Them you, I’m planning on going carnivore in January so fingers crossed i get similar results to yourself. Have you found any plant foods which you can tolerate?
Cool, good luck. I recommend choosing low histamine cuts (ironically in higher quality butcher shops the let the mead dry age for quite some time which heightenes the histamine loaf), adding betaine hcl, avoiding egg whites (yolks are great, at least for me) and experimenting with everything (fat-protein ratio, methionine-glycine ratio etc., smaller or bigger meals, dairy or no dairy etc.)
The plant foods I tolerate the best are fresh figs (not dried!) and some cherimoyas. But not on the same day as animal products (or other longer to digest plant foods) because of food combination.
Oh and I would avoid drinking water around your meals. Stomach acid.
Good luck. Don’t hesitate to ask if you want to. :)

i've been taking more vitamins than ever tho.
Now that I’ve been trying to figure out what correlated with my pounding heart lessening, I think magnesium and potassium might have to do with it. I’d agree with vitamins and electrolytes.

Also the antihistamines someone mentioned.

I’m really struggling to find food that I can eat without having some reaction to. My heart pounding gets more intense after eating meat, and my blood pressure goes into the high range too, although i have noticed this with minced beef, slow cooked lamb, and fried gammon steaks. Perhaps these are the wrong cuts/ways of prepping.
Do you only find H2 antihistamines to help or do you get some relief from anti allergy tablets like citririzine?

Yeah, no, minced, slow cooked and fried meats are higher in histamine.
I made the best experiences with fresh cuts, not dry aged, without much surface exposed and briefly/lightly cooked in water.
Even if it’s not culinarily exciting, it should be easier tolerated.
If you decide to take an antihistamine (and even if you don’t) Betaine HCL may really be a good idea to have before or during your meal...
I didn’t try citririzine (yet, but interestingly my doctor recommended it today against full body itch). Instead I’ve made really great experiences with Famotidine.
Quercetin acts as a mast cell inhibitor and it can be taken half an hour before eating. If you tolerate it. You can get it as a pure powder without fillers and additives. :)

Your gut motility is low. Ask your GP to prescribe a gut prokinetic. Avoid constipating foods. Ask the doctor to prescribe Cisapride + Simethicone combination. It will take one week before you see improvements.
