Health / Re: HIGH Calorie?
« on: Yesterday at 04:29:36 am »
Part of my problem is i had lost energetic balance to what seemed like half my body so it was like having a battery with only one terminal instead of two.  I don't know if I can find any coconut around here.  I know the young ones I can find but yea coconut oil i haven't tried for awhile.  I do all the basics with plant fats from olives, avocado, etc.  I want to go back and find some bone marrow, etc soon.

Health / HIGH Calorie?
« on: Yesterday at 03:23:12 am »
OK guys,

After a long time with my own health journey I stumbled upon a major blocked acupuncture meridian due to old weightlifting injuries.  Here is my problem.  Body is CRAVING calories when i work on this thing.  It just will not tolerate low calorie food.  I am craving junk food like crazy.  Trying to stay as clean as possible during this process.  So question is:

What super high calorie foods/recipes do you guys go to?  I use all the basics but any ideas would be helpful,

Much love,

I would ease into it really.  Here is the way.  raw fruits are easy.  don't feel obliged to eat all the fiber either.  Juicing can be helpful.  Plant fats are great.  avocados, olives, coconut, etc.  Raw eggs are pretty easy.  Bone marrow is a great fat.  Try to focus on clean eating before anything else, and don't neglect exercise, rest, mental/emotional and spiritual factors either.

I definitely can vouch for that last one.  The cleaner you eat the more you lose taste for all the crap.  As in sauces, seasonings, etc.  I sometimes find myself in disbelief that people can eat all the things they do without a second thought.  It doesn't even look like food to me anymore.  Most sauces are just soybean or other strange oils mixed with corn syrup or some other crap sugar.  I make some great BBQ sauce though mannnnn.  Here the recipe.

-3 TBSP raw olive oil
-2 TBSP raw honey
- 1 tsp bbq herbs
-1 tsp cider vinegar
-1 tomato optional

General Discussion / Question of the DAY?!
« on: April 08, 2014, 11:42:33 pm »

Why do we think people enjoy cooked meat over raw for the most part in "civilized" (ha) countries?  I understand it from a sanitation perspective and what not.  I for one follow the vibrational principle in foods.  Basically most raw fruits/veggies/plant fats are best cooked.  There are "enigmas" in nature however.  As in cooked potatoes vibrate higher and digest better when cooked.  Certain animal foods fit that category for me as well.  As in very slow-roasted low temp type of stuff.  But the point is;  WHY do we seem to be attracted to cooked meats so much of the time before we are taught or otherwise find out due to health reasons?


General Discussion / Re: Warming up food without cooking it
« on: April 07, 2014, 08:39:59 pm »
in the winter especially i warm up fruits and veggies in warm water sometimes.  sounds like you are talking more animal foods here.  I am one who thinks that sometimes heated animal foods are ok albeit as long as they are warmed up properly.  As in no frying, cooking super high temp.  This would more be things like very runny egg whites and yolks, smoked meats, etc.

I tell you what.  Most of the longest lived people in the world attribute spirituality as TOP.  Also, most eat some cooked food; have been through hardship, etc.  Honestly, if we stress out super much about what we do; it detracts.  Everyones different.  Natural diet is best.

Hey guys.  Kroger around me recently added fresh young coconuts to it's arsenal.  They are delicious as is, but anybody know any good ways to mix em up a bit?  I want to make some pina coladas.

I keep foods around specifically for "macromineral" purposes.  My electrolytes were way out of balance.  Still working on them.  I don't worry about sodium too much.  Just eat sea salt if you crave it.

POTASSIUM: bananas, swiss chard, avocados, PAPAYAS, mushrooms, salmon; cooked stuff would include yams, potatoes, and certain beans.

