S. Hassani Zadeh et al. (Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences, Yazd, Iran) carried out this meta-analysis to examine the association between dietary patterns and NAFLD. The authors selected three dietary patterns of Western, Prudent, and Mediterranean. The Prudent diet curtails the intake of eggs, whole milk, and whole milk-based dairy products, liver, shellfish, and commercial pastry products. Lean meats are permitted but preference is given to fish which is recommended for use at least four or five times a week.
According to this article, “western dietary patterns increased the risk of NAFLD by 56%, although the Prudent and Mediterranean dietary patterns reduced the risk of this disease by 22% and 23%, respectively.”
