General Discussion / Liver to Go
« on: January 16, 2009, 06:05:23 am »
Just wanted wish everyone a fond raw farewell. I'm off to try and live for a while in the real world. I've been a little addicted to several forums so it's time to make a break. On that note here is my farewell dish. This evening- Raw Chicken Liver with Basil, Tarragon and Soy Sauce.

Besh wishes to all,
Xeta  ;D

Hot Topics / Longevity- Calorie Quality vs Calorie Quantity
« on: December 30, 2008, 09:06:37 pm »
I found an interesting article this morning and I thought I'd share in case you've never seen it  ;D

In April, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a study challenging the conventional wisdom that eating less promotes longevity. The study found that the very thin run roughly the same risk of early death as the overweight. And now the tide seems to be turning against a common explanation for the long-standing observation that restricting food in lab organisms from yeast to mice prolongs life.

Hot Topics / Food Restriction and AGEs
« on: December 25, 2008, 06:06:06 am »
Since this is not specifically about 'fats'  I thought it should have it's own thread.

I found this very interesting:

Reduction of intrarenal and arterial AGE accumulation by food restric
tion was confirmed by immunostaining in optical microscopy
Age-related changes in arterial and kidney structures as polyuria
and proteinuria were mainly prevented by food restriction. These
data indicate that chronic food restriction reduces the accumula
tion of AGE and preserves the structure and function of the rena
and cardiovascular systems in lean rats, although it did not affec
survival of the animals between 10 and 30 mo.

Which once again brings us back to the possible importance of Calorie Restriction. Perhaps more important than not eating a hot soup over how much soup is actually eaten.

Best wishes,
Avalon  :D

Hot Topics / Tainted Meats :(

An Arizona researcher found 40 percent of meat products tested from three national chain stores were contaminated with bacteria normally associated with severe hospital infections. Federal health officials, however, say more study is needed to determine whether C. diff is transmitted through food.

General Discussion / Ants: The Other Something Meat
« on: October 04, 2008, 11:35:28 pm »
Ants, I must say, I have never tried. But I would, once at least. We have plenty of ants here in FL. but they are teeny tiny. Any Ant eaters here?  ;D

Off Topic / Kung Fu Hustle
« on: September 02, 2008, 08:01:53 pm »
A bit off topic. Anyone see this movie? 'Kung Fu Hustle' I think it's hysterical! I'd seen it before, but yesterday picked it up, widescreen for $3.00 at Big Lots! Can't wait to watch it.

General Discussion / Vegans and Salt
« on: September 01, 2008, 07:09:15 pm »
This morning I received a Newsletter from Dr. McDougall. Yes, Dr. McDougall. I'm not convinced no animal foods are necessary, but at the same time I believe there are many valuable nutrients in potatoes and they are sooo low cal if eaten correctly and FILLING! and low cost! Don't get me started because this is about SALT.

So even the 'good' Dr. feels people are misguided about the evil SALT empire.

Quote from the British Medical Journal (2002):3
“Lowering sodium intake may have adverse effects on vascular endothelium through stimulation of the renin-angiotensin system and on serum total and low density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations. In cohort studies, lower salt intake in people with hypertension has been associated with higher levels of cardiovascular disease and in general populations with greater all cause mortality.”
Quote about the NHANES III study from the Journal of General Internal Medicine (2008)4
“Observed associations of lower sodium with higher mortality were modest and mostly not statistically significant. However, these findings also suggest that for the general US adult population, higher sodium is unlikely to be independently associated with higher CVD or all-cause mortality.”

Don't shoot the messenger  :o

General Discussion / Sardines over Salmon
« on: August 21, 2008, 04:29:25 am »
(just in case you eat cooked once in a while, or can find raw sardines)

Sadly, I've been eating more sardines than salmon and other fish lately which is why I decided to Google Sardines vs Salmon and found this article from the times-

Best wishes,

General Discussion / CRON-O-METER Nutrient Program
« on: August 02, 2008, 12:22:20 am »
Has anyone tried using the CRON-O-METER? You can use it in Windows, Mac or Linux. And you can use it to help you get what you need and perhaps save you from resorting to- BUYING VITAMINS!

Here's a sample I made up which I think fits the raw Paleo bill. I hope Paleos are allowed to use blenders because one of those bananas, Spinach, the kiwi and the sunflower seeds go in a smoothie. The sunflower seeds are way high in vitamin E and the Sardines are high in D and I know they're cooked :( Nearly covering all vitamins and minerals.

You can download the program here:

My Sample:

So, if you haven't played with this, you can. It's FREE!

Best wishes,
Avalon  ;D

P.S. I use Soy Sauce when eating Raw Liver  ::)

P.P.S. If you're using linux and have issues, write me.

P.P.P.S. And, you're in Calorie Restriction mode! For a long life and weight loss?  ???
