Okay, I just caught the tail end of this, so I don't know if this applies to all types of meat (like chicken, turkey, etc.), but Dr. Oz is on Oprah today and he just stated that when you eat fruits and veggies, those are digested and out of your system within 12 hours. When you eat a 'steak dinner,' the steak takes up to 3 days to entirely get ouf of our system AND get this...meat has to literally rot in your digestive system before it is gotten rid of. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley11.gif That is downright disgusting!! I do like meat, but I am having serious issues with this...http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

He did say that he doesn't believe in colonics and all of that jazz because IF you're eating the fight foods, your body will cleanse itself.

Well, that seals it for me. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifDH and I were grocery shopping the other day and I told him, "I think I'm going to go quasi-vegetarian".

He's like, "so how would that be any different than you eat now?" http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifGood point.

I'll eat some seafood (I love tuna), white meat chicken/turkey, and about the only red meat I eat is ground. Sometimes steak, but I can't even remember the last time we made steak. We're living poor right now. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley9.gif

I always feel really full & heavier on the rare occasion that I eat meat. 3 days is a really really long time.

I'll just stick to my chicken, fish & turkey thank you! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley17.gif

Stanley Burroughs talks about that in the Master Cleanse book. See when I was talking about going veg ya'll laughed at me, but Dr. Oz says on Oprah and ya'll listen! The power of that woman!smileys/smiley36.gif
Seriously though, that's why I can't get 100% down with BFFM as far as eating meat 5-6 times a day...bleck! I get most of my protein from shakes anyway, the rest is fruits and veggies mostly. Oh, and egg whites. Here, I'll post the except about meat here in a sec:Edited by: FV Mom

Here's the except (keep in mind that he isa raw foodist, however the info on meat is very interesting)

************************************************** **************

There is a sodium coating covering the entire inside wall of the stomach, which, if it remains intact, will prevent the digestive juices from digesting the stomach itself. However, when any form of flesh food enters the stomach, the meat attracts the sodium in the same way as the walls of the stomach. Some of the sodium is drawn from the walls and gathers around the meat, thus preventing the digestion of the meat in the stomach and at the same time depleting the sodium on the walls of the stomach.
As one continues to eat meat and a deficiency of sodium in the diet occurs, the sodium lining is not being replaced on the walls of the stomach. The digestive juices then start digesting the stomach, producing what we call an ulcer. When this occurs, all orthodox methods to heal the ulcer fail completely.
Sometimes the meat can remain in the stomach for two or more hours and begin to ferment and spoil. To be broken down and digested it must pass on into the small intestine. All forms of meat take longer to digest than fruit and vegetables do. Chicken and other fowl take the longest of all. Just because meat is already a form of flesh, it does not follow that it is readily usable by our bodies. In fact, just the reverse is true.
When one considers that flesh foods of all kinds are extremely toxic, it becomes apparent that they are an extremely undesirable form of nourishment. In the eating of meat, one must take into account all of our eliminative organs. They are made primarily to take care of our own wastes. When we add animal flesh, containing the wastes of its cells (or drugs and other unusable material), extra work is required of these organs and various forms of trouble will eventually develop.
Remember that all solid food must be broken down into a liquid form to be carried by the blood before it can nourish the body. Flesh foods of all kinds (including fish) take much longer to reach this state and are less useful to the body than fruit, vegetable, and seeds.

I've pretty much elimated all meat except for egg whites from my diet. I supplement with Whey protein (Jay Robb brand) to "fill in the gaps" and I tell you what, it's like night and day. All my embarrasing tummy issues disapeared almost overnight!http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif

You don't necessarly have to eat meat to be successful at BFFM. I know you're not much of chicken & fish eater either, huh?

Egg whites are top notch when it comes to protein. Legumes & beans also have good vegetarian protein in them as well as fiber.I know of many people (bodybuilders & fitness models)that follow the BFFM nutrition guidelines and are having awesome success with it.

Oh, no doubt its a great plan, I was just saying that I personally couldn't get down with eating that much meathttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley11.gifI lasted for like 4 days like that and got sooo sick it's not even funny.http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley5.gif

Yeah... there are some people that can't tolerate that much meat. But there are other sources like the ones I mentioned above.

It doesn't matter though, I know that you eat good & healthy, so if it aint broke, don't fix it! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

I think he said that on her show sometime last year and I stopped eating red meat for like 6 months http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifand then I got tempted by some steak. But as I've posted, no more red meat in this house and we've been doing real well for the past couple weeks. We're gettin' REAL creative with the turkey! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif
