I am a 66 year old female with HCV, gluten intolerance and dentures. I've been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 40 years. Would Paleo be beneficial or even doable for me?

Yeah i'll be totally honest here, I did NOT make the connection that HCV was hepatitis C.. for some reason I was thinking it was something else entirely. So yeah, you're right don't eat liver. But the paleo thing is really simple. How is it that cutting out foods with tons of antinutrients like dairy (except grass fed butter and ghee), legumes, and grains and replacing it with high nutrient and energy dense meats and veggies a bad thing for someone? Paleo = template for everyone to tweak based on their needs. ;)

He is making broad generalizations which are just not true. Claiming "paleo is good for everyone" , "you can only get healthier on a paleo diet", "get off the dairy, there's no reason to eat it". This was too much bullshit at once for me to cope with.

Okay, Bukowski, but do you have a clue or do you just not like Zach? Some serious input would help me.

Zach, thanks for your answer. But how is Paleo, especially eating liver, beneficial to someone with Hepatitis C and considerable liver fibrosis?

If a compromised liver, as with Hepatitis C cannot process iron, why are you recommending eating liver?

I think that you can be healthy on lacto-ovo. There has to be a lot of grass fed butter and pastured eggs, but very doable. The problem with vegetarians is that they end up eating a lot of grains, specifically wheat.

You can't deny the fact that paleo is good for everyone. You can only get healthier on a paleo diet. Just make sure you cook your meat well, and cook your veggies well. Also get off the dairy, there's no reason to eat it. And like someone said make sure you start eating liver as soon as possible. I cut mine into tiny pieces and then freeze it and pop it like pills to get it down. Good luck! and post on here if you get stuck, we're always here to help!

Doable? Benefiical? Absolutely. As long as you're willing to put the work in and stick it out during the transition phase (which will be much, much different from what you're used to) you WILL reap the rewards.

It's never too late. Beneficial? Yes.

You may want to start eating liver as soon as possible.
