General Discussion / Re: Mold appearing on fresh raw meat

Can you share a picture?
Probably is not mold or probably your meat has been in a very humid place. I haven't had your situation. What I do is to dry the surfsce as fast as possible. I have had 1 moth meat on the fridge as just pea-size mold appeared.

I attached 2 pictures of mold growing in 2 different jars with liver in them. Pretty funky looking, but I've recently had some meat with a bit of mold on it and haven't had any problems, felt good in fact. I'll most likely just remove the moldy pieces and consume the rest.

Hi rawpaleodiet crew. Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday!

My wife and I recently found a butcher where we are able to purchase fresh, never frozen muscle and organ meat. We were ecstatic about this as it is something we have been searching for for some time now. Previously we had been purchasing frozen or previously frozen meat from the market.

One thing we have noticed with the fresh, never frozen meat is that mold seems to form very quickly. Where as with the frozen/previously frozen meat mold almost never formed. It is something that my wife is more concerned about than I, but I am looking for some clarity on if this is safe to eat or if we should be cutting off all mold. My thought is that because of the extra bacteria/enzymes in the fresh, never frozen meat, mold will form much faster.

Was curious of your opinions on if this is safe to eat? Should we be cutting the mold off? Any help is appreciated. Thank you!  :)

I drink water during my workouts, then have some kefir waiting for me in the car once I am finished to fully quench my thirst. I try to limit my water consumption as much as possible.

One of the problems with the AV/Primal Diet is that AV always recommended one should eat way too much raw food each dya. Yes, raw food(especially of high quality) is very healing BUT raw food contains far more (properly absorbable) nutrients than cooked foods, overall, so that one does not need to eat as much as cooked-foodists need to  on a daily basis. Plus, intermittent fasting(more or less akin to the feast-and-famine approach used by Palaeo hunter-gatherers) is also a good idea as fasting gives the body the time and  the resources needed to heal itself properly. Cinstant digestion of food is taxing on the body, and it needs a rest here and there, too. Fasting is especially needed by cooked-foodists as it gives the body some respite from the constant daily onslaught of cooking-derived toxins, but even rawists benefit therefrom.

Fasting for 3 or 4 whole days also helps reset the body's immune-system  and boosts production of new white blood cells.

Cutting out the dairy would be a good idea as well. There are many RVAFers who have various health problems from consuming raw dairy and I suspect that even some of those who claim 100% imunity are also experiencing (albeit hidden) more subtle, long-term issues therefrom.

I hate to recommend this, but it's a short-term solution for weight-loss, frequently used by many sportsmen before the weigh-in at a contest:- dry-fasting. I hear, though, it is rather a dangerous practice.

TylerDurden, thank you for your consistent assistance with our questions with RPD. It is appreciated.

Prior to discovering AV's Primal Diet I was doing intermittent fasting while on a standard Keto Diet (lots of cooked foods/fats). I feel better now eating more often throughout the day on the primal diet, but I do agree IF would be a good method for cutting weight. I used to also go on extended fasts, but always hated doing it. Perhaps I could try it again at some point since my body is much healthier now.

I am realizing the more accustom I become to eating raw meat, the less need I have to consume raw dairy. Although at this point I have a difficult time finding quality sources of raw fat other than raw cream.

Dry fasting will be kept in mind as a last resort  ;D

In addition to what Tyler said, you could do more cardio training or try high intensity interval training.

Thank you for the suggestion!

I have been following the Aajonus Vonderplanitz primal diet for close to 4 months and feel better than I ever have.

One effect of the diet is that I have gained 15 pounds and climbing (looking good!). I have no problem with this other than I have a Jiu Jitsu competition coming up in January where I would like to be under 185 (currently 192). Was just wondering if anyone had advice on how to slim down after the holidays on a RPD? I was thinking of perhaps cutting out dairy, or maybe just eating less altogether?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hello Everyone!

From 2013 to early this year I was on a plant based diet (1 year as a vegetarian, 3 years as a vegan). I convinced my wife to go on it with me, and as time went on we found our health becoming worse and worse. Early this year we broke away and started adding meat/eggs/dairy back into our diet. Started feeling better immediately, began craving it. Stumbled upon the work of Weston A Price, started adding organ meats/cod liver oil into our diet. Recently discovered the works of Aajonus Vonderplanitz. Started eating raw liver/eggs/milk, love it, feel great after I eat it.

Still new to this way of eating. Some things I am still struggling with. Like tongue for example, how does one eat tongue raw? My wife and I are looking to get pregnant soon, trying to repair the damage of the plant based/processed food diets we were on in the past. Anyway, I am extremely excited to be a part of this community and look forward to learning all I can here.

Thank you  :D
