a_real_man's journal
« on: May 15, 2017, 11:43:07 am »
End of week 1.

Diet: raw lamb steak, raw beef steak, raw beef liver, raw tuna, raw salmon, raw swordfish, raw monchong, lots of raw dairy, small amounts of raw dairy, small amount of tomatoes, raw chicken breast, raw eggs, cheeses from raw milk, butter.

Notes:

Troubles: - On the first few days, I felt constantly dehydrated, despite drinking water. Water felt repulsive. I figured I need to get hydrated from food, along the lines of what AV recommends. So I bought raw milk. And it's been a great pleasure to drink. I know that a lot of folks have problems with dairy, but I've never had any issues. I used to eat cereal with milk twice a day. Perhaps I am evolutionarily blessed with the right genes for dairy, since I have heritage from North East Europe.
- Cooked food is tastier.
 
Benefits: - I have had minor dermatitis for about 4 months on my face. On day 3 of my diet, it began noticeably receding. Now it seems to have been cured.
- I experience hunger differently now. I would feel light-headed and brain-fogged. Now I simply feel my stomach telling me I ought to eat.
- Movements have gone from 1/day to 1/2 days.
- My stomach feels much lighter after a meal. With cooked food it felt heavy.

Cooked foods do not, imo, taste better. It is simply that cooked foods(along with grains and dairy) contain  addictive opioids which affect the brain and cause cravings. It may take  some time to get rid of the addiction for some people, say a week to a year, depending on the individual. Ironically, I found that the foods I now find much richer in  taste  are precisely the ones which I found  at the start to be too off-putting, such as raw organ-meats and raw wild game. Basically, cooked-foodists lather their cooked foods with extra sauces and spices because of the lack of taste in them. Even chefs generally admit that the more one cooks one's food, the less it tastes.
“The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. "Ayn Rand

That might be true, yet I feel an extremely strong temptation towards chocolate, popcorn, ice cream, mcdonalds, cooked juicy steak, soups, cooked potatoes, omeletes and other foods  -\

One more benefit: acne on my back is gone. This tells me that I am on the right path.

In my experience, I need salt.  I think Aajonus is wrong on the no salt thing... in my experience.
I also recently learned the use of spices and herbs for flavoring, but more so against fungus mold that I had suffered from due to the house I used to live in. 
Think italian spice and its components.

I think you're right on the salt thing. The raw meat I've been eating, except for tuna and salmon, felt really bland. Do you know of alternatives to sea salt?

Mid 20's, work in computer security, USA, I'm pretty active physically. I am also pretty lightweight and have trouble putting on weight.

Sea weeds, shellfish, crabs and... seawater!

Don't worry about your weight, everyone is different. Most are obese or at least too fat and if you're normal, they think you're too thin since there reference of normality is the average of abnormally fat cooked food dieters. 
Cause and effect are distant in time and space in complex systems, while at the same time there’s a tendency to look for causes near the events sought to be explained. Time delays in feedback in systems result in the condition where the long-run response of a system to an action is often different from its short-run response. — Ronald J. Ziegler

In 2009 I had problems gaining weight. I ate a lot of raw meat every single day some 600 grams a day and could not gain weight.
By the end of 2009 I had tape worms crawling out of my butt.
I took a 30 days herbal dewormer program from www.humaworm.com com and got rid of my tapeworms / parasites.
My raw meat consumption crashed down from 600 to 200 to 100 grams a day and I gained a sane maintaining weight I had always wanted for the next years.

If you have not dewormed yourself for many years, now might be a good time.
I disagree with Aajonus that parasites are a good thing and not a problem.
I'm not afraid of parasites, I can and do kick them out when they cause problems for me or my kids.
