Primal Diet / Phoenix, AZ RAW milk places?? On Vacation...
« on: September 24, 2011, 03:12:33 am »

Primal Diet / Thin/Runny Honey Batch (Honey Pacifica)
« on: September 11, 2011, 12:25:41 pm »
I have been buying cold packed honey from honey pacifica for a little while now and just recently have been getting it shipped in larger bottles to my house. Usually this wildflower honey is very thick, I would be unable to pour it out.

This batch that I just received recently is very runny and readily pours out of the jar. I'm not sure if that is just the way the batch is this summer, or if maybe it got too hot in the UPS truck when being shipped. Its also much darker than usual. I don't know much about this sort of thing so I thought I would ask.

What do you guys think? Any experience with this brand recently, is this normal?

General Discussion / Fresh Spring Water Questions...
« on: February 28, 2011, 02:59:23 am »
So, there are no springs plotted near my location on, which does not surprise me. People are not all that health conscious around here. So what I have been doing is looking at topographical maps that have spring locations marked, but I have a some questions.

From Wikipedia "Non-artesian springs may simply flow from a higher elevation through the earth to a lower elevation and exit in the form of a spring, using the ground like a drainage pipe."

Is this type of spring undesirable? How do I know I am not just getting snow water melting from the top of the mountain? Is what I am looking for an artesian well only?

Hot Topics / Opinions and thoughts on unsaturated fats?
« on: January 14, 2011, 02:03:24 pm »
So I can't say I have ever looked at unsaturated fats negatively, by the media or otherwise, but recently this video came along. Want to hear some of your guy's thoughts on the matter. I know the video is titled nuts, but really it sounds like the subject is anything including unsaturated fats.

Health / White Tongue-what is it?
« on: December 18, 2010, 11:30:39 am »
Basically just a question regarding myself. I have a slightly white tongue (meaning not nearly as bad as some google images), and was much more noticeable a few minutes ago when I was thirsty with a dry mouth. Almost like it was peach fuzz.

Is this normal, or something I should be concerned with?

Hot Topics / Dr. Mercola says to eat NO FISH?
« on: December 02, 2010, 02:58:19 pm »
"Sadly, contamination of our oceans and waterways is so great that I don't advise eating ANY fish, whether farm-raised or wild-caught, unless you can verify its purity."


General Discussion / Liver "the filter"? Good to eat?
« on: October 30, 2010, 11:24:48 am »
So I have been eating beef liver for awhile now, and I enjoy it, but I do have my moments of wondering if its really that great in my case.

My case being, I am not 100% sure my cows I get are completely organic, but they are 100% grass fed. I really like my beef supplier because he gives me a good price, is friendly, and always asks if I "want anything extra" and throws things in for me at times.

I am just not sure if he gives any kind of hormones or antibiotics, I believe he has mentioned he does not give any--but I still wonder being that I think he has some kind of job in pet pharmaceuticals.

ANYWAY, is this still beneficial to eat even given the chance the cows are given "something" that the liver would have to detoxify. Would the liver itself have any of these toxins in any amount to worry about?

While I am on this subject--in ounces what is the upper limit of liver consumption per day? I have a lot of it. lol

Hot Topics / Raw meat eater on TLC's "freaky eaters" show
« on: October 17, 2010, 08:47:50 am »
Anyone seen it? Along side with a woman who drinks gallons of soda a day, a man who eats nothing but cheese burgers, and a woman who only eats French fries.

Anyway if you haven't in short his brother is afraid of him getting sick, somehow gets in contact with this show and they provide an "intervention". This includes some kind of nutritionist and psychologist showing up to meet with him and talk about his "disorder".

Him and the psychologist talk and they eventually come to the conclusion that he eats raw meat because he does not feel he fulfills his family's goals haha. Later he visits the doctors office and the doctor pulls out a bag of raw beef that is said to have come from his fridge and is tested positive for salmonella, although he has never gotten sick. I believe he mentioned he has been doing this for six years. They go on to do a stool test and he tests positive for a parasite (but has never had any symptoms), and.... something about indigested proteins in the gut. ??

Anyway what ends up happening is the nutritionist says he will get great abs if he fixes this indigested protein problem, by removing raw meats. He ends up giving up red meats because he cannot stand the taste of cooked beef, and I only assume dropped eating raw.


General Discussion / Buying 1/2 beef--what should I ask for?
« on: July 27, 2010, 02:08:03 pm »
So, I am going to order 1/2 beef tomorrow sometime, and my question is--besides all the included muscle meat, heart, and liver----what is reasonable to ask for?

