Paleo Diet… too much meat?


I’ve been trying to do Paleo when I have the energy, but my LLMD said that it actually proposes too much meat and that I should read the book called “The China Study”.  She also suggested I watch the documentary called “Forks over Knives” which is available on Netflix for those who have access.  To be honest, I didn’t get past the first couple of minutes because it was a bit of a scare tactic about the typical US diet.  I hate that approach.  When I have more patience, I’ll sit and watch it through.  Maybe this weekend.

So, is it too much meat?  Or is it just a different opinion like all of the other diets floating around out there?  Or, maybe it’s specific to each person in that maybe it’s too much meat for one person, but fine for another?

    Check out the TQI (To Quiet Inflamation) diet. As described in the diet, any red meat might be too much. I noticed a big pain reduction after only two weeks.

    Have you heard of Myer’s cocktails (IVs) to help you get essential vitamins to speed up recovery? Could be very helpful, especially since your digestion must be poor with all your food sensitivies.

    There is a Lyme petition at the following address:

    The petition will only be up until 2/10/13, and we need 25,000 signatures for the White House to review and respond.

    This is the best chance for raising Lyme awareness I have seen, so please spread the word!
