  • Difficulty digesting fish

    Every time I have fish, it feels like it stays in my stomach FOREVER. I get indigestion and I burp it for hours after eating it. I can eat red meat and chicken to my hearts content and never have an issue.

    Why does that happen only when I eat fish? Does this mean that maybe I shouldn't eat fish?

    What kind of fish are you eating, and does it come from a good source? I used to get terrible IBS when I ate cheap salmon.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

      Yes. Stop eating fish for several months before you try it again.
