Fatty liver vs. fat: Fatty liver is not the same as having tummy fat. Fat cells replaced liver ells that died from alcohol toxicity. The fat cells just take up space. Congratulations on giving up alcohol. Getting out of the trap of addiction takes courage and strength. Now you are turning that strength toward a healthy lifestyle. That's great. To lose weight, avoid high fat foods, fried foods, starches and sugar.
