Fat risks to Paleo Why My roommate Austin should avoid the paleo Diet.

The paleo diet involves meats, nut, and fruit that could be found naturally through hunting and gathering. The goal of the diet is to burn fat for energy instead of carbs. The high amounts of fat digested leaves a potential for serious harm to the liver.

Fat storage is located under the layers of skin.

Each lobe is made up of smaller sections of fat collection.

Each adipocyte (fat cell) has it's own storage reservoir for fat.

Triglycerides are the basic structure for fat in the body.
Fat catabolism and digestion increase the triglycerides in the bloodstream. Liver produces bile to aid in fat digestion along with processing the triglycerides in the bloodstream.
Too many triglycerides in the bloodstream can cause permanent damage to the liver. More energy is needed to breakdown fat. The fatty acid chains can be poisonous to the liver cells in large quantities.
Alternative diets would be a healthier choice for Austin to become lean.