General Discussion / Re: Your view on supplements
« on: May 31, 2013, 08:55:08 pm »
I think very few supplements are truly needed.  Most can get from food sources.  Best sources?

kelp or seaweed - iodine
liver - b12 and b complex
cod liver oil - vitamin d, omegas (sun is best)
papaya/pineapple - digestive enzymes, vitamin C (papaya is LOADED)
fermented foods - probiotics
raw fats - great for most everything
marrow bones - for joints

Personally, I think magnesium is one of the harder ones to get from food.  Unfortunately, there is more in some of the "non-paleo" foods.  Swiss chard, spinach, greens, and some nuts seem to be the best sources for these.

Other than that, a "whole foods" supplement like Dr. Schulze stuff seems best for broad-spectrum type stuff. 

General Discussion / Weight Gain?
« on: May 27, 2013, 05:53:32 pm »
Ok guys.  Healing up.  Trying to put back on some weight.  Problem?  I am using MASSIVE amounts of calories.  Like upwards of 3500 a day.  I have had to resort to a lot of cooked, sometimes junky food to get in these types of calories.  My digestion is healing but is still somewhat shot.  Especially on the raw protein/meat or nuts digestion.  Fat digestion is improving but still sluggish.  I am needing huge amounts of carbs/sugar right now as well.  So question is; does anybody know any good ways to get in large amounts of calories without bingeing on the junk too much?  Either way, I need to eat.  Have access to most raw paleo foods and raw dairy as well.

Had some amazing beef yesterday.  Haven't had beef for a few months.  Been eating a lot of lamb and salmon.  So this was ground sirloin slowly heated in the oven (not above 90 degrees) with bone marrow melted on top near the end with a little sea-salt.  DELICIOUS.  Sat really well. Probably had almost half pound.  I was just sitting there remembering the feeling that I would have with 1/2 pound of COOKED hamburger in my stomach.  I was just curious if anyone ever gets that smile on their face with smooth burning raw meat knowing that it's so easy in the stomach and digestion =)  It's good to remember such things.


Health / Re: Kidney cleansing?
« on: March 11, 2013, 04:42:42 pm »
Hey guys.  I basically am on raw-scd type diet.  I have been doing everything great the past few years.  Found out I had serious problem with energy flow in my spine due to compressed cervical vertebrae.  It's like I turned on a water hose and now the kidneys/bladder are dumping extremely fast.  Typical diet day for me:

9-10 AM: Fresh pressed veggie juice (celery, beets, beet greens, carrots, tomatoes, other greens, herbs, etc)
11 AM:  Post-exercise FRUIT.  Could be a few apples or a bag of blueberries or pears.
12:30 PM: Meat meal #1: maybe 1/4 pound of raw ground lamb warmed in the oven
2:00 PM: Meat meal #2:  same as lunch
5:00 PM: Big bowl cooked veggies with some type of raw fat (butter, olive oil, coconut oil)

I'm giving Dr. Schulze detox tea a shot for the time being.  Powerful and good all-around seems like.  Has stuff for liver/kidney/bugs, etc.  It is getting to be spring here.  Maybe I will try one of these watermelon fast type days soon here.  I think all this will clear up soon.  It is more just getting the traffic-jam moving smoothly again =)

Health / Kidney cleansing?
« on: March 11, 2013, 05:34:58 am »
What do we think about this one?  VEGAN diet is not an option.  Question is how to cleanse and nourish the kidneys to decongest them?  Basically on RPD right now.  A few cooked vegetables at night.  Meats include salmon and lamb.  raw butter, coconut oil, olive oil, soon other fish.  Veggie juice.  And fruit.  MMM.  Any special ideas?  I may use dr. schulze detox tea.

General Discussion / Seafood sourcing?
« on: March 04, 2013, 07:23:55 pm »
Hey guys,

My body tends to like fresh seafood.  Especially in the spring and summer.  Especially when raw =).  Problem is; I live in Indiana.  There are a few quality sushi places.  I get mass amounts of alaskan salmon that is amazing.  How else do you guys go about getting stuff in bulk?  Order online?  I don't really feel like going to restaurants all the time or markets.  Ideas?

Thanks all.  Part of my question though is whether the enzymes are STILL PRESENT in raw frozen meat?  Thanks.

