Re: Cramps from Red Meat?
Hello, According to the original post...You get cramps from homemade hamburger, but not beef pot roast or other meats? This also sounds like you're saying that fast food hamburgers have no affect either, because you point out that the hamburgers are homemade. Pot roast is usually chuck and hamburger can be ground round or ground chuck. Ground round is leaner than chuck, so it can't be the fat. (Pot roast is chuck too.) I would say the problem is how well done the meat is. Homemade hamburgers are really thick and fried in a pan or broiled or put on the barbie. Some homemade hamburgers even contain eggs. Since they are so thick, they really do not get fully cooked so you are actually feeling cramping caused from the still living bacteria in the meat. Pot roast is cooked until it gets really tender and almost falls apart, so it is well done and the bacteria is distroyed/killed from the long cooking time.
