Primal Diet / Re: Raw Unheated Honey
« on: May 03, 2010, 07:11:21 pm »
This is not new. They sell both heated and unheated honey. They call the unheated honey "cold packed"

Not sure if they just added this on their website but honey pacifica is heated up to 100 degrees F, so not raw.

I once killed a seagull and ate it. In hindsight, this was probably not such a good idea, since seagulls often eat junk food
that's thrown out by humans.

I once found a dead squirrel, that was not yet rotten. I brought it home, and prepared it for eating. There was very little meat, and barely any fat.
I ended up throwing the squirrel out, because I didn't know how it died, and I was worried about rabies.

I once caught a baby canada goose. There wasn't much meat or fat either. I've been eyeing adult canada geese or swans and planning
on catching one, but never got around to it.

In my experience, raw meat digests much faster than raw nuts (even if soaked/sprouted).

I found frozen durian in an asian supermarket (in Canada). I liked it. It did have a strong smell, but I wouldn't call it "bad". I've eaten it only once, to try it. I agree that one should eat local and not imported things.

If you can't stomach raw meat, maybe try making jerky (dried meat). Lex made a very detailed guide about jerky-making. After all, Dr. Ron's supplement is just dried & powdered meat.

I've dried ground beef by simply spreading it out very thinly on a plate, and leaving it at room temperature for about a day.
When it was dried up, its taste and texture was similar to salami.

Remedy for lice.
Apply a mixture of apple cider vinegar & coconut/flax oil to the skin, to "smother the lice, and retard the eggs from hatching".
Then, after 24 hours, apply lime juice & oil to the skin, to "remove the lice and eggs".
If that doesn't work, use urine instead.

Also, remedy for lyme disease.

Are you sure that Stefansson ate RAW marrow, not COOKED marrow? Stefansson and various pro-cooked fanatics have suggested that Stefansson's experiment shows that raw is not necessary. If raw marrow was used, then there's a lot of hypocrisy in the above argument. As regards Stefansson's experiment, it wasn't all that watertight, judging from the fact that neither Stefansson nor his partner were properly observed for many months in the latter part of the test(according to Stefansson's own account), plus the experiment was only for one year, which is nowhere near enough to draw any conclusion of any kind - after all studies of Raw Vegans are usually done on people who've done such diets for many years.

Re marrow/vitamin C:- AFAIK, bone-marrow DOES contain vitamin C. Here's an excerpt from the Net:-  "The activity of hepatic l-gulono- gamma -lactone oxidase, an enzyme responsible for vitamin C synthesis, corresponded well to the concentrations of vitamin C in the bone marrow and the plasma" taken from:-

As regards vitamin C:- Pasteurised fruit-juices mostly only contain artificial doses of supplemented vitamin C, not natural vitamin C, as the pasteurisation destroys all or most of it, depending. Also, again from the Web:-"Vitamin C is the most easily destroyed vitamin there is. It is destroyed by oxygen, heat (above 70 degrees) and it leaks out into the cooking water because it is a water soluble vitamin."  This is why any cooking of fruit or veg is not recommended by nutritionists, with the sole exception of steaming, as it's the least harmful of the cooking processes.

quote from stefansson study:
"The meat was usually cooked lightly and the bone marrow eaten raw."

The study about bone marrow that you quoted, talked about Vit. C levels in marrow,
and its health impact on the living animal. However, the quantity of Vit. C is probably so small, that it
is an insignificant contribution to the diet if the animal is killed and the marrow is eaten.

Here's nutritional info for caribou bone marrow (it says 0mg VitC in 100g raw marrow):

An example to illustrate my point: you can find studies that measure levels of glycogen in muscles
of animals, such as:
But the amount of glycogen in the muscles is so small, that it is an insignificant contribution to the diet
if the animal is killed and its muscles are eaten.
(i.e. muscle meat has almost zero carbs).

I looked at the nutrition info for a typical pure pasteurized orange juice:

The only ingredient is pasteurized orange juice.
There's 100% DV Vit.C in 250ml
Unless this is info about pre-pasteurized juice (I highly doubt this), there's quite a
lot of VitC left, even after pasteurization.

