Off Topic / Vacation
« on: January 30, 2011, 05:57:32 am »

I'm thinking of planning a little get away from the piles and piles of snow that keep dumping here.

Also I just got my Vit D checked and even with lots of RAF and supplementation I've barely popped into the acceptable range so 4-5 days on a sandy beach sounds mighty fine in that regard.

I've never been much of anywhere outside the US, and have made some similar trips to Florida around this time of year, but looking for maybe something a bit more exotic probably in a similar region: Caribbean, Mexico etc...Not Africa/Australia  :-*

Ideally I'd like to do something authentic and dirty and that isn't some lame resort, and had alot of access to healthy raw foods of course but something the lady would like, so probably not a cot in some third world friend's house...

so, anyway..heres a nice light-hearted conversation....

Where have people gone on vacation?

Journals / Lifestyles of The Raw and Paleo

We already have a before and after photos section, a welcoming intro, personal journals and so forth, but heres an opportunity to really creatively show who you are to the rest of the site and whoever else is curious or critical about this life.

So to confirm, this isn't my journal but I placed it here so that it wouldn't be on the hidden boards. Anyone can participate with photos, stories, and/or comments but as mentioned on other threads..try not to quote too many photos as if we have a bunch of people contributing it will be hard to read the comments.

Some will say we are not fit, or they some will concede that we are fit but we are not pretty or some will say we are fit and pretty but we don't have fun because we don't cook.

Lets show our pretty eyes, glowing faces, winning personalities and shining auras so that later generations can examine them in some kind of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration v. 4.02.

here is a list so far of international raw meat celebrity super spies

Supposedly this is happening, but there is no confirmation on the site.

should be worthwhile watching for anyone who has cable or I guess will be on the net tomorrow.

I wasn't sure I was going to go back to 100% RAF but I'm now on Day 10 , and figured I should start a journal at least for my own personal benefit regarding symptoms and such.  

I've done RAF before and most currently have been on a diet of meats (mostly cooked, some raw) with raw, cooked, and cultured vegetables and other fats for 5-6 weeks. I've been back eating raw butter for over 2 weeks. I have history of various illness both mild and severe but most currently have been dealing with very low energy, tiredness in the eyes, and some concentration issues which I assumed to be candida related, esp based on prior illness. I started the eating regime and taking threelac probiotics (which I have mixed feelings about) but I seemed to be doing somewhat better than I was, and over the last week or so, even more improvement in regards to energy etc...but still probably far below 'normal'. I assume at this point I'm in at least a mild ketosis, but due to the candida issue I'm wary of backtracking on my progress by any raw carbs. I did try some unheated honey, but am going to go a few more days before eatng it again to determine if its problematic. I don't have any digestive issues that I'm aware of.

Through this time I've still manged to work out 3-5 days a week, and feel good doing that, but often as soon as I eat my energy seems to drop throughout the day. raw has diminished this somewhat.

I've also been losing weight and this was a serious problem last time I did RAF, although In the last week and a half I'm eating more calorically speaking then ever probably, and perhaps havn't lost much more (at least numerically, hard to say because my elimnation hasn't been the best)

I don't log what I eat daily, but this is what has been used up this week

3 lbs pastured butter - 9600 cal

1.2 lbs suet - 4500 cal

< 2X dozen eggs minus some whites : ~1500 cal

avocado 2-3: 600 cal

1 lb beef or lamb x 7 days = ~7000 cal

vegetable juice and occasional cabbage kraut - ~800-1000 cal

on total that works out to 3445 cal/day, which I think for 6 ft./165 lbs should yield some pretty steady gain. Its really not possible for me to eat much more comfortably.

I'm a bit disappointed with the availability of quality animal foods, but at the same time, doing a good job of not being so fearful of less than optimal foods

Usually the number of WF near me has some availability of fairly inexpensive grass fed cuts, but some weeks they don't stock much or possibly sells out or something. Unfortunately for me these happen to be the weeks I've been back on 100% raw, and have been eating New Zealand lamb and grass fed ground beef. The suet this week was also from WF and unmarked so I assume it was at least partially grain-fed. I mostly got it just to make sure it was a viable/digestible fat for me before possibly ordering from another supplier, but it did seem to work and although it was so cheap I could have easily just disposed of it, I enjoyed it enough to add it to all my meals.

I've been trying to get in touch with local farms, and it seems like there are a few who are actually pasturing their meat 100% when possible and abstain from all grain feed for a winter feed of various hays and grasses. Unfortunately for whatever reasons its still impossible to obtain a fresh unfrozen product. Today I went out of my way to go to a farmers market that had a few farms I wasn't able to contact, but the situation was the same. I did buy a few lbs of frozen beef, frozen liver, and frozen pig suet. I've had raw pork before, but as of now, I'm only currently defrosting the other two :)

I'm really both flexible and weary when it comes to any absolutes about diet and healing, and am glad that although people have their own beliefs and experiences, that multiple approaches and ideas are being embraced within such a small group.

It seems like issues of optimal / not optimal come up alot on this forum.

between fresh or frozen can be more complicated if the frozen is grass feed etc..

Sometimes it is hard to decide which is best for what situation.


I have a question on fertilized eggs that don't carry any of the badges of 'free range' or 'organic' business.

My thoughts are that the fertile chickens probably have freedoms to graze and I guess the rest  is unspecified is non-organic grains.

But getting good fertile eggs non-organic seems to be better than your general organic egg fed the same grain and non fertile


Welcoming Committee / m and my experiences

Trying to keep this as short as possible just to frame where I am at.

I started with veganism/raw dieting like 4 years or so ago, and have done most permutations of that. well over a year ago I started vising this forum as a guest and but then finally settled on Aajonus' program 100% (although at first I had no real access to dairy, so I guess in some way was closer to RPD other then the juices I was doing).

I had a number of issues that did not resolve this way from depression to physical health or was exacerbated for whatever reason.

In theory I realize how RPD or Primal in the end should be the most beneficial for my brain and overall health

just trying to figure out how to get from A to B. or at least someplace good in between.

like I said I have been hovering for years so finally decided to join
