Do any of you have problems with red meat? I think I have noticed a pattern with my IBS, and I suspect that red meat is one of my major trigger foods.Just curious if anybody else has experienced any problems.Thanks.Deirdre

This is my first time on the board. I have experienced the same problem with red meats. I gave up red meats over a year ago. (I have eaten pork in over 15 years.) It has made a big difference... But IBS is still a very INTRICATE part of my life!! Are you also lactose intolerant?!

I also find that red meat is a trigger! I love steak but I haven't had any since I made the discovery in Jan. I do miss it but it is not worth the pain. I also can't eat pork, wheat, milk (unless it is lactose free), lettuce, onions (I miss onion rings!), and most fried foods. I have noticed an overall improvement in my quality of life. I still have IBS but not as bad.[This message has been edited by Zenovia (edited 10-19-2001).]

For me, meat has a tendancy to act like garlic. After digestion, the "taste chemicals" go back into my mouth for the next day or two. I even have a problem with the 98% fat-free ground beef my local store offers. Lean beef that is not ground has the added effect of causing bubbly colon spasms (although producing no changes in D or C).[This message has been edited by AD (edited 10-19-2001).]

Very interesting. I don't think I'm lactose intolerant, but really the only milk I'll drink in a day is in my coffee. I'm trying a red-meat-free diet for a while to see if it helps. Thanks for your input.

Hi,I can eat ground red meat, but not solid! I can't figure that out. If I have a hamburger (even McDonald's!!!) I'm fine. If I make a stew, grill a steak (even without seasoning), or anything with unground beef I pay for it with D the next day.Strange!Fiona
