If you are regular you should have a gastrocolic reflex to filling your stomach with water, so you should be empty after a few days of fasting. After a few days an enema will take care of what is left.

Here is a table from one of the above links that shows just how much omega-3 is in various species. As you can see, more than 20% is common for many lepidoptera, and one grasshopper species was found to have 43% of its fat as omega-3:

I stumbled across some interesting pages on my quest to find out more about eating insects so that I can incorporate them into my diet.

I have come across articles claiming that insects are denser sources of omega-3 than grass-fed meat, but the articles referenced did not back up the claim, so I am still uncertain about it. But omega-3 is highest in the larvae of lepidoptera (butterflies & moths). I am curious about bee larvae also. I am having trouble finding good information online, if anyone comes across some good sources of information, please pass it along.

I am interested in harvesting wild insects. Ideas include obtaining bee larvae from wild hives, as well as "farming" larvae and grubs by methods similar to those used by people in Papua New Guinea who cut down the sago palm and return weeks later to collect the grubs feeding on the rotting material. I am curious if this could be replicated with trees native to the Americas.

I see suppliers of larvae such as mealworms online but I assume they are fed a diet of wheat, corn or soy and are probably the nutritional equivalent of grain-fed meat. They even take on the flavor of the grain that you feed them on.

I didn't experience any immediate negative physical reaction. I can't say I liked the taste though. If you have ever had a cut in your mouth, you know what blood tastes like.

If you watch his latest interviews, he does mention it a few times. See:

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Raw cow blood?

I drank a few gallons last year from some freshly slaughtered grass-fed cows. I had to go to the slaughterhouse with plastic buckets to get it. It made my stools black and tarry.

I did give some pork kidney to the stray cats, but I don't think they will be able to make use of the marrow fat. I feed my own cats nothing but raw grass-fed meat but they won't eat pork or bone marrow.

I am not eating it because I am not eating meat. Since this is a raw paleo forum and my present diet is not a raw paleo diet, it isn't the place to discuss what I am currently eating, though I did mention it in my journal in response to a question:

I don't want it to go to waste. If no one claims it soon it is going in the dumpster, but I would rather someone make use of it, as it is perfectly good meat.

What's going on? Can you try to get your salt from meat?  I think there's salt in the blood and kidneys, not to mention ocean fish.  Do you eat brain or other unfrozen fats? Any poultry? What kind of high meats if any?

I reintroduced carbs into my diet, then switched to a different diet. I am eating vegetarian w/ raw animal products, a yoga or sattvic diet. I find myself unable to stomach raw flesh foods. So I am currently eating:

Raw Dairy: limited to raw grass-fed milk, yogurt, butter, ghee and cream. I do not eat any other dairy. No cheese, sour cream, kefir, etc.

Cooked vegetables: a combination of organic vegetables, typically a root vegetable and a green leafy vegetable or brassica. I have been eating lots of beets, swiss chard, collard greens, sweet potato, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, etc. I do not eat any garlic or onion, or other pungent vegetables.

I am not eating fruit or honey as it is winter here in the northern hemisphere and I am of (predominately) Northern European descent.

This is my diet 99% of the time. I use little or no spices, and no salt. I drink nothing but spring water.

Most of my protein is raw animal protein from grass-fed animals, since I do not eat legumes, grains or nuts. My Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio is 1:1, since all of my fat also comes from grass-fed animals and vegetables. I have been tracking what I eat for the past few months on Cronometer. Nutritionally, the diet is excellent and balanced, and I feel as healthy as I did eating RZC.

Eating 100% raw grass-fed flesh foods was very therapeutic and did wonders to restore insulin sensitivity and overall balance to my digestive system, but I am not interested in eating that way long-term.

I could never get brains or testicles, though I wanted to try them. I made some high meat in the past.

I have 32 lbs. of grass-fed beef marrow bones and 2 pounds of pastured pork kidney, still wrapped and only a few months old (in the freezer). The marrow bones will yield about 6 lbs. of marrow fat. If anyone wants to meet me in the Metro Detroit area you can have them free, just send me a private message.

I did not eat anything today.

I drank 3 750mL bottles of mineral water throughout the day.

Today, my meal consisted of 8 ounces high fat ground beef (78/22) and 7 ounced beef marrow, both raw.

That's 51.8g protein, 212g fat and 0g carbohydrate. 2130 calories, 90% fat, 10% protein, 0% carbs. KR=4.19

I also drank 3 750mL bottles of mineral water throughout the day. And I took 1 tsp. of Himalayan sea salt.

I had more energy today, I think I am meeting my protein needs.

Okay, KR for my last meal was 4.11.

I had a BM this morning shortly after waking. It was gray and clay-like in appearance and consistency, a type 4 on the BSS, and it passed easily. I am not sure what accounts for this change. Maybe this was the pork that I ate? Maybe pork just looks different coming out than beef? I would like to get some activated charcoal so I can time stuff going in and coming out, and to help some friends who have constipation issues. I think I shall buy some.

Today, my meal consisted of 8 ounces high fat ground beef (78/22) and 6.5 ounced beef marrow, both raw.

That's 50.8g protein, 200g fat and 0g carbohydrate. 2019 calories, 89% fat, 11% protein, 0% carbs. KR=? (I'm not at my computer with the spreadsheet I normall use to calculate this)

I also drank 3 750mL bottles of mineral water throughout the day. And I took 1 tsp. of Himalayan sea salt.

