Weired Eating Habbit ??? - January 29th 2009, 12:18 PM

I suppose this goes here because its to do with food. Im not 100% sure that its a eating disorder just some weird habbits I think...

Well I hate my weird eating habbit... I like to eat raw meat, I know the trouble it can cause as such. But to me it tastes so nice... Its been happening for some time now (5-6 months). Before you suggest I'm pregent, I'm not I have had test due to injections happening at school, and theres no way I could be due to protection we use... So why have I got so weired habbits and can I change them? If I dont how much risk am I in ?

Actually raw meat is easier to digest & so far as I know, not harmful in itself... But you can catch some nasty stuff from uncooked meat, since it might have worms, all kinds of bacterea that can make you sick... So... I dunno... Try researching this more, or at least on ways you could "clean" the meat, to maybe find out if you could get rid of all the parasites without cooking the meat.

Hey there, I've moved this to general health, as you seem to think it's just a habit/craving and not a disorder.

To answer your question: I really don't know. You should speak to a medical professional about this. As soon as possible. I always assumed consuming raw meat was unhealthy, as that is what I was told. But I'm no doctor.

I got told the same as you that eating half cooked or raw foods (defintly meat) is bad for you and cause your problems. And yes I believe its just strange habbit I have got a personaly enjoy... And if Im in any real danger then how to stop... I havent noticed any signs so far about eating the raw meat.

Actually, cravings for raw meats can be a sign of an iron, zinc or b12 deficiency. You should ask a doctor to test these levels for you.
Try eating sushi or carpaccio in the meantime, as the beef is cured/lightly cooked so it's a lot less likely to cause samonella, ecoli or tapeworm to develop.

I love both of these foods... they're awesome. But I like cooked meat too, so who knows.

I saw an episode of WifeSwap and a family that was on there only had a raw meat diet and when the other wife had them eat regular food they got ill. I don't know if you experience that from eating raw and cooked. Anyway, it had a specific name but I can't remember it. I tried looking it up but had no luck really. I suggest talking to your doctor.

eating some raw meats is actually okay (parents = ex food inspectors) like beef is actually fine raw so long as it's GOOD QUALITY thats really important, under no circumstances eat raw pork or chicken both of these carry really nasty bugs, and wel raw fish just rocks lol but raw beef is fine
