During it I lost8-10 kgs of my weight (or should I say fat? :) For the last 2 months I had been surviving on veggies, fruit and some milk only & I have started lovin it. Some essential info ab0ut me ; 46 yrs. 72 kgs,5 feet 8 inches height. Bilurubbin % as on 5th September is 3.66%( AS ON 22/7/12 It was 21%)., SGPT 58 & SGOT 61.(As on 20th July it was about 6000.) So need your help and guidance here. as these things often make me confused. making breakfast, lunch, dinner lists, counting cals n all. So can anyone here suggest a suitable diet for me that would help me. As cuz of jaundice I m not allowed to eat oil & non veg for the next 3-4 months All I would want is to have a lean and healthy body (in and out). And m ready to work towards it. but just need some directions. as to the correct diet to complete protien requirement and right kind of exercise. any help to clarify things will help a lot.

Thanks for posting your query.
As there is no dietary restriction in jaundice.
Most of the times, jaundice is due to acute viral hepatitis and it will take 2 months for recovery.
Whatever symptoms occurs in the firt week is painful and at times require hospitalization.
During this 1st week, there is some restriction in diet as oily food give bad smell and may increase vomiting.
As our body require carbohydrates, fat and sugar....liver also need all these ingredients.
You lost your weight because of restricted diet.
You should consult with your treating doctor and should start normal diet with normal routine activities.
If you continue restricted diet, then you may continue loosing weight and sometimes very difficult to regain.
take care,
