Journals / Health blog I been working on.
« on: October 19, 2010, 06:52:03 am »
Hey everyone,

I've been working on a health blog for about 3 months. Just wanted to share with my fellow paleo dieters.
Now I don't want to bend form rules but I don't really tackle the raw food much on my blog. It's mostly has to do with cravings,weight gain/loss, & food upgrade/substitution. I write it in a very simple format in order to make it easy for everyone to understand & apply to their lifestyle.

Let me know what you think.

General Discussion / Lectins & inflamation.
« on: September 28, 2010, 05:17:33 am »
Our consumption of wheat is a major source of inflammation. I have simply stopped eating wheat. I eat no wheat whatsoever. In fact, I eat very few grains now. I strongly recommend that people stop eating wheat, and here’s why.

What we’ve done over the years is we have hybridized wheat to continually get higher and higher amounts of protein in the wheat.

We now have wheat with very high amounts of protein, much higher than 2,000 years ago. There’s a component of this protein, which is actually one of the proteins; it’s a glycoprotein, which is a protein and a sugar molecule together.

This is a class of compounds called lectins. Lectins are in the wheat to protect the wheat from attack by bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

Hot Topics / After sex?
« on: September 20, 2010, 01:53:33 am »
Why is it after having sex, most men want to either leave or have their partner go away?

Every time after sex(any form) I feel the need to be left alone & not bothered. It's nothing personal to my past GF or current. My friends & coworkers all agree that they are the same way.

 I'm aware of the chemicals released after the deed is done. What is the evolution theory to this?

General Discussion / Salmon Roe or caviar?
« on: September 12, 2010, 02:30:19 am »
Does anyone include this in their diet? They're pretty pricey by me ($7 for 2oz jar). I don't think they're raw. All I know is that they are salted in order to preserve the texture.

Off Topic / Just for kicks.

General Discussion / Fish guts
« on: December 24, 2009, 11:38:57 am »
 I just got some wild whitings for what I think is a fair price $4(usa)/lb. I asked the butcher to just scale my fish & save the guts & head. Which he found shocking but I assured him it was for my dog.

 I know it's typical for most customers to discard this. Is it because of hazard issues or just cause of the look & taste? My question is, can I eat the guts/organs or is there a certain type of organ that I should avoid?

General Discussion / Atilla the hun
« on: November 14, 2009, 10:41:47 pm »
Was watching a show on History channel about Atilla the Hun. They mention how raw meat is undigestable to humans & must be cooked because of it's strong muscle fibers. I found this statement very odd. Coming from such an informative station.
One specialist said that's why The Huns put their meat under the saddles. Because the long rides mixed with the horses salty sweat preserved,flavored & cooked the meat. I'm guessing they didn't want to mention raw meat consumption out of liability purpose.

Fast forward to the 8min mark. It's about cravings. I can't find the rest, if anyone does, please post.

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / poultry is heated
« on: November 09, 2009, 11:23:20 am »
At least by my area. My nephew works part time at a slaughter house. He dips hacked off poultry in boiling water (150) for 40seconds intervals, twice. First cycle is to clean, the 2nd is to loosen up the feathers.  Then they're tossed into some sort of rubber cylinder de-feathering machine.

I attempted to eat raw chicken legs once. I lost my appetite when I open the package. Maybe if it was a fresh kill I could of gone along with it. I don't think I'll attempt again though. Red meat just feels right.

Hot Topics / What's so great about AV?
« on: October 24, 2009, 08:43:46 am »
 Don't get me wrong. In no way am I challenging his perspective on RVAF. I personally think that a RVAF diet in general is the most ideal. Simply because it was there since our beginning. In no way am I trying to shake the grounds of this sub forum. If I am! Mods, please delete/move & warn me.  I'm simply looking for opinions of others to help me understand  about the Primal diet's author.

About AV.As far as my limited research, He helped me validate the utilization of raw meat. But I do not find him(or any other Guru) trustworthy. I only question him because when watching his video's. I found that he gave different answers to different sources to how he got started on RVAF or his Primal diet. Ex; 1. was a dream with an old Indian chief,2. was when he spent time with eskimos,3. he was trying to kill himself.  Instead of stating that all 3 lead him to raw meat. He also comes off as a con artist(to many claims without any proof.)

I'm not doubting his diet. I would like to read some response on how Primal Diet effected you(pos or neg) & your thoughts about the author's credibility or anything else that'll help me understand the Primal Diets composer.

General Discussion / Mixed meats in 1 sitting
« on: October 11, 2009, 01:05:15 am »
I have ground bison & a left over chunk of grass-fed fat. Bison is very lean & would like to add some fat. I was thinking of adding olive oil but would like some tips before I do that. I might just add a few chips of the beef fat to the ground bison so I can see how I tolerate it.

In the past when ever I ate cooked mixed animal fats(bacon & hamburger) although it taste great it would leave me bloated & get the runs the next day. Now I've been eating raw meat for about 5 months. I'll vary the meat I eat throughout the week but I haven't mixed any in 1 sitting yet. I know it's tough for our stomach to digest vegetables & meat in one sitting. Just not sure if it's okay with mixed meats. Can anyone post tips or their experience with this?

Health / Cravings
« on: October 08, 2009, 03:09:20 am »
Since switching to raw meat. I've been getting this demonic craving for chocolates. It's very hard to fight it. Not just any chocolate, really dark & bitter 80% or higher. I tried to pin point my actions. I read that it might be a magnesium defficancy. So I've included some salt, raw salmon,tuna & cod on the weekends. It still hits me every now & then but not so bad.

