Hello everybody,

Recently for the last couple of months I have been eating as my primary meat source, about 3x a day for a couple months. I've noticed that over the last month I've been getting progressively worse soreness in muscles and joints,and I have not been doing extra exercise. I was wondering if it can be due to the meat antigens, that over time have started to cause autoimmune reactions, and whether switching up the meat sources would resolve this issue? I normally rotate all other types of foods like carbs, fruits, etc.

Thanks for the help!

Hot Topics / Psychedelic experience on mustard greens
« on: May 08, 2013, 11:26:16 am »
I had a psychedelic experience from mustard greens. I weighed out about 40 grams of the substance, about one half serving of vegetables. I took the first mouthful and bit it, chewed, and swallowed it. As I swallowed it, I could feel the heat in my body rise, my nostrils were flaring, and this burning sensation traveled up my throat into my mouth. It felt like a dragon blowing hot fire out of its mouth.

I took the 2nd bite. More burning, but this time it it surged into my head. My brain felt like it was exploding into a thousand miles. As soon as it came, it left. The taste in my mouth felt like wasabe from a sushi dish. 3rd bite, now my body was becoming unresponsive to the flames. It still burned, and it was hard to think, but I no longer felt scared. I knew the initial, middle, and final stages of this plant. It was no longer a mystery. I was becoming blunt to it's substance.

Afterwards, I had to write this to share this experience with you. It's important to share these experiences with each other because we can learn a lot from each other. And though the experience itself was quite distasteful and painful, I am experiencing a lingering euphoria that has started ever since I took my last bite.

Was Lao Tzu good at the art of pick up and seduction? My guess is no, he was not.

Hey what's up everybody,

In my genetics class, we have a textbook and in a chapter on gene mutation, it says:

"Another group of chemicals that cause mutations are known as adduct-forming agents. A DNA adduct is a substance that covalently binds to DNA, altering its conformation and interfering with replication and repair. Two examples of adduct-forming stances are acetaldehyde (a component of cigarette smoke) and heterocyclic amines (HCAs). HCAs are cancer-causing chemicals that are created during the cooking of meats such as beef, chicken, and fish. HCAs are formed at high temperatures from amino acids and creatine. Many HCAs covalently bind to guanine bases. At least 17 different HCAs have been linked to the development of cancers, such as those of the stomach, colon, and breast. " pg 383 Concepts of Genetics 10th edition, by Klug, Cummings, Spencer, and Palladino

This is interesting because this textbook is part of a mainstream science curriculum at a university. Pretty cool since it gives credence to raw paleo foods (or abstinence from meat). Although a family member pointed out that it didn't describe in this passage what high temperatures were.

Health / Middle of night cravings -- help please
« on: April 05, 2013, 11:25:10 pm »
Hello everybody,

Been focused and selective about eating for a couple years now, but the last 6 months or so, have developed this bad habit of waking up in the middle of the night, in a half sleep-stupor state, and eating a couple of handfuls of nuts like almonds, cashews, whatever is available. Sometimes even eat granola bars, lots of em, and fruit, like a big bowl of dates.

personally, don't think this is caloric or nutritionally related, even though the foods have been munching on are very high calorie and sometimes starchy.

Anybody have any advice or suggestions? Typically, if determined, can withhold reaching out for food for a short period of time, maybe a few days or a week, but then the habit creeps back up. Please help!

Hey what's up everybody!

I hurt my vastus lateralis a month or so ago, it's not that bad so I keep training on it but it doesn't get better. it doesn't get worse either. Anybody know stretches or other types of things to speed up its recovery?

it's the outer part of the thigh, on the anterior or front side of the body

library, then you can get the affordable upgrade
package here...

General Discussion / Yolk color
« on: July 31, 2011, 11:00:34 am »
I always thought the darker the yolk the healthier the egg -- but I'm reading online about how cracked corn can cause yolks to become orange too. So if that's true, the color of the yolk won't be indicative of pasture time for the birds.

So does that mean yolks that are not bright orange -- even if supposedly pastured in the summertimes......are still pasture raised?  I don't get it.....some conventional organic eggs have on occasion seemed more dark orange than pasture raised  organic eggs

Off Topic / Lasik surgery?
« on: July 15, 2011, 12:25:34 pm »
What's the opinion on eye surgery to correct vision?


Although I'd like to say I'm consuming raw eggs and raw milk from grass-fed only animals, it seems business and industry has corrupted century long traditions. So I've compromised for some time now with eating free range, fertile eggs that are fed grains, and pasture raised organic raw milk that is also supplemented with a good amount of grains.

Now my question is whether these foods have advantages despite being fed grains. I know for one thing, the omega 6 content will substantially increase with grain feeding and without grass, the omega 3 content will diminish significantly. So it's possible healthy foods like raw eggs can become unhealthy with abnormal fatty acid ratios.

So maybe there is some level of balance, where a little bit is better than nothing....and maybe that's where I want to go with this. Currently I'm eating about 4 dozen of these eggs per week and about a gallon or two of milk a week. The thing is, I really like variety....for taste and nutritional sake if I stopped drinking the milk and decreased this egg consumption, I'd probably increase the meat intake of different wild fish and other shellfish, and grass fed meats.

I guess one way to ask what I'm trying to get at here, is that is grass fed beef/ lamb automatically, no matter what, better than free range fertile eggs that are fed grains (and have access to pasture...though I don't know how much access, the yolks vary from yellow to deep orange..even within 1 dozen's not really a consistent color from egg to egg to say one way or the other unfortunately).


