Default My protein w/out meat situation...

An update on that. I have done lots of research and have talked to my Dr. I am doing great with getting all the nutrients I need, the protein and all of the other things that come with the meat.

It has been that meat just repulses me,. was at neuro the other day he says sounds like a bad gallbladder to him. I have had all the testing for that, negative, he says tests aren't always right, and I know that.

So.. last night dd was eating a rib eye left over from the 4th and I took a bite. It didn't bother me, didn't make me sick, and I thought it tasted ok. However, I did not want anymore. I went about eating 'my food'

I just think it is a change that the Lord has put infront of me. I will go with it. I like it, and health wise, I am doing so much better. No more Migraines, no more RA or FM flares. Doing good. Exercising and loving it.....

Love you guys!

Congratulations! This sounds great! I'm so glad you're feeling better & migraines & flares are gone! Good for you.

More than 6-mos ago, I lost my desire for poultry & red meat. I still eat some fish, but much less than before - about once every 2-wks. I just don't crave it. Don't know why but, like you, I'm just going with the message that my body's giving me. I'm spending a lot less on food, so it's a benefit all the way around. I haven't felt a big health benefit yet (as in migraines), but I'm still sticking with it & it will come.

Good news for both of us. Can't get better than that... VV

hopefully she's taking a multivitamin.

i would also recommend supplementing with creatine, since creatine also only comes from meat

Widely known for it muscle-building benefits, creatine, it appears, has much more to offer than its erogenic properties. Researchers Wyss and Schulze looked at the broader health implications of creatine as they tried to determine its value in treat[ing] several neurodegenerative, vascular and muscular disorders 15.

Their findings, published in the prestigious Neuroscience, showed creatine to be an extremely important neuroprotectant (an agent that increases the survival of nerve cells to environmental insults).

Energy metabolism and the production of Reactive Oxygen Species (very small molecules that can result in significant damage to cell structures, of which include oxygen ions, free radicals and peroxides) are thought to underpin many nuerodegenerative disorders, and creatine is thought to enhance the brains ability to survive the metabolic and physical trauma associated with these conditions.

It was found by Wyss and colleagues that those with neurodegenerative disorders associated with creatine deficiencies (inborn errors in creatine production and storage) may require supplemental creatine, in order for it to be more effectively delivered to the central nervous system.

Additionally, Ray and colleagues found creatine to improve brain function (specifically short-term memory) in normal subjects 11. In a placebo controlled cross-over design study, 45 vegetarian and vegan subjects (chosen as their intake of creatine was negligible) took five grams per day of creatine for six weeks.

After this period, all subjects were assessed on non-verbal intelligence and verbal memory capacity. It was found that subjects who took creatine rather than the placebo exhibited improved short-term memory, and were better able to problem solve under time constraints. Significantly, the researchers said:

"Supplementation with creatine significantly increased intelligence compared with the placebo."

I am taking a multi vitamin, as well as others. I have to be careful with the creatinine, because of the meds I take and my liver function. I will discuss that with my Rheumatologist when I go this month.

I plan on meeting with a nutritionist, and today I am going to GNC to see whats up in there.

Who knows about Omega 3 ...should I be taking that?
