One of the precursors to fatty liver disease, which is associated with obesity and can lead to liver failure, is a lack of exercise. People who don’t move their bodies enough are not only more susceptible to cancer, diabetes, stroke and heart disease; they do their livers a major disservice too.
If you don’t get enough exercise, try to put more into your routine immediately. You can start slowly, walking around the block once or twice at lunchtime, then build up from there. Eventually, you should be spending 150-300 minutes per week engaged in healthy exercise, though that can include low-impact activities such as gardening. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself, either: Your liver can lose fat even when you don’t lose a pound, so it’s still worth it.