General Discussion / Enzymes versus Denaturing?
« on: March 03, 2013, 09:26:08 am »
Hey guys,

In fresh, frozen, wild-caught meats; is the biggest issue with "cooking" the destruction of living enzymes as in fresh fruits and vegetables OR the denaturing of proteins/fats?  Maybe it's both.  I have been warming up my salmon in hot water.  It tenderizes it and makes it a lot easier to digest.  The water temp never goes over 120F.  I wouldn't mind it a little hotter and I don't think it really affects the quality of the protein/fat but I didn't know if the enzymes destruction was an issue.

I eat a well-varied diet.  Honestly, I think sometimes I don't eat quite enough to fuel myself but am working on that.  I eat organ meat here and there as well as fermented CLO, raw butter, etc.  I think the problem was that I just needed something to get through some blockages and get things moving again.  In the tincture, let's see: red clover, dandelion, burdock, turmeric, milk thistle, hydrangea, uva ursi, and chanca piedra (stone breaker).  It's for kidneys and liver.

Health / Kidney cleansing?
« on: November 19, 2012, 01:35:31 am »
Hey guys,

Trying to do some mild kidney cleansing lately.  Anybody know some fairly gentle methods?  Currently I am just using a few herbs in tincture form and doing some reflexology on the feet.  Diet suggestions?  I need protein right now for healing I just don't want to overload the kidneys either.  I feel that rare/raw meat does not have the same effect as in bogging down the organs as fried/cooked stuff.


General Discussion / Re: Issues with Food Temperature
« on: November 16, 2012, 06:13:45 pm »
GS I agree.  There really is something to the yin/yang, hot/cold theory in chinese medicine.  Of course cooking foods often make them more yang but those trying to adhere to a fully raw diet may need to find other ways to do this.  Here are a few that seem to work for me.  I always think in nature how this would work.  A lion kills a gazelle.  When it eats it, it is already body temperature (of course).  It is hard for modern humans to accomplish this feat.

1.  Keep a BIG fruit bowl for the counter.  Keep the fruit in there instead of in the fridge.  This makes sure they are at room temperature.  Meats I keep in the fridge but often take them out to thaw before I eat them.  When I thaw a nice salmon fillet in hot water in the sink I take it out early enough to let it become somewhat warm before I eat it.

2.  Use WARMING spices and seasonings.  Cinnamon goes great on apples and pears.  Sea salt is pretty warming if your body likes that.  I believe most things like thyme, oregano, etc are all fairly warming to the body.

3.  Don't be afraid to use the oven/skillet.  Warming things up in the oven or skillet can work too.  Just set on extremely low heat for awhile.  I think I remember one user awhile back talking about how she would heat up a little olive or coconut oil in a skillet and roll little chunks of salmon or meat in there with seasonings.  All of these things are warming.

Personally, I cook some of my food although the percentage keeps decreasing as my body adjusts to more raw/rare meat.  I do fine with salmon sashimi and stuff like that although raw red meat doesn't sit with me as well as rare meat at the moment.  I generally eat fruit raw, fish raw/rare, red meat and lamb rare or raw liver in blended drinks, and some cooked chicken/turkey meat.  I juice some raw veggies.  I keep most of my fats (coconut, olive, avocado, butter, bone marrow) raw.  I sometimes cook starchy tubers and other vegetables.  I think eating in tune with the seasons is a good idea.  In the winter we naturally want more warming foods.  For those attempting a "paleo" lifestyle, eating foods out of the fridge and out of season just doesn't seem to work. =)  I hope this helps.

p.s. on gaining weight?  A raw paleo diet is naturally very filling.  We get all the nutrition we need.  Just make sure you focus on macronutrients also.  Proteins, fats, carbs.  I guess on raw paleo the best foods are truly fatty meats, good fats (coconut, olive), fruit, nuts, and eggs.  I find starchy tubers and cooked vegetables to be a great benefit also.  Other than that, doing some weight training, sprinting, and sleeping should help with that as well.  Try sprinting once or twice a week and see how that does for leg muscles.
