Can't eat meat without getting sick. - April 10th 2012, 02:24 PM

So around October of my senior year (that would be october 2010) I became vegetarian, because I was trying to overcome my ED and I felt better about eating if I wasn't eating meat. Well now I feel good enough about my body that I don't freak out over food anymore, and I hate having to take a crapton of iron everyday so I'm trying to start eating meat again. So far, I've been fine with chicken, turkey, and seafood, but when I eat red meat, my stomach gets really sick and I feel like I'm gonna puke. I get that my stomach doesn't know how to process it yet, but how long is this gonna keep happening? I don't wanna keep eating meat if I keep feeling like this.

Maybe that will help.” Harvey Milk, 1978

It happens. My sister is actually allergic to all kinds of meat. They literally make her sick.
I'd just stick to eating the veggie burgers, like black bean or boca. But if you really want to eat it more, just try it in small portions.

I'm allergic to pork products, I can't eat pork. It makes me puke and my throat swells shut..

It's not an allergy; I ate meat for most of my life. It's only when I eat "red meat" that I get sick...

Just eat small bits at a time and it should eventually get better, if not then I'd recommend seeing a doctor.

Summer, I don't intend this sarcastically at all, but if you don't feel well eating red meat then don't. The important thing is to get the nutrients your body needs, and if you're incorporating poultry and sea food into your diet you're probably getting all that stuff anyways. Besides, red meat isn't all that good for you, it's higher in saturated fats that your body doesn't need.

If you've struggled with ED in the past, you know how the whole control issue gets caught up in there, be careful not to let the red meat thing cause a control struggle for you. You can safely live without it.

I'm a veggie and whenever I'm forced to eat meat, I get sick. It's just that your stomach is not used to eating meat yet. Just eat a little bit at a time or just don't eat red meat. No one said you had to eat it.

It may just be that your body doesnt like it, before i became a veggie whenever i ate red meat, i would get really sick too and it happens to my mom too, so as long as you are getting all the nutrients from somewhere else, red meat isnt a necessity, just stick to chicken and fish.

Your body is struggling to adapt.

Paleo. Google it. Don't jump on the "diet" bullshit bandwagon, but take bits from it to improve your diet. It's focused on meat and veggies.
