So, I grew up like most Australian families having lamb roasts, lamb chops and cutlets a few times a month and loving it, but about 15 years ago I found I could no longer eat lamb without encountering severe stomach cramps and the prospect of spending the evening on and off the toilet. As a result I’ve been avoiding it ever since (much to my wife’s disappointment).
Not sure if it would be classed as an allergy as such, as I don’t get tingling lips, hayfever symptoms, rashes or breathing difficulites…maybe it would be more accurately classed as an intolerance. (also it’s worth noting that I’ve never been bitten by a tick which has been known to cause meat allergies)
Does anyone else have lamb or other meat allergies/intolerances?
Anyway, it’s been 10 years or so since I’ve had lamb, so I decided after being 2 months on keto that I was going to try lamb again (because y’know, keto’s a cure-all for everything right? j/k). So I had a lamb chop, it was delicious, I did have some mild stomach discomfort etc but nothing major like the past. I guess only one chop isn’t a good indicator, but I will probably try a lamb roast over the next month and see if my body has had any sort of change via keto that might affect my lamb intolerance. Will report back when I do…
Wish me luck!
