Overcoming intolerance to Oysters

Commented on April 01, 2014

I always had trouble with clams, mussels, octopus and oysters - yesterday I had 5 fresh oysters hoping I would finally be able to digest them after 5 months of pretty strictly eating paleo... even had some apple cider vinegar just before it to get some extra acid into the stomach.

Result: felt great at first but then stomach pain set in after a couple hours which made me have some pepto bismol. Felt energetic in the morning so I believe I actually digested all that zinc (that's the main reason why I'd like to be able to eat oysters).

No other food intolerances or allergies.

For months I fried a small oyster with a strip of bacon for breakfast every day. Sometimes I'd chop the oyster into an egg and cook a small omelet with the bacon. Never any stomach problems.

There are other sources of zinc. Red meat?

With food intolerance you want to introduce the foods in small quantities. So why not have 1 oyster every few days at first or one of the other troubled seafood items.
