I have Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Deposits (verified through ultrasound and blood tests) and I was hoping that the paleo diet would help reverse the issue.
First some background: I have IBS, Low T, Gluten Sensitivity, NAFLD, gall bladder polyps, and renal cysts. My weight before starting paleo peaked around 265 lbs.
I've always had trouble losing fat even though I exercise vigorously 4-6 days a week. I've been on Testim for two years, which, although making me feel better, hasn't helped my ability to burn fat.
On January 3rd, I started researching and eating a paleo diet. I use Fitday.com to help stay on track. I think it's my tenth week and I've lost about 15 lbs. My first concern was weight loss, but I understand now the importance and healthful benefit of avoiding grains and sugars.
My cholesterol is 207, Triglycerides are 98 and HDL is 46. LDL is 141. My ALT is 60. My endocrinologist is not overly concerned, but I'm wondering if there is some way to decrease those levels.
