Body Odor & Bad Breath
It’s possible that any bad breath or body odor symptoms are signs that your body isn’t digesting your intake of red meat properly. When this happens, your digestive system emits a bad odor and it leaves the body through your breath and skin.
Always Feeling Hungry?
Eating a diet too high in protein can lead to feeling hungry whether you’ve eaten or not. Serotonin is the chemical that regulates how hungry you feel. If you aren’t balancing protein with carbs, your blood sugar levels may cause you to feel hungry too often.
Quick tip: If you’re hungry all the time, try cutting out the meat for a few days. At the same time, try hummus or berries with Greek yogurt as a substitute.
Weakened Immune System
There is a natural sugar in red meat that your body has difficulty digesting. It’s called Neu5Gc and it often sets in motion a weakened immune system and can lead to many problems. One of these problems is possibly cancer. Quick tip: If you continue eating red meat, you can offset Neu5Gc by eating fruit, quinoa, green veggies and nuts. This will increase your levels of protein, antioxidants and fiber.
