And I have eaten clay in the past, though I cannot say I noticed any measurable affect from it.

Thanks for sharing Dingeman. My guess as to what is happening:

The raw cheese is giving your body something it desperately needs, and one or more things it desperately does not. The thing it needs is a source of raw animal fat. The thing(s) it does not need is various other things in the raw cheese, like residual lactose, casein, or various other things that often trigger an inflammatory response or low-grade allergic reaction in people. My guess is that your sleepiness (fatigue) is due to one or both of these effects. While the raw cheese offers a little something good, on net I suspect it is hurting you.

There are plenty of ways to get raw animal fat besides dairy. Examples include: raw beef suet (or from sheep, or goat), bone marrow from ruminants, back fat from ruminants, etc. I gravitate to fat taken off 100% grass-fed animals killed in the spring or early summer because their omega 3 content is at its highest then due to the types of fresh forage they have been eating. If you seek this out and eat it instead of the cheese, I suspect you will enjoy the benefits you wrote about without any of the drawbacks.

I hope this works out as well as you think it will. I am curious why the demonetization issue pushed them away from a 2 day shoot? Plenty of ways to monetize YouTube vids outside of YouTube. They do not pay very well anymore anyway; most of the advertising revenue generated by videos that are monetized goes to YouTube now. Patreon seems to accept content like what you are talking about without complaint. Sv3rige is on Patreon, and while he does not make tons of money he earns a significant amount each month.

The title of this thread seems a bit misleading. I do not understand why you called it war against vegans, when the article you linked to implies a war against meat eaters.

Tapeworms have multiple life stages, and which life stage a person is infected by makes a huge difference in what symptoms they will be faced with. If you are infected with a larvae, it will turn into an adult in your GI tract and you will end up with a tapeworm in your gut. This is the basis of using tapeworms as therapy. They take some of the nutrition you eat, but otherwise do little harm.

If, on the other hand, you eat tapeworm eggs, the eggs will hatch in your GI tract and the larvae will migrate into your tissues where they will encyst. This can be terribly deleterious for people, and when people die from tapeworm infestations this is generally what happens. The article linked above points to a person who ended up with tapeworm larvae encysting in their brain.

I wonder if cooking the bean is necessary for the fermentation to work? I know that you can eat garbanzos raw if you soak and sprout them. I might try making natto from raw, soaked and sprouted garbanzos.

Intriguing. It had never occurred to me to make my own natto. I have always bought it from the store, at exorbitant prices. Your posts on it here have inspired me. I will probably try making it with a locally-grown bean of some sort, and maybe try a batch with garbanzos.

I am planning on producing, in the near future, a video on the costs and benefits of cooking. I want it to be honest and thorough, at least as far as naming all of the costs and benefits. What are some points that folks would particularly like me to research and touch on in the vid?

I would love to get in the head of die-hard vegans and see how they rationalize holding on to such an extreme dietary ideal. I cannot fathom it.

I owned her book at one point. It was okay. Basically an abbreviated version of Aajonus Vonderplanitz' book We Want to Live without the crazy stories, and many of her recipes are taken from his other recipe book. If you have AV's books, hers is really not worth it. She just repeats what he said in his books and seminars. I listened to a recent podcast she was on and she said she has had to abandon the raw diet to a significant degree after having her first baby.

Hi folks, I just released an episode of my Healing Culture Podcast featuring Derek Nance, who posts here using the handle Sabertooth. It is episode 14 of the podcast, and in addition to being able to listen on my website (linked) you can also listen on most podcatchers (Apple, Stitcher, Google Play, etc.) as well as on YouTube. The YouTube vid does not have video, unfortunately, it is just the audio file with my podcast's logo as a background. Here is the episode's description:

Derek Nance was featured in a 2013 Vice article titled This Guy’s Eaten Nothing But Raw Meat For Five Years, and in a documentary series called A Million Ways to Live. He talks with Eric about what drew him to make raw meat a cornerstone of his diet, the benefits of intermittent fasting, and the importance of choosing quality meats in a raw food diet, among other things.

For whatever it is worth, I thought so highly of AV when I first read his books back in the early 2000s. I still respect the man. He was definitely a trailblazer. I have long since abandoned his ideas regarding raw dairy, veggie juice and raw honey. While I might eat these things occasionally, I absolutely do not treat them as dietary cornerstones.

I think Sabertooth lives in Kentucky, and if I remember he had an AirBnB going for a while. Hopefully he will chime in.

I am not full-time carnivore; I cycle through various eating regimens and happen to be in carnivore now. For me, carnivore is only grass-fed meat and wild-caught fish, mostly salmon. No dairy, and fruit and veg are eaten only as condiments with meat.

I do not see it as boring. I get fulfillment from other areas of life, and do not need an endorphin boost from eating food. If you want the food to taste better, try adding a little horseradish or mustard or pickled ginger as a condiment. If your boredom leads to loss of appetite, that might mean it is time to fast for a while, until your appetite comes back naturally. And if none of that works for you, it might mean it is time to stop being carnivore for a while. I do not hold a carnivore diet as a moral or ideological ideal. It is a tool. There are times when it works, and when it should be used, and there are times when other eating patterns would work better to achieve various goals, at which points it should be abandoned in favor of superior alternatives.

I see a raw carnivore diet as a time of intense healing. The diet contains no fiber, which means it is very easy on the small intestine, which can be damaged by fiber for those who suffer from leaky gut syndrome. One of the big reasons I cycle through carnivore is to give my intestines a rest, and allow them to heal in the event that leaky gut symptoms are brewing. I also find it much easier to gain weight on raw carnivore than on more diverse diets, so use it as a period to bulk up. I box, lift weights, and circuit train, and will spend periods where I do not eat carnivore to get stronger and leaner, then use carnivore periods to put on muscle mass, then go through periods where I might fast for awhile (drink only water) to enjoy some of the benefits of autophagy.

This is a cycle that works well for me. Obviously, it might not work well for others, so do not just mimic it. I always treat eating patterns as an ongoing experiment with an 'N' of 1.

Have you ever seen the 30 Bananas a Day website? You should start one called 30 Eggs a Day. That would be a fun project, I think.

Thanks for sharing this. I might reach out to him about coming on my podcast or recording a YouTube video.

In the video I eat sushi grade salmon, which means it was frozen for over 2 weeks well below zero F.

Greetings folks. I have alluded to my intentions to start a YouTube Channel, and have finally gotten around to do this. Here is a video where I talk about eating raw wild-caught salmon.

Eric Eats Wild-Caught King Salmon

Comments, feedback, and Patreon support are all welcome. I am particularly interested in folks' thoughts on whether I should put 'raw' in the title of the video, or just leave it as is.

Fun vid, thanks for sharing this.

I most often buy organs. I bought a grass-fed beef heart this morning at the farmers' market for $4.50 per pound. That is probably about $10 per kg, or around 8 or 9 Euro per kg.

25
You spent over 100 Euro for just over 2 kg of meat? That sounds insanely expensive!
