I’ve been considering quitting drinking alcohol alltogether since my birthday… (gift to self) Since I graduated high school 15 years ago I started drinking on a pretty regular basis (go Army!) and went from 160ish to about 265 with the help of the alcohol and a poor diet over that time. I’m right around 25% BF now and decided enough is enough.
Well we just opened a new hospital and I volunteered to be a patient for my CT department so some of my coworkers could get some training.
Come to find out I have a fatty liver which I know to be related to the alcohol consumption. It sealed the deal for me. No alcohol for the next year and get rechecked.
I got blood tests done and they all came back normal but I think that’s just because I tend to stay active. I can squat/deadlift 300 for reps and max bench 275.(I only have 300lbs of weights.)
I need nutritional advice on foods and supplements that will help me detox my liver over the next year (but as soon as possible).
I know the upside to no alcohol and better nutrition is fat loss, so I’m looking forward to that. But my main goal is to clean out my system and lay a great foundation for starting a serious mass gaining program…
I would even consider going vegetarian (not vegan) for a while to help speed the process, but have no idea where to start…
