    How common is meat intolerance?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I was wondering this this morning. I've been eating chicken thighs (3 a day) for five days now, as I found some on offer and no room in the freezer. Anyway, today I'm feeling awful. Really bloated and painful stomach.

    Do people develop intolerance to meat that could cause these symptoms? And do you find that rotating your foods, or cutting them out for several weeks prevents any problems?

    That probably has nothing to do with the chicken, unless it's gone bad. Although, chicken's probably not the best thing to be eating at every meal for five days straight. I'd try rotating between some other proteins.

    I've honestly never heard of such a thing as meat intolerance, aside from ex-vegetarians / vegans who need to adjust to it again. It seems like you would need to have an extremely damaged gut to not be able to digest plain old meat.

    I don't digest chicken very well either.

    It's a chicken thing, not a "meat" thing. (For me.)

    Goat, lamb, beef, pork, ostrich, venison, bison, rabbit, frog, oyster, fish. I do pretty well with all of those.

    I'm thinking it may not be meat, but what your meat was fed.

    Actually, chickens do eat seeds (read: grains) naturally. They just also need animal products (bugs, grubs, mice, etc) for optimum health.

    I'd be leery of any meat that's been in the fridge for 5 days. If it is indeed the chicken that's the culprit I would suspect first and foremost that it's gone bad.

    Smile Meat intolerance is real!

    Most of my life I was had digestion problems. (IBD, very bad constipation, waking up in the morning and feeling like I was experiencing morning sickness.) Finally, several months ago, I gave up eating meat to loose some weight. (Less calories in my meals.) My sinus problems, migraines, urinary tract infections, anxiety attacks, GI problems and immunity problems stopped completely! I talked to my mother and said I swore I was intolerant to meat. She said she worked with a woman who had the exact same symptoms I had if she ate any kind of meat. (That includes seafood.) Everything cleared up within a month and I had weight fall off like mad. My anxiety attacks that had been so bad that I went to see the doctor to make sure it wasn't a heart condition had even cleared up. (The doctor suggested it was edema from the allergies.) I attempted to eat some shrimp a few days ago and had the "greenies" diarrhea for two days. My advise is if meat makes you sick, give it up and see if it makes a difference. It won't hurt you and you will not believe how creative marketing has been to catch the non-meat eating market. You'll also find yourself more creative as well to create dishes to eat. I guess its rare to have this or maybe medical science isn't as aware of this condition yet.
