I have been on a primal/paleo diet since Oct 2010 and generally felt better, coming from 6 year of vegeterian/vegan eating which got rid of my high blood pressure. One thing is that my TC increased to about 260 this year from 170 4 years ago, other lipid markers are OK.
But this summer I developed urinary dificulties which suggest prostate problems.
My food profile for the last 2 y is:
Total ccal/day 2071
Protein - 107 gr, 437 ccal, 21%
Carbs - 153 , 578, 28%
Fats - 119, 1059, 51% (6% poly)
fish, beef, liver (chicken, beef), occasional pork and chicken, 15 eggs/week but will limit to 6
goat hard cheese added last 12 months
butter (will limit now), olive oil
vegs, fruits, potatoes, some rice
170 cm, 65-66 kgs
office job, sedentary life style, some exercise indoors
Apart from the hay fever which hits me for a month and Lyme from last year I have not had health problems.
That is why these prostate difficulties came out of nowhere.
Everybody says limit red meat and animal protein and I am seriously rethinking the whole diet now together with the usual natural stuff (hot pepper, molasses, kelp, and other ready made supplements).
I would be thankful for any input.
Along with any other measures you may try, eat pepitas (pumpkin seeds), squash seeds ,(lightly roasted). They're not just good food, they contain elements like zinc and magnesium that are good for people in general, men in particular.
Why would limiting red meat and animal protein help?