Any tips on how to fight these craving?

General Discussion / Books?
« on: October 06, 2009, 01:56:40 am »
Can anyone recommends me some good books? It doesn't have to be about Paleo diet alone. I'm looking for something more in general about the paleo times. I like this site because every time I visit their are new post with new info, very active members who seem up to date on research & providing links.

I have a few history books that doesn't cover more than a chapter about paleo. I really like the links that most members post on this forum. I'm thinking of printing some out & put it in a binder. I would rather have a book to bring with me to work or to read outside. I hate sitting in front of my computer for to long.

Any recommendations?

General Discussion / When sick
« on: September 29, 2009, 10:37:52 pm »
When you're feeling under the weather. Do you fast or eat normal? I've heard the pros of fasting while sick is that it frees up energy for your body to repair. I've also heard when you're sick, it's good to eat lots of vitamins,minerals to assist your body in healing.

I might just under eat by taking small sips of a liver,fruit,veggie smoothy to help me beat this cold. But what do you guys do to assist you?

Journals / My merge with Raw Paleo
« on: September 28, 2009, 08:51:36 am »
I don't follow a paleo style diet. I've been doing this for about 3 months. Each month I phase out a different part of my diet until I can reach relatively close to a paleo style. ex, end of this month I'm cutting out dairy. My diet right now go as follow

Breakfast-2whole eggs,raw milk or yogurt,1 scoop of whey protein & sometimes banana or honey(depending on my craving)
brunch/lunch-1lb of raw meat(2x 8oz servings)
handful of spinach(just nibble on a few here & there which adds up to about a handful a day)
Snack-some dried berries w almonds
Dinner- 1/2lb of cooked meat(at work don't feel like  explaining myself to co-workers yet. So I'll eat cooked food)

So far I noticed a few changes. My teeth are more grounded. Existing cavity is virtually pain free. Even when I drink hot or ice cold fluids. Whiter & a slicker enamel. I've also noted a stronger scent in body oder when I wake up.Kind of smells like watered down tomato sauce. I'm guessing it as to do with my body's PH balance.

General Discussion / Dry ageing vs highmeat
« on: September 23, 2009, 01:23:56 am »
I understand that high meat has beneficial bacteria, but I'm actually more interested in the preparing methods.I can't stand the smell of sauerkraut. So there for I know I'm not ready for high meat.

 I did however found a site that explained an easy dry aging method by just covering the meat in cloths, leave it inside a corner of the fridge & change the cloths every day for about 3weeks.

I've accidentally done this with paper towels in the past. I've never left the meat in that long. Only about 3days after the printed expiration date. I did notice that the outer layer of meat was tougher, had a more "Meaty" smell & had a slight concentrated taste. I ate it anyways & actually liked it.

Now can this only be done with muscle/fatty meats, is it possible to dry age fish? If anyone has any experience or tips they can post. Please do so. I'm very interested in this. I know options are limited but I would like to know other methods of Raw Paleo approved preserving as well.

Hot Topics / Hoodia
« on: September 19, 2009, 10:21:55 pm »
I'm sure most of you are annoyed as much as I am when every month there is a new ancient super fruit that's been used for thousands of years by some indigenous tribe. My GF's mom told me how she used Hoodia to help her lose weight. I remember hearing about it as an appetite suppressant used by hunters. I found this

Hoodia Gordonii is a plant cultivated along the Kalahari Desert of South Africa. Its effectiveness as an appetite suppressant is not a new discovery. In fact, the natives of the Kalahari Desert have been using it for thousands of years in order to suppress their hunger. They didn’t do it for weight loss though; rather, they used it to keep hunger at bay when on a hunting expedition, since it would be extremely inconvenient to burden themselves with food supplies at the time of hunting.

It is strange that man discovered its beneficial effects on weight loss as late as 1960’s. The logic is that by suppressing your appetite, Hoodia rids you of those unbearable and painful hunger pangs which make weight loss so difficult for you. It other words, Hoodia makes it easier for you to lose weight.

 I don't think there is anything magical in Hoodia. I'm sure those hunters choose it because it was probably the most or only tolerable fiber in their surroundings to fill up their stomaches. Now is this a normal practice in paleo times? like chewing on a twig to help ease hunger? Your opinions?

Welcoming Committee / Hello & questions?
« on: June 17, 2009, 05:12:13 am »

My name is Dan & I'm brand new to the idea of eating raw meats. I do eat rather clean (Along the lines of what's highlighted by Weston A price) I'm also used to eating raw eggs,cheese,Steel cut oats,veggies,almonds & fruits just haven't done it with meat.

I bumped onto this site by accident a few months back. I was looking for info on raw feeding for my dog. I read some of the topics & thought the site was full of Waco's! I did however bookmark the page because a part of me was very curious.

After reading a few articles on raw eating I decided to research some Raw meat eating articles. And now I'm very interested & decided to take a plunge to see how it suits me. I decided to start off slow  by replacing one of my regular meals with one 5oz serving of raw grass-fed stew meat, some blueberries & some veggies for one straight week. Then replacing 1 of my regular meals with 1new raw meal every week. I eat about 6x a day so in like a month in a half I should be fully raw.

Now for the questions.
-Should I eat my food right out the fridge or should I let it sit room temperature for a few minutes?
-Marinade? Is vinegar okay or does that damage the meat?

I have so many more questions but I can't even think of them right now. If anyone has links or any book recommendations please post. I'm looking for mainly recipe's but I"m also interested in the history,Peoples results (bad & good) pro's + cons.

Thank you very much & I'm sorry I originally thought this site was full of Waco's.
