Anemia and CD

S: 15st4lb C: 11st7lb G: 10st0lb BMI: 27.6 Loss: 3st11lb(24.77%)
Hi All,

I have been on CD since Feb and have lost nearly 4st now - which is ace, however I have developed Anemia :cry: My doctor has said to put some red meat into my diet as the body absorbs the animal iron quickest and easily and also stick to my green veg....but I am right in thinking red meat isnt allowed??

I have tried calling my CDC but she is away - gah!!!

red meat is not one of the foods included in the lower plans , but I would do as your Dr says just to get your iron levels up again .... it is not worth risking your health over , you are no good skinny but ill .... include some lean red meat for a week or 2 ( you may stay in ketosis as its still protein ) then see if your Dr will give you any iron tablets , then you can get back on to SS

Definitely follow your doctors advice, so its not allowed on SS+ you have to look after your health. It might be worth switching to something a little bit different until you get your health situation resolved and then coming back to CD
