In brief: Moderation

A generally healthy diet is most important.
Unless a specific genetic disease is present, most recipients should try to follow an overall moderate diet that is not typically american and not too rich in carbohydrates and fats. But with a new, healthy liver, there are no specific restrictions.

In brief: Well nourished

There are no absolute guidelines, assuming the liver is working well.
. The recipient should keep well nourished, fit, and active. Restricting salt and saturated fat are advisable, along with good blood pressure control. Keep bmi ranges close to 25 kg/m2.
