    Hello Everyone
    My diet is abundant in fructose/sugar(618.2g carbs(sugar) total, of which 145.8g is from lactose). I limit the fructose per hour to decrease the risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, by consuming sugars every hour to two hours max. Would these frequent feedings cause the liver to not store as much energy?
    Or is the time asleep enough to keep your liver from being lazy?
    And if you are having trouble staying asleep for long, is it due to the frequent feedings altering the liver's need to store more energy?

    You can just try to decrease you meal/snack frequency and see what happens. I feel better with 3-4 larger meals and maybe one or two sugary snacks in between (including hot cocoa and a little OJ before going to bed)

    I eat three times a day, but at 4 it would be 100g of sugar per meal(aside from the lactose), assuming that I leave 72g right before bed. Not sure if it could work due to the risk of fatty liver, but if it's not necessary, I'd rather limit the amount of liquid at once.
