sudden aversion to meat

So first off, I don't like seafood or pork. I used to love love love read meat but now the smell of it makes me wanna yak. Oh and I fear chicken. always afraid it wont be cooked well enough and I will get sick. I do love chicken wings with franks hot sauce and i eat eggs and bacon. Other than that, I have been eating saleds.

So like

3 eggs and 3 pieces of bacon
spring mix saled with low carb dressing (no toppings cause I am lazy)
franks hot wings
lots of water

sometimes my saleds have toppings like some cheese or eggs or a couple of olives and maybe some ham but that takes time

so I am wondering if there is something for me to worry about here. Should I be taking in more fat or something? And this is really what I have been eating everyday. Tonight I forced myself to eat some steak and green beans. I figure I will get bored and eventually eat something else. One problem I have is that most of my meals like portabello mushroom pizza and stuff have tomatos and those seem to be a trigger food for me. I have cravings for hours after eating tomatos.

Hi

Well - you may get some differant opinions but let me say this, I too can yak at the sight sound of meat sometimes. Even chicken. I was a vegetarian for years and slowly came around to fish and chicken. Still do not eat steak, roast beef, ect. And if I see red in the egg yoke, forget it. Also, if i see a hair on a chicken wing, I could yak too! lol

I say stick with what you are comfortable with - maybe try some egg whites for lean protein if you see you are not eating enough protein. You may be able to eventually get some yogurt or cottage cheese in your diet?

I think if you search under poster Ta-Da, she is a semi vegetarian who does Atkins. Get some ideas from her?

Good luck

PS: Do you like ground turkey? That may be an option to bulk cook and stach in the fridge. Great over salads or rolled in ettuce leaves.

[COLOR="DarkOrchid"]Hey, Jmac! How sudden is your aversion to meat? I had the same thing happen to me, but I was pregnant. I don't think it's something to worry about. Between the bacon, the cheese, the olives and salad dressing your fat intake should be okay. [/COLOR]

For convenience,my husband eats the precooked frozen hamber pattys.I let them thaw out over night & nuke them for 1 1/2 minutes.They are always fully cooked & you don't have the raw-to-cooked smell that I find unpleasant.

I find them in most grocery stores.Just make sure to read the label & find 100% beef.

I think it's normal to go through peroids of yakking at meat for some people. I cook ground turkey at home or beef for the family and can't stand the smell. Other times it tastes yummy.........(?)

The body is a very mysterious thing...

I really really WANT to eat dark meat poultry. I try reeeeeally hard to eat it, mostly because dark meat chicken is so much cheaper than white meat and we're on a budget. I'll make up these lavish preparations for it and then sit down and eat it. 10 minutes later, I will vomit. No thought processes. No fear. Just plain rejection. And I've done this for as long as I can remember, so it's not because of pregnancy for me (not pregnant right now and never have been).

I'd think it was some kind of allergy, but I eat chicken wings fine as long as they've got something on them (buffalo sauce, faux breading, tequila-lime marinade). Legs and thighs are another story though.

So I'm curious about this phenomenon as well.

I have a friend who is allergic to all things poultry. We have to make sure we don't even use chicken broth in the meals that he eats.

Re: Friend Allergic to Chicken and Broth

Have you considered that your friend might be allergic to MSG? Broth is loaded with it. Even MSG "free" versions contain "natural flavors, spices, etc," that are often hidden forms of MSG. I got educated about MSG (and its aliases) due to my daughter having migraines. Almost all chicken at restaurants is marinated in MSG to make it tender and tasty. Poultry at supermarkets is often soaked in or injected with broth. Google: MSG..and see if there is a connection to your friends problem.

Bacon, eggs, wings are all relatively high in fat.

I'd be worried about eventual boredom ... but that's just me.

You'll go through stages like this.....Your menu looks just fine....eggs, olives, cheese, veggies and butter....I can live off of that menu with some ground beef thrown in here and there. I generally only eat meat once a day.
