Can’t stop having sweets

Have sweet drink on a daily basis

Soft drinks contain more than 10 grams of sugar in one bottle. One stick of sugar is 3 grams, so it means you take more than 3 sticks of sugar by one soft drink. Also, you could take more sugar in coffee or tea.
Sleep right after eating
You should be especially careful after dinner. If you sleep right after eating, you don’t use energy from food but keep it in the liver. Autonomic nerve in divided into sympathetic nerve and parasympathetic nerve.

Lack of sleep
When you don’t have enough sleep, orexigenic hormone called ghrelin increases, and anorectic hormone called leptin decreases. As a result, lack of sleep leads appetite and too much food causes the fatty liver.
Fat kept in the liver works as energy when you sleep. So lack of sleep can cause the fatty liver.
Lack of exercise
You can get rid of neutral fat in the fatty liver by doing exercise. The muscles accelerate metabolism and help breaking harmful materials. Aerobic exercise is recommendable.
It’s ideal to walk for more than 30 minutes, and more than 3 times a week. Exercise without oxygen requires almost no body fat, so you should be careful what kind exercise you do.
If you don’t take enough amount of nutrient by skipping breakfast or so, your body thinks you are in a starvation state, and try to absorb and keep nutrition the next time you eat something. Irregular eating habits strain the liver, and it can lead the fatty liver.
