Have you lost weight: The best thing you can do for yourself is to change your lifestyle.....Not just go on a "diet". I don't know what you mean by "diet foods", but i think you are craving the "non-diet" foods because you have not found food that you like which are also healthy.

This means you may need to back off a bit on your caloric restriction and/ or be mindful of the vigorousness of your exercise. Though it sounds like you are making great strides. ...Read more

I had fatty liver, how to diet?

Had or have?: Fatty liver can be big droplets of fat (macrosteatosis) - likely to respond to diet at least in the first instance for most - or small droplets (microsteatosis) caused by medications, for example.
