Debaser, have you by any chance been skimping on meals lately? Believe me, I know the feeling of not having an appetite and/or being afraid to eat. Part of our discussion this past month has been relative to getting GERD from not eating regularly - or maybe just not eating enough. As my mother used to say, you have to eat to feel hungry....our stomachs are probably so shrunken from eating small portions that beef presents a real challenge.
I would not attempt beef for an evening meal, but during my good periods I can enjoy a lean burger for lunch.
