General Discussion / Re: Albacore Tuna
« on: March 22, 2011, 12:49:32 pm »
I get albacore tuna sometimes from Costco. It's a big warehouse type store with membership , kindof like Sam's Club if you've heard of that

My opinion on what you should do is based on my experience with raw fish.

Currently I eat previously frozen salmon that has been thawed in the store. I also eat fresh shellfish like clams and sometimes oysters. In the summers when salmon is sold fresh, I freeze it for 7 days at -5 degrees Celcius. Similarly, if I buy other fresh fish like cod, I also freeze it for approx. 7 days at -5 degrees Celcius.

Last summer when I was cutting into fresh salmon I found a few tiny white 1 cm wriggling worms. After this I decided it's best to freeze the fish and kill the parasites. I've read anecdotes in biology textbooks that some parasites have intermediate hosts in fish but also parasitize humans. For example, the flukes.

The 7 days at -5 degrees celcius procedure is what I read online to be the standard for sushi preparation for commercial sale. Ideally I'd eat fresh but I figure freezing fish and the loss of nutrients that results is better than eating live worms. Interestingly, I don't freeze the grassfed beef that I eat.

Hey I've never tried salmon livers, but I want to. If I had access to it I would eat it if it was previously frozen or I'd freeze it myself for a while.

General Discussion / Re: Liquid Chlorophyll
« on: February 03, 2011, 04:56:51 am »
Liquid chlorophyll if from a high quality source and fresh would be a good supplement to use occasionally. I consider chlorophyll to be a very important component for a plant, so it should have some properties that may be beneficial to people too. You can't take too much of it though, and there could be a thin line between what's appropriate for you and what's unhealthy.

Personally I eat a lot of vegetables and that's usually enough. I rotate the vegetables I do eat to get a variety going. I don't juice vegetables anymore, but still have a juicer and think it is a good tool to use if used appropriately , and not excessively long-term.

Health / Re: Numbness in arms and hands on a raw paleo diet

Assuming these cramps are diet related, you could consider eating some whole raw vegetables that have high magnesium.

Athletes especially, are known to get magnesium deficiency, and a symptom is muscle cramping. When you exercise you deplete your magnesium reserves.

I can't say for sure that eating foods with magnesium will help with your muscle cramping, but that is the first approach I would most likely take for myself.

Some foods high in magnesium are: spinach, swiss chard, dandelion greens, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds. There are others, those are just some examples.

Hydration is also very important. When I exercise and am dehydrated I start cramping all over the place.

General Discussion / Re: How long can you store meat in a refrigerator?
« on: January 17, 2011, 02:13:28 pm »
Thanks Iguana I started using the fan method because I've had problems with wet meat sitting in the fridge going off....

it's really made the whole process or storing meat and cutting a piece off for a meal much easier because it is dry and not dripping wet.

When I take a slab out of the fridge to cut off a piece, I let it sit in the fan for 5 minutes and then put it back in fridge. After a couple times the outside seems to get dry enough.

Lots of raw vegetables help to keep me regular. I like eating lots of spinach and green spring mixes. Others like carrots are good too. That can help with bulking up and slowing down the flow when you relieve yourself, and it can also help with constipation which you said you didn't have.

If you decide to eat more raw vegetables, you should be aware that you need to drink plenty of water, or else all that vegetable matter will get stuck in your intestines. Water keeps it moving.

Health / Re: Anyone know some Raw Suet and Tallow sellers?
« on: January 15, 2011, 06:27:47 pm »

they have suet from bison, beef, and maybe lamb.

You may have to e-mail them and ask about the suet because it's not always listed on their products webpage.

If I thought I had tapeworms I would eat lots of garlic, pumpkin seeds, apple cider vinegar, pineapple, coconuts, ginger, hot peppers(habaneros, jalapenos), onions??,  crushed cloves in some water

Then if I felt uncomfortable about it still, then I would try the mix tinctures of wormwood, black walnut, and the crushed cloves.

Since you say you have problems with "overeating" and that when you fast/undereat you can think clearly, then that is what you should do now.

