beef doesn't change my blood sugar hardly at all. Even if you eat tons

I've eaten exactly 1 lb of beef since my heart attack last April. Two
8 oz steaks at two different times. One of the cardiologists who
treated me at the hospital said to limit red meat, I guess I took him
too seriously. My main cardiologist is much more lenient, and thinks
I've gone overboard eating so little red meat but I've found that I
don't miss beef at all.
I'm convinced that red meat blocks up our colon if eaten regularly. I dont
think this from reading about it, I think this because of my own personal
IBS condition. After a barium enema (wont go into details here!), the
consultant found a blockage in my colon and pulled it out - my IBS went
away. On speaking to him about the foreign body he pulled out, he said it
looked like a piece of meat that had attached itself to the wall of my
colon. How long it had been there was a mystery. But I had suffered with
IBS (which used to called "spastic colon") since I was around 5 years old up
to mid 20's, when I had the enema.
I still eat red meat, but not often - maybe once a fortnight.
Since my dx I'm right into oily fish (especially mackerel - yum) and copious
amounts of green salad with it. I eat chicken regularly and will have the
odd bit of lamb or pork, but only occasionally.
I'm veering towards vegetarianism - as I love the thought of eating plant
protein as opposed the potential "colon-clinging animal flesh" we consume.
But that's my own pesonal opinion on the matter, guys!!
