Problems With Meat And Non-allergens?

Recommended Posts

There are so many things that make me feel sedated and horrible including casein, soy, and fish but some are non-allergens such as meat.

Whenever I eat meat, I get the same reactions that I get when I eat casein and soy. I keep thinking to myself that meat isn't an allergen and that it can't be the cause of these symptoms - that I have to be overlooking something else in my diet. Yet everytime I try to reintroduce it, it hits me.

I can't tell if chicken causes it, but I definitely get the reaction from beef/ham. I doubt it's something like an additive such as sodium nitrate or MSG as it's not just lunch meat but even the raw meats as well. I also get the same reaction to fish, so I'm thinking that maybe I have a hard time digesting protein?

I take pancreatin with it, but that doesn't seem to help much. And I know most people feel tired after eating large meals, but this is different. Almond butter also does the same and almonds are not a common allergy/intolerance. The more I eat, the more I think it's just any high protein or hard to digest meal.

Is my digestive tract perhaps damaged to the point where I should avoid any hard to digest meals for the time being? I've been gluten free for over a year so meh, maybe I need more time? I've been taking Twinlab pancreatin supplements (even two to three following a large meal) and they don't seem to have any effect whatsoever.

How long have you been gluten-free? It could be that you are not healed enough yet and are still having a bit of trouble digesting the fats in foods. I'm sure those more knowledgeable will chime in. Definitely stick only with those foods that feel good for now. A food log is invaluable. Be sure to document all you eat and how you feel. I've kept one for three years and it is so useful- AND I do work full-time along with part-time work, have two teenagers and am in grad school- IT CAN BE DONE!!!!!

Good luck; I hope you can get to the bottom of this!

Feel better.....

I have felt like that before! It's like there is a brick in your stomach and it takes forever to digest it!

Are you currently taking probiotics or digestive enzymes, Wolly?

What about eating pineapple with your meal... it has the natural enzymes that help turn meat into digestible amino acids.

Good luck and I hope you get this all figured out. :)

Gluten is not a problem for me but I have gastroparesis. So most meat is hard for me to digest. I can do chicken breast (mostly in the form of Ian's nuggets and canned chicken), tuna and ground beef. That's it! I have to be really careful with the raw vegetables and can't eat some of them at all. Like broccoli. Or too much lettuce.