In the future, how you feel may change. Maybe undereating in the future will not help you to think more clearly, but less. In that situation, you may choose to eat more.

Exercise is important and generally if you are doing some moderate-to intense workouts (not overkill but you know the fun kind of intensity, not burnout), then you will have an increase of appetite and desire to eat more. That has been my experience that since I exercise more often my appetite has increased a lot. I can think much clearer when I eat a lot. There was time though where I felt better undereating....

So be aware that your bodily needs may change in terms of food/calories/how often you eat.

That's just wrong.

Primal Diet / Re: Is high meat more effective than probiotic supplements?
« on: January 13, 2011, 01:12:04 pm »
How did you guys manage to conjure up the courage to try high meat the first time? I know that it is much easier after the first ordeal, but how do you get around that initial mental block?

You could try eating aged meat. Like this

That can get you closer to your goal of eating high meat.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: sweet potato raw tastes good
« on: January 12, 2011, 12:46:06 am »
Lately these scientific studies do not mean as much to me anymore. When I ate the raw sweet potato, I ate it in a meal that also had some meat and other lettuce vegetables. I didn't notice any problems with digestion. On the contrary, I felt light the whole day.

Hot Topics / Re: Former Fruitarians Please Speak Up
« on: January 10, 2011, 02:14:07 pm »
Meat > fat > organs. But, I would make sure I was eating organs, even though I put meat as better.

I would also consider raising that animal product percentage to at least 20%. (Disregard if it's not relevant)

I've never been fully frutarian but I did eat most of my calories from fruit with vegetables and juices for a few months...although for some of those few months I was eating occasionally a can of fish and occasionally some raw eggs.

And I wouldn't eat any of those chicken organs or chicken meats raw because once I ate all the organs that came with a whole organic chicken from Coleman and some of the meat and the next day got food poisoning for a couple days.

Let's consider all the foods we're discussing are paleo foods.

How would an Instincto explain acquired tastes? That is, initially something may taste bad but after several samples over a period of time a person starts to not mind the taste of the food and eventually may come to enjoy it. If a person is following their instinct, they would never go past the first meal of that food and therefore would never develop the acquired taste. But not every food that requires an acquired taste is necessarily a bad food.....or would an Instincto say that the food is bad- for that person in that moment?

you can grind it yourself at home with a food processor

edit: especially cuts like chuck roast which are fairly difficult to eat in whole form with all of the connective tissue attached throughout the meat

edit edit: but it's easy to overeat with ground meats. For someone who has no appetite and is unhealthily skinny this can be a good thing. For others, it can be a easy way to end up eating too much until it's too late and you have a stomach ache.

« on: January 08, 2011, 09:15:51 am »
Lately I've been eating more vegetables rather than juicing them.

On another note, if you are constipated for a whole week you can drink vegetable juice as a strategy.

Primal Diet / Re: Raw Unheated Honey
« on: January 02, 2011, 08:40:56 pm »
For those who want to eat unheated honey but get teeth problems I recommend brushing your teeth immediately after eating the honey. Since it is very sticky, it can wreck your teeth unless you clean them.

I make it a point before I choose to eat any honey that I will brush my teeth immediately after. If I'm not willing to brush afterward, I won't eat it.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Re: How much water do you drink?
« on: January 02, 2011, 08:36:07 pm »
Lots of water. I don't overdo it or intentionally bloat myself with it, but I find water helps me to digest food.

The more fruit I eat the less water I drink, proportionally.

If I work out, I feel good during the workout when I have drank several glasses of water a couple hours prior.

General Discussion / Re: How to store Beef Mince
« on: January 02, 2011, 08:28:04 pm »
For the steaks, I would not flip it every hour as that is quite time consuming. Every 12 hours is best, 24 hours is ok too.

Ideally you should get meat hooks so you don't ever have to flip it.

I would store ground beef in a sealed plastic bag with all the air sucked out if I was going to eat it that evening. That's because it's surface area is more exposed than a steak, so it will oxidize faster.
