For me I get tired of eating the same thing over and over again. So I tend to go through phases of eating different meats and vegetables.

Kresser has been talking about it quite a bit, finding that around 30% of his patients have excess iron (IIRC).

Not true. I've had whole weeks of just eating sliced meats - leg of lamb, or steak, or roast bison. Never got bored, never got sick of, just didn't want to eat any veggies, sort of an anti-craving. I still crave meat over veggies, but tend to eat them too.

Yeah, usually just effects the elderly, but fair point +1

What kind of red meat? Veal, pork, lamb, beef? Chicken with food colouring?

Wrapping oneself in bacon. Taking a jug of bone broth to the gym. Strange obsession with spears . . .

Side effects include: Feeling awesome, enjoying every meal, and looking like a sexy beast.

Yes.

There are risks to everything. Your job in life is to weight them up against the risks of taking an alternative path (including inaction, which is often the riskiest path of all).

There is certainly some bad shit going on with factory farmed processed meats, but you can minimize your exposure to these by trying to source good quality meat from reputable suppliers. Any meat is probably going to be better for you than a diet largely based on grain and other refined carbohydrates.

Like Kurt Harris says:" "If you have the choice, why choose corn or potatoes over meat?""

Iron overload? Particularly since we reduce phytate levels in our food as well.

I hope not! Seriously, as long as you are eating grass fed meat I would say that the answer is no. See Gary Taubes book Good Calories, Bad Calories page 454. He lists 10 bullet points. Several cover the fact that saturated meat is not the problem. If you are still unsure, read the first 453 pages where he lays out a well referenced case to make those claims.

Weight gain because it is sooooo tasty?

I'd say "NO".

Yes it will get very boring and you might lose a taste for it.
