Could all the meat and fat of paleo eating tax my liver?

I have Hep B and Hep C virus. I have never needed treatment and my labs have always been good. I am about two weeks into this eating style, with no grains, dairy or fruit. I am eating roughly 60:30:10 fat/protein/carbs. The fat is mostly animal fat, and maybe an avocado and some coconut oil. I feel a little congested in the body, constipated, and my face is a little broken out. That's why I ask. Otherwise, I don't feel too shabby.

Raw almond butter is great. I tend to use it sparingly because I can eat the whole jar with a spoon. It's expensive...but if you can afford it, worth it!

That's a good point, I guess it's I am not ready to eat so many carbs in the form of non-starchy vegetables. I do want to lose a little weight, and I am trying to kill a, um, yeast infection by natural means: starving it. I am going to try to work towards more greenleafy vegetables. It's hard though. Eating sweet potatos: easy but not so good for the issue I'm having, according to GAPS. Thanks.

First part: yeah that's what I figure. Second part: I am discovering the charms of coconut oil lately. I like to eat it out of the jar with almond butter. Yeah, I know I got to lose the almond butter. But its better than sugar for now.

Paleo isn't inherently high meat/fat and low carb. There is nothing un-paleo about eating more carbs, assuming you eat quality carbs. 10% is pretty low carb, why not have more?

It's far better than the non-alcoholic liver disease that comes from excess carbohydrate and chemicals in food that the liver is constantly working overtime to process.

Coconut oil on the other hand, is one of THE BEST foods to consume to help cleanse and refresh the liver. If anything, add more!
