General Discussion / Coconut Oil with Fruit?
« on: February 02, 2012, 12:53:59 am »
I know a lot of people here are worried about the insulin spike that comes with sugary fruit consumption.  (myself included)

Do you think it would be beneficial to eat a spoonful of coconut oil whenever you consume a serving of fruit?

Thoughts?  Experiences?

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Tighter tendons?
« on: October 18, 2011, 09:31:29 am »
Question to zero carbers.   Have any of you experienced a tightening of your body's tendons, giving you better posture, structure, speed, and/or explosiveness?  Has anybody experienced any pain symptom relief from zc or tightening of their tendons?

Feel free to post some goals that you want to share that you have either set for yourself or already achieved.

General Discussion / Organs and Pet food
« on: August 15, 2011, 12:05:27 am »
Hey guys,

It's been a while since I posted.  About 3 weeks ago I went off raw for about 2 weeks.  I felt like shit.  I fasted last Monday and I've been RZC again for the last 6 days.  I wan't to incorperate organs into my diet but, I can't stand whole organs, also I tried some slankers pet food today hoping I would be able to tolerate that.  I ate maybe 2oz of pet food with some muscle meat and bone marrow, then I had too big a bite I think.  I started gaging and I nearly threw up :(  I will try again tomorrow and hopefully will be able to eat a little more and be a little more used to the flavor and consistency.  I think maybe it will take time to adjust to organs the same way it took time to adjust and be able to eat raw meat.

Any advice?

General Discussion / VCO Detox
« on: June 28, 2011, 09:17:42 am »
Hey All,

I am considering trying the Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) Detox that is reccomended by GS.

I am a little worried that it might set back my health a bit.

I was wondering who on the forum has done it?  And if the results were positive or negative?

I know I contacted a few of you via PM, but feel free to comment on your experiences as well.


Exercise / Bodybuilding / Carb Cycling?
« on: June 21, 2011, 01:55:06 pm »
Carb Cycling, who's done it?  Did it work?  Did you gain Muscle?  How did it make you feel?

I was thinking of trying carb cycling for fat loss/muscle gain.  I heard Randy Roach talk about it in a radio interview but he didn't give specifics.

I was thinking two Zero Carb days a week(non-consecutive).  One unlimited carb day per week, and four low carb days a week.  How low do you think low carb days should be?

General Discussion / Coconut butter and Raw honey combo?
« on: June 21, 2011, 11:39:55 am »
Anyone try a coconut butter and raw honey combo?

If so how did it taste? 

How did it sit in your stomach?

How much did you eat?

What what was your coconut butter to honey ratio?

General Discussion / Grassfed Hamburger in Fridge Smells Bad?
« on: June 14, 2011, 01:48:29 pm »
Hey guys, I bought some grassfed hamburger meat from a co-op store on Friday last week.  I think the animal was killed on Wednesday last week.  I stored it in a glass container uncovered in my fridge.  Tonight when I opened the fridge there was a bad smell.  I found the smell to be coming from the hamburger.  Should I still eat it?

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Salt, Do you eat it? How much?
« on: May 31, 2011, 07:45:58 am »
I was wondering who eats salt and who doesn't, and how much you each eat?  Also is there anyone who hasn't eaten salt for years and had no bad effects?

General Discussion / Avocado Oil?
« on: May 28, 2011, 09:49:10 am »
Any thoughts on cold pressed avocado oil?  I think is very similar to cold pressed olive oil.

General Discussion / Sleeping 10-12 hours a night
« on: May 27, 2011, 02:33:35 pm »
Hey all,

I've been sleeping 10-12 hours a night because I find it difficult to get up in the morning.  I am trying to break myself of this habit.  But on the other hand it might be what my body needs right now.  On the third hand, I want to be able to do more in the day.  And on the fourth hand, (everyone has four hands right?) am I just being lazy staying in bed all day?

Diet Note:  I've been sticking to raw pretty well, with a few weekend binges of SAD food and alcohol (red wine).

General Discussion / Sunburn Treatment?
« on: May 11, 2011, 12:44:58 pm »
Hey guys,

I was getting some good sun this afternoon, but I got too much.  I am pretty burnt. 

Any raw paleo cures for sunburn? 

I was thinking of rubbing raw bone marrow on my burn to see if it improves.

General Discussion / Blood in marrow?
« on: May 08, 2011, 08:58:47 am »
Hey I was getting some marrow out of the bone (the soft kind of marrow) and about 30% of the marrow was red and goupy.  Is it bad?  Should I eat it?

General Discussion / Raw Trout?
« on: May 08, 2011, 08:20:25 am »
Raw trout, anyone eat it?  Opinions?

My stepdad caught 10 trout today in a pond not far from my parents house.  I live in Wisconsin, I think the ponds and streams in the area are clean, but I don't know for sure.

What's everyones take on Raw fresh water fish?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / 1 Fruit a day.
« on: May 06, 2011, 03:07:40 am »
Hello all,

I was interested if anyone out there just eats 1 fruit a day for carbs?

What do people consider LC compared to VLC?

For those that are VLC, how many carbs do you eat a day?  Do you eat carbs every day?  How many carbs in a week?  and What is your source of carbs?

General Discussion / Blue/Green Specks In Raw Grassfed Hamburger
« on: March 26, 2011, 12:41:52 am »
Hey guys,

I have found small blue/green pieces of something in just about all my grassfed hamburger.  I pick them out when I see them, but I am sure I've eaten a lot.  Does anyone know what they are?

General Discussion / Vein in Meat
« on: March 12, 2011, 03:54:31 am »
Hey everyone,

Quick question.  I was cutting up some meat off of a marrow bone and I found a vein (what I think is a vein) next to the bone.  Question is, should I eat it?

Journals / Max's Journal
« on: February 17, 2011, 04:02:51 am »
Hello everyone,

It has been a while since I've been on the forum.  I hadn't done much raw, but about a month ago (around my birthday) I fell off the Paleo wagon.  I am eating paleo again as of last week.  This week I finally picked up my side of grassfed beef.  I ate half a raw steak Monday.  Then Tuesday I ate a whole raw steak today (Wednesday) I ate one as well.

So my meal intake looks like

8-10 ounces of raw grassfed beef.

100 grams of carbs from fruit. (Apples, Pears, Cantaloupe, Blueberries, Oranges)

Cooked Grassfed beef (my lunch I take to work)

I am having a hard time eating the raw meat.  I sometimes gag if I bite off too big a chunk.  Right now I am using a lot of willpower to get it down.

I will try and give updates as often as possible.  I am hoping this journal will keep me accountable.  I appreciate comments and advice.

Hi everyone,

I've read the forums for the past few months and I am excited to try Raw Paleo.  Previously my WOE was cooked paleo (meat, mostly grassfed), and around 50g of carbs per day from fruit.

I am getting a side of grassfed beef towards the end of January.  I am trying to prepare myself for eating Raw beef.  I am currently (this moment) eating Raw yellowtail tuna.  I am finding it difficult.  That is why I am writing this post, to further my resolve.

I've finished eating a half a pound of tuna raw, I will try to do the same tomorrow.  Thanks to all posters on this forum for your inspiring stories.
