I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas. I have a question or two regarding a diet that is helpful for NASH. I recently read that fructose and high fructose corn syrup can increase NASH progression. I confessed on here that since November, I have been sneaking a lot of cookies. It's sometimes SO hard for me because my husband and two daughters have the WORST eating habits and we have cookies, chips, junk, junk, junk ALL over the house. I let loose about 6 weeks back and started having a cookie or two in the evenings. They next thing I knew, I was having a cookie or 10 in the evenings. I also got a little lax and have eaten what I thought were some of the more healthy processed foods. I kept everything else in my diet healthy and natural. So, I just happened to read an article about how damaging fructose and HFCS can be for those with NASH. I looked at the labels of what I've been eating last night, and the two main things were LOADED with fructose and/or HFCS. I have totally stopped eating those things as of yesterday and am back on a TOTALLY natural diet. I have only gained about 3 pounds over the holidays, but still, am concerned over the damage I may have caused over the last couple of months. If I did, is it reversible as long as I go back to excluding those items from my diet? I am so mad at myself. I had so much will power when I was losing 60 pounds, but got there and enzymes regulated and I think I got a little less nervous and splurged too much. I've written about that on here, but did not know about the fructose. I hope I haven't done anything that can't be reversed or caused major scaring over the past 2 months. I would really appreciate someone writing me back with your knowledge of this issue. Thank you so much! Now, it's off to the treadmill!
