Hand in hand with the obesity epidemic is a silent crisis impacting one-third of the United States: nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). And because its symptoms often don't manifest until it becomes serious,many people don't even know they are at risk. In The Liver Reset Solution, Kristin Kirkpatrick, manager of Wellness Nutrition Services at the Cleveland Clinic, and renowned hepatologist Dr. Ibrahim Hanouneh provide tools and strategies for healing and protecting one of our most vital organs. Part wake-up call, part call-to-action, this book presents an authoritative and accessible guide to the factors that threaten our livers, our waistlines, and our lives-as well as what we can do to reverse liver disease, lose weight, and safeguard our overall health.
