When a mainstream doctor says reduce red meat intake, they're usually talking about red meat that's laced with hormones and antibiotics. I assume that you don't eat that kind. I feel comfortable with 7 portions of red meat per week because it's organic and not "tainted." Of course I've never had a colonoscopy so I can't comment on the results yet.

BTW I love your blog and eat very similarly to you (I'm O+ non secretor, probably gatherer).

Thank you for this blog....I have the same issue. Seems to be genetic. I am now having colonoscopies every 3 yrs. I also wonder if there is a dietary strategy such as avoiding red meat that would help. I may just try reducing it to twice a week, even though I eat mostly grassfed beef. I do drink alcohol and may cut back severely. Again, thanks, and good luck, and keep any ideas coming. I, too, will continue researching.

Suzanne, my SWAMI gives me more than twice the amount of fish as either red meat or poultry. I get 7 servings of fish per week and only 3 servings per week of both red meat and poultry. Many others on the forum have this proportion of fish to meat as well. I posted a thread on it with a poll.

Why don't you try eating more fish and cutting back your red meat to 3 servings or less per week. I feel great on the fish, fish, fish!

Hi Suzanne,

Sorry to hear about your ailment.

This is what Dr. D. posted in the forum about grains for us Hunters:

"Grain and legumes are about the only sources of phytates, which are anti-oxidant mineral chelators. There are pros and cons to phytates (some people would argue that they block mineral absorption) but they do have fairly potent anti-cancer effects in the colon, which in the case of GT1 Hunters is a bit of an Achilles heal."

This is the thread: http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1228587567/s-43/#num43

Although some hunters, per Swami, are allowed some grains containing gluten eg. spelt, I have found out that the main difference for me between the BTD and hunter diet was the avoidance of gluten. You may want to consider allowed hunter grains vs. BTD grains as you incorcorate grains back into your diet.

Hope your ailment gets solved non agresively.

Regards,
Susana