I would really like to get some good fat and stuff, but I really don't know what I would be asking for, and if it is reasonable to ask for it to purchase.

For example I would think brains would be out of the question since this is a family owned business, despite how much I would want it lol.

What are some other fats and such I would be stupid not to ask about?

Exercise / Bodybuilding / Possible to be a competitive lifter on RPD?
« on: June 18, 2010, 04:39:28 am »
Hey guys, I am new and kind of testing the waters before making the plunge to becoming a full RPDer. The real question is: Is it possible to eat ENOUGH to be competitive in strength sports? I am talking about Olympic weightlifting and Powerlifting--not general fitness, or body weight strength.

Just a little worried that if I were to make the switch and for whatever reason be unable to eat enough and end up losing a lot of muscle, and strength.

Hey guys hows it going? Been reading around this site for a few days now, great site! Decided I think I want to take the plunge and try this thing out for myself. A little background on me....for the past couple years dietary health and exercise (strength training) has become a huge interest and hobby of mine and I have been trying my best to juggle these two things to find balance. For the last couple years I have been on relatively low carb diets, all organic and grass fed meats (cooked though..), wild fish, etc.

I have had gut problems for as long as I can remember (probably something to do with being on antibiotics for a long period as a child). I should mention that for about 6-10 months I was finally able to produce a stool and felt great, I thought I had my problem all figured out. Then I recently got some kind of stomach flu and lost almost 10 lbs in a week (still losing weight) from being unable to eat my normal diet with loss of appetite and constant, frequent bowl "problems". The stomach pains only lasted a couple days, but the bowl "problem" has been persistent and has not let up one bit. I feel fine besides feeling a little malnourished, low appetite, etc. but I have this sinking feeling that the flu has passed, and this problem is here to stay, just like it has for years before that. Well that's what got me thinking that maybe my current diet is not as perfect as I had thought, maybe its time to try something else. My old diet is repetitive, and it usually looks something like...

-6 cups raw milk (taking this out today...this amount worked with me in the past--but maybe not anymore)
-10oz x2 meals daily of grass fed beef shank, cooked in crock pot cause this stuff is TOUGH (and the only grass fed meat I can find for under $8 a lb...)
-10oz x2 meals daily of wild Alaskan salmon (steamed)
-around 90 grams of soaked unpasteurized almonds through the day--sometimes substituted for real sourdough
-fruits, cultured veggies, etc. Greens like salad don't seem to digest at all.
(every day.) I have some questions regarding all of this.

-As of now, Weightlifting, gaining muscle and strength, etc. is a slight priority over diet, meaning I NEED to be able to eat enough to make progress. Now the reason I mention this is because on the front page of this site it mentions people overdoing it, and eating TOO much raw meats and having issues. Is there a way I can make this work then? Are there any competitive lifters on the board with success with this kind of eating? I realize I may not need as much food as I previously did, but I am still thinking I will need a good bit more than the average Joe.

-Like mentioned on my diet post and in a little more detail, the only grass fed meats I can find around here (in southern california) is sold at whole foods market. They are stocked with Eel River beef. Anyway I do have a budget, and I can't afford any other cut than the beef shanks (cow leg). Now I don't know if anyone here has tried this cut, but its full of stringy fat, and is very tough to cut, let alone eat. Has anyone had any success with this meat, or any ideas on what I can do with this problem? I have ground it up in the food processor once and the texture about made me sick--but maybe its something I can get used to. I can also get grass fed beef liver somewhat affordable, and have eating that raw a couple times, its actually much easier to eat than the meat.

-Any raw meat rules or rules of thumb? Like for example how many days can thawed raw meat be kept in fridge. Or how many times can you re-freeze and re-defrost a single piece of meat without worrying about anything. (I think whole foods always gets their meat products frozen on the truck, then defrosts them and cuts them for display...then I bring them home to freeze again...etc.)

Those three questions are about all I have got for the moment, other than just wondering how I am going to get enough food in, what kind of things I can eat to get my calories up, etc. As you can see the milk and nuts are a huuge part of calorie intake, I have been drinking raw eggs to try to get used to the raw thing--so that can replace some, but we are talking about like 1500 calories lol

Anyway I really hope I can figure out a way to make this work with my current lifestyle--and hopefully I can finally put this gut problem to rest... any and all questions/comments/help is greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time!
