That's It I'm Going Vegetarian
Posted 22 August 2012 - 03:17 PM
Reason for considering vegitarianism: any and all news articles about pink slime, large chunk of hair found in a piece of ground beef, and getting a stomach ache after eating almost any type of meat...also my friend said that I would die if I was a vegitarian, I took that as a challange...
biggest question is would i be able to get enough protein without using supplament? I would ask my dr but my gi moved and the new one doesn't believe i have celiacs (looking for a replacement) and i have aged out of my pediatrition so i'm looking for a new dr too, and the only time i have meet a dietition was when i was first diagnosed when i was 16 aka 3 yrs ago
thanks for your help

I'm not doubting you may have a problem with meat - only that if you already have many foods that are bothering you that perhaps you should take a look at everything you are eating.
Turns out I can't tolerate most of the more troublesome lectin groups: Grains, Dairy, Legumes, Nuts and Nightshades but can tolerate Meat, Vegies and selected Fruits.
If you were to remove all meat protein and replace with legume and nut protein, you may have some trouble. I think you already said you had trouble with soy and peanuts - two legumes.
So while a person may be able to be gluten/meat free - it is wise to make sure what the best fuel for your body is.
Good Luck to you

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
