In brief: Modify lifestyle

Fatty liver occurs thru delivery of dietary fat/fatty acids to liver, excess carbohydrate, impaired export of triglyceride from liver cells, & augmented trigylceride production.
Fix it by controlling diabetes, obesity, cholesterol, & avoid alcohol. Gallstones (usually cholesterol) are less diet responsive, but low fiber, high refined carbohydrate diets are associated; vegetarians get fewer stones.
