Great reading! Leaky gut and fatty liver and low carb has been on my radar for a while now. What always comes to mind is how doctors used to call patients liars when they started to come in in droves with liver problems and the docs asked them if they drank - and most said no.

Fatty liver disease

...At least two studies, one from Duke University, and one from Cambridge University have shown that reducing carbohydrate consumption and increasing saturated fat intake helps the liver shed excess fat in as little as three days.

^ The Duke University study link used to be active, the Cambridge study link still is.

And I did find this: DIABETES RESEARCHERS FIND SWITCH FOR FATTY LIVER DISEASE 5-18-18

from above ^

Working with Duke colleague Mark Herman, the researchers also found that a high-fructose diet (like drinking a lot of sugary soda), “creates an imbalance in the levels of the kinase and phosphatase as part of a larger program that promotes fat accumulation in the liver,” White said. Kinase activity goes up, phosphatase activity goes down -- more bad guy, less good guy -- leading to more liver fat and poorer metabolic health.
