Eating beef = Stomach aches ???

Answered on August 19, 2014

I've been eating Paleo for about three or so months and I'm overall pleased with the results. But I've noticed a pattern and kind of confused by it...As of late every time I eat beef (usually for dinner) I wake up the next day to an upset stomach that feels like it's on fire!!! The pain stays for the better part of the day...Sometimes I have diarrhea associated with it but not always..does this mean I'm allergic to beef? I've never had this problem before and it's only started since eating Paleo...does anyone know why this could be??

Yeah, the blood type diet is BS. If you don't produce enough bile, steatorrhea would be present. If the fat is being absorbed, then by definition there should be enough bile. The stomach pains could just be something else as well (trapped gas, acid reflux, gallstones, chronic pancreatitis, etc), not necessarily bile insufficiency in every case.

It doesn't really "open up issues", it often just makes a lot of people become hypochondriacs and obsess about things that aren't really there....like meat allergy which is extremely uncommon. Beef allergy by itself is almost nonexistent as an allergy to beef would also imply an allergy to other mammal meat as well, such as pork, lamb, goat, and even whale meat since many proteins across mammals are shared. Don't worry you'll be fine, you just have to be aware that a lot of people on Paleo or other health blogs are hypochondriacs who believe they are allergic to just about anything.

The Blood Type diet has been debunked, it's not science. If you're experiencing pain when eating fats, you're probably not producing enough bile. You might want to take a Betaine HCL-Oxbile digestive enzyme before each meal, or at least one with lipase.

I wonder why this is that Paleo can open up issues? Ugh--Pandora's Box! But I suppose the trade off is worth it? I'm only 13 days in...

Do you think that blood type matters when it comes to a successful Paleo diet? I'm A+ and surely hope I'm not doomed! My tummy has been ok on stuff except high fat--then there's an ache.

I'm allergic to beef and I get the same thing (minus the fire), but I'd suggest you first remove it from your diet and give yourself some time to heal (eat chicken, fish, pork in rotation).

Then when you feel well enough to potentially take a few steps backwards, try introducing some beef in your diet. They say you should eat it 3 times a day for 3 days (size of your palm) when introducing things back in to test for allergies.

You'll know if you get the same reaction, but it can take up to 3 days. I still try every year and I react within 12 hours to it.

Hopefully its just a digestive issue and nothing more. If thats the case, try rotating your meats so you don't eat the same protein too often.

best of luck and feel better!!!

(sometimes going paleo opens you up to undiscovered issues you didnt know you had...meaning eating clean can cause you to react to things you never reacted to before)

Blood type. I'm an O and I never get a stomach ache from beef.
