Introducing Chris Masterjohn Lite

An estimated 70 million Americans have fatty liver disease, and the strongest predictors are obesity and type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

The lab I worked in when I completed my PhD specialized in fatty liver disease, so I did a lot of research on this and have published some papers on it.

Here’s my recommended fix, which I call the “choline-boosting modified fast.” It focuses on weight loss that is as rapid as the person can handle, but no more rapid; using the foods least likely to contribute to liver fat, modified according to the person’s ability to digest them; and supplying the nutrients needed to remove fat from the liver through foods, if possible, and otherwise through supplements.

Tune in for the details!

Transcripts make it easier to use the information. You may just prefer to read. But having transcripts and video or audio can massively increase your productivity. For example, you can listen while you are washing the dishes, commuting to work, or doing other menial tasks, getting familiar with the material and scanning for things you want to learn more about. Then you can come back and keyword-search the transcript for the exact things you want to master in more detail.

Transcripts are a premium feature of the CMJ Masterpass. Save 10% by using this link.

  1. Chris, I bought your V&M 101. On this page about fatty liver, you said “modified according to the person’s ability to digest them.” I will be hunting for what your thoughts are on how to determine one’s ability to digest–how to figure that out.

    1. Chris, the video on this page seems to be malfunctioning, “An error occurred. Please try again later. (Playback ID: o7GSJkur3n-n9yuh) “

  2. Hi Chris,
    I’m fascinated by your research and information. I’m wondering if this plan can work for me if I have adrenal fatigue and stress that I have trouble controlling? My holistic nutritionist has told me that high fat dairy and bone broth are very soothing for the adrenals. I am eating higher fat, moderate protein, moderate carbs I guess. Definitely not losing weight (I have about 40-50 pounds to lose and have been teetering on the brink of prediabetes). But I feel that to take fat out of my diet might make me extremely stressed and frazzled. Thanks.
