    how much red meat

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    i understand the value of it, espeially of the high quality grass fed stuff. but isnt it still kind of tough on our digestive system? im trying to plan my meals for the week and am wondering how many times a week it is okay to eat red meat?

    Meat is not tough on the digestive system
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Oh the myths the newbies all have!

    Last weekend I brought a cooked steak on a hike. The original protein bar.

    eat meat often. preferably oogly bits and not just lean muscle meat.

    i always feel really good after i eat some and for many hours after. until it's time to have some more.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Eh, whatever you feel like. We're not huge beef eaters in my house, I'd say we have it once or twice a week. But we're not hung up on it so once in a while it's more like four or five times a week. Nothing to worry about. Just make sure you get some good fish in!

    I actually had the same question. I'm recovering from cancer and the primal/paleo diet is my naturopathic doc's idea. So, far my research of this diet has been positive, but I'm concerned about the inflammation from eating meat. I'm just learning about this lifestyle and I'm sure in a year I'll be laughing at myself for being so concerned.

    Meat will not cause inflammation. Seed products, like grains and grain based oils, or soy, will cause inflammation. As someone with an autoimmune disorder I can flare over trivial things, but I've never been bothered by a steak.

    Tonight I took 3lbs of ground beef out of the freezer to make meatloaf tomorrow, plus 2lbs of stew beef for the slow cooker. Some of that might make it to Tuesday, but unlikely, and it's just myself to feed at the moment.

    If you listen to your body after meals and especially the next day, you'll start to recognize different signs. For me, I always feel like Supergirl after eating Liver, Lamb, Cod and Eggs. I guess they are just foods that my body is happy with. I love bacon/pork, but pig products and chicken never make me feel that great the next day. At least I notice no kind of extra 'boost'.

    Listen to your body after eating red meat and decide what messages it may be telling you.

    Its been known for over a hundred years that meat is broken down by stomach acid and entirely digested in the stomach in about an hour. It doesn't make it to the small intestine. The myth that steak rots in your stomach is a piece of vegetarian propoganda.
