Agree with Dr. B: It is imperative that you lose weight to address fatty liver.
Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.

Fatty liver : Fatty liver often is a result of high-calorie diets, excess alcohol use, obesity, medications, poor sugar control. I agree with losing weight as an essential treatment in most cases. Abnormal thyroid levels can contribute to fatty liver. There are other conditions to consider which are less common, hepatitis (viral and autoimmune), and inherited metabolic problems
