Tiredness and laziness after eating beef (even grass-fed)

It seems after eating steak, ground beef, or any muscle meat from cattle (even grass-fed) I get brain fogged and tired for 2 hours on the dot. It doesn't happen when eating lamb or venison. Anyone else? Anyone know why?

no idea. does it happen with things like pork, chicken, etc? I suppose the simplest thing is just avoid beef. No biggy, lots of dead animals out there to choose from.

any kind, anywhere. Even the best local grass fed beef, and also commercial grain fed.

Does beef from multiple sources effect you like this?

Consider supplementing hcl for a while to aid in protein digestion.

What are you eating with the beef? I know it sounds strange but two things could be working together to give you this effect. I mean, if you eat different meats with the same carb, or whatever else, each time I would eliminate whatever the carb, or whatever, is and then eat the beef to see if the result is the same. Process of elimination can really narrow it down for you. I <3 food science :)

Try fattier cuts of meat, and add some quality sea salt to every meal. That'll help digestion. You can eat coconut during meals too, it's great for vitamin absorption.
