Butters, did you ever try to eat any meat raw? It's a barrier to overcome. You just have to say to yourself that you are going to take the plunge. Go get the meat, sit down with a knife and fork. Tell yourself -here we go! And eat the damn thing 8)

I'm currently "half-ass raw paleo"  ;), sometimes full raw paleo, keep the things you like to keep from the diet you have, just eat raw meat, liver, eggs, bonemarrow, fish in addition and see where it takes you.

I always feel terrible when eating coconut oil. Since goodsamaritan promotes a coconut oil detox and this is said to be very helpful for yeast infections I decided to try it. I fasted on coconut oil (2tbs every 2 hours until i reached 14 spoons for 2 days) and sorry for giving information, expelled a lot of white threadlike stuff for three days (better out than in). I think most of the problems with yeast start with digestion.

According to goodsamaritan a coconut detox for 2-3 days, repeated every 1-2 weeks has cured jock itch. You could check his blog. I dont think wodgina had any luck with this cleanse, maybe it's not for everyone.

Have you been to a dentist yet? Sometimes it both feel and look a lot worse than what it is. If you decide to go, I think it's better to find a dentist-center that takes equipment and education seriously, not an old dentist who works by himself putting all the money in his own pocket instead of getting new knowledge and technology.

I thought my teeth problems was a lot worse than what they actually were and I'm really glad I went to the dentist cause all the dental problems I had was related to caries behind old fillings, nothing nature could have handled in my case I belive.

I started eating raw meat after reading cure tooth decay, and now that I've had the problems taken care of by a dentist I'm still keeping up raw paleo. I'm starting to feel so much better than I used to and not just the teeth.

I tried to eat a raw potato once, but didn't have much success with that  ;) Do you mean baked or boiled potatoes?  :)

Thank you forthehunt, I'm doing partly raw at the moment. I was "sick as a dog" for a few weeks, even worse on the raw paleo the first 3 weeks, but seems is was more an extreme healingcrisis. My teeth and gums were throbbing (it felt like they were planning their departure), fever, flu, sweating and pulse, it was a mess! My mom was helping me shop for food and supported this whole raw craze even though we wondered some times :o She said I was malnourished and was chocked on the amounts of foods that went down. I have a lot more energy now than before I started eating raw, and the teeth are a lot better.

I had an intense nightmare that my teeth was rotting and got an appointment with the dentist who clean my teeth, never been so white before. Enamel is a bit weakened some places, but only one new cavity and some issues with two old fillings. I was very relived, and tried eating some "ordinary cooked food" but find what I already knew, that food is making me feel uncomfortable. So I'm trying to stay full with some crackers and cheese (makes me feel full), on top of the fruit, eggyolks, meat, liver, bonemarrow and fish - this works for now. I've had healingcrises before since I got sick a few years ago after using antibiotics, but I've not been this sick for years so I was hoping it was a good thing and so it turns out. Before the rawpaleo I felt my health was declining fast, it feels like jumpstarting the system! I do still have health issues like Candida overgrowth, but I feel I finally found the diet that makes my body utilize what I eat and on the right track.

Thank you for the support!

I'm having a problem not being hungry all the time, I eat bonemarrow, fat fish, beef. I'm still having some kind of flu-feeling, my puls is so high, I can't sleep. I was not healthy when I started eating raw, but how long will it take before I feel better, I guess everyone is different.

I'm still having some flu symptoms, but am not feeling as bad as last week. I don't have much energy, my puls is still high 72-80. I don't mind the diet, it require a lot more eating than what I'm used to, but it's nice not feeling full after meals.

I don't check my puls all the time :D I think it's connected to the tiredness and sometimes anxiety I feel. Last night I was awake eating bonemarrow and before I went to sleep puls was down to 60 (that's a first for a long time) and I felt so calm. Three hours later I wake up with puls in 84, feeling I need sugar. I usually eat one pear in the morning, don't like going overboard with the fruit, trying to find out what works.

It's only been 2,5 weeks so far, so I guess I just have to have patience, but at the moment there is no other diet I would rather do.

I'm considering to get some edible clay. What kind of clay have you used? Is it good for remineralizing teeth, general wellbeing etc.?

Thank you for your kind advice  :) I leave my meat/fish open on a plate in the fridge. The raw egg yolk were the ones I prefer of the organic ones in the store. I think it triggered some sort of detox with the apple, cause getting that stuff out of my system made me feel a bit better after. This is the first time I only ate the yolk, this flush never happened when I ate the raw egg whole and I've been doing that a lot lately.

Today I'm feeling a lot better, like I really am on the right track. I've felt sick for weeks, that why i wanted to try raw paleo, my last hope since nothing else worked. I've been so sick the last few days, with so much pain in my teeth and gums, exhausted, throatpain, fever etc., but last night the fever burned out.

