Tired of eating meat, anyone else?

What to do when meat is losing its appeal??

I have never really been a fan of red meat, actually never had a taste for it except for ground beef. I've been paleo for 11 months and lately I notice I'll skip a meal altogether (usually lunch) and munch on veggies or dried fruit and nuts b/c the thought of another meal w red meat does nothing for my appetite. I cook it in many different ways and using different spices, but it's still meat. Aside from red meat, I get protein from eggs, fish, and chicken.
Am I alone? Any suggestions?

I second this. I've been playing with reduced protein intake. I feel pretty good with it. It's interesting to cut back because you get to feel what a meat craving feels like. I think I'm going to end up a day-to-day Vegetarian who gorges on a giant plate of meat 2x a week. LOL

Haha, no kidding! I AM kind of tired of eating so much meat, but only because I have to keep going and spending money on it instead of just eating the food my family eats.

I just saw your post and the responses. Doing a few weeks of straight seafood sounds appealing and will hopefully prove to be the solution!

Only if it's too cooked. Red meat is just paradise to me.

Learn to cook and the same piece of food will look and taste different, the use of herbs ( French) or spices ( turk, indian, island) changes the dish and you will not get burnt out. Learning to cook changed everything, it saves money and is healthier as I know the ingredients. Also learn to Braise, pan fry and boil.

I feel you a little bit. I'm not a big meat guy, and find myself adding a lot more fish into my diet. I also add plenty of sweet potatoes into my diet, and get a good amount of my calories from carbs(150g a day). But in general, if you don't like meat, you can incorporate more fruit, veggies, tubers, nuts, avocado, coconut, and healthy oils to get a good amount of your calories. Just be sure to keep your calories at a reasonable number. My daily average of protein is only 15%, and I am active and very lean. In my opinion over doing it on protein is overrated.

My answer is pork: Tenderloin. Chops. Ribs. Roast. Belly.

Find a local farmer and buy yourself a pig. It's very economical and you can find a farmer who does it the right way.

If I had enough money I would eat mostly meat. Uhm, wait... I don't have but I still eat mostly meat:). And I remember I didn't eat any meat throughout most of my life before paleo. I used to say that I hate it's taste but now I just simple love it.

Eat fruit, veggies, sweet potatoes, and anything else that's healthful. Jimmy Moore interviewed Mat Lelonde recently, and Mat's opinion as I understood it was that even a full vegetarian would be basically fine (if probably not very strong) so long as they stick to paleo foods. Of course it sounds like your good with seafood too, so you're really good to go. Relax and avoid the bad stuff.

I think it's a great question, and I struggle with the same. Paleo is really a rough go for those of us who don't love meat and/or fat. Will go check out the similar posting.
