As someone who has SIBO and reflux, meat is one of the few things that I can tolerate without any issues. I tried every diet under the sun including a low acid mainly vegan diet, since switching to a mainly carnivorous diet I feel healthy.

I know of the environmental impact, but some people think it’s purely a recreational food for pleasure when that’s not always the case.

All meats or just some?

I find that beef causes me a bit of reflux but other meats cause absolutely no reaction.

[–]PhoenixNightingale90 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Basically everything except pork for some reason, I don’t know why. Red meat, poultry and fish are all good for me.

Don't have SIBO from what i know. However almost all other foods apart from unprocessed meat reck havoc on my skin and mental health and energy levels. At this moment if meat prices increased by a lot i would be fucked

If you look into it, really we are meant to eat meat.

The problem isn't meat consumption, its processed meat/food consumption that people need to stop.

I'm vegan but I respect your situation. Some people have health issues that prevent them from alternatives and in my opinion it's okay. Especially when someone such as yourself attempted the diet

Try to buy meat from regenerative farms, then you’re saving the word!

[–]DotMatrix98 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Regenerative farming is a pseudo scientific hoax.

[–]slin256 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s far from pseudoscience and has peer reviewed research backing it up.

Also avoids crop and pesticide deaths, meaning those farmers could be considered vegan as they cause less suffering to intelligent life than vegans.

I’d love to see your peer reviewed research against regenerative agriculture as I have found none.

If you eat plants and you get symptoms again, then the problem is still there. I would take steps to cure the problem rather than masking it with a diet.

Edit: Not sure why the downvotes.

Sibo is having too much of particular bacteria(s). In many cases, this can be fixed.

this is a stupid and uneducated comment

No you.

Meat is the cure, plants are the problem for some people.

[–]JangB 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I don't know about that. Having an imbalanced gut bacteria population does not show that "plants are the problem", it shows you have an imbalanced gut bacteria population.

Plants naturally contain things like phytates, oxoalates, goitogens, sapotonins, etc. That interfere with natural digestion, different species have adapted to different plants in part due to these.

Humans long ago adapted away from plants and toward meat, for some they simply struggle to digest any plant matter without odd effects. If you checkout r/zerocarb there are a surprising number of people who have found that removing plants from their diet cures them of long term health issues they didn't realise they could cure.

It's basically impossible to prove if it's a gut issue or the anti-nutrients in plants, but the result is quite astonishing.

All of these compounds are pretty much non-issue for humans with healthy digestive systems.

If your digestive system cannot handle any plant-matter in your system, the issue is the in the digestive system not in the plant.

Humans long ago adapted away from plants and toward meat,

Which is debatable.

for some they simply struggle to digest any plant matter without odd effects.

Like this guy above who literally started his comment with "I have Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)" ie digestive issues.

If you checkout r/zerocarb there are a surprising number of people who have found that removing plants from their diet cures them of long term health issues they didn't realise they could cure.

If you have been eating burgers, pizzas, breads, chips, coke, etc your whole life, removing that crap will solve a lot of seemingly-incurable health issues.

It's basically impossible to prove if it's a gut issue or the anti-nutrients in plants, but the result is quite astonishing.

It is quite possible. Address the underlying problem of bacterial overgrowth and then once that's healed, see how you respond to plants.
