In this work we acquired the first z-spectrum from the human liver in vivo at 7T. Glycogen and NOE peaks were observed, and their evolution over time was monitored after fasting and after a meal. Both the glycogen peak and the NOE peak at -1.7ppm were observed to increase 2-4 hours after a high carbohydrate meal.
