In April, before I started eating whole, plant-based foods, my doctor called to tell me my AST (Aspartate Aminotransferase) and ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase) liver enzyme levels were elevated. They said it was probably related to a fatty liver, which didn’t sound good. I was a little scared about it. I started eating healthy in August. My October numbers were better, but were still high. Today I got my January test results, and they’re all normal!
Woo hoo! In less than 6 months of plant-based eating, I’ve lost 18 kg, and fixed my fatty liver. (Ok, I wasn’t actually diagnosed with fatty liver, but I probably would have developed one on my old fast-food diet.)
