All meat diet - question about macadamias

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 10, 2012 at 10:28 AM

Sorry about another stupid question, but here it goes...

I am currently on all-meat diet due to SIBO bacteria reduction. I have just finished my antibiotics and I am doing surprisingly well on my all meat diet. If somebody told me that even six month ago I would strongly advised against it... but I am doing it now and I feel fabulous.

I do have some questions:

  1. I cannot get any good fatty cuts. I cannot tolerate olive and coconut oil. I am fine with beef fat, but it is hard to find fatty cuts. Is it okay if I don't eat too much fat?

  2. How long is it safe to stay on all-meat diet?

  3. I have strange cravings for macadamia nuts. Yesterday I bought some and I was fine after eating them. I know they are high in omega 6. Is it okay to eat them on all-meat diet?

  4. What do I do about constipation? I have tried carrot juice - it is not working. I even tried rhubarb. Please don't tell me magnesium citrate - it does not work for me, even in high doses. Food sources only please.

Thank you very much.

ShaBam is correct, an all meat diet works for some people including PH members Ambimorph and Rose. And for the record I am not a groupie of Kamal's.

@ VB Depending on the cut you might get milage in slow cooking in bulk. Reven if a 'leaner' cut if there is a strip of fat it will definitley be edible after a day of simmering/ boiling ;)

I can't stand to eat fat either. Not fat attached to meat anyway. I'm a flank steak woman all the way. Cooking some right now. I just try to add some fat after cooking. Can you do ghee (easy to make yourself)? I find duck fat at Whole Foods if you have access. I'm sure you know this but many eat meat only for very long periods (Like Rose and Amber here) They have done it for years and are in great health and have controlled their respective health issues well with this diet. If you are on Facebook there are some groups doing ZC that may be good support for you.

What about salmon - a high omega 3 and fatty fish. I'd suggest plenty of oily fish and seafood for minerals and omega 3, not just meat. Also add in liver and organ meats for nutrients, even brains of grassfed meat if you can find it. Bone marrow too and bone broth. Also what about juiced vegetables for nutrients, or even green smoothies if you tolerate the fibre

Thanks, I will try to find some source of fat. The meat I eat have some fat in it, but it is impossible to eat - I have tried. I will look for duck fat.

Correct, you're not going to find a study that's trying to induce harm, but a case study on a patient ate until rabbit starvation should be about there, particularly if it's a concern worth having.

A review of high protein diets in humans - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16779921 . You probably won't find many clinical studies for >35% calories from protein because that might not pass an ethical review board.

I wonder if you could point out any modern and documented examples of rabbit starvation in the medical literature. It sounds nearly impossible to induce - high protein, malnutrition, stress... I would think nearly any commercial meat has enough fat to avoid it.

Relatively to other nuts the pufa content in macadamias is negligble...

More fat may help with the constipation. Can you get lard or tallow, duck fat, bacon fat? You might ask where you get your meat. You can order it online if need be.

Glad you are feeling better. All meat seems to work really well for some people.

  1. Not a good idea to exclusively eat very lean meat:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabbit_starvation
    You could just add some 80/20 or 85/15 ground beef or lamb to your diet.
  2. Indefinitely:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vilhjalmur_Stefansson#Low-carbohydrate_diet_of_meat_and_fish
  3. Macadamia nuts are not made out of meat.
  4. No reason to believe that an all meat diet causes constipation. Give your bowels time to adjust to a lower fiber intake and relax. I think it should take care of itself. You obviously won't have nearly as much volume to your stool. I would guess frequency will go down also. I personally don't think once a day is an absolute requirement. I think the key is to not stress out about it.
