  • Suddenly can't handle beef?

    I moved recently, and in that time I got a little lazy and ended up eating a lot of frozen fish and pork, meaning I didn't make steak/hamburger/pot roast for about a month.

    Now, when I do eat beef I get (warning: graphic) the runs pretty badly - even if I handle the meat well and cook it well done. I hope I don't have to quit it!

    Any idea what could be going on?

    Have you ever had any gall bladder issues?

      What type of beef are you eating? You may find some relief by eating grassfed beef. Just a thought.

        While you were off beef, were you eating plenty of fat in the pork? If not, your lipase levels may take a little time to come back up (perhaps). The fact that you've been off the beef for a month before the problem arose wouldn't immediately make me think of an intolerance (usually this happens due to eating too much) but the immune system is a complex thing, so I guess it shouldn't be ruled out.
