In this episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy break down the research on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a key component early in the overweight, obesity, and eventually diabetes processes. There was a low fat craze several decades ago, and some of the misinformation that was spread still lingers today about dietary fat leading to fatty deposits in the liver. This process is actually caused by certain sugars. They discuss effective ways to prevent and reverse NAFLD and other related outcomes.