Hi everybody

I just got an order of organ-meats from Northstarbison from online, since they have 100% grass fed bison available. I get frozen out of convenience, but they have fresh available . It would be too costly to order weekly from them because of shipping, so I just order a bunch at once frozen.

Anyways, last time I ordered from them, I noticed something peculiar about the kidneys. One of the packages, was normal red looking color. It tastes good too. But in another package, a separate one, the kidney looked greenish color, and it had a much stronger smelling odor and taste than the previously described kidney.

So I didn't think too much about it, other than hoping that I wouldn't get any green looking kidneys on a future order. So I made that order a few days ago and got the shipment today. I got some heart, liver, tongue, kidneys, pancreas, testicles, spleen, and suet.

Well, out of the 3 kidneys that I ordered, 2 of them have a similar greenish hue to them...especially one of them. In addition, the tongue has a greenish hue on one particular side. Can you please look at these pictures and tell me what you think, and/ or if you've had any experience with anything like greenish colored organ, specifically kidney, but also tongue (though this is my first time ordering tongue so I don't know what it tastes like).

Here is a picture of 2 kidneys (top) and liver ( bottom) . the Liver is for comparison in terms of the color. I've gotten kidneys the same color as this liver, so is there something wrong with these greenish colored kidneys, especially the top left one?

Here is a solo picture of the kidney that was in the top left part of the last photo

and less importantly but still curious to know, in terms of this green tinge layer on one side of this tongue:

I appreciate your opinions, thanks. The other organs seem bright red and appear fresh. Since this has happened with the kidneys in particular once before, maybe I will just not buy kidneys from them. But, if there is nothing wrong with this greenish hue, then maybe it is no big deal, reiterate the taste and smell are much stronger.

Thank you

General Discussion / Saturated Fat from beef?
« on: May 29, 2011, 01:35:26 pm »
How good is the saturated fat from grass fed beef? I am used to eating the chuck roast cut, which has a lot of fat. But, it gets to the point where the chuck roast is so much fat and not enough meat. I get a lot of fat already though, from coconuts, eggs, sometimes avocados, (and cream). But to add the fat that comes from chuck roast, seems like and feels like an awful lot of fat. So i am considering getting a more expensive cut that has less fat, specifically the sirloin cut. This cut is very lean with basically no significant amounts of fat.

What's your take on saturated fat from beef? Maybe the fat is addicting or something because I'm having a difficult time deciding whether to stop getting the chuck roast cut and to start getting a more lean cut with more meat.

Health / Blood test results from 5/6/11 compared with 2/10/10
« on: May 11, 2011, 10:08:21 am »
Hi guys

Here are my blood test results. the first 3 are from 5/6/11. The last 3 are from february of 2010. I began eating raw foods around that time, maybe march or april of 2010.


Here is 2/12/10:

Notice cholesterol has shot upto 259 from 147. LDL has shot upto 191 from 96.

Is this something to require a modification of what I'm eating? I've been eating a lot of lamb and beef (i.e. red meat) and some bison organs, and less fish/seafood. Plus a good amount of eggs, at certain times. Should I switch up the ratios and eat less red meat and eggs and more fish? I can't find quality fowl meat around here.
Thank you for your suggestions.


hey guys, how are you?

My dentist recommended two fillings to met today, after I got some X-rays done. I'm not sure what to do, apparently the cavities are small and only noticeable by X-rays. I would only want to have unhealthy teeth drilled, only if it's necessary. Here is a pic of the's the last 2 molar teeth(if you can find them) that my dentist wants to fill. \

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / How to tell if eggs are fertilized?
« on: May 01, 2011, 10:41:37 am »
Hi lately I've been getting eggs from a local farmer. Some of the eggs have a orange color in the yolk.

The eggs are labeled as fertilized on their website, but how can I tell personally if the egg is fertilized or not? I read and saw pictures online about the white spot on the yolk is more circular and bigger, and looks like a bulls eye with a lighter circle around the white circle. . . and the unfertilized egg is less circular and smaller. On the pictures I can see the differences easily, but when I try to check if these eggs are's less easy for me to distinguish it. Plus I'm not sure if some are fertilized and maybe some aren't. Is that natural for some eggs to be unfertilized, even if there is a rooster around the egg laying hens?

Hey guys

From what I've seen on the forums, farmed oysters are ok to eat in terms of farmed meats. I went to this website of a major supplier that sells some oysters locally..

And on their site it explains how their oysters are genetically manipulated to become tripload, rather than the normal diploid set. This makes them sterile, however, the website writes that they are less "mushy" in the summer months and easier to farm/breed.

Is this like a seedless fruit and Ok to eat ,,,,,,,,or is it like  a GMO plant like soy or corn?

General Discussion / Triploid oysters?
« on: April 04, 2011, 05:58:19 am »
Anybody ever heard of these farm grown oysters? Are they safe?

Let's consider all the foods we're discussing are paleo foods.

How would an Instincto explain acquired tastes? That is, initially something may taste bad but after several samples over a period of time a person starts to not mind the taste of the food and eventually may come to enjoy it. If a person is following their instinct, they would never go past the first meal of that food and therefore would never develop the acquired taste. But not every food that requires an acquired taste is necessarily a bad food.....or would an Instincto say that the food is bad- for that person in that moment?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / sweet potato raw tastes good
« on: January 05, 2011, 12:15:48 pm »
i tried it today, it tastes sweet, crunchy, and juicy. tasty!

If local access to quality meats is limited in terms of variety, what suggestions are available as far as eating healthy with regards to meats?  Just eat the same meats everyday? Or is there some better option..

Can you drink your own urine to hydrate yourself? How long would this technique extend your life? also how would you hydrate yourself if you were stuck on a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean?
