Alcoholic (AFLD) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) represent the most common liver diseases worldwide. Most consumers of more than two drinks per day suffer from hepatomegaly due to steatosis—a benign state that may further progress to steatohepatitis and cirrhosis. The spread of NAFLD is strongly associated with the increasing prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes due to changing lifestyles and dietary habits. However, most people with fatty liver in the absence of significant hepatic fibrosis do not develop serious liver problems. Conversely, they have an increased chance of developing cardiovascular diseases, which represent the major causes of death in this setting. Dietary cancelling may play a major role in the management of fatty liver disease. The aim of this Special Issue, “The Role of Diet in Fatty Liver Disease”, is to provide an update on the different nutritional approaches to AFLD/NAFLD and its related pathophysiological mechanisms and metabolic comorbidities. Contributions may include original articles, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses on the role of diet on the prevention and treatment of fatty liver disease.
