General Discussion / Re: Seeking Raw Paleo Coach
« on: June 08, 2020, 11:08:07 pm »
I would advise you to pass on anyone who has been eating raw less than 10 solid years. One of the reasons why I stopped posting, for the most part, is the sheer number of people who are clearly novices or who are not dedicated to a raw lifestyle at all but post here prolifically. I started in 2003. Others on here, who also post less frequently, have been at this for similarly long timeframes.

I would disagree. It should be just one more factor in deciding on a coach, other factors being:
- Do your philosophies align? e.g., if you are looking for 100% raw, does your coach eat 100% raw?
- Have they healed any health conditions in the past? e.g., helped someone get pregnant or eliminate acne
- Have they DEVELOPED health conditions? e.g., GCB's wife who was instincto died from cancer. Other folks have too much iron, etc.

Just using ">10 years?" is overly simplistic. Especially since the point of getting coached is to cut down on time-to-mastery.

People come and go. Most of the moderators here have long since stopped posting, but the forum owner never bothered to replace them. Facebook has pilfered much of people's time. It is easier to use than a clunky forum like this, and offers one-stop social media engagement, so to speak.

Tried googling "raw paleo diet facebook" - didn't find any groups?

Interesting. Where'd you learn this?

People need to let the animals choose the plants, they are much smarter.  Humans were not meant to do that task it seems.

What fucking animal is going to be choosing the plants you'll eat? Are you going to train a cow to tell you what plants to eat? Or a dog?

"Pesto" is not a paleo food... any complicated mixing is unnatural and masks the tastes and smells of the ingredients... duh

Health / Re: did i catch trichinosis?
« on: October 26, 2019, 09:41:53 pm »
this hapened to me earlier this summer:

i bought a freshly slaughtered lamb and started eating it raw. later that day i start feeling sick and fatigued. then i get diarrhea. next morning my neck and shoulder hurt like crazy, my stomach is so painfull i cant move, i feel sick over all but no headache/fever/nausea. my symptoms get worse and on day two my entire upperbody hurts so bad im crying in pain. the exruciating pain in my upper body, sharp stomach pains and constipation last for another week. then it goes away. i still havent recovered, i still feel fatigued, im still constipated although not that bad. did i catch some serious parasite? extreme oxalate dump? ive ditched the carnivore diet and started eating large ammounts of honey and im feeling a bit better, but im worried it might have been trichinosis.

Detox. Had same symptoms fasting.

« on: July 12, 2019, 11:54:10 pm »
This svrn guy saying salt is bad, never really elaborated on why the salty liquer inside oysters, is different from salt. They're both sodium, and both "salty". Also: "blood" is salty people. Guess what? We probably didn't "cleanly" drain the blood from our prey before eating the meat. There was blood mixed in, acting as a "salt topping" of sorts. I know I'm reviving an old thread but... I'm surprised no one touched on this.

"One of the main mechanisms behind low-carb diets is a reduction in insulin levels.

Insulin has many functions in your body, such as telling fat cells to store fat and your kidneys to retain sodium.

On a low-carb diet, your insulin levels go down and your body starts shedding excess sodium — and water along with it. This is why people often get rid of excess bloating within a few days of low-carb eating.

However, sodium is a crucial electrolyte. Low sodium levels can become problematic when your kidneys dump too much of it.

This is one reason people get side effects on low-carb diets, such as lightheadedness, fatigue, headaches, and even constipation.

The best way to circumvent this issue is to add more sodium to your diet. You can do this by salting your foods — but if that doesn't suffice, try drinking a cup of broth every day.

SUMMARY
Low-carb diets lower insulin levels, making your kidneys excrete excess sodium. This can lead to a mild sodium deficiency."

General Discussion / Why are SAD-eaters so fat!?!?
« on: July 01, 2019, 10:57:33 am »
Any theories as to why almost everyone is overweight?

I read stuff like this:

Quote
I recently came across this study from 1973 in which a 27 years old male has fasted for 382 days under the supervision of researchers from a Scotland University. This is the longest fast ever been recorded.

This patient weighted in 456 pounds (~207 kg) and weighted out 180 pounds (~82 kg). So, he lost 276 pounds (~125kg) during his fast. Five years after the fast ended, the patient’s weight has been constantly around the values of 196 pounds. A.B. had no ill symptoms during and after the fast.

and I'm mystified as to what is going on.
- why is it so easy to gain weight on cooked stuff?
- what purpose does this fat serve?
- why is it hard to gain weight on raw?

I've always preferred colder fat, whether it's the dry or more creamy kind.
Seems we all do.

Just noticed how raw animal fat tastes even better when dehydrated just a bit at 40 degrees Celsius for a day or so. I‘d imagine that this is more palaeo in a way.
Pic?

It is so sad that none of us can ever enjoy the taste of raw mammoth fat or raw giant bird eggs, like they did in Palaeo times....

Grass is always greener

I've recently started to consume more animal fat... which is incredibly hard, as my body interprets as "too cleansing" if that makes sense... but I could be wrong.

I need my food strategies to be flexible to my metropolitan life.

Take it slow.

Thoughts?

Patience + Experimentation.

For a period of six months before the contest, the men of the Bodi tribe drink a mixture of blood and milk to fatten up for the most prestigious pageant in Ethiopia.

I find blood delicious and it is full nutrients, but I don't remember having any problems without it either.

How long did you abstain?

Very interesting indeed! They definitely did not have anything like that on their web page last time I thoroughly looked it over. Can you provide a link directly to that page?

I've been eating 100% raw carnivore/zero carb for years now, and I haven't had any problems in a long time.

I get the impression from the forum that long-term raw zero/low carb causes health issues. Is that accurate? If so, is it true for everyone/most/few?

The Barcroft episode has been unleashed!

Dope vid. A couple questions if you don't mind:

- What are the benefits of hanging the meat?
- Is your refrigerator (where you hang the meat) cooling, or is it simply used as a container?
- If it's on, what setting do you set it on?
- Does the meat rot or is it dry and stable? If it rots, at what rate (e.g., same rate as out in the open/slower/very slowly)?
- Does anyone complain about smells (assuming the meat is rotting)?
- Do you have any advice on smart ways to butcher the animals? E.g., how not to lose the blood?
