Vegetarian Paleo...
0

6 posts in this topic

I've been a vegetarian for 2 years. I won't go back to eating meat. So don't try to convince me otherwise ;):P I'm wondering if there's anyone else out there that does this effectively as well as your thoughts on the pros and cons. I do eat eggs and cheese, both local and organic. I do not drink milk but I love both almond and coconut milks.

Cheese wouldn't work in the Paleo diet, which would leave you with lots of eggs to get your b12, etc. Are you averse to eating fish?

I would think it depends on your interpretation of Paleo. My personal interpretation is: Very simply, eat what our ancestors ate before the agricultural revolution.Basically,, Eat nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables. And on occasion meat.

But as a vegetarian of course the meat is out,,so consider adding legumes (if tolerated)

Can it be done long term?? As long as you watch your protein ,B12 and D levels ,, why not. :)

My body doesn't tolerate meat very well at all, and I really don't like it-never have. I've considered putting in a serving of fish a week, but haven't made the jump yet. I know the cheese doesn't work on an actual Paleo diet, but because I can't eat a dozen eggs per day, greek yogurt and 1 serving of cheese per day are an added protein that I need. I eat nuts daily, lower carb fruits like berries, lots of veggies and almost nothing processed. I'm working on getting most of the grains out of my diet other than perhaps quinoa. It's still a work in progress ;) So, I guess I won't give it a name, because from what I've read on other blogs and forums, Paleo's take their diet waaaaaay serious. I don't wish to offend B)

I think you should do a vegetarian paleo with whatever you want and call it the Rachelle-Paleo diet. If you are careful, it should work from a nutrition and health standpoint. It will just take more work than a regular paleo diet.

Personally, I don't think grains are quite the villain people make them out to be, we just eat WAAAAY too much. If you were in a society pre-cereal cultivation, you would still eat things like wild rices from time to time, because it's in your environment and safe to eat. Would you eat it all the time? Probably not - probably only when food sources are getting a little slim.

Now, I do think dairy is taking the place of a lot of food people *should* be eating. You don't need anything that dairy can provide you - certainly not the calcium. I like to use pages that cite their sources, but I think this sums up dairy pretty well, and everything on here is easily verifiable.

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
