In fact, long-term vegetarianism will lead to malnutrition. Malnutrition and over nutrition will lead to fatty liver, which also endangers health. If we do not pay attention to it, it will develop into liver cirrhosis and even liver cancer.

  1. Why do vegetarians get fatty liver?

Fruits contain a lot of fructose: fructose is metabolized by the liver after ingestion. If too much fructose is not metabolized by the liver in time, it will also be converted into fat and accumulated in the liver.

Protein deficiency affects liver function: liver function needs high quality protein as fuel. If you do not eat meat for a long time, the imbalance of protein and amino acids in the body will cause the liver to transport fat, and the accumulated fat can not be transferred out smoothly, but lead to dystrophic fatty liver.

Excessive carbohydrate intake: vegetarians are more likely to be hungry than those who eat a big meal. The digestive system will stimulate the body to eat more white rice, bread, desserts and other carbohydrates to increase the sense of satiety. Carbohydrate is also an important source of free fatty acids in liver cells. If the intake is too much, more than the daily needs of the human body, liver cells will convert it into fat and store it in the liver, thus forming a high calorie fatty liver.

  1. How can vegetarians prevent fatty liver?

Pay attention to get high quality protein and fat from food. Can enhance the sense of fullness. Ovalbumin can rely on eggs and milk to supplement high-quality protein, strict vegetarians can rely on more intake of soybean and soybean products to supplement high-quality protein.