Yesterday I started eating a really fatty fish, herring, that's just delicious. I've also been eating calf liver the last few days, I used to like liver, but raw it is simply a delicacy! I never felt that cooked meat/fish gave me any benefit, maybe that's why I became lazy and did not provide much variety. But now I just want to eat everything. This is the first night I've slept all through the night, maybe woke up one time and passing out. All the other nights I've been up eating in the middle of the night. I'm still hungry, but think I will survive  ;)

In the beginning of this diet I felt like I might be on the right track, nice even funny dreams at night and no problems with digestion, but I started feeling worse. Two days ago I ate an apple a few hours later 1 eggyolk, after this I felt violently ill, water came out in the  stool along with something that might have been gallstones? (maybe it was pieces of fruit) I passed more of this stuff, but I've been having stomach pain since yesterday and have not gone yet, maybe it's making me depressed as well. I'm hungry all the time even though I eat fats.. Sorry if I'm this is coming out negative, at least I'm not sitting around waiting for the day to pass, like I did a few days ago. I was sick before this diet, in a way I feel worse now than before I started it. I don't know if I believe in healing crisis and I don't know if this is one. Is it common to feel sick in the beginning, if you are sick before you start? Today I have a slight fever.

It's been about 10 days on the diet. I'm feeling a bit better from the "flu symptoms", but I'm still sweating and having high puls, feeling a bit anxious. Also very hungry even though I've eaten a fruit/vegetables in addition to meat and lots of bone marrow, getting some fish tomorrow. What worries me is that a lot of mucus came out and now I have no saliva, my mouth is completely dry.

I would have a hard time getting started on this diet if it was not for your help. I was sick the last two weeks before I started on raw meat, and this first week I've been sweating an feeling sick with pain in my gums, teeth, throat, but it seems it was/or turned into some sort of cold. The pain in my teeth got worse from the new diet, but it's more like a flu-tooth pain. I've been having eczema behind one ear for more than 10 years, a week ago this looked really bad, but after this week it's nearly gone :o

What kind of fats should I replace the marrow with? I just had a pear now for the first time in ages, I feel I need carbs.

Is the egg white a bad idea? When I've been eating raw eggs I usually take the whole egg in a glass and swallow it in two sips. I have started to like the egg white. Does anyone has long experience with both? whole egg or just yolks?

It kind of buildt up to 1,2 kg, I was just so very hungry.. It's the best quality I can find, it says it's from grazing animals, just hope they get grass in the winter as well. I've been eating some eggs, but have not for a few days. I'm not sure if my teeth can handle fruits right now, but will try a pear and see how it goes. I'm a bit confused how I will go about this diet. Am thinking about gettins some fish, I guess it will take some time to adapt and find the best sources to buy from, working on that.

I weigh 57 kg and am 1,70 tall.

Thank you for your input and advice Iguana and goodsamaritan.

I'm eating mostly fresh, but always leave what's left to air in the fridge. I think it both taste and smell good, now that I'm more used to it, juicy.

Oil pulling is taking a vegetable oil and swishing in your mouth for a few minutes and then spitting it out. Preferably using Sesame oil or sunflower oil. It reduces the amount of bacteria in the mouth, clears sinuses. If you search this forum it's a lot of people having good experiences with it when having teeth/gum problems. I think I would go crazy without it.

I've been struggling the last three weeks as I feel I've been getting worse, I have high puls, very tired, have decided not to stress anymore. I've been eating raw meat/bonemarrow for a week now, I'm up to 1,2 kg raw meat and very hungry all the time. I only eat a few vegetables that are not sweet. My teeth are sensitive, I'm doing oilpulling with sesame oil. I wonder if my gums got inflamed by drinking milk the last two weeks. Since I started eating meat I've been sweating a lot especially at night, feeling some flue like symptoms. For a few nights I had nice dreams, but now it's more nightmares. I wake up every 3 hours. There is a new moon tomorrow, hope it will be a good one.

About doing oil pulling with VCO, i felt my gums became irritated from it. Maybe it's the anti-nutrients. Swishing with cod liver oil has a calming effect on both teeth and gums. And cutting out milk has been great help as well.

The avocado I had yesterday that made my teeth hurt, the cod liver oil managed to calm them down before I went to sleep. Seems cod liver oil has positive effect when in contact with teeth.

Does anyone feel like the cod liver oil works? I understand this is very important Weston Price supplement.

Is it useless if not fermented?

I decided to leave the dairy out, I have two teeth that objects to milk and I feel there is less mucus when leaving dairy out completely.

Why is it you need to eat so much more food on this diet? I used to feel full on two cooked lambchops and three boiled eggs. Just ate 3 beefs and bonemarrow, still I'm very hungry. I guess I have to eat something sweet or more fats? How much meat is it common to eat a day? At least bonemarrow is cheap.

It's just been a few days on the raw diet and my dreams are for the first time as I can remember pleasant. Normally my dreams are complicated, feels "unsolved" and a bit stressful, then there is the nightmares.

Not long ago I dreamt I was losing my teeth. I've been having this dream a lot the last year as a fruit-/vegetarian and also with a very restricted cooked diet. I've also been "falling" a lot in my bed, wonder if this will continue.

The last few days, my dreams has been interesting with nice turns and surprises, for the first time in ages I'm enjoying dreaming. If there was a surprise in the past, it would never be a good one. It might be the raw meat/bone marrow.
