Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) shows rising prevalence among individuals from different ages and incomes, especially in Western-lifestyle societies. This asymptomatic condition can progress to more severe pathologies, increasing the morbidity and mortality of individuals.
Many efforts have been made to find strategies to decrease fat accumulation in the liver and, ultimately, in the whole body. In the last decades, a growing body of evidence documented that changes in lifestyle are the most effective, especially as regards nutritional habits.
At least two hallmarks contribute to the success of dietary interventions: First, a reduction in calorie intake; second, an increase in fruit and vegetable consumption, which leads to enhanced intake of phytonutrients able to exert antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions.
Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to provide new insights into the effectiveness of diet regimens and specific dietary compounds to prevent and/or cure NAFLD.
