Eating any high-fat meal could hurt your liver.


And you thought it was beer that could hurt your liver. Pizza can do it, too. Eating any high-fat meal--from a cheeseburger and fries to a pepperoni pizza with extra cheese--disrupts liver function, HealthDay News reports of research from Germany. And over time the rapid effect of "fat loading" could contribute to fatty liver disease. What foods are most likely to damage the liver? Butter, fatty cheeses and coconut oil lead the list, followed by fatty beef, lamb, pork, poultry with the skin, cream and other dairy products made from whole or reduced-fat (2 percent) milk. There is good news. Healthy people can overcome the effects of fat loading -- in just a few days -- by changing their diet. Instead of bingeing on foods with saturated fats, eat fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, poultry (without the skin), fish and nuts. Limit red meat and sugary foods and beverages.