We can get vitamin C from cooked fruit, or cooked vegetables. Cooking does destroy some Vit.C., but food would have
to be extremely overcooked for all Vit.C. to be destroyed. Most SADers probably get their Vit. C from (pasteurized) orange
juice, or potatoes.
Also, in his one-year experiment, Stefansson ate cooked meat and raw marrow. (Marrow doesn't have Vit.C.)

I agree that raw meat or fruit is healthier than cooked, but I haven't seen any evidence that they're essential.

OK, first of all the notion that since all human cultures eat (some) cooked-food and that that implies that we need it or have to have it. This is a false conclusion as the only way one could conclude that cooked-food is essential/necessary for human health and that raw food is unnecessary or toxic is if we could encounter a human culture that only ate cooked-food and no raw food whatsoever(no such culture exists, to my knowledge as all humans need to eat raw fruit for vitamin C etc., and the Eskimos on their 99% meat diets would eat some of their meats raw, also for the vitamin C among other nutrients) . I should also  point out that since all non-human species do not cook their foods and thrive in that state, that humans don't need to cook their food, either.

Keep in mind that an excess of Vitamin D can be toxic.

IMO, it's better to take CLO than a vit. D supplement.

I think that the yellow color of grass-fed fat comes from carotenes, and not omega-3.

I've noticed that liver becomes very acidic (much more than other organs) if it's left for a long time in the fridge.
I think that this happens because bacteria eat the glycogen (carbs) in the liver, and create acid.

Coconut oil doesn't have enzymes in it. Take a look at:

« on: May 27, 2008, 02:01:08 am »

Why do you think that a high-carb, high-protein diet is better for intelligence, than a high-fat high-protein diet?
Is it because "carbs are the best fuel for the brain"?

I've always been interested in the effect of diet on mental performance. I spend a lot of time at a desk
doing physics/math research, so this is of practical use to me.

A high-fat moderate-protein diet has improved my concentration by a lot (relative to Wai diet).


General Discussion / Re: what are you reading?
« on: May 27, 2008, 01:55:34 am »
I'm not currently reading anything diet-related, but this thread inspired me to find something.
I'm considering buying Stefansson's "fat of the land".

Also, could anyone recommend an introductory book about anthropology, with
emphasis on the diet of paleolithic people?


General Discussion / Re: Were you sick when you started?
« on: May 27, 2008, 01:51:15 am »
I was never seriously sick, but I had annoying digestive problems. After a big "normal" dinner consisting of starch, animal protein, salad, and fruit for dessert, I often had a stomach-ache that lasted all night. For about a year, I ate
lots of yogurt and drank lots of camomile tea to relieve the stomach-ache. But then I became a "perfection-seeker"
and wanted to understand the cause of my stomach-aches. That eventually led me to the raw paleo diet.


When I ate SAD, my weight was around 120 lbs.
When I was vegan, my weight dropped to 100-110 lbs.

After going raw paleo, my weight went up to around 120 lbs.
No matter how much I ate, or how many carbs I ate, the weight didn't go higher.

Then I started weight training. I was eating carbs (oranges) after workouts.
My weight went up to 140 lbs.

But the carbs were making me feel awful, so I cut them out. I went from 140 lbs to 150 lbs,
while eating only animal-food.

(My height is 5'11")

Maybe try eating different kinds of fat. I can't eat much poultry fat, or bone marrow, without
getting nauseous, but I can eat suet, or fat from brisket/ribs in much greater quantities.


Exercise / Bodybuilding / Re: Different Types of Exercise
« on: May 07, 2008, 09:24:32 am »
I do both cardio (jogging, running, biking), and weight lifting.
I've done cardio for a long time, but I'm quite new to weight lifting (I've only
been doing it for the past 4 months).

I have some dumbbells and a pull-up bar at home. I go to the gym
to use barbells.

I only do cardio (outdoors) in the summer. I tried indoor cardio in the winter,
(stationary bike), but I found it incredibly boring. For me, the most fun thing
about biking/jogging, is the wind and fresh air blowing past me.

I also like swimming, but unfortunately there aren't any unchlorinated
pools near where I live. So I only swim in lakes when I go on a vacation
in the summer.

Also, I don't have a car, so I speed-walk everywhere, usually with
a heavy backpack (to school, to farmers' market, etc.).

I'm a grad student, and I find that exercise really improves my
