hi, i have some g.i stuff going on - h pylori, bit of yeast, dysbiosis (lps in blood) but no antibodies to gut barrier proteins yet thankfully. stool testing shows i can process animal protein ok.

anyway, aware of importance of chewing food - does it aid or hinder protein absorption if i blend cooked meats in a food proccesser? just makes it eaiser/faster to eat. kind of lazy but it can take me an hour to eat a meal otherwise with all the chewing of meat. worried that the blending is some how hampering protein absorption/weight gain.

How much ARE you chewing your meat if it takes that long??? It makes me wonder if 1) you are OCD, or 2) you are eating way too much meat if it takes you an hour to eat a meal.

Why not try some ground beef crumbled (not in a patty) and lightly cooked and chew normally? Add plenty of fat and bone broth so it's moist.

I don't know that there's a problem with purée meat per se, but you lose the chance to get a lot of digestive enzymes going if it goes through your digestive tract too quickly.
