General Discussion / Re: Mineral water causing tooth decay/tartar
« on: December 20, 2018, 07:59:20 pm »
Mineral water is relatively high in calcium and phosphorus. Carbonic acid in sparkling water may also demineralise teeth. When calcium and phosphate mix with saliva you get tartar/calculus deposits if they are not removed/dislodged early on.

I honestly dont get it. Are you saying fast food is unavoidable if it is merely available? The choice is always in the hands of the consumer; advertising or pouring sauce on the floor is not going to work if you the consumer has a different set of priorities. We arent exactly possessed by marketing and personally have no problem saying no even to free food. Surely im not the only one.

I had some tree ripe limes grown in a backyard in florida

You are very fortunate to live there. Good luck growing citrus in the UK or most of Europe.

These outlets open/close according to demand. The UK isnt a place for ignorance anymore, so if people knowingly eat garbage in the same way people choose to smoke then let them have it

General Discussion / Re: Carnivore diet burnout
« on: October 01, 2018, 01:56:51 am »
 I just wanted to clarify that food was never a pervasive pleasure. I eat when I feel "run down", hence carnivore is generally an extremely satisfying lifestyle down to a visceral level. As of now, something is just rejecting it outright. Anything meat and fat just feels too much even if I eat once a day. I've been caught up in the dietary dogma to the point where once again, have probably fell out of tune with my body. This happened with veganism too, so it is in no way an attack on anybody who thrives on it.

I am often envious of many of you who have no problem sourcing raw dairy (though not Paleo but whatever) and pastured products at a sustainable price. The UK is so heavily centralised that the supermarket is often our only source of food. There is literally no sense of communal living anymore. Heck, the butcher openly admits that their suppliers for chicken and pork are just the standard factory farmed produce. There's no such thing as your friendly local bee keeper or dairy farmer. Comi g to think of it, that is very worrying.

General Discussion / Carnivore diet burnout
« on: September 30, 2018, 02:52:23 pm »
I've been on this diet for around four months and its easy to see why so many thrive on the diet. Raw meat digests perfectly every time, cooked not so much.
Now this might annoy many of you but I've honestly been finding this diet incredibly boring. Its not the diet per se, but the availability. I have no access to raw dairy, supermarket aged cheese seems to be a no-no, as is anything pork, chicken and fish. These things are former living garbage cans and buying wild caught fish or pastured pork or chicken comes at a huge cost.

I've been limited to pasteurised dairy, beef,lamb and eggs. As you can imagine, having these as your only option is really boring and far from optimal.  Organs are something I have no desire for anymore, either. I'm just sick of everything and would rather not eat at all.

Though I do appreciate the lack of dietary dogma on these forums, it does seem like a dogmatic lifestyle overall. Nobody has yet clarified what a carnivore diet is for, or whether its temporary. Seems like most are set to adopt this lifestyle for life, and I appreciate that if you have access to good sources of a wide range of food. I just wanted to share my honest take on this and as much as I've grown scared of plant based food, it seems like ill have to incorporate some back. Anybody else feel the same?

 Have you tried Betaine HCl, ACV or celery juice to increase stomach acid? What's the underlying reason for low acid?

General Discussion / Re: Quality juicer
« on: September 20, 2018, 10:07:42 pm »
I've an unwanted juicer purchased this March. Its a centrifugal juice extractor, which is considered inferior to the slow masticating juicer as far as nutrient retention and degradation rate is concerned. Masticating juicers are incredibly expensive though. For somebody who just juiced celery it did the job.
If it interests you, my juicer is a Lloytron 600W Extractor, bought it for about £50 brand new. Have a look at them, though plenty of others are on the market.

I'm happy to give mine away, but based in Manchester. I cant afford to ship such a bomb shell via courier

General Discussion / Spotting Good Quality Liver
« on: September 18, 2018, 02:53:47 pm »
I've been curious to ask somebody more knowledgeable on buying good quality liver. Currently, I purchase lamb liver from two sources:

Supermarket - vacuum sealed from NZ

Butcher - sourced within UK

Supermarket liver isnt ideal but it really isnt *that* bad. Sometimes its excellent, actually.
The butcher, however, has always been consistently good to the point where you would rather buy their liver than the steak they sell. The cuts they sell are visually uniform compared to the supermarket that can vary greatly in texture, colour and size. Ive not managed to pin point what differences it makes considering ive not been zc for long. However, is there any actual way to determine its quality by visual assessment? Are certain sections naturally grainy, pale or dark red than others or am I eating liver of a sick animal? Do certain parts of the liver actually taste worse/stronger than other areas?

Supermarket meat is the only option I have access to. Are the e-coli claims really that common, or would you get away with eating raw ground meat from the supermarket?

So you both had mucus in ur stool in the beginning, if so for how long? And now you don´t see it anymore? I know that peristalsis is vital for good bowel movements. If u lack in that u get blocked up as food gets stuck. Fats seems to be the replacement for fiber, but without the negative effects.

