlled trial

Conclusions

Yogurt was better than milk at ameliorating IR and liver fat in obese Chinese women with NAFLD and MetS, possibly by improving lipid metabolism, reducing inflammation, oxidative stress, and LPS, and changing the gut microbiota composition. This trial was registered at www.chictr.org.cn as ChiCTR-IPR-15006801.

I Am an Expert in Weight Loss

How do you think that well-known experts became recognized as experts? They focused on something that was interesting to them; they mastered the literature; and they develop their own experience so that they could make their own contribution.

New study shows dietary self-monitoring takes less than 15 minutes a day

Dietary self-monitoring is the best predictor of weight-loss success. But the practice is viewed as so unpleasant and time-consuming, many would-be weight-losers won’t adopt it. New research shows for the first time how little time it actually takes: 14.6 minutes per day on average. The frequency of monitoring, not the time spent on the process, was the key factor for those in the study who successfully lost weight.

I continuously self-monitor using estimates of calories in my head.  I have used online resources in the past which were useful.
