And here’s what to eat…
Sample of what to eat on a meat-based diet.
🦴Aged meats usually are higher in histamines or can cause more histamines to release in the body.
🧬Histamines are chemicals created in the body that is released by white blood cells into the blood when the immune system is defending against a potential allergen.
💡If you are trying a meat-based diet to eliminate some of your allergy and autoimmune symptoms, it’s better to remove foods with higher histamine counts while you heal the gut.
⛑I talk about histamine intolerance and the critical importance of healing the gut in @carnivorecure. Reducing high histamine foods is a bandaid (but necessary initially) but the root cause is to heal the gut.
🌟Healing the gut will allow your immune system to handle more histamines. Of course this is bioindividual but most people can get better.
🥛Dairy can have histamines and the pasteurized forms aren’t as ideal. Raw dairy is optimal because it is more nutrient-dense, supports gut-healing and has all the natural enzymes intended to be in dairy.
🐟Try fish eggs, as they are nutrient-powerhouses. Salmon roe is one of my favorites but it’s an acquired taste. All eggs are nature’s perfect food.
🍳You may need to do yolks only initially if you can’t tolerate eggs as most of the sensitivities are in the egg white proteins.
🥩If you only prefer muscles meats, that’s perfectly fine. We don’t need to count and measure every single nutrient to make sure we are eating optimally.
🚨If we don’t eat the way conventional dietitians recommended, maybe we don’t need to follow their Recommended Daily Allowances. (I do keep an eye on the excessive ones though…)
🧂Monitor your electrolytes and salt consumption. You need more salt on a meat-based diet, especially if you’re new. We don’t retain as much water without carbs. You will feel the effects of mineral imbalances quickly.
💦Try sole water in the mornings https://nutritionwithjudy.com/balancing-electrolytes-blood-pressure-and-sole-water-recipe/
💡If anything, removing all processed vegetable oils, added sugars and packaged carbs. Removing these basics can go a long way.