About 2 months. Stools have a lot less mucous these days, maybe because the flora has stabilized again. Dairy gives a lot more mucous too and stronger bowel movement, but the mucous response it's not the same as when eating meat. Can't complain either way,  I poop like a deer

I've noticed this too but don't see a problem - the trips to the toilet aren't  messy affairs anymore to say the least.
If you have parasites, you'll know about it.
Fat isn't always digested, especially if you've taken in a large volume and/or exercise shortly afterwards. However, this is usually accompanied by the runs or pale and putrid stool.

Personally my bowel movements are a lot friendlier with fats. A lack of it seems to halt peristalsis, but each to their own

 The last few sentences answer your question. You'll have a problem if what you are eating isn't serving you, and it'll become apparent when you stop feeling good.
Some people follow far more limited diets and do just fine.

How does it compare to dairy yogurt?
I've tried Rythm Coconut Kefir, though made from pasteurised milk, tasted like vomit.
Nevertheless I'm blessed to love anything coconut so this is an absolute gem!

I can bet on money that there will be a new tax or license for that.
Mealworms are pretty easy to raise as are crickets in a plastic container.
Rodents will probably give your home a stench, but as far as I know there is no law against hunting for, say, squirrels.

General Discussion / Re: Pork - Good or Bad?
« on: August 29, 2018, 05:41:52 pm »
I was never so enthusiastic about pork taste wise. Bacon is great, but good luck finding nitrate free in the UK supermarket.
 Most pork is commercially raised pork, and commercially raised pork are walking vessel of trash. Whilst working at a bakery we would wrap all the left over pies and pastries into a garbage bag to be taken to  pig farms. Having seen that there's no way I'll ever be eating their organs or fat where all that disgusting garbage sticks to.

Take what Vonderplanitz said with salt. He made a living with his advocating and most of his talks stem from personal experience. If dairy I causing you such a pronounced reaction, try fermented alternatives if you take pleasure from dairy. If it still gives you a reaction, its probably an allergy to casein, which means avoid it completely, or at least for a while. Sometimes allergies subside when you lay off it for long enough.

As far as enzymes, they dont denature from cold (correct me if I'm wrong). They aren't living things and only function when conditions are optimal.

Just want to add on that the implications of gum disease are overlooked, so please don't leave it unaddressed. Depending on how long you've had this for the condition can turn from a local pesky inconvenience to a full blown attack on your surrounding tooth structures. The suckers causing your inflammation have been linked to an increased risk of metabolic disorders (diabetes, heart disease, etc),thanks to their ability to induce systemic inflammation and hyper-reactivity of the immune system.Deep cleaning by the dentist is usually enough to bring the inflammation down to normal levels though. There's also evidence, albeit weak, that oral probiotics can prevent this recurring

Monocytes are a sign of heightened immune response, but its all too easy to blame this on a new diet. Was your monocyte count always high? Do you have allergies? Autoimmune infections? Swollen gums/gum disease?

Raw milk and cheap meat, but not intended for human consumption.
Anybody have any experience with this? Is it worth taking the risk to save some money?

Thanks for the post and clarification on kefir. I will be coming off the stuff after experiencing some really bad sugar rush-like reaction among other things I'll spare describing.
Interesting that you mention tartar build up - I've never had to worry about this until dairy was involved.
Its a shame that what is easily available has to be absolute gammon.

Are you physiologically and phsychologically healthy? As in, are you not underweight, overweight, chronically pissed, over exercising, stressed and have your electrolytes in check? It sounds like a stress response.I dont have a definitive answer, but find it hard to believe you could be allergic to beef

I was very unaware that heated honey can still be labelled raw. Wow, just a couple of days ago I read on the Rowse website who insisted their EU honey was raw...

Regarding raw dairy, its something I cannot afford because the delivery charges are stupidly high. In Manchester raw suppliers are few and far apart and I havent managed to find a local small scale farmer who can spare a few litres.
Alternatively, I consume Polish imported kefir, soured cream and jersey cow yogurt (longley farm). Im not sure whether raw is law when it comes to dairy, itd be nice to know that even commercial dairy can be of benefit, but if anybody in the community can offer a definitive explanation as to why raw dairy is the only way I will ditch commercial dairy before it kills me.

General Discussion / Pasteurised dairy - bad habit?
« on: August 05, 2018, 01:08:40 am »
Hello everyone and I hope you are well!

Buying raw dairy in the UK is bank breaking so I started incorporating aged and fermented dairy products into my daily diet. This means kefir, soured milk and yogurt with occasional "fresh" pasteurised double cream.

I understand that these products are heat treated but at the same time have been wondering whether this is due to misinformation or exagerration. Pasteurisation doesnt exactly mean boiling, or heating for long periods. I find it hard to believe that such heat treatment is enough to totally kill a product and make it dangerous to health. Maybe im just trying to bullshit myself, but I would like to hear the opinions of others.
Is *really* that bad?
