Title: Only eating organ meats?
Post by: primal tyler on October 29, 2020, 09:11:04 pm
Anyone ever try this? Could I run into issues with copper/zinc/iron ratios replacing muscle meat with beef heart? I can’t find any local source of grass fed muscle meats that are affordable so I’ve been eating organs and loads of suet.

no, typically I get turned off by them after a bit and then let them sit in glass in the fridge until I want it again

Your body is supposed to find homeostasis and you pass the rest, often through diarrhea as your body doesn't want to extra nutrients. That said this is usually in reasonable amounts and not as your only meat source.

I'd caution against an all organ approach. Things are ideally approached with a real-world ratio. If you took an animal down you would get one heart, one liver, etc. You would gorge on these first then sustain yourself on the muscle meat and fat until the next successful hunt. The high fat ratio will help but I wouldn't trust my body to limit uptake when it has no other options offered. I think the "Instincto" approach is sound in that you won't want to eat them when your body has enough.

I have tried eating only organs in the past, and it seemed to work, at least temporarily. I don't know of anything that's present exclusively in muscle meat that you would need, but it is always best to try and eat as much of the animal as possible (various muscles, organs, fats, blood etc...). You can experiment with it and see how your body reacts. If problems do occur, you can always add some muscle meat as well. Heart is technically a muscle, although I can imagine there being certain benefits to different cuts of muscle as well.