I was really weak all day, I think it must be due to my diet being more ketogenic, with the lower protein intake. I also experienced the other symptoms besides muscle soreness: shortness of breath and the "fake" headache. I increased my protein intake a bit today to see if it helps alleviate the symptoms.

I had a BM this morning, 5 1/2 days since the last one. This isn't surprising given my much lower fat intake. It was very dark brown, very heavy and concentrated. Still, no trouble passing it. If you look back, I had no bowel movements since my last high fat meal. The most fat in any meal since 5 1/2 days ago was 100g, and most meals had much lower fat intake. Last night's meal was high in fat.

WOW! I thought Evian(which I've been drinking now for the last few weeks) was high at 80mg calcium/L. How does that San Pellegrino stuff taste? The taste of Evian is very smooth, kind of sweet and has something of the taste of milk in it, very nice.

Pellegrino is sweet and sharp, but not as sharp as Ferrarelle, which I like better. The sharpness comes from the carbonation. Give it a try, it is easy to find. Ferrarelle is a bit harder to locate, my supplier is having trouble reordering it.

Today, my meal consisted of 6 ounces high fat ground beef (78/22) and 8 ounced beef marrow, both raw.

That's 44g protein, 225g fat and 0g carbohydrate. 2211 calories, 92% fat, 8% protein, 0% carbs. KR=4.64

I also drank 4 750mL bottles of mineral water throughout the day. And I took 1 tsp. of Himalayan sea salt.

I am still craving carbs, completely apart from hunger. The strongest cravings are for fruit and dairy. It is strange, maybe there is something else my body needs. I want to stay eating 100% animal foods until I get my physical in November though, just to see where the numbers are at on this diet.

I have been on my current diet for about a month now and I seem to be doing great.

Today I got more marrow bones. I could not get beef kidneys so I got pork kidneys. I did not mind them as much as the pork liver, but I don't like them too much either. I like ruminants much more.

For my meal I ate 3 ounces of pork kidney and 3 ounces of high-fat ground beef, and 9 ounces of marrow fat. I am going to eat adequate protein, high fat for awhile and see how I feel. My meal had 0 carbs, 235g fat and 45.3g protein, 2304 calories and KR=4.67.

With so much fat and such limited protein, my diet will be much more ketogenic. I want to stay on this for the next 2 months, at which time I will have been on an all-animal food diet for 3 months. I plan on going to a doctor and getting some tests done at that time.

Today, my meal consisted of 21 ounces of raw keta/chum salmon.

That's 118g protein, 22.2g fat and 0g carbohydrate. 706 calories, 28% fat, 72% protein, 0% carbs. KR=1.05

I also drank 3 750mL bottles of mineral water throughout the day. And I took 1 tsp. of Himalayan sea salt.

Again I was not hungry all day, not until my meal time. I ate just after 7:30pm yesterday and around 10pm today. I wasn't excited about pork, I think I will give it away to my friends or the cat. The cat loves the liver so getting rid of that will be easy.

Today, my meal consisted of 16 ounces ground pork and 3.5 oz. pork liver, both raw.

That's 97.3g protein, 99.4g fat and 2.4g carbohydrate. 1320 calories, 68% fat, 31% protein, 1% carbs. KR=1.95

I also drank 3 750mL bottles of mineral water throughout the day. And I took 1 tsp. of Himalayan sea salt.

Again I was not hungry all day, not until my meal time. I ate just after 6pm yesterday and around 7:30pm today. I liked the ground pork but not the pork liver. It tasted okay, like beef liver but milder. But the texture was rubbery. Beef liver is moist and slimy in comparison.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Re: Magnesium Intake on RZC
« on: August 23, 2011, 08:36:58 pm »
google "zioh." PaleoPhil can tell you about my hatred for that site ;).

I didn't know ZC/Zero Carb was associated with another forum in people's minds. But I never visited ZiOH or the forum because I came to eating 100% animal foods through raw paleo and not a cooked food diet. I never ate a low-carb diet or Atkins diet, I went from SAD to paleo.

RZC is convenient shorthand, but I never use it in real life. I just tell people what I don't eat, and eventually they figure out what I eat. Actually, most are really confused and just can't understand what I eat, what I consider to be food on my diet. Not that it matters because I don't eat socially, it is not a social act for me anymore.

Here is a picture of my rotting gums. I have no picture to show recent improvements, but my girlfriend tells me that the pink area has expanded, the dark red areas above the teeth used to go much higher but have receded. The brown decay on the teeth used to extend several times further down on the teeth. She looked at my teeth closely back in January, before I started any kind of paleo diet and was still eating a high carb, processed food diet.

I am hoping for improvements and I will continue posting pictures as time goes on.

You'll have to ask GoodSamaritan re this issue as he is the tech wizard.

Re my previous post:- I was unclear:- Obviously I meant that, at first, 90 percent of your diet should consist of the c. 10 percent raw animal foods you like, with the remaining 10 percent consisting of the 90 percent raw animal foods you dislike. After all, it really helps if you enjoy the diet as much as possible from the start.

I agree with TD, just eat mostly what you like, or at least don't dislike intensely. My recent dietary experiment started out 4 parts ground beef, 1 part organ meat and 2 parts marrow fat, by weight. In the end, I wanted more fat and organs, and less ground beef, even though I preferred the ground beef at the start, I preferred the taste and texture. Not only that, I do not really like muscle meat much now. I would be happy just eating organs and fat. You will likely acquire your own taste for certain foods as time goes on.
