The "Spanish Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet" (SKMD) has been shown to be an effective and safe way to cure patients suffering from metabolic syndrome (MS). Keeping in mind that nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is closely associated with MS, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential therapeutic properties under free living conditions of the SKMD in patients with MS (following the International Diabetes Federation [IDF] consensus guidelines) and NAFLD (suspected by using a…

Health benefits of Mediterranean diet in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
TLDR
A growing body of evidence has supported the idea that the Mediterranean diet, associated with physical activity and cognitive behavior therapy, may be the reference nutritional profile for the prevention and the treatment of NAFLD patients.
Beneficial effects of the ketogenic diet on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease: A comprehensive review of the literature
TLDR
Clinical evidence, metabolic pathways involved, and strict categorization of dietary interventions involved in the ketogenic diet and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease are focused on, to provide an accurate revision of current literature on KDs and NAFLD.
Effects of Mediterranean diet supplemented with silybin–vitamin E–phospholipid complex in overweight patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
TLDR
It was shown that the Mediterranean diet alone, or in association with the Realsil complex, led to the significant variation in BMI, waist circumference, total cholesterol and triglycerides and a statistically significant decrease in homeostasis model assessment technique in Group B patients.
Nutritional Approaches for the Management of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: An Evidence-Based Review
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to explore and compare the subtleties and nuances of the most relevant clinical practice guidelines and the nutritional approaches for the management of NAFLD with a special attention to tangible outcomes and long-term adherence.
Mediterranean diet and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: new therapeutic option around the corner?
TLDR
Among all the diets that have been proposed, a Mediterranean diet was the most effective dietary option for inducing weight loss together with beneficial effects on all the risk factors associated with metabolic syndrome and NAFLD.
Mediterranean Diet and Multi-Ingredient-Based Interventions for the Management of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
TLDR
Current strategies for treating NAFLD and NASH based on multi-ingredient-based supplements or the Mediterranean diet, a dietary pattern rich in bioactive compounds, are reviewed.
Alimentary regimen in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: Mediterranean diet.
TLDR
New evidence supports the idea that the Mediterranean diet, associated with physical activity and cognitive behaviour therapy, may have an important role in the prevention and the treatment of NAFLD.
Ketogenic, Hypocaloric Diet Improves Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis
TLDR
A ketogenic, hypocaloric, commercial diet (“Ideal Protein,” IP) resulted in striking weight loss and significant improvements in metabolic parameters and liver tests, suggesting that this approach carries promise for the dietary management of patients with NASH.
Mediterranean Diet and NAFLD: What We Know and Questions That Still Need to Be Answered
TLDR
The evidence regarding the efficacy of the Mediterranean Diet as a treatment for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is discussed and the effects on liver-related outcomes are reported.

A pilot study of the Spanish Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet: an effective therapy for the metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
It is concluded that the SKMD could be an effective and safe way to cure patients suffering from metabolic syndrome and should be included in longer-term use and a comparison with other ketogenic diets.
The Effect of a Low-Carbohydrate, Ketogenic Diet on Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: A Pilot Study
TLDR
Six months of a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet led to significant weight loss and histologic improvement of fatty liver disease.
Adherence to the Mediterranean diet moderates the association of aminotransferases with the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome; the ATTICA study
TLDR
Aminotransferases ratio constitutes a marker of the metabolic syndrome among healthy adults; however, this relationship is moderated when individuals are close to the Mediterranean dietary pattern.
Spanish Ketogenic Mediterranean diet: a healthy cardiovascular diet for weight loss
TLDR
The SKMD is safe, an effective way of losing weight, promoting non-atherogenic lipid profiles, lowering blood pressure and improving fasting blood glucose levels, and future research should include a larger sample size, a longer term use and a comparison with other ketogenic diets.
Fatty liver--an additional and treatable feature of the insulin resistance syndrome.
TLDR
Dietary intervention and follow-up revealed a high potential for reversibility and a benign course, and fatty liver was strongly associated with many features of the insulin resistance syndrome.
Fatty Infiltration of Liver in Hyperlipidemic Patients
TLDR
It is indicated that ultrasonographic evidence of fatty infiltration of the liver is evident in approximately 50% of patients with hyperlipidemia, and diabetes was the only risk factor other than hypertriglyceridemia that was significantly associated with fatty infiltration.
Effects of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids from seal oils on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease associated with hyperlipidemia.
TLDR
The results indicate that n-3 PUFA from seal oils is safe and efficacious for patients with NAFLD associated with hyperlipidemia and can improve their total symptom scores, ALT, serum lipid levels and normalization of ultrasonographic evidence.
Association of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease with insulin resistance.
Olive oil consumption and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
TLDR
The dietary sources of the monounsaturated fatty acids, the composition of olive oil, dietary fats and their relationship to insulin resistance and postprandial lipid and glucose responses in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis are described, clinical and experimental studies that assess the relationship between olive oil and NAFLD, and the mechanism by which olive oil ameliorates fatty liver are described.
Determinants of the association of overweight with elevated serum alanine aminotransferase activity in the United States.
TLDR
In this large, national, population-based study, central adiposity, hyperleptinemia, and hyperinsulinemia were the major determinants of the association of overweight with elevated serum ALT activity.
