Hello all,
I hope I'm doing this right -- I'm a first timer and I just typed it all in and then lost it somehow!! So here I try again!!

I'm about start an MAOI (parnate) and have been looking at the MAOI diet and am feeling rather confused (a fairly state of affairs for me!) While I don't want to go to extremes, I do tend to be very sensitive to side effects and have a history of bp problems (hypotension -- low blood pressure). Without inundating everyone, let me ask a specific question which I haven't seen anywhere and which will come up for me on a regular basis.
Every MAOI diet I've seen mentions fresh meat and fish. I live in an orthodox Jewish community where one doesn't buy or cook meat from sundown Friday until sundown Saturday. The following is the normal, or "good case" scenario, of the meat traveling for a Saturday (Sabbath) lunch:
Tue-Wed: arrives in store
Wed-Th: buy
Th-Fr: cook
Friday: place in crockpot overnight (slow cooker)
Saturday: place on hot plate (where it might sit several hours before eaten -- think Thanksgiving dinner every Saturday.)

Can I eat this on a regular basis?? (I emailed my doctor and received a one word answer: yes. I am waiting for a reply to my request for further explanation/basis.)

This is all of course assuming the meat wasn't bought earlier and frozen, also fairly common, perhaps especially due to kosher meats more limited availability and higher expense. In fact, I have meat, chicken & fish in my freezer, including a $25 roast I'm planning to make for friends this weekend -- I just hope it's okay for me to also eat it! Speaking of which...

One more question: what's the safest way to defrost meat?

Thank you in advance for any help
