Wondering if there are certain foods that you should or shouldn't eat when you have liver cirrhosis, or if there's any specific cirrhosis diet plan that you should follow? Well, there are definitely things you want to avoid such as alcohol, unhealthy trans and saturated fats and excess salt. And, just as importantly, you'll want to add foods into your diet that can help heal your liver. Three of these foods are:

#1. Proteins, but not just any proteins. Low or no-fat milk, eggs and beans are great proteins because they don't create ammonia like some other proteins (such as red meat), and they're high in iron. Oh, and don't forget the tofu too. Really, it's not so bad. :)

#2. Woot for coffee! Coffee is not just OK to consume on a cirrhosis liver diet, but it's GOOD! Fresh-brewed though. None of that instant stuff, even if it is Starbucks. And look, coffee is easy to overdo. I know this from personal experience, believe me! But it's good to keep it to no more than 3 cups a day. Any more and you're going to end up stressing your body out. And you'll be shaking all over the place anyway. That's not too fun, right?

#3. Hard-boiled eggs. And not just on Easter. One per day. Eggs are amazing for your body anyway, but especially for someone with liver cirrhosis. The B vitamins in the egg is known to help regenerate liver tissue. You can add it to salad, or eat it all by itself, whichever way you choose.

Again, three important things to add to your cirrhosis diet are proteins high in iron but low in ammonia, fresh-brewed coffee, and hard-boiled eggs. All of these three things can help your body get stronger and allow your liver to take a rest from the toxins.

Now, if you're thinking that you need something to help guide you through a proper cirrhosis diet plan, including delicious recipes, then you're in luck. All you need to do is follow the link. Really, it's not as hard to reverse the effects of liver cirrhosis as you may think. Don't believe me? Just try it.
