I've gone through periods where I have drank up to 3 gallons of raw milk a week. Also I have gone through periods where I would drink 3 gallons of CREAM every ten days or so. I prefer cream over milk big time. I am poor now and can no longer afford to buy my raw cream/milk. Now I just steal cream cheese from the markets!

Anyway, my question: how healthy do you all see a carnivorous diet with cooked meat would be? A fellow named Charles at Jimmy Moore's site is following such, and seems to enjoy excellent health, and he makes a good argument that one will still reap much benefit from a non-raw zero carb diet.

don't listen to us. YOU be the judge for yourself. eat cooked meat for a while and then eat raw meat for a while and find out which one tastes better and see for yourself the effects it has on your body. This way you know from experience which you prefer and what works for you.

this is a raw paleo forum so everyone is going to say: eat raw meat!

I find that I tolerate raw meat better than cooked meat. plus I find that raw meat tastes better than cooked meat. It's a no-brainer for me.

I'm 21 and 5' 3". I guess it does make sense that I shouldn't exercise for a while.

As for having to go back and forth between raw and cooking, my parents suddenly decided they don't want me eating raw as long as I'm around them. I'll have to be around them for a while to, because I'm actually living at home this year while commuting to school. It wasn't as hard to convince them that raw fish was ok, because even then they thought that somehow that's not the same as just going to a sushi restaurant. Of course, they didn't know that the only thing that makes fish sushi grade is that it's been pre-frozen. (I'm not getting pre-frozen fish though, it's much better). But as far as beef/bison goes, my dad argues that he knows microbiologists and that raw hamburgur can have e.coli and that it would definitely kill me (of course I was eating grass fed beef from a family farm, minimizing chances of e.coli and bad stuff.  Then my mom said I'm becoming a nut and said she didn't want bloody meat getting around the house. The only way I can have raw meat around there now is to make raw jerky because they wouldn't know the difference if it was cooked or raw. My mother decided that she would cook all my meat for me. She still tries to offer me tofu and soymilk when I'm looking for something to eat. :( It's really dissapointing, and this is more motivation to get my own place to live, added to the fact that I drive 40 min to school.

Anyway, I guess I have to postpone being full raw paleo for a while, but I'll still try to get raw meat and fish when I can, and eat it that way. I actually like raw much better now, cooked just tastes wierd to me.

hey, I am 21 as you and my parents did the same exact thing when I started a year ago eating raw meats around them. They actually said they wouldn't allow in the house but I completely disregarded them and kept on bringing it in and eating it. Now they don't care at all because they have seen me eat it daily for about a year now. It's a joke to them now.  Sneak the meat in and hide it in the vegetable draw and eat it at private at first. Keep at it. Once their over irrational fears subside they will see and understand that raw meat is not instant death!

tofu and soymilk?  -v  -v  -v  -v  -v  -v  -v  no way

I agree with you. raw meat tastes so much better than cooked meat. cooked meat is so dry and does not taste as good once you've eaten raw meat for a while.

if you want to gain weight you should stop exercising. when you switch your diet to something as dramatic as a raw paleo or primal diet your body is overwhelmed with "clearing house" and rebuilding back up with the better quality foods that you are consuming. rest and relax! exercising is only adding further stress to yourself.

as far as eating a lot and intermittent fasting, that can become quite the vicious cycle of not eating and then overloading with food. Try to find some stability by maybe eating lunch and dinner everyday. Stay with that for a while until you can judge for yourself when your body is hungry and you can go accordingly then.

better quality food does cost more money. no way around it there. I spend 100 dollars a month on raw cream for myself! but that is my main source of fat and I have a very good source for it. I am not  concerned about free range and organic and I usually just buy regular ground sirloin from whole foods. It is $5.50 a pound.

If you want to gain weight however, you could always go back and eat cooked foods. LOL, I would always instantly gain weight after eating cooked foods in a day or two after coming off of raw. But cooked foods never satisfied me and I would always be hungry again very shortly after eating cooked. I find eating raw is much more satisfying and I require less to eat. 

the idea of running 26.2 miles makes me want to  -v

I used to be a very good runner as a kid too! When I was 11 years old I could do a 6 minute mile completely untrained! Since going raw though my body has been completely overhauling from the previous 20 years of cooked food eating. Exercising while my body is trying to do something else makes little sense. Also, exercise is hard work and doesn't feel good!
