Thanks djr_81.

No idea about soap rawzi. This lamb is ready ground, but I'm just not convinced it's grass fed it seems much worse quality than some UK and I'm not confident eating it as a staple.

Time for another break from the forum I feel. I don't think I have access to any grass fed fats here, and don't enjoy the questionable lamb mince at all.

I have also had many problems adapting to raw paleo and low carb which I've posted about repeatedly, and can't deal with the ups and downs with work and life at the moment.  So back to doing the best I can with diet, and not thinking about how it's harming me too much!

Hopefully...someday...maybe I can be raw paleo. All the best in the meantime. Happy hunting!

Get the f**ck out! Coffee paleolithic. People like to justify things to themself. Milk is ok because they would have eaten from animals udders. Wholegrains, because you can hit grass and collect the grains in your hand. I think we all know the answer.

(Up at 1 am on coffee, not trying to say it's paleo)

I thought lamb was hard to grain finish, and Australian lamb is all grass fed. However, I've just searched again and apparently it is common.

Casts a big doubt on my Pakistani stuff which might be Australian.

If it had all you can eat oysters and sashimi I would destroy that buffet. I suppose that's why they stagger it.

What do they taste like? Goat meat.

And since I don't eat from old whole whale and seal carcasses that have been lying out in the sun on dirt, I'm not going to spend much time worrying about the potential risk from doing that.

I didn't say anyone had to worry about it, and I didn't give my 'take home' message from the article. I find it interesting that the author, who is a disease and parasite expert, finds that botulism is endemic to aquatic meats. Maybe other people will. Maybe not.

Well I think this is just being over sensitive about basically reposting an article, and I also think people can make up their own minds so there you go.

The article said it is endemic, I changed it to may be endemic to add objectivity.

You may well have a load of links which say the contrary, fine that's what it's all about.

I didn't post the article to prove a point, I posted it because it's interesting and the article uses the word endemic.

The article claims that eskimos  also caught botulism from raw whale, not just fermentation practices, like I said.

Sorry you consider it 'slander' but I don't see why we should have unquestioning faith in eskimo lifestyles.

Maybe it does repeat exaggerations, maybe there is something to the problems with aquatic foodstuffs. Why assume the eskimo way of life is perfect?

Anyway it has some interesting information and links for people interested in inuit and they can make of it what they will.

Thanks. That's a little reassuring.

Has anyone got any idea what the quality is likely to be?

It tastes ok, but seemed a bit queasy like grain fed meat.

It's easy to convince myself it's grain fed and gonna cause problems, but I don't know. Apparently it's hard to grain feed sheep which is why lamb is usually ok.

Modernized native life-styles and loss of indigenous knowledge have clearly affected traditional methods of preparation and preservation practices but it’s important to keep in mind that fatal botulism outbreaks aren’t a novel phenomenon strictly related to changing fermentation practices. There are several instances of Alaskan Natives contracting the illness following consumption of the raw meat of long since deceased beached whales. In fact, whalers and arctic explorers in the late 1890s and early 1900s describe entire Alaskan families dropping dead following consumption of semi-decayed whale meat

Shaffer et al described an outbreak of botulism caused by fermented salmon fish heads in 1985. The food preparer “had been taught to ferment foods by her mother, but had not prepared such foods in many years”. Instead of placing the wooden barrel in the ground, she left the barrel above ground exposed to the sun. The researchers noted that she retrospectively “recalled having been warned as a child that the sun’s rays had a “death meaning” and that fermented foods needed to be kept away from the “killing rays of the sun”

I think one reason to have it sealed is to prevent flies laying their eggs, so you don't get maggots and flies hatching. I'd imagine flies could stick their egg tube into the towel and lay eggs in the jar.

Might work in a fridge if you don't mind stinking it out.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: Lotus Root

I'm a bit wary of water borne parasites, sounds nasty. Who knows how our ancestors would have dealt with it, or if they would have avoided water roots?

This interesting article discusses botulism from incorrectly made 'high' products which has been discussed, but also mentions that botulism is a hazard of the eskimo diet due to aquatic foodstuffs e.g. raw rotted whale.

Also worth following the links at the end, they're interesting.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Lotus Root
« on: September 28, 2011, 04:11:47 pm »
Anyone had any experiences with lotus root?

I tried some cooked and thought it might be a good veg to eat raw. Would probably be a good idea to drop it in hot water for a couple of seconds to kill the parasites mentioned.

Good post KD.

eating nearly all tallow and ground animal parts..thats certainly processing. yet 99.9% of the all raw unprocessed diets seem to have less results

I think Lex had good results because he stuck with his diet for long periods of time so his body could adapt, not changing on a whim, and also because of the variety of organs in the diet. I don't necessarily think he'd get worse results eating whole organs, meat etc in the right proportions if that were convenient to do (which it can't be in this day and age really)

It seems really toxic to me. It just makes me feel sick. You know it contains a lot of lauric acid which is not found in meat?

I tried the 'coconut oil detox' as it seemed a possible way to kill and restructure gut bacteria, but by the end of it I never wanted to touch coconut oil again.

The UK isn't a paradise for raw food like the Phillippines seems to be, but it's pretty good.

Grass fed small farms if you do your homework, seafood, many fruits, grass fed lamb available at most supermarkets, reasonably priced game, cheap ethnic goat meat etc

OK it would be nice to have Slankers meat on tap etc, but many countries are a lot worse.

Health / Ultratrace - mineral supp. from the salt lake. Thoughts?
« on: September 18, 2011, 06:43:33 pm »
I've been taking this supplement from Higher Nature.

The reason I got into it was because minerals help me with anxiety, mental clarity etc and I can't stand the gelcaps with fillers on a paleo diet - they make me feel sick. I notice a big difference when I take it in terms of mental state. Sure some would say placebo, but I'm convinced.

What are your opinions of taking it longer term? It could boost minerals and be a way of hedging my bets against low magnesium paleo diet etc.

It comes from sea water ultimately from the salt lake in Utah. So sea water is not a 'food' and may have dangers. At least it doesn't have a load of crap in it though.

The military can't possibly offer separate facilities for gay staff, and I believe gay people have the right to do the job.

What's the big deal about sharing with a gay person? Gay people are well used to sharing with the rest of us, and I'm sure it would be rare for anyone to abuse the situation, no more common than other dick moves people do.

Who gives a fuck what they fantasise about in private?

I saw a woman running for the bus the other week and I liked her tits, but I didn't go and fucking wank in her face or something.

Apart from all this...they were already serving in the military under don't ask don't tell so it's all a bit academic.

@Lex yes my experience fwiw has always made me think you're right. For me so far it has been a similar experience to altitude adaption, gradually getting more energy. I think there are not many long term studies on high fat diets and as he has no interest in looking at the Inuit or Paleo angle, just draws his own conclusions.

Well for me it doesn't seem to work out that I can have a few drinks or a normal meal, then get back to raw paleo. Something about the gut. It will probably throw me out for a few days. Which is a shame, but look at all the good things about the diet.

No I don't think he covers cellular adaption. I took it to mean he wanted general info on ketosis as well.

I brought up longer term adaptions to ketogenic diets on Lyle's forum, and he weighed in to say people like you are wrong about long term changes. He doesn't seem to believe in anything beyond the initial 2 week period of brain fog etc going into a keto diet.
